Chaos-Music : Hi how are you doing?

Linda: Just wonderful, and hopefully you are too!

Sara - Fucking Excellent \m/

Wanda - Fine, thanks.

Chaos-Music : Firts can you present your self to the audience ?

Aja - I'm Aja Kim - lead vocalist and I play Bruce 'Lee' Chickinson

Wanda - My name is Wanda Ortiz and I play bass for the Iron Maidens as "Steph Harris".

Linda: I'm Linda McDonald and I do my best to represent Clive Burr and Nicko McBrain in The Iron Maidens. I'm called Nikki McBURRain in this band.

Sara - I play Dave parts stage right. I got the name MiniMurray from the Austin Powers movies cuz I'm a midget compared to Murray!

Chaos-Music : Can you give us a short picture of the band?


Linda: We formed in 2001 just wanting to play Maiden and have fun doing it. We realized from our very first rehearsal that there were always people gathering outside the door peeking in and watching us and learned very quickly there was definitely a market for girls who love to play Iron Maiden!

Wanda - Everyone in the band had already known each other through playing in bands together or through friends and acquaintances. One day, one of us decided it would be fun to form an all-girl tribute to Iron Maiden and approached the rest of us. Coincidentally, Iron Maiden just happened to be a favorite band for all of us so we all thought it would be a lot of fun.
The band was started out as just a fun project but after the first few gigs, we started getting calls from many clubs throughout the US. This project now keeps us pretty busy!

Aja- When I joined the band, it was going strong already and the girls had established a great reputation for themselves. I was excited to become part of such a remarkable group of musicians. They deliver the music better than many men I've heard play it (sorry guys, but it's true!! :-) . People seem to agree because our audience continues to grow and we're breaking attendance records all over the place!

Chaos-Music : Have you got some parallel projects beside THE IRON MAIDENS ?

Wanda - In addition to the Maidens, I freelance as an independent musician pretty extensively for various different projects or groups. My last gig was with the Marina Del Rey Symphony Orchestra (on upright bass). I’m also a regular member of the South Coast Symphony in Southern California.

Sara - I play with Linda in an Ozzy tribute called The Little Dolls.

Linda: I play with Sara/MiniMurray in a female tribute to Ozzy Osbourne ( and other miscellaneous side-man drummer jobs when time permits, mostly with Carina Alfie ( and Meldrum ( . You can check out too and in the jukebox for samples.

Aja - Yes I have a solo CD out called Modern Babylon - it's a rock and soul kind of thing - quite different from what I do with the Maidens. I'm working on a follow - up to it, which is going to be a little heavier. It may take a while because the Iron Maidens keep me pretty busy! You can check Modern Babylon out at my website : or on myspace:

Chaos-Music : Did you find any difficulties given that you're females?

Sara - No. It makes me work harder so that's a blessing.

Aja - Not really but there are always a few throwbacks who feel women have no business in metal at all. But talent will out in the end. We have a lot of converts in our audience who didn't believe us to be capable until they came to a show or bought the CD.

Linda: None at all. We all get along great and love what we're doing and are as drama-free as bands get; the bookers and people seem to admire that! Hee hee! The audiences can feel that and seem to appreciate what we do. To top it off, we have the best manager in the world who makes sure these kinds of difficulties son't exist for us.

Wanda - All-girl bands are still somewhat of a novelty these days, especially with this type of music. Many people will come to show simply because they are curious. Occasionally, there are people at our shows who have this preconception that women cannot play this style of music competently. However, once they see us pull it off, preconceptions go out the window and everyone starts having a good time.

Chaos-Music : Tell us a bit more about the recordings of "Tribute To Maiden" like where you recorded it , how you decided on a studio and producer, who came up with the cover artwork ect...

Linda: Sara, Mark (our manager) and I checked out about a dozen studios, Silver Cloud being one of the last ones. When we walked in there we just knew that was where we wanted to record. There was a definitely a vibe in that studio and the people there were just so chilled and no pressure no nonsense. The fact that Bruce Dickinson, amongst many others like Rob Halford, Megadeth, and more recorded there was a bonus! When it came to the cover art we had many submissions by Maiden fans that hopefully will be used on something else, but we contacted Derek Riggs with the idea that we really wanted this tribute CD to be put out in all its glory and make it as authentic as possible with a brand new original piece of art from him. He was happy with the idea and came up with Edwina T. Head, our very own female monster inspired by the one and only Paris Hilton.

