Gnomes Vie for Ice Hockey Medal

It was Gnomes against Goblins in this last competition of the IMPS* Olympics.

Henri of Team Gnomes managed to pull off a hat-trick despite 2 offsides by the opposing Goblins in the first period.  But it was Team Goblins who won the match and the gold medal.

A number of minor penalties were called on both sides in what turned out to be a game for the ages with 10 overtimes.  The final score was 142 to 141.

Henri Smokes the Competition in the Halfpipe

Henri halfpipe

He isn’t called the Flying Potato for nothing!  This reporter was able to obtain  slo-mo footage of Henri performing his latest tricks which assured him the gold medal in the Halfpipe event.

The judges look for big air and amplitude.  And they were speechless after watching Henri execute a flawless 1280 double twist pepperoni 480 slide 960 back upside down triple toe front flip with a side of Canadian bacon.

The other competitors were awed and needless to say, the spectators went wild!

Henri Enters Skeleton Race!

After his silver medal success in the luge race at the IMPS* Olympics, Henri went on to win bronze in the Skeleton competition.  The gnomes from Gnorway won gold and silver in this event.

Henri also received a commendation for his original costume design.  This reporter has a feeling that Henri’s skeleton costume will be very popular at Halloween this year.

Gnomes Enter Curling Competition

Curling is a fan favourite at the IMPS* Olympics.

It was snowing quite a bit during the curling competition which accounts for the fuzzy photo.  However, the intrepid Team Gnome played on.  And captured the gold medal! Beard curling is also part of this event so gnomes have a definite edge.

(When I asked Henri why he doesn’t like sweeping at home, he pretended not to know what I was talking about.)

About Druid Tree Lore and Celtic Lunar Astrology
People have been marking the passage of time by the phases of the moon for millennia. Although it is impossible to say for certain because the lore and traditions were not written, many historians believe that both the Celts and Druids used a 13 month lunar calendar.  The months and symbols differ from the solar calendar with which most of us are familiar. Druidic horoscopes are often mentioned in legends.

Trees have long been a source of sacred folklore with each chosen to represent the months and having its own magickal properties. The Ogham symbols may have been devised by ancient Druids. As several of the symbols refer to trees, the ogham alphabet is often called the Tree Alphabet. These symbols are included next to the tree names which are shown in both English and Old Irish. The animal symbols are my interpretation based on various sources. The ruling planets of each sign are also noted.  The information provided here is an introduction to the wealth of knowledge concerning Druid teachings and Celtic lore.

Henri Takes Silver in Luge Competition

With the crowds cheering him on, Henri wins a silver medal in the Singles Luge Competition at the IMPS* Olympics.

It’s well-gknown that gnomes enjoy sledding.  So it should come as gno surprise that Team Gnome won gold, silver and bronze in this event.  Careening through the difficult course of hairpin turns and steep curves at breakneck speed, the gnomes iced the other competitors with record-setting times.  Herbert took home gold.  Horatio and Harold tied for bronze.
