If anyone has £12.95 to spare perhaps they might check it out for the benefit of the rest of us.

I had a look. But it says :

Usually dispatched within 1 to 2 months.

My financial director doesn't usually give me permission to buy something that doesn't exist yet.
Is this going to be a very-rare collectors-item limited-edition print run?
New £12.95
Used £99.95

Theoretically it should take 3-4 days. This is driving us mad because it's driving everyone else away. (Or so we assume, perhaps optimistically.) Keimpe reports that Amazon is saying July 17th - August 5th to anyone who orders, which is still ridiculous. Large cash prizes will be awarded to anyone who reports what happens when a book is ordered. To be invested in the next book.

Wonders may never cease. My supplier and Amazon have locked horns and the book will now be 'dispatched within 2-3 days'. If it helps in decision-making, many of the contretemps that have flared up here in the last few months are illuminated in the book, though I don't anticipate any converts amongst those of you who have occupied public positions. That would be against nature.

For those of you who prefer to order through the library -- I approve even if I don't qualify for PLR -- the book is called Meetings with Remarkable Forgeries, by M J Harper, published by Urquhart Press.

Ireland's equivalent of the Michael Line?

Brigid's Way:
a fascinating alignment of ancient sites, connecting the place where Brigid was born with the place where she founded her monastery, an alignment discovered by Anthony Murphy and Richard Moore during research for their acclaimed book 'Island of the Setting Sun: In Search of Ireland's Ancient Astronomers'. Using Google Earth, author Anthony Murphy looks at the stunning precision of the alignment, which runs directly through Mount Oriel, Hill of Slane, Realtoge hill, and the Hill of Tara. It stretches for 65 miles / 105 kilometres.


It has its own website:

There seems to be a collection of these lines that go north eastish. I'm sure I read somewhere that it is significant.

Does this one stretch in the direction of Callanish do you know?

I've added some of the Bridget's Way points to the TME map, and drawn a line between them.

https://tme.carto.com/tables/lines/map

That line isn't very long (so far), but at first glance it looks like (going north) it's heading towards the cluster of TME-significant places on the Kintyre peninsula
e.g.
Ballochroy standing stones
Temple Wood Stone Circle
etc

It looks as if it's heading towards Orkney.

I wonder if Brigid, Briget and Brodgar are related?

For that matter do the Brigantes come into the mix. There were Brigantes in Ireland south of Dublin at one time.

Wiki seems to think there's a connection.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brigantes

And Dublin, which means Blackpool, is more or less opposite its classy counterpart in Lancashire.

Yes, it's finally arrived! Our new book An Unreliable History of the Second World War hits the bookstands on 1st August 2018, a date that will live in infamy. If you don't have a bookstand handy it's here at Amazon

One of Santa's little helpers has just tickled my memory stick. She wants to know if the TME landlords have been naughty or nice, and what to put in their stocking for Christmas.

I've refused to answer the first question (on the grounds it might incriminate me). As for the second, I've suggested a book.

The Ordnance Survey Puzzle Book
Pit your wits against Britain's greatest map makers

Is there any mention of isthmus, causeways, alignments, sacred islands, Venus pools and megaliths? I dunno, it's all a puzzle.

It's all a puzzle Borry. Perhaps the whole of Britain is a causeway island that was once connected to Calais which I believe means Chalky White. Britain was obviously built as a hermitage by the monks of St Michel. So good they did it twice. Ireland was another causeway island, an afterthought linked to Bonnie Scotland by a Giant Causeway.

A bit like Sri Lanka which is also mysterious and is thought now to have been linked to India by a causeway.

They went in for building on a megascale as well.

There's a palace or a hermitage at the top of this rock. Depends who you listen to as to who, why and when it was built but it was apparently discovered by an Englishman in the nineteenth century.

Nice views from the top if that was what they wanted.

Apart from demented patricidal rulers the local population consisted mainly of Yakkas and Nagars. Yakkas apparently lived in the hills and made iron while the Nagars were snake worshippers. The snake god even kept Buddha dry in a rainstorm by spreading his hood over the saintly gentleman.

However, it would appear that the Yakkas or Yakshas were fairy folk or spirits.

Did I mention the Venus pool? Well, call it a swimming pool if you like but they've got one at the top that never empties. But then they were masters of irrigation as well.

The Naga people of Sri Lanka, were a totemic tribe of serpent worshipers[8][9] and the word "Naga" literally means "snake" or "serpent" in Sanskrit, Pali and Tamil. Cognates of the word Naga include Nayār, Nair, Naynār and Nāyakar, which are names of various community in South India.[10] The tribe is also known by the Dravidian term Cheran


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naga_people_(Lanka)

Funny enough the Gaelic for snake is 'nathair' which is the same word as 'adder' and ar n-athair a tha air nèamh means Our Father which art in Heaven.

Adhar is another word for air or sky while athair-nimhe means poisonous serpent.

Nothing to do with Sri Lanka of course but there may be clues in Borrie's puzzle book.
