There's a Dog in the Garden is a personal account of a family's journey with their mother's Lewy Body Dementia.

Bible Reading from Apollo 8

The 21st July is the anniversary of Neil Armstrong walking on the moon, Apollo 11 landed on the moon on 20 July and Neil Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours later on 21 July 1969 at Buzz Aldrin joined him 19 minutes later.

I recently found out that the crew of Apollo 8 whose mission back in Dec 1968 was to leave low-earth orbit, reach the moon, orbit and return.

When they were orbiting the moon on Christmas day and were told to do a broadcast, they asked what they should say and were told 'something appropriate' so after a lot of thinking they decided on reading from

Genesis 1

In the begining.....

One out of four people in the world heard the broadcast including those behind the Iron Curtain where Christmas was illegal, how cool is that!
