Jerusalem In Japan.

It's  the rugby union  World Cup final tomorrow  morning.  Hope England win.  It's not rugby league, cricket or 1966, but it will still be a wonderful achievement to see England win the World Cup for a second time.  No Johnny Wilkinson to kick it to victory this time.

I hope they play my old mate William Blake's Milton composition or Jerusalem the hymn by Sir Hubert Parry.  It's far better than God Save The Queen.

The hymn mentions Jeus coming to England's  green  and pleasant land with his uncle Joseph of Arimathea.  They visited Glastonbury (the town not the music festival,  Stonehenge and Cornwall.  He also mentioned  the 'dark satanic mills'.  He must not have liked the Industrial Revolution.  Can't  say I would of either!


Any way her is another version of the great hymn:

Good luck lads!

  2. Hi Linda. Yes I saw the All Blacks beat Wales on the news. I would love to visit Japan. We've been watching a brilliant series on Japan and presented by Joanna Lumley. I still think Purdy when I see her. Should be an humdinger of a final tomorrow.

    Hope your dieting goes well. I had many years of dieting but thankfully I don't need to bother now.

  4. Yes it was a disappointment Valerie. Think the last two games took it out of England. Never mind at least they got to the final. Thanks.

  5. Legend has it that Joseph of Arimathea game to Britain on a fleet of ships with 500 followers and I presume the disappeared Jesus who had been placed in Joseph’s cave/grave. This would make sense because the Jesus/Arimethea group would have no future in the holy land and the Romans controlled the Mediterranean land from Galilee to the Pillars of Hercules

  6. Hi Gwil. Yes it's an incredible story. Apparently Joseph of Arimathea stuck his stick in the ground at Glastonbury and the stick rooted and grew and descendents of the thorn tree are still there. Thanks for the information Gwil.

  7. FINALLY FREE FROM HERPES VIRUSI thought my life had nothing to offer anymore because life became meaningless to me because I had herpes virus, the symptoms became very severe and bold and made my family run from and abandoned me so they won't get infected. I gave up everything, my hope, dreams,vision and job because the doctor told me there's no cure. I consumed so many drugs but they never cured me but hid the symptoms inside me making it worse. I was doing some research online someday when I came across testimonies of some people of how DR ADIGBA cured them from herpes, I never believed at first and thought it was a joke but later decided to contact him on the details provided and when I messaged him we talked and he sent me his herbal medicine and told me to go for a test after two weeks. Within 7 days of medication the symptoms disappeared and when I went for a test Lo and behold I was NEGATIVE by the Doctor Who tested me earlier. Thank you DR ADIGBA because I forever owe you my life and I'll keep on telling the world about you. If you are going through same situation worry no more and contact DR ADIGBA via dradigba@gmail. com or WhatsApp him via +2348077875210. he is good too to cure all type of disease and virus. 1 HIV cure 2 cancer 3 diabetes 4 hepatitis 5 herpes. You can contact if you are having any problem...

Texting Instead Of Talking.

 I have noticed people texting each other even when in the same room.  The younger generation are very good at it in fact. When we went to T...
