Lancaster Life And The Blog

The previous post was occasioned by the fact that I had just attended a history class on Lancaster and the slave trade in the Friendship Centre at the Baptist Church near the Town Hall. Lancaster was the fourth biggest English slave port after Liverpool, London and Bristol.

The Baptist Church is almost opposite a Polish language Catholic Church where Sheila taught English to Polish immigrants. We are always involved in international interactions and now look forward to interplanetary and interstellar interactions. Although it will not really happen like this, we meanwhile imagine Adzel converting to Mahayana Buddhism, Axor converting to Jerusalem Catholicism, human Avalonians joining Ythrian choths, Dennitzan children hearing Eriau lullabies etc.

Kaor, Paul!

I would be overjoyed if something like Anderson's FTL hyperdrive and Pournelle/Niven's Alderson drive was invented and publicized this year! But I have to be realistic and hope we see a REAL effort to get off this rock and moving into space starting soon. Such as what we see in Anderson's Flying Mountains stories or "The Saturn Game."

I'm so frustrated at how little has been done along those lines in the past forty years! No O'Neill habitats, no colonies on the Moon or Mars, no terraforming of Venus, no mining of the asteroid belt. Gggggggrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!!
