Re: BOB'S BITS

A physician without a knowledge of astrology has no right to call himself a physician. Hippocrates. 17th-century book production methods often left, in bound copies, notices for other items the printer had for sale, so that while I pretty exclusively read tracts on theology and exploration, I was co...

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

I walked up Ellis Street this morning and found that we had two charging points for electric cars! I had no idea we had progressed so far.

Re: WHAT ATTRACTED YOUR ATTENTION TODAY?

I'm fed up with saying this China but one last time in case you are actually listening. 5.2 million informed and voluntary opinions. 17 million uninformed, in fact lied to voters presented with a binary choice and operating solely on gut instinct. I choose the former.

Re: BOB'S BITS

I believe that Whittington's reconstruction of Opabinia in 1975 will stand as one of the great documents in the history of human knowledge. Stephen Jay Gould, 1989. The Latinate names of species (living and extinct) can derive from their discoverer’s name, from comparisons with others of their genus...

Re: WHAT DID WE HAVE FOR TEA?

Steak pudding and peas for dinner, small pork pie and peas for tea.... Not very imaginative I know but it suited the day.... I have a nice piece of braising steak so a bit of cooking is indicated!

In my tramping days there were two big transport cafes in Ingleton next to each other. the Three Peaks and Mrs Walker's Sunset cafe. I always used the Sunset for some reason and if I was on my way down from Scotland very late at night, penniless after a long week, I could call in there and get a mea...

Dead right David, then the Tories can have a real cat fight! It looks as though the 'talks' at Chequers resulted in agreement that nobody wanted May's job at the moment and ditching her now would be a mistake. They are leaving it until later.... Handy to have someone to blame for everything. (I'll b...

The poll stands at over 5.2 million this morning. It may be only an indication but it's a hell of a big one. Could China be advising us that Brexit is the best option?

That would fit P. The main driver for all this is fear. The Tories can see what is coming, a General Election, perhaps sooner rather than later and what do they pitch to their constituents? The bottom line is that they have blown it and everything from mow on is aimed at limiting the damage.... On a...
