Although I never met Patrick O’Brian I have read all of his books and I think it’s clear that his intent was to live for his full Biblical span of eight hundred years and to write a volume about Jack Aubrey and Stephen Maturin every year. He’d have slowly worked his way through the nineteenth century and into the twentieth, we’d have read about their adventures in sailing ships in the Great War, and rescuing people at Dunkirk. Eventually he’d have yielded to history and advancing technology and taken them into space and had them fight against aliens and study the fauna of new planets, always keeping in mind the career of Lord Cochrane and the actual historical accounts of battles and the progress of natural history. I feel sure of this because he died so young, at a mere eighty-six, a few chapters into this new volume, starting new plotlines, dangling new hares, with not the least idea of ever coming to an end.

This is why you need to pay attention in naming your children.

So I just realized that in Westlife’s video of ‘Uptown Girl’ that Hornblower, Lieutenant Eccleston, and Bingley from Pride and Prejudice were in the video.

I laughed my butt of at the notion of it.

saw one of these things for the USA. decided we needed an english version.

When Sir Thomas was Lieutenant … he had the good fortune to attract Lord Nelson’s notice by several acts of gallantry in the dangerous service of cutting-out vessels from the Spanish coast and even then Lord Nelson was heard to say, ‘Tom Hardy shall be my Captain one of these days.’

Francis Seymour (Hardy’s nephew), quoted in Nelson’s Hardy and his Wife, John Gore

It’s got to the point now where I am fully convinced that Nelson just sat about scribbling Hardy’s name in the margins of his logbook and drawing big hearts round it, and there is nothing you can do to shake me of that conviction.
