Yeah, Graxan, your 'Here he goes again!' could come from (in no particular order) my partner, my kids, or my dogs.

I often feel the pressure of my partners foot, under the table at dinner parties, telling me to shut up - at least I think it's my partners foot?

I also think that my closest friends must mimic me in my absence, opening a large dirty overcoat in a public toilet, "Wanna' see some photos of the transit of Venus?"

My brother was at some adventure convention in Flagstaff, Arizona last month - home of the Lowell Observatory. He phoned me from there. I can't remember much, if anything, of his trip. I can, however, remember bleeding his ears about the work of Slipher (and of course, Hubble) on red-shift, and how the observatory at Flagstaff helped discover the beginning of time!

All at smart-phone rates from the UK!

And to think all he wanted to talk about was the new KTM 1290cc Super Duke!

Ah well...
