    Dara is very funny isn't he

    I think astrology is more to do with the aligning of the sun, the moon and the stars, then predicting what could happen in someone's life.

    Astronomy is more scientific, it's studying the stars, planets etc.









    If ever there is a tomorrow when we're not together.......
    there is something you must always remember.
    You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think.
    But the most important thing is, even if we're apart...... I'll always be with you.
    Winne the Pooh - A A Milne



    A friend is a hand that is always holding yours,
    no matter how close or far apart you may be.
    A friend is someone who is always there and will always, always care.
    A friend is a feeling of forever in the heart.

    I too like Dara.
    He just annoys me a bit at how he keeps on saying "Aaaah" after each sentence, but his humour makes up for that indiscretion IMHO.

    I love Dara O Briain (sp.. can't be assed to look it up) He's hysterical.

    Youtube is your friend if you want to see him in action.

    What is the difference between and astronaut and a cosmonaut? (again sp) Does Skywatcher know?

    As far as I know, "astronaut" is the Western term, and "cosmonaut" is used for Russian space travellers.

    Oh thanks for that Slowhand... I always wondered but didn't like to ask. X
