My dear Jocetta!

The lovely, and really un"boar-ring" barony of Couer d'Ennui is still
alive and well in the Kingdom of Calontir!  It was not my first SCA
residence, but was my first SCA HOME!  I am making the long trip to
Lillies War for the specific purpose of visiting the friendly people and
particularly the Baron and Baroness, Yoshi and Dammienne.  I will see what
I can find out about the origins of the name...although, if you've ever
lived in the center of Iowa....

Have a good Summer!
