Happy Saint George's Day

Happy Saint George's Day, the Patron Saint of England.

In old England, brave George is remembered for summoning tremendous strength, courage and determination. He killed the dragon that has been attacking the villagers, destroying their crops and turning their homes into ashes.

Saint George and The Dragon visit London City
 
St. George was actually an outspoken Roman soldier serving a Pagan Emperor. He protested the treatment and torture of Christians by his fellow Romans. 

He paid for his beliefs when he made a plea to the Emperor Diocletian to spare the lives if Christians. The Emperor decided that if George cared so much for these lowly citizens, then he must also be a devout Christian himself.  He was tortured to force him to deny his faith and when this did not yield the desired response, he was beheaded, at the age of 33.

The slaying of the dragon is symbolic of the courage George showed against the Emperor.  It is however a little ironic that George did not win his battle, nor did he ever set foot in England.  He was born in Turkey and died in Palestine.

Saint George's day was adopted in 1222, when he replaced Saint Edmund the Martyr (King of East Anglia) as England's Patron Saint.

What a delightful chap Ebbe Linden is.  He wants to take us back to the golden olden days of Lindens in World and us all working together.

Wants to rework the TOS and is adamant that LL in no way lays claim to other peoples intellectual property.

Wants to improve the latency and performance of SL and appeal to the masses instead of the million.

He tells me that he appreciates all the work we put in to building communities.

I enquire about tier fees.  He says, they haven't crossed that bridge yet.
