Lalani Matheson AOR The onion. We all know it. Probably the most common vegetable for cooking, from raw slices on our hamburgers to the powder we season the meat with. It also seems to fall into the category of either loved unconditionally or loathed completely.

By Mark Puryear The game of Tafl, “Tables,” or Hnefatafl, “King’s Tables,” is an ancient pastime that was played by our ancestors as far back as 400 AD, until it was superseded by chess around 1000 A.D.

By Jennifer H AOR Self Reliance is one of our NNV. We can be self reliant in any number of areas. However, I would like to take a moment to speak with you about the importance of self reliance in one of the most basic areas of humans existence. Food.

by Hengest OR I have not posted about my allotment since Jim C wrote a report about it way back in August 2010 so I thought I would share some of what I have learned in that time.

by Eowyn OR There are times in our lives when wyrd plunges us into some very difficult circumstances. So when synchronicities suggest that you do something, which ostensibly is going to contribute to their deepening, one questions the sanity of the decision! Such has been my situation with practically no income to replenish my dwindling reserves. So when synchronicity tapped me on the shoulder and showed me an opportunity to fulfil an ambition to visit and experience the energies of a couple of crop circles, I had the most seriously sombre conversation with my inner Bag lady! Happily, the loopy lady consented with a toothy grin- and is still smiling manically!

Our ancestors were not just warriors - in fact many people mistakenly believe Odinism to be purely a warrior religion. Although there is a strong warrior aspect to Odinism, one of the key areas in which our ancestors thrived was in agriculture.

A great video by a young lady by the name of Elise showing how a simple experiment can show the extent that even foods we might consider natural are tampered with and polluted by agrochemicals.

Planet Earth is a living, breathing entity. We have all at some point in our schooling come across the subject of geography, which describes Earth's terrain in terms of Her structure- mountains, continents, rivers, rocks and so forth. This is her skeleton.
