515 Country Walking

This is the top of Butser Hill. I have been there, but I haven’t really walked the area. The article isn’t about that.

The country walking in the title isn’t an activity in this case. It’s the magazine. I have to confess that I was considering not renewing the subscription. I will though. That is because this month’s issue has reminded me how much I really do enjoy reading the publication. To the extent that i am going to retain this months issue.

One of the many articles is a 180 day calendar of events. In this case, one particular day caught my attention; 23 Jan 1974. (Copied from the magazine “A violent bang shakes the Berwyn Hills a light blazes in the sky; rumours spread that a UFO has crashed and the Army is pulling dazed aliens from a smashed spaceship. It soon becomes known as the Roswelsh incident, after the famous events at Roswell, New Mexico. It is much more likely that an earthquake or meteor was the cause (Of course, I would say that wouldn’t I?).”

Why had I never heard of this episode? In 1974 I was well in to Science Fiction, this would have been a moment of massive excitement. Of course, we didn’t have anything that could deliver the news with today’s speed. That raises another question in my mind that there are people who have never known a world without social media or google – but that’s a different post.

This will be the third (possibly the fourth – I’ve lost count) year that I’ve undertaken the challenge. This year is slightly different. I’ve formally registered. I did look at registering for the first year, but the website with the tracking software appeared to be a bit fiddly, and I wasn’t happy getting to grips with it. When I went to the website this year, it has been significantly revamped, and so I am giving it another go.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
