Do not just stand and smile, it is my duty as a knight to charge forth - and your duty as my squire to join me. ;)

Sire, Rocinante has become distracted by some Galician mares by the bulrushes..

Lyzardly says:

I must forgive Rocinante then. For I can ignore the most beautiful of maids as they cannot compare to my Dulcinea. Rocinante has no such strength, being merely an animal as he is.

But wait, those mares must be enchantments created by the evil wizards who attempts to thwart my every chance at honor. Let Rocinante not leads us into this certain destruction!

Onward!

Thank you for indulging me in such geeky fun!

I am not always around people who have things that I have and so they cannot play games like this with me. :(

*sigh* I miss school...

You're very welcome. I think that mobloggers, despite tremendously varied backgrounds, have a lot in common, particularly a love of fun and gadgets. They also seem to have above average knowledge of films and books and music. I love it! It's one of the things that makes it so addictive :D

I have nothing so intellectual to add, so i'm just going to say: Ooo! windmill pretty!

Looked up something intellectual to say: In the 17th centrury there were about 90,000 working windmills in Britain, and no-one cared. In the 21st century there are just a handfull, and everyone hates them. Especially David Bellamy.

See, a history lesson AND subtle social comment.

Yes, I bet people complained about wind-powered flour mills and water pumps in the past. Now we think they are all quaint. I quite like windmills, new and old :D

*at the risk of sounding sad...*

I don't understand the design of windmills, if the blades were vertical rather than horizontal it would capture the wind in all directions - but they never are. It's such an obvious design feature I can't believe I'm the first to realise it, there must be a reason why they are designed the way they are...

There are vertical-bladed windmills. We use some of them (small ones) in the Antarctic to power remote weather stations. There were also some ships with that design instead of sails *searches for link*. :D
