I'm not sure whether it should count as a  real blog, but I intend it as a general dumping ground for discussions that don t obviously fit elsewhere, or which are hidden about the site but to which I wish to draw attention. <BR><BR>The entire blog and the individual entries use my patent  <B>Note</B> technology which I developed for my more formally philosophical investigations into Personal Identity, which is why it comes with the usual cross-referencing baggage, though the reading-lists are usually switched off. Here is the  <A HREF="../Notes_Jump_5.htm">Jump Table</A> for the entire Blog, which allows quick access to the various sub-topics. One day I may make these tables topic-specific, but currently I think the cross-pollination a potential  good thing . <BR><BR>In the table below, individual notes will say  in the  Reference column  whether they have a printable version. The motivation behind the  <U><A HREF="#On-Page_Link_268_1">unprintable</A></U><SUB>1</SUB><a name="On-Page_Return_268_1"></A> versions  marked as  Note  is the hyper-linking, more relevant in some texts than others. If a word is underlined and followed by a superscript, clicking on the underlined word will usually lead to further enlightenment or obfuscation. Underlining with a subscript links to a footnote within the Note itself. The  printable versions show the level to which the print goes. L0 ( Level 0 ) is just the main Note.  L1 has the main Note and all Notes referenced by the main Note, and so on. If the reading list is carried through to the printable Note, this is shown by  , R . <BR><BR>Some of these entries are discussions between me and an interlocutor or correspondent. Comments that belong to the correspondent appear in a different colour, a rather nasty shade of <FONT COLOR = "800080">purple</FONT>. To allow for candour, I ve in general not been explicit about the identities of correspondents, though those who know me well may be able to make deductions in some cases. If anyone wants their identity revealed (or even further disguised), no doubt they will let me know. I have to admit that this  Notes procedure with interlocutors hasn t worked very well, and fragments the conversation somewhat. <BR><!-- FUNCTOR_ID=14 --> <br><CENTER><TABLE class = "ReadingList" WIDTH=950><TR><TD class = "BridgeLeft" WIDTH="15%"> <B>Date</B></TD><TD class = "BridgeLeft" WIDTH="70%"> <B>Topic</B></TD><TD class = "BridgeLeft" WIDTH="15%"> <B>Reference</B></TD></TR><TR><TD class = "BridgeLeft" WIDTH="15%">2 August 2018</TD><TD class = "BridgeLeft" WIDTH="70%"><b>Tottering Towers & Listing Buildings: </b>This is an account  theoretical as well as practical  of the problems that can arise for those with the responsibility for a Listed Building, illustrated by my own experiences with Coxes Farm.
