OK, thanks Sirius B and Leyland. That might well be it as I can remember reading some A E Nourse books about then. Many thanks, I'll try to find it.

I started on Science Fiction when I was about 7 or 8, got hooked &, while I may wander over to other genres occasionally, am still 'stuck with it.

A bit like the addiction to Seti@Home :-)

Other than Terry Pratchet, Heinlein, Asimov and Clark, some of my favourites are the Hospital Station, and the Unorthodox Engineers collections of stories, I still find them very engaging and re-readable.

I do remember a story from just after I got hooked, in a book I borrowed from the Public Library, and cannot recall the author, or title, It was about space travel, and referred to "Koenig Drive" as the propulsion system. Unfortunately, I cannot remember anything more, but I recollect that I enjoyed it... Neven been able to track it down! (May be because I've misremembered this info as well)

Any ideas anyone?

I know I said test the flotation system before the long oversea flight, but wasn't this a too bit drastic a method?

A nice snack that my wife and I like as a treat (the fat can be a bit high) is:-

Take Jacobs Cream Crackers (I don't know the equivalent outside the UK), place them on a microwaveable plate,
Sprinkle them with grated cheese (your favorite)
Then cook in the microwave on full power for about 20-30 seconds until the cheese has mostly melted the crackers should stay firm
Then optionally add Tomato ketchup, or pickle etc. to taste

Eat & enjoy

All the lights seem green on that, then.

Or is it being a bit too independent?

....no Liberal dose of Labour then, we will have to be Conservative in our fretting...

Hi Mark,

I can understand your sentiments, and appreciate your frustration.

I also like your poetry. :-)

However, do be careful of giving ammunition to others who may be looking for it...

All the best

Graham
