Thanks for posting contests. I rarely submit, but sometimes I think I ought to, depending on the theme. This one is interesting, but alas, it's not my cup of tea. :-) I'll look forward to seeing more contest posts on your blog. Thank you so much!

From A to Z Challenge,

Thanks for visiting my blog. I'm not much of a writer, but I'm always up for learning new things. I'm a new follower and hopefully I'll learn a bit more about writing. If nothing more than to make my blog more interesting.

Hephestus also walked with a limp. But that is the extent of my limited knowledge.

The only word that caught my attention there, was Vulcan. I'm a closet Trekie.

On a slightly unrelated note, I think the weaving of tapestries and their final effect is undeniably grand!
