  • In Norway, there is an old fable about the Tomten, a small creature, a type of nisse, that guards the farm at night when the hungry fox (often called Reynard), comes around looking for something to eat.

    He doesnt fight or scare the fox, he makes a deal with it - if the fox promises to not eat any chickens, the Tomten will make a bowl of warm porridge for him when he's hungry.

    I still have the book I was given, when I was born in 1964, with this story. Its one of my most precious possessions.

    The moral - put someting else out that is easier for the fox to get to than the chickens - I suggest beer or ravioli....
