Renaissance, a definition or two:

a. A revival of intellectual or artistic achievement and vigor. (which I should apply, with said vigor, to this blog…yes, I have been slacking!)

b. The Maryland Renaissance Festival: “The Maryland Renaissance Festival is a recreation of a 16th century English village. Our village is named Revel Grove, and is set on a beautiful 25-acre wooded site with 85 acres of free parking. The village consists of craft and food booths, five pubs, ten major stages, a Jousting Arena and lots of games.

Every day is a Festival Day in Revel Grove, in honor of a visit by Henry VIII and his Royal Court. As such, the village will have entertainment, crafts, food, and frivolity fit for a king!” (The previous comment was snipped from the website, as bait, to entice you to go visit yourself.)

It's a freebie tune that YouTube provides with it's audioswap feature. I lost the info on it as I was wrestling late into the night trying to find a clip of the right length (all were mis-labeled, which is an issue I haven't had a problem with before :p !) Anyway, the Ren Fest was a lot of fun! :)

Looks like a fun day.

I've been faithfully checking your blog to see an update on where you now are living. Are you sharing? I look forward to posts about another land and learning.
