Lavatory Humour

Whilst in Amsterdam, at the Photography Museum, I was forced to ask myself whether or not I should emerge from this loo to join the rest of the party.

Finally, I took the plunge, as it were, and did.

Light(en) Up? ~ not any more!

The above Pdf is available for printing but must be at least A5 size before being displayed. There is a dotted guide line with the implication that scissors are to be used. Worryingly, because there is no advice which indicates that care should be taken with the use of sharp implements! If we are to become a total nanny state then these things need to be thought through. What follows is from an official government site. From which we learn, amongst other things, that 'smokefree' is now a word as is, 'nosmoking'. I have had tell my spell-checker to learn this, and eschew. 'smoke free' and 'smoke-free'; likewise ignore, 'no smoking' or 'non smoking' in favour of 'nosmoking'. It's a throw back to that old joke about a character called. 'Nosmo King'. I am mildly curious to know why 'herbal' concoctions cannot be indulged ~ they are non-carcinogenic but perhaps it paves the way for 'other substances' to be enjoyed. Enjoyment is the one thing that is to be prevented. Will any of this help the reduction of carbon emissions, or just raise the temperatureof those who are being nannied into a certain course of action? I know the arguments for this legislation but am constitutionally inclined to resist and resent being told what to do and what not to do; especially by politicians.


When will the new smokefree law start?
Sunday, 1 July 2007.

Who will enforce the new law?
Local councils and port health authorities will enforce the new law and will have the power to appoint enforcement officers, such as environmental health officers, trading standards or local community support officers.

Does the law just apply to cigarettes?
No, it covers all substances that a person can smoke. These include manufactured cigarettes, hand­rolled cigarettes, pipes, cigars, herbal cigarettes and water pipes (including shisha, hookah and hubble­bubble pipes).

Can I still have a staff smoking room?
No, but you can have an outdoor smoking shelter, although there is no requirement for you to do so. If you decide to, you will need to ensure it is not ‘enclosed’ or ‘substantially enclosed’.You may also need to consider other issues such as planning, licensing and building control, noise and litter.

Can I smoke in my own car?
Yes, the new law doesn’t cover vehicles used primarily for private purposes.

I share a work vehicle with another smoker. Can we still smoke?
No, the law is designed to protect smokers and non­smokers from secondhand smoke. Smoking will only be permitted in work vehicles that are for the sole use of the driver and are not used by anyone else for work either as a driver or passenger.

I work from home. Will it be required to be smokefree?
If more than one person uses any part of a private dwelling solely as a place of work, then it will be required to be smokefree.

Does new smokefree law apply to premises and vehicles used for voluntary work?
Yes, the new law applies to all work, including voluntary work.

I occasionally use my private car for voluntary work, will it need to be smokefree?
No, vehicles used primarily for private purposes will not need to be smokefree.

Are no­smoking signs required in heritage buildings?
Any premises required to be smokefree will need to display no­smoking signs that meet the requirements of the new law prominently at entrances. The new law allows flexibility for signs to be designed and displayed in a way that fits the decor of premises.

Where can I get more information? For further information, visit or call the Smokefree England information line on 0800 169 169 7. You can also ask your local council for advice and support.


The new 'nosmoking' signs are available in eight different languages though the graphic would seem to be universally recognised. Still, it enables us to use yet more paper to clutter up our visual environment with tat and rubbish in addition to what we have already.

There's money to be made from these signs. Thirty four different versions can be ordered from:
"No Butts Bin Company"
If you are partially sighted fear not for:
"Additional formats, for example large print and braille, may also be made available on request."

If you really want to continue smoking then perhaps you should be committed to a Mental Health Unit where the legislation doesn't come into effect for another year exactly ~ don't ask! Alternatively, if you reside in a care home there may well be little havens of comfort reserved for you, apart from the bike sheds. Though if the bike shed in question is 'partially enclosed' then it will be deemed to be 'smokefree'. So, no excuses . . . Now for the penalties:

Penalties and fines for breaking the smokefree law
If you don't comply with the new smokefree law, you will be committing a criminal offence. The fixed penalty notices and maximum fine for each offence are:

Smoking in smokefree premises or work vehicles:

a fixed penalty notice of £50 (reduced to £30 if paid in 15 days) imposed on the person smoking. Or a maximum fine of £200 if prosecuted and convicted by a court.

