Weekend post [2]

20.  Some links from Rossa’s mother:

Gates of Vienna 1

Gates of Vienna 2

The Wail

19.  If this sort of thing is coming up more often than one would expect and if it’s coming equally from men and women,then maybe there might be something to consider here:

And that url.

‘Proselytising’ is usually the sort of thing atheists accuse Christians of if even daring to refer to a verse, yet this full-on proselytising with missionary zeal is quite OK?  Think of the young people these lost children have influence with.

18.  Iron Bowl Day in Alabama – here’s your guide, should you wish to attend:

There is a major holiday between Thanksgiving and Christmas in this state, in case you didn’t already know.

The Iron Bowl is here, and the stakes couldn’t be any higher.


Alabama and Auburn will square off in Jordan-Hare Stadium on Saturday at 2:30 p.m., ultimately deciding the Crimson Tide’s fate in the College Football Playoff picture.

17.  Some takes on the jihadi:

This one live:

Richard Tice [TBP]:

Resignations must occur of those who let this terrorist out….and an immediate review of others released on licence and further potential releases. We have to stop being wet and soft on serious crime and terrorism.

Gerard Batten:

And if the bomb vest had been real it would only take one twitch of a finger to set it off. I wondered how long it would take before the criticism of the police officer would begin. I hope he gets a commendation or an award of some kind.

Our Julia:

“On this occasion the suicide vest was false – but what, actually, if it was real? What if the very acts of selfless heroism by those who took the man down actually triggered a bomb that might otherwise not have exploded?” 🙄

Yep – and it should be extended to any jihadi who even starts to try it on.

Oh, and there’s also the factor of the faux-jihadi being a Manchurian asset released from the crypt, hence he must be taken out, thinks deep state agency.

16. There’s the pilot, yes, but also the plane:

Each will take what he or she wants from that, I took the precarious nature of ultra-lights. The frame connecting cockpit and tail on the yellow plane looks very iffy to me. Plus single engine. Plus those ailerons. If my rudder linkages fail, so what? I sail by sails. If his rudder and ailerons fail … well, Ok, enough of that.

Someone pointed out that single is better, as with twin, if one conks out, the plane is unbalanced. Hmmmm, respect to those chaps and chapesses but I’m for the waves and tides.

16. The ICE story, yes. Sneaky for sure – wrong? Not so sure:


15. Some of the big names such as Huckabee and Giuliani have come out about this treachery by Chick-fil-A:

To say that a company may diversify as and how it wishes is fine as a general principle but there’s also such a thing as being true to the original story arc, as in series.

And in this case, someone appointed that clown as CEO and his agenda is pure globalist – snuff out any Christian references or hope whatever, then lie about doing it.  You snuff that out, and only fools fail to realise that their own futures are then going to be subject to the lawless.

14. If you’re looking at a combination of ugly and useless, you can’t do much better/worse than this:


13. Not very good at what they do, sleep well!


12. Piz Gloria revisited:

Speaking of heights and risky things people do, I have, in the past, been trying to make headway in 15-20 foot seas in a wind v tide situation and while not fun, it’s ok, ditto shooting off a mogul on the mountain and bobsledding – none of the aforementioned fills me with fear like going on a ferris wheel or funfair ride … or flying on a commercial airliner.

Maybe it’s something to do with trust. In the youtube above, I don’t like even the centre of the platform where the helipad was but when it went down the ‘James Bond walk’, that was freaky. Put me on a boat leaning over and facing seas and Cap’n Higham will do many an Ahab. Ask him to walk down that path though with that gravel – yikes!

And as for stealing Diana Rigg – shame!

11. Dear reader, it may be that you don’t like this format. I have to do it because the weekend is so dislocated for me as a rule, things happening in RL.

Just noticed this by ‘Sean’ on Twitter:

A KNOWN Islamic Extremist with terror group connections, released from prison with a TAG??!!! I give up 😑

Glad people are starting to see this now, that this really is deep state collusion, that there really is a policy of unsettling ordinary people via some vehicle.

[H/T as usual to Chuckles, haiku and others named as and when]

    I am glad that this terrorist is dead.

    I support the death penalty for terrorism; I don’t like paying taxes to keep terrorists alive in prison.

    This is the first I’ve heard that the terrorist was released early from prison for similar offences. Not displeased that he received summary justice, just angry that this can happen.

    13. Does anyone actually believe that there are not powers in this world who are thinking how to reduce the human population? It’s a topic which has been addressed openly for decades. One child policy in China, forced sterilisation in India, the starving of Ukrainians, the pointless wars. Surely, if we are all mad our end is nigh.

    James, I enjoy this format, neither more nor less than the longer pieces. It’s rather reminiscent of Remus, which an unmissable read. Aspects of our RLs will always conflict; shopping or housework, boat or blog?

    Apparently no one decided to release him early – it’s automatic, the law of the land. The Appeal Court, however, should hang its head in shame – if it had left the original sentence alone then the question of automatic early release would not have arisen.

    Unless, of course, its decision was not a matter of judgement but was also a matter of law. In which case blame Parliament and the idiot electorate which returns the MPs.

      “the idiot electorate”. That reminds me of Python’s Dead Bishop sketch. “Society is to blame”, “That’s alright, we’ll be nicking them too”.

    Cheers, both.
