Nope, it's in Northshield (Midrealm, north of Calontir).  I have many
friends and a few relatives up there, and whether blood or time I still
don't understand some things about them.  (I think the area was settled by
Norwegians and not Swedes, which may be why they were confused.  Couldn't
understand why we ate bugs.)

And yes, Stefan, it was a completely period feast, even to things being
grown in hand-tilled fields, by Mistress Aramanthra, who is a Laurel for her
cooking and research on same.  I still remember the leftovers from this one
quite fondly.

Trying to run a Presidential campaign is a little like driving a freight
train while you're still building the tracks.
