A 54-year-old woman from the north of England has expressed her dismay after the commemorative Brexit tea towel she had bought just days earlier fell to bits in the washing machine during its maiden wash.
Amanda Dann, a housewife and mother of two from Leeds, told the Yorkshire Post newspaper: “I was gutted when my Brexit tea towel fell to bits.
“It was a really nice one too with pictures of Nigel Farage and British bulldogs on it.
“It wasn’t cheap either. I paid fifty pounds for it from an online company called, The White Crusaders.co.uk.
“They told me that half the money would be given to a pressure group dedicated to driving all the blacks into the sea.
“I can only assume it was made abroad. Probably Africa or one of those other EU countries.”
When it was pointed out to Mrs Dann that the product was manufactured in…
“There is no point in using the word ‘impossible’ to describe something that has clearly happened.” === Douglas Adams
It happened and I let it happen. Not once, twice, or thrice, but over and over again. As impossible as it seemed, I let my life, wait, “let” seems too passive, I actively participated in the over-complication of my life.
Oh, I told myself I was simplifying. I did all the “right” things. I organized, sorted, classified, tidied, de-cluttered…tried to keep only things that sparked joy.
Yet my life felt like I was just moving round those deck chairs on the “Titanic” (there was room on the board for Jack, Rose, remember, never let go?).
Then complications, on tiny clawed feet creep, whether or not I leave them a treat…

This is a post by Aquileana from 07/24/2008 and as I adore her all through my heart, I did save her posts to try to share them now and then as my time allows.
The title is Psychoanalysis: “Free Association and Interpretation of Dreams”: Although, I think that Freud with the power of his basic arguments had been going towards a kind of domestic of his own arts. As we see in his one of the students; Carl Gustav Jung, in which he’d shown in his acting in psycho, the (arbitrium liberali) Free choice, especially in the case of Sabina Spielrein how to act.
But as I believe, Sigmund Freud was and still is a beginner of all our first ever cognition in our dark hidden side, therefore, let him speaks through my lovely teacher’s lips; Aquileana @aquileana 𝕒𝕢𝕦𝕚𝕝𝕖𝕒𝕟𝕒 ★༄@aquileana as I adore her and adore her 🙏💕💖💕😘🙏😘💕💖
The basic therapeutic method of classical psychoanalysis is based on three fundamental processes: Free Association, Analysis of Transfer and Counter transference phenomena and Resistance Analysis. The analysis of these processes is accompanied by framing elements or work rules for the patient (Basic Rule of the Free Association) and the therapist (Abstinence Rule Floating Care Rule). The free association is that the patient must express all his thoughts, feelings, fantasies and mental productions in general, as they arise in his head and feelings without any exclusions or restrictions. Sometimes the analyst urges the patient to associate with the elements that the patient himself has generated in his own speech. The analyst refrains from responding to specific demands of the patient such as comfort, sympathy or advice, and acts as a blank screen or mirror that projects the discourse displayed by the patient himself (abstinence rule). In addition, the analyst should not initially prioritize any component of the patient’s discourse, while maintaining neutrality and homogeneous importance to all the patient’s discourse elements (floating care rule). According to Freud, the dream recounted or subjectively remembered lacks authenticity, since it is a substitute for something ignored for the subject who has the dream. This occurs because that part has an unconscious character for the subject’s consciousness. The dream as a whole is a deformed substitution of an unconscious event whose discovery corresponds to the interpretation of dreams. By means of free association, the subject is instructed not to avoid communicating any idea or memory, however insignificant or absurd or disgusting it may seem, that this element of his own dream provokes. The diurnal remains of the experiences had by the subject on the day before bedtime will serve as material for the unconscious construction of the dream, taking this form of manifest material through his memory. However, the manifest content reaches our consciousness in a distorted and disguised way; It is censored, so it is presented as a manifestation disguised as an unconscious desire. Sleep censorship is responsible for such a result. Censorship rises against unconscious desire. The desires expressed in dreams, as well as those related to neurotic symptoms, have a central aspect of a sexual