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.

The not so Commonwealth Games...

I hear that the 20th Commonwealth Games have kicked off in Glasgow, providing another ten days of international sporting competition for at least some of the world to enjoy. Sadly, there's no team from Cornwall on this occasion. I think there should be...

But my first thought on hearing news of the opening ceremony was 'not Scotland again'. I was under the [correct] impression that the games have been held in Scotland several times previously and [mistakenly] as recently as 2002.

'Some Commonwealth this is', I thought, if only a handful of countries can afford to stage the games and have the facilities to do so...
