So the wailing, hair tearing, sackcloth and ashes and the rest begins. The Icelanders played well and were worth their 2-1 win over England.
It is my fault, I should not have watched the match, it is my theory that I have a curse on the England team, when I watch they lose.
Anyhow, each of those with much in the of Atlantic Isles descent will have Vikings in the ancestral attic from around a thousand or more years ago.
We have had this before with Icelanders, notably in what came to be known as Scotland. Their battle songs were not a lot of laughs, even a couple of minutes are a long time.
The Viking lady above lived in Jorvik, or York as we know it. I suspect she was not a neighbour to argue with.
