The Glasgow Rangers performance continues, their directors now in conflict, Dave King claiming liquidation is imminent, others claiming the opposite. No matter what, it appears that this Friday, 9/3, is D Day certainly as far as the playing staff go. 9/3 tickles my imagination (see previous post) given that 9 is 3 squared.
Meantime, over in Edinburgh, it appears that the giant Ferris wheel which I wrote about (Sex in the City), is now to be positioned at the opposite end of Princes Street Gardens to the Walter Scott Monument. Approximately half way between the two, on the man-made Mound, will see the giant Olympic Ring logo positioned. As noted in the link, surely some sort of symbolic fertility ritual given the proximity of Edinburgh Castle and the Stone of Destiny.
Close to the Walter Scott Monument at the very East end of Princes Street sits the Balmoral Hotel and it's infamous clock - traditionally set 2 minutes ahead of time to assist would-be train travellers to reach Waverley Station timeously. Today the clock broke down due to an electrical fault - blamed on a "third party" - and stuck at 9.05 am. Do the arithmetic whilst remembering that the hotel is where Rowling completed the (occult) Harry Potter series, signing a bust to Hermes in the process. And don't forget the associations with Shoebox Zoo, a BBC/Canadian TV programme featuring a quest to find the occultist/wizard/alchemist, Michael Scot's, Book of Forbidden Knowledge; notwithstanding the Royal Family's Balmoral retreat.
Lastly, something I have not dwelt upon since last April (Suspect Device) is the letter bomb campaign against prominent Celtic supporters: MP Trish Godman, infamous solicitor, Paul McBride, and the club's manager, Neil Lennon. McBride's bomb was allegedly discovered in Kilwinning (location of freemason's Mother Lodge 0), indeed two men - McKenzie and Muirhead - are standing trial for it at the moment. Paul McBride was found dead in a hotel room in Pakistan on 4th March, apparently passing away during the night.
I look forward to Friday, it could well be Black.
