Never visited any of the concentration camps. I would like to and pay a homage to all those that suffered.

I have visited the Hiroshima Peace Memorial/Museum. It too is an eerie, haunting place to visit. It is not anti nuclear or anti American it simply shows you what happens when you drop a nuclear bomb. The strangest thing of all was in the middle of a cleared area is an eternal flame which marks the point which is believed to be "ground zero" around the flame are placed plaques in many languages which describe that the bomb exploded 2,000 feet above this point. Without exception everyone who read the plaques, including me, looked up. It was a deeply moving place.

Now that we no longer manufacture cars in any meaningful number here in Australia I have switched my allegiance to a Japanese brand, Toyota. I just cannot bring myself to even consider a car from the cheating car company or from other over priced German marques.

Banking off of the north east winds

Sailing on a summer breeze

And skipping over the ocean like a stone.

 

Great song Ben I also liked the harmonica intro of the theme for Midnight Cowboy written by John Barry one of the greatest composers of our era.

Archie Andrews, a ventriloquist act on radio, unbelievable. Peter Brough was absolute rubbish on tv.  He never even attempted to disguise his lips moving.
