From Wapping to Stratford in one swoop. Having shaken the tree from the left and taken the directions from the first thing to fall out [in this case, a gopher].

Closing on the 1st of November means All Saints.

(Not bad for me, huh?!)

With All Saints in the ascendency, and evening's lightness befuddling me, I feel the time is right to play Sloane Square.

Nothing for it. Clocks have changed. Darkness closing in ever earlier. Almost Hallowe'en and the All Saints Day. So it's a first Monday after British Summertime Shuffle on a diagonal parametric slide that takes us onto the DLR, then off, then on, and once more off until we reach a Crompton Crossweave (thank you Stephen Fry!) landing us in High Barnet.

Mr Bear, genious, utter genious.

How to follow that, I wonder?

Well, starting at High Barnet, I can shuffle down the line, missing all main line stations, making a dutiful change where required, get out at Westminster, swim across the river [whilst catching a fish in my mouth] and hopping backwards on my left foot [has to be left - Norfields Paradigum has decreed as such] to Lambeth North.

Harumph! In the olden days, one would now play a straightforward shuffle to Shoreditch but that is now impossible - it's a flipping bus!

So one must rethink ones cunning strategy. So what I'm going to do is play the airfield connection.
The first residents of this airfield were Hurris and Blenheims. In 1940 Beaufighters and Defiants came in for night operations. A few Havocs, a few Bostons and then the Spit dominated. In 1942 the airfield was handed over to the 8th Air Force who put in Thunderbolts and 'stangs. The airfield shut down in 1975, finally, but the Army took over.

Know where we are?

Follow the Central Line to Debden and you'll find this airfield, which hosted more varieties of aircraft than any other airfield in Essex. Anyone care to continue with The Aviation Connection?

Utilising a twist double shuffle, and playing the 'inactivity for 20 hours or more' addendum, I find that I end up nicely at Kensal Rise.

Confessions of an ancient MC participant

Oh how I dreamed of using a MacTavish's Revenge . Not a gambit, ploy, nor strategy: remarkable.
Bil Tong the carniverous Seth Effrican, once said. "Stockwell your plans and double them." He only used MacTavish's Revenge once: the lure of the cellar got him; never seen again.
So peoples with regard to your cellar. Stockwell

One well remembers the last time a Revenge gambit was employed at the exhibition game during the 2002 Helsinki Convocation. The scorch marks are still evident on the ceiling of the hotel ballroom and many of their staff continue to receive treatment for radiation burns on the ankles. It matters not that the fire extinguishers were found to be filled with raspberry jelly but the mattress stuffed with human fingernails discovered in the coffee shop definitely raised a few eyebrows.

One will play a Feingartner Slip to

One recalls the fire extinguishers being filled with raspberry jelly (I thought it was jam?), but I didn't get to hear about the mattress. Incidentally, what happened to the penguin?

One is led to believe the penguin was found cowering under a table with a curry soaked handkerchief over it's head.

I was under the impression that the Helsinki chapter of MCers has been banned by the authorities from holding any further MC convention until suitable measures have been put in place to prevent any more occurances like that.
A wee bit harsh, I thought.

But anyway, I digress, Westbourne Park, courtesy of a triple reverse backhanded extrication.

Extravagent, I know...
