Chroniclers are privileged to enter where they list, to come and go through keyholes, to ride upon the wind, to overcome in their soarings up and down, all obstacles of distance, time and place.
Charles Dickens - Barnaby Rudge, Chapter The Ninth

On Pavlov, Pavlova, Eric Cantona and Drugs

This is a pavlova

There is a big difference between a pavlova and a Pavlov as we all should know. The need to explain this, however, became apparent to me when I told a mate the other day that he had just displayed a Pavlovian response. I had asked him whether he was addicted to cannabis and his response to this was to ask me whether I was addicted to alcohol. (I presume it is obvious that this conversation took place in a pub.)

Perhaps only Irish males could sit in a pub and have a conversation that took in the delights of pavlova meringues, Eric Cantona, the dangers or otherwise of drug taking, Ivan Petrovich Pavlov, Karl Marx, Søren Kierkegaard and the poet Czeslaw Milsosz. Yes, dear readers, this, my latest Cic Saor, will surely prove to be a mind expanding experience for you all. And sure isn’t that the whole point?
