Its about time us ladies had our own little "club", where one can discuss the trials and tribulations of being a female steampunk in the fin de siecle. Lipstick, lace, fascinators and where exactly one is supposed to hang a crossbow where wearing nothing but a corset and bloomers.

The jovial name of the club automatically allows membership to those who may not be of a biologically female nature, of course Wink

if you Lady's want to segregate yourself from us men folk, feel free, but don't come running to us when you need a jar opening or a mouse disposing off.

ok how about this
Endometrial ablation is a surgical procedure that is offered to women who suffer from very heavy bleeding. Often this bleeding can be prolonged and lead to anaemia and be such a hindrance that it begins to interfere with every day life.



How Does The Procedure Work?
An endometrial ablation works by destroying the lining of the womb which in turn prevents bleeding.


The procedure can be carried out in a number of ways: it may require the use of a diathermy electrode which passes an electrical current to the tissue; the surgeon might prefer to use a loop shaped electrode that scrapes the lining away whilst passing the electrical current; a laser may be used; microwave technology can be employed in which microwaves are passed through the tissue to a certain depth or fluid can be used to fill the uterine cavity which is then heated to a certain temperature that seals the blood vessels that supply the endometrium (the lining of the womb). The type of technique can vary upon hospital, the surgeons preference, training issues or available equipment.


They all work in a similar way and can all be effective. It is not recommended for use in the presence of fibroid growths, which may require a separate treatment and possible removal; nor is it recommended for those who are planning to become pregnant in the future.

Well, being a mesmerist as a day job, a bartender as a night job and a jewelry restorer, my purse currently contains:

Lip balm, needle nose pliers, a vial of lodestone, several pens, a lighter, a pendulum, smelling salts, two different bottle openers, my money purse, medical supplies, keys, phone, ipod, a pair of black silk gloves, my goggles case (I always wear them), a lace hankie, my bar rag and a copy of Jules Verne's Journey to the Centre of the Earth. Usually I have small random bits I found as well, yesterday I found a gold and enamel pair of cherries charm on the pavement....

I find as I am getting older I have fewer trousers in my wardrobe, and the length of my skirts are getting longer,  and I was just wondering Sisters dear if this was a normal occurance or not?  whilst I dwell on this I shall draw fresh water and make a fresh brew, Slice of Battenberg anyone?

I am so sorry to bother you again Dear Ladies but  I have been, for a while thinking of writing a short steampunk romance. Would you please give me your honest thoughts on wether it is worth me continuing further it has no working title at he moment

As she lay on the day bed the sun caressed her , it was warm and sensual  the feel of its touch upon her skin awakened feelings that had long been buried, buried so long that she had thought they no longer existed, Its funny how new surroundings can bring back to life things from the past she mused she remembered there first meeting so business like, correct and cold and laughed to her self funny how first impressions can be so wrong she thought as she remembered the first time they made love it happened so fast one minuet they were drinking tea and the next  well  what did it matter now  ,He left me with empty promises and went of on a fantastic adventure in his airship.
  It didn't take long for her family to realise she was with child a child out of wed lock the discrace of it all, His family paid her of well an now on this tiny Caribbean island that they dumped her on she plotted her revenge

Hello dear Ladies, Countessa Lenora here, so glad to see the women have their own delicious club to relax the stays and perhaps sip a small amount of absinthe?  I would love to join you if I may.

Oh yay, tea! I have some home-dried loose leaf mint about somewhere...
And I have brought flowers. Fresh wild roses, pink and white fruit blossoms, and red currant from our garden. The early plants are braving the chill of spring!

Despite the flowers I am feeling unfeminine at the moment- I carry no purse- but my billfold is stamped leather and doubles as a rolled newspaper for misbehaving puppies/boys.


I also have unmentionable stories to terrify any wandering male, both the usual variety and a few more, um, unusual ones.

Good evening ladies, I am gagging for a cup of earl grey and if anyone has any ratafia biscuits I would be eternally grateful.

I am sure that many of you are fans of the corset but may I take this opportunity to read you a quotation from one of my many pamphlets, written by no less an authority than Dr Parkes

    "The clothes should be loose, so as not to impede muscular movement, and in the case of young girls nothing should be done to support the spine by stays or other contrivances. To make a girl tightly brace herself with stays is a great mistake. Her ribs should have the fullest play, and her clothes should be as loose as those of a boy, and for the same reason, viz., that every muscle may have unrestricted play, and that the lungs may expand without impediment. For both sexes girdles and belts, which especially bind the lower ribs, should be avoided"
