The MacColin Bros. Occasional Mercantile & Sutlery
TO DO: We need all tents down and out with some raking the area clean for room to get the major chunks ready to travel.We have bundling, marking, box filling, lots of cleanup and some major lifting to do. Check with Chris, who is in charge. Much is down and ready for bundling: Greenman, Veranda roof and deco, pike rack, crafts, forge, and moving fast.
The Latest from the Chief...

Notes From Tournaig
Home today for sleep, washing, storing, laundry after a couple of long nites. Sorting recycling (a real financial help) needs some help, as bee allergy and their presence in the mix (aluminium, CA bev plastic, glass that shouldn't be there). As the security is disapearing, I must recomend clearing sooner than later. The big body count tasks are not the heavy ones, with only veranda walls and the kitchen loading requiring power.
Please give feedback about MacColin.com, and email me notice of any problems on the web site. What I don't see or know about doesn't get fixed.
The big batch of pictures is 800x600 in PhotoBucket with Faire 2013, with larger available from me. Do
send me links to your batches to put into the links at the bottom of the
pictures page, and let me know which shots should be on MacColin.com, and
which should go away. It should be enough to interest and remind us, but
not overburden. FAIRE11 needs to get
trimmed down to size. Little has been added to FAIRE12, as Facefook has
filled that part for us, but outside the family, MacColin.com needs to
present us for te outside world, and new people, so let me know what you
think would be best there.
The 'Clan App' covers
more than the address for the Seannachie so one is needed for
each member, including kids.
ID Project needs a clear, small
150x150 pixel picture of each face, kids included just like apps, that
will read when printed by a b&w printer so we have a reference. It
helps in learning 16th & 21st century names and returning goods.
Send approriate pictures with 16th & 21st century names directly to
Odo. You can also get marks
approved, registered, and published. That also means
you can pick a picture you like, instead of me making do with what I
can, including clowning.
