  1. 40 years ago on the day of the Moon landing I was up early,it being the school ‘Harvest Holidays’ as we refered to it, and out into the fielsd to pick strawberries for pocketmoney.
    Two things struck me as I typed this message;
    1, I wonder whether 10 year old subsidise their income by doing such things today.
    2, How late the strawberry crop was in 1969, ‘local’ strawberries are now at least a month earlier than they were then due mainly to plant breeders developing much earlier maturing varieties.
    I quite distinctly remember looking up to the morning moon at about 6am. and thinking that there’s someone on that planet million miles away.
    Now, cynical old me, wonders whether it ever happened at all!!!!!!
