"Foreseeing, their decay each howre so fast came on,
Under the axes stroak, fetcht many a grievous grone,
When as the anviles weight, and hammers dreadfull sound,
Even rent the hollow Woods, and shook the queachy ground."

"Joves Oke, the warlike Ash, veyn'd Elme, the softer Beech,
Short Hazell, Maple plaine, light Aspe, the bending Wych,
Tough Holly, and smooth Birch, must altogether burne:What should the Builder serve, supplies the Forger's turne;
When under publike good, base private gaine takes holde,

And we poore woefull Woods, to ruine lastly solde."

Michael Drayton (1563-1631

The Battle of Bannockburn

Sir Robert the Bruce at Bannockburn
Beat the English in every wheel and turn,
And made them fly in great dismay
From off the field without delay.

The English were a hundred thousand strong,
And King Edward passed through the Lowlands all along.
Determined to conquer Scotland, it was his desire,
And then to restore it to his own empire.

King Edward brought numerous waggons in his train,
Expecting that most of the Scottish army would be slain,
Hoping to make the rest prisoners, and carry them away
In waggon-loads to London without delay.

The Scottish army did not amount to more than thirty thousand strong;
But Bruce had confidence he'd conquer his foes ere long;
So, to protect his little army, he thought it was right
To have deep-dug pits made in the night;

And caused them to be overlaid with turf and brushwood
Expecting the plan would prove effectual where his little army stood,
Waiting patiently for the break of day,
All willing to join in the deadly fray.

Bruce stationed himself at the head of the reserve,
Determined to conquer, but never to swerve,
And by his side were brave Kirkpatrick and true De Longueville,
Both trusty warriors, firm and bold, who would never him beguile.

By daybreak the whole of the English army came in view;
Consisting of archers and horsemen, bold and true;
The main body was led on by King Edward himself,
An avaricious man, and fond of pelf.

The Abbot of Inchaffray celebrated mass,
And all along the Scottish lines barefoot he did pass,
With the crucifix in his hand, a most beautitul sight to see,
Exhorting them to trust in God, and He would set them free.

Then the Scottish army knelt down on the field,
And King Edward he thought they were going to yield,
And he felt o'erjoyed, and cried to Earl Percy
"See! See! the Scots are crying for mercy."

But Percy said, "Your Majesty need not make such a fuss,
They are crying for mercy from God, not from us;
For, depend upon it, they will fight to a man, and find their graves
Rather than yield to become your slaves."

Then King Edward ordered his horsemen to charge,
Thirty thousand in number, it was very large;
They thought to o'erwhelm them ere they could rise from their knees,
But they met a different destiny, which did them displease;
For the horsemen fell into the spik'd pits in the way,
And, with broken ranks and confusion, they all fled away,
But few of them escap'd death from the spik'd pits,
For the Scots with their swords hack'd them to bits;
De Valence was overthrown and carried off the field,
Then King Edward he thought it was time to yield.

And he uttered a fearful cry
To his gay archers near by,
Ho! archers! draw your arrows to the head,
And make sure to kill them dead;
Forward, without dread, and make them fly,
Saint George for England, be our cry!

Then the arrows from their bows swiftly did go,
And fell amongst them as thick as the flakes of snow;
Then Bruce he drew his trusty blade,
And in heroic language said,
Forward! my heroes, bold and true!
And break the archers' ranks through and through!
And charge them boldly with your swords in hand,
And chase these vultures from off our land,
And make King Edward mourn
The day he came to Bannockburn.

So proud Edward on his milk-white steed,
One of England's finest breed,
Coming here in grand array,
With horsemen bold and archers gay,
Thinking he will us dismay,
And sweep everything before him in his way;
But I swear by yon blessed sun
I'll make him and his army run
From off the field of Bannockburn.

By St. Andrew and our God most high,
We'll conquer these epicures or die!
And make them fly like chaff before the wind
Until they can no refuge find;
And beat them from the field without delay,
Like lions bold and heroes gay
Upon them! ? charge! ? follow me,
Scotland's rights and liberty!

