The Queen of England is 90. SJ Dodgson. MJoTA 2016 v10n1p0421

The Queen of England is also the Queen of Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, plus Australia, New Zealand, and a handful of other countries. When she became queen over 60 years ago, she had more subjects. Which is beside the point.

The real point is that the queen has kept going, kept healthy, kept working until she was 90, and gives no signs of stopping. I have not seen her use a walker or in any way give an indication that age is slowing her down. She is the longest-lived monarch in British history, and has reigned the longest.

Happy birthday Queen Elizabeth II!!!!

The white rabbit SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2016 v10n1p0601

My grandfather's uncle Campbell Dodgson CBE was the Oxford tutor of the love of Oscar Wilde, Lord Arthur Douglas, whom Uncle Campbell introduced. Uncle Campbell always wore white suits and was dropping things and looking at his pocket watch. 

My brothers and I were told by various Dodgson men that Uncle Campbell was likely the model for the white rabbit in a book written by another Oxford Dodgson, a third cousin of Uncle Campbell and my great grandfather. Which is impossible, Alice in Wonderland was published before Uncle Campbell was born. I am quite sure Uncle Campbell irritated his third cousin immensely. I know Dodgsons.

Uncle Campbell married the daughter of Professor Spooner, who invented Spoonerisms, and was the curator of prints at the British Museum for about 50 years. He was an expert on Duehrer. He died 2 years before I was born. Campbell Dodgson click here.
Episcopal Church kicked out. SJ Dodgson MJoTA 2016 v10n1 p0114

Just when we thought the British Empire could not collapse any further, it did, today, when Anglican priests gathered at Canterbury and voted to boot out America. So there. Or rather, the Episcopal Church, which is, or was until today, the closest relative in the United States to the worldwide Anglican communion. Anglicans in the US will disagree with me, but look at the numbers. The Anglican church is nothing like as large as the Episcopal church, which owns lots of churches, lots of property.

And why? Because, like the Republic of Ireland, the whole Republic of Ireland, the Episcopal Church recognizes, and celebrates, all marriages between committed humans.

Aagh. The Anglican Church is the religion of my fathers, in fact, I was christened into the Anglican Church in Ireland, and confirmed Anglican in Australia. Many of my relatives have been priests, for example, a former Bishop of Norwich click here, and my relatives are priests to this day. 

This homophobia is not universal with Anglican priests. A prominent Anglican priest, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, wants us all to treat all humans with respect, and rejoiced when his daughter, a priest, married her partner. Archbishop Tutu click here.

We need young persons coming up through the ranks of the Anglican Church to right this wrong. Kick out the Americans by all means, but learn to love one another. We are all we have.

What if tech tried to be healing instead of just addictive? | Rohan GunatillakeWhat

Whether you are a giant global platform or a hip new startup, the most important first step in your business plan should be to care about mental wellbeing

Despite the growing research into the negative impact that screen-based technologies can have on wellbeing, the trick the tech sector people have somehow pulled off is that they have made it our problem, not theirs. We are told to try things such as digital detoxes to learn how to use our devices in more balanced ways. My own work includes helping people include their technology in how they understand and practice mindfulness. However, both these approaches still makes it our problem while ignoring the root cause.

HMS Queen Elizabeth aircraft carrier sets sail for the first time

The £3.5bn cost of the vessel is so high that doubts have been raised over whether the Royal Navy can afford enough fighters for it

Captain Jerry Kyd seems remarkably relaxed given he is scheduled on Monday to take to sea for the first time one of the biggest and most expensive defence projects in British history, the aircraft carrier HMS Queen Elizabeth.

To reach open sea, he will have to conduct two complicated manoeuvres, firstly to take it from the Rosyth dockyard basin where the carrier was built and then under the three Forth bridges. The calculations are fine but the prospect of miscalculation does not appear to scare him.

Legal aid cuts leave residents no way to challenge poor housing | Liz Davies

The Grenfell Tower action group had no access to legal aid. Residents at risk in their homes want straightforward, enforceable legal remedies to keep them safe

Among the many heartbreaking details of the Grenfell Tower fire is the fact that the Grenfell Action Group raised concerns about a fire risk in 2013 and earlier this year, and that residents tried to find legal advice but no legal aid was available.

Cuts to legal aid in the 2012 Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act has restricted housing legal aid since April 2013 to legal actions where the aim is “removal or reduction of a serious risk of harm to the health or safety of the individual or a relevant member of the individual’s family”.

Why Brexit will be a watershed for the UK’s food and farming industry | Felicity Lawrence
Leaving the EU is a chance to reform the biggest sector of Britain’s economy. But is Michael Gove up to the job, or will he be hamstrung by free-market dogma?

There is a rather large piece of unexploded ordnance in the middle of the Brexit talks, which kicked off last week. It lay buried through most of the referendum campaign – but if not skilfully defused, it could go off with devastating consequences for our food system.
