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!
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
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
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
"Pete" Moore (78), founder member of The
Miracles, and 1960s British model Christine
Keeler (75), infamous for her part in the Profumo
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...