Failure to display no-smoking signs:

a fixed penalty notice of £200 (reduced to £150 if paid in 15 days) imposed on whoever manages or occupies the smokefree premises or vehicle. Or a maximum fine of £1000 if prosecuted and convicted by a court.

Failing to prevent smoking in a smokefree place:

a maximum fine of £2500 imposed on whoever manages or controls the smokefree premises or vehicle if prosecuted and convicted by a court. There is no fixed penalty notice for this offence.

Local councils will be responsible for enforcing the new law in England.
A telephone line (0800 587 166 7) will also be in operation from 1 July 2007 to enable members of the public to report possible breaches of the law. This information will be passed to local councils to follow-up as appropriate.

Just like parking offences, if you pay up early it is cheaper. Interestingly, those who have to enforce the law suffer heavier penalties than the smoker who has broken the law! Acts of ommission carry heavier penalties than acts of commission. To help everyone become more friendly and sociable, in this new world order, there is help line where you can report to the authorities those who are breaking the law, by smoking; by failing to stop others smoking; by failing to post 'nosmoking' signs .

The Venetians too, had this kind of 'grassing' system to report malefactors, and enemies of the state, however, that was ended a few hundred years ago.

Secret of Political Success

I read today, as a teaser to a Times magazine article that is to appear on Saturday, that the departing prime-minister, Tony Blair had a pair of hand-made, brogue shoes. He wore these, to every parliamentary question time, since 1997.
No harm in that I guess, good to know that these Church's shoes lasted so well and had only to be resoled once in all that time.

What is slightly disturbing is that the leader of our country is on record as declaring them to be his "lucky" shoes.
Forget statesmanship, forget informed wise leadership ~ what we seem to rely upon is a pair of "lucky" shoes.

Tonight at work in the Criterion restaurant, I was chatting to some American tourists who volunteered that they not angry with George Bush, because you cannot be angry with someone who is so palpably stupid and lacking in any brain. Perhaps, he too, would benefit from lucky footwear!

Olympic Standards

Well there it is . . . a lot of money spent, a team of 'creative' people working to a brief, and many meetings and many hours, to achieve this.

I guess that, as part of the design requirement it had to be able to be animated, so it probably does what it says on the packet.

Many folk think it's not very good and have come up with their own variations ~

Other designers have created some really good, colourful designs that could easily be animated too.

My favourite has to be:

I think that we could do much better than the official logo which, however much hard work went into it, is no substitute for talent!

PR for Eurostar

Train travel gets on board the ‘horse-drawn’ bandwagon?

From: Eurostar advertising

"Tread Lightly. Two words. One commitment.
A whole new approach to European travel.

Global warming is a scientific fact. No one can afford to ignore it. Travellers are worried about it. And the industry is talking about it. But actions speak louder than words.

You may already be aware that a Eurostar journey is 10 times less polluting than flying. But we believe that everyone can do more. So, from November 14th 2007, the day we open at St. Pancras International, we are changing the way we operate as a business. We have now launched Tread Lightly, an initiative designed to further reduce our impact on the environment (what scientists call our ‘footprint’) and to help our travellers do the same.

As part of this initiative, we have made a commitment to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by a further 25% per traveller journey by 2012. Consequently, we will be making changes across all areas of our business, from the big things like energy efficiency, paperless ticketing and waste management, through supply chain selection to smaller cultural changes like recycling in our offices.

Any remaining emissions will be offset, at no cost to the traveller, meaning that from November 14th 2007, Eurostar is proud to offer carbon neutral journeys.

We’re on a journey. A very important one. And, as ever we’re delighted to have you with us."

My slight confusion arises in trying to reconcile these two statements:

“Any remaining emissions will be offset, at no cost to the traveller, meaning that from November 14th 2007, Eurostar is proud to offer carbon neutral journeys.”

