However, this WAS Sweden. The whole north of Sweden was administered from here not so long ago.

That was an interesting tid bit. So, how did these magic properties manifest?

I think my hubby's ancestry might be mingled with Viking blood and who knows what other lines...maybe Spanish too. Maybe we should do a DNA test.

Quote:Some American Indians, like some Europeans, had rituals which they believed could induce rain. The Finnish people, on the other hand, were believed by others to be able to control weather. As a result, Vikings refused to take Finns on their oceangoing raids. Remnants of this superstition lasted into the twentieth century, with some ship crews being reluctant to accept Finnish sailors.

well it's true about some american indians/Rain Dance
..knew a half blooded indian guy who made it rain & stop raining three times (we were outside on my deck)one sunny day,3 sunshowers & no clouds in the sky at the time.
i didn't believe him when he said he could do it/then he did it 3x /stopped it 3x
(indian chant danced to start/indian chant danced to stop)
..it was AMAZING!
(i'm guessing he had hereditary shaman bloodline)

Quote:Between 1860 and 1924 some 370,000 people left Finland for North America to seek a better life. The main reasons to emigrate were unemployment, social problems and the period of ‘Russification’ before Independence--but a desire for adventure was also a factor. In America Finns worked in the forests and the mines. While out in the woods and at trade union meetings they met Native Americans and even married some of them. The majority of marriages were with members of the Ojibwa tribe, the largest in the region. Finns tended to have less knowledge about their new home country--and therefore also fewer prejudices about the people native to the land.

My mothers haplotype is common in Scandinavia, but that's because the Vikings used to kidnap women from Britain.

More than that, recent studies have shown that a MUCH higher percentage of the people of England, Scotland and Ireland have Viking blood than anyone would have guessed.

What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
