TEMPUS FUGIT – we fall into the arms of July this week hoping for long days of sunshine and blue skies. Holidays will be on the horizon, though with financial restraints, days out might be the favoured option – even Pope Francis is being content with ‘days out’ at the summer residence this year. One member of the community recommends ‘a good travel book’ for dispelling the blues – Bill Bryson isn’t a bad read. He’s not too complimentary about Manchester but is fascinated by Blackpool, mentioning that it attracts more visitors every year than Greece and has more holiday beds than the whole of Portugal.
JUST IMAGINE – professor E N de C Andrade worked it out that if 1,000 men started to count the atoms in a single bubble of gas on the side of a glass of carbonated water, each one counting 300 atoms a minute, 12 hours a day, it would take them 1 million years!!!!
