    1. Interesting vita, indeed. I was not aware of his connection and co-operation with John Cleese and others.

    2. I don't normally have the patience for a long video but I got hooked and stayed all the way through on this one. I found it poignant, reflective, insightful, interesting, funny, sad, touching and even a little bit inspiring. I raise my glass of Innis & Gunn The Original Bourbon Barrel Scotch Ale at a worthy 6.6% alcohol by volume and bit you a peaceful evening.

    3. Ah, Andrew, thanks. When you wrote this, I lay already in Morpheus' arms. Trying to change my daily rhythm a bit. (Not that I would be biting, either :)
      Glad you enjoyed both the docu and the Ale.

  2. or "bid" even. I do not bite :) (oops, sorry Don... nah, feck off Don... the beer has emboldened me, perhaps dangerously).

    1. In order to protect you, emboldened Andrew, I was close to delete your naughty words. But then I came to think of that the noble Don seems to have mellowed by age, and thus might not pitch his lance ... well, you know the places which hurt most.

    2. As the Don mellows so do I become more cantankerous, deluded and erratic... sometimes I think we may even one day be found to have merged into one.
