    At the peak they had 400,000 people working in NASA on Apollo project. Wow! They weren't jerking around huh?

    There were a couple of programs last night which were once over lightly but entertaining.

    I'm enjoying the BBC podcast I listed before just slowly getting through it and getting more geeky about it. Guess this stuff had slipped out of my attn for decades.

    Apparently Apollo 7 was a huge success that was turning point towards getting it all working.

    So there is truth to the rumour after all. -

    The Flour was why he had started dressing in a White suit as his original black one used to show the flour spills.
    His big innovation other than his hipster beard was the use of a pressure fryer to speed up the cooking.

    October probably 16th 1997 I was quite drunk and in a van headed to watch the GP in Philip Island, they stopped for dinner at a KFC. I hadn't eaten it for a couple years. Even drunk it was dreadful and I haven't had it since. Pity Nandos is so expensive. It's at least edible.

    Really. It doesn't even have reach the ground. Imagine an airburst like the one over Siberia above a densely populated area.

    Find a decent Korean or Chinese restaurant, get the five spice chicken. You're welcome.

    The rover was cool - a lightweight, collapsible frame that was stowed on the lander, released with not much more than a pull on the rope. The wheels/tyres were innovative too: lightweight wire mesh doughnuts that wouldn't bog down in the dusty surface layer but had enough grip to climb crater rims safely. No AA to call out if they got stuck!

    Sure beats my Rover. One of the least impressive bits of British engineering I've had the misfortune to drive, worse even than the TR7 though not quite as bad as a mate's Austin All Aggro.

    Think I've had Korean out of a caravan so not a fair test. Decent Chinese restaurants aren't common. Bland ones are. We are blessed here with fantastic Thai and Malaysian ones though.