So carbon neutral by 2007 ~ Splendid.

“we have made a commitment to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by a further 25% per traveller journey by 2012.”

Does this mean that they go from Carbon Neutral journeys (2007) to Carbon Negative travel (2012) as they reduce emmissions by a further 25% ?

Is it me, or does this lack ‘joined up thinking’?

Perhaps the "Tread Lightly" quotation needs to finished as intended by W.B.Yeats; " Tread lightly because you tread on my dreams."

Dream on Eurostar!

Sea View?

I guess if mud and gravel aren't your forte then facing away from the sea and the sailing dingy is a reasonable alternative; in which case I cannot help but wonder why they bother going to the beach at all!

I am reminded of those day-trippers who arrive at the seaside car-park and then set up their picnic table adjacent to the boot of their car. I guess they can keep an eye on the car whilst they eat. It sort of defeats the object of a 'day out' somehow.

Today we mourn the passing of a beloved old friend, Mr. Common Sense, who has been with us for many years. No one knew for sure how old he was, since his birth records were long ago lost in bureaucratic red tape.

He will be remembered as having cultivated such valuable
lessons as:
knowing when to come in out of the rain; why the early bird gets the worm; appreciating that Life isn't always fair; and accepting that Maybe it was my fault.

Mr. Common Sense lived by simple, sound financial policies (don't spend more than you can earn) and reliable strategies (adults, not children, are in charge).

His health began to deteriorate rapidly when well-intentioned, but overbearing, regulations were set in place: Reports of a 6 year-old boy charged with sexual harassment for kissing a classmate; teenager suspended from school for using mouthwash after lunch; and a teacher fired for reprimanding an unruly student.

His condition worsened and Common Sense lost ground when parents attacked teachers for doing the job that they themselves had failed to do in disciplining their unruly children.

It declined even further when schools were required to get Parental consent to administer Paracetemol, Sun lotion or a Band-aid to a student; but could not inform parents when a student became pregnant and wanted to have an abortion.

Common Sense lost the will to live as the Ten Commandments became contraband; churches became businesses; and criminals received better treatment than their victims.

Common Sense took a beating when you couldn't defend yourself from a burglar in your own home and the burglar could sue for assault.

Common Sense finally gave up the will to live, after a woman failed to realize that a steaming cup of coffee was hot. She spilled a little in her lap, and was promptly awarded a huge financial settlement.

Common Sense was preceded in death by his parents, Truth and Trust; his wife, Discretion; his daughter, Responsibility; and his son, Reason. He is survived by his 3 stepbrothers; I Know My Rights, Someone Else Is To Blame, and I'm A Victim.

His funeral had few mourners because his passing largely went un-noticed.

Pathetic Panasonic

So, I present Brian with a new camera because I think that he deserves encouragement with his photography and this slightly larger model than the Ixus camera, which got stolen, has a better grip and has a stabiliser. Our friend Sophie has one and we were impressed with the results. Lumix DCM FZ7 for the technophiles. It came without a camera case.

After a search on the internet I find that the case for this camera is in the USA. I try to purchase it but I have to register for an account and, yes there is no space to register in the UK. I send them e-mails asking if they ship to the UK. I guess by their lack of response that they don't even e-mail to the UK. Dead end. No-one in the UK seems to have this item so I finally find Panasonic's UK site. Now I will get somewhere . . .

I phone them:

"Hi, I'm trying to track down a camera case for the Lumix DCM FZ7. Can you help?"

"There is one but it is not available in this country"

"Er yes, in the USA?"

" Not in this country ~ we are seeing if they can be made available."

" You mean I can buy a Panasonic camera in this country but not the case for it?"

"There is a case for it ~ but it's not available in this country."

"Mmmm (What a load of rubbish this international corporation is) What do you suggest I do?"

"Go to Jessops and buy a third party case."

"Thank you. Goodbye"

Panasonic are, therefore, pathetic. Buyer beware!

