"Begin at the beginning,and go on till you come to the end: then stop." (Lewis Carroll, 1832-1896)

Alice came to a fork in the road. "Which road do I take?" she asked."Where do you want to go?" responded the Cheshire cat."I don't know," Alice answered."Then," said the cat, "it doesn't matter."

"So long as I get somewhere," Alice added as an explanation. "Oh, you're sure to do that," said the Cat, "if you only walk long enough."

"All right," said the Cat; and this time it vanished quite slowly, beginning with the end of the tail, and ending with the grin, which remained some time after the rest of it had gone. "Well! I've often seen a cat without a grin," thought Alice; "but a grin without a cat! It's the most curious thing I ever saw in my life!"

Like Arthur Dent from "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy", if you do not have a Babel Fish in your ear this blog will be completely unintelligible to you and will read something like this: "boggle, google, snoggle, slurp, slurp, dingleberry to the power of 10". Fortunately, those who have had the Babel Fish inserted in their ear, will understood this blog perfectly. If you are familiar with this technology, you will know that the Babel Fish lives on brainwave radiation. It excretes energy in the form of exactly the correct brainwaves needed by its host to understand what was just said; or in this case, what was read. The Babel Fish, thanks to scientific research, reverses the problem defined by its namesake in the Tower of Babel, where a deity was supposedly inspired to confuse the human race by making them unable to understand each other.

"I lost my heart. I buried it too deep under the iron sea.."

Keane: ~ "Under The Iron Sea"
Just a small plug for one of my favourite bands at the moment, Keane. Keane is a 3 piece band from Sussex, England. Under The Iron Sea is the second album and the follow-up to their album Hopes and Fears. The title of the album is derived from the lyric "I lost my heart. I buried it too deep under the iron sea," which appears in the ninth song, "Crystal Ball".
If you have heard of "The Battle Of Hastings", this famous battle occurred in the town of Battle, which is the band members' home town. At the Battle Of Hastings in 1066, the the Normans of Duke William of Normandy (or William the Conquerer) defeated the Anglo-Saxon army led by King Harold II. The Normans or Norsemen were a mixture of the indigenous population of Neustria and Danish or Norwegian Vikings.
The Norman influence can be seen on Keane's album "Under The Iron Sea" which depicts waves with viking-like horse's heads on the crests of the waves. The viking ship was called a longship or drakkar. It was also called a "dragon ship" by its enemies. It was the specialised, powerful warship of its day. The ships had names which reflected the shape of their prows, like "Long Serpent", "Snake of the Sea" and "Horse of the Home of Ice".
