Project Semicolon ;

June 27, 2019 at 11:42 am (Uncategorized)

I came across this the other day, whilst looking up some lyrics of a Linkin Park song (Nobody can Save Me).
I think I ended up at their forum and someone had posted a picture of their LP tattoo. So someone asked about the semicolon (;), so I followed the link they provided.
I hadn’t heard about this. So I thought that I would share it.

Sir Terry Pratchett, author, dies aged 66

March 12, 2015 at 4:36 pm (Uncategorized)

Fantasy author Sir Terry Pratchett has died aged 66, having had Alzheimer’s disease for eight years. “The world has lost one of its brightest, sharpest minds,” said Larry Finlay of his publishing company, Transworld. Best known for the Discworld series, Sir Terry wrote more than 70 books over his lengthy career. He was first diagnosed with Alzheimer’s in 2007, but continued writing, completing his final book last summer. The author died at home “with his cat sleeping on his bed, surrounded by his family,” Mr Finlay said.

Leonard Nimoy – RIP

February 27, 2015 at 7:35 pm (Uncategorized)

Leonard Nimoy, who enchanted generations of audiences with his depiction of Star Trek’s human-alien philosopher and first officer Mr Spock, has died at his home in Los Angeles. He was 83.

The actor died on Friday morning of end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease in Bel-Air, his wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, told the New York Times. He had been hospitalised at UCLA medical center with breathing difficulties days earlier.

Nimoy’s last tweet, sent on Monday, suggested he knew the end was near: “A life is like a garden. Perfect moments can be had, but not preserved, except in memory. LLAP.”

“Live long and prosper” was the Vulcan salutation which he made famous as Spock, and which he and fans carried into real life. Tributes to the actor, director, photographer, writer, poet, musician and teacher agreed he had indeed done so.

“I loved him like a brother,” William Shatner, who starred alongside him as Captain Kirk, wrote on Facebook. “We will all miss his humor, his talent, and his capacity to love.”

George Takei, who played Sulu, said the world had lost a great man. “And I lost a great friend. We return you now to the stars, Leonard. You taught us to ‘Live Long And Prosper,’ and you indeed did, friend. I shall miss you in so many, many ways.”

I’ve just been told by a friend, that I’ve appeared to be confident over the past two days. More confident than they have seen me before.

Sir Patrick Moore, 89, Dies at home

December 9, 2012 at 10:08 pm (Uncategorized)

I’ve just been looking at some news and came across this on the Yahoo! news section

Sir Patrck Moore

The broadcaster “passed away peacefully at 12.25pm this afternoon”, in Selsey, West Sussex, they said in a statement.

It added: “After a short spell in hospital last week, it was determined that no further treatment would benefit him, and it was his wish to spend his last days in his own home, Farthings, where he today passed on, in the company of close friends and carers and his cat Ptolemy.”

Sir Patrick, who celebrated the 55th anniversary of his programme, The Sky At Night, in April, had battled ill health in recent years.

The stargazer had been using a wheelchair and was unable to look through a telescope.

He died after failing to fight an infection.

The statement went on: “Over the past few years, Patrick, an inspiration to generations of astronomers, fought his way back from many serious spells of illness and continued to work and write at a great rate, but this time his body was too weak to overcome the infection which set in, a few weeks ago.

“He was able to perform on his world record-holding TV Programme The Sky at Night right up until the most recent episode.

“His executors and close friends plan to fulfil his wishes for a quiet ceremony of interment, but a farewell event is planned for what would have been Patrick’s 90th birthday in March 2013.”

Queen guitarist Brian May paid tribute to a “dear friend and a kind of father figure to me”.

He said: “Patrick will be mourned by the many to whom he was a caring uncle, and by all who loved the delightful wit and clarity of his writings, or enjoyed his fearlessly eccentric persona in public life.

“Patrick is irreplaceable. There will never be another Patrick Moore. But we were lucky enough to get one.”

Speaking at a party to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the BBC programme, Sir Patrick said he hoped the stargazing series would continue “indefinitely”.

The last programme was broadcast on Monday.

Sir Patrick has only missed one episode since it began in 1957 when he was struck down by food poisoning.

His trademark monocle, unique delivery and occasional performances on the xylophone made him a familiar target for satirists and impressionists, but his scientific credentials were never in doubt.

A really good friend of mine as just said “You don’t need to be controlled, you just need to be understood”

For once I think that someone as actually understood me. Its rather strange to be honest.

Thank you
