Sad news for those who may remember Philip, this was posted on FB this
morning:

-----

It is with profound sadness that we have to report the death of our
brother, Philip Eden (Geoffrey Philip Eden), Meteorologist, Broadcaster
and Author, on 4th January 2018. He had been suffering from Lewy Bodies
dementia, but died as the result of head injuries sustained after
collapsing and falling several days earlier. He died peacefully in a
nursing home whilst receiving palliative care.

Please pass this sad news on to colleagues who knew or worked with Philip.

Details of the funeral arrangements will follow in a few days.

Agreed.

Here are two of his posts to aue:

At the risk of upsetting Laura (and others), I have a question.
"Carousel" was the first piece of amateur musical theatre I was
ever involved in, and I remember clearly the words of the
"When you walk through a storm, keep your chin up high."
Googling on libretto sites seems to confirm that. Yet it is
almost exclusively sung these days with "hold your head
up high".
I e-mailed the Rodgers & Hammerstein Organization before Christmas,
and have now received the following reply:
<QUOTE>
I am writing to you in reference to your December 20th email to
Christina Haritopoulos and your questions concerning the lyrics of
"You'll Never Walk Alone."
In the original 1945 Broadway production of CAROUSEL the lyrics
of "You'll Never Walk Alone" included the phrases "keep your chin
up high" and "is a golden sky." In the 1956 Twentieth Century Fox film
of CAROUSEL these lyrics had been changed to "hold your head up
high" and "there's a golden sky." Neither of these lyric changes [was]
ever documented or explained in any documentation which has since
come to light. We tend to agree with the assumption that Oscar
Hammerstein either made or approved these changes for the film.
Nothing else is known.
Thank you for your interest. If I can be of any further assistance

Just got the alumni newsletter from University of Birmingham, and found
https://bhamalumni.org/NetCommunity/Page.aspx?pid=433
In case that page is restricted, the book is "Great British Weather
Disasters" by Philip Eden.
Which I read recently and found very interesting.
Did you find many English usage errors? There are no acknowledgments
which is a sad omission on the author's part; he would therefore like to
take this opportunity to thank in particular Athel C-B for the
suggestion
of the phrase "divine whimsy" which appears on p.7, and Mark Brader
for the brilliant formulation "cenoxeric map", an example of which
appears
on p.163.

You amaze me! I have no recollection of making this suggestion. What did I
mean by it?
Here's the exchange (from Feb 2007):

PE
I'm writing about the formulation "Act of God" as a legal
excuse for incompetence. I'm trying to find a phrasal
synonym that indicates that I am being perhaps gently
patronising.

I thought of "Deitic whimsy" but the word "Deitic" or
"deitic" doesn't seem to exist according to my OED
CD-ROM. Indeed there doesn't seem to be an
adjective derived from "Deity" at all.

Any suggestions?


ACB
I think "divine" covers the meaning you want to attribute to "deitic",
and "divine whimsy" would work as a phrase.

PE
Yes, that will do nicely. So simple. Thankyou. And thanks
for all the other suggestions too.

remember when he was an AUE contributor.

Wikipedia gives a reason why limousines are so called (something to do
with shepherd's caps): I looked it up because I found it hard to
believe that any cars were made in Limousin. Apparently coaches were
once made in Kócs: a Hungarian friend told me once that he found it
hard to believe and that any coach made in Kócs would have been a very
primitive affair.

There are English Limousin cattle here in Warrington - the farm sells
the meat from their on-site butcher's shop. Delicious, indeed.

Ah I see.
A French citizen is an European foreigner that needs to be thrown out,
if at all possible.
A Limousin cow becomes completely English immediately upon import,

There are breed lines for Limousins in England going back
centuries. They are born in England; they're English.

Being French and a human being on the other hand seems
a perfectly reasonable criterion for being thrown out,

It says that export of Limousins (in signifcant numbers)
started in the sixties.

Being French and a human being on the other hand seems
a perfectly reasonable criterion for being thrown out,
Brexit or no Brexit! ;o)
Not a very wise attitude,
given that there are far more Brits living in France
than the other way round.
Something about glass houses and throwing stones,

Sad news for those who may remember Philip, this was posted on
Sad news, indeed (I've also replied on FB). He and I traded
comments relating to my French home, based on the fact that his
mother was a Limousine.
My Mother the Car?
Wikipedia gives a reason why limousines are so called (something
to do with shepherd's caps): I looked it up because I found it
hard to believe that any cars were made in Limousin. Apparently
coaches were once made in Kócs: a Hungarian friend told me once
that he found it hard to believe and that any coach made in Kócs
would have been a very primitive affair.
The Limousin is primarily known as a kind of cow
that produces much better steaks than any English cow,
Even when the Limousin in question is English? You do say some
daft things!
Ah I see.
A French citizen is an European foreigner that needs to be thrown out,
if at all possible.
A Limousin cow becomes completely English immediately upon import,
There are breed lines for Limousins in England going back
centuries. They are born in England; they're English.
Wikip doesn't agree with your inventions.
<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Limousin_cattle>
It says that export of Limousins (in signifcant numbers)
started in the sixties.
OK. Half a century then, which given that cows calve every year is
still 50 odd generations of English Limousin cattle.

And I should care about traitors and collaborators why

Yesterday's crossword in The Times included this clue:
Car and cow collide finally (9).

It is with profound sadness that we have to report the death of our

and Author, on 4th January 2018. He had been suffering from Lewy Bodies
dementia, but died as the result of head injuries sustained after
collapsing and falling several days earlier. He died peacefully in a
nursing home whilst receiving palliative care.
Please pass this sad news on to colleagues who knew or worked with Philip.
Details of the funeral arrangements will follow in a few days.

I did not know him, but "Any man's death diminishes me, Because I am
involved in mankind......."