David Weeks MIMC

Out of the blue, but in time for Easter, came an announcement that the President of The Magic Circle has recommended me to be elevated to MIMC which stands for Member of the Inner Magic Circle. This promotion will mean very little to the general public but within the club it means that you have arrived! The award, curiously, is in the gift of the President and is then, by convention, ratified by the council. It is not, like the Associate of the Magic Circle (AMIC) nor Membership (MMC) achieved through an examination.

Ask not the reason why me? Be grateful at the honour bestowed!

Well, thanks.

Likings & Loathings

Back in February Brian posted 'Likes and Dislikes' relating to a particular letter of the alphabet; many others joined in the game and I too, requested a letter.
Late, but here is the letter:


Men and Mates and in particular My Man (Brian) and, in the past, Michael

A boy's best friend ~ My Mother

The goddess of the night, that pale satellite of the earth, the Moon

On the Moon these are found and on the earth too, those magnificent enduring lumps of geomorphological creation Mountains

To make me Mirthful or Mournful or Meditative or a combination of all of them ~ Movies

My hobby and my job, Magic, and a writer about this, the late
Billy McComb

Meals, Meat and Muffins (better than crumpet)

The human quality of Magnanimity


Muddle and Mess in thought or lifestyle

Mispronunciation of the word 'Homosexual'. The root being Greek for 'same' rather than Latin for 'man'

Misunderstanding of the root of the word 'Chairman'; from the Latin in which the person who is invested with the power at a meeting, rather than assigning a gender. If this were understood then the word 'Chair' for this task would be replaced correctly with 'Chairman'

Misunderstanding of the Millennium and the proper understanding of when it started; at the end of the year 2000.

Mealy-mouthedness ~ call a spade a shovel

Misguided philanthropy, Misanthropy & Meaness of spirit

Munitions. When did they ever actually solve anything?

Misappropriation: theft of videos, films, ideas of others.

Managers who believe in top down, rather than bottom up, style of management. This is exemplified, perfectly, by the continual government legislation of education

Medicine that has so many side-effects that it does more harm than good in the long run

Members of Parliament. In fact most politicians who have their own interests and desire for power taking precedence over the well-being of those they should be serving.

Oh dear I seem to have more dislikes than likes ~ I blame the letter!

Why do it?

Just because something can be done isn’t necessarily a reason to do it.

Version Tracker lists programmes, daily, that are available on Mac computers.

This one turned up today:

Keymileage - 0.5.2
 measures how much your fingers move to type

Product Description:
Keymileage figures out how many miles your fingers travel when typing. You can even measure really long files.

Keymileage tabulates in both the simplified Dvorak layout and the QWERTY layout.

If you can think of a reason for having this, then you can at this site ~ and free too!

I'm It!

Brian certainly likes to keep his reader's busy.
Firstly, I foolishly asked for a letter of the alphabet in order to compile a list of 'Likes' and 'Dislikes' , which I have yet to complete; and now, this game of 'Tag', which feels more like a truth game that used to be played late at night by students after a glass or two, too many.

Five little known facts about David:

1) My first public, magic performance from which time I kept records, was in 1966 at Queen Mary's Hospital, Sidcup, Kent, to the staff and some patients. It was the only time I used a female assistant throughout the act ~ someone who thought they knew what was best suggested this. She was fine, but for my money, superfluous!
Tonight I perform my 3,524th show since keeping these records.

2) Whilst still at school worked in a sound studio on a pilot production of 'The Tempest' with Fiona Walker (Far from the Madding Crowd) and Robert Powell (Doomwatch, Mahler

3) Adapted, directed, recorded and edited my version of Ray Bradbury's 'The Fire Balloons' whilst in year 11 at school. Interesting and fun.

4) Spent several hours in a cell at Swanley Police station, whilst still a teenager. DPP decided not to proceed ~ nuff said.

5) Joined the Bexleyheath Society of Magicians at 14 years old. The club lowered their joining age in order to let me in! Later I won their Stage Magician competition.

B.A. ~ Bl**dy Awful!

BA offered me the chance to upgrade my flight for £50
I go on on-line and try to to do this.
I can’t.
I send an e-mail asking why this is.

