Monday, 18 January 2016, Pages 291 - 293

We stopped at the perfect place: "Tis perfect." (page 293, last line)

We were treated to
(a) more mathematical symbols: because  and therefore 
(b) grammar: half a sylb, helf a solb, holf a salb
(c) yet another Joycean version of the aria from Verdi's Rigoletto: pi u la gonna e mobile

Important to note:
We shall go to have a drink after the reading next Monday (25 January 2016) to wish good bye and good luck to Talia, the current scholar at the Foundation. Nikki has offered to reserve a table at the pub.  More details on Monday at the reading. It is hoped that many of you will join.
