  1. I used this word GONGOOZLER as the title of one of my stories (published in the nineties and reprinted in the Prime book WEIRDMONGER in 2003). Then it was a very obscure word (a word given to me by PFJ above), a word that only those with British esoteric canal-speak knew about. It refers to loafers who hang about canal locks watching others strain and struggle with the windlass and the gates.
    But now, I am amazed to say, there is a wikipedia entry! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gongoozler (after googling it)
    I think to gongoozle is a better word than to google! It seems more appropriate.
    You heard it here first. I expect you all now intend to use this new word for the process of googling!!

    This blog’s title is for those who see tombs or gravestones as lock-gates between death and another journey…

  2. Can you see a man in a cloth cap peering between the two main tombstones above?

  3. Cross reference to Golgonooza here: https://dflewisreviews.wordpress.com/2015/12/07/the-siren-of-montmartre-leopold-nacht/#comment-5949
