I’ll be 44 on my next birthday… the same age that Francis Bacon was when Guy Fawkes did his homemade chemistry experiment in 1605. Amongst other things, Frances Bacon is known as the father of modern science methods. He also had a lot to say about a lot of things….
“Nothing is pleasant that is not spiced with variety.” Bit like the Tea Ride then…..
“Silence is the virtue of fools.” Just as well we are a chattery bunch then…
“Write down the thoughts of the moment. Those that come unsought for are commonly the most valuable.” The average Tea Ride post then – definitely “of the moment”….
“No body can be healthful without exercise…” Need I say more?!
“People usually think according to their inclinations, speak according to their learning and ingrained opinions, but generally act according to custom.” And it’s our custom to be out on 2 or 3 wheels at 10am on a Saturday morning….
So, as per custom, see you at the Rose & Crown by 10am, ready for some pleasant exercise and, in the interests of variety, we shall be venturing out for BACON sandwiches. (GLUTEN FREE type people, please bring a bread substitute as I can’t guarantee they will have that bit covered!!)
