Gresh has been kind of mentoring/shepherding anna around for a few years now so i guess he's kind of invested in her succeeding. Fuck know's why he didnt say anything when she ventured off route numerous times though

Is this actually a rock based brexit metaphor? Anna is Theresa May (who seems to have ventured off course) and David Davis has just curled a big one down under the arÍte.

Thanks Dave

I really hope you finally get it as well. However, if so, its a quandary what should happen next, especially in terms of publicity. The Oak effort is one of life's reassuring certainties in a mad changing world.

Indeed. The one thing that keeps me from despair, as sea levels rise, extreme weather becomes the new normal, and the idiots take over the reins of power, is thank God Simon is still trying the Oak.

Indeed. Among all the bad stuff in the world, one mans act of ultimate futility shines out to make everyone else feel better :)

(Love you Shark - keep it up :) )

Sisyphus was a rank amateur by comparison.

Again, though, Iíd love to know you had finished the damn thing Simon.
And (all piss taking aside) your dedication is worthy of much respect.

(Possibly, itís more on the scale of Jan Tregeagle emptying Dozmary pool with a Limpet shell, with a hole in it, but mythic nevertheless).
