Incense Man Newsletter, Friday 8 February 2019

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

Hi there...

Well, I'm very happy to announce the arrival of our tenth grandchild - Lana, a beautiful second daughter for Paul and Sajida, and little sister for Sophia - who was born on Saturday 26 January, weighing in at 7lb 4oz (3.29kg).  So we now have an evenly-matched batch of five grandsons and five granddaughters... and we only need one more for a football team! (Although I suppose we could make do with two five-a-side teams...)

Apart from that, it's been a busy, but relatively un-productive, couple of weeks here since our last newsletter. You know, I think Henry Wadsworth Longfellow may have been talking about our plan to retire later this year when he wrote, "Though the mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceeding small..." (OK, I know he was actually talking about divine retribution, but the bit about grinding slowly seems to apply very well to our current situation!)

In this case, the "mills of God" in question are the machinations of the agents we've asked to value our business, and tell us how they'd propose to sell it. Still, I'm sure we'll get there in the end! (As soon as we have finalised an asking price and are officially on the market, I'll post a link in the newsletter for anyone who's interested...)

OK, so let's get back to our usual stuff... like which celebrities have passed away since our last newsletter two weeks ago. And sadly we've had to bid farewell to:- French composer Michel Legrand (86),  American drummer (with Blue Cheer) Paul Whaley (72),  British actress and radio presenter (mother of Jonathan & Paul Ross)Martha Ross (79),  American R&B singer / songwriter and producer James Ingram (66),  British actor (hen-pecked husband Richard Bucket in "Keeping Up Appearances") Clive Swift (82),  British comedian, radio host and panellist Jeremy Hardy (57), Battle of Britain fighter pilot Tim Elkington (98),  and British sports journalist Vikki Orvice (56).  RIP, one and all...

Well, to cheer us up after all that bed news, here's a blast from the past - Blue Cheer (with recently deceased drummer Paul Whaley doing his best Keith Moon / John Bonham / Mitch Mitchell / Ginger Baker / Animal impression behind all that hair) with their 1968 version of the old Eddie Cochran hit, "Summertime Blues"...

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

 

OK, that takes us up to the date of our next scheduled newsletter in two weeks time... so now here's your update on what's been happening on the Incense Man website since the last newsletter, a fortnight ago...

Well, as I mentioned earlier, it's been a busy fortnight here, but with not a lot to show for it! However, we've still had a few deliveries, so BACK IN STOCK we now have the ever-popular Goloka Nagchampa incense sticks

1) Satya Sai Baba Nag Champa incense sticks - always our Number One bestseller... the hippies' favourite from the 1960s...

2) Goloka Nagchampa incense sticks - they've taken up permanent residence in the Number Two spot... an excellent nag champa variety as an aid to meditation.

3) HEM (Precious) Patchouli incense sticks - up one place from last fortnight's Number Four, this ever-popular and eminently affordable traditional Indian incense...

4) Devdarshan Dhoop - I don't believe these have EVER made it into the Top Five before... so congratulations to them on being a new entry this time...
