Get the right prescription!

The Gospel is the most powerful medicine ever introduced.

It promises eternal life, for gawds sake!

Take the right pill, dammit, or is it the left one?

The problem with medicines is in their delivery. Too often, too much, too strong, too weak, not enough, irritation, allergy, complications, side effects etc. Pharmacists call some of these ‘problems with compliance’. Whichever, it results in the therapy going haywire, and the patient not getting better.

And how the patients complain: Nag, nag, nag, nag ,nag, all the live long day!

To get the right prescription, you need the right doctor, and you also need the right patient.

Your doctor should be devoted to their art, and their patients, well qualified, well read, in good standing with their colleagues, have lots of experience, and a good record of success. Don’t stand for anything less!

You, the patient, must be honest with your symptoms, give a good account of your previous therapies, mention your allergies, and, the most difficult bit, have complete trust in your doctor.

If all of the above are fulfilled, your prescription will be a blessing to you.

But remember, keep taking the tablets, don’t give up halfway through the course. Oh, and avoid counterfeits too.

    That is all very well Burruguru, but I will stick with the placebos, thanks. You know where you are with them.

    Another thing wot I think is we should have more funny stuff on CP&S about the Pope’s visit.
    Like D****n does. Mustn’t let him have all the ‘scoops!’
    Have you all seen the proposed sanctuary for Newman’s beatification at Cofton Park. OMG! Reely cool! All modern and ‘space-age!’ Couldn’t be better!

    That looks like Keanu Reeves in the specs, Brother Burrito.

    It is not at all uncommon for those suffering from moral and spiritual indigestion or dis-ease to obtain their nostrums from a quack – snake oil merchants abound.


  4. Brother Burrito says:

    It is Keanu Reeves, playing the part of ‘Neo’ in the cinematic blockbuster ‘The Matrix’.

    I still rate it as one of the cleverest and most exciting films I have ever seen. I left the theatre with my head buzzing with questions about what I had just seen, a rare experience for me. Shame the sequels were so poor.

    It is the common man’s introduction to ‘maya’ or as we would put it ‘the world, the flesh, and the devil’. Suspend your disbelief, and enjoy it for what it is.


  5. golden chersonnese says:

    “Maya” . . . there’s your Hindu mysticism coming through again.

    Burro, I seem to be having trouble getting my new avatar to appear. I’ve changed it at but the new one never appears on this site.

    Is this something like johnhenry’s posts always ending up in the trollbin? (just joking)


  6. Brother Burrito says:

    The avatar that I can see is an orange dog with a big gaping mouth in front of a jungle background.

    If your new one is not showing, try logging out of wordpress, and back in again. Empty your browser cache, or just wait. Sometimes, there is a delay before WordPress and Gravatar get in synch’.

    With WordPress, it’s a bug’s life. But it is free.


  7. golden chersonnese says:

    Yes, Teresa, that’s the strange part.

    I think it’s time I changed the fierce dingo avatar. People might think I’ve got something to do with the atrocity on you know which other blog.


  8. Brother Burrito says:

    I just clicked on your ‘like’ avatar, and saw you in all your glory.

    With a nose like that, the heretics had better watch out!


  9. Brother Burrito says:

    Yay GC,

    Your new face has gone global!


  10. golden chersonnese says:


    It’s a proboscis monkey which is called “monyet belanda” over here, meaning “Dutch monkey”. I think in Indonesia they even sometimes call it “orang belanda” meaning Dutchman!

    I’ll let you work out why.

    But she does have a certain kindly, pensive look about here, doesn’t she?

    Sorry for all these fripperies on your blog, but it looks like I still can’t get it to appear beside my comments, only on the like button.


  11. Brother Burrito says:

    That’s weird, for a while there your comment avatar was the monkey, but now the dingo is back.

    “I cannae explain it Captain”, as Scottie would say.

    “Most illogical”, says Mr Spock.

    Tell me, Dutch and orange go together in my head (eg William of Orange, Oranjeboom is a Dutch beer). Does orang mean ‘man’ or ‘Dutch’?


  12. golden chersonnese says:

    Sorry burro, orang is man, as in oranghutan (how is it in English orangutang, or something like that?).

    The “hutan” means forest, so orang hutan (orangutang) is “man of the forest”!

    Belanda is Holland. It probably became “Belanda” because the locals made a mistake with the Portuguese word for Holland, which I think is “Holanda”


  13. Brother Burrito says:

    Teresa, mea culpa

    I’ve been a very norty burro, again.
    Without discussing with the team, I’ve gone and written to the Jesuits and asked them to visit this blog, and feed back.

    No doubt, being the clever fellows they are, they will now start turning up in disguise (dressed as arabs?) and putting us to the test. As they paw and rub and ping our baubles, they may also burnish them, inadvertently.
    As Monty Python said, “Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition”. Nor the British one, neither.

    I am such a silly impulsive burro. Please forgive me.
    (And don’t keep leaving the control room’s keys on the kitchen table.)


  14. Brother Burrito says:

    That’s a shame GC,

    You see there’s this bunch of monkeys in bowler hats and sashes, who kick up an awful billy-ho every year, near here.

    In your tongue, they might be called orangorange. Funny bunch.


  15. golden chersonnese says:

    They would be the “Orang-orang Oren”, Brother Burrito (the OOO for short?).
