'A sense of humour lends you poise, it gives you balance and it helps you to bend without breaking'

Me-no-know-a-thing; not.

You are currently reading a series of pre-scheduled posts. I have been absent from the Hutch for some time now and won't be back for another bit of time.

One of the reasons for absence is to visit old territory...(**furtive, under eyebrow glances**)... childhood memories and silent connections.

More will be revealed on my return. This post may now self-destruct...

Seriously folks. It was all hush-hush at the time. Yet I remember going there. A recent television show visited and looked at 'secret docs' which are now out of the thirty-year statute and can be investigated. Thing is, even the father, who had security clearance for his work there, was surprised by some of the things claimed.

That program claimed they had no images available to them to show what once stood on the site in question.

They clearly never thought to look up a certain electrical engineer in charge of construction!

Oh yes, it was all very 'engineery' and 1960s/70s, cold war at its height and all that.`

I remember Americans and CND and a certain fellow called Nikolai Viktorovich Podgorny.
I had started senior school and was studying modern history; am fascinated by history generally, but have a deep personal interest in the time from the first world war. The Russian revolution and development of the Soviet States, the language... 
A small part of history will be further revealed here. Sometime soon.
Now stand back. This thing might - just possibly, you can never tell - explode...


  1. Bcat reads or watches anything to do with WWII. He had one Uncle who was shot down and a POW for 18 months.
    Thankfully he returned home completed college and became a Chemistry Professor. But Uncle P never ever would talk about the War or his POW

  2. Crikey Aunty ..... PLEASE don't EXPLODE!!!!!

  3. I remember that time (as a child)... and yes I want to hear more...I loved hostory and I still love it... without learning about the past we will not understand the present and we can not build a future...

  4. the only thing I want to see is the explosison. I love fire and things that go boom and bang and care not one whit about what was on a site way back when. I will follow to see if this post implodes or explodes

  5. OOoOOOoOooo....I can't wait to read.....
    BTW, I have loads of security clearances...some of the work I do, I can't talk about..(I get to use the line, "If I told you, I'd have to kill you").
    I love that super secret stuFF!!!

  6. Oh I do love a good mystery, and you just written a compelling one. Can't wait to hear more.
