    50 Years Since Apollo 11 Landed

    Absolutely. I think it was an occasion so monumental that it transcended nationality. No doubt behind closed doors even the Russians had a sly, envious grin on their faces whilst thinking to themselves, ''the bastards really did it!''

    50 Years Since Apollo 11 Landed

    I was young, very young, but I do remember the blurred black and white images and am pleased to be able to say I was there to see it happening. Whilst mankind has done many great things, discovered countless miraculous benefits that make our lives comfortable, longer and easier, I do think that...

    Then the book shall wait until my destination (Singapore). As I'm there for 14 nights, there'll be ample time to read it. I almost watched Plan 9 just the other night on Amazon Prime but it refused to load for me citing some error number, not once but twice, so I gave up.

    Modern Funeral Customs

    Surely this is logical progression. The cost of modern funerals & cremations is absurd and one many families can barely afford. There are many these days who really would be happy to be returned back to nature and this seems like the perfect way to do it. I'm all for it as an option.

    Eurovision: ESC 2019

    Madonna was dreadful. Even the worst contestants sang better than her and that's saying something. I can handle Australia not winning (though one day we will) but I stand firm, Norway was robbed. Definitely the song and performance of the night.

    I've seen Hirohito in person. To cut a long story short, I was in Tokyo in January of 1983. Having arrived on an early morning flight, our hotel room was not yet ready.

    I do believe this to be true to a point.

I used to also consider myself reasonably psychic or very intuitive if...
