New blog

Technically I could do this in my other blog, but writing about history in a blog called "Ottawa Nature" seemed a bit silly, so I decided to make an entirely new blog specifically for history. I'm a bit of a nut that way.

Media Tempestae (and I imagine somebody is going to correct my spelling at some point. Since I don't speak latin, I figure no harm, no foul) comes from the renaissance. It means "middle ages" but it also means "the intervening storm". I'm going to write about whatever tickles my fancy, so the middle age/ renaissance title doesn't make much sense either, but I DO like puns in effectively dead languages. Such is life.