Sara - Well, once we got the idea, it kinda grew it's own head. To finish the monster, it was a true labor of love. We did everything, besides Derik Riggs doing the front artwork - everything underneath is us expressing our love for Iron Maiden and the respect we have for the band. We even included fan art cuz we're such fans ourselves. That's also how we found Silver Cloud Studio - weird trivia freaks that we are!

Wanda - Because there were so many people requesting a CD from us at our shows, we finally decided to make one. Here are a couple facts Maiden fans might be interested in: the CD was recorded at Silvercloud Recording Studios (in Burbank, California) where Bruce Dickinson has also recorded. We recorded classic Maiden tunes and we had Derek Riggs do the artwork. All our decisions in regards to the CD were made to assist us in our goal of emulating an Iron Maiden CD as closely as possible.

Aja - Recording at Silvercloud, where Bruce recorded most of his solo work was a really inspiring and challenging experience. I was walking in the footsteps of giants there and on my breaks I'd look at the CD covers on the wall and remind myself of that. Singing is so mental and the hardest part was the tight schedule - I recorded the lead and backing vocals for 10 songs in about 2 1/2 days. So what you hear is a pretty much a live performance and a good indication of what you'll get when you come to a show. And we do have an Edwina as well as an Eddie!

Chaos-Music : Did the crowd found a big differences between your tribute and Iron Maiden?

Wanda -Yes, because we're women there is an obvious difference in vocal quality and appearance.

Aja -Yes, we smell better! LOL! Seriously, we've gotten wonderful responses from the fans and the people who have reviewed our CD. These women don't sound like "girls" when they play. Since there's no hiding the obvious differences between a male and female voice, my personal goal is to convey the emotion and power Bruce gives to a song as best I can. It's a great compliment when fans say the feeling they get when they see us is similar to how they feel at a real Iron Maiden show. But to quote MiniMurray - we don't write 'em, we just play 'em!

Sara - It's really a great chance to hear Maiden in a small club environment; close up and personal. If your front row Eddie will feed you a snack off his brain platter during Flight Of Icarus, or maybe you'll feel the chill of the CO2 tanks going off in your face during 666.

Linda: Another difference is the material we cover; we play more of the ealier material that Iron Maiden doesn't play live too often any more. The Maiden fans really seem to like that.

Chaos-Music : What was the reaction of Iron Maiden Members after hearing your tribute ?

Sara - "They don't play like girls do they"

Linda: Oh, to be a fly on the wall! Ha ha ha. I know one of the members was rumored to have said we don't play like girls.........Sara, I guess you heard that one too huh! Michael Kenney, the keyboardist for Maiden, sits in and performs with us at high profile gigs every once in a while. He doesn't seem to think we sound all that bad. :-)

Aja - I have no idea if they've even heard it but if they have I hope they accept it in the spirit given, which is from a place of love and respect for the music.

Wanda - I don't know because I wasn't there when (and if) they listened to our CD (they have never seen us perform live).

Chaos-Music : How did it feel playing With Mr. Nico MCbrain? And what did he think about your band ?

Aja - It was a little scary! Something like this doesn't happen every day. But Nicko is very kind and a really cool guy. Funny, too. He said Wanda has much better gams (legs) than Steve. Always joking! But he did come out from behind the kit after I sang the Trooper and he gave me a hug in front of the whole place and told me I sounded great. That meant a great deal to me.

Wanda - It was a lot of fun playing with Nicko but I was very nervous because I wanted to make a good impression. He was a really nice guy and was very supportive.

Linda: I got to play photographer that night but I had a great time watching him jam with my bandmates! I can only imagine how it must have felt to play with him! Wow!

Sara - I had to work that day dammit!

Chaos-Music : Are you in touch with alex skolnick? I saw a show in wich you played together (The Trooper)?

Linda: Alex is a good friend of Josephine, our former Adrianne Smith. He was her guitar teacher at one point in time and she obviously learned very well from him! We were touring in New York and he come down to say hello and join us on stage to play The Trooper. It was incredible!

Sara - Alex is a huge supporter; what a great guy and player and totally down to earth. I saw him at Namm last year jammin some jazz with a bass player - what a treat!

Wanda - I think that some of the other girls stay in touch with him since they were friends before this band was formed. I've only met him once (when he played with us) and I thought he was a very nice guy and a great musician.

Chaos-Music : Aren't you thinking of starting your own new album?

Wanda -Yes.

Linda: I think it would be silly not to think about doing that. Keep checking our website for any updates or news, or better yet, sign up on our emailing list at and you won't miss a thing!!

