The INCOMPLETE map. This is unacceptable. FIX IT. Even at maximum permitted zoom out it does NOT show the Southern Hemisphere. That is NOT cricket. This, from Glasgow, is piss poor even by their standards. This map is appalling. FIX this map! Use link below IF you have a strange urge to access this stupid map.

Wow. In Glasgow. I am very fond of Glasgow. It was the setting of the largest presentation I have ever done — to date. 900 people. UK CMG. Keynote speaker. c. 1990 I think.

I never heard of her, BUT she is British and
therefore I have to give her a plug.

She seems pretty cool. Not bad looking either. Very British looking.

His other VINE VOICE reviews.



He has reviewed some of my other Pope books and given me ‘good’ reviews.

His reviews I value. 4-Stars by him means a lot and this made my day.

He knows his history and popes. Check his other reviews.

When he says Full of Facts — that says volumes. It is NOT easy to impress him.

It is, however, this sentence which to me is MOST gratifying:

“And there are much data which you will find no place other than the author’s books.” 

BINGO!

Sharing this unique information is what I strive for. That is why I struggle with the English daily and quietly tolerate all the brickbats I get from folks about my typos and English. [I rationalize it internally with: ‘those that can, write. Those that cannot, criticize‘.]

He said THIS about my ‘Popes and the Tales of Their Names‘ book:

Well this was nice affirmation and the book that I am now working
on will ADD to my trove of NEVER before known facts about popes.

Deanna heard about this on NHPR this morning and conveyed it to me with my morning coffee. She told me to look it up. I did. And now I am sharing.

Given that we encounter the horrendous road works everytime we try to get to or through Alton, does anybody know WHO is paying the BIG BUCKS for that totally overblown Route 28 (West) project. Definitely looks like good money for ol’ rope. Somebodies pockets are being richly lined. But this mindless project started before the gas hike.
