Lady of the Lake

Reminds one of the Swedish farmer who discovered a Viking hoard and summoned the archaeologists. They drove up to the farmgate, paused, then drove up to the farmhouse and promptly asked said farmer who put the hoop on the gate.

Bewildered by the question he replied he did, having found a brass hoop near his shed about five years before - it seemed a good use for it.

He was then informed it was sold gold torque and he was to detach it immediately.

I love the "Queen to be" idea.
Even if she is just a "Swedish-American "
In Sweden she should be able to get good grades and a scholarship out of it.
After all, it isn't her fault she was born in the USA.

True.
But I thought they got the sequence wrong.
Living over there I would think she would referred to as an "American-Swede."
Over here she would be "Swedish-American."

The Guardian is probably still upset about the Revolution.
Something is wrong here. War, disease, death, destruction, hunger, filth, poverty, torture, crime, corruption, and the Ice Capades. Something is definitely wrong. This is not good work. If this is the best God can do, I am not impressed.

George MacDonald Fraser has a good bit on the American war of independence in his "Flash for Freedom" Flashman reminisces that had the US not rebelled there would have been less killing, the slaves would have been freed much earlier, without a civil war and full independence would have been granted peacefully as with Australia and Canada.

Wild speculation of course and Ireland was hardly granted independence peacefully, but an interesting what if.

Anyway on the actual topic it is interesting how often ancient swords are associated with lakes. Again it is myth but there is the old story that Excalaibur means from (ex) the Calai burn (river or stream). And one wonders if this weapon is based on a spatha the roman cavalry sword
