    thanks Bill...enjoyed that......BUT...I am the centre of the universe. I told my wife Julie that anyway....

    If the universe is without end...and it must be if you really think about that....then wherever you are in it, you are in the centre basically. Bit heady for me but true.

    Thanks Bill. Really cool. How could anyone possibly believe that we are the only life form out there. Still, I guess that's a whole different debate.
