New Piquet and Field of Battle Facebook Page

I've finally gone and done it - there is now a Piquet/Field of Battle Facebook page.  You can find it at .       The page has only been up for a week or so.   To date, the content is somewhat limited, but I expect that to change as more members join up and we get into a rhythm of adding material.

So come on over and join us on the Piquet/Field of Battle Facebook page!

What's next?   Videos?  Podcast?   Both?  Neither?   Who knows?  Certainly not me.....

I'm Back!!!!

I see that the last post was in October.   Hmmmm.    A lot has happened since then.  Let's see:

1)  The Broncos didn't win the Super Bowl.  
2)  The Broncos didn't make the playoffs.
3)  The Broncos finished with the 5th worst record in the NFL.
4)  The Broncos trotted out a trio of quite possibly the worst accumulation of QB's in the history of the league.
5)  Played a few games that didn't make it onto the blog - ACW, Napoleonics, FPW, APW, Punic War.   I'll post a few random photos after the text of this blog post.  I honestly have no recollection of who won, who lost.   All I remember was that the games were fun!
6)  Started the final stage of our house renovation - finishing the floor for the basement.  It took us months to finally decide what type of floor we wanted, as well as the color/style.  We finally settled on Cortec HD, a luxury vinyl plank product.  Waterproof, has some insulation value, and it is beautiful.  We finished the flooring install last weekend, and this weekend we finished all the trim work.   IT IS DONE!   A 4 year project, renovating our home from top to bottom.  New bathrooms.  New kitchen.  Relocated windows.  Hardwood throughout the house.  New spindles and handrails.  New lights.     It is hard for me to believe that it is actually complete.  No more planning and establishing project plans for timing, arrival of material, etc.   DONE.

On to other news - today I established a Facebook page for Piquet/Field of Battle, rather imaginatively titled Piquet and Face of Battle.   If you're interested, look it up on Facebook and join.  We're glad to have you!

On to some photos of games held between October and February:
