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. 
Englishwoman survives US deep-freeze. SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2014 v8n1 p0108

Davis and Rudd contradict each other over whether 'no deal' Brexit 'unthinkable' - Politics live

Rolling coverage of the day’s political developments as they happen, including David Davis’s Commons statement on Brexit and Boris Johnson taking Foreign Office questions

Speaking at a news conference in Luxembourg, Michel Barnier, the EU’s chief Brexit negotiator, has denied that the EU is to blame for the slow pace of the Brexit talks. He said:

If you take a look at the timetable, take a look at the date of the Brexit referendum, the date when we received Theresa May’s letter which triggered the negotiating process almost a year later and then we had to await the general election to allow us to begin at the end of June.

In the light of that, just look at the timetable. The EU is not holding anything or anybody back. We are ready and willing to even speed up the negotiations.

Axed! Who killed Crimewatch – and why?

The BBC show has been brutally dispatched and forensic television criticism suggests that several issues combined to end the life of the veteran franchise

Hello, and welcome to this Crimewatch special, in which we investigate the brutal axing, on the morning of Tuesday 17 October 2017, of the BBC series itself. Crimewatch was 33 years old, and leaves a survivor, Crimewatch Roadshow, which will live on in BBC1 daytime. Crimewatch will always be remembered for its catchphrase, “Goodnight, please don’t have nightmares,” coined by presenter Nick Ross to allay concerns about the effect on viewers of the often graphic reconstructions.

In this case, please don’t phone, email or tweet us your suspicions. It is already known that the slaying of Crimewatch was carried out by Charlotte Moore, a 49-year-old BBC director of content from the W1A area. Her motive is interesting. Forensic television criticism suggests that the following issues combined to end the life of the veteran franchise.

'A readymade family': adoptive home sought for four Rotherham sisters

Judge has ruled girls, all under 10, cannot be separated and foster mother feels she is too old to look after them

Social services in Rotherham are looking for a new adoptive home for four sisters because their foster mother feels she is too old to look after them.

A care plan approved by a judge has ruled that the girls, all under 10, cannot be separated. Their 66-year-old foster mother, who has been kept anonymous to protect the identity of the children, said the girls needed a home for at least the next 18 years, and that she and her husband were unable to provide that.

Bank of England's Mark Carney says inflation hasn't peaked yet after hitting 3% today - as it happened

A down day for equities, with European markets mostly finishing lower. After edging towards another closing high, the FTSE 100 finally ended in the red despite a dip in the pound. Sterling suffered on continuing Brexit fears and following dovish comments from members of the Bank of England’s monetary policy committee. Elsewhere the main markets took a breather although Spain bucked the trend, with the Ibex recovering from its recent weakness in the wake of the row over Catalan independence. The final scores showed:

The Dow above 23,000 was short-lived, for the moment at least. It is still up, but just 0.08% at 22,976.

Dow 23,000, we hardly knew ye. #sarcasm
