Duration: 14:18

The rooks come home to rest, and I take my kids to their horse therapy. Later on we see our balcony snowman and discuss how the comments of a few morons led to my needing to take down a successful film. Between these morons on the one hand and morons like Warners on the other, I am losing material these days almost as fast as I can put it up.

Mickolas or Nickolas Coppernickers is the name of the Polish dude from Torun who spoke Latin and German and maybe Polish too, and who discovered the solar system and got told off by the Catholic church for getting above himself. His monument is round the corner from where George went to hospital for his rotovirus, and we went to visit him.

Two Birthdays


Original playout date: 11 July 2007
Duration: 9:52

Once again a nice memory of my late parents, and I am glad that there are these few snatches of them that live on. As indeed do the charming scenes of all three little ones so cute and tiny, and Elena walking around on her own. These were the days we thought would never end, and thanks to video, my friend, in a sense they don’t.

Other remarks:

A nice reminder for me of fishes from times gone by. Of these fishes none are alive today, 11 years later. The pim catfish is the only one you could expect that for, but it had an accident and caught a fin in a net.

This is a discussion following on from someone saying that my tanks were too small in a comment to earlier video “Convicts in Love”.

Quote of the clip: “Small tanks, indeed! Enough of that.”
