Monday [16 till close of play]

(1730) Evening all.

22.  Quite cream-crackered though much happening

One of IYE’s went up at n21, others tomorrow morn, almost falling asleep here. There’s a long Ripper account which is probably best at our first break in the a.m., plus I see Evets is dropping his off. Hope Andy’s not mad with me, Ian was here earlier.

My main topic in this item is to correct an impression. You know the things quite a few have said, including me, about a delivery firm who are evriwhere … well a few days back, I recounted this lady’s encounter with me (pillow slips) … it was instant goodwill both ways.

Well blow me down with a goose down feather if there was not a buzzer buzz … there was … and there she was again with this coming Friday’s parcel.  Now look … I don’t know what’s going on here but she’s not even with this second continental firm … yet she had the massive pillow (32” x 32”) in her li’l hands and now it’s on the bed ready and I’m almost for bed, last orders please.

There was no way I could let it go without saying to you patrons and drop-bys that they were as fast as Hermes the winged messenger, plus something else is going on, something good I don’t quite understand but goodness me, I’m not complaining.

Night night folks.

21.  IYE

20.  On other matters

19.  If I opened St George's Day 2024 at N.O.

... or England's national day, ignoring the St Edmund advocates and all the rest of it for just one day ... with a small photo in the sidebar, rest assured there's more coming.

One element which I thought I might look at now is the various versions of Jerusalem on youtube, from the lady and choir, in great reverence, to the folk bard ... but to my mind, Blake was mad, eccentric maybe, and the English tribes are also eccentric, just as all women are a teensy-weensy bit insane, just as we men are all a teensy-weensy bit brusque and obdurate.

Now really, dear reader ... there's only one version will do the job on Jerusalem, is worthy of Blake ... and that's ELP's. Frankly, it's manic in its treatment, the drumming is out of its head ... what better to convey the whole preposterous notion, that deep, ancient desire?

Tomorrow morning I'll return to the more accessible treatment of the special day, quoting Steve.

But for now:

18.  Some more

17.  IYE at NOWP
