In awe, I watched the waxing moon ride across the zenith of the heavens like an ambered chariot towards the ebony void of infinite space wherein the tethered belts of Jupiter and Mars hang, forever festooned in their orbital majesty. And as I looked at all this I thought I must put a roof on this toilet.

Resisting temptation is easier when you think you'll probably get another chance later on.

(it took less than three minutes to deliver):

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.

But, in a larger sense, we can not dedicate—we can not consecrate—we can not hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart... Enjoy life with your wife, whom you love, all the days of this... life that God has given you. For this is your lot in life.

Clean shirt, new shoes
And I don't know where I am goin' to
Silk suit, black tie,
I don't need a reason why
They come runnin' just as fast as they can
'Cause every girl crazy 'bout a sharp dressed man

Oh, thou art fairer than the evening air
Clad in the beauty of a thousand stars;
Brighter art thou than flaming Jupiter
When he appear’d to hapless Semele:
More lovely than the monarch of the sky
In wanton Arethusa’s azured arms:
And none but thou shalt be my paramour.

"Know your enemy and know yourself and you will always be victorious."
Sun-tzu

You should always keep the person, who always criticizes you, near you.
Since his/her job is to criticize you, they will point out every minute flaws inside you.
This way, you can improve yourself and you become more clean and pure, than you would with soap and water.

And I guess Farage is "not laughing now", that I see the UKIP is losing its last MP.

It appears that the root of this play on words is much older and from 1907 with a few more examples that predate the post card.

Still, very interesting that many of his post cards were banned in 1950s UK.

McGill was by accounts a rather well educated and straight laced person. A bit like me. He lived a couple of miles from here too. Most of the jests are not original but where he got them back in the day I can only surmise.

Some of his postcards http://saucyseasidepostcards.com/product/24-x-mixed-postcards/ were the subject of the obscenity trial in 1954.

Philip Larkin observed that "sexual intercourse began in 1963" and by the mid 60s when I was a child McGill postcards were a much loved British seaside tradition. They are still widely available. Unfortunately for McGill and his family he didn't retain the copyright in the images and others have reaped the benefit of his genius.

I am noted for saying it. I recently looked at my thesis for the first time in more than 30 years when I was at my mother's house. The front page contained the very words.

My father used, apropos Dave, used to tell of the time he was walking down Alberrt Rd Devonport which was and is somewhat rougher than Cheyne Walk London to hear a woman scold a man with the words "Don't 'ee say 'bugger' in front of the C. H. I. L. D."

First they came for the Communists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Communist
Then they came for the Socialists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Socialist
Then they came for the trade unionists
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a trade unionist
Then they came for the Jews
And I did not speak out
Because I was not a Jew
Then they came for me

Somewhere there's a harbour
Though we pass her by
Where our ship can be and safely lie
In the warmth of her arms
Inside a perfect day

And with each passing moment
We wait to sail away.

The Parish Theatre Group are delighted to announce that their own leading lady, Miss Belle Elmore, will be marrying her stage and real life beau Mr Eric Le Neve in the church on Saturday 12 July at 11am. That means that the Matinee show on 12 July has been cancelled. Miss Elmore and Mr Le Neve are looking forward to the usual performance on the night of 12 July.

I took a "joke" test years ago on which one of the questions was, "Explain the nature of reality. Give arguments both for and against your position". Other questions asked about being able to assemble an assault rifle, and also performing a flute and drum concerto.

I hope I still have a copy. It was hilarious.

One of the gentlemen here at work is retiring today. He'd sent this out and I thought it was worthy of sharing.

The Mayonnaise jar and 2 Cups of Coffee

When things in your life seem almost too much to handle, when 24 hours in a day are not enough, remember the mayonnaise jar and the 2 cups of coffee.

A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. The agreed that it was.

The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and pored them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full. The students responded with a unanimous “yes”.

The professor then produced two cups of coffee from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand. The students laughed.

“Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided. “I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things – God, your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions – and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full.

The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house, and your car.

The sand is everything else – the small stuff. “If you put the sand into the jar first” he continued, “there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life. If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

“Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness. Play with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take time to get medical checkups. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18 holes of golf. There will always be time to clean the house and fix the disposal. Take care of the golf balls first – the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the coffee represented. The professor smiled and said, “I’m glad you asked”.

The coffee just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of cups of coffee with a friend.


Cheers

Eric Morecamble replied "Be Mike and Bernie Winters."

"Pick the bones out of that one."

Van Zimmermann's recent and magnificent discovery reminds me of a story Dave Brown, one of my old chemistry tutors, once told. Dave was a humourist and it got him into trouble on at least one occasion.

He was lecturing on DNA on another occasion. Dave explained that DNA had first been isolated by Friedrich Miescher from pus soaked bandages from the Crimean War. This is generally regarded as true.

Dave asserted that Miescher on occasion would return to his lab with an armful of bandages and say to his assistant "...entfernen Sie die Knochen von diesem..." "Pick the bones out of that one."

To this day I don't know if Dave just made that up as jest or if it was true.

I know two things however.

