It's a fascinating process and I'm amazed no one has thought of harnessing it - a holographic TV that could operate from the heat given off by an average-size guinea pig.' ~ First Among Sequels, Jasper Fforde

1759….The British Museum opens it's doors…..My, I have spent months in that place over the years. Even lived right opposite to it, at one point in my life. Great museum folks…If you haven't yet been to it and you ever get the chance to go and have a peruse, do. I think it is one of the best if not the best museums of the world ever….If you like that sort of thing that is.

1761… The tune to 'Twinkle Twinkle Little Star' is published in France. "Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman"

"Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star" is a popular Englishlullaby. The lyrics are from an early 19th-century English poem,"The Star" by Jane Taylor. The poem, which is in couplet form, was first published in 1806 in Rhymes for the Nursery, a collection of poems by Taylor and her sister Ann. It is sung to the tune of the French melody "Ah! vous dirai-je, Maman", which was published in 1761 and later arranged by Mozart for a famous set of variations.[1][dead link] The English lyrics have five stanzas, although only the first is widely known.

The English lyrics were first published as a poem with the title "The Star" by sisters Ann and Jane Taylor (1783–1824) in Rhymes for the Nursery in London in 1806.[2] The poem was written by Jane.[3]   


Twinkle, twinkle, little star,
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

When the blazing sun is gone,
When he nothing shines upon,
Then you show your little light,
Twinkle, twinkle, all the night.

Then the traveller in the dark,
Thanks you for your tiny spark,
He could not see which way to go,
If you did not twinkle so.

In the dark blue sky you keep,
And often through my curtains peep,
For you never shut your eye,
'Till the sun is in the sky.

As your bright and tiny spark,
Lights the traveller in the dark.
Though I know not what you are,
Twinkle, twinkle, little star.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.
Up above the world so high,
Like a diamond in the sky.

Twinkle, twinkle, little star.
How I wonder what you are.
How I wonder what you are.

Bloody hell, there was 1762 characters in the last post...

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

You can't smell garlic breath if you stand at least 1765 millimetres away from its source.

Seventeen Seventy is a village on the Eastern coast of Australia. (Apparently, somebody with very little imagination renamed it in 1970 to commemorate the bi-centennial anniversary of Cook's landing in Queensland.)
