Last Official Logres Update for 2020: Making Progress. 😁

Currently made it to source 598 out of 2736. That is approximately 22% (21.85672514619883…). Outlining the remainder of the year: this is the last official update for 2020. That does not mean that I might not post another update or two before 2021. It all depends on how much progress I continue to make. Technically, my “off week” for November started yesterday and will go through 5 December, inclusively. I have former school mates visiting 3rd through 5th. I will be “off schedule” for the remainder of December. That means I will still accomplish things, but at my leisure. The first work day for 2021 is scheduled as Sunday 3 January. Until then, True Believers, Excalibur! 😎

What Do You Believe?

For thousands of years people believed in magic.  They were simple folk – often afraid and confused – unable to grasp the scientific world around them. They struggled to: * explain natural events * understand why bad things happened * barter with fate * accept their place and rank in society * influence things around them * blame […]
