A better burden No man bears on the way Than good sense and manners; A worse provision He cannot carry on the way Than too much beer-bibbing.
With some wise words by Odin I’m welcoming Jangka to my blog with this picture of their Odin Headdress (unisex) and Odin Armbands (Legacy M). The headdress immediately inspired this Norse shaman, I hope you like it! Please note that these armbands have some modern components, if you’re looking for more medieval style ones do check out other products in the Jangka store.
I feel it’s important to point out that most Scandinavians, or Nordic even because it includes Iceland, during the Viking age… weren’t Vikings. They did make blood sacrifice in honor of the Norse gods, yes, it definitely was a rough time during the Middle Ages but most people weren’t savage warriors however; they were farmers and fishermen and merchants. When iron was put to use in farming, production went up and land became scarce and some people decided to set sail to other countries to raid and plunder in order to make a living. They went ‘viking’ and they gave a name to the entire Nordic poplulation that lived during that time. Ok ok you say, so what am I blogging?
I’m blogging some amazing creations that have been released for this round of Men Only. The beautiful tattoo is by CORAZON, the kilt by L’Emporio & PL and if you look close enough you can see face scratches by NoRush. I’m blogging them again later, and closer, in another picture just because they look amazing as far as scratches go.
Keeping people out of your life who contribute nothing positive is called intelligence.
I’ve started a big clean out of the property at home; old junk, double sets of this and that, broken things and things not in use anymore. Everything needs to be tossed out. I’ve always found it easy to get rid of things and when you’ve tossed something out it stays out and you’re free to renew your home or wardrobe or whatever. People are definitely harder to get rid of though, for most of us, even when they don’t bring anything positive to our lives. But, and this is true in all things; if there’s no gain in keeping, there’s no loss in weeding out. I’m tossing “everything” out! 😜

Juneteenth equals freedom and freedom is what America is about!
Congressmember Sheila Jackson Lee – TX18
Juneteenth falls on June 19th every year and celebrates the end of slavery in the US. While Abraham Lincoln signed the Emancipation Proclamation back in January 1st in 1863, it took a few years for many enslaved African-American people to claim their freedom. June 19th in 1865 marks the day when more than 1,800 troops arrived in Texas to free the remaining enslaved people in the state. Since then, African-American people across the US celebrate Juneteenth with various festivities and events. As of this year, 2021, Juneteenth is a national federal holiday and I believe everyone should celebrate this day. Happy Juneteenth, AMERICA!
When all americans are treated as equal, no matter who they are or whom they love, we are all more free.
Wise words by ex-President Barack Obama. He was talking about americans to americans, of course, as America has more human rights issues it needs to work on before it can truly be the land of the free. Right here right now though, is Pride Month and I think Melissa Etheridge once said ‘Love is never wrong’. As long as it’s between consenting adults, I say heck yeah, enjoy the love!
