Howard Presents: The ABCs of Steampunk


Mother is taking a week’s vacation starting — well, now, apparently.  I explained that bloggers are supposed to post at least 5 times a week, but she went off muttering.  So it’s up to me to save the day.  Please enjoy a “vintage” (from April) blog post.  I’ll throw in a Victorian picture or two.
