FIRST SEEING SOUTH NORWOOD COUNTRY PARK LAKE COMPARABLE TO BALBOA’S DISCOVERY OF THR PACIFIC

Who says so………….me in today’s Croydon Advertiser……..and I aint wrong……….

darien

Much have I travell’d in the realms of gold,
And many goodly states and kingdoms seen;
Round many western islands have I been
Which bards in fealty to Apollo hold.
Oft of one wide expanse had I been told
That deep-browed Homer ruled as his demesne;
Yet did I never breathe its pure serene
Till I heard Chapman speak out loud and bold:
Then felt I like some watcher of the skies
When a new planet swims into his ken;
Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes
He star’d at the Pacific — and all his men
Look’d at each other with a wild surmise —
Silent, upon a peak in Darien

    If you find any gold let us know- and leave then indians alone!

    You’re in the Sadvertiser? I’ll try to remember to buy a copy. The Croydon Guardian is a better paper in my opinion. And it’s free.

    I’ll name that Keats in five. Stout Cortez! I haven’t heard those lines in a lifetime. Do kids still “do” that in school? Are there still schools?

    And. ..Is there honey still for tea? Or has Owen Jones eaten the fkg jar.

    Seems Eric Kings lacks vision- I detect undercurrents of tension between the SNTB and the Norwood Society, what with Cumbrian sabre-rattling it’s glaringly obvious that you need to mend fences and unite against the threat from the North, maybe get Ban-Ki-Moon on the blower to settle it before it all gets out of hand?

    Some nice shots of you and rest of the Tourist Board on the Croydon Advertiser website. Little Milton – comment of the week I reckon.
