British War Captain Tom Moore:

The World War II veteran, who lives with his family in Bedfordshire, Captain Tom Moore raised over £32m as he celebrated his 100th birthday. His birthday has been shared with over 140,000 cards sent.

The occasion was also marked with an RAF flypast and birthday greetings from the Queen and acknowledgment from the prime minister Boris Johnson.

With celebrations under way, Capt Tom said everyone who donated was “magnificent”.

Capt Tom, who was recently treated for a broken hip and skin cancer, initially aimed to raise £1,000 for NHS Charities Together and said he set about raising the money “for the sake of the nurses and the NHS we have, because they are doing such a magnificent job”.

His two Daughters and family are all very proud of him as is his country.

-Projects & Gizmos:

Victorian miniature railway

For the past 2 years or so there has been a “start from scratch” miniature railway in the making being constructed in a small country town in the state of Victoria, Australia.

What is interesting about this ambitious project is that it is going to be the longest miniature railway in the southern hemisphere…  Says its President Andrew Mierisch who happens to be the son of Colin Mierisch, a long time advocate of 7 1/4 inch railways. In fact Colin is now working full time in his retirement to help his son achieve this incredible project. By way of introduction the small township of Harcourt (150km north of Melbourne in the state of Victoria, Australia) regularly can here the roar of machinery most weekends that comprises of the diggers, Bobcat, tractor, trucks and other assortment of vehicles… and if that’s not enough to catch the attention of the townsfolk then maybe it would be the sound of the dynamite blasting away the rock in preparation for the railway track bed.

The first stage is to build the first 2 km of track with the completed station and the locomotive servicing facilities.

– Male Reviews:

Neil Armstrong

(1930–2012) was an American astronaut who gained the distinction of being the first person to both land and walk on the moon.  “That’s one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind.” – Neil Armstrong (21 July 1969).

In December 1968, Armstrong was chosen to be the commander for Apollo 11, which would be the first planned mission to dock and land on the moon. Armstrong was chosen to be the first person who would have the distinction of walking on the moon.  Some suggest NASA chose Armstrong because he didn’t have a large ego.

Nelson Mandela

(1918 – 2013) was a South African political activist who spent over 20 years in prison for his opposition to the apartheid regime; he was released in 1990. In 1994, Mandela was later elected the first leader of a democratic South Africa. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize (jointly with F.W. de Klerk) in 1993 for his work in helping to end racial segregation in South Africa. He is considered the father of a democratic South Africa and widely admired for his ability to bring together a nation, previously divided by apartheid. Nelson Mandela is one of the most admired political leaders of the Twentieth and Twenty-First Century for his vision to forgive and forge a new ‘rainbow’ nation.

Oliver Cromwell 

(1599 – 1658) is a contentious figure in British history. Some see him as a defender of Parliamentary democracy fighting a tyrannical King. It is argued his defence of Parliament led to the development of a modern democracy. However, others see him in a different light, pointing to his seizure of power as ‘Lord Protectorate’ and the massacres of the Irish and Scots which were a form of genocide. He has also been criticised for his rigid puritanism, although in his reign Jews were permitted to re-enter Britain and there was a certain religious tolerance.
