King Eric of Norway, Denmark and Sweden became a pirate.
He got tired of trying to control his unruly barons so took to
the sea to do a bit of private plundering.

Sometimes, freedom can only be found on the open sea.

Great to see you back on the web, Penny.  I think of you every

Real piquancy.  It's good for the taste buds.