Sara - All the time. Damn if this project doesn't keep us jumpin as it is....

Aja - Some of us are doing a little writing together, but we'll have to see what happens........

Chaos-Music : What about your relationship with other metal bands from USA and Europe?

Linda: We've got friends everywhere between the 5 of us, yes, even in Guam!! I know a lot of drummers and guitar players in very well-respected bands and it's always a plus to have these good relationships around the world. You never know where we'll be playing next!

Aja - It's a nice feeling when people like Lemmy and Phil of Motorhead respect what you do. Phil sat in with us a couple of times. Linda played a few shows on their bill here with a band called Meldrum and I went to see the show in Anaheim. Phil asked if I wanted to sit in with them on Killed by Death. No need to ask twice! Lemmy was cool with it and it was really fun - and LOUD!!!! They were completely amazing!

Wanda - We always try to help each other out if we can.

Sara - There's lots of great bands out there; we meet alot on the road and here in L.A. We find they have a huge love for music, and it's a great community that supports each other so that the music can continue to grow and prosper. Good live music should be encourgaged!

Chaos-Music : What do you think about the evolution of Heavy Metal, and about the evolution of bands like MANOWAR & VIRGIN STEELE?

Aja -The fact that these bands are still around speaks for itself, doesn't it? Metal will continue to evolve - metal music lovers are some of the most dedicated fans there are and a new generation of young people are discovering the power of real music played by real people again. They've been raised on a diet of beat boxes and protools and they're hungry for more. They're turning to the pioneers like Iron Maiden who are still releasing important work and finding new young fans who are inspired by both what they've done in the past and what they continue to do in the future.

Wanda -I think it's great. I'm glad heavy metal is still around and that people are still trying new things within that genre of music.

Sara - Manowar is east coast huh.... I never saw them live but their image is hmmmmm - sexy!

Linda - Sexy indeed!

Chaos-Music : When did the things started to be serious for the band ? I mean, when did you begin to play gigs outside of USA?

Linda: Even though the band was started up as a fun thing, it was always taken seriously because of the nature of the songs we were playing. Ever since our first show about 5 years ago we have never had a problem getting bookings and are lucky to perform almost every weekend of the year plus tours and mid week dates. A couple years after this band began we started playing out of the country. We've been to Japan, Korea, Guam, Mexico and Canada so far and would love to get to more places!!!

Sara - We've gotten a lot of offers for other shows but so far the ones Linda mentioned have only been feasible. We have a large show with props, monsters, special effects and equipment wise several eras of Iron Maiden songs to play. These have always been integral parts for our show and we would never cheat our audience and do without just to travel.

Aja - For me - right away! After all, this is the only female band in the world who cover Iron Maiden so people are curious. Women playing Maiden is a pretty rare thing! My first show was at The Galaxy Theater in Santa Ana, CA, which is a venue that national and international acts also play (Check out the Trooper video on the demo page on our website: - it was taken from that show.) Three months later we were in Japan playing the Trooper for the troops! We would like to do even more shows outside the US - we get so many requests from fans all over the world - Europe, South America, Australia...and yes - Morocco! Are you listening, promoters??!! ;-P

Chaos-Music : What bands would you like to tour with if given the opportunity?

Sara - I think I could offer Kelly Clarkson's band a real kick in the pants.

Wanda - It would be cool to tour with Iron Maiden as an opening act. It would also be a lot of fun to tour with some of the newer bands like Marilyn Manson, Korn, or System of a Down.

Linda: Soul Fly and of course Maiden! Foo Fighters would be fun too!

Aja - Of course we can dream about touring with the mighty Maiden - but it would be freaky to play their music under those circumstances! I'd much rather hear Maiden play Maiden anyway! I guess we'd have to do something else! for thought!

Chaos-Music : What will be your answer if you receive an offer asking you to play here in morocco?

Wanda -Yes!

Aja - We would love to come to Morocco! Contact our manager, Mark Dawson. You can reach him at

Linda: My passport is valid and my bags are packed! May I have a window seat please?

Sara - What kind of local beers may I taste?

Chaos-Forum : What would you say to the young upstart female metal band?

Sara - In the words of Churchill - "We Shall Never Surrender!"

Linda: Practice and play as much as you can, never get on your knees for anyone and say no to drugs.

Wanda - Keep at it and don't give up or get discouraged. Anything worth working for will not be easy to get.

Aja - Practice hard and play hard. Have fun - but don't party too hard!

