Summer Solstice

The very Straight, very white guy of SWG, reminded me today is important.

I recall, when Uncle Rico was living in Iceland....

"Jónsmessa - St. John Baptist's Day - June 24th"

This day has inherited many of the customs and folklore
associated with Midsummers Day, three days before.
Regarded as one of the most magical nights of the year,
cows gain the ability of speech, seals transform into humans,
very propitious for looking for herbs, grasses,
and of course the Magical Stones.
These stones usually were supposed to lie at the
bottom of a particularly inaccessible lake
and you had to reach the site at midnight when
the stones would float to the surface.
The dew falling on this night has special healing powers,
but only if you roll in the dew - stark naked.

Anyway Eric, you better head on over to "Cousin Brad's" house, I am sure there are some cattle that have something to say to you, particulary after the de-horning. Oh, but go over naked and roll in the pasture a couple of times.
