"One class of song was that of prayers to the gods, which bore the name of hymns (hymnai); contrasted with this was another class, best called ‘dirges’; ‘paeans’ formed another; and yet another was the ‘dithyramb’, named, I fancy, after Dionysos."

The threat described is real. This type of attack, known as Ransomware, has increased significantly over the last year or so. Some versions simply encrypt files on the infected computer and demand payment to unlock them. However, other, more sinister, variants not only lock down files, but also threaten to send an unlocking password to police that will supposedly reveal incriminating child pornography on the infected computer if victims do not pay.
Child Porn Ransomware Warning
Circulating message warns users about a type of virus that locks files on the infected computer and threatens to inform the police that the victim has been downloading child porn if he or she does not pay a fee to have incriminating files removed.

As the days grow shorter and autumn turns to winter, cold winds, the breath of the Cailleach Bheaur the blue hag of winter, scour the land. In Scottish folklore the Cailleach arises every Samhian and is responsible for bringing cold, snow and treacherous weather before turning to stone every Imbolc. The Cailleach, whose name simply means â€˜older wise womanâ€™ in Gaelic, is both feared and respected in British and Irish folklore. She is intimately connected to witches in their old role of midwives and layers out of the dead, and is likely to be a folk memory of an initiator goddess.
On the Isle of Man she is the Cailleach ny Groamagh â€˜the old gloomy womanâ€™
Cailleach – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The goddess of eternal youth, married to Bragi, the god of poetry. Idun is the custodian of the golden apples of youth. When the gods feel old age approaching, they only have to eat of the apples to become young again. As a goddess of fertility, youth and death, it is possible that she was originally one of the Vanir.
Idun was once abducted by the storm giant Thiazi and in this interval the gods began to age rapidly. She was eventually rescued by Loki who changed her into a nut and brought her back to her hall. The gods were restored to youth soon after.
IÃ°unn – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

IÃ°unn is attested in the Poetic Edda, compiled in the 13th century from earlier traditional sources, and the Prose Edda, written in the 13th century by Snorri Sturluson.

Full Worm Moon (March)
At the time of this spring Moon, the ground begins to soften and earthworm casts reappear, inviting the return of robins. This is also known as the Sap Moon, as it marks the time when maple sap begins to flow and the annual tapping of maple trees begins.
As the temperature begins to warm and the ground begins to thaw, earthworm casts appear, heralding the return of the robins. The more northern tribes knew this Moon as the Full Crow Moon, when the cawing of crows signaled the end of winter; or the Full Crust Moon, because the snow cover becomes crusted from thawing by day and freezing at night. The Full Sap Moon, marking the time of tapping maple trees, is another variation. To the settlers, it was also known as the Lenten Moon, and was considered to be the last full Moon of winter.