Chaos-Music : Thank you so much for your time and i wish you ladies all the best of luck as you continue forward. So what can you say to your moroccan supporters?

Aja - Thanks so much for wanting to know more about our band and for the support! We hope to meet you at a show real soon!

Sara - Thank you so much for finding our project and loving what we do as much as we do. CHEERS!

Linda: Thanks for reading this interview and Up the Bloody Irons, Morocco!!! Please visit us at !!!!

Wanda - Thanks for supporting metal and thanks for checking us out ~ hopefully we'll see you in Morocco one day!

Botany, the study of plants, occupies a peculiar position in the history of human knowledge. ,For many thousands of years it was

the one field ,wow power leveling,of awareness about which humans had anything more

than the vaguest of insights. It is impossible to know today just what our Stone Age ancestors knew about plants, but form what we

can observe of pre-industrial societies that still exist a detailed learning of plants and their properties must be extremely

,wow power leveling,
This is logical. Plants are the basis of the food pyramid for all living things even for other plants. They have always been

enormously important to the welfare of people not only for food, but also for clothing, weapons, tools, dyes, medicines, shelter,

and a great many other purposes. Tribes living today in the jungles of the Amazon recognize literally hundreds of plants and know

many properties of each. To them, botany, as such, has no name and is probably not even recognized as a special branch of "

knowledge" at gold,

Unfortunately, the more industrialized we become the farther away we move from direct contact with plants, and the less distinct

our knowledge of botany grows. Yet everyone comes unconsciously on an amazing amount of botanical knowledge, and few people will

fail to recognize a rose,an apple, or an orchid.flyff penya, When our Neolithic ancestors,

living in the Middle East about 10,000 years ago, discovered that certain grasses could be harvested and their seeds planted for

richer yields the next season the first great step in a new association of plants and humans was taken. Grains were discovered and

from them flowed the marvel of agriculture: cultivated crops.flyff penya, From then on,

humans would increasingly take their living from the controlled production of a few plants, rather than getting a little here and a

little there from many varieties that grew wild- and the accumulated knowledge of tens of thousands of years of experience and

intimacy with plants in the wild would begin to fade away.
wow gold,
In the last decades, the development of market oriented economy has brought a large number of newly emerging things into our daily

life. Yet when it comes to one of these new things lottery, welfare lottery in particular, some people believe that it creates a

good social atmosphere while others argue that the opposite is true. There is probably a little bit of truth in both statements.

But in recent years, lottery has done a lot to support the view that it does more good than harm.
wow gold,
On one hand, welfare lottery encourages people to do small kindness for the welfare of others as well as for the profit of oneself.

When we read the daily newspapers, we are ,wow gold,
frequently appraised of the "Big Kindness" performed by well-to-do philanthropists who donate large sums of money for the

establishment of schools, libraries, free hospitals for the poor, orphanages,and the like. These, of course, are laudable acts of

charity that deserve wide public acclaim. But in my estimation, not all the people have the financial ability to support these "Big

Kindness",archlord money,,and those many minor acts of kindness performed daily in

different situations by public minded citizens who receive no recognition or praise from the mass media are equally

commendable.Similarly, welfare lottery provide the majority of people a chance to perform this kind of small kindness.

My friend Peggy and I had both been to Paris before, but always as chaperones for youth groups or part of adult groups, seeing all the usual tourist sites and hearing the same tour guide recitations. This would be the first time on our own -- without responsibilities and free to go anywhere and try anything.
maple story mesos,

On previous trips we had seen all the famous monuments and "tourist sights." The guidebooks claimed that locals were rude and indifferent to visitors but there had to be more to the people of Paris than that. This time we wanted to find the real Parisians.
wow gold,

We spent some time exploring small shops and lesser-known museums and churches. We walked along canals and down narrow lanes, seeing a different Paris, but still not making any real contact with the people of this magnificent city.

One evening, with the help of the night clerk at our quaint hotel, we found a tiny cafe known only to locals. Nestled inside a dark passage, its unlit sign read, "Chez Maurice." We peeked in the small window on the door to see a small room with half a dozen tables, each with enough chairs for eight patrons. We opened the heavy door and went inside.
world of warcraft power leveling,

We were greeted by a burly proprietor, whose smile faded when he discovered we were foreigners with a limited command of the French language. He turned his back and retreated to the kitchen, muttering under his breath and slowly shaking his head from side to side. Not a good start.

A moment passed and a young woman led us to our seats at the other end of a table already occupied by an elderly couple. She gave us two menus.

