The Thing

From a marker by a Swedish burial mound:
The Thing took place at Anundshög all through the Middle Ages.  This was a meting point for the local inhabitants.  The Thing settled legal disputes, e.g., concerning the ownership of land. or other property, and it sentenced criminals.  During the 1450s the Thing was moved to Badelunda Church, one kilometre further north.
Elevator music in a Stockholm hotel:
She had a dream 'bout the King o' Sweden
'Cos he had a Thing that she be needin.'
Up to now, the only Thing on my radar  was the giant carrot from outer space.
