Hi Linda, we came across this link: https://www.colleges-and-universities.education/colleges-in-florida/broward-college.htm and it had some incorrect info about a past alumni. It mentioned that Charles Manson attended school here, but in fact he did not take a class here. I was hoping you could update this information because its affecting our search results on google and misleading potential students. Thanks so much and appreciate your help!

I'll answer that one. Fact is, that "Owl" being unclean comes from the lore of the surrounding areas, such as Iran, or rather what will be Iran. Believed to be carrion eaters, they were associated by every culture of the Middle East with  the dead, desolation and with those things best not spoken of which were  in burrows and caves.

So it is from common culture that the owl is an ominous, dirge(mourning) symbol. 

Hebrew mythology also associates the owl (the small burrow owls) with Lilith, and in several places the Hebrew world Lilith is altered and changed to the English word "owl"  So.. please do not lecture on adding or subtracting from the word, since it is already well stepped on and twisted before we ever get to see it.

Hi Linda, in one of websites it says that Queen Elizabeth I retreated to Windsor Caslte in order to evade the Black Plague. You also mentioned that would have anyone arriving from London hanged.I was just wondering where you got that information from, so that I may cite it in my research paper. Thank you

Sorry - couldn't figure out how to message you - there is a typo in your timeline of wars (datesandevents.org - Timeline of War) "Timeline of Wars - AD 1 - 1199" should read 1000-1199 AD." Thanks!

About the catapults page of lordsandladies, could you add pictures of the most common variants of each catapult? I've been looking for a long time, and I don't know what springald you're talking about, or what the vertical springboard is. Are you talking about the one with the box frame and inward-facing arms, or the other one with the flexible plank that gets drawn back, then released to hit the darts? Therefore, it would be awesome if you could add pictures. Other than that, it's a great informational page.
