Dear Wen: Superstitions…

Dear Wen,

Understanding, for some, has been around for millenia…

But is ‘standing under ‘ a concept the same thing as having a concept ‘hanging over you’ ? Or is that merely superstition?

Sheep really shouldn’t be behaving in that way, not only are they stalking prey, they have taken up the battle position known in military circles as the ‘arrow-head’ phalanx.

This particular pattern was first used by the Athenians at Marathon when they withstood Xerxes and his Persian armies long enough to save their city state, or was that the Spartans at Thermopylae? And what precisely is a ‘heated pylon’ and how in those hoary old days were they heating them? By hot-spring, presumably…

The state of our own cities is much less secure and seems destined to finally ‘crumble’ or ‘putter-out’ under the combined force of home-workers and mask-wearers.

Which would mean that Mister Wells was sort of right, but was also sort of wrong too.

Perhaps the crystal ball he was using was occluded?

All this talk of ‘greeks bearing gifts’ or otherwise reminds me that in those days bearers of bad news were instantly put to death.

In the current crisis we would have lost the whole of the BBC’s news staff in the space of a week.

Troy Towns, then, are actually ‘Three-Towns’ – Voila!

There should be a stone at the start, and a stone in the middle. But that is only two stones, you cry! The stone at the start is ‘two stones’ because you have to get back out from the middle, or to put it another way, the start and end stone are the same.

Makes perfect sense.

There is a Treeton in Rotherham which may or may not suggest the existence of a maze at some point in time, we will have to investigate, but what is ‘a point in time’, who fashioned them, and are they also heated?

Sounds like more Antiquitech to me…

Which is not a tetchy old person, no, not at all…

I have removed the ‘evil em’ from Kith ‘n’ Kin which now reads a lot better.

All that remains is to let the dog out.

The Dusky Daft-One is more than capable of hoovering up everything that crosses his path.


Love, Don x
