    My Christmas message – this is what family is all about

    There’s something special in the bond between dad and daughter. I think this video sums it up nicely without being preachy about things. Enough said.

  • RNLI – please help these heroes

    RNLI – please help these heroes

    It’s almost Christmas and yes I know for many this will be a very expensive time of year. However, I’d like to invite you to support a team of unsung heroes that risk their lives, and that’s no exaggeration, to save and help others. I’m talking about the RNLI, or to give it its Sunday…

  • Behind every missing person is a grieving family

    Behind every missing person is a grieving family

    When someone goes missing there are far more people affected than the individual themselves. Whole families are ripped apart by the tragedy, which is why I tend to avoid reporting on missing person cases. You never know who you’re going to upset. So let’s avoid any speculation. Let’s not put forward any theories we’ve come…

  • It’s getting to that time of year

    It’s getting to that time of year

    No, not when that guy in the red suit comes down the chimney. Think back to 1980 when a base, allegedly housing nuclear weapons was breached by a craft of unknown origin. US Military Police Officers went out of the base on to UK territory to investigate the lights that had previously bee seen. Of…

  • Back and to the left

    Back and to the left

    Physics teaches us about the transfer of momentum. From a fast moving object to an slow moving object or an object at rest, the laws of physics apply. So I’ve never understood why, in the Zapruder film of the JFK murder, no official source has acknowledged the impact at frame 317, JFK’s head is clearly…

  • It’s time to look down instead of up

    It’s time to look down instead of up

    Three quarters of the Earth’s surface is covered in water. So if you wanted to hide your advanced craft, where better to choose than to head for the bottom of an ocean? In the Pacific Ocean, there is an anomaly off the coast of California, known as the Malibu Anomaly. There is also another anomaly…

  • UFO research doesn’t make great TV

    UFO research doesn’t make great TV

    There are many people who appear on TV on the subject of UFOs and UAPs. Some make an absolute fortune out of their appearances, which then go on to spawn radio show appearances, conference speeches overseas etc. This in turn generates a number of wannabes who are chasing the media dream. It’s like a reality…

  • Will sightings increase now the darker nights are here?

    Will sightings increase now the darker nights are here?

    Last weekend the clocks were reset in the UK. We’re now back operating on Greenwich Mean Time. The biggest change most people notice are the darker mornings and nights over the winter period. As more of our waking day is under darkness, will we have more sightings reported. With more people moving around during the…

  • Field gun training. What you don’t see at the Royal Tournament.

    Field gun training. What you don’t see at the Royal Tournament.

    A month ago I published a post appealing for the Royal Navy Field Gun race to be reinstated. It’s an explosive event with participants raining with sweat they’re putting so much effort into. I was intrigued about who the Field Gun participants were. What makes a Field Gunner? Why do they do it? What do…

  • There can’t be alien beings from other planets, can there?

    There can’t be alien beings from other planets, can there?

    Aliens. Great for SciFi movies, but in real life, they can’t exist, can they? Well back in 1961 Dr Frank Drake came up with an equation, that would be known by the name “The Drake Equation”, to estimate the number of communicative civilisations within the Milky Way Galaxy. What is a Galaxy? Now if you’re…

  • The only time I was given lines at school

    The only time I was given lines at school

    I was watching an old film today and the headmaster of the school gave one of the pupils 100 lines. This brought back a memory of the one and only time I was given lines to do at school. (Yeah it was that far back in history!) I can’t remember what my misdemeanour was but…

  • A 2024 challenge

    A 2024 challenge

    Is it too early to start thinking about next year? I’ve set myself a Maths challenge for 2024. Back in the day I was a bit of a Maths wizz. I had two fantastic teachers (who I’ll never be able to thank enough) who cajoled me, bullied me, inspired me, encouraged me and supported me…
