There are a lot of people out there with PhDsnow thanks in part to Ronald’s being involved in their work, and that figuremay be a larger number than might appear on any official statistics forsupervision, as Ronald is a friend and mentor to far more scholars, both insideand outside academic establishments, than he can physically supervise, but hasacted as unofficial advisor to plenty. He is also a dear and valued friend ofmany pagans, thus this book is a way for us all to say ‘thanks’.<o:p></o:p></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0cm;text-indent:0cm;mso-list:l0 level1 lfo1"><spanlang=en-us><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0cm;text-indent:0cm;mso-list:l0 level1 lfo1"><spanlang=en-us>In 2008 I visited Bristol University to hear a seminar paper presentationby one of Ronald’s students and at the post-paper gathering afterwards, over aglass of wine, he looked around the <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">very</i>crowded room, and smiled quietly to himself.

In a field (occultism far more than academia)where back-stabbing is commonplace and numerous fragmentary tales battlefiercely for the mantle of ‘truth’, Ronald has managed to navigate a coursebetween most of the more dangerous rocks and in the process avoided upsettinganyone too much. The few exceptions to this (upset) he has graciously engagedin conciliatory dialogue, usually within the Pagan Press, and each time hascome away from the exchange with his reputation enhanced. <o:p></o:p></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0cm;text-indent:0cm;mso-list:l0 level1 lfo1"><spanlang=en-us><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0cm;text-indent:0cm;mso-list:l0 level1 lfo1"><spanlang=en-us>If only <i style="mso-bidi-font-style:normal">that</i> skill couldbe taught in class…<o:p></o:p></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0cm;text-indent:0cm;mso-list:l0 level1 lfo1"><spanlang=en-us><o:p>&nbsp;</o:p></span></p><p class="MsoNormal" style="margin-left:0cm;text-indent:0cm;mso-list:l0 level1 lfo1"><spanlang=en-us>Supporters of this book project have emailed us from every inhabitedcontinent on the planet, and that was as much a joy as anything else in theprocess of making this book happen.

Hello chaps!

Just happened to notice that i haven't updated this Community in months. I feel deeply shamed, and shall endeavour to make this an extra special post.

Some facts about Ronald:
He was born in 1954 (which makes him 52- thought i'd add that up for you all- thought you'd be too lazy to figure it our yourselves!)
He was also in the 'hit' TV series 'Royal Deaths and Births', which, i can only imagine (with a title like that) was consigned to one of the various history channels, at some ungodly hour..

Hmm, well, i think thats all! so- same time next year?

Priestess Horatia Smoolxxx

ps. i challenge you all to discover a hitherto unknown fact concerning he who IS Hutton. There will be a prize for the best!* (NB/ emailing him is encouraged!)

*a nice prize, not Fliss's rejected moisturiser.

Hello!!!
Wow.......

Can't believe there are so many devoted fans of dear Professor Hutton. He's currently supervising my PhD, so I shall be sure to let him know!

hello everyone!

As i haven't updated in a while, I though the time had come to post a picture of the 'Hutton Cravat', the one that I now have in my possession *:-D*. I know that you've probably all seen it before, but I felt it need to be immortalised on the internet, before something invariably happens to it (such as alcohol and facepaint -which is what it was subjected to @ the last houseparty).

And now, without further ado:

thought vibe post - wooo, spooky!
Yes, this post is being created by pure thought waves - no typing whatsoever. For i am Priestess Smool and have amazing powers (can even kill a yak, from 200 yards away... with mind bullets!) which is pretty incredible -don't you think?!

As for his Hutton-ness. Well, there are just TOO many things to like. Hmmm, well, can't say t' cravat -as Fliss has said it... so i'll have to go with the 'pose', and the platforms. i can choose two -because i am the leader + can do whatever i like. ha.

P. Smool

ps. nxt update will be in two months time. :-P

This. Is. Shocking. 2 MONTHS?!?! And no one has posted here?? High Priestess Smool, you are slacking. I will not accept your lack of a computer as an excuse. You should post on here with pure THOUGHT VIBES, DAMMIT!!

The cravat is on my noticeboard. Looking pretty. In fact, I think that I might just feel inspired enough to steal a digital camera, and take a photo to post on her. Then I will give the camera back. Because I am not brave.

So, to get people active here, what does everyone like best about His Huttoness? I have to be dull and say the sheer bravosity of the cravatage. (Yes, Lei, I have been reading Georgia again. How in the name of pantyhose did you guess?!)

Yes. Reply, people!

Hi all, I have just joined the Church of Hutton. I love him so much that I went in halves on a £15 cravat for him to sign with the High Priestess. All must worship the wonder of Hutton!!! All!! Now, dammit, NOW!!!

Me.

Hello everyone!

Welcome to the Church of Hutton! I am now accepting nominations for people who wish to become disciples. There are only two positions (eh eh :-P) so, if you wish to nominate someone (it cannot be yourself) write a bit about why you think they'd make a good disciple. I shall decide which entries are the most promising, and will create a short list for you all to vote from.

I will also be organising a pilgrimage to Bristol University at some point in the future. How many people would be interested?
