Time To Be Lazy Now


I did work this morning - although we only had one patient turn up. However he was someone who was "hard work" as he never listened to anything. Either any requests we made of him for the test, or even the questions Debbie, the physiologist, asked him. So may have only been one person, but in some ways we were glad there weren't any others to have to sort out as well!!

I then came home had lunch, went for a shortish walk and finished off cleaning my conservatory. So all in a all a positive day.

Now I am going to try and catch up here, and maybe make some icons ... so as I said, time to be lazy now.

let's get today's question done, then get on -

8. Do you believe there is life on other planets?

In all honesty, no. However I do love my sci fi, Star Trek, Star Wars stories ... so maybe there is a part of me that wonders what is "round the next corner"
Adventure before dementia

100 Meme - Film # 40

Thunderbirds ... The year is 2010. Teenager Alan Tracy, sent off to a distant boarding school, is the youngest of the sons of Jeff Tracy, a retired American astronaut. Jeff, a widower, has formed International Rescue, and raised his sons to act as a secret, volunteer organization which uses highly advanced technology to save lives worldwide. Jeff and his older sons John, Virgil, Scott, and Gordon, who like Alan were named after the Mercury Seven astronauts are joined in this effort by Lady Penelope and her butler/chauffeur Parker. Their futuristic hardware is largely developed by a genius scientist known as Brains, who lives at the International Rescue base on Tracy Island, somewhere in the Pacific.

Even better is that Jeff Tracey is played by Bill Paxton, who was Fred Haise in the epic Apollo 13 film.

And for those who don't know why I wanted to share this film ... This is the real reason, the original series that I loved, still love ... and gave me an abiding love for all things sci-fi!

Sorry for the delay in doing this meme, I will try to get back on track.
