Weekend open thread

I hope that everyone is enjoying what papers are now dubbing an ‘Indian’ autumn. I was gently and jokily admonished in an e-mail today by a Mr. Rumbold. He complained that because I wrote under the name ‘Rumbold’, and did not distinguish myself from other Rumbolds (by use of an initial), this risked giving them a bad name. For that, I apologise, and would just like to point out that ‘Rumbold’ is a pseudonym. I hope that will stop gangs of Rumbolds from tracking me down.

Have a nice weekend.

    I always thought that Rumbold was your name!

    Oh, and the global cooling seems to have kicked in tonight.

    Ah, but are you the *real* Rumbold, or his Evil Twin…?

    I’ve finally concluded that’s the only rational explanation for some of the inconsistencies in your posting lately…hmmm??

    :-)

    It is unfortunate but i am progressively turning into the type of teeth-knashing person i used to laugh at; the only positive aspect of it all is that im shaking my fist at the government.

    CPS lunacy

    MaidMarian:

    I, on the other hand, suspect that is not your real name.

    Andy:

    Maybe I am evil Rumbold. Or maybe I have replaced him.

    Duh duh durrr

    Apropos nothing much at all.

    There was a thread here a while ago that mentioned Mary Seacole. Her Wikipedia entry mentioned that she’d written an autobiography and, much to my surprise Amazon had it in print. It’s title is:

    “The Wonderful Adventures of Mrs Seacole in many Lands”

    I’m a sucker for books with titles like that. It is a fascinating description of what a woman with grit and determination could accomplish even way back then. She travelled to Panama and to the Crimea. Her tales of derring do amongst the Yukon gold rush folk are pretty amazing. But her description of the siege of Sebastapol, seen almost as an entertainment at times and then with brutally frank close ups was the highlight of the book for me.

    Recommended.

    Rumbold – You saw through me. Real name: Duncan.

    Rather less dashing.
