    Don't remember, but my son asked for a beer this afternoon, and I told him it was a new kind of beer and he had to shake it to settle the contents AND HE STARTED TO SHAKE IT! Didn't spill too much though. He got an over-sizes mug.

    Can an English knife be pictured on a Viking book?

    LOL! :D I was given a beer the other week, from that same brewery actually, which you were instructed to gently invert 3 times before opening :thumbsup:

    Most definitely Vince, words of Old Norse are still in daily use in Yorkshire, in our language, dialect, and place names, and Swedish iron was always the basis for Sheffield steel :thumbsup: I think my favourite of the sagas is Njal's Saga :)

    Thank you very much Dwight :) I love that pic :) Hope you have a great week :thumbsup:

    I don't see why not. The English had quite a bit of trouble with them way back when. Yorkshire was run by Vikings in the days of the Danelaw.

    Have fun, Dave.
    Oh ya, I had a question for you...
    My son and I were sitting around the fire pit last evening when some geese flew over.
    My son wants to know why they are called Canadian Geese when they spend half their time in the US? :D

    The silly answer is, they are doing what other Canadians do annually go South for the winter especially to Florida and Arizona. :p

    The correct answer is:
    So it’s true that at one point in time the Branta canadensis was called a Canada Goose, because it was often seen flying towards Canada and living there. You could now just as easily call it a North American Goose since it is found all over North America and lives just about anywhere. It has adapted to live all across the US and into Mexico too.
    So over the years, the name has changed to be Canadian Goose in English. ;)

    To sum it up, the Canada Goose is actually an American Goose that vacations in Canada for the summer :p

    Mine too Wayne, I was hoping to see some in Skipton Castle Woods on Saturday, but the entire wood is overrun with wild garlic :rolleyes: Nice pic :thumbsup:

    :) :thumbsup:

    Good luck Dave :) :thumbsup:

    My two appointments were pretty straight-forward, attending the second appointment was a hike though. There's a hospital a quarter of a mile from me with a good physiotherapy department, where I've been before. Instead, I had to travel some distance, and I think the sign on the blood pressure monitor says a lot about the place! :eek: :rolleyes:

    We get Canada Geese here too! :D :thumbsup:

    Wow! :) :thumbsup:

    Hi folks,

    Hope everyone is having a good day. Medical appointments aside, I can't say mine has been the best. Getting ready to go out, I realised I didn't have my reading glasses, and that I had left them on the train on Saturday o_O Before I went to the train station to find out that they hadn't been handed in, I had to revisit a 'locksmith'. I had got a spare set of keys cut last week, and the guy had charged me three times what I paid previously. When I got home, two of the keys (all very standard Yale-type keys) wouldn't even fit in the locks. I went back, and he fiddled around with them, but it was pretty obvious, from his conversation with his co-worker, that he really didn't know what he was doing. The keys still didn't work, so I had to go back again today, and this time I asked for a refund. I got it, but it was clear that I had indeed been overcharged. The idiot had the cheek to tell me, "Well, at least I tried." Like I'd asked him to head a football, rather than do a job he pretended to be qualified for! o_O :rolleyes: To cap that, I forgot to pocket my AC when going out! :eek: At least I have it now :thumbsup:

    Good Monday morning to you Guardians. Hope your start to the week is going well. My Damascus Lambsfoot is still listed as in LA at the USPS Regional facility.:( Oh well, I have Rosie, she doesn't mind being the center of attention.

    Thanks Jack, they did finally win 4-0, have a deep hole to dig out of
    Sure, looks good anywhere!
    Another great photo of those great knives, Dwight.
    Still drops below freezing here, they wouldn't last long, but are beautiful. Nice photo!
    Great way to start your morning, John.
    You too, Ron and may it continue all week.
