Man Newsletter, Friday 21 July 2017
fresh in stock, a new special offer, our Top Five
bestsellers... and your free bonus giveaway!
Well, the summer
holidays kick off today for most school-children, with six weeks off,
until early September. (I suspect that the summer holidays are
generally regarded as being like the
curate's egg - good in parts - or, like Marmite,
you either love them or hate them!) We have Lewis (Number-Two-Grandson)
and Emmy (Number-Three-Grand-daughter), and their Dad Colin (Number-One-Son)
staying with us for the next week - and then we'll probably have some of the remaining
seven grand-kids staying later in the holidays...
And - in a similar
summer vein - as we're rapidly approaching the traditional time of year to
celebrate the fruits of the first harvest (Lammas Day
on Tuesday 1 August),
we're keeping a close eye on the garden for our first harvest of
tomatoes, chillis, runner beans, and carrots. They're all coming along
nicely... but as we no longer have a greenhouse, whether any of them
will actually be ready in time for Lammas is another matter. If not, we'll just
have to celebrate our fourth or fifth harvest of rhubarb!
Now, as usual
I'm afraid we have to report on the demise of some well-known names in
the two weeks since the last edition of the newsletter. So, with a heavy
heart, we bid farewell to American vocalist Chester
Bennington (41), front-man of the band Linkin
Park, American film-maker George A
Romero (77), probably best-known for creating the "Living
series of movies, and Oscar-winning American actor Martin Landau (89), who
you'll probably remember from his role as Rollin
Hand in the original 1960s "Mission:
Impossible" TV series, or as Commander
John Koenig, the commander of Moonbase
Alpha, in the 1970s British
TV series "Space: 1999"...
So to close this
first section of the newsletter
today, in memory of Mr
Landau, I thought we'd share with you the
complete first episode of "Space: 1999"...
Right, let's get back to
business. Here are the brief edited highlights of the more