First to be caught out questioning an unlikely but in fact true story or accepting a likely but untrue story (don't even get me started on likely and true) back in those days exposed one to the risk of significant humiliation.

And secondly in at least British English "Pick the bones out of that one" could easily be Van Zimmermann's opening gambit among prime hunters.

Do you ever get that when you're half way through eating a horse and you think to yourself, 'I'm not as hungry as I thought I was'

This white top writeth myne olde yeris;
Myn herte is mowled also as myne heris —
But if I fare as dooth an open-ers.
That ilke fruyt is ever lenger the wers,
Til it be roten in mullok or in stree.
We olde men, I drede, so fare we:
Til we be roten, kan we nat be rype;

The Prologe of the Reve's Tale by Chaucer

I thought of it as Erin and I with our white hair today pretty much followed Chaucer's footsteps by travelling from South London through Kent not far from the Pilgrims' Way down which the Reeve would have travelled and then bought some medlar fruit which the Reve calls open-ers. That is not translatable into polite modern English but is not the least impolite of the nicknames given to it. Shakespeare makes a number of puns on the name.

I do love them but they are not easy to find these days.

They are like small apples but the end where the flower was is much wider than in an apple; hence the open-ers. When picked the fruit is white inside again hence Chaucer's but totally inedible. They are allowed to rot and the flesh turns brown, soft and very sweet. Back in the old days it was about the only fruit which would have been available in the winter.

I have and I must say I enjoy it. Not ideal to eat on the train tho'.

Unlike a durian a medlar looks rotten but smells and tastes sweet. Also they don't grow them on the North Downs.

I had Durian in Singapore. It was fresh and tasted kinda sweet. But the smell was a rotten smell. To me it smells like the the chemical they put in natural gas so your nose can detect it.

Some an army of horsemen, some an army on foot
And some say a fleet of ships is the loveliest sight on this dark earth
But I say it is whatever you desire
And it is perfectly possible to make this clear to all
For Helen, the woman who by far surpassed all others in her beauty,
Left her husband
The best of men behind
And sailed far away to Troy
She did not spare a single thought for her child
Nor for her dear parents
But the goddess of love led her astray
To desire

According to recent studies, the poem is probably a bit longer and goes on something like this:

this makes me think of Anaktoria, who left us.
I'd rather see her elegant gait

You and Erin. She is forever saying "I can't believe you just..." But then she has a strange way of starting a conversation; "You haven't listened to a <expletive deleted> word I've said for the last 5 minutes."

I wasn't aware of the newly found lines. I know I took liberties in the way I set it out but I do rather like the old ending. That might be familiarity or the way it suddenly stops a bit like the way the Odyssey suddenly starts.

Like most people I have areas of unexpected knowledge and in my case very much larger ones of ignorance. Erin and I were brought up on Shakespeare, the King James Bible and The Book of Common Prayer and without thinking of it will quote to each other. She has a tendency to spout the doggerel of Kipling and has a blind spot for the wonders of Marlowe (although she did agree to our children's names having Marlowe references.)

My father who sometimes didn't let truth get in the way of a good story asserted that there was a 40/50s movie set out in the central US about the US army training. The artillery ranged a mortar on a derelict building. It was an outhouse. They cut to grampa struggling out with his dungarees around his knees saying "Gee ma. It musta bin somethin I et."

I almost don't believe that story but I have it on good authority that in WW2 US forces intended to blow up with artillery an old barn. The old barn was https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chapel_of_St_Peter-on-the-Wall

Was browsing around and found an article about London's plan to combat the rising sea level. They were going to use gates to block the Thames. Makes one wonder just how long the gates will hold.

I shall have to be careful how I type this but ask King Cnut. (By way of aside he was misunderstood rather than misspelled; his point was to attempt to show that he was not all powerful.)

We have had a barrier across the Thames for more than 30 years https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thames_Barrier. In the first 5 years it was used 3 times. In the last 5 years 59 times.

By way of further aside the rising sea levels hereabouts are not mainly due to ice cap melting. The last ice age ended pretty much in my garden. Gary saw that when he was over. Our soil is clay which is debris from the nose of glaciers. We took the dog out for walk and the soil was chalk where the glaciers did not reach. Following the melting of the glaciers the tectonic plate in the north is rising since the weight of the ice is gone but that means in the south the plate is sinking hence the apparent rise in sea level here.

Who would true valour see,
Let him come hither;
One here will constant be,
Come wind, come weather
There’s no discouragement
Shall make him once relent
His first avowed intent
To be a vermin.

Oddly enough, my mother spent much of her childhood under the mistaken impression that the last line of this hymn that was often sung in church was "To be a piglet". Or so she says!

I thought the last lines of the first verse of "Onward Christian Soldiers" were

"... leads against the foe;
Forward into battle,
See his bladder flow!"

"I wander thro' each charter'd street,
Near where the charter'd Thames does flow.
And mark in every face I meet
Marks of weakness, marks of woe."

William Blake

When I was a lad I often had the chance to look round Devonport Naval Base. One of the dockyard queens was HMS Blake which was laid down in 1942. It was commissioned in 1961 and then laid up in 1965 until 1969 withdrawn in 1979 and finally towed away to be scrapped in 1982. So HMS Blake was often around. As a child I thought it very odd that a cruiser would be named after a poet. It wasn't until much later that I found it was actually named after a 17th century admiral.

