    Yup it is. This is longer than I wanted it to be but the quick reply fairy indicated that a reply had to be more than 10 characters.

    I truly believe that to be a "member" of this site, you have to have a "few screws loose", and as I'm accustomed to working with "crazy people", I fit in quite well!!! Mainly, I am speaking about the 3 people who replied to my ?? about "the reply fairy". Cheers, fellows....Joan

    P.S. I seem to remember the question about rowans being mountain ash....I've heard there's stories/myths about some kind of spirits in Mtn ash trees...maybe, my brain is having difficulties. Bye...

    I've just spent five minutes tightening up all "loose screws"

    Here are a couple of snippets [with links] regarding Rowan/Mountain Ash

    Mythology and Folklore of the Rowan


    The rowan's mythic roots go back to classical times. Greek mythology tells of how Hebe the goddess of youth, dispensed rejuvenating ambrosia to the gods from her magical chalice. When, through carelessness, she lost this cup to demons, the gods sent an eagle to recover the cup. The feathers and drops of blood which the eagle shed in the ensuing fight with the demons fell to earth, where each of them turned into a rowan tree. Hence the rowan derived the shape of its leaves from the eagle's feathers and the appearance of its berries from the droplets of blood.

    The rowan is also prominent in Norse mythology as the tree from which the first woman was made, (the first man being made from the ash tree). It was said to have saved the life of the god Thor by bending over a fast flowing river in the Underworld in which Thor was being swept away, and helping him back to the shore. Rowan was furthermore the prescribed wood on which runes were inscribed to make rune staves.

    Native American Legends


    Legend of the mountain ash berries

    A Ojibwa Legend
    In late autumn or winter one will see an entirely different kind of tree dotted here and there among the green pines and spruce. These are Mountain Ash trees covered in a mass of brilliant red berries. The more berries on the tree, the more severe the winter will be. Why is this so? Legend relates that many years ago, even before Canada had a name, a severe and terrible winter set in. Snowdrifts formed in great heights and temperatures dropped to extraordinary degrees below zero.

    I'd like to think that we're eccentric. John Stuart Mill once wrote something to the effect that "eccentricity has always abounded where strength of character has abounded... and the amount of eccentricity in a society has generally been proportional to the amount of genius and mental vigor that it contained... that so few now dare be eccentric marks one of the chief dangers of the time." - Essay on Liberty - 1859.
