Incense Man Newsletter, Friday
2 August 2019
What's back in stock, a new special offer, our Top Five bestsellers... and your free bonus giveaway!
this may be the end of an era - this is possibly the last
Incense Man newsletter I'll write, as the new owner of the business is due to take
over in a week's time (subject to simultaneous exchange and
completion of the contract!)... although if all
goes according to plan I'll
still be around in handover / training mode for a little while after
that. I do hope that you'll continue to support Incense Man,
because - as those marketing types say - "you gotta use, it or
It's been a busy
time for Chris and me on the family front, as well as the work front,
recently - Number-One-Son Colin
and his other half Caroline have just bought their first house, here
in Bridport, so we've been helping them move in, ferry bits and pieces
about, mend stuff, etc. (I'm trying NOT to get involved in
their redecorating though... I have enough of that of my own to do!)
(And on an even more
parochial subject, our local village Post
Office & Store here in Bradpole is due to re-open on
Tuesday 3 September,
almost 2 years since it closed after the last owner suffered a
serious stroke. So if you happen to be in the area, please do drop in and support the new owners, Wayne and Lisa...)
On a more sombre
note, let's take our usual fortnightly look at which well-known names
have passed on in the two weeks since our last newsletter. We've had
to bid farewell to:- British actor Jeremy
Kemp (84), Dutch actor Rutger
Hauer (75), American singer / songwriter Art
Neville (81), and American voice actress Russi
Taylor (75). Thankfully, not too many this
time... but may they all rest in peace...
Right... after all
that bad news, let's cheer up and rejoice in the talent of the late Rutger
Hauer in one of his most memorable roles. Here's his character Roy
Batty's famous final
speech from the classic sci-fi movie "Blade Runner"...
(it brings a lump to my throat and a tear to my eye every time...)
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...
