Stu Savory ;-) School report for Stu Savory
Eunoia, who is a grumpy, overeducated, facetious, multilingual naturalised German, blatantly opinionated, old (1944-vintage), amateur cryptologist, computer consultant, atheist, flying instructor, bulldog-lover, Porsche-driver, textbook-writer and blogger living in the foothills south of the northern German plains. Not too shy to reveal his true name or even whereabouts, he blogs his opinions, and humour and rants irregularly. Stubbornly he clings to his beliefs, e.g. that Faith does not give answers, it only prevents you doing any goddamn questioning. You are as atheist as he is. When you understand why you don't believe in all the other gods, you will know why he does not believe in yours.

Oh, and after the death of his old bulldog, Kosmo, he also has a new bulldog, Clara, since September 2018 :-)

Biker Birthday Bash

S aturday afternoon our street was permeated by the sound of rolling thunder as a dozen biker friends (un)surprisingly came to celebrate my 80th birthday. Luckily we had good weather and so could use the back garden. Here are some of my photos.

L2R: Matthias, Andreas, Dieter, the other Matthias.

On the left: Peter and Rüdiger

Frank with Marion

L2R: All in profile, Thomas, Marion, Dirk, Hans-Jürgen

Marion, Matthias, Dieter, Hans-Jürgen, Dirk, Volker, Thomas listen as ...

..... Matthias reads his self-written Laudatio poem.

And I just bask in the sunshine as his Laudatio is read.

After all had gone, SWMBO relaxes in the hammock.

Saturday, June 8


Turned 80 today. Hurrah! Having been ill recently, I didn't think I was going to make it. Subdued party tomorrow, so photos to follow.

Cop Car wrote " Happy Birthday, Stu, somewhat late. It’s my computer’s fault. Knowing that I had a full month scheduled for June, I had input your birthday on my calendar so as to be reminded. Of course, I managed to wipe out the whole calendar and did not get that date re-input. Hope you had a good one, even if you don’t sound as if you are at top form. We octogenarians welcome you to our fold." Thankyou.

Mostly Cajun wrote " Happy birthday, my friend. I’m six years behind you. Best wishes for your next year." Thanks, Dale.
Monika und Bernhard (D) wrote " wir gratulieren Dir sehr herzlich zu Deinem heutigen Geburtstag. Dir alles Gute fürs nächste Lebensjahrzehnt." Ich danke euch.
Jenny (Ibiza) said "You beat me there, well done!" Stay safe, lass!
Anon sent this explanation :

Peter Harris (UK) wrote "Happy Birthday, Octoman!" Thanks.
Dirk R. (B) whom shares with me an obsession with cryptography, wrote " Happy birthday… although, that’s historically and mathematically, long time ago, in some maternity ward. Still an odd phrase/expression. I whish you many more years alive and kicking, but since your still young, you have at least 20 years ahead before becoming adult ;-]..... ....this on one big KL-7 page (fortunately with a menu). See One big KL-7 page . Hoooooowever, If you prefer to polish your motorcycle, no problem." Sold my motorcycle, due to my arthrose. Now have a Porsche 944 Oldtimer.
A couple of dozen bikers turned up (un)surprisingly for a beer etc and several people called on the phone. Photos of the bikers tomorrow.
Billions of Versions... wrote " Happy belated birthday. I'm about 2 1/2 years behind you. " Thanks Mike.

This blog is getting really unmanagable, so I've taken the first 12 years' archives offline. My blog, my random decision. Tough shit; YOLO.

This Blog's Status is
Blog Dewey Decimal Classification : 153
FWIW, 153 is a triangular number, meaning that you can arrange 153 items into an equilateral triangle (with 17 items on a side). It is also one of the six known truncated triangular numbers, because 1 and 15 are triangular numbers as well. It is a hexagonal number, meaning that you can distribute 153 points evenly at the corners and along the sides of a hexagon. It is the smallest 3-narcissistic number. This means it?s the sum of the cubes of its digits. It is the sum of the first five positive factorials. Yup, this is a 153-type blog. QED ;-)
