Tunnelling under the Thames...

I think it must be a year since I last managed to do this, but I actually sat down for a whole hour this evening and watched a documentary that I had recently downloaded via BBC iPlayer.

I don't normally have the patience to do that, but what caught my eye on this occasion was a documentary about the ongoing Crossrail project in London, and tunnelling under the River Thames.

Aliens on the Moon? Yeah, right...!

Now what's all this nonsense I am reading about aliens on the moon...?

I understand there was a documentary broadcast recently on Syfy, which claimed to tell the "truth" about that. It was first broadcast on 20th July 2014, the 45th anniversary of the first moon landing, so clearly it was intended to cash in on a significant anniversary of an important historical event. I didn't see the programme, but this trailer on Youtube is intriguing. I'm left with a very big question though, which is if you've got incontrovertible proof of aliens living on the moon, why wait to broadcast what would be the biggest news in the history of our planet...?

But it was another clip posted on Renards blog, which caught my attention last night and has prompted my own blog posting on the subject.

Buying a TV with no licence...

We bought a new TV the other day, which before anybody gets too excited was for my Mum. It was installed and will exclusively be used at her house, not mine...!

What is worth noting though, is that for the first time ever, I wasn't asked to supply a name and address when buying a TV. It is no longer a statutory requirement for retailers to do so and Tesco seem to be observing that, well superficially at least.
