Noble Friends, Especially Vikings:

Today, October 9th, is Leif Erikson Day. Didn't know we had such a 
"holiday"? I didn't either. It is not recognized very much outside of 
the upper Midwest, a place where many proudly claim Scandinavian 
descent. Being only a proclamation day, amid a blizzard of such days 
(including National Talk Like a Pirate Day!), Leif Erickson's 
non-holiday tends to get overlooked:

Of course, if you want to know more about Leif Erickson himself, you 
could read this Wikipedia site: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leif_Erikson .

And here is a piece about Vinland: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vinland .

Yours Aye,

Lord Mungo Napier, That Crazy Scot
