Santa Fe Farmers Market

Well Met: Renaissance Faire and Hippies

Hand Pies Queen
Well Met is going to be released Monday. The academic look at Renaissance fairs and the "Counter Culture." I can't wait to read about what other people feel about warp bubble we were living.
The "Renaissance Pleasure Faire" was sometimes said with great mocking exaggeration in Berkeley among we the paid theatrical so-call talent who worked "The Faire."
If the 'Ren Fair' and my hippie friends were well met then there surely was some good old Shakespearean "ill met by moonlight" going on.  Living on the Faire site in Novato I say I saw lots Living History Center, Theme events, and Renaissance pleasure moonlight meeting both ill met and really well met.
The Hand Pi booth was a food booth...licences, permits, inspections and unspoken formula for kick-backs.
The Pi Hand, the name I only recently gave the group of early freaks  geeks that successfully pulled off the whole Hand Pies thing.

Renaissance "Pleasure" Faire, Berkeley, and Hand Pies

The Renaissance Faire  and Olaf's house in Berkeley were the home and birthplace of the Hand Pi(es).  The original sign with the Hand Pi logo and menu says "Hand Pies."  A "hand pie" has come to mean a small pie possibly folded or shaped. A "hand pie sandwich" is a grilled sealed shape sandwich with a toasted pattern or toasted grilled image on it.
The "Faire" had three types of 'hand pie' booths, maybe four. One was a pirogi, a baked or fried bread-dough filled 'hand pie.' Two concessions were 'hand pie sandwich' vendors. One was a "Cheeze Wiz" or classic grilled cheese, sliced tomato and fresh basil sandwich cooked in a pressed metal mold. The Brits call these round sealed sandwiches "toasties." Then there was our Hand Pi branded 'hand pies' that were made in a custom mold similar to a Toas Tite or jaffle camping grill ... all molds falling in a larger category of 'pie irons.' The fourth booth sold 'aebleskivers' or an apple filled pancake ball made with a batter on the pie iron's cousin the 'waffle iron.' My favorite waffle iron is the Korean street food 'Bung-A-Pang' fish shaped waffle maker.

Pi Day, Hand Pie, Rasberry Pi, hand pi day = spam pie

If you search images you use words. Obviously the ability to manipulate what images appear  with which words is available to even dopes like myself. The "absolutely wrong" tagging of photos on Google image search so that nothing but photos of Rommey popped up was a perfect example of geek Democrats manipulating the process. Getting Hand Pi images and content to be associate with key words is the prime directive. What are the words or phases that are beginning to attach to Hand Pi? Helping Hand; Pi Day; Hand Pies; pi; Einstine; Pi Day 2015; 3.1415 and hand pi day (3/14/15).

"Einstine_hand_pi_day" is the label I put on the image on the left.  It will take awhile but that image will show up on searches for: "Pi Day" - "Hand Pi" - "Einstine.

The real trick is to find or create or combine associated values to the Jungian image.
