2011 Living with my wife Sarah in our flat Chumlodge in Burton Lazars outside Melton Mowbray. Working for the Beer Mines (Grainstore Brewery)

2001 Living in Chez Who in Whissendine. Working for RS Components as a Programme Manager.

1991 Living at 18a Rue de Broqueroy, Mons, Belgium - Alex and Evan would be born whilst we were living here. I was a Flight Lieutenant in the RAF working at SHAPE (Supreme Headquarters Allied Powers in Europe)

1981 Living in Halls of Residence at Salford University and studying Aeronautical Engineering, but soon to return home to Bodafon Farm

1971 Age 7. Living at home with my parents at Bodafon Farm, Llandudno. The moon landings were still taking place and I would have called you a complete liar if you told me that by 2011 we would not have been back to the moon or gone further!

-feels old-

Hey, we may not have a real space program -- sob! that's how old I am; so old, my high-school pals and I really expected to hold our 2001 get-together on the Moon -- but we do have Dick Tracy cell-phone watches, Star Trek-like communicators, solar cars, manufacturing and surgical robots, laser surgery, photocopied food O.o ...

...and, coming soon:
* teleporters (sort of -- http://www.kidzworld.com/article/2256-beam-me-up-scotty-a-real-live-teleporter)
* micro traction beams (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-12620560)
* and -- wait for it -- available for sale by year's end (they say) ... a genuine flying car (http://www.terrafugia.com/).

I read somewhere that this may be the last census they do as many think it's a waste of money.
I hope that's not the case. :(

ditto on 1971. I expected us to be colonizing planets right now and having the moon all populated with a mongo space station ala star trek.

And I want my silver Lame' jumpsuit and flying car, dammit.
