Personally, I recall sitting in front of our old black & white TV, with the fireplace heating our cold winters day lounge room, watching it live while my Mum was in the kitchen - I yelled out to her to come in quickly to see it.

Sadly, JFK didn't live to see his commitment. If only the politicians of today had the thoughtfulness and drive to do good, rather being focused on nonsensical, party driven SMS messages and rhetoric.
I live in hope of better things - that's what memories of Apollo mean to me. Similarly, Permaculture is my way of focusing on the good and providing a legacy.
