YES.  Oh definitely a great memory of that last visit to the UK in 2007 was the Guinness that flowed like water.  And it somehow tasted so much better than what we get imported here in the States.

Oh yah! I remember when I came back and we went to the local Irish Bars...somehow didnt feel the same, and that magic never quite came back... I do believe a well-poured Guiness, with that brilliantly enforced "wait" will always retain its power to stop time in its tracks while we..

My grandma did the two quinces trees or better BIG bushes for their blossoms in spring and bright yellow fruits in autumn. Our oldest studies arboristic and tries to keep them alive.

When harvesting: imagine a big heavy fruit with 120*90mm size and some 7 metres above ground. The fruit has no stem. It is directly connected to the branch. Picking near ground is easy, But trying to move a fruit picker on a 5 metre telescope pole between fruit and branch is tricky. And if not carefully fruits will fall all the 7metres accellerating, with a weight often a bit more than a pound ;)

But yes quinces are nice, juice, wine, liqueur, tartes, or going mediterran: lamb with roasted spiced quinces....

I dont think we have quite the same fruit here Chattius ...but I can always look up its more modern version at the alcohool store down the street... version 1.2?

And... awwwww... day after The Great Pumpkin Landing :cry:  

But..it was a wonderful year this year with all of you, friends, friends and more friends celebrating and sharing! :hugs: 

The Halloween theme here is always so appreciated, and keeps motivating us to pour on the love for Sacred another 14 years!   

We have made even more new friends in spooky costumes this year and I feel like our impact on gaming, this game and ...the world...have gone far to show that a strong, very polite, and respectful  community is worth the  hard work

:heart: :hugs:

Big thanks to all of our world-class modders  and posters along with the rest of our happy family out there who keep showing up at this tiny bustling website in the far corners of the SacredVerse and who have made DarkMatters home!!


I got a few more  pix for today as we'll run this skin (our favorite! :bounce: ) a little longer this week as we want to do some  (sigh :blink: ) updates on the forum... here's a pic of my mom (74!!) she works at Seniors Residence in Potomac Maryland.

My mom has always been so festive and all the residents there love the efforts she puts into coming to work for them dressed well and in celebration...

Happy Halloween Mom!  (She's on the bottom left )

In the meantime I've got a wine order coming in today, huzzah! :drunkards:


a *cough* few bottles

Ha ha, you've got me there. It's a pack I've divided between my mom and my father-in-law, seven bottles for me. We've visited a producer in Douro during our holidays and I've managed to buy those bottles we've tasted for 40% less a piece! Very nice deal. Plus a wine we love from Alentejo that is always very expensive that I've managed to get for 25% less of its promotional pvp.

You've got to love wine fairs! :woot:

Oh, hi and mighty pumpkin! Thanks ye for your wonders, sweets and pain of cavities... thank you for the the scares, boos and requisite wines and beers we've had to imbibe during these testing times.

Oh..and for next Halloween... not to be rude... please wear a mask?

Thank you sir, fly back to us again !
