Reminds me, happily and freshly, of a course I took some years ago online - Rational and Critical thinking. From a university in the Anitpodes. Straw people. Thank God I grew up with a pencil, and eraser, and stiff teaching with mental arithmetic. 😁
nb. I might be misremembering. Don't you love the modern propensity for turning everything to your advantage? Nothing is wrong now. (Loud voice: oh yes it is)
Thanks for the laugh, dear Henry. Have a great day. Watch out for the holes in the bucket.
Seriously, may all those for whom this special day in UK is one to be treasured make the most of it.

I’ve never seen a brown cow,
Someday I hope to see one.
But I can tell you anyhow,
I’d rather see one than be one.

A take-off of a Shel Silverstein poem I was required to memorize at school 50 years ago(!) and have never forgotten!

If you will permit me to take a tangential route . . . the Camino can never be full as there can never be too many pilgrims even if there is no lodging and it is pouring cats and dogs. The Camino is limitless even if there is no lodging, no food, and even insufficient water. The spiritual aspect of the Camino far outweigh any physical/material concerns, at least to my way of thinking.
