The first month of 21013 just seemed to fly by! We hope it has gone well for you. Now we begin February, which gets its name from Latin term februum, which means purification, via the purification ritual Februa performed at this time of year. The Romans considered February an ill-fortuned month which is why it is shorter than the others. We return to the theme 0f curses, cursed items, ill-fortune and, perhaps, defense against such terrible things here in February.
As usual, suggestions, comments and ideas are welcome.
