Fort Meigs - War of 1812

Fort Meigs was established next the Maumee River here in Ohio two hundred years ago as part of the defenses against British/Canadian incursions. It wasn't long before those defenses were tested in the first of two sieges. A number of special events are being held this year to commemorate the siege and the lives of those who took part. Re-enactors will be present in large numbers, and there'll be a spectacular night cannonade from the fort and the site of the British siege batteries across the river!

My wife and I are still homeless and getting by with the help of good friends. I can at least use the internet to look for work. But, it's so wearying being unable to stop anywhere, to relax, to put stuff down and know we have to move it again within days.

We have made an offer on a house and there's another we like in case the first falls through. Both places have space for a Man Cave as it's called here. I live in hope. In the meantime, as Churchill said we'll keep buggering on...
