Title: The First Bob Patterson Grant Part B


1
The First Bob Patterson GrantPart B
2
Professor John Morrill on Oliver Cromwell.
3
Oliver Cromwell A man of great personal faith,
and a great soldier (38 victories, no losses),
but increasingly vicious. He had people who
surrendered on his mercy clubbed to death to save
bullets, and was especially nasty to the Irish,
but he gave everyone religious freedom, even the
Jews, as long as they didnt proselytize.
4
Oliver Cromwell asked to be painted warts and
all, and was. His head had a curious history,
but is now supposed to have been buried under
the floor of Sidney Sussex College, Cambridge in
1960.

Punting boats on the river Cam
16
Marmite on a croissant for breakfast. Very
salty, but excellent in small quantities.
17
Discussion group 2 Thomas KuhnThe Nature and
Necessity of Scientific Revolution
  • Kuhns idea is that, when the paradigm changes,
    the world changes.
  • Newtons dynamics is NOT a proper subset of
    Einsteins general relativity,
  • and the world, when looked at through the new
    lens is no longer the same world.

18
Evensong in the Kings College Chapel, with
Kings College Chorusa transcendent experience.

21
After dinner, an alfresco performance of
Midsummer Nights Dream in the gardens of
Trinity College.
22
The cast was a little hazy at the end, but the
play was great.
23
Marvelous trees in the Trinity Gardens.
24
And flowers.
25
Friday, 15July
1154 train for London, bus round trip 80p for us
old people
26
Local train! Lots of stops. At least its a
first class compartment, BritRail pass French
bread, ham, cheese, and Abbot Ale from
Sainsburys yesterday. Also 12 postcards to
address, and Virginia Wolf.
27
Most of the tube is working following the 7/7
bombing.
28
Intended Jubilee Line headed for Tower Bridge.
Oops wrong way, exit at Baker Street, visit
Sherlock Holmes.
29
A chat with Dr. Watson. A delightful chap, quite
unlike Nigel Bruce.
A number of cases were represented in wax works.
30
A Scandal in Bohemia
31
The Red Headed League
32
Lady Frances Carfax
33
And Professor Moriarity himself
34
Shakespeares Globe Theater
35
No tickets available, but while inquiring about
future shows, a man comes in with a handful of
return tickets. My luck For 20, a front row
center seat in the second balcony for The Tempest!
36
The show was performed with a chorus of 6
37
Three dancers, and 3 actors
Ariel and Miranda, Prospero and Alonzo, and
Caliban and Ferdinand, played by the same actor
38
Chat with Director at Cambridge party reveals his
basis of play
Conflict between Appetite (Caliban, et al) and
Purity (Miranda, et al) is mediated by Reason
(Prospero, et al). Some opportunity for confusion
when Alonzo and Prospero are in dialogue at the
end!
39
There is no roof over the stage and groundlings,
and the play goes on in all weathers. Tower of
the Tate Modern looms overhead.
40
Pre-show repast across the street at Anatolian
restaurant Tas Pide
41
  • The Tempest ends around 950.
  • Great show.
  • Walked across Southwark Bridge,
  • 2 more blocks to Mansion House Tube.
  • District line to Embankment,
  • Northern line to Warren Street,
  • Victoria Line to Kings Cross.
  • Theres GOT to be a better way!

42
1115 train to Cambridge2 stops. First class
compartment to my self and Virginia Wolf. In at
1213, but no bus or taxi at station, so I
walked! About 45 minutes. AND it was Harry Potter
night.
So the book stores were just closing at 1245 AM
as I went by. I got my copy later, at
Waterstones but read it before I left Cambridge.
Good, but I dont like the situation it leaves
Harry in at the end.
43
Saturday, 16 July 2005 Got picnic and great carry
bag at Marks and Spencer. 10 AM Lecture Amazing
GraceSlavery in Literature by Professor James
Basker of Barnard and Columbia, and founder of
the Oxbridge program.
44
Happened by Upper Woburn Place, location of the
bus explosion on 7 July.
45
Royal Opera House in Covent Garden Queue for an
hour and a half in hopes of a return ticket for
the nights performance.
There were about 10 returns, and I was 20th in
line. There WAS a ticket available for 175
(about 325) that no one took.
46
Embankment and the London Eye for the next day.
47
The Lion King was GREAT at Lyceum. Live
animation. Beanie dolls of Simba and Pumba for
the grand kids.
48
A long, late night return from the show
Taxi to Kings Cross station, to find the
schedule is meaningless on weekends due to work
on the tracks.
Rather than one hour to Cambridge starting at
1106, Im taking the 1051 to Hitchin, and
transferring.
35 minutes sitting in Hitchin, then finally in at
1242. Waited forever for a taxi5 taxis for 20
people, so they deliver and come back. Finally
in bed by 130!
