As might be readily apparent, we are killing time here before flying back home tomorrow. Yesterday we walked in the wine country on the north shore of Lake Geneva near the town of St. Saphorin. This part of Switzerland is low in elevation (about 1,200 feet) and so supports vineyards and wineries.
I noticed that the official growing season begins after September harvest with pruning and removal of older vines, and that it is traditionally on the feast of St. Martin of Tours, which falls on 11/11, or if the much older calendar is used, 9/11. (“Nova” is nine, so that “making a novena” is attendance at nine masses in a row, as all current and fallen-away Catholics know, including those of us who never did one).
The insertion of January and February caused the last ten months to be pushed back two months (so that the last four, Septa, Octa, Nona and Deca, 7, 8, 9 and 10, became 9, 10, 11 and 12 .) Quintilus (fifth month) and Sextillus (sixth month) were renamed July and August, but this did not cause the two-month pushback.
Readers might note that in the latest fake killing incident in Charlottesville the license plate of the vehicle used was GVF 1111. Surely that is a tell, a sign that the event was staged. But how far back does this signalling go? St. Martin of Tours is said to have died on November 8 of 397, so at least that far. No doubt many a curious reader or commenter here has notice that Jesus himself is said to have died at age 33.
I simply take it as evidence that history is doctored and those who have rewritten and refashioned it have littered it with markers signalling their presence. That it goes all the way back to Jesus … well, it doesn’t. That simply tells us who controls the story. When was it written? Maybe our astute commenters can tell us,
Here’s the ultimate spook marker:
‘Armistice Day’ (also known as ‘Remembrance Day’ and ‘Veterans Day’) is on 11 November and commemorates the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front, which took effect at eleven o’clock in the morning — the “eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month” of 1918.
Elevens everywhere we turn … JFK on 11/22, 9/11, a shooting of a Red Cross doctor in Afghanistan yesterday at age 38, license plate GVF 1111 …. sometimes I think they make it too easy for us, and am very curious how far back it goes in recorded time. Please give us your insight.
