Did you notice that on the eve of Christmas, the televised news stream from the ‘Holy Land’ showed many western design red and white costumed laughing Santa lights adorning the ‘little’ streets of Bethlehem. Santa in full Coca Cola (R) costume in Bethlehem!
During supper that day, I started to think that if the commercial Santa wins over the Santa Christophe and becomes the main star over there, we are heading for a sticky commercial end to 2000 years of Spiritual (?) development.
Is there an overlap? If there is, who captain’s it – the religious guys or those in business …. or it there an overlap between these two as well nowadays?
It’s a New Year now so best wishes for a different , evolving 2006.
I feel a bit bad about this one because I’m usually very good at giving credit where due but somehow, when the Charity I Chair, World of Water (WoW), received some support from the FGF Organisation in 1981, it didn’t get into our annual summary and get our fullest of thank yous.
We did write a thank you letter, and FGF got onto our eighteenth piece of Charity literature (‘W18’ for officianados of WoW literature), but for some unknown reason, no further. So I thought I could give them a special mention here and say that the blue foam offcuts they gave us were used throughout the Water Palace Exhibition (See Photograph) and many are still in use.
FGF had a base in Birmingham, UK, which is probably still there, but what prompted me to check our annual summaries was seeing their FGF logo on the side of a long vehicle when travelling up to the Earth Centre to perform some live storytelling for WoW
Anyway, thanks once again if you’re reading this and I hope things are going well for you and that you’re always on the look out for newer and more friendly ways to manufacture everything – it’s OK, I always say this to every manufacturer even the fruity ones that are making British Strawberry farming into a year-round industrial pursuit and not an agricultural one (Check it out!)
