Week of the Week II

May 22nd, 2007

Another week, so it’s time for another week of the week! This week’s week is not too weak. It’s 9-15 April 1933.

Sunday 9 April 1933 – Walnut Valley Motorcycle Club holds a race in Winfield, Kansas, where Pete Petross takes third place in the time trials on his Henderson Super X, scoring 38.2 seconds.
Monday 10 April 1933 – Ernest Jones wrote a letter to Sigmund Freud, saying it was a pleasure to hear “your manly and firm tones in these difficult times”.
Tuesday 11 April 1933 – Edward Elgar conducted a performance of his own music which was recorded for release.
Wednesday 12 April 1933 – Montserrat Caballe was born, and later went on to become a backing singer with Queen.
Thursday 13 April 1933 – the American premiere of an English translation of Brecht’s play, Die Dreigroschenoper.
Friday 14 April 1933 – the milk price war continues in America, with shops selling a quart of milk for as little as 7 cents.

Another wonderful week! What are your memories of this highly emotive time?

    Hoping to be born in the next fifty years. I only just managed it mind. Was a closie!

    Personally I hated this week, my pet iguana, terry, had just died and my lemons were set upon by a vicious gang of limes… sad times, sad sad times

    Yes, in the 1930s fruit tension ran high. Thankfully the citric treaty of 1943 brought the violence to an end.

    And let’s not forget that while the lemons helped the limes in the Fruit War 1, the limes helped the lemons in the Fruit War 2.

    Everyone forgets that part. Their contribution was just as noble.

    Absolutely. The Tomazis, claiming to be true fruit when everyone knows they are lowly veg, were thrashed on no less than two occasions.

    They won’t be back, thanks to the loyal fruit army.

    Indeed, it makes you very proud to be a keeper of the fruit.

    I think it’s appauling that there’s no day to commemorate such an occasion. Is a petition required do you think?

    Obviously I can’t write to Tony Blair with my foot again so we’ll have to come up with some other suggestions.

    How about you do a Fathers For Justice style protest, stood on top of Garforth Medical Centre dressed as a giant lime?

    Given that Kev is our Leeds operative, I think he just volunteered himself.

    I await video footage.
