Miss Laval is Off for the Holiday!

Journal of Eladrienne Laval, Rocket Lab Ass't

I am packing up my carriage now, as I am off to the Lowcountry for the holidays and would like to wish all of you a very very happy holiday season!

I suppose the Professor will be alright, as he is sometimes is a bit absent-minded. I suppose that is not good when combining fuel mixtures and formulas.

Oh! Professor! Speaking of which, I did organize the most recent notes and be sure to read the ones from the fuel experiments! You wanted me to remind you of this due to the last time the lab, well, exploded.

My hair was singed for days and my eyebrows are just beginning to grow back...

Cape Messmer Notes - from the Director's Desk

Consulting with my lab assistant Miss Eladrienne Laval.

Miss Laval and I discuss various exhibits and experiments at Cape Messmer in Caledon Morgaine. Miss Laval is seen here working on one of the moonships onsite.

A photograph taken during a time-travel jump to Spaceports Alpha and Bravo. Very inspiring indeed!

Verne Display at Cape Messmer

Journal of Eladrienne Laval, Rocket Lab Ass't
I fear the Professor is being remiss in his posting duties, so I shall have to tell you about the progress of Cape Messmer. Scientists I tell you! Must I do everything around this place? Oh, where are those notes? Oh my...I probably shouldn't touch that gadget over there...

Professor Messmer believes the Cape Messmer Aethernautical Labs to be a vision of what efforts and interests Victorians had in aether travel in the 19th c., whether fictional or real. We enjoy talking to the inventors who stop by to demonstrate or tell us about their latest contraptions. It is a work in progress, so there will be more to come! If you visit now, you will find a lovely telescope, an illustration based upon Edward Everett Hale's story The Brick Moon, a tiny aether-ship by Mr. Denver Hax, and my Jules Verne "From the Earth to the Moon" display--complete with a replica of the space-capsule! Soon you will be able to use it to visit the moon! The Professor is very proud of his Tartan 2 aether-rocket, which he could probably explain better than I could. Do come visit and have a look around!

HG Wells' First Men on the Moon

Journal of Eladrienne Laval, Rocket Lab Ass'tDr Joseph Cavor

I am certain that I should be creating new items for the Labs or compiling the Professor's still-uncompiled and rather disorganized notes, but I came upon a rather amusing thing while doing research on the aethernet. It is a quite funny summary, with image stills, from a moving picture entitled "HG Wells' First Men on the Moon."

Cavorite and aether-spheres and Selenites, oh my!

Cape Messmer Aether Labs Now Official!

Journal of Eladrienne Laval, Rocket Lab Ass't
Here is an image of the Professor looking, well, professorial, and me barely restraining my glee. The Guvnah has declared Caledon Morgaine officially open and the bluffs are now officially Cape Messmer!

He laughed as I lifted up my skirt hems a bit and literally ran around the land like a madwoman for a moment. We both "Hoooo'd" as we surveyed the site to determine where things should be located. So much to do and create! Do contact one of us if you have questions about the Caledon Aethernautical Society and feel free to join! Stop by the Aerodrome or Cape Messmer anytime! Cape Messmer promises to be an interesting addition to Caledon and SL and the Professor and I look forward to meeting like-minded inventors, builders, scripters and aether-enthusiasts!!

The Amazing Region of Caledon Morgaine

I was discussing plans for the Aethernautical Society Launch Facility with my charming lab assistant Miss Laval, when the Guvnah's Terraforming Crew arrived to begin another phase of work on the new Morgaine sim. Huzzah to Guvnah Shang & Associates!

First Day on the Job at the Labs

Journal of Eladrienne Laval, Rocket Lab Ass't
Today was my first true day on the job at the Messmer Labs in Penzance, where I will be assisting Prof. Messmer with various projects related to the Caledon Aethernautical Society. Soon the Labs shall be moving to a larger location in Morgaine and form part of the Aerodrome complex. To celebrate, he set out some caramel crunch candy that gave us both a sugar rush. First note to self: No more caramel crunch is allowed in the lab, especially while handling combustible materials.

The professor would like me to help him arrange his notes. Upon asking him where said notes were located, he remarked, "Perhaps my jacket from yesterday?" When I reminded him about the rest of his notes, he looked a bit sheepish and down at his shoes. Oh my...I do believe I have my work cut out for me here.

A new appearance for The Professor

I have been most remiss in updates to my electric journaling device and do apologize to my 1 or 2 readers.

I thought I might post again using this recent photograph of several weeks ago.

It was taken by my personal typist and assistant - Mr. JB Pennypacker - who also manages my financial holdings and seems to know exactly when I need more funds deposited into my accounts in Caledon. Remarkable chap!

Twitter added to my mostly unused blog

Now that I am more involved in the Caledon community, I hope to update my aethernet journal more often.
