Another nifty item in Waterford

This knife is recent discovery.  I expect the interpretation of the inscription is accurate, but if I were using putting it in a story, I’d be tempted to have the ‘real’ meaning so more like, ‘when I kill you, I pray for your soul to go to heaven.’


Vikings on the History Channel

I don’t have cable, so I’ll have to wait to see the new Vikings History Channel show on Netflix and reserve judgment until then.  Although as the co-author of a novel-in-progress about Vikings, it seems like nothing but good news.  In my fantasies, Vikings will be the next big thing, bigger than vampires and for sure bigger than zombies.  I don’t get the appeal of zombies anyway.  Vikings are much better.

Plus they filmed in Ireland!  Woot!
