A Randomly Selected Newspaper Headline:

The following is a randomly selected newspaper headline from many years ago:

Welcome to my blog. Please feel free to leave a comment. I assure you I always read and appreciate everything you have to say. Unfortunately, thanks to Blogger being, well . . . Blogger, I can not respond to comments nor leave any on your blogs. They simply disappear into the ether. Occasionally I will remember to respond in the next blog post I put up, but usually these good intentions slip my mind. So if you want to ask a question or get a response to any comments you may have please leave an email address or other contact method in your comment and I will get back to you.

I have also added a separate page to the blog for the Tower of Magic with a brief summary of all the rooms of the ToM in the one spot. The link is just below this and above the main body of the blog, or you can just click here.

Photos are back!!

Well, it seems Blogger has finally fixed whatever was making a meal out of trying to add photos. If everything is working as it is meant to, you'll see a photo below showing the ceiling of the bedroom:

The ceiling is covered with strips medieval style tiles printed on paper, separated by beams of balsa wood. The beams were given a bit of extra detail by running a relief sticker along the centre of each one. The upper section of the walls are covered with more of the tiles, the lower parts of the walls will be covered in panelling painted white to match the beams.

The goal for this week is to finish the fireplace and cornicing/coving in the dining hall and to lay as much of the floor upstairs as possible.


  1. The castle is really coming along a treat! I love the ceiling :-)

    (I too have had some Blogger "issues" ~ I eventually found out that I had to go into my settings to change to the new editor. I didn't even realise that there WAS a new editor LOL)

  2. I love the way you have done your ceiling. It looks really dramatic.
    I am always lazy with ceilings but maybe next time....

  3. Thanks Sharon and Janice. A lot of people have been having troubles with Blogger lately, let's hope everyone is now getting sorted out.
