A great conversation

I had a delightful and informative e-mail discussion with smuzikant, mia_mcdavid, and S from colgaffneyis over lunch hour today and trailing off into the afternoon. We talked about how 17th century Scottish Highlanders would have reacted when sent into war on the European continent, and about cost, skill, and labor in making clothes in the era. This may seem utterly trivial, but we are all trying to understand how people deal with the world around them, especially when the world is very different from what we take for granted in the early 21st century.
