And speaking of pleasure from healthcare providers, it's not exactly a new thing. Not for the womenfolk at least.

"For some marvellous photographs of the Apollo missions, Michael Light’s Full Moon is strongly recommended."

Third thumbs-up for Full Moon. The coffee table book that doesn't translate to ebook format.

They even have color photos of the moon. You have to look carefully. There was a splash of minerals that make it look like gold flakes were scattered across the surface. But that's it: It's grey all the way down.


See also Light’s companion volume, 100 Suns.

It was awesome. We got the day off school.

First colour tv: 1980. My dad insisted when we moved house, he didn't see the point, but a cut a deal with my mum. He could thereafter watch the snooker in colour.

Achievement redefined.
