Ziu/Tyr, you chained the Fenris Wolf that threatened the worlds. We can’t do that, but we can do other things, some ordinary, others heroic. Remind us of your bravery and your sacrifice. Give us the courage and strength we need to fetter out own Fenris. Keep us mindful of our duties, and help us keep our fears bound as tightly as you bound old Slaver Mouth. Thus doing, may we share in your glory by imitating you. We honor the Zio/Tyr that
resides in us. ZIO/TYR HAIL!!

Outcome: That’s okay, I got it.
Audie still house-sitting
To brother’s to use his table saw to cut Rune staves. Methinks instinctively, he let me do this project myself. Usually, I may go over with a project but he takes the reigns and does it for me. This time, he set up the saw but the rest of the project was all mine.
Picked up Audie for lunch.
McDs for lunch.
Audie came home for a bit to make phone calls and what-not. Honestly, it was good having her here.
I had an interesting Facebook email conversation with my friend in Kiel Germany. I shared this conversation with the Facebook RHK page as we are dealing with the Armanen Runes, and the Armanen Runes are specifically German via Guido von List.
The conversation was as follows:
Perhaps you can help me with something. With the Runes, they are separated into three groups of eight Runes. In the Scandinavian tongue these sets of eight Runes are called Aetts. I am looking to divide a set of Runes into groups of six. Is there a German word for "a group of six"?
hey brother, not 'one' word, but you could say 'ein halbes Dutzend' which would mean 'half a dozen'.
'Sechsergruppe' (or '6er-Gruppe') would be the direct translation from 'a group
of six' Hope that I could help.
Would "Halbdutzend" be a word?
hmm... Halbdutzend.. on a knife edge from okay and not really okay ... but it sounds good somehow.. not really a usual German word though
HAHAHAHAHA...I just might have fun with that one, just as long as you can say in SOME FORM that it "sounds good...".
hehehehe, yeah, however.. use it. German people would know what it's supposed to mean”
So, I may use the word "Halbdutzend" in reference to a set of six Runes in the Armanen row; similar to Aett being eight of the Futhark Runes.
1st Halbdutzend, Ygg’s Rot of Creation
2nd Halbdutzend, Ygg’s Root of Destruction
3rd Halbdutzend , Ygg’s Root of Re-Creation
Methinks it works. I’m gonna use it!
On the news there was something again about all the snow in Cordova, Alaska; where I was stationed for 18 months with the Coast Guard. They gave a web address of Cordovabuzz.com. I signed up for website updates. It’s really interesting when I see things that I remember from so long ago.
Meeka for an early evening walk. She’s not enthusiastic about her walks anymore. I don’t know if it’s age, her meds, or what. I’m constantly having to wait for her to catch up. I had to leave her in the backyard so I could finish the last couple of blocks briskly. I may have to have a word with my Vet.
Made a couple of phone calls to keep check on everybody.
My Heathen blood has just been on fire today! There’s a song by a group called Hammerfall; the song is called Blood Bound. I put that song on “repeat” as I did my running around today. Every time I hear that song I get so pumped. I will never deny my Mennonite heritage; the evangelical parts not so much. I am considered 5th generation Mennonite though I don’t practice it. The Mennonites date back to about 1500. Before that they may have been Lutheran. Before that, who knows? I am fully convinced they were Heathenistic farmers of Northern Germany. All that to say, my ancestry RAGES through me at a time when I need a pick-me-up. I am reminded of Frigga’s visit. I’m reminded of Odin’s visit. I’m reminded of the ancestor I’ve seen and will be the one who leads me to the Halls of My Ancestors! My Germanic ancestry
isn’t dead at all; it lives in the blood that has been passed down generation after generation after generation and flows in me today. Though Heimdall has turned his back on me today, I THANK HIM FOR THE GENETIC CONNECTION HE HAS
PROVIDED between humans and the gods. HAIL! HAIL!! HAIL!!!
Lots of primary action today. The Republicans had
their first official primary in New Hampshire. Actually, I don’t give a shit.
I mean, I like politics and all, I just don’t care how much they slug it out.
I’m a Socialist Democrat. I support NOTHING the Republicans represent.
Besides, I don’t think any of them stand a chance against President Obama. Time
PM Prayer: Heimdall:
HEAR ME HEIMO/HEIMDALL, you’re the genetic link between the gods and humankind. Your keen eyes and sharp ears guard the world of the gods. As you stand so alert for the approach of giants, remind us that we must also watch for our own encroaching evil. Let weakness, cowardice, lies and dishonor be barred from the Rainbow Bridge leading to our heart’s abode. Be a model for vigilance, that we may rise to the best that is in us, and someday join the Noble Gods in their shining home. We honor the Heimdall that resides in us. HAIL HEIMO/HEIMDALL!!
PM Rune: none
