Once more unto the breach

Enter KING HENRY, EXETER, BEDFORD, GLOUCESTER, and Soldiers, with scaling ladders.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more, Or close the wall up with our English dead! In peace there ‘s nothing so becomes a man As modest stillness and humility; But when the blast of war blows in our ears, Then imitate the action of the tiger: Stiffen the sinews, summon up the blood.

And so off I go into the dead of the New England winter to rendezvous with brother Johnny and make assault upon the house of Yankee.

To Boston today, Jaffrey Center tomorrow, Dublin on Monday. We’ll be at Yankee until Friday, with a brief sojourn into Harvard for DaveNet Live on Tuesday. It’s 18 degrees F in Boston this morning, and 10 degrees F in Dublin. So we’re not going for the weather.

More reports from the road as the week progresses.

Oh yes, by all means if you are wandering down there, do not hesitate to Cry Havoc and let loose the dogs of war, etc, etc… I have no doubt it will do them all sorts of good to see a passel of Rukavinas, their loins girded. Do not forget to take an ample supply of asses’ jawbones (the Island can probably spare a few from its well-filled armoury).
