BOUDICCA CELTIC WARRIOR QUEEN; HAPPY ST. PATRICK'S DAY; WOMAN'S DAY
"The Celts were a race of tribal warriors whose history and influence can be traced back to 1200 BC, to a period called the Bronze Age. They established themselves and their diverse culture all over Europe and into Ireland, England, Wales and Scotland. They had no real central government, each tribe bound only by its customs and religion, which included earthbound deities and sun gods. It wasn’t uncommon for tribes to go to war against each other. Each tribe was ruled by a King and his Queen and written Roman history states that women often rode into battle alongside the men. It was Herodotus, Greek writer and historian, who named the warrior race the “Keltoi”, a name that was later shortened to the Celts. Roman colonisation escalated in 43 AD and settlements and garrisons were established all over the countryside. Roman officials ignored the King’s will, and demanded Queen Boudicca hand over all her wealth and territories. When she refused, proclaiming her treatment as unfitting of a Roman ally, soldiers were ordered to arrest and flog her and then brutalise and rape her daughters. Once she was released and her daughters returned to her side, Boudicca was not content to sit back and allow the atrocities committed against her to go unanswered. She rallied the support of a neighbouring tribe, the Trinovantes, and also a few other Celtic tribes from the north, who had thus far refused to bow to Roman rule. Within a short time Queen Boudicca had amassed an army of over 100,000. Her first target was Comulodunum, a garrison of retired Roman soldiers. A Roman infantry of 5000 was sent to deal with the upstart Queen but they were also annihilated to the last man. Boudicca’s bloody rebellion moved on, her next targets Londinium and Verulamium and surrounding Roman settlements, which were all systematically sacked and burned. Several literary works have also been written based on her life and her accomplishments. One of the most popular is the poem, “Boadicea”, penned by Sir Alfred Lord Tennyson" ~Essortment.com

I've been making corned beef and cabbage all week for my boyfriend and son. They love it. I don't eat the meat. But I like the veggie's. I have to make more today. I tasted Irish soda bread today. It is so delicious. I don't remember having it before. But I love it. I put a little cream cheese on it and had some for breakfast. It was so good even without the cream cheese. I've been looking for the Kerrygold swiss cheese. I love it. Hopefully I will get some this week.

This is beautiful. The detail is amazing. I just voted for so many of your gorgeous blingees. I hope that you are feeling well. Today it was so beautiful outside. I believe it went up to around 61 degrees. Are you feeling better?
