The Queen of England is 90. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2016 v10n1p0421

The Queen of England is also the Queen of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, plus Australia, New Zealand, and a handful of other countries. When she became queen over 60 years ago, she had more subjects. Which is beside the point.

The real point is that the queen has kept going, kept healthy, kept working until she was 90, and gives no signs of stopping. I have not seen her use a walker or in any way give an indication that age is slowing her down. She is the longest-lived monarch in British history, and has reigned the longest.

Happy birthday Queen Elizabeth II!!!!

The white rabbit SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2016 v10n1p0601

My grandfather's uncle Campbell Dodgson CBE was the Oxford tutor of the love of Oscar Wilde, Lord Arthur Douglas, whom Uncle Campbell introduced. Uncle Campbell always wore white suits and was dropping things and looking at his pocket watch. 

My brothers and I were told by various Dodgson men that Uncle Campbell was likely the model for the white rabbit in a book written by another Oxford Dodgson, a third cousin of Uncle Campbell and my great grandfather. Which is impossible, Alice in Wonderland was published before Uncle Campbell was born. I am quite sure Uncle Campbell irritated his third cousin immensely. I know Dodgsons.

Uncle Campbell married the daughter of Professor Spooner, who invented Spoonerisms, and was the curator of prints at the British Museum for about 50 years. He was an expert on Duehrer. He died 2 years before I was born. Campbell Dodgson click here.
Episcopal Church kicked out. SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2016 v10n1 p0114

Just when we thought the British Empire could not collapse any further, it did, today, when Anglican priests gathered at Canterbury and voted to boot out America. So there. Or rather, the Episcopal Church, which is, or was until today, the closest relative in the United States to the worldwide Anglican communion. Anglicans in the US will disagree with me, but look at the numbers. The Anglican church is nothing like as large as the Episcopal church, which owns lots of churches, lots of property.

And why? Because, like the Republic of Ireland, the whole Republic of Ireland, the Episcopal Church recognizes, and celebrates, all marriages between committed humans.

Aagh. The Anglican Church is the religion of my fathers, in fact, I was christened into the Anglican Church in Ireland, and confirmed Anglican in Australia. Many of my relatives have been priests, for example, a former Bishop of Norwich click here, and my relatives are priests to this day. 

This homophobia is not universal with Anglican priests. A prominent Anglican priest, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, wants us all to treat all humans with respect, and rejoiced when his daughter, a priest, married her partner. Archbishop Tutu click here.

We need young persons coming up through the ranks of the Anglican Church to right this wrong. Kick out the Americans by all means, but learn to love one another. We are all we have.

Police chiefs to discuss offering guns to all frontline officers

National Police Chiefs’ Council paper is intended to spark debate, but change in policy unlikely to happen immediately

Police chiefs will consider the possibility of offering a gun to every frontline police officer in England and Wales, to counter the threat of a marauding terrorist attack, the Guardian has learned.

A discussion paper on the subject has been drawn up for the next meeting of the National Police Chiefs’ Council (NPCC), which wants to look at how to boost armed police numbers to deal with a crisis, following the atrocities in Manchester and London.
