– We were both talking about the same person, not the old general, although there may be a war (dance) connection.
– If you want to put your best foot forward, try this.
– Yes Void, 776 was right.
– This was the long-distance runner’s name.
– There may have been a historical figure with the same name as the chap suffering the punishment, and that kind of culinary behaviour seems to have run in the family, to no good end.
– The report of the competition is here…
– …whereas this report seems to confirm *the* title went to Vaclav.
– RIP Don.
– Now, was it Margaretha or the daughter of the North wind who was the snowy inspiration?
– Not Japanese for cute, nor Mandarin for hello, but season’s greetings to you nonetheless.
A polite enquiry: Have you considered all the benefits that SUBSCRIBING to us could bring you? Fame, wealth, and immeasurable good fortune… would be nice, I suppose, but that’s off-topic. Anyway, the links you’ll need are those for Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Acast, or this RSS feed in any podcatching app/program.