nature and are usually related to erotic desires lived in childhood or associated associatively with them. Censorship represents the moral instance of the subject, which to his conscience seems reprehensible. Through certain mechanisms, such as displacement, the unconscious desire happens to be represented successively in different images of the dream, in addition to being able to condense by joining or joining several images, thus being hidden from consciousness. These mechanisms of defence against desire, and the disguised form in which that desire is expressed, are those that produce the particular form of each personal dream. Therefore, the method of dream interpretation shuns the universal interpretation of symbols, since each dream refers to the unconscious personal meanings of a desire; I wish that only the subject himself can decipher with the help of the deployment of his associative chain from his manifest content to his latent and unconscious content. However, Freud came to admit that in certain cases the universal decipherment of the symbols (*) could be used. In fact, Freud concluded that in certain cases there are prototypical dreams that can be interpreted by their symbolic correspondence; but only when the subject of the dream is unable to associate freely about its content. In other words, symbolism appears as an auxiliary method to free association, when it is hindered. In this sense, Freud exposes a series of correspondence of sexual symbols and organs; such as elongated, piercing or rising objects of manifest content and male sexual organs or male sexual activity; or the relationship between objects with cavity and protrusions with the female sexual organs.
“Flectere si nequeo superos, Acheronta movebo”.
“Si no puedo inclinar a los Poderes Superiores, moveré las Regiones Infernales”.

An excellent report about a Legendary Man. by Marie Grillot 🙏💖🙏https://egyptophile.blogspot.com/
The great American Egyptologist Herbert Eustis Winlock was born on February 1, 1884, in Washington DC. He followed brilliant studies in prestigious universities, like Yale or Harvard, from which he graduated. At the age of 22, he undertook his first excavations in Egypt. It is the start of a career, of exceptional quality and richness, punctuated by discoveries that will make ‘date’ in Egyptology.
From 1906 and 1931, he led numerous campaigns there on behalf of the Metropolitan Museum.
In 1907, in Lisht, between Daschour and Meidoum, he made excavations on the site of the pyramid of Amenemhat. He found there, in particular, a magnificent female head in painted wood, with a heavy black wig decorated with touches of gold (it will often be reproduced to symbolize Egyptian beauty).
He then worked on the temple of Hibis in Kharga, then on the palace of Amenophis III in Malgatta, on the west bank of Luxor.
Around 1910, he obtained from Gaston Maspero the concession for the Theban mountain, Gurnet Murai, Assassif (with German Egyptologists) and a sector of Deir el-Bahari (with the French) where he notably cleared part of the temple of Mentouhotep.
Then began twenty years of discoveries and restorations carried out by the “legendary Winlock”.
On October 26, 1912, in Boston’s “Trinity Church”, he married Hélène Chandler from an old family in that city. They will have three children: Frances, William and Barbara. They will share their life between New York, North Haven, an island off the coast of Maine and Egypt.
It is on his own plans that were built in Assassif, between 1912-1914, the magnificent excavation house of the Metropolitan, known today as the “Polish House”.
During the First World War, he returned to the United States; he did not return to Thebes until 1920.
It was at the end of February of that year that, under his direction, the Egyptologists Ambrose Lansing and Harry Burton discovered the tomb of Meketré (TT280). For more than three weeks, 200 fellahs recruited from the village cleaned and cleared the site when, on March 17, one of the workers noticed that small pieces of stone were sliding into a crack in the rock. “We had already looked in so many empty holes, told Mr Winlock, that the news hardly moved me. No matter! I lay on my stomach, slipped the torch into the hole, pressed the button and stuck my eye against the opening. Instantly the electric beam lit up a whole world of four thousand years old! Hundreds of Lilliputians came and went on their business. Several brandishing sticks pushed oxen with spotted coats before them. Others, bracing themselves on their oars, manoeuvring a flotilla of boats. A large ship, the bow in the air was about to sink. ” Objects – as incredible as they are exceptional! – will then be shared between the Met and the Cairo museum.
