Woohoo! Filming has begun on the new 10-part tv miniseries based on Malory’s Morte dArthur: ‘Camelot’ Rolls into Ireland’s Ardmore Studios | The Irish Film & Television Network. King and Queen have been cast, along with several other major players. It has the potential to be very cheesy, but hopefully will avoid the most obvious glitzy traps of recent movies and shows. Keep your fingers crossed!

- Wordnik Word of the DayDumb-cake
A cake made in silence on St. Mark's Eve, with numerous ceremonies, by maids, to discover their future husbands.
Example usage: The 'dumb cake' originated in Lewis. Girls were each apportioned a small piece of dough, mixed with any but spring water. They kneaded it with their left thumbs, in silence. Before midnight they pricked initials on them with a new pin, and put them by the fire to bake. The girls withdrew to the farther end of the room, still in silence. At midnight each lover was expected to enter and lay his hand on the cake marked with his initials.
