I recently, (yesterday) launched a new blog for one of my favorite places, The Genesee Country Village & Museum. The museum is one of the largest living history museums in the country and a real gem of a place. It houses 68 buildings (that's huge!) and is full of costumed interpreters and artisans.
Yes!!! Could you die!!!
The blog will showcase the 19th century village. It will include events and activities that you can see when you visit as well as an examination of 19th century life. The focus is on education as well as publicity.
This week I'm talking about handmade beer and other new things for this season as well as what people would be eating in the 19th century at this time of year. Check out the sausage wrapped eggs I made over the weekend. (Yup, you read that right!)
2 weeks ago I was invited to attend some staff training and a luncheon there. When I pulled up I parked behind a car whose bumper sticker read "Well Behaved Women Seldom Make History." I knew I was in the right place. (Ok, I already knew I was in the right place but you know what I mean!)
Later, while attending a session about 19th century etiquette (Yes, I did!) I could NOT stop coughing. My pioneer guide, Deanna ,(ironic because in real life one of my best friends is named Deanna, this Deanna is my pioneer best friend) leaned over and asked if I would like a 19th Century cough elixir that she had made.
It was IN HER BAG!!!.....
I stopped myself before yelling "Hell Yeah!"
She was as excited to give me some as I was to take it. (Yes, of COURSE I took some!) When we practiced bowing and curtsying I swear I thought, "Now these are MY peeps!" (Ok, in real life I don't use the word peeps, I promise.) I also don't curtsy....much.
I think I mentioned a few posts ago that I'm really a geek. I am....