The reply:

Dear Mr Weeks
Thank you very much for contacting us.
To be sure you have an answer from us as swiftly as possible, I would be grateful if you will speak to our customer support team. They deal with all pre-travel enquiries and they'll be happy to give you individual assistance.

Please phone them on 0870 850 9 850 and give your booking reference number when you call.

I'm sorry not to be more immediately helpful, but do please phone our customer support team. They'll do all they can to help you at once.

Best regards

Praveen Satheesan

British Airways Customer Relations

I phone the number given:
After an interminable wait I ring off and send another e-mail:

Your reply sent me back to your telephone enquiry service. Here I pay for the privilege of being held in a queue and listening to endless BA adverts and information.
Even early on a Sunday morning you experience and extremely high volume of calls ~ well it is a pre-recorded message so you always experience a high volume of calls ~ perhaps this should tell you something!

I have visited and failed to "manage my booking" and was told to ring you.
I ring you and your message suggests I go on-line.
I am quite dizzy going backwards & forwards. . . .
Most unimpressive.

Looks like the upgrade isn’t going to happen!

So at last, it seems, that those theatrically juvenile members of the public, who previously complained , have at last recognized that an actor is person playing a part in a play, not a 'character' from a film.

The Daily Mail on their web site (click the link) has a number of the audience, who attended a preview, admitting, at last, that this actor, Daniel Radcliffe, is a professional who is doing a good job in a magnificent and important play.

Good luck to him!

Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day Trivia

Did you know that...

Teachers will receive the most Valentine's Day cards, followed by children, mothers, wives, and then, sweethearts.

15% of U.S. women send themselves flowers on Valentine's Day.

More than 50% of cards are sold the week of the holiday, with the largest and most elaborate Valentine cards sold 48 hours before February 14.

About 3% of pet owners will give Valentine's Day gifts to their pets.

Cupid, another symbol of Valentines Day, became associated with it because he was the son of Venus, the Roman god of love and beauty. Cupid often appears on Valentine cards holding a bow and arrows because he is believed to use magical arrows to inspire feelings of love.

Hallmark has over 1330 different cards specifically for Valentine's Day.

In the United States, 64% of men do not make plans in advance for a romantic Valentine's Day with their sweethearts.

70% of those celebrating the holiday give a card, followed by a telephone call (49%), gift (48%), special dinner (37%), candy (33%) restaurant meal (30%), and flowers (19%).

Valentine's Day Superstitions

To be awoken by a kiss on Valentine's Day is considered lucky.

By tradition, a young girl was supposed to eventually marry the first eligible male she met on Valentine's Day.

In Great Britain, a woman would write the names of their sweethearts on small scraps of paper which would be placed on clay balls. The balls were dropped into water with the belief that whichever scrap of paper surfaced first would be the name of the man destined to be the future husband.

Pick a dandelion that has gone to seed. Take a deep breath and blow the seeds into the wind. Count the seed that remain on the stem, and that is the number of children you will have.

Seeing different animals on Valentine's Day can result in different ways; seeing a goldfinch, you will marry a millionaire; seeing a robin you will marry a crime fighter; seeing a dove, you will have a happy peaceful marriage. (Maybe it's a good day to go to the zoo!)

What a Load of Rubbish!

We are led to believe that councils up and down the country care about the environment and to this end they instigate and encourage householders to separate their rubbish so that glass and cardboard and paper can be recycled. A separate collection of this recyclable material is made on a weekly basis. What a good socially responsible thing to do.

This week in conversation with two restaurateurs, who operate in Lambeth, South London, I discover that those 'green' credentials are not what they appear.

These restaurants, between them, produce at least one hundred empty glass bottles per day and numerous sacks of paper and cardboard; in fact the bulk of their waste is not left-over food but this recyclable stuff.

Multiply this by the number of restaurants in this borough and it is clear that there is the potential for an enormous quantity of recyclable material to be collected from relatively few locations.

Is it recycled? Not on your life. It goes to landfill!
Why on earth would the council pass up on such a treasure trove?

It goes like this . . .

Domestic waste is split by the householder. There are two collections per week. one for landfill, one for recycling.

