So I opened my mouth, and Spewed forth my opinion of thinking that
"nordsteorra" was a heinous name for a Principality.  

And Ulfie sayeth: 

>  I do.  I like that name.  I held that office twice.

That's great... so you like that name.. And when you were NR herald, that was
your title.   But why in the world name a P~ for a herald?!?  That would say
to me Northern Ansteorra is a bunch of heralds.. that is the strongest point
of that area.. and we all know that that is a flat out lie... To me, naming
the Northern p~ "Nordsteorra" is moot.  We can't ... that is a tiltle that is
in use... I think we need to come up w/ a different name that is just as
beautiful, and conveys the same idea.

Ahh.... those were the days... eek!

Hey, I am in no way knocking this point.  I do agree. I am proud to be an
Ansteorran and just as proud to be from the North.

I did not go here... this is not my log .

Ulfie, I think you may have missed the point... I do not want to see paper
work bypass the kingdom again.  And to see the people who send the paperwork
and proposals do so from their living room and excluding the majority of the
population of the North.  I do not want to see people be left out of that
process, unless it is their wish.

I know.  And thank you for agreeing with me.

>  So calm down.

Hee hee.... Ummm, I am calm. I really am enjoying this debate.  Actually, I am
more calm, and more rational at this moment in time than I have been in the
past few months.  

>  Don't pick on Mic, at least not about this.

I am not picking on Mic....I love the guy, he's way cool.  I just think that
most people are not used to me spewing forth my opinions in such a forthright
manner and in such a public forum.

Please see above... for Annais'  opinion.

EEEWWWWW!!! YUCK!  I don't like this idea.  Why not the other way around?
Now, see above.. find a different name for the P~, taht still conveys the same

Blue?... OK we can do blue... as long as there is some masonry somewhere in it
