Growing Romaine Lettuce
Awens to All:

I need some Advice on how to Grow Romaine Lettuce from Seed.

I have had Two Goes at it and it already appears that my 2nd Attempt at Germinating Romaine Lettuce Seeds is Failing Miserably.

They Sprout no problem. They Grow Up Tall and Fast. But after Growing Up Tall and Fast, they seem to Flop...

Four investment banks leaving Britain
The economy is going to suffer. This is what I hoped for.

No new houses in Oxford when the bank fuckers leave, hooray!

Brexit doing its work.

Merrill Lynch announced today it was leaving.

A few weeks ago, I came upon this rather Interesting YouTube on 5 Mysterious Ancient Ruins & Structures That Remain Unexplained:



One of the things that caught my Attention was mention of the 'Goseck Circle'.

From the article, it was created at about the same time in Germany as the Great Stonehenge of the Wiltshire Plain and also indicates when the Winter and Summer Solstices would come.

I then looked it up and found its Wikipedia Listing:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Goseck_circle



The original configuration and traces of Goseck Circle reveal that the structure once consisted of two wooden fences, one mound and four concentric circles. The site was approximately 75 meters (246 feet) in diameter. A narrow ditch enveloped the circular wooden wall and three gates – one facing north, one facing southwest and the last one facing southeast, were equally space out around the outer edge. Standing at the center of the structure during the winter solstice, December 21, a person could see the sun rise from the southeast gate and set through the southwest gate. It has been observed that the entrances get progressively smaller the closer to the center one gets, which would have concentrated the sun’s rays into a narrow path.

For anyone Pagan, this is something that can go onto your Bucket List!

We just recently filled long wheel base VW van with books two boxes high from end to end. The owner and the Sunday guy brought them down from the fourth floor of these nice flats near the shop - the lift broke after half an hour and in total it took them five hours, just after that heawave in June. Poor guys.

The books were from the estate of bloke who worked in the Ashmolean and who was a Communist Party M L (Marxist Leninist) member. We paid a smallish amount for them but they are great stuff, all Marx and Lenin published in Moscow in the '70's, Left Book Club, Che, Mao, Hoxha, stuff on Vietnam, Nazism, classics as well, and sheet music, he was a serious guy..the students are lapping it up.

Then yesterday I took a call from an unknown bloke, sounded quite RP, didn't care to introduce himself, but he said he was a friend of the deceased gentleman comminuist from the upmarket flats, and would I like to sell as many of or ALL of the collection to him?

Well, no, I immediately said...the idea is to sell them all individually. End of story. Anyway the bloke came in today....with his slightly twattish ex-public school mates who were twats because they talked way too much in too obvious voices with much too long blonde hair, obviously thought they were so worth getting exposed to.

Eventually, partly not to seem rude - I had to reflect some enthusiam - when presented with a purchase of all the communist literature they could find I asked were they in Momentum or doing a degree, but I felt stupid for saying that as they looked a bit older and were only buying hard left stuff, so they replied no, CPGBML...and said they knew the man and had called yesterday. He's a coach for sports in one of the nearby colleges.

So the question is how do they expect a shop to survive if it sells all its perfect stock at a bargain price of perhaps a sixth of its real value? Either they don't understand business or they are are just so entitled they think anyone will cut their own throat just to keep them onside. Admittedly they weren't precious about it and didnt try it on again which some people do (some oldish denim clad beanpole with trendy aspirations yesterday thought four LP's for £19 was "bulk-buying" meriting a discount, and couldn't hide his despondancy at being refused) but nonetheless they tried everything, he was a friend etc etc (he used to teach them communism every weekend).

Can you tell us the story about the the Israeli marathon where the Orthodox were lying in the roads protesting? What were they cross about? The fact that it was a national competition and they don't believe in the nation yet?

Awens to All:

Although a few of them I had never heard of so makes me wonder what is so Popular about them, here is List 25's Popular Holidays With Pagan Origins:



Not too bad but there were a couple of them that I did not get how he correlated them to Pagan Holidays such as the Jewish Poram (Described as Jewish Halloween) which he admits whose exact Origins are Unknown. Then there is Thanksgiving which was founded in America to Celebrate the First Harvest of the Pilgrims who were totally Christian and its day was picked at Random and not on any Paganistic Reasons. And finally, Hanakha which is purely Jewish and has no Pagan Reason whatsoever. There were a few other Holidays that had nothing to do with Paganism on this list but I have decided not to totally pick this YouTube Presentation to too many Pieces.
