    1. I’ll admit that I still haven’t seen the movie … but I’ve seen some of the relics (tools used, experimentations etc). One dedicated guy!

    2. It must be just me … I visited your blog, was most impressed (lovely shots! Boom boom!) but couldn’t find anywhere to make a comment or pop a ‘Like’ …

      1. Thanks for looking Argus, likes and comments are at the bottom of individual blogs, on the HOME page it’s just comments. Been going through some more of your posts, love your style and wit, excellent! Brian
