Got a printout of Statement 404 (no blue screen, everything’s okay), and the best way to wind up the weekend is get a little writing done. Here’s comments on this issue.
I always saw Sir Patrick Moore as the grumpy old astronomer with the monocle, but I knew better…he was on the Beeb for about 55 years. Who could possibly replace him? I wonder if his show will outlive him. I hope so; knowledge in subjects like astronomy seems to be fading as interest wanes. May his life be celebrated through Britain, if it hasn’t already.
Our New Year’s was a lot of fun, and we even went to a Twelfth Night dinner party…great food, good party, and a trivia quiz with prizes. We cleaned up on the prizes, beating a room full of teachers with correct answers. Yay, us!
The apocalypse…if you took out all the leap days we’ve inserted into the month of February over the years, we’d be in 2014 already, so the Mayans deserve to laugh at us. For me, the job hunt is on yet again, and if we can save enough money, and very possibly even if we can’t, we’re planning to go to the British Worldcon next year.
Grant, you said it was a bit of a thin news month, so this is a bit of a small letter. For an upcoming issue, perhaps you might ask CanCon for an article about going to the convention, and what they are offering. Any publicity is good publicity. Many thanks, see you next issue.nbsp;
