The Pioneer.  Here is a man with a rugged soul, a steadfast gaze and a mettle of pure steely grit.  He tames the land; he forges the uncharted territory of unknown mysteries with silent wisdom; his bed is made in a ruby red sunset and an endless horizon.  His mustache could castrate...

Tea and Top hats: Reviving Regency England at the Jane Austen Festival
Bare-knuckle boxing anyone? Not all Saturday afternoons are created equal. This year’s fifth annual Jane Austen Festival at Locust Grove brought to life the characters, fashions and Regency flair of the beloved 19th century author.
It’s a fair day; a soothing combination of breeze, sun and cloud that welcomes a stroll outside. The normally wearisome heat has parted company, inviting a parade of colorful gowns to saunter on the arms of dapper gentlemen. Parasols bloom in the sunshine and afternoon tea is casually served...
