“That’s verra strong-smelling stuff, Sassenach, ” Jaime observed, during one of his brief visits to the taproom. “What is it?”
“Fresh ginger, ” I answered, holding up the remains of the root I was grating. “It’s the thing most of my herbals say is the best for nausea.”
“Oh, aye?” He picked up the bowl, sniffed at the contents, and sneezed explosively, to the vast amusement of the onlookers. I snatched back the bowl before he could spill it.

Season 3 of Outlander will be epic. It will be an adaption of Voyager, the third book in the Diana Gabaldon book series. Voyager is one of my favorite books and I am not ashamed to say that I am on my fourth reread.

She was able to integrate the natural beauty of the landscape and culture into each design. It was breathtaking to say the least!
We woke up like every other day…but this was going to be a day never to be forgotten.
8:46am EDT, an airplane crashed into the North Tower of The World Trade Center. Then, within 15 minutes a second plane crashed into the South Tower. Half an hour later, a third airplane crashed into the Pentagon. Another 30 minutes later, a fourth plane was deliberately crashed in a Pennsylvania field to avoid crashing into yet another building.

On Saturday, August 27th, Sass3 headed north to FIDM, Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising, to see the Outlander Costumes. Back in July, initially we viewed the huge costume exhibit at the Paley Media Center in Beverly Hills; however, some of the pieces were not available. For this road trip to FIDM, we were particularly interested in seeing Claire Fraser’s “Dior” dress. Continue reading Emmy Nominated Outlander Costumes at FIDM→
