Saturday 25 August

I just logged onto a rather buggy Twitter this evening when the news caught my eye that Neil Armstrong, the first man on the moon, has died at the age of 82. I do not remember the moon landings in July 1969 (I was just short of my 5th birthday), but have always recognised it as one of the biggest achievements of mankind. To quote Neil Armstrong: he took a small step for man, but a big step for mankind. To quote one Twitter user: he has now taken the hardest step of all.
