Sheiks and Shebas, welcome back to Jazz Age Wednesdays.  Today I have an all new story for you, from the Pip-verse.  It’s a new collaboration with Chris Graham, the Story Reading Ape! 

Chris is really busy with huge personal projects right now, so double thanks to him for working on this story with me.  I’m also getting ready to start National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), so I will be busy (or overwhelmed).  Anyhow what I’m trying to say is that I left the ending of this story open for a second part, incase we decide to come back to it when things (for both of us) settle down. 

Over the years, we’ve done several short stories for the Pip-verse, adding Chris’ creation, Artie — a most extraordinary ape.  Artie is back!

Hellens – Heart, History and Hauntings

Helens – Heart, History and Hauntings  BY CATHEINE CAVENDISH

Helens – Heart, History and Hauntings  BY CATHEINE CAVENDISH

I spent the first two years of my life in a little village, some 16 miles from Hereford, called Much Marcle. These days Marcle is best known for the incredible success story that is Westons Cider, but back in the twelfth century, the foundations were laid for a house that, over the centuries, has seen more than its fair share of history. Not bad for a manor house in a sleepy little backwater of rural Herefordshire.

Hellens (said to be named after the de Helyon family who were early owners of the property) has changed hands many times over the centuries. Early inhabitants were witnesses to the signing of the Magna Carta. Much later, in the sixteenth century, owner Richard Walwyn was knighted by Mary Tudor…

The steampunk riverboat is here.  Hello, my chuckaboos!  Thanks for coming back to the The Delta Pearl. It’s been a busy week. Are you ready to sink into the soft cushions of imagination and let the river gently take you to extraordinary places?

This week’s random reader things

This steampunk riverboat runs on random “things” from readers. Resa McConaghy provided Tempest Prognosticator.  (What’s that and how does it work? Click to find out.) Across the miles in Ireland, Inese sent Mahogany.  She doesn’t have a blog, but Ginger still gave us a thing from Murphy’s LawWhalebone Corset.

Thanks to Dan Antion  for letting me use some of his photos.   Any of you #steampunk fans who like real life trains will enjoy his latest Thursday Doors post.  Be sure to visit Dan at

Another wonder!

Iranian women have attended a World Cup qualifier in Tehran after being freely allowed to enter a stadium for a men’s match for the first time in decades.

it seems that there in this poor country, soon, another discovery will take place (maybe discovery of fire?!?…) I don’t know if I must laugh or cry 🤨😐

Funny, I think of you often

Standard

I’m still sniffing and coughing (it seems to fit the weather in these days) but the energies are coming back 😉 therefore, please don’t think that I am lounging or lazing around and re-blogging as my illness would be an excuse! 😀

To put it bluntly; to write something is still for me, as an Unprofessional who still needs a kick to get his ghost to awaken to write.

and believe me; this ghost is still really sick 😰 but; as I have got cheerfully to know that one of the greatest writer and adorable friend – MIKE STEEDEN – after a short break has been back again, it was enough to give that kick and made me announce a wonderful book of him; (among the others of course which I am running after them) just to tell that it is a book for our life in this misfortune condition in which we are all living now.

This book made not only my summer holidays much brighter but also my life.

When I read this book, I had to think often, not only of “you” but also on Monty Python’s movies. Of course, there are no similarities there between just the “Meaningful” English black humour which I love it most. A really good tip for everybody. ❤

PS; Another excuse 😛💀Tomorrow, My wife and me have a trip towards Czech, to aim Prague for a few days and I promise to bring some report with pics 🙋‍♂️ ❤ Have a lovely Weekend 😘💖🙏

Pytia in the Adyton (via link)

Is one even allowed to talk about the gods of the underworld? For Rudolf Otto, a twentieth-century theologian, the holy or the numinous manifests in two forms: as mysterium tremendum, which is a mystery that frightens and repels, and as mysterium fascinosum, which we are drawn to despite our fears. The Greek word hieros (sacred) was used to describe votive offerings, the ground on which temples were built as well as ways walked during Mysteries, for example the way to Eleusis, or days on which the gods were present. (1) A person could also be “hieros” if they were initiated in mysteries or worked in temples. Natural phenomena such as mountains, rivers or corn were also believed to possess sacred power. Sacred places were “surrounded by prohibitions,” for example the names of certain gods, especially underworld gods, were not to be…
