Re: I'm going on a Cruise

Take a few empty Kitchen size trash bags Rosie. They do not take up any room but are quite useful in disposing of "wastes" if needed. You lose power on the ship and you lose everything........including the toilets, which has happened on several occaissions I have read about. And don't forget about a...

and reducing the "risk of human extinction" by establishing a human colony on Mars. That's the bit that brings it all undone for me. :lol: And all this time I thought it was landing two USA astronauts on the moon. My, my how times have changed.

Elon Musk, born in 1971, is a South African-born Canadian American business magnate, investor, engineer and inventor. He is the founder, CEO, and lead designer of Spac...

17 Dead and 11 more wounded

At a high school just north of Mami, Florida, an expelled student with an AR-15 (Automatic Rifle) entered the school at 2:40 pm and opened fire. Three more in intensive care and not expected to live.

More later.

Oh......and happy Valentin's Day.

Maybe SpaceX could put a train on Mars......but the, how stupid wouldn that be?

Re: Want to go to Mars?

Me too Ralph. But, you've got to wonder how long it would take to get to Mars. They better bring a lot of wine & booze with them.....not to mention the size of the crapper.

I'm sure those guys have thought through the logistics of all of that.

Re: Want to go to Mars?

Do a little research Gnads. He owns SoaceX and has put into orbit numerous satellites for the Military and NASA. He has developed rockets that are recyclable. Some of them can take off from a launch pad and be returned back to the same launch pad in the same vertical fashion as they were launched in.

What a great show the opening ceremony is.

Who will take the most gold home with them? My money's on the Canadians. Winter sports is certainly their forte.

Re: I'm going on a Cruise

Have a good trip Rosie. Some people just love cruises, like Sherri. I have always viewed them as being in prison with a good chance of drowning.

Wish you the best.

Re: Want to go to Mars?

Well, that's one way to look at it. I guess when you drive around in a circle all day long, that might be the approach one would take. On the other hand, let's look at all of the good things/inventions that came out of the USA space exploration, shall we? Here are a few.........there's many more: ht...

Want to go to Mars?

This is the most phenomenal event I have witnessed since the 1960's. Space X is a private organization from the owner of Tesla.......perhaps the most expensive and best built automobile in the world. They are building a space program "out of pocket" and with donations from individual people. This ro...

Re: Ralph - Tell us About King Edward VIII

It is now forgotten, perhaps very conveniently, that a lot of wealthy and influential people originally greatly admired Hitler and that included Americans such as Joe Kennedy and Nancy Astor just to name two. They thought he was the answer to the threat from communists. Kennedy also it seems held v...

There is no suggestion, and there won't be, that The Queen is involved or was even aware of where the funds of The Duchy of Lancaster were invested.

Re: Back Home from Canada and the USA

Settling back in at home now after three weeks in North America. Good service only if you tipped. Surely the tipping process works the other way. You don't tip until you are leaving, so the wait staff would have no idea if you intended to tip or not. The only way they have a chance of a decent tip ...
