Actually Grant, you are quite correct. I should give more of a hint.

The problem with giving hints that are not in the public domain is that
- well, they get you in trouble.

So - all I can say is that two events not necessarily directly connected
(in the eyes of the public) will occur early next week.

One I referred to in my weekend notes.
The other one I shall have to put down to cyclical financial curves,
astrology and Koltai voodoo.

Um in defense of the messenger - well until at least Tuesday, although
many may consider my views extreme or out there, I believe this is the
first time I have ever said out loud, the wooloof is coming, the wooloof
is coming. 

So some patience until after Tuesday is required and I will then be
forever tarnished as a whimsical crackpot, or in the alternative a
whimsical crackpot that does accurate astrological readings.

For those that are convinced that I am already so labelled, I offer a
rasberry in G flat.

Please feel free to flame me on Wednesday.

I shall now go and invest in a flameproof asbestos suit.......
