I vote Melgus in charge of candle making. (I’m not nominating you for in charge of me though) — 1974

Yeah, yeah. Har, har, har… Malgus, King of the Candles… :)

You know, back in the original Dark Ages, only the very wealthy could afford candles – the genuine article – because they were so time consuming and labor intensive to make. Everyone else had to make do with betty lamps filled with rancid, rendered pig fat. Betcha that smelled good. Some snackbar type biffs us with an EMP and folks like me will become right popular….

1974: “Hey Malgus! I heard you make candles. I’ll take 3 dozen.”

Malgus: “Sure thing! That’ll be 6 gold eagles, 5lbs of salt, 2lbs of sugar, a dozen canning jars with lids and seals and a written promise for 10% of next year’s harvest…”
