Sika deer in Ashridge


Original YT playout date: 10 February 2009
Duration: 39:12

“I can’t belive you you film this, let alone make other people watch it afterwards, REDICULOUS!” wrote one commentator. Nevertheless, I am enjoying watching it afterwards, as it has my parents on and little Sophie’s voice, which otherwise would be lost for ever as my parents are gone, zichro baruch, Sophie hi gdolah achshav, and this will never happen again. So even if someone doesn’t like it, I don’t really care too much. I like it. Yeah, it’s a pity that the video cam is blurred, but that’s what I had. Some people see the world like that anyway, because they don’t realise that they need glasses. Just as some commentators comment like that because they don’t realise they need more brains.

Nick Coppernickers and the Solar Systers


Original YT playout date: 13 January 2009
Duration: 8:20

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.
