Off Conferencing

I’m off for a week. The regular posts will appear more or less at the regular times. Posting may be light or not. Clearing out the auto-moderation and spam filters will be slower than usual. Please remember at the moment that I’m taking a very risk-averse approach to these matters. If your comment looks like Bird or spam it gets binned.  Be sure to crap on about censorship and tyranny in the meantime.

    As Papa John said “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair”

    Clear as mud, sir. My last “in moderation” comment had no telltale signs of ornithology or tinned meat products.

    Reminds me of :

    “I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia. It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma; but perhaps there is a key. That key is Russian national interest.”

    Old Churchill had a way putting it succinctly.

    Love it!

    Have a good trip, Sinclair.

  7. Old School Conservative

    Remember, it’s not a junket if you are on it.

    Oh he’s leaving, on a jet plane, don’t know when he’ll be back again …

    See you later chip potata.

  9. Remember Sinc, if you feel the Earth move under your feet, get in the bathtub and throw a mattress over ya’self.
    (There’s also a song about that).

    Did young women ever look more beautiful than then?

    Did young women ever look more beautiful than then?

    I was thinking the same.

    But I still associate hippies (eg as at Woodstock) with the beginnings of the drug culture, breakdown of family, permissiveness and promiscuity, more and worse drugs and crime.

    Seconded. I love the ‘crap on’ comment

    Libertarians. Like herding mullet with a Zeppelin, bloody difficult!

    Old Churchill had a way putting it succinctly.

    Churchill was at his ablutions one morning, when a message arrived that the Lord Privy Seal – who Churchill detested – wished to see him.

    “Tell the Lord Privy Seal, I am currently sealed to my privy, and can only deal with one shit at a time!”

    Make your next conference in the South Pacific, Sinc.
    That’s the place for flowers in your hair (or round your neck if balding) these days.
    I wore a wonderful scented floral coronel in Tahiti; bigger than a bowl of fruit.
    Made from a blanket full of fresh flowers as I watched.
    Haight-Ashbury is nowhere now; grubby as. Nevertheless, lovely, lovely redolent song.
    Fisherman’s Wharf still ok though, and the painted ladies near Alamo Square are a treat.
    (these are houses not women; as if I would suggest anything else)

    Nice song, lovely sentiment… 50 years on, the sentiment is as wrinkled as those once young bodies. California hasn’t aged gracefully. As a State she’s a bit of a drunken ol’ tart living in the trailer park of broke assed States.

  16. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV)

    We must all diversify and integrate!

  17. cohenite

    I was there. It was…something. Now it just makes me sick to realise what it has spawned.

  18. Robber Baron

    San Fransisco. Now a sanctuary city, but in my youth it was the city of Clint Eastwood and Michael Douglas and Karl Maldin. No pinko sleeze balls could stop them from cleaning up the streets.

  19. herodotus

    Did young women ever look more beautiful than then?
    True. I married a lovely one of that vintage, and we’re still married 40+ years on, still best friends.
    Now we’ve two grandchildren as well, and can say without any unbecoming exaggeration that they don’t come any cuter or smarter than those two.

  20. Snoopy

    Now a sanctuary city, but in my youth it was the city of Clint Eastwood and Michael Douglas and Karl Maldin

    And Steve. Don’t forget Steve.

  21. Marcus

    No one’s forgotten Steve Miller, Snoopy.

  22. Oh come on

    Be sure to crap on about censorship and tyranny in the meantime.

    Let the bleating commence!

    Sinclair,

    Take some time out for this one which gave me comfort whilst I was sitting around with a smashed up knee at that time.

    Acoustically this is the best one on Youtube

    but there is this one as well
