What was that very old song now, I can only remember two lines of it.
“If all the young maidens were ducks in the water
All the young men would come jumping in after”
Ducks chickens and now doors, I really do love old solid doors. RJ used to have his special place to go to when he felt low, he called it “Greendor” If your there now RJ here’s a question for you.
Which came first the door or the gate?
We are told there are pearly gates at heaven’s entrance, gates mind you not doors, when one gets pass the gates is one then led up to the door?
We know cavemen had no doors on their caves, so when were doors first mentioned in the ancient scripts?
When Adam and Eve were expelled from the garden of Eden, were they shown the door or the gate?
They have yet to find a more durable substitute for the door we know and love for thousands of years now. I cannot see these aluminium doors lasting a fraction as long as the old solid wooden doors you see in old castles and churches, absolute works of art in their own right.
I made a calculation and found that if you opened and shut your various doors 180 times a day, and if you were doing it since the day you were born until you died at 100 years of age, you would still be a long way off half a million times, 365,800 times to be exact. Hows that for useless information.
“In Kerala, India, this temple has an unopened door surrounded by sacred mystery. Legends say this door can only be opened by correctly chanting the Garuda Mantra. Without bolts or latches of any visible kind, the sealed doorway is protected by two stone cobras.
If the door is opened by means other than the right sound waves of the chant, catastrophe will be unleashed, of an apocalyptic nature, not only over India, but the whole world. Sounds like the perfect Indiana Jones or Lara Croft film plot”
“Close the door they’re coming through the windows” Quote from the original film “Night of the Living Dead”
