I've been fascinated by legends and how they got their starts for as long as I can remember. So when it came time to pick out research topics, King Arthur was at the top of my list. Now, mind you, I wrote this when I was in high school, and when I made my very first webpage, I put in a "Library" with some of my papers.

Yes, I do that when I'm alone and bored. ;) And I found out that my paper was actually being linked to as a source for the history of Arthurian legend. There was even a college class that listed it on it's syllabus at one point! If you type "king arthur truth" into Google it's the number two hit.
I'm not bragging, mind you. It still baffles me to this day!
So you can go and see it at the original location. Keep in mind I made that page back in 97! Jeez that was ten years ago! Or you can just read it here. :-D

and the rest Caucasian. The ethnic
diversity was virtually non-existent. If
your religion was anything other than Baptist or Methodist it was best just not
to mention it, and if your sexual or gender identity would not one day land you
in a happy, little nuclear family then you took a deep breath, tamped it down,
and waited until …
So in an effort to make cooking low carb easier and faster, (See Plan #2) I've been simplifying and deep cleaning my kitchen. That effort is going well. I'm nearly complete.
Have you ever looked at something and realized it was so dirty that throwing it out and buying a new one would be way easier. Yeah, that's where me and my ventahood are. I cleaned it for half an hour last night, and it's STILL filthy! I realllly wanted to just disconnect it and toss that sucker out of the backdoor. Sadly I had to think about Plan #1.
As I was cleaning my canisters, I noticed all the nicks and chips in them. It didn't make me love them any less, mind you. It actually just made me worry a bit what might happen if they broke. I flipped over the cookie jar and there was a URL. I got these from my mom and dad about 20 years ago before I got married. In terms of the internet that's a LONG time ago. That's almost pre-Google for heaven's sake. So naturally the …
