HI All,
I like to thank S@N magazine for the John Dobson interveiw(he's one of my astro hero's) his account of his experiences in the monastery in having to hide his telescope making activities from the other monks by using coded messages to his friends was hilirious,I mean it wasnt as if he was secretly growing pot![:D]Being asked to leave for being missing when he was actually weeding was a double whammy because weeding is a horrible job.Also I hope Im half as spritly at as him at 91.[:)] I often think of him when out with my 12"potted geranium in flower.[:D]
Regards Les.

Yes, I second that Les. I enjoyed reading the interview greatly - and it's hard to believe that the guy is 91. Reckon he'll make 100 easy!
