A few days a go I posted a snarky comment about how the value of the pound against the dollar had fallen to a quarter of its value during the reign of queen Lizzie, and his pound-dollar parity cannot be far away.

Since then the pound has plummeted.

Normally, this would afford me an opportunity to indulge in some smug schadenfreude, but I can't. This is a bloody disaster, and so many people I know will be badly affected by it.

The economy is ruptured and a truss won't fix it.

I was always wondering what's the difference between Apple Pay and Google Pay.

Now I know: Google knows about every f*cking payment you make, while Apple doesn't.

Back when I Was a Windy Boy and a Bit there was an American boy called Pete in my class for a year. Before he went back, I remember him counting his pocket money. He was enthusiastic because every pound he had got him four dollars back home.

Today Pete would have got 1 dollar and thirteen cents for his money.

Admittedly the USD is very strong at the moment but can parity be far away?

The trend over the reign of queen Elizabeth Windsor Von Saxe-Coburg und Gothe is quite clear.

Incidentally, in this episode of US series 'Family Guy' Stewie says that Family Guy is based on the British series 'Chap of the Manor'.

I guess it will need updating.

When I was a kid, the musical Evita came out. Something reminds me of the opening number 'Oh What a Circus'

....We've all gone crazy,
mourning all day and mourning all night
falling over ourselves to get all
of the misery right...

Many of the lyrics just seem to fit.

“Let's give them some sugar, boys! Let's give them some Welsh sugar!

They've always said we’re too small, we’re too slow, we’re too weak, too full of fear…

But yma o hyd, you sons of Speed!

As they fall around us, we’re still here!”

Luthier Phil Davidson has a display at the Bluegrass festival. I tried out a lovely guitar. He said he'd make me one for £5,000.

Its my birthday next month - so if anyone is looking for present ideas.....

An excellent lecture on Celtic/Indo European goddesses like Rhiannon by an Irish Professor of archeology. He relates the goddesses like Rhiannon, Macha, Epona and even extends to gods and myths from India

If that's too heavy, here by contrast, another stomping version of Rhiannon by Fleetwood Mac...

I feel like setting up a horse goddess festival!
