(Film Trip) Kung Fu Panda @ 10.40am Sunday 6th July @ North Finchley VUE

In addition to this Saturday's cinema trip to Hancock (see below for details) it appears that Liana and I, at least, will be going to see Kung Fu Panda on Sunday at the North Finchley VUE. The film starts at 10.40am so we're meeting at the cinema at 10.30am.

Hope to see some of you at one or both of the cinema trips this weekend!

Hancock: Saturday 5th July

We're meeting outside the VUE North Finchley at 10.45am for the 11am screening.

Report on the Third World Trade Center Tower Collapse to be Unveiled

An interesting article about the report  on the third World Trade Center Tower to fall (Tower #7) is due to be published in the States this summer.

"The official explanation is that ordinary fires were the main reason for the collapse of Tower 7. That makes this the first and only tall skyscraper in the world to have collapsed because of fire. Yet despite that all the thousands of tonnes of steel from the building were carted away and melted down."

"Avery points out that Tower 7 housed some unusual tenants: the CIA, the Secret Service, the Pentagon and the very agency meant to deal with disasters or terrorist attacks in New York - the Office of Emergency Management."

I didn't realise so many people, in the States, felt that Bush and his government were hiding something over the attacks (53% according to the New York Times) or that a third of another poll believed that government officials either assisted or allowed the attacks to take place.

Anyway, here's the BBC's article:

UFO's Over Wales... Presumably over us all...

This is genius and just goes to reinforce my opinions of many who apparently belong to the same human race as I allegedly do:

Control Room: "South Wales Police, what's your emergency?"

Caller: "It's not really. I just need to inform you that across the mountain there's a bright stationary object."

Control room: "Right."

Caller: "If you've got a couple of minutes perhaps you could find out what it is? It's been there at least half an hour and it's still there."

Control: "It's been there for half an hour. Right. Is it actually on the mountain or in the sky?"

Caller: "It's in the air."

Control: "I will send someone up there now to check it out."

Caller: "OK."

The mystery was soon solved, as the exchange between control and an officer at the scene, makes clear.

Control: "Alpha Zulu 20, this object in the sky, did anyone have a look at it?"

Officer: "Yes, it's the moon. Over."
