New Look!

Greetings from Svin!

I decided to make a few changes to the main page. Input and suggestions are most welcome. As my wife is fond of saying, "Don't freak out, it's not like it was a tattoo or something!" I took this picture of a "Legacy" flight last summer. After cropping it a bit I thought it would make a nice header picture. The aircraft are a P-51 Mustang, F-15 Eagle, F-22 Raptor, and F-16 Fighting Falcon. The quotation(if anyone has ever wondered) is from an old Viking text called "Grimnismal" It is attributed to the Norse God Odin and refers to his two Raven familiars named Huginn and Muninn (Thought and Memory) who whisper the news from faraway battlefields into his ears at night. His fear that they shall not return is prompted by their reports of endless fields of carrion for them to feed upon. It is a fittingly grim tale considering it's origins, and an appropriately cautionary one at that. The endless,mindless, slaying must one day stop or there will be only carnage left. Since surrender is not an option, we must prevail. Many thanks to all the Smackdown Warriors who, like Odin's Ravens, travel the world daily to spread the word.
