    "With a million stars all around".

    That should be a good show Dave. I am going to drive out to the Mojave Desert and watch it with the Coyotes. Maybe I will get one of them "Peaceful Easy Feelings"

    ...Or get scoffed by a pack of Coyotes.

    What if Steven Hawkings is right ? We contact Aliens and they turn out to be just like us. Arseholes

    Michaud takes issue with the old claim that we already have been detected or that detection is inevitable. Experts have shown that the normal signals emitted by Earth are too weak to be heard at interstellar distances without colossal antennas, he said."Sending deliberate, unusually powerful signals is a decision that belongs properly with all Humankind," Michaud said. "We should have an open debate about whether or not to call attention to ourselves by making our civilization more detectable than it already is."

    I think me Kraut grandpa was an alien, at least that's what they called him when they locked him up for a few weeks in WW2, til they realised he had 3 sons in the Brit forces, 1 in the Army, 1 in Navy and 1 in RAF and he wuz working on munitions, so they let him out. Only alien I knew, mind he did have a square head and a bacon neck, frightenin!.

    Can you still remember him well Wig ?

    I can just about remember mine. Brief flashes. Picking plums with him at five. Picking hops. On a Midland Red Bus in Brum. Falling off a wall when he was reading a newspaper at a bus stop in Suckley Worcs. Lying in his bed covered with an Army great coat.... coughing.

    They went like flies between fifty and sixty when I was a kid Dave. Heart Attacks and COPD, which caused the HA's. Looks like this generation is knockin' a higher score eh ? Maybe we learned by their mistakes. I went on a Careers Convention trip to Jubilee Pit when I was fifteen. I though "Yes...you can stick this right up yer arse. Career for life ?.... I don't think so". Watching those hard case blokes disappear down into the bowels of the earth put me right off. Nice tea and cakes in the canteen though.

    What gripped my shit was that blokes who has worked in coal and stone dust for years and died from pneumonicosis always had 'pneumonia' as the cause of death, the c**ts took years to accept that it was dust that killed them, and many were long dead but their relatives got some compensation, and some of that was pissed up the side of pub walls by some of their waster relatives, aint no f***ing justice. Had compo been paid when it should it may have given the owd lads a bit of pleasure before they went. its a f***ing turd of a world

Me mates was supposed to be feeding them at the other end of the lake while I did my SBS act. Dint work. All I could hear was "Swim just swim" !!!!!! He came water skiing down that lake, with his big yellow feet sticking out, wings outstretched, like an avenging Angel. lol Then he stood on me back with that snakey owd neck going in and out and I thought I had a jackhammer on head and neck. Bastard nearly killed me. Swan Pool in the Sandwell Valley 1959/60.

    I don't remember any talk of compensation in our area Wig. It was just..... well do yer best and make him comfortable.... and that was it. Owd Doctor was out the door like it was the norm. Then the kids were kept out the room the last few days and the next time you saw them was in the hall in a coffin with all the neighbours filing past. That was it.

    i see Trump wants to send man to the moon, now. I suppose no ones got the heart to tell him, it's already been done.
    I told myself that I should stop drinking, but I'm not about to listen to a drunk who talks to himself.
