Stage 3: Construction

Meet Chucky:

Chucky is a solidly built Capricorn, with a heart of pine.

He doesn’t really go in for long walks on the beach – or even short ones.

He is, however, a keen bowler for anyone willing to face a 5 kg solid metal cricket ball.

You can meet Chucky at Harcourt Park in a couple of weeks time.


Thank you Santa!

The true magic of Christmas is that for two days nothing you eat has any calories.


So this is Chirstmas.

Today in History 1968

December 24, 2006

On Christmas Eve 1968 the crew of Apollo 8, after recieving the instruction “Say something appropriate” from mission control, transmitted the following message while in orbit about the moon…:

William A. Anders:
We are now approaching lunar sunrise. And, for all the people back on earth, the crew of Apollo 8 have a message that we would like to send to you.

In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.

James A. Lovell, Jr:
And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. And God said, Let there be a firmament in the midst of the waters, and let it divide the waters from the waters. And God made the firmament, and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters which were above the firmament: and it was so. And God called the firmament Heaven. And the evening and the morning were the second day.

Frank Borman:
And God said, Let the waters under the heaven be gathered together unto one place, and let the dry land appear: and it was so. And God called the dry land Earth; and the gathering together of the waters called he Seas: and God saw that it was good.

And from the crew of Apollo 8, we close, with good night, good luck, a Merry Christmas, and God bless all of you, all of you on the good earth.

They were of course sued by Christian hater and serial suer Madilyn Murray O’hara, who habitually attacked anything daring to display faith in public. Personally, if the atheists want to decide what messages people can and can’t send from space, then they can damn well put their own manned space program together. I for one would be more than pleased to see a few of them strap a bomb thirty three stories high to their collective asses, and light the blue touch paper.

History tends to lean towards it looking like people of faith have been the ones to get us there.

The Supreme Court tossed the law suit and Time had this to say…:
