    Stagtime reacted to Carl Sagan in Apollo 11   
    Great to see the thread (thanks @DarkFruitsRam7). Sometimes if giving talks I claim this is my earliest memory, but that's a bit of a stretch as I was only three. The whole Sagan family had gathered at my parents to see it and I'm told I was plucked from my bed and brought into the front room to watch those famous steps on our black and white telly. Do I remember it? Memory is a very difficult thing to pin down.
    That said, I absolutely remember Apollo 13 which was only a year later, and wondering if the astronauts would make it back.
    I've just written a book about the future that has a chapter on Space Travel and Colonization. Here's the opening, mentioning the stunning leaps forward in powered flight up until Apollo 11, and how we've regressed since.

    My side Canberra Raiders has four English players this season with another one coming next year. Our co captain is from HKR with one from Bradford and two and the one next year from Wigan. Hard men.
    And how good are Leeds Rhinos going this year🤣

    They’re usually grown down south in Victoria where it can be as cold and miserable as over there. Up here in gods country our fruit and veg is supplied all over oz and Asia. The little town I come from has some of the worlds largest citrus and avacado farms in the world. Up here in Qld our annual rainfall would dwarf anything you get. Tully averages 4000 mm per year (160inches).

    Born in Mundubbera, Central Queensland. Both my parents emigrated over here as a result of WW2. Mum’s from the Black Forest area in Germany and Dad was born in Derby (Shardlow). Both my grandfathers fought in the war for either side, Mum’s father never made it back. As a toddler dad and his older brother were abandoned by there mother while there dad was at war and placed in a orphanage and as a result sent to Australia and told that both there parents were dead. I knew were dad was from and back in the 70’s we didn’t get much info about your football but I can tell you exactly where we were when we heard on the radio that Derby had won the league in 75. As a result I followed them from afar, checking results in our local papers every week. In 2014 we decided to move to London for a while for work and that’s when I started to really understand what  your passion for the badge is all about. Since then I’ve been lucky enough to get back over for at least 1 match per season even organising flying over for The Wembley match last month. The best part is I have been able to find some relatives from Derby that I catch up with every time we are over there.
    Sorry about your young fella mate.

    I am a Derbyshire girl and me and my mum loved to watch football on tv. My dad though was strictly against it so we had to do it when he was out at work (luckily he worked shifts.) First real football I remember was the 1966 world cup on tv - I  was hooked.
    As a teenager I regularly snuck off with a girlfriend to watch Alfreton Town but still enjoyed tv matches with my mum -  Franny Lee was her favourite but at that time I was all Liverpool. 
    I met my husband and he started to take me to Derby matches home and away. We won the league again in my first season at the Baseball Ground playing great football. It sort of sealed the deal for both my Club and my partner and we are still together 44 years later - Derby's and life's and downs notwithstanding! 
    I was so proud to see the great Franny Lee live on the pitch at last but couldn't tell mum as by then she'd died. 
    I am not surprised to read stories of life, love and loss in this thread. Football is like family; it is part of you and you share the joys and sorrows with your football family just as you do those of life.

    I am not sure the circus is ever going to end.
    Say Frank leaves, we’ll probably be referred to as The Club Formerly Known as Frank Lampard’s Derby County, and we’ll probably host a yearly friendly with West Ham called Battle of the Exes.
    We’ll probably even end up as a pub quiz question: Frank Lampard managed Chelsea to 11th in the Premier League, won Liga MX with Club America, the Qatari league title with Al Ahli, and finally won the Russian Premier League with Rubin Kazan. But where did his storied managerial career begin?
    When does pre-season start? 😂

    I’ve got a mate with an apartment in marseillen.. at the end of the canal de midi. It’s where all the oysters come from. It’s not super posh and has a real traditional feel. Close to both Carcassone and Montpellier. Only been once for new year. Got fat, drank a lot of wine and wandered through some great market towns a bit off the headline grabbing trails. Going back I hope, in October ( fixture list depending 🤣)

    Just caught up with the latest pages while having brekkie so here’s my take on things.
    1/ Teams change management frequently but at this stage I’d be more worried about the fitness staff going. The next 3-4weeks will set up the rest of the season fitness wise and what I saw last season this was one of our major strengths come the last few rounds. If we have 2.5 mill to spend on a manager I think we’ll be able to find a reasonable replacement if needed.
    2/ Butter always on thick white bread before the bacon. And talking about bacon, the thing I notice most when I go over there is how crap your bacon is. 
    3/ whoever puts their crisps in the fridge is surely taking the piss.