For a few minutes we struggled to recall a few French words, but discovered that the descriptions of each dish were too much for us.
world of warcraft gold,

Our table mates noticed our dilemma. The old man leaned over and began explaining each dish, one at a time. Since he spoke very little English, his translations took the form of elaborate gestures and animal sounds. A fish entree was depicted as a fish swimming upstream, jumping and splashing in the water. For the beef dish, he pretended that his hands were horns on the side of his head, accompanied by a 'mooing' sound.

When the young waitress returned, we placed our order and our new 'friends' gave her explicit instructions on how to prepare the food and what side dishes we should have. Despite our limited ability to speak the other's language, we continued our lively conversation throughout the meal. We discovered that they were in their seventies and had been sweethearts for about ten years. She lived nearby in Paris, while he lived in the country. They met here once a week to share a pleasant dinner. Frankly, I have no idea how we understood each other, but we talked about the beauty of Paris, our lives and families, and of course, our other travels.
world of warcraft power leveling,

Near the end of the evening, a flower vendor made her way through the cafe. We watched as the old gentleman purchased a bouquet. Artfully, he plucked two flowers from the bunch, presented the bouquet to his lady, and gave her a kiss. Then, bowing smartly in our direction, he held out a rose, one for each of us.

We had found our Paris.

Jacob Have I Loved
Our story is called Jacob Have I Loved ,by Katherine Paterson. It received the Newbery Award for the best book written for young people in the United States. The story takes place on Rass Island in the Chesapeake Bay along the eastern coast of the United States, near Maryland and Virginia. The story is told by Sara Louise Bradshaw, a 13-year-old girl who lives with her parents and her twin sister Caroline. Here is Gwen Outen with the story.
wow power leveling,
Rass Island lies as low as the back of a turtle on the dark green water of the Chesapeake Bay. We Bradshaws have lived here for more than two hundred years. I love Rass Island although for much of my life I did not think I did.

During the summer of 1941, every morning McCall Purnell and I would get my small boat and go out to catch shellfish called crabs. Watermen on our island sell crabs and eat crabs. Call and I were right smart crabbers and we could always come home with a little money as well as crabs for dinner. My mother was pleased with money I made.

"My!" she said, "that was a good morning. By the time you wash , we'll be ready to eat!" I like the way she did that. replica rolex,She never said I was dirty or that I smelled bad. Just by the time you wash up.

She was a real lady my mother, she had come to teach in the island school and fell in love with my father. What my father needed more than a wife was sons. What my mother gave him was girls--twin girls! I was older than my sister by a few minutes. I always treasure the thought of those minutes. They were the only time in my life when I was the center of everyone's attention. From the moment Caroline was born, she took all the attention for herself. When my mother and grandmother told the story of our births, it was mostly of how Caroline had refused to breathe.

"But where was I?" I asked my mother. replica rolex,
"In the basket," she said, "Grandma dressed you and put you in the basket."

Caroline's true gift was her voice. Our teacher, Mr. Rice, said she should have singing lessons. I was proud of my sister, but something began to hurt me under the pride.

One day, Mama and Caroline came back to the island on a boat after Caroline’s singing lesson. There was an old man on the boat whom I'd never seen before. Our island held few secrets or surprises beyond the weather. But all the old people agreed that he was Hiram Wallace . My friend Call and I started visiting Hiram Wallace. We decided simply to call him the Captain.

The Captain stayed at our house when the big storm hit in 1942. Afterward, we took my little boat heading straight for the Captain's house. But nothing was left at the spot where the Captain's house had stood the night before. Even with his white beard the Captain looked like a little boy trying not to cry.
replica rolex,
Not long after that, the Captain married Trudy Braxton who lived on the island. She was not well and did not live long. Soon the Captain came up the path to our house, his face red with excitement. He told my mother and me that Trudy left a little money. ''There is enough for Caroline to go to boarding school in Baltimore, Maryland and continue her music.'' said the Captain.

I sat there as surprised as if he had thrown a rock in my face! ''Caroline!''

My grandmother came up close behind me. I stiffened at the sound of her hoarse whisper. ''Romans 9-13,'' she said. She repeated the saying from the Christian Bible about the competition between two brothers for their father's love. ''Jacob Have I Loved, but Esau have I hated''.

I had always believed the Captain was different. But he, like everyone else, had chosen Caroline over me.

