Re: The arrival of Wiseman #3 and Wiseman #”“1

Keen students of www.jdawiseman.com/author.html will have noticed mention of ‟Anastasia, born in … 2011”, and also that ‟The author … is soon to be the Head of UK Rates Strategy at Société Générale”. It seems appropriate to celebrate the arrival of Wiseman #3, and the arrival (in London) of Wiseman #−1. (If the children are #1, #2, and #3, then SCP-DFF must be #0, making me #−1.)

For this event I have devised a stellar new theme, which will surely meet with general approbation, and matching placemats. The placemats will be uploaded as soon as they have a filename, which will happen once there is a date. So we need to choose a date.

It seems likely that my new professional schedule will allow most Mondays and Tuesdays from 24th October until early December. Who would be available for which dates?

Congratz to JDAW!

Will you have a hand in starting Société Générale 's port wine fund seeing they have a bordeaux wine fund?

outstanding news, on both fronts. Will Wiseman -1 be available on Oct 11th to celebrate? As I shall be in London then. Otherwise I shall have to raise a toast from a remote location some hours later.

Congratulations on both counts :D
We raised a glass to you and your newborn in absentia when we heard the news last night at the offline and am sure will do so again in person.

Phil.

edit for dates:
- Oct 31, Nov 1 are both possible
- Nov 7,8 maybe
others between Oct24-early Dec not viable for me.

Congratulations Julian!

Does this mean that the 25th of October is your preferred date for this event?

To placemat or not to placemat, that is the question.

And this event is to have placemats. Therefore they must be different events.

I am not available on 24th October. 25th October is likely to be the Ronnie & Stevie offline given your preference for Tuesdays over Thursdays.

31 Oct and 1 Nov would work for me. As would 7, 8, 14, 21 and/or 22 Nov.

Later Mondays and Tuesdays in November and throughout December are unlikely to work for me.

I can't do 1 Nov. At this point Tuesday 8th is ideal for me as I have a meeting in London that afternoon.

Congratulations, Julian!

As with other tastings, I might have to wait until a little nearer to the time to confirm. All things being equal, however, I would, of course, be keen to attend.

Given a day or so of notice, placemats can be made.

Note the use of the passive: jdaw1 must have negotiated to have a placemat-making-wallah as an assistant as part of his contract.

In the absence of objection, indeed, in the absence of much acknowledgement of the question, let’s call it Tuesday 8th November. Placemats to be uploaded soon. Who’s in? JDAW. DRT. RAYC. AHB. Who else?
