Information curtsey of PG Notice Board

"Jacquetta, daughter of the Count of Luxembourg and kinswoman to half the royalty of Europe, was married to the great Englishman John, Duke of Bedford, uncle to Henry VI. Widowed at the age of nineteen she took the extraordinary risk of marrying a gentleman of her house-hold for love, and then carved out a life for herself as Queen Margaret of Anjou's close friend and a Lancaster supporter - until the day that her daughter Elizabeth Woodville fell in love and married the rival king Edward IV. Of all the little-known but important women of the period, her dramatic story is the most neglected. With her links to Melusina, and to the founder of the house of Luxembourg, together with her reputation for making magic, she is the most haunting of heroines".

I have already signed up my mom and I to attend the Madison, CT event. I have NO Idea why she is coming to a tiny town in tiny CT, compared to all her other stops, but who am I to complain!

Now lets just hope that my travel for my job doesn't actually end up being over that weekend like it is looking like it will be :(

Dolleygurl, good job I love dragging family to events. I hope she has a lot of fun. Lame about work, figures that always happens right when you want to do something. Maybe it will change...my fingers are crossed for you. I swear she will never come to Oregon.
