  1. Disheartening Performance Related Announcement

    Forgive my over long silence on these boards; I hate that my return to the Pub is occasioned by the following announcement (and I hope I have posted this in the correct sub forum - so much has changed since I last browsed these boards): To All of our Dear Fans and Friends, At the time of this writing, it appears we, The Ladies of the Salty Kiss, will not be returning to Midwest Renaissance Festival in 2011 despite the face-to-face “you are in” we received at the Great Bend Renaissance Festival in June 2010 and the verbal contract struck over the phone in March 2011. Suddenly, both of the previous conversations and agreements, just like our paper application sent into the Festival office in February 2011, have been forgotten/overlooked/misplaced/or disregarded. Since Renaissance Festival of the Midlands, the predecessor festival of Midwest Renaissance Festival, first moved to the Westfair Fair Grounds, The Ladies of the Salty Kiss have only missed performing at this show one time … the year RFotM/MRF was bought by the folks from the St. Louis show. It greatly saddens my heart that those folks who have always viewed The Ladies of the Salty Kiss, our unique and original brand of comedy, and strong females as a threat for what ever reason, have finally succeeded in keeping us from a much beloved event, and the home festival of Amethyst (who in recent years was featured in an article on the festival published in the area newspapers). It further saddens me that we will not be able to hold our traditional Veterans Salute to our brave men and women who have served this country so very well. I humbly apologize to our Veterans for failing in being there to personally thank and honor you for all the freedoms you continue to insure for me and mine. Yours in Service, Captain Emerald Shaunassey and The Ladies of the Salty Kiss
  2. Call for Urgent Festival Assistance

    Calling All Sea Dogs and Scoundrels of Some Repute (and Those who have hearts bigger than their deck): I be needing your help, my brethern and sisters of the seas. Due to health and pregnancy complications, the lady who was going to provide children's entertainment and games for the Illinois Renaissance Festival has had to pull out under physician's orders. Our thoughts, prayers, and wishes for an end to the complications and a safe delivery for both mom and baby go out to this courageous lady. Sadly however, we, the board members of the IRF must now find a replacement so that the children of the realm are not forgotten. To that end, I am asking for the assistance of any and all children's realm specialists and volunteers to step forward and contact the festival director, Ms. JoMarie Dugan directly (e-mail found on festival website of: We are also in dire need of vendors for our festival - if you or someone you know is a vendor, please see our website for more information. Thank you for your time and assistance in this matter - the pulling together of the rennie community is what makes it so very special. Blessings upon you all and my most humble thanks to each, Emerald Shaunassey/K Assistant Director, IRF
  3. Missouri Renaissance Festival

    Excellent well! I look forward to putting a face with the name! Quick question to all you knowledgeable folks.... Anyone know of a food vendor that has a "self contained" set up and passable looks for period-ish? Unfortunately, due to sudden serious health conditions, the vendor I'd been talking to has had to pull out.
  4. Flintlocks from the J.M. Davis Arms Museum

    J. M. Davis is one of the many surprises here in Oklahoma. It is nice to wander and take in all the arms they have from all periods of history. Glad you got to enjoy you natal day at such a wonderful place!

    Greetings All, Been forever and a day since last I got to jack my jaws with any of ya'll and I miss the entire mangy lot of ya. Taking a "breather" as it were to let my brethern know of my latest adventure as ....... Festival Owner. Ayup, that's right... I've "gone over to the dark side" as it were into Festival Ownership & Management. Don't run frightened for the hills though, I've not been totally corrupted and am still out there performing with the rest of you schmucks! Anyway, the pertinent information on my Festival are as follows: Missouri Renaissance Festival, located in Morse Park, Neosho, Missouri on July 24 & 25, 2010.

I am still looking for vendors (would LOVE to see a few pirate vendors out at the Festival), need a FOOD VENDOR, and volunteer cast and street acts.

  6. Need a Food Vendor for my Ren Festival!

  7. December Club

    Ahhh.. Bo, darlin'... thank ya kindly for remembering me natal day. I swear, I should stop celebrating natal days - the older I get the worse my case of 'swiss cheese brain' gets! Ah well, at least it weren't quite a month afore I answered your well wishes, LOL!
  8. A Resignation and Severing of Ties

    Having been fed up with the politics, the back stabbings, and the double standards that have run rampant since the inception of the Northwest Arkansas Renaissance Faire; I have resigned my position as one of the few remaining founding Board members and pulled my Stage Show from this show until and unless the owner gets rid of the hanger-ons that are dragging this show into the pig troughs! When I'm told that actors and stage shows should not be paid for their hard work, skills, talent, and efforts and that they are not as important as vendors ... that is when it is time to walk away before I throttle someone! Be warned! Stay away from NWARF in Fayettville, Arkansas unless you want to visit a Medieval Flea Market that has no entertainment (Norman Medieval Faire in Norman, Oklahoma is STILL the better Flea Market Faire, with hundreds of vendors and it has entertainers too!)

  11. Scuttling back to the Pub

    A belated but still heartfelt Happy Thanksgiving to one and all. I do apologize for being gone so overly long. Life has been chaotic for the last few months but seems to be settling a bit. Either that or this be just the calm afore the real storm hits! At any rate, I am glad to be back among folks that make sense and do not make my head hurt with their .... issues (or subscriptions in some folks case). I be off to look over all the new things that we've here in the pub ... I've quite a bit of catching up to do on postings, I see and I've an official like posting to make to end some mundane business o' mine. Fair Winds an Followin' Seas... Captain Emerald
  12. Upcoming Surgery...

    Syren luv, Though they come to late for your surgery, which from the sounds of things went very well indeed, my thoughts and prayers are with you for the road ahead. Take it easy and don't overdo anything. Take your pain meds and let hubby wait on you hand and foot (what girl doesn't like to be pampered?). Take one day at a time and measure your advancements by being able to sit up without pain, being able to walk across the house without tiring, etc. Small steps now ensures longer, well being strides later on. If you need anything, have hubby holler at me, I'll do all I can. Here's to a well deserved recovery! Emerald
  13. Heading for Major Surgery

    Rumba dear, My thoughts and prayers are with you now and always. I wish you nothing but a good surgery, fast recovery in post-op and rehab. Just remember when my fellow nurses come in to get you out of bed that first (or the twentieth) ... we are not the enemy! They are making you hurt like the devil to get you up and get everything moving again like it should. Be sure and ask for a dose of the 'good stuff' before they get you up. Move slowly when you do get up, even after you get to go home. It's going to take a while for you to recover from this major 'beating' but, you will recover and feel oh so much better for it. If you need anything hon, holler and I'll do all I can from where I am. Boats - DON'T let her over do on anything! She's a stubborn one and will try her darndest to push herself to fast. With love and healing thoughts, Emerald
  14. Lookie what I did

    Bo my friend, I told you no more drinking and chasing deer on those danged Mo hills! Seriously though, I am glad that you where able to get away at all - that was definately way to close for comfort. Recovery will be slow and a painful b**** but, you will get there. Have you "the word" on what damage was done to your knee? Plans for physical therapy? Take it easy and rest often my friend. If ya need anything just holler - your area isn't that much of a drive from here. Emerald
  15. Ooooo... see that Emerald sparkle!!!

    Lady Barbossa and Rumba, Thank you dears for the well wishes for m'self. They are very sweet an' dear to me. May this holiday season find you both happy, healthy, and surrounded by love an' warmth. As Always, Emerald
