We're taking a bit of a breather while the world rearranges its underpants. Meanwhile, the other blog is here.

Music box

There's been a bit of a reaction to the new mosque on Clubroot Lane. A couple of weeks after they started piping the call to prayer on a loudspeaker, the Abbey Church of Santa Sangria started ringing the Angelus every evening. Not to be outdone, a team of campanologists have taken to ringing a full change of Double Wimseys for Tuesday vespers at St. Barrabas-on-the-Hill.

As I listen to all this palaver I can't help my mind drifting to thoughts of the bookies at Doncaster Races.

Poignant, Kevin. I welcome the bells and I probably wouldn't object to hearing the music of Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan of a morning, but there should be a ban on vocals, surely.

One wonders what the Quakers can do by way of response.
