The Last Temptation of John Daniel Begg.

 I am edified to know that I have a Royal companion at my ice cream bar with whom to rub elbows:
Rex Papa Francisco.

      Saint Jane Frances de Chantal Catholic parochial school, called, by anyone of any background, simply: “Chan~al,” a place where, of an autumn day in 1957, school,  for me,  began and ended in the first convening of the first grade in which a tiny nun, one Sister Dom Bosco, appeared before me, just behind the window appearing at far left of this photograph, and piped out this: “I may be small, but so then, is the Atom Bomb.”
      ~~
      My determination to escape school commenced immediately on hearing about this Atom Bomb business and took 16 dicey and arduous years to finally accomplish.~~

      “Jean-Marie Le Pen is a friend. He is dangerous for the political set because he’s the only one who’s sincere. He says out loud what many people think deep down, and what the politicians refrain from saying because they are either too demagogic or too chicken. Le Pen, with all his faults and qualities, is probably the only one who thinks about the interests of France before his own.”~~

  1. Your most delicious post yet, Mr. Begg! Is this a Filipino company? Do they have Jack Fruit ice cream? I fell in love with it while I lived in Japan. Almost 50 years later, my mouth still waters!!!!
