Boudica was a queen of the British Celtic Iceni tribe who led an uprising against the occupying forces of the Roman Empire in AD 60 or 61, and died shortly after its failure, having supposedly poisoned herself. (Wikipedia)
Riding the pipe is downright a dangerous sport and it takes quite a thrill seeker to wish to surf such waves. Take red haired surfer Jamie O’Brien from Hawaii and you have the perfect example. Daredevil and immune from the apparent hazards of this sport including sunburn, O’Brien is a top contender. Recently at the Red Bull surf event in his home island, Jamie scored a perfect 10 and lost to another surfer. My first thought was this could only happen to a redhead.
We have been taught that the Chinese civilization developed without any outside influence. When Chinese archaeologists discovered mummies in their desert province of Xinjiang, they were startled to find that these people were of Celtic origin. The mummies had red hair and clothing made in Europe. These people brought with them horses, the wheel and woven cloth. Evidence suggests that these ‘caucasians’ resided in China for over 3000 years. This amazing find would have been kept secret to the outside world if not for the chance discovery of an American professor Victor Mair in the 1980’s.
These mummies were part of the ‘Secrets of the Silk Road’ exhibit which toured the US in 3 cities in 2010-11. However, the exhibit was cancelled suddenly without warning by the Chinese government because of their perceived cultural sensitivity.
Personally, I think it would be appropriate for the Chinese government to return these mummies to a western historical center, such as the British Museum, since the mummies are not Chinese. They should be displayed and their history shared, not hidden away in China.

Viking Aftershave – Thor’s Hammer Classic Bay Rum Spice
Yes everyone loves a good beer. Who doesn’t? After swilling a couple brews, your inhibitions subside and that horny funny feeling arises. Well do you want a straight pointer or linguini? The sad part is that hops are an anaphrodisiac which means in short that you are left a limp weanie and sleepy. What a bummer! One solution is to drink mead instead, that wonderful honey-inspired wine gift from the gods. Legend has it that the Viking god Odin was able to make love for 3 days straight after drinking 3 huge barrels. Not a bad campaign eh? Yeah but we are left with our love of beer. The bad news is in medieval times those Protestants put into law that hops must be used in the production of beer in order to take away that sexual feeling. I know I might be upsetting all you homebrewers and your love of hops but that is the fair truth. Before that our ancestors used all kinds of amazing herbs to not only make great beer called ale or gruit, but also made sure the sex was great. Bad news is that you might have to make your own because it is hard to find, but the good news is that you can feel like a Viking again on your next sexual conquest.
You can always count on a redhead to do something crazy! Like challenging the full force of a hurricane wearing nothing but his briefs.
Meet the modern day berserker, Lane Pittman. Berserkers, of ancient Norse origin, were known for their fierceness. They went into battle naked wearing nothing perhaps but bearskin, hence the name. In Lane’s case, nothing but flying red hair, white skin and blue shorts. Berserkers dedicated themselves to the Norse god Odin, leader of the Viking gods, a shapeshifter possessed by the spirit of the wolf or bear. Lane in his battle frenzy challenges the force of Hurricane Florence, shaking like a shaman to heavy metal music and brandishing the American flag. Go Red!

Freyja: Goddess of Magic, Love and Healing
Of all the Norse gods and goddesses, Freyja alone has enjoyed unbroken worship throughout history. Goddess of magic, love, fertility and healing, her name means “the lady”, as if to emphasize she is the epitome of woman. Patron of wise women, seeresses, rune-mistresses and healers, she is Mistress of Seidhr, the brewing of potions and herbal medicines. As goddess of beauty, she encourages self-awareness, appreciation for and acceptance of one’s own personal beauty. She was also able give new life to the slain. Called the Shining One, legend recounts how she was cast into fire three times, each time emerging unharmed, thus earning the name. Even the rune “F” for Freyja represents good health.
Women dedicated to Freyja travelled around healing people, and this inspired us create our shop Freyja’s Magic. In the spirit of Freyja, it is our mission to bring healing to others, and cultivate true beauty through our handmade body care, crafted in harmony with nature.
