Today's tabloid Scottish Sun front page headline screamed : EXCLUSIVE : ANDY MURRAY'S WEDDING DATE, 11TH APRIL.
Since 7.00am when I saw it, the rest of the MSM appear to have confirmed it as factual, it is the correct date, the wedding to take place 64 days from now in Andy's Cromlix Hotel, close to Dunblane where he grew up.
It seems, to me, a rather ominous date to choose, the 101st day of the year.
Remember that Andy was at Dunblane Primary on the date of "Thomas Hamilton's" massacre. He escaped by hiding in the headmaster's office.
During the legal enquiry into the massacre, Knight of the Thistle, Lord Cullen, allegedly received an anonymous letter. It was dated 11th April 1996 and stated :
"It is in the public interest that Lord Cullen be asked if he is a Freemason, given the widely held view by the public that Thomas Hamilton's Masonic affiliation was probably the reason that the Ombudsman overturned an earlier decision by Central Regional Council in 1983 to prevent Hamilton from running youth clubs, and that his Masonic affiliation probably facilitated his application for a gun licence."
The letter-writer said anyone involved in the inquiry who turned out to be a Freemason should be forced to resign - and that included Lord Cullen. The letter went on: "It is far too important to allow the Masonic implication to be whitewashed by furtive operations in the Freemasons, intent only in 'diverting a discourse' - a Masonic ruse - from the involvement of Freemasons and Freemasonry."
Lord Cullen apparently responded to this verbally, stating ""taken aback by the letter" and "not a Freemason, never has been". The Scotsman (Ref 1-1099013)
Meanwhile, on exactly the same date of the same year :
From the Independent dated 12th April 1996: "The Dunblane primary school gym where Thomas Hamilton massacred 16 children and their teacher was demolished yesterday. No more than a pile of rubble remains on the spot"
Also on 11th April :
On 11th April 1689, William of Orange and his House of Stuart wife, Mary, had their coronation. A couple of years later saw the "blood sacrifice" Glencoe massacre, the MacDonalds being executed on the grounds that they had not been quick enough in pledging allegiance to the new "joint monarchs". Jimmy Savile dug Glencoe.
The allegedly Biblical Stone of Destiny, after it's repatriation by law students on Christmas Day 1950 from Westminster, was missing for a few months before, on the 11th April 1951, being left at Arbroath Abbey. It now resides in Edinburgh Castle.
The number 101 pops up in Orwell's 1984 :
You asked me once, what was in Room 101. I told you that you knew the answer already. Everyone knows it. The thing that is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world.
From the movie, The Matrix, we potentially see a 666 (here) :
Q: The number 101 appears several times in the movie. What does it mean?
A: 101 actually appears a number of times in all three films, and though no one knows exactly what it means (if anything), the popular explanation is this: 101 is binary for 5 (which to a computer is the sixth number because computers count from 0), and the events of the three films take place in the 6th interation of the Matrix. Neo is the sixth One, this is the sixth time the machines have destroyed Zion, etc.
Meanwhile there's Aleister Crowley, who believed Boleskine House, Loch Ness,Scotland to be a focal point for energies. Back in 1904, a leap year thus an extra day slotted in to the calendar, Aleister was hanging about the Great Pyramid in Egypt, consorting with an fourth dimensional being/entity/angel he called Aiwass. After 3 days he - Aiwass, utilsing Crowley as a "medium" completed his The Book of the Law. The date was 10th April, whilst we know that the ancient Egyptians were fond of the Sun and it's movements above.
There's one other notable 11th April happening, and that's summer-solstice born, Prince William, receiving his wings from his father. The image below speaks volumes, as do the happenings noted above.
Unless of course, I'm barking.
