A Zoolon aside: I took a few pics of the Royal Military Canal running through the town of Hythe just up the coast from me the other day. I’d often wondered what the purpose of the canal was/is. I checked out its history. It runs 28 miles more or less parallel to the sea and was built as a defence against invasion during the Napoleonic Wars with France (1793 – 1815). Work started on 30 October 1804. Digging took just 22 months but the canal was not finished and ready for service until 1812. By then the French Navy had been defeated at the Battle of Trafalgar (1805) and there was no longer any threat of invasion – which makes it a bit pointless, yet not totally pointless as the canal is now a great habitat for wildlife especially in summer when it comes alive with patrolling dragonflies, noisy Marsh Frogs and Kingfishers – not that I saw any that day.


There’s a new star in the heavens
I saw her with my two eyes
She’s going to outdo Mars and Jupiter
That comes as no surprise


When you look up at the night sky
You’ll see she’s wearing a flower disguise
That’s what the new moon told me
And a new moon never lies


‘A New Star in the Sky’

If she’ll have me, one day I’ll travel with her
Give Earth my last goodbyes
Seeking sanctuary like a refugee
In a new land, a new sunrise

Here’s my song ‘Calibre’. I hope you enjoy;

  1. I was thinking that, if the French had landed, having managed to get themselves across the channel, wouldn’t a little canal have posed but a tiny problem for them?

    Anyway, the way things are going on this planet, maybe I’ll join you on your voyage, if you’ll have me?

    1. Thanks. Apparently the canal was the third line of defence – but I’m not clear as to what the first and second lines were. I guess if the French lost troops on the first and second the ones who survived would be knackered by the time they got to the canal. Having said that I don’t think I’d be a successful tactical general ~ George

    1. No worries, Aruna. Time is my worst enemy right now. The music industry, like a lot of others, is dead in the water because of the corona virus. I’m trying to keep my business alive right now, hence I only post once a week. Don’t worry though, when this is all over I might get back to normal ~ George
