There aren't enough quotes

words, pictures or memories to really sum this up. So lets see how many words we can get from my head.

When ever life gets you down Mrs. Brown.
And things seem hard or tough.
And people are stupid, obnoxious and daft
and you feel like you've had quite enough-ough ough ough.

Just remember that you're standing on a planet thats evolving
-revolving at 900 miles an hour.
Its orbiting at 19 miles a second, so its reconed (I can't spell that)
around the sun that is the source of all our power.

The sun and you and me and all the stars that we can see
are moving at a million miles an day
in the outer spiral arm at forty thousand miles a minute
in the galaxy we call the milky way.

Our galaxy itself contains a hundred billion stars,
its one hundred billion light years side to side
It bulges in the middle 16 thousand light years thick
but out by us, its just three thousand light years wide.
We're 30 thousand light years from galactic central point,
we go round every three hundred million years
And our galaxy is only one of millions and billions in this amazing
and expanding universe.

Our galaxy itself keeps on expanding and expanding
in all of the directions it can whiz
as fast as it can go, the speed of light you know
and thats one thousand miles a second and thats the fastest speed there is
so remember when you're feeling very small and insecure,
how amazingly unlikely was your birth
and pray that there's intelligent life in space
because there's bugger all down here on Earth!

Sounds a bit woody to me.
But rather than worry too much about the penguin on the tele or the new gas stove, I think that I'll just sit here with a lovely box of spring surprise and crunchy frog chocolates and be very very happy that there was, by some miracle or fate- Monty Python.
To my old, far gone pals at the Brotherhood of British Comedy, to my friend Shannon who knew just as many of the words as I did and to Oliver Cromwell who was five foot six inches at the start of his reign, but only 4 foot 8 at the end. here here.

The Larch.
