    Looks short on parking. Could offer valet service though, I suppose. What am I saying, what sort of half-baked renaissance doesn’t have valet parking.

    Good point. I think the important thing is to commission a tapestry or embroidery to commemorate the event. I'm hoping that Tracey Emin will oblige. Parking problems could be one of the themes.

    God knows Indiana needs a renaissance. But then, so do 1001 other post-empire agglomerations of peasant hovels, many of them selling cigs well above state minimum prices. Iowa, for example; it's just tragic.

    We'll need fancier clothing too. Let's see, who here fits the costume?

    This time around, the cod piece has to match reality. Pumpkin pants, anyone? Better get used to ruffles and cod pieces.

    No problem, I hear that cod pieces are making a comeback anyway.

    @Jamal

    I got one of my every-so-often emails from our friend Marco trying to get me to help him open an account. I see that an "invitation code" is required to join now. Thanks a lot Marco you little twerp.

    How do people with a legitimate interest in the forum get a code? I see there are a few recent new members.

    Can a new member be not recent, or a recently joined member not be a new member?

    There was a radio station in Toronto that specialized in new music. And at Christmas time in Toronto all stations played for 48 hours (minus commercials time) the best of their genre. So this "new music" station declared ahead of Christmas, that they will play "the best new music of all times."

    Maybe it was a joke. But I thought it was a joke.

    After we've done the Renaissance we can go to Enlightenment Street, Las Vegas.

    Perfect. They are even building a new house that we could use for the purpose.

    People who bought the Renaissance also enjoyed the Enlightenment. The first one was held in Scotland, I believe. Did I get that right?
  • Cuthbert

    Great idea. That's a bus, right? As in "...boarded a Greyhound in Pittsburg", Simon and Garfunkel. But it reminds me we need to check valet parking and dog-friendly facilities.

    True. Perhaps Scottish intellectuals were more inclined to share cutlery with France. Perhaps this new Enlightenment can be a fresh start in so many ways.

    Hell's teeth. I wasn't getting at you. Did I sound like a school marm? :yikes:
    I love the way the Shoutbox works sometimes to lighten the load.
    The humour is appreciated.
    It can also be a springboard for ideas that perhaps could do with more attention.
    Your thoughts and questions intrigued me.

    Yes. If anything, this is where we see the vicious anti-Scottish prejudice rear its ugly head:

    I'm offended! Porridge and custard were the original fuel of the philosophical revolution that propelled us into the modern age.
