Let it Burn!

And so 350 years ago, yesterday, the King’s baker in London, did not properly attend to putting his oven out, and London burned. Thus the Great Fire of London. Samuel Pepys wrote in his diary… Some of our maids sitting up late last night to get things ready against our feast today, Jane called up […]

Britain’s Elites Can’t Ignore the Masses

Megan McArdle wrote the other day about her experience in a European airport and spending a day in Luton. if you would know the real reason that England specifically voted for Brexit, I think she found it, as well as anyone can sort out the many and varied reasons why the Brits decided to leave.

And the last Word, for our British Friends and Cousins.

This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle, This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the […]

The Queen’s 90th Birthday

  I wanted to write another post on leadership today, so I did. Today is Queen Elizabeth’s 90th birthday. Like the very luckily much younger (and far more beautiful) Laura says here, “she’s the only Queen of the United Kingdom, I’ve ever known”. And Britain and the Commonwealth, and yes, the United States, as well, is very […]

Inquisition Against ‘Climate Change Disbelievers’: and More

Something here that we, and the Brits, had best start thinking about, read the articles, and then we’ll talk. Beginning in 1478, the Spanish Inquisition systematically silenced any citizen who held views that did not align with the king’s. Using the powerful arm of the government, the grand inquisitor, Tomas de Torquemada, and his henchmen […]

Obama’s wrong. Americans should back Brexit – and so should you

Because Americans love Britain, and because we are a presumptuous lot, we often advise the United Kingdom on its foreign policy. And not only the UK, but Europe. Successive US administrations have urged European nations to form a United States of Europe as an answer to the question attributed to Henry Kissinger: ‘Who do I […]

Laura Perrins: The Big State is the inevitable result of chaining women to the work station

Many of us here are interested in how we got here. Not least because here is not a very good place to be, and perhaps we should consider how we could return to another, perhaps better place. Laura Perrins of A Conservative Woman has some thoughts about that, and I think we should listen. Stop […]

God bless fracking! and Teaching our History

Look at this – Hard. The environmentalists and the left and the Democrats1 would have us believe that fracking is evil, evil, evil! but I, as a working man, sure have seen the benefits. The chart shows what I had to pay for heating oil last winter, in Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, compared with what I […]

Dawlish Chronicles : Nelson and Hardy – the forging of a partnership

Tomorrow we will be commemorating the 215th anniversary of the Battle of Trafalgar, Where Lord Nelson ended for all time the pretensions of the French and Spanish to be world powers. This is important to Americans because, without the Royal Navy, the Monroe Doctrine would have been impossible, and in truth it would have been […]

Agincourt thank-you sceptre to go on display

Next Sunday will mark St. Crispin’s day and the 600th anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt, the near-miraculous victory of Henry V of England over the French Nobility. I’ll have a post on it then but for now, that original ‘Band of Brothers’ knew they had done something special and commemorated it accordingly. Like this: […]

Barbarians in the City

Kevin D. Williamson over at National Review has an excellent article up on the mess in Paris. he reminds us that the terrorists are not animals, simply because they are much worse.

Cannadine on Britain, America, and Churchill

There’s no shortage of news, as I’m sure you know, and I suspect you know nearly as much about it, or soon will, as I do. So let’s do something else. Like so many of you, I greatly admire Winston Churchill, one of the truly great men, as both a statesman and as an author, […]

What if this story was about Jews and not Muslims?


Jews who are kosher do not eat pork or shellfish for the following reason:

In the Bible, G‑d lists two requirements for an animal to be kosher (fit to eat) for a Jew: Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves. Pigs do have split hooves but do not chew their cud, so we cannot eat pig meat and its derivatives. In the seafood department, we may only eat fish that have both fins and scales. (Source)

Yet Jews whose job it is to check people out at a grocery store would likely not ‘hold up‘ management to have a replacement employee handle the food as Muslim employees have done in England.

And, if the Jewish employees actually tried, management would likely fire them for making unreasonable demands!

But in a politically correct world where fear of retribution supersedes common sense, here is a story about the grocery chain Marks and Spencer in England and Ireland:

Marks & Spencer is facing a boycott from hundreds of customers furious at the store’s decision to allow Muslim staff to refuse to serve customers buying alcohol or pork products.

The policy was revealed after customers trying to buy pork or alcohol from a Muslim shop assistant in central London were told they would have to use another till because of the cashier’s religion.

The chain has admitted, however, that it has breached its own internal policy – by forcing its staff to choose between their beliefs and their responsibilties to the supermarket.

A spokesperson for M&S said that it works closely with employees with specific beliefs that restrict what food or drink they can handle, but on this occasion it had to “regret” that it had not followed its own guidelines.

“Where we have an employee whose religious beliefs restrict food or drink they can handle, we work closely with our member of staff to place them in suitable role, such as in our clothing department or bakery in foods. (Source)

He’s Back

Well that was a long intermission. Like most people, we plan for failures, and maintain some duplicate things, different computers, and routers and such. What you might call a failure plan, and we’re no exception. In large measure we use either older equipment, or less capable portable things that we use in the field. Normally […]
