The Lord of the Manor would have me announce:
All is well at the Manor, however we did have a serious plague scare.
Without getting much into detail we had an outbreak of boils and
pustules after Goatsie the traveling pot mender visited for a few
It got bad too...
I won't get into all the squeezing, ducking, and diving that was going
on, but turns out it was not the plague. Instead it appears to have
been the combination of high fructose corn syrup we were putting in the
gruel, a run on Mountain Dew, the sugar beet harvest, and the wagon load
of chocolate turtles, jelly filled Long Johns, and caramel prunes we'd

we'll get the rest of her cleaned up, eventually...
ORH-Just in case, for any odd reason, you happen to need to know...
