    Erm, get pissed I think, Ven. How are you and your fellow antipodeans on the guzzling large quantities of beer game?

    On the subject of lunch, BBC News has an article today reporting that Greggs the Bakers have sales at about 72% of this time last year so they consider that a great success.

    From their perspective, yes, but - honestly - is that what we were all waiting patiently for in our locked-down homes for over three months? A sausage roll and a mince pie?

    Sad but true.

    Suddenly my own lunch habits seem quite virtuous ...

    So are you suggesting that a forger was incapable of randomly guessing more or less precisely the Maybrick signature found in his marriage certificate, Caz?

    Hi Gary,

    Quite honestly, during lockdown, I've had to turn my hand to various jobs to keep the wolves from the door. If it wasn't for people with Jane's unfortunate condition, I probably wouldn't be having lunch at all today.

    Not moaning or anything. Just glad to still have a job. Lunch isn't quite what it was pre-lockdown, but I can't complain too much.

    PS For those currently eating lunch, my apologies for the gratuitous scatological allusions. If it makes you feel less queasy, I am of course making it up.

    Regards,

    Ike

    Read postings from Ike? Are you serious?
    I meant the images Ike posted of Mike Barrett's handwritten work. None so blind, eh, Observer?

    I believe you'd look quite attractive in a darkened room
    I'll take that as a compliment. I'd like to look attractive anywhere these days.

    Love,

    Caz

    Eh? Because I pointed out that someone was very good at making JM's signature look like JM's signature?

    That's just a fact, Observer. It's not up for debate.

    Keep up.

    Love,

    Caz

    No, Dundas may have got more than one of Mr Murphy's watches going, but if Dundas didn't remember the large ornate JO inscribed on the back cover of the Maybrick watch, or the clear H 9/3 inside it [engraved after the Jack/Maybrick scratch marks], and then described another watch entirely when asked about it, I'd say he had no chance at all of identifying and remembering a few barely visible scratch marks as 'inscriptions', and was even less observant than someone whose chosen pseudonym is Observer.

    Love,

    Caz

    And have you even read the diary facsimile, in order to make a fair and balanced comparison regarding the spelling?
    Yes I have and there are spelling mistakes

    Read postings from Ike? Are you serious?

    And the watch. Do you think it's genuine?
    I'll save some trifle for you after the LOBSTER is served up, Observer.

    If you don't swallow your lobster, how can you have any pudding?

    Oh yes, it's a genuine gold watch. No flies on me.

    All I know is that whoever scratched JM's signature in it was very good at scratching JM's signature in it.

    It's pointless, I can only think he had a taste of that fluorescent trifle you dish out at tea time before he would do so.

    No, the watch repairer was Timothy Dundas, who claimed there were no such scratch marks in the watch he serviced. Unfortunately, his description of this watch bore no resemblance to the Maybrick watch, which led Feldman to believe there were two watches in the story, while back in the real world it was obvious that Dundas was simply describing the wrong watch.
