your appearance does not upset me rab, it must be you way of easing your kind on us mere earthlings. as many of us look like that on a sunday morning anyway, and then revert back to our "EARTHLY LOOK", is that just to not frighten us so much? sad.gif

I note what you say Fat One - you will be spared.

I don't know about aliens but I was worried that the 'Omen' had come true:

I have read through the posted replies to Rabs topic and as well as having a laugh as usual , i also am glad to see the amount of our friends who seem to know where they are going after death , with the usual scoff at religion as if like me we are right and the religious nuts are wrong.
i myself lost my faith along time ago , but i have to put forward how good religion was for me in my early years , coming from afamily of 11 sons and 3 sisters , we had the bad luck of losing our father at a very early age and so my mother very cleverly brought us all up through the church , ie, church twice a day on Sunday , memebers of Lifeboys , BB etc, now this for me taught me right from wrong and that you respect all others, none of us were ever in bother and all had a good upbringing i believe because of the church.
i noticed the point Alex made about the congregations fading , is this maybe also a pointer in why our youngsters of to-day dont seem to have any morals.

Could be a factor, the church, life boys, boys brigage gave me a feeling of belonging, other interests than setting the middins on fire and chasing lassies; teaching whit was right and wrang and no tae be cheeky tae auld grannies and me aunties. Ah was a wee toerag in my time, but nothing like some of the feral kids that stalk the prairies these days, and I am telt that it is drunken girls that are the worst.

Noo, I can believe that, ye ken jist whurr drunken wimen goat it from. Oh bliddy hell no another catfight, used to get them regular ooot side the pub across frea oor house, Friday night's were especially entertaining.

I feel many of todays weans jist don't have a sense of identity or purpose and feel isolated.

The world we now live in is a far cry frea the wan we lived in Glesgea aw them years ago.

Entering recall mode....fitzzz

My first star gazing sessions took place along the banks of the Monkland Canal near the Blochairn Steelwurks. The sky was as black as hell there, nane of this modern light pollution crap we have now, so the resulting star field was breath taking, the longer yer whurr oot in the dark the mair ye could see. If yer were really lucky you would catch sight of a meteor or two, if ye were really unlucky it wid hit you and then be known as a meteorshite.

Took me a wee while to the identify constellations, as they change position over the year, so was some new ones to learn, til they whirled around again. Then came the task of identifying the individual stars and trying to memorise the main facts about them; distance, size, spectal type, parallax, binary, multiple. Oh its gets better or worse, depending on yer view.

I suppose ah was the equivalent of a computer geek these days. I even had the intelligent looking "Corporation Portholes" bandaged with lazzyplasts and nae friends.

I have just heard, geeks are supposed to be burd magnets these days, any truth in that Tomi?

Some interesting space shuttle Endeavour's STS 130 Mission video takes by Endeavour's crew. Loved the shadow of Endeavour cast onto the ISS by the rising sun and the reflection on the ISS which looks like a star.
The first video contains takes from day 13.
The second is prior to return to Earth.
