I can’t beat Miss Piggy in a fight. She’s very strong and knows karate.

DO YOU EVER JUST GET REALLY EXCITED ABOUT HISTORY AND MUSEUMS AND SHIT

This warm, spicy recipe is inspired by the Mereth Aderthad, the Feast of Reuniting. I like to think of this as a bit like the Viking Thing tradition - where everyone would gather for a midsummer festival, dance and market. So this Scandinavian punch, popular around Christmas time, seems a good fit. It’s good enough to remember, and will inspire “counsels in good will, and oaths to be sworn of league and friendship.”
GLOGG - DRINK OF THE FEAST OF REUNITING (serves eight-ish)
I Bottle red wine
1 large glass sweet wine (Vermouth from your oath cocktails would be good here, or muscatel or marsala is lovely!)
0.5 cup raisins
10 cardamon pods
1 cinammon stick
Peel from an orange
1 cup sugar (or more to taste)
Slivered Almonds
Gently warm all ingredients except the almonds. Do not let the mixture boil (you’ll loose the precious booze) but just leave on a gentle heat for the flavours to mingle, stirring occassionally, for five minutes. When ready to serve, pour into your fanciest friendship goblets, sprinke the almonds on top, and drink with a heart high and full of hope.

South Korean pianist Yeaji Kim has been completely blind since the age of 13 and learned to play piano using Braille scores, meaning that each page of music was covered with three-dimensional bumps that made it possible for her to read printed music.

But Braille has its limits; there are some important musical elements that Braille can’t transmit, like timing, piano pedal markings and other performance notations.

So Yeaji Kim came up with the concept of a complete 3D score for blind students, as part of her doctoral dissertation at the US American University of Wisconsin. Her 3D pen makes ordinary sheet music 3D by slightly elevating the staff and the notation printed on it. She hopes this will mean blind musicians will have access to all sheet music, instead of being limited to what is specially produced in Braille.
