BLOOG thursday Nov 11, 2004
My body woke up at 300 am with a very itchy scrotum – the only certain cure is a wash with very hot water – sprayed with the telephone shower head gradually increasing the temperatuire to the border of pain.
Scratch unil you bleed and it still itches !
Washed my hair - my pony tail is about 12 inches and curly – my daughter asked when I cut it last but I honestly can't remember.
So afterwards put the radio on - Through the Night relayed by statellite from BBC London
but with Danish announcements And with the tv with sound off
AHA good timing for
Die schönsten Bahnstrecken Deutschlands
Fahrten im Führerstand
Die schönsten Bahnstrecken Deutschlands
München - NürnbergARD(Hbg.)
which is one of my all time favourtie cult tv progammes
I always feel so peaceful after watching the geometry of the tracks going to the vanishing point.
We are driving out of München on an electrified railway on ARD germans tv at 0425 am . The clouds are high feathery icy stratus in a mostly blue sky warning of an aproaching warm front.
A big infrastructure about 10 or more tracks wide. Enormous high cast concrete signal box as we exit the station..
A gable of quick german on the 2 way radio in the driver's cab - a number ID or call sign – acknowledged - and maybe a warning from the central controller and an acknowledgment - OKEY DOKEY suddenly the familar words are understood – we can learn any language by listening first - the natural method.
Now 4 tracks then 3 with a siding or passing place to the left. We keep rightin germany - the railway land is wide allowing one or two tracks to be added if needed with more of a shubbery than a six foot way.
A four track suburban station . The landscape is mostly villas, detached houses or 2 family houses (semideatched in english englsish) A three chimyed power station, a row of flats then then on two tracks out in rich arable fam land -all the trrees lok young like a thirty year old greening.
Die Schönsten Bahnstrekken is available on video, may be dvd
and over all too soon.

My mind is catching up, breakfast of the usual pills, strong Mocca brazil coffee, rolled oats sprinkled with sultanas and skim milk
I like muesli but it is too rich with sugar and fats to be really healthy
Arafat is dead. I am always against violence and war but I admired him. Stickability is an essential quality in artists too - not only in soldiers and politicians. Terrorism is wrong even if the cause is just and Israel should remember that too - their own berginnings with the Stern gang..
Born in Cairo in 1929 but raised in Jerusalem maybe to be buried in Cairo 2004 if there is a family grave.
A good day for the newsrooms - they love to have breaking news.
I look forward to reading his obituary in the London Times
A norwegian who spoke on BBC World Service radio, outlined Arafat's carrier very clearly and sorted it into several stages, the guerilla leader, and after the PLO recognised the state of Israels right to exist, he became the political leader. One of his secret accounts was set up by Israel in order for them to contribute !
The other bank accounts were more in the style of a mafia don using money to control his organisation and were a survival of the ways of the guerilla leader.
Only in the last four years did his words and actions begin to be a little disconnected and a correspondent suggets Arafat could have lived longer if he had been allowed by Israel earler to travel for medical attention.
I like the compromises over the funeral in Cairo, where he went to university to qualify as an engineer, a private and a public memorial service, at two mosques then to be buried in Ramallah in soil brought from the by the Mosque on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.
His place of birth is said to be uncertain and as a genealogist I wonder if civil registration existed in Britsh Protectorate of Egypt 1914 to 1922 and if it was continued under the new King of Egypt.
