  1. Speechless is an adjective that describes a state where strong emotion or physical trauma temporarily deprives one of speech a state of shock that renders one speechless. I have been punched with such force in the belly that I am rendered speechless. That's a form of physical trauma. I have seen ladies so stunning, so mesmerising, that I am rendered speechless. That's an emotional shock, the good kind fascinating, awe-striking, spellbinding and hypnotising even. It's the wonderful sort of speechlessness that comes with a dab of anxiousness, a touch of nervousness and a dose of excitement.
  2. Please accept this as my formal citizenship resignation; I believe to have conducted myself in the most honourable fashion and always took the name of the Empire above all. Respectfully Thorald
  3. My favourite military strategists are : . Khalid Ibn al-Walid, . Sun Tzu . Carl von Clausewitz, . Napoleon Bonaparte, . Erwin Rommel . Maurice, Prince d'Orange
  4. The rule of tincture : metal should not be put on metal, nor colour on colour. This means that Or and Argent (gold and silver, which are represented by yellow and white) may not be placed on each other; neither may any of the colours (azure, gules, purpure, vert and sometimes sable) be placed on another colour. One of the most famous armes à enquérir was the arms chosen by Godfrey of Bouillon, and later used by his brother Baldwin of Boulogne when he was made King of Jerusalem, which had five gold crosses on a silver field (traditionally rendered "Argent a Cross potent between four plain
  5. The point will be the monarch’s morality, his sub-forum “La Cage Aux Folles” and postings in “http://micras.org/forum/viewtopic.php?f=5&t=3838”.
  6. Germany is a wine-producing country and produces wines in many styles: dry, semi-sweet and sweet white wines, rosé wines, red wines and sparkling wines (called Sekt). Winegrowing was brought to Germany by the Roman conquerors between the 1st and 4th century, in the Western part of the country. It spread to the rest of the country along with the spread of Christianity under Charlemagne during the 9th century. In the past, vineyards were controlled by the Catholic Church until Napoleon took control of Germany. Under his rule, Church vineyards were divided into small parcels and redis
  7. Maybe the following research will help you : The shamanistic priesthood focusing especially on magical women known as völur and the chieftain-priests called goðar or godi or gothi or temple-priest. Their power and functions were probably the same in Norway as in Sweden or Denmark before the time of Harald Fairhair of Norway, Gorm of Denmark, and Eirik of Sweden. In the earliest times of the godis, whose office was called Godord (Godiship), were the leaders at sacrifices and spiritual rulers of the people and their descendants united both the spiritual and temporal power. The position
  8. I like to say : One day, long, long ago, in a land far, far away, there lived a woman who did not whine, nag or bitch. But it was a long time ago and it was just that one day.
  9. The concept of English wine was once as absurd as German bananas. But England's summers have been warmer and drier from year to year. The effects of climate change have been tangible in the British Isles for some time and oenophile Britons are trying to take advantage of those effects to make wine. The pioneers were practically treated as wine-drunk lunatics, but now the exotic industry is experiencing a veritable boom. The quality of many of the English wines is remarkable. When the G-20 heads of state rushed to London in April to save the world economy, one of the wines they were serve
