    Breastfeeding In Public

    I was trying to point out that it is the sight and smell of curdled milk that can be off-putting in a Restaurant, not the glimpse of a breast (which seems to be treated as the cause of tutting)

    What TV Are You Watching?

    I don't have access to the History Channel - could some-one tell me whether Knight Fight on tomorrow lives up to the hype? It seems to be Mixed Martial Arts in 36 Kg of armour (sorry, armor) with axes, swords, shields and spears - last man standing. Or as the Telegraph put it ' Once you would...

    Breastfeeding In Public

    Breastfeeding is NATURAL - yes I get that, but not in a Restaurant - especially not in a badly ventilated, over-priced Restaurant. It's not a nipple slip that offends people but the spitting-up/regurgitation/baby sick following a feed (one in every 3 feeds, two in every 3 feeds ? I forget what...

    High Adventure & Derring Do

    In April of 1944, Joe Herman was the pilot of a Royal Australian Air Force Halifax on a mission to bomb munition factories at Bochum. After dropping its bombs, Herman's Halifax was struck by enemy fire. Herman ordered his crew to bail out. Before he could grab his parachute, the plane exploded...

    80s Treasure Map TV Programme

    Update: by a process of elimination it is possible that the young chap I saw on the prog was Frederick "Cork" Graham. If so, the map would have belonged to his partner Richard Knight, who inherited it from his Grandfather and supposedly led to to Captain Kidd's treasure on the Vietnamese island...

    October 2005: Re-constructed Iron Age House at Bostadh Beach at the north end of the island of Great Bernera (Outer Hebrides). A storm in 1993 had cut away the sand dunes and exposed stone structures beneath. Excavations revealed these to be of Viking origin but below the Norse level were...

    Old Dreams

    Mmm yes, although I only remember a little of the film - maybe also a bit of Kiefer Sutherland in Dark City injecting new memories and personalities into people to see how scenarios would play out.

    Moon Trees

    Heard about the Moon Trees (seeds taken to the moon by Apollo 14 Command module Pilot Stuart Roosa) years ago on the radio (and promptly forgot about them until yesterday) but there's a thread for everything on this forum. Some-one was trying to track one down in an outside broadcast as most had...

    Old Dreams

    I remember a dream (not actually that long ago) which I think was triggered by Valentine's Day (the memory, not the dream). I was walking through a Marshalling Yard that resembled a vast Aircraft Hangar with people moving crates and supplies around - in fact they were wearing jackets and...

    Which Theory May Explain Psi Phenomena?

    I have a background in Science although I'm not a very good scientist - my first attempt at a PhD in Medicinal Chemistry ended when my Supervisor drank himself to death. The second foray into Neuropharmacology ended in a physical breakdown before I wrote up. The preface to my proposed thesis...

    Which Theory May Explain Psi Phenomena?

    First you need to define a ghost in scientific terms (half the arguments are over semantics). Then you need a Gloriette 80 Materialiser.

    The Meaning Of Trees

    I assumed 'Gospel Oaks' were a type of Quercus like White Oak or Turkey Oak until I read the entry, this idea originating from a visit to Totnes Castle in Devon. In the grounds were a couple of trees I didn't recognise that had been heavily cut back - I asked the Custodian and she said they were...

    Megalithic Mysteries

    Interesting article that left me a little crest-fallen. I'd seen the documentaries with Alice Roberts and Neil Oliver on new finds on the Ness of Brodgar on Orkney - from the sophistication and preservation of the neolithic sites, I was lead to believe that the Orcadians were exporting ideas to...

    I was in Dunelm looking for a plain tablecloth for my computer desk, I only needed something 3ft x 4ft but the cloths were huge, suitable for Banqueting tables. I found nice smaller ones but they were plastic, whilst the cloth ones had horrible patterns. When I thought I'd found a nice small...

    Megalithic Mysteries

    I visited Achmore Stone Circle on Lewis (Outer Hebrides) in Oct 2005 - or rather I didn't, as it wasn't a stone circle. The peat hadn't been cut away (like at Callanish a few miles away), the stones hadn't been uprighted and re-positioned (like at Stonehenge), no-one was selling tickets to see...

    Quite possibly, as the Lady at the Cafe till just had her Birthday and she didn't get a voucher. To be fair, all the manned tills at Morrisons were swamped at the time and I only had a basket.
