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, we may we share in your glory by imitating you. ZIU/TYR HAIL!!

Advice on how to spend the day
Outcome: First thing this morning there was a meeting with the CEO of Hawker Beechcraft. I don’t remember HOW the meeting was touted to the employees but all were invited…so I went. He painted a pretty nice picture of the Company until he started talking about the (now) THREE modern plants in Mexico and the plans to hire up to 1,000 Mexicans to do the same job we’re doing here; which of course means we’ll be out of our jobs fairly soon. It was almost like he wanted us to show our support for this move, but all he got was well pointed out thoughts on the less than acceptable work that was already coming from there. It seemed we all left there pretty glum. Other than that work went well. It seemed odd to turn down overtime. I promised Audie I would take the weekend off. With the aid of the Union Steward I’ve also started challenging this moving to 2nd shift being forced upon me. I really doubt there is anything he can do but I can’t go down without a fight.
Hmmmm…my relationship with Hawker is bound for sacrifice!
Audie isn’t doing well.
Leftovers for dinner…and that’s ok with me!
I applied for several positions on the Boeing website http://boeing.com/ : now THAT would be a great gift!

PM Prayer: All you gods and goddesses bless and keep your Holy Folk. From the cold shadows of the glaciers to the colder shadows of space, always, we have been your people. Guide and guard your North folk as you did in ages past. Wodan/Odin, give wisdom and craft to wits shaped by ice and fire that our foes be foxed. Donar/Thor, give us strength and the will to use it. Ing Fro/Freyr and Frouwa/Freyja, give full wombs so that bodies will be found for the souls of heroes. Let your Northern Folk grow in number and in power, so that our kind may live, love, survive and thrive, not just today, not for a millennium, but for ever and ever!
