Today's feast of feats

Go tell the Spartans, thou that passest by,
That here, obedient to their laws, we lie.


Thanks to you friends all who have made your contributions to the originally mooted single day of Culture Wars by celebrating some of what is good in our civilisation and to hell with the ranting already.


The posts are all superb in their own special ways – stuff I’d never heard, or only heard of, or seen, or not thought of as part of our culture at all…Or forgotten.


There’s true variety here - as opposed to the conformist and State-sponsored and State-censored ‘diversity’ and as promised I’m going to link to each one below with what I alone fondly think of as my wit. Ignore my quips; I choose not to help myself, but the others have played some blinders.

Thank you all again for showing once more what a good world we live in; a world that that our forbears made…


Counting cats. Music beyond the merely wonderful.


Fighting talk from Pavlov’s Cat, and some of Britain’s best fighters.


Edgar Egg, fine writing about freedom and dissent from a Twentieth-Century classic.


Julia on the million-ton Imperial glory that looked to the future and to the ancient past with pride and confidence.

Tomorrow she promises ‘C is for Comic’, and I’m betting she doesn’t mean Ben Elton…


From Goodnight Vienna.

One about the wealth of what we still have…


And my front ear from Man in a Shed: father of Dextrosphere theme posting…


Please feel free to carry on posting any under the #culturewarstheculture tag if you wish: I’ll keep looking and linking all week. It’s done me good to see some of the soaring glories and tiny treasures they’ve posted about today.


My efforts will go on till Friday or Armageddon, and it’s is much shorter than anyone else’s.


Story of my life, really…

I'll try to get another post in this week. I'd like to try something that I feel I have a little more capability of commenting on. [Thanks for the considered comment: I gave a short response to it.]

No probs EE - this was meant to get folk to showcase what they hold to be good.
Please let me know so I don't miss it on my recap.
