Incense Man Newsletter, Friday 8 December 2017

What's back (and fresh) in stock, a new special offer, our Top Five bestsellers... and your free bonus giveaway!

Hi there...

Well, I hope you haven't been suffering newsletter-withdrawal-symptoms, because it's been a whole THREE weeks since our last edition, instead of the usual two weeks... and (oh dear) it'll be another FOUR weeks until the next one!

(The delay this time was because Lady Christina and I were celebrating our Ruby (40th) Wedding Anniversary last weekend - if you want to see some photos of the party, you'll find a selection of the least embarrassing ones here - and the rather more obvious reason for the hold-up before the next publication date is the little matter of Christmas. But don't worry... the newsletter will be back in the New Year, on Friday 5 January 2018.)

Talking of Christmas, perhaps I ought to let you know that our office will be closed over the festive season from lunchtime on Friday 22 December, and won't reopen until Tuesday 2 January. Of course, the Incense Man website will remain open the whole time for you to place orders... but I'm afraid they won't be posted until the office re-opens. (Sorry!)

Well, after all that, I'm sorry to say that it's time to take our usual look at the list of well-known names who've passed away in the three weeks since the last edition of this newsletter... and we've had to bid farewell to Australian rock musician Malcolm Young (64), co-founder and rhythm guitarist of AC/DC,  Czech tennis star Jana Novotna (49), Wimbledon women's singles champion in 1998,    British actor Rodney Bewes (79), best known for his role as Bob Ferris in "The Likely Lads",    American pop-star and teen-idol David Cassidy (67), who originally found fame with his role as Keith Partridge in "The Partridge Family",   American bass-guitarist Robert "Pops" Popwell (66), best-known for his work with The Young Rascals and The Crusaders,   legendary Motown vocalist Warren "Pete" Moore (78), founder member of The Miracles,   and 1960s British model Christine Keeler (75), infamous for her part in the Profumo affair...

OK, now to cheer us up after the bad news, here's something for ladies of a certain age - David Cassidy with The Partridge Family, singing "I Think I Love You"...


Right, let's get back to business. Here are the (necessarily very brief) edited highlights of the more noteworthy dates from around the world during the next four weeks... with (as always) my apologies for any errors or omissions...

  • Today, Friday 8 December is the Christian Feast of the Immaculate Conception, and as such is a holiday in many countries, including Argentina, Austria, Spain, Italy, Malta and Portugal ...

  • Monday 11 December is a holiday in Thailand, as a day in lieu of yesterday's Constitution Day...

  • Monday 1 January is New Year's Day, a public holiday in many countries...

  • Tuesday 2 January is a further New Year's holiday in Scotland, New Zealand, Romania, Slovenia, Ukraine, and several other countries.  However, in Russia, the holidays continue for the rest of the week, until Orthodox Christmas Day on Sunday 7 January...

  • And finally Saturday 6 January is the Christian feast of Epiphany or Little Christmas....

OK, that takes us up to (and just beyond) the date of our next scheduled newsletter in four weeks time... so now here's your update on what's been happening on the Incense Man website since the last newsletter, three weeks ago...
