This U.S. military tradition has been finding its way into the corporate and public safety world. So the question is, have you ever been presented a Challenge Coin, or otherwise collect them?  Continue

Zulu (1964)
Breaker Morant (1980)

Favorite films of the week:
Children of Men (2006)

Music
Baroque chamber music, primarily. Occasionally more modern fare such as Mozart string quartets and Hadyn woodwind ensembles may fit the mood. Elizabethan court music also sits quite well. (If I'm feeling REALLY frisky, some good 1890's-1900's rags can do rather nicely- or even some Mike Oldfield.)

"If it's not Baroque, don't fix it." -Lord Mausheim

Progress on the Series I instrument fascia.

Posted on October 18, 2010 at 11:30am 5 Comments

The instrument fascia in my Series I was at one time brass plated by a previous owner. Although it looked quite nice for some time after it was done, in the 27 years that I have known this vehicle, the plating has bubbled and peeled, allowing elecrolytic corrosion to take place between the layers of dissimilar metals. I therefore decided to refresh the offending panel.

Here is what it looked like in the vehicle four months ago:…

Considering a change in my automotive stable

Posted on September 27, 2010 at 12:30pm 7 Comments

This past weekend, I was able to accomplish some (but by no means all) of my long-delayed automotive maintenance needs. I ran the 'Rover up to full operating temperature and exercised the clutch, all while enjoying that peculiarly British scent of warm 90-weight gear oil and overheated electrical insulation. I have made a credible start to my rewiring project in order to make it road-legal for the upcoming winter months, and we should also be ready for new Deep Bronze Green paint by the end…

I've seen Anglican cassocks with that wide opening. I suppose it's all part of the joys and challenges of living the via media that Anglican clergy are either mistaken for Roman clergy when they wear pontifical collars [I'm sure we both have some stories of Anglican clergy wearing pontifical collars while dating their wives.] or for Dissenters in a "yoke," at least States-side.

What's your opinion on "dog" v. pontifical collars for Anglican clergy?

Thank you, old bean. Indeed, apart from Velo Men i must admit Eccentric Gents is the group of my heart. Even above the sartorialists. I mean, surely eccentricity MUST have it's own stiff upper lip at the right angle. One can and should not be called eccentric if one can't ride one's bycicle while wearing tweed and smoking a pipe. I often think that's now most problems in life should be tackled.

Sir, your indiscretion at putting milk into a cup of earl grey can certainly be rectified. Perhaps it is worth considering hiring a new valet?

Recommendations for Clothing Suited to Hot, Humid Weather

Greetings!Although I've often read the material on this site, I never joined it, so this is my first post.I've read the blog entries on dressing for hot and humid climates, and what I'm hoping this community can recommend are specific brands and / or pieces of clothing suitable for summer in the Southeastern United States. I'm a teacher, and I live in Charlotte, North Carolina, and I'd like your suggestions for pants and shirts that are suitable for the classroom, church, and casual events.
