ice cold in alex, farewell to may…

Dear diablog,

I am indebted to cousin Philippa


for the following absolutely sensational and beautiful piece of information.
Whilst all at Glynsky Towers swelter in the heat wave consider,

This came from a Rig Manager for Global Marine drilling in St. Johns , Newfoundland … They actually have to divert the path of these things away from the rig by towing them with ships! Anyway, in this particular case the water was calm and the sun was almost directly overhead so the diver was able to get into the water to get this picture. They estimated the weight at 300,000,000 tons.

Yours, diablog, in awe of nature


If I Were a Rich Man

Dear Reader,

Today would be Joseph Stein’s 100th birthday. Joe who?

Joseph Stein is the author of one of the most successful Broadway musicals of all time:

Later he also wrote the screenplay for the movie.

The story was copied from Sholem Aleichem’s Tevye der milkhiker.
Piracy wherever we look.

And this is Zero Mostel, singing the best known song, if I were a rich man:

His hairdo makes Trump envious.

Whistling happily,

Anyone Fancy A 36 hour Sex Ordeal With A German Nymphomaniac?

I don’t know about you but our full time Diablog bigot has not been his usual verbose self over the last couple of weeks.
I am beginning to wonder if it was he, Glynsky, who was the unnamed man referred to in the shocking article that hit the world’s press a few days ago.

For those Diablog readers who have not read the story in question I have shown an edited version of the facts below:

An unnamed (yeh right…) man was found sobbing in the street by police after his one-night stand demanded too much sex.
The man broke down in tears outside the woman’s apartment after the 36-hour ordeal in Munich, Germany.

The woman was arrested after her exhausted lover escaped onto a balcony and cried for help.

Police confirmed that the unfortunate man told them:
“I met her on a bus. She invited me back here. Oh God, it was hell. I can’t walk. Please help me.”

Does anyone recognise our victim recuperating in a Munich hospital bed?

timeless present…

Dear diablog,

It seems ages since any of us recorded anything on a supposed favourite topic – watches. In fact the last mention of them was not a watch but a compass!

So, without further ado, and in the hope it may be of interest to the watch people who read the blog, this was Mme Glynskette’s wedding present to me  – a very long time ago!


This rather handsome (like me at the time!!!) hunter, complete with chain, key and cigar cutter was used quite extensively…

There’s No Such Thing As A Free Ride.

I was so shocked and appalled when some so called friend sent me the video shown below, that I felt the Diablog readership had to see it, to realise  just how upset I was.

I know many of you will find the footage sexist and offensive and not the type of video ‘Glynsky and Pete’ should be looking at, let alone publishing.
However others may regard it as a dire warning to men of all ages not to play around on escalators.

I will leave you to judge for yourselves and apologise in advance for any offense caused.

Can’t get it out of my head

Dear Reader,

My last post about Marley, the movie, and his music went unnoticed by Glynsky. Which was quite a surprise, considering what Glynsky wrote about him here. Picking an early Ska song I had been certain to get a reaction out of our somewhat thick man.

While looking through Ska, I listened to one song, which I cannot get out of my head anymore. Posting it here is my attempt, to get rid of it. Maybe i can pass it on?

The unforgettable Desmond Dekker and Israelites:

Let me know, how long it stays in your head.

Still humming,
