LEGEND OF THE BANSHEE (YET ANOTHER TAKE) The Banshee By Andy Paciorek (with permission) (Artwork by Andy Paciorek) Also known as: Beansidhe, Bean-Si, Benshee, Fairy Woman, Woman of the Hills, Bachuntas, Badbh-Chaointes, Cointeach, Wailers, The Keener, The One Who Keens, Mna-Sige, Mna-Sidhe, Cyhiraeth, Cyraeth, Cyoerrath, Cyhyraeth, The White Lady of Sorrows, The Weeper, The Skree, Caoineag, Caointeach, Fear-Sidh, Seinn-Bais, Death Music, Tolaeth, Ghost Sounds, Bocanachs, Bowa. The wail of the Banshee (known as the Keening) is said to be heard either by the person whose death is imminent, or by someone closely associated to them. People with a strong Celtic bloodline are considered more likely to encounter a Banshee, and some old families may hold a peculiarly strong bond with one of these creatures. This is sometimes thought to indicate a distant Fay strain within their genes but others have suggested an earthier, more sinister reasons for the connection. The finger points at certain reputedly Banshee-ridden families with the accusation that one of their ancestors murdered a young lady, possibly a pregnant mistress or other similar unfortunate, and so it is believed that their descendants must carry a reminder of this shame for evermore. The shadow of this sin falls at the approach of their darkest hours and may be specifically regarded as being a Hateful Banshee. To those who have not heard the Banshee’s cries (and count themselves lucky for this), it is often imagined that this must be a loud, dreadful noise and sometimes it has been reported as such (usually in the cases of Hateful Banshees), but not always. Sometimes her Keening was described as being oddly melodic and strangely comforting, especially if heard by someone who was old and failing, had endured a long, discomforting illness or was of a family favoured by the Faeries. □ For even more banshee folklore, check out Banshees at My Irelands Past.

17 – We Slip On Flip Flops and Get Some R&R
This episode is all about America and the things that make it great, like veteran-owned businesses. HOOAH! OORAH! Aim High! Anchor's Away! First, we drain our canteens just to refill them with beer at a brewery owned by a retired Army colonel. Next, we trade our combat boots for something more comfortable and speak with "battle buddies" who are impacting former war zones with their flip-flop foot fetish. That's a lot of F-bombs.
