If you've received a message about EvE being a potential "spam blog", so have I . . . and so have a lot of other blogs apparently.
I will be looking into it further, but according to Blogger our group blog is "not locked". My hunch is that someone hacked Blogger and that a lot of these messages are going out to a lot of blogs.
Bottom line . . . don't panic.

May I direct your attention please to:
There you will see part of the French Army at Fort Niagara's 250th commemoration
of the 1759 Siege this past weekend. I am so very proud of my fellows. From
small beginnings over twenty years ago we have a large, competent, companionable
and cohesive force.
1. Part of the Army including our artillery was out in the works outside the
covered way: two lunettes and one ravelin. Others were on guard duty within the
2. You will see me at 14-17 seconds immediately after our musicians. My
near-white coat now has sun-bleached blue cuffs and a blue collar; Rgt. Royal
Roussillon. The officer dressed similarly but with red cuffs and collar to my
left is from Rgt. de la Reine.
3. There is a way to stop the motion picture and if one is clever there is a
button to click to expand all to completely cover your monitor.
4. On this occasion I was second in command of Army units; roughly 50 soldiers.
I say it this way because we were divided into divisions; Army, Marine, Milice
(militia), Artillery, Native Americans and Boats.
5. I had a wonderful time. Stories to follow over the next few days.

It is with a heavy heart that I, Baron Von J, loyal servant to the king must announce the death of our beloved monarch, King Karl Franz III. Our king managed to hold the desperate factions of Unkerlant together for over thirty years, and as he passes from this world without legitimate heir, I fear the kingdom will be torn asunder. Already forces from the leading contenders for the throne mobilize. Whomever can gain the majority of the Electorate votes will find themselves monarch, but at what cost to our tiny kingdom?