In 1921, in the tomb of Meseh at Deir el Bahari, he found the “Letters of Heqanakht”, a scribe of the XIIth dynasty: they constitute an exceptional testimony on the life of this period … Agatha Christie will be inspired by elsewhere, in 1944, to write “Death is not an end – Death comes as the end”, signing there his only novel not to take place in the twentieth century.
In 1922 Winlock was among the first to enter the tomb of Tutankhamun. In February, for the opening of the third sealed door, he was in the “happy few”, as Howard Carter himself reports in “The fabulous discovery of the tomb of Tutankhamun”: “Friday the 17th, at two o’clock, those who were to have the privilege of attending the ceremony met at the entrance to the tomb. Lord Carnarvon, Lady Evelyn Herbert, Her Excellency Abd el-Halim Pasha Souleman, Minister of Public Works, Mr Lacau, were present Director-General of the Antiquities Service, Sir William Garstin, Sir Charles Cust, Mr Lythgoe, the Curator of the Department of Egyptian Antiquities at the Metropolitan Museum, Professor Breasted, Dr Alan Gardiner, Mr Winlock, – about twenty people in all “… The relations between Winlock and Carter will prove to be warm and cordial and the American will not fail to support the British, especially in the face of the problems he will encounter in 1924.
In 1941, he devoted a book to “Materials used at the embalming of King Tut-Ankh-Amun”. His work will be based on what he was able to “recover” from the excavations of Davis carried out in 1907 in KV54 (Tut-Ankh-Amun cache).
Herbert Winlock will also update the tomb of Neferhotep (DB316 or TT316), that of Merytamon (DB358), daughter of Queen Ahmès Nefertari, whose cedar sarcophagus is 3.13 m high, and that of Senenmut ( TT71).
After being the director of the Metropolitan Museum’s Egyptian expedition from 1928 to 1932, he was appointed curator of the Egyptian department of the museum, then director, a post he held from 1932 to 1939. He was then director emeritus until his death, January 26, 1950, in Venice, Florida, at the age of 66.
For the anecdote, it should be noted that his death had been announced in the press … as early as 1937, the so-called victim of the curse of Tutankhamun! Thus “Le Figaro” of August 6, 1937, under the title “Victim of All-Ankh-Amon” thus introduced a snippet “Death will occur with fast wings for those who touch the tomb of the pharaoh …” thus concluding “Mr Herbert Winlock died of a sudden illness that doctors were unable to diagnose. ” In fact, it was a stroke, which left him with after-effects but did not cost him his life…
The work carried out by Winlock has always been of high quality, praised and appreciated by the Egyptologists who rubbed shoulders with him, such as William Matthew Flinders Petrie or even Arthur Weigall. His excavation books are very documented. They constitute an extraordinarily rich testimony of the way in which the excavations were carried out at that time.
To understand, to approach the truth, he knew how to use all possible means of investigation: exchange of photos casts between different museums, chemical analyzes, medical studies, radiographic … “This taste for integral investigation led Mr Winlock has multiple discoveries, but, without taking into account the details and additions made to the interpretation of the monuments of Deir el-Bahari, that of art or funeral rites, the author’s investigations throw a bright light on the daily existence of a people whose history he tried to reconstruct. “

Tim and Laurie Price live on a magical spot in the Land of Enchantment. Tim shares a lot of fantastic photos at his blog, Off Center & Not Even. I was honored when he said I could “claim” one of the trees at their place. He gave me a choice of some grand trees. I nearly chose that beautiful blue spruce (click over to see it), but the first image (see at the end of this post) of a pair of splendidly gnarly old trees called to me. You can see all of the trees I could have chosen in Tim’s post (link at the end of this post).