I imagine it will be more effective than a high fibre diet in keeping his bowels astonishingly regular.

The steam is almost certainly a reference to High Test Peroxide https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-test_peroxide

I was reading today, as one does, a government report about an incident where an old wall fell on to a railway line. In railway terms the "up line" line is usually that which leads towards London and the "down line" that which leads away.

The report https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/663416/R172017_171130_Liverpool.pdf says at para 6

"All lines have a maximum speed limit of 30mph (48km/h) except the up slow line line for which the limit is 40mph (64km/h)."

"Go thy way, eat thy bread with joy, and drink thy wine with a merry heart...

Let thy garments be always white; and let thy head lack no ointment.

Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity...

Whatsoever thy hand findeth to do, do it with thy might; for there is no work, nor device, nor knowledge, nor wisdom, in the grave, whither thou goest."

Maybe I'm missing a pun here (which would not be the first time), but the verb "futo" (futare, futere?) doesn't ring a bell. With much trepidation about correcting your Lordship, and with some fear of making an idiot of myself, I think Vespasianus actually said:

Vae, puto deus fio.

You have me bang to rights, guv. You really do. A small sherry stands to your credit.

I've lived and worked in London for most of my life. When I started one or two of the old men would transpose "v" and "w" sounds just like in Dickens. I know I sometimes use in social conversation words which people commonly used when I was young and I thought were usual and yet some people look at me in surprise and lack of comprehension. Conversely I was reading
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multicultural_London_English . I knew 8 of the expressions and a couple are the London of my day. It is fascinating to see how language changes.

That was a part of the reason for the original post. That and it is just funny and clever.

Ah...one of my favorites! As I recall, Thomas wrote it to his father as the latter was on his deathbed.

...and for one of the stranger, but oddly funnier readings of this poem, I refer you to Rodney Dangerfield's lines as Thornton Melon in the fairly average movie "Back to School".

It is a great work of literature.

I mentioned it because Erin was going out to pick up a Chinese meal in foul weather late last weel. I quoted the first three lines at her and she quoted the next 3 back to me and thus we went on.

We then debated the meaning behind the poem. I said as you that it was poem about death. She pointed out that Thomas' father did not die until 1952 and the poem was written in 1947. She opined that it was about Thomas' father's blindness.

It was fun to share the poem and the debate.

I shall look up "Back to School".

We then debated the meaning behind the poem. I said as you that it was poem about death. She pointed out that Thomas' father did not die until 1952 and the poem was written in 1947. She opined that it was about Thomas' father's blindness.


The confusion may come from the fact that, although written in 1947, it was not published until 1951/1952.

In any case, nothing quite compares to the poet reading the verse himself (from a BBC broadcast).

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to Heaven, we were all going direct the other way – in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only.

Here I found the whole poem.

Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on the sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Ah...you reminded me of a really fun book entitled The Tao of Pooh. It is fairly short, and in my opinion at least, a recommended read.

Where the hay upon the meadow gives a fragrance to the air;
Where the cow and calf are browsing 'neath the trees;
In the golden glow of evening I would greet the maiden fair,
As she sits among the cabbages and peas.

Is that the Dr Kalam who was president or PM of India? He was a scientist before he became a politician as I recall. I don't know a great deal about him but he sounded like a good man.

I wonder if that is derived from Teddy Roosevelt's "Speak softly. And carry a big stick."

I can't say I followed that all my life as a lawyer but I like the idea.

What are the roots that clutch, what branches grow
Out of this stony rubbish? Son of man,
You cannot say, or guess, for you know only
A heap of broken images, where the sun beats,
And the dead tree gives no shelter, the cricket no relief,
And the dry stone no sound of water. Only
There is shadow under this red rock,

I don't really know how they formed the quote. But I guess the game makers were inspired by Teddy Roosevelt. That's a possibility.

Rather earlier than that Dave. It is from 1985 and part of a song called The Whole of the Moon by The Waterboys.

By 1985 my old Professor and I were chasing different dreams although still in regular contact but that section of the piece then and now reminds me of the best scientist who never won a Nobel Prize (I know or knew a couple) I ever met. As well as being a superb scientist and teacher he was a good pal to me and we'd talk of chemistry, birds, badgers and life.

Great man.

"I don't do a lot of public speaking, so I looked up a memorable quote to start my speech, and this is what I found. OK, you're staring at me blankly, but this whole thing is a quote. I know that sounds confusing, but... You know what, never mind!"

J'ai rencontré dans la rue un jeune homme très pauvre qui aimait. Son chapeau était vieux, son habit était usé; il avait les coudes troués; l'eau passait à travers ses souliers et les astres à travers son âme.

April is the cruellest month, breeding
Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing
Memory and desire, stirring
Dull roots with spring rain.

“What day is the day that we know that we hope for or fear for? Every day is the day we should fear from or hope from. One moment weighs like another. Only in retrospection, selection, We say, that was the day. The critical moment. That is always now, and here.”