In the autumn I left school, I spent the winter catching oysters, another kind of shellfish, with my father. That strange winter with my father on his boat was the happiest of my life. I was, for the first time, deeply satisfied with what life was giving me. Part of it was the things I discovered. Who would have believed that my father sang while catching oysters! My quiet father whose voice could hardly be heard in church sang to the oysters! It was a wonderful sound!
replica rolex,
I did not want to go back to school, so my mother taught me at home. I passed the test for graduation with the highest grades recorded from Rass Island.

The war in Europe ended in 1945. At the end of crab season Call came home from the war. The body of a large man in uniform was filling the door.
''Call,'' I cried, ''Oh my blessed Call, you have grown up!'' ''That's what the navy promised,'' he said.

Call told the Captain he had stopped to see Caroline. His face burned with happiness when he told the Captain ''She said YES to me,'' he said softly, ''I guess it is hard for you to think someone like Caroline might like me.''

I went back to the crab house. Soon after Call and Caroline were married, the Captain said to me, ''This is hard for you, isn't it? What is it you really want to do?''

I was totally empty. What was it I really wanted to do?

''Your sister knew what she wanted,'' said the Captain, ''so when the chance came she could take it. Do not tell me no one ever gave you a chance, Sara Louise. You can make your own chances. But first you have to know what you are after, my dear.''

''I would like to see the mountains,'' I said, and then my dream began to form along with the sentence, ''I might, I want to be a doctor.''

''So what is stopping you?'' the Captain asked.
replica rolex,
I realized that under all my dreams of leaving home, I was afraid to go. My mother had told me that she had chosen to leave her people and build the life for herself somewhere else. ''I certainly would not stop you from making the same choice,'' my mother said to me now, ''but all we will miss you, your father and I.''

I wanted so to believe her, ''As much as you miss Caroline?''

Father Frost

In a far-away country, somewhere in Russia, there lived a stepmother who had a stepdaughter and also a daughter of her own. Her own daughter was dear to her, and always whatever she did the mother was the first to praise her, to pet her; but there was but little praise for the stepdaughter; although good and kind, she had no other reward than reproach. What on earth could have been done? The wind blows, but stops blowing at times; the wicked woman never knows how to stop her wickedness. One bright cold day the stepmother said to her husband:
wow power leveling,
"Now, old man, I want you to take your daughter away from my eyes, away from my ears. You shall not take her to your people into a warm hut. You shall take her into the wide, wide fields to the crackling frost."

The old father grew sad, began even to weep, but nevertheless helped the young girl into the sleigh. He wished to cover her with a sheepskin in order to protect her from the cold; however, he did not do it. He was afraid; his wife was watching them out of the window. And so he went with his lovely daughter into the wide, wide fields; drove her nearly to the woods, left her there alone, and speedily drove away--he was a good man and did not care to see his daughter's death. Following continue. wow gold,

Alone, quite alone, remained the sweet girl. Broken-hearted and terror-stricken she repeated fervently all the prayers she knew.

Father Frost, the almighty sovereign at that place, clad in furs, with a long, long, white beard and a shining crown on his white head, approached nearer and nearer, looked at this beautiful guest of his and asked:

"Dost you know me?--me, the red-nosed Frost?"

"Be welcome, Father Frost," answered gently the young girl. "I hope our heavenly Lord sent you for my sinful soul."

"Are you comfortable, sweet child?" again asked the Frost. He was exceedingly pleased with her looks and mild dress,

"Indeed I am," answered the girl, almost out of breath from cold.

And the Frost, cheerful and bright, kept crackling in the branches until the air became icy, but the good-natured girl kept repeating:

"I am very comfortable, dear Father Frost."

But the Frost, however, knew all about the weakness of human beings; he knew very well that few of them are really good and kind; but he knew no one of them even could struggle too long against the power of Frost, the king of winter. The kindness of the gentle girl charmed old Frost so much that he made the decision to treat her differently from others, and gave her a large heavy trunk filled with many beautiful, beautiful things. He gave her a rich cloak lined with precious furs; he gave her silk quilts--light like feathers and warm as a mother's lap. What a rich girl she became and how many magnificent garments she received! And besides all, old Frost gave her a blue dress ornamented with silver and pearls. This site is on the Crushers:crusher。

"Here, take this pancake, eat it and say, 'The old woman's daughter will be married soon and the old man's daughter shall be buried soon.'"

The dog ate the pancake and began anew:

"Bow-wow! bow-wow! the old man's daughter is coming home wealthy and happy as never before, and the old woman's daughter is somewhere around as homely and wicked as ever before."
