Tumba Rumba

Continuing from my previous post, ...War and..., note this excerpt:
Victor Lanoux, 80, French actor (Cousin Cousine), complications from a stroke
  • Victor Lanoux (18 June 1936 – 4 May 2017) 
The film name re "Cousin Cousineis an "English/French" combination that's typical of the inner win world.  On venturing to the films wiki page and from among the list of cast, one stands out:
Not only do we have another addition to the "Guy Theme" pattern-cluster (see my recent May 3 post, Guy Usher Dangerous Waters).  And his surname also stands out, note this next excerpt again from my previous post:
Nancy Marchand (June 19, 1928 – June 18, 2000)
She died one day before her birthday... expanding the cluster again.  Her surname is a cryptic "March/War and" ... an unfinished sentence that need say no more!!!
Note from Guy Marchand's wiki page: 
  • Guy Marchand (born 22 May 1937[1]   
His birthday generates a "May _, 22, 23, _/ Date Sequence" (given the significance of May 23-- the day where 222 days remain), and an addition to the  to the "Off By One" pattern-cluster given that it's one off from the significant day of May 23. So bridging the two gaps... we venture to the May 21 and 24 wiki pages, limiting our search to the Deaths Section and then using the formula as per usual while taking into consideration the "one off" curve ball we arrive at:
  • Robert Gist (October 1, 1917 – May 21, 1998) 
  • Majrooh Sultanpuri (1 October 1919 − 24 May 2000)
We now have an "October 1(x2)" pattern-cluster.   Cutting to the chase we arrive at:
  • 2011  Sven Tumba (27 August 1931 – 1 October 2011) hockey player/golfer 
His name is an addition to the "Add a Letter Makes a Word" pattern-cluster... as in add an "e" makes "seven" (aka 7/&).   It's interesting to note that 7/7/7 was the date of my son's wedding.  A lot of people were married that day... guess they must consider it lucky.  On venturing to the 7/7 wiki page, I discover that no notable person is listed as having died on 7/7/7... I guess that is lucky.  Butt we do have the issue of the "one off" curve ball that gives us... right on the money:

  • John William Money (8 July 1921 – 7 July 2006)
He died one day before his birthday... hence generating a "July _, 7, 8/ Date Sequence" pattern-cluster.  Bridging the gap ... and cutting to the chase we arrive at:
  •  Barry Winchell (August 31, 1977 – July 6, 1999)
August 31st is an important date in the inner twin world scheme of things in that it's the birthday of Megan MacGregor,  another key player in the inner twin world's "Starr Family Production", who along with her parents Rob and Trish, are mentioned frequetly in this blog.  Rob and Trish are authors and fellow bloggers, and we have a history that goes back to 2009.

There's also the matter of the surname Tumba that reminds us of a combination of Tumble/Rumba :


  • tumbrel (n.)two-wheeled cart for hauling dung, stones, etc. (compare Old Norse tumba "to tumble,"...  see tumble (v.)). Notoriously the name given to the carts used to take victims to the guillotine during the Reign of Terror 
  • tumble (n.)"accidental tumble (v.). Earlier as "disorder, confusion" 
  • tumble (v.), "to perform as an acrobat," also "to fall down," perhaps from a frequentative form of Old English tumbian "dance about, tumble, leap
  • rumba (n.)1919, from Cuban Spanish rumba, originally "spree, carousal," derived from Spanish rumbo "spree, party," earlier "ostentation, pomp, leadership," perhaps originally "the course of a ship," from rombo "rhombus," in reference to the compass, which is marked with a rhombus. The verb is recorded from 1932. Related: Rumbaedrumbaing.

The "Tumba Rumba" is a cryptic way of referring to the dance our world is making-- rising and falling as a direct result of the last glacial period.  And this is why the MacGregor's factor in now ... where they live in Florida is in danger of "tumbling" into the sea!!

And I'm also reminded of one of my little faerie books, that I mention in my June 24, 2014