A different firm collects the waste from restaurants and even though it is bagged-up according to type of material, because it has to be collected daily the firm charges those from whom they collect £2.50 per bag; none of this is recycled.

So why don't the restaurateurs take their recyclable stuff to a depot or recycling place ~ because then they are fined for 'fly-tipping'.

It's no win position for them ~ more money is made out of them by charging per bag and increasing the land-fill rather than exercising the socially responsible option.

Any council that behaves like this really is ~ "RUBBISH!"
The point is these restaurants are not producing 'rubbish' but resources.

"Local councils are responsible for the collection and disposal of refuse and have an obligation to reduce waste and promote recycling." Greenhouse Trust


Today we went to the park for a photo opportunity and a coffee.

Here in south of London the snow came, and almost as quickly, it went.

A school decided to introduce a class to the joys of snow-balling.

A message paced into the snow, rather than a sandy beach, revealed at least one person was happy and demonstrated the multi-cultural nature of this area of London.

The Garden failed to attract anyone to take their ease. . . .

. . . except one intrepid fellow.

A coffee in the Cafe was needed:

The Ten Commandments

Brian is busy writing away, creating an adaptation for reading and to be recorded by Sir Cliff, of the Holy Bible ~ in 50 sections.

Now, how long did the bible take to compile in the first place?
How long has Brian been given?
Nuff said.

Today he started on The Ten Commandments but then put that on hold until he's demolished the walls of Jericho ~ a much easier task.

So I thought: the ten commandments, why ten; how come it took so long for Moses to get them?
I 'Googled' (it is a new verb, even though spell check wants 'goggled')

I discover that God didn't have any modern implements with which to write; no paper and pen. Just look~

Quite fantastic! I expect he needed a manicure afterwards.

I then discover that these stone tablets still exist. even though they are somewhat the worse for wear, and cracked:

Imagine my amazement when, on closer inspection I discover that there is more than one
set of tablets. Each of them cracked in their own different way.

In truth, they are not tablets but a single piece of stone; so all those pictures showing Moses with one tucked under each arm are quite wrong.

Not only that, but God made other versions of His Laws:

The Lab's EEG/ERP Research

Some of the lab's resarch (sic) exploits scalp recordings of EEG signals to study the operations and neural circuits that support visual cognition. For some of our work, signals recorded from subjects' brains are converted into event related potentials (ERPs), which are synched (sic) to particular events or actions in experimental tasks.

And then there are Mickey's Laws

That's not all! You can still obtain the Ten Commandments without the fag of going up a mountain. Just see how nice they are, and you get discount for bulk purchases ~ not quite sure why you want more than one set, perhaps to send as presents . . . or to jog the conscience of a covetous neighbour, maybe.

Sensibly the single stone has been made into two proper tablets and the Holy Words now have a textual reference (Exodus) in order to find the whole of each law rather than just the first few words that are inscribed here. In addition there is now a nice little easel on which they can be displayed permanently, instead of hiding them away in a dark old box they called an Ark.

I'm sure that you will just be falling over yourself to obtain these wonderful items so here are some more details:

These Ten Commandments stone tablets weight about 10 pounds. Not too heavy then.

Each of the two tablets are about 8.5" x 15". See, TWO tablets, not one.

The tablets come with an easel. Artistic

These plastic stone composite tablets are guaranteed to last a life time. Not just one lifetime either, but many!

The Children of Israel displayed the Ten Commandments in stone.
I bet they didn't have a nice easel though.

Deuteronomy 4:13 And he declared unto you his covenant, which he commanded you to perform, even ten commandments; and he wrote them upon two tables of stone.

Cost per Set of Stone Tablets
Quantity Price
1 $59.95
2 $56.95
4 $55.00
10 $49.95

Add $5.95 for shipping.
I bet Moses wishes this service was available to him.

To get your Ten Commandments stone tablets, write to the address below, or call 931-935-2110 or toll free at 1-877-210-5266, or send us an e-mail. We appreciate your donations to help us continue supporting the Ten Commandments. These monuments would look great in front of your church or in your flower garden.

I am sure agree these are a simply 'must have ' item.
