Christmas In England. Part deux, December 13, 2014

Much better, thank you!
I woke up this morning to dry floors, lit bathing facilites, and a ceiling light that stayed off!
I had a buffet breakfast that included rashers of bacon—including back bacon A.K.A. Canadian bacon—spotted Dick, Cumbrian sausage, stewed tomatoes, grilled mushrooms, cooked egg, and fried bread, and some really good [probably Turkish] brewed coffee.
Then I drove seven minutes to this place, in Didsbury [sounds a bit like Budleigh Babberton, don't it?], south of Manchester.
A thoroughly pleasant staff and clientele. I watched Middlesborough take apart Derby County in an English football match, then highlights of England and Sril Lanka's sixth ODI and of the first Test Day 5 and of Australia v India at Adelaide.

Now I'm having an alcoholic ginger beer in the Resident's Lounge at the Britannia Country Hotel.

Life is . . .  sweet!

Tomorrow I meet the organizers of the TAG Manchester session that I'll be discussing on Tuesday. Can. Hardly. Wait.



  1. Great writing and nice article name.I appreciate your writing.Christmas Part Deux" is from the "Plane!" swarm ought to promptly identify that the entire thing is a reason to be senseless. Furthermore they do simply that. For the most part caricaturing the "Rambo" motion pictures - additionally different flicks and even George H.w. Shrub barfing on Japan's PM - they play everything for all that its value. Alright, so perhaps this is low cleverness, yet at the same time, there isn't a dull minute anyplace in the film. It's unimaginable not to like.Best wishes!

  2. From other thread

    "but it would be a great encouragement if I didn't feel—constantly—as if I was fighting a futile rear-guard action, with no hope of reinforcement"

    Sounds to me like the two sides are 1) political vs 2) data only because we disagree with the politics but don't want to get into trouble, in which case the surface conflict is not the same as the underlying conflict and the underlying problem is the over dominance of the political faction. In which case a compromise won't work only the undermining of the political faction.

    Cultural guerrilla warfare can be fun if you turn it into a game.
