Well, I tried a picture of my namesake, A 60, then my fizzog with the beautiful Rio Arade in the backdrop, both in our 60's but the Cambridge is in far better condition! Been around the globe and back, never been indoctrinated, wonderful parenting, some people are lucky in that respect. Still in awe of science and learning, don't suffer fools or expect to be suffered by others! I'm very happily married to my third wife of 16 yrs and have lived in Algarve Portugal for nearly 22 years. I have more friends here than I could ever have imagined being in the UK.The Portugues people are warm, extremely funny and if you are lucky enough to be considered family, the finest family one could ask for!

Austin-Cambridge comments on May 25, 2020:
That speaks volumes about people who still support Trump, there is no untruth in the article, all patently obvious to anyone with a modicum of common sense. Trump does not need any character assassins, he's doing a grand job himself!
Inquiring minds want to know!

Austin-Cambridge comments on May 13, 2020:
The establishment of Darwin's time, mostly the church, knew that his theory blew huge holes in the old testament of their holy book and refuted his scientific approach and some still do to this day. One does not have to think critically to see whose theory holds water, It would help those who can't accept evolution over "creation" to learn to think as we try to!

Austin-Cambridge comments on May 1, 2020:
Perspectives is a difficult call, we have strictly observed social distancing here for nearly 2 months, having little or no contact with others is strange but bearable. I find myself adjusting to our new (and hopefully temporary) normal to the point where I feel quite content and ready to continue even if restrictions are lifted. I'd say 15% difference, that being lack of contact with people I normally enjoy interaction and conversation and don't have contact details for!

I am one of eight children, two sisters perished in childhood unhappily, six remain to this day, our lovely sister and five brothers! The one thing imprinted in my mind was my mothers patience, kind nature and uncomplaining attitude! Being of a time when mothers were allowed to be mothers exclusively and not expected to work to supplement the family income, made an enormous difference, It's a great shame that we cannot revert to those great days!

Austin-Cambridge comments on Apr 18, 2020:
Clearly financial motives, the decision process is in the hands of politicians, none of whom want to be blamed for an economic down slide, there lies the problem, the vacuum that has been seen between the facts being received and action being taken, has been used for "evaluating" the political damage versus the social, a mistake that scientists would not have made, their advice was ignored for too long!

Austin-Cambridge comments on Apr 12, 2020:
The most striking thing for me, having gone through the comments bellow, is the polarization that Donald Trump has created in American society, the fact that some still feel he is viable as a president is testament to the utter stupidity of his staunch supporters. A great president would surely unite his nation against all adversaries and would protect his people from any harm, not divide the people with sham political divisions and financial considerations!
Early in my CT studies, I realized that asking even a simple question in writing is not as simple as...
Austin-Cambridge comments on Apr 12, 2020:
Some of the comments below convey exactly what you are trying to get across, do people actually read this stuff? The importance of unambiguous communication is a vital element in any field of investigation or any correspondence, sarcasm and links to .com's mean little to me but speak volumes about those who answer viable propositions with such disrespect!

Austin-Cambridge comments on Apr 12, 2020:
Having been born in Birmingham England in 1955, I have never met an American Indian but can sympathize with your portrayal. There were many Asians and West Indies children at my primary school, one of my most enduring memories of that time was the first snow one winter, the immigrant kids had never experienced it and were dancing around the playground catching snow in their mouths, a wonderful sight. Racism was rife at this time amongst adult whites, I never understood why, I just kept that lovely memory of my chums being happy!
This sums it up in a nutshell....
Austin-Cambridge comments on Apr 11, 2020:
Well, the American dream is all about commerce and profits, never been about compassion!
