Forgotten incident today (update)

Halfway to Sewstern I had to walk through the Buckminster Gliding Club. I nearly got run down by a taxiing light plane. Further on I found the club's buildings and idly wondered if they had a café, a fanciful notion, but as I approached feeling a little trespassy a guy appeared and I sort of joked and hinted about the café. I was promptly ushered inside and a cup of tea was made for me and I bought two choccy bars and made an appropriate donation to their honesty box. I had interesting chat with various members. This is an old WW2 RAF station and steeped in the history of its resident squadrons. That was all a memorable visit which I inexplicably missed when writing up my post today.

I subscribe to the (US)National Science Foundation's newsletter and read an article I thought you might find interesting. I don't know how to embed a link in a comment so that all you have to do is click on it, but here is the URL: http://www.nsf.gov/discoveries/disc_summ.jsp?cntn_id=131916&WT.mc_id=USNSF_1

It might prove useful for your next trek.

These offers of tea are just becoming so common place that they're slipping your mind as an event now!

The Crow - thanks for that Martha. I will look more closely when I get home. I'm on the train at the mo.

Gayle - i wasn't sure if that one counted. It was hardly unsolicited.
