Sure, you can send any image to me as long as you specify what I gotta do with it.

I woke up this morning to about a half inch of the nasty white stuff


I guess old Terra is a bit upside down at the moment. Living in Norway, we are supposed to have fun or no-fun in the snow this time of year, but the temperature outside is +13Celsius this morning. So it will be a grey Christmas this year.

Btw I do like your Argonaths, Thorin.

I would guess Rafael's avatar is a swanship, as viking longboats were square rigged and I think those sail-like protrusions are wings.

Dear Cloveress,

that is not so far besides the point. A viking ship, after all, was named 'drakkar' meaning 'dragonship' by the Vikings.

Oh, well, that's nice to know. Is that why the Vikings had those wierd helmets too?

I traced my family line a while back and it goes to Scotland, around the time the Vikings attacked, then traced to Scandinavia from there, so I'm partially a Viking :orcsmilie: <<<<<< I hereby name this smilie "Eric" :elfbiggrin:

Clover, I read somewhere that they didn't wear the Horned Helmets, if they did, then I'd be glad, gives them a good look........ but we shall have to get Mellon and Raffy in here to settle it; Did Vikings really wear Horned Helmets?

Don't forget about Amaríé and the rest of the Scandinavians that are members of the PT...as for me .I'm not sure if the Vikings used helmets at all..Maybe they used some sort of protection on their heads in battles but helmets with horns ?????????? I don't think so...