Then the Scots charged them with sword in hand,
And made them fly from off their land;
And King Edward was amazed at the sight,
And he got wounded in the fight;
And he cried, Oh, heaven! England's lost, and I'm undone,
Alas ! alas! where shall I run?
Then he turned his horse, and rode on afar,
And never halted till he reached Dunbar

Then Bruce he shouted, Victory!
We have gained our rights and liberty;
And thanks be to God above
That we have conquered King Edward this day,
A usurper that does not us love.

Then the Scots did shout and sing
Long live Sir Robert Bruce our King'
That made King Edward mourn
The day he came to Bannockburn!

I have read your recent post concerning The Bruce with great interest, dear Rapparree, and I am grateful to you for posting it. Reading it occasioned a delightful respite from the plebian travails of the day and provided a short and welcome excursion to a simpler time, when heroism and wits could be trusted to defeat arrogance and authoritarian meddling. Such a simple landscape, with such strong men roaming through it, revives my heart and brightens my eye, and I am the better for having encountered your post.

I do not understand why you provide no accreditation; did you fear that revealing your fan-boy relationship with McGonagall would make Mom think less of you? Do not fasch thyself on that acount, sir; it could not happen!!

I did a statistical analysis of MacGonagall's writings awhile back and discovered that he has rhymed the words "dismay" and "without delay" at the end of various lines of verse no fewer than 11,712 times in his poetry! No one else has ever equalled that, and that is why MacGonagall stands head and codpiece above the rest!!!!!

Okay, this just in: Amos and Rapparee have violated standing ordinances regarding the number of posts allowed by any one person on any single thread during a period of 1-5 years. They both reached and surpassed their limit about 12 hours ago.

This means, Amos and Rap, that you guys have to stop posting here for a cooling off period of 6 months! You also have to pay a $5 per extra post fee to Microsoft and issue a public apology.

Sorry about that. I know it'll be tough doing without your daily fix. I suggest substituting copious amounts of acohol and casual sex during the intervening period, but stay away from using snuff! That way lies madness.

It is a good road if you want to see about a billion rocks and trees and the occasional moose. Let's hope the moose sees you too and stays off the road!

Anyone have an idea about how to remove a small screw -- I mean small. It's in too far to use vise-grips, and I've doused it with lighter fluid, oil, Liquid Wrench, and high-grade gun oil; I've even soaked a rag in whatever stuff I used at the time and let it sit on the screw overnight. I've used a scratch awl to pick around the screw as well. I've buggered up the slot enough that I don't want to do that anymore unless I know it's going to succeed. And yeah, I've done the hammer tap thing on a screwdriver and "rocking" the screw in both directions.

Drill it... carefully to get part way in and then crush the head to get a grip on it. But, that IS a bit of a gamble with a very small screw.

Drill press and a good machinist to drill out the center, reverse thread the new hole and put a threaded left-hand rod or bar in it which you can then grip with a vicegrip and get enough leverage to spring the seized threads. Finding a replacement may be tricky although you could have a good machinist make you one.

Gawdn what a cycle. We hauled out of bed at 0330 hours Saturday, left the house by 0430 and arrived at Mudlark's spread by 1100 or os. There was a wonderful turn out -- maybe sixty people or so and all of them thought she was the best friend they ever had. Much sentiment was exchanged. Then we began jamming and trading great songs, and feeding and drinking dark beer and swapping stories of Nancy. Then the remarkably talented Mudcatters Bev and Jerry escorted us home to their house in the back hills of Cambria, away by the sea, and we spun yarns and ate dinner and crashed on their futons around 11. Then we rolled out at 0600 and went back to Atascadero to pick up Nancy's external HD so BBW could work on it for the estate, and drove all the way down from there through San Luis Obispo, Santa Barbara, Venture, Los Angeles and back home to San Diego where we have finished unpacking everything.

It wass a wonderful memorial gathering, ric on tears and music and expressions of loss and love. Nancy had an amazing spectrum of beloved friends.

The cost of manufacture is not that much more than the others.
