Well, the other day I (finally) picked up am Absolutely Fabulous video from a workmate and spotted Joanna Lumley on the cover (not surprisingly). This always conjures up memories of Purdey and The New Avengers.
Which immediately links into Latin hymns being sung at school in Portsmouth Cathedral in the late 70s. Obviously you would have had to be there... so here it is for those who weren't:
1. personent hodie
qui nobis est natus,
summo Deo datus,
et de virgineo ventre procreatus.
2. in mundo nascitur,
Purdey's tit spolia princeps infernorum.
3. magi tres venerunt,
aurum, thus, et myrrham ei offerendo.
4. omnes clericuli,
cantent ut angeli:
laudes tibi fundo.
ideo gloria in excelsis Deo.

Another StupidO'Clock trip from Heathrow - this time to sunny Munich to talk MSMQ to Munich Re (very nice people - free lunches!). Had to get up at 4:10am to get to the customer for noon so I was sitting on the 7am plane watching the sun slowly coming up thinking "what on Earth am I doing at this time in the morning?"
Having a digital camera on a plane has made me a great collector of nephograms (that's photographs of clouds to you and me). The purity of the image is something that is so hard to catch on the ground. It is so easy to take a photo of trees in the woods, for example, and afterwards see a coke can you hadn't noticed before. At 35,000 feet you just get the clouds - even if the land would be visible through a gap, it's too hazy to distract from the overall beauty.

It's that time again. Dave Jones has gone. His time ran out - the results never came. The board has been able to hide their incompetence behind the sacking of the manager. Ah well, another 3-4 years of new management.
