    @E.M.: You are very intelligent and perceptive. You just got the hidden meaning of ELECTRON (ήλεκτρον :ēlektron) , the “She” side of the universe: “Natura naturans”
    Before YING force even the Neutrons (so cherished by Oliver Manuel) can´t do anything.
    Those “witches” above have more power than those silly “Robber Barons” :-)

    Gotta show my roots, lol.

    Traditional upbringing in Cape Breton Nova Scotia leads to many talents.

    Our last two cruises had these beautiful women quartets, that played at different scheduled times and locations. Any time that my spouse was looking for me, she knew where to find me. Oops!

    Flash looking shiella’s that can play a fiddle like that, have the world at their feet, and most men a little weak in the knee. Excellent and most unusual posting.

    @Wayne Job:

    Thanks! But it was hard to put the right list together… just so… Getting it right. I had to watch HOURS of stuff, like this one:

    It was so draining…

    At the end of this one, one of the Bond Girls speaks. Sounds Australian to me… so a Real Sheila!

    Well, I think I’ve been captured by YouTube again…

    I want to know how I get a job dancing the background as “the older pudgy guy”…

    Asian, British accent, Little Red Dress… what’s not to like?

    ( I think the third judge has it wrong… she shows lots of personality…)

    Hava Nagila like I’ve never seen before…

    Then from such innocence to Bond Gaga surreal…

    Even in Mongolia

    Something about this reminds me of Celtic mountain music from America… and those redheads in tartan near Mongolia

    It would appear that some things are highly cross-cultural and inter-temporal too…

    Looks like the Little Red Dress has made it to Mongolia as well:

    Who knew?

    @E.M. What an strange coincidence. Is Gaia behind this conspiracy? :-)

    Certainly it must be mother earth ;-)

    In prior postings I’ve speculated on a Celtic / Slavic “connection” some 10,000+ years ago. ( R1b vs R1a Y chromosome split from R1 base type, Indo-European language base, some other bits including many shared mitochondrial DNA types).

    I’ve also pointed out the Celtic tendency to Women Warriors and we noted in passing a Slavic tribe that had a similar Women Warrior clan (and some burial mounds with women buried with military grave goods from thousands of years back). In W.W.II, a Russian woman was one of their most successful snipers and they had several women sniper squads.

    Well, just as a bit of evidence of that ‘connection’ (and no, while there is music, there’s no string performance video) here’s a video I stumbled on of Slavic Women in the Military. Seems they like women packing guns too ;-) (Nothing like a woman with an AK-47 to raise the old blood pressure… one way or another ;-)

    There’s a significant overlap in phenotypes (by observation) as well. I could see a pretty good Celtic / Slavic party going down in that Bavaria / Czech area where they found Celts making beer a few thousand years back ;-)

    They DO have the same “Women and Strings” musical motif:

    A fair amount of searching for a Latin equivalent didn’t turn up much (maybe you will have better luck?) Just a case of an orchestra being assembled with some female violinists in it and what looks like a party broke out ;-)

    Even searching on “latina violin” didn’t turn up much.

    What’s with you Latin folks? Not taking a lead from Gaia?

    Look, you are about to be left behind in the whole Women String Quartet and Women&Guns video arenas! Heck, probably don’t even like women bullfighters ;-)

    Must be that Roman influence…
