Trousers – belted or braced – could not be trusted in Plato’s day! With only Christ – hours away from the final reckoning – will all wearers of corrupted trousers be punished by those who labour to harvest the atoms of trumpets!
There was, until a year ago, a little and very grimy-looking shop near Seven Dials, over which, in weather-worn yellow lettering, the name of “C. Cave, Naturalist and Dealer in Antiquities,” was inscribed. The contents of its window were curiously variegated. They comprised some elephant tusks and an imperfect set of chessmen, beads and weapons, a box of eyes, two skulls of tigers and one human, several moth-eaten stuffed monkeys (one holding a lamp), an old-fashioned cabinet, a flyblown ostrich egg or so, some fishing-tackle, and an extraordinarily dirty, empty glass fish-tank. There was also, at the moment the story begins, a mass of crystal, worked into the shape of an egg and brilliantly polished. And at that two people, who stood outside the window, were looking, one of them a tall, thin clergyman, the other a black-bearded young man of dusky complexion and unobtrusive costume. The dusky young man spoke with eager gesticulation, and seemed anxious for his companion to purchase the article.
We met Mr John Hawks (who owns Toby the dog) who personally introduced my daughter – Mei-An to a computer screen and keyboard featuring a Minecraft programme relating to the exhibition! Mei-An skilfully navigated the challenges and completed all the tasks without a hitch and with John Hawks watching! All very impressive! We were also pleased to meet other Chinese people visiting amongst the multicultural crowd! Please enjoy the following photographs and happy learning!
Anyone who interacted, stroked, played with or threw a stick for ‘Toby’ – the resident sheepdog – was presented with a beautiful postcard of this well-behaved and genteel Sheepdog! He appears to be the pet of resident archaeologist – Mr John Hawks – the Curator of Chapter House, as he was the person who presented the postcard and seemed to know ‘Toby’ the best! Mr John Hawks has been featured in a number of articles about this very important ‘dig’ which has received a boost recently with the Priory ‘arched’ wooden gate being added to the already amply exhibition! There is much to see – such as the UK’s oldest Parliament and Lord Nelson’s Chest!
The Soviet System (like China) works to interface Socialist (Marxist-Leninist) ideology with religious understanding. When the Boxer Muhammed Ali visited the USSR in 1978 he said that religious freedom was protected and thriving! He said he roamed freely and visited Churches, Mosques, Temples and Synagogues – the Holy places the West said did not exist! I am a Commissar for Interfacing Religious Belief with Socialism (CPC) – which means that in a future World Wars against fascism I must carry the Red Flag and advance into combat leading Regiments of religiously-minded volunteers! My function being explaining the reasons and lifting the load through proper Marxist-Leninist education that is relevant to the individuals concerned! Anyway, my Comrades jokingly state that as I will be at leading from the front – I will not be fulfilling this role for very long!
Due to Russia’s military action of ‘De-Nazify’ Western Ukraine – we were told NOT to attend! The question is ‘why’? On May 1st, during the May Day March through London – Soviet Red Flags were seen flying (carried by all kinds of British people) and their was a general air of dismissing the Tory-led and BBC empowered pro-Neo-Nazi message currently being perpetuated by the British State! My Grandfathers (who fought during WWII in France, Germany, the North Atlantic and Hong Kong) would have been disgusted to see a Britain they fought for kow-towing to a Tory right-wing government and a corrupt British Establishment! My family would have attended the Soviet War Memoria and ‘stood’ in Solidarity and pride with our Russian Comrades!
