    Re: Books for begginers

    Absolutely and hearing different people tell the same tale can be as informative about the storyteller as it is about the story. I'm not saying oral versions of the stories are more accurate...

    Re: Nuclear power. Yay or nay?

    Yay-ish.

    They're a necessary evil. If we'd wanted to do without nuclear power we should have been making changes to our energy infrastructure and usage patterns about thirty years ago. We couldn't...

    Re: The Problem of Evil

    In relation to the question of why do my gods and goddesses (who I consider mostly good) 'allow' this, the answer is because they are neither omniscient nor omnipotent. They don't 'allow' it because...

    Re: Books for begginers

    You have some very good points and I think they point to a problem I've long pondered in Heathenry (and maybe the other historically based Paganisms too?) that the 'lore' and academic texts are...

    Re: Books for begginers

    I have to admit to being sceptical of any 101 book written for heathens as I find them long on woo and short on fact but, like I said, I'm recon influenced though not actually recon, so I would...

    Re: Books for begginers

    I agree - Thorbjorn's recommendation of Kevin Crossley Holland's 'The Norse Myths' is a good place to start, but I think it's a good idea to read the lore properly at some point.

    Personally I'm...

    Re: What is a reasonable drinking age?

    That was probably small beer though corby, which bears little relation to beer these days. It'd have been very low alcohol - basically it was brewed just strong enough to be safer to drink than water...

    Re: How the swear like a Brit

    I've not noticed it. We definitely 'put the kettle on'. But as I said I'm not native and most of my friends aren't native so I only really meet the natives at work and out and about :P

    Re: How the swear like a Brit

    Ta duck. Ta= thanks and duck is a friendly term of address in Derbyshire although as merely a Derbyshire resident, rather than a native I don't use it (that sounding like a numpty thing). It's quite...

    Re: How the swear like a Brit

    Us Brits do a similar thing with bad things. 'Had a bit of a rotten day,' could mean my favourite cake recipe sunk and I was really looking forward to it; it could mean I lost three members of my...

    Re: How the swear like a Brit

    I know crook means ill so I'm going to guess that 'wog' is flu or similar. Which would make it 'Ive got the flu, I've been sick as a dog for three days.'

    Try 'Yoam yampy yo am, ait?' Black country...

    Re: The Gods don't care about us individually?

    At the moment I feel massively unqualified to speak to the wider historical and theological questions so I'll just add in a comment about my own experience. I do feel occasional contact (though it's...

    Um. As a Brit to Americans she rather likes. Don't do it, you just sound like bloody numptys in my experience. Probably a lot like when I say 'dude' (And I do,...

    Don't assume everyone in a knitting or sewing forum is a little old lady. I participate in a massive one where creative swearing is practically a sport and the discussion can get pretty crude (and...

    You have a good point (the whole post, I only chose the last bit so as to avoid a long quote). I do think it's natural to have active periods and less active periods and that getting on with your...

    Re: Incorporating my faith into every day life.

    I'm also feeling a bit 'lapsed' too as my kindred slowed dramatically for reasons of life getting in the way for the most active members, and then I made it worse by moving away. In the past I've...

    Rosemary good for the memory

    I spotted this article on the BBC site -http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-33519453. It seems rosemary really is good for the memory. They seem to have been testing for the sort of memory you use...

    If you go looking for community in the places that it would have been found a thousand, or even just fifty, years ago you will find it lacking, or at best a bit thin. But we're still part of...
