    One time there were 701 clusters of black grapes.

    May the Lord be with you as He is with me.

    Willem-Alexander, king of the Netherlands, was a commercial airline pilot for KLM Cityhopper as a first officer (co-pilot) even after assuming the throne! He kept the job for several more years because of his love of flying and a monthly escape from his royal duties. He’s rated on the Fokker 70 and the Boeing 737. His royal airplane is also a 737, which he often flies himself.

    Now RBION really is extracting the urine

    Why not Hampton Court Palace, The Broad Walk, London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, London, Greater London, KT8 9BZ (I was born just down the road), England, Great Britain, United Kingdom, British Isles, (geographically) Europe, Northern Hemisphere, Earth, Solar system, Milky Way, Cosmos, Universe…

    Non of the above is in any particular order… It’s only to prove the point that there’s only one Hampton Court… We don’t need to be told that it’s in London (Greater London, if you want to be more accurate), or even that London’s in England…

    Getting your Hampton Court really hurts. (During the first few days of BBC Radio 1 DJ Tony Blackburn had some guy on a ’phone-in mention this and it took Tony several seconds before he realised what the guy had said by which time it was too late).

    Is anyone else aware of the notable absence of a certain JohnShirley1… Seems like many of his comments have been suppressed too… Is it too soon to offer up an expression of our gratitude to the powers that be?

    There’s a county road that branches off southward from US 40 in Mount Meridian, Indiana. Remarkably, a field with the self-same topography is visible from 40, and when sowed in wheat at it’s lush greenest in the spring, the field presents the spitting image of Microsoft’s “Bliss” wallpaper / screen saver.

    Was the infestation accidental, or done on purpose?

    What an oddly synergistic happenstance. Bliss wasn’t bliss, but a picture of loss and suffering. Just like XP was for millions of people.

    I’m sure the creators of Windoze didn’t intend that as a commentary on their OS…oh, the irony, especially since XP was probably the best of the whole bad lot…

    That background may be Bliss, but if the grapes survived and became wine, it would’ve been more blissful.
