Electrocuted again

| Nature and universe | 2 Comments

So there I was innocently attempting to wire the new lamp in place, when all of a sudden...

The spark like a miniature multi-chromatic lightening bolt jittered and then jumped from the pointed tip of the copper wire to my thumb, a jolt of electricity running up my right arm, right across my ribcage (just missing my heart) right across to my left shoulder and then down my left arm disappearing to who knows where -- not me.

That's when I let out an uncontrolled scream which some sinewy synapse in my lower back gave a jerk and made me drop whatever I was touching.

I stood frozen in time and dared not make a sound for fear that I was no longer alive. But I was and I went on and then ...


Actually, I'm not sure if you will want this comment to show, but it is of course up to you:

I am in the process of preparing a new page for my web site. I am a writer, and on this page I will be giving reviews of other people's writing and web sites.

In the first edition I propose having a link to your web site here at Kiffin's Blog. I thought, as a matter of courtesy, that I would let you know, and also let you see a preview of the proposed page. The page isn't 'live' yet, but will be shortly, and you can see it at this link:


If you have any objection to this I would be grateful if you would let me know by return.

In the meantime, my kindest regards and best wishes. (I have commented on one of my visits, apparently before you installed your verification system. I remember it was in response to a journal entry that refered to Radio Hilversum.) :)

Oh, you can email me at:

Sure Allen, I would feel honored to have you include my blog on your site. Thanks alot and good luck with the new stuff.
