« on: January 11, 2018, 09:43:28 »

Are there really simulator games that are so involved that people actually just sit there at virtual airports being the ATC's waiting for someone else to come into land?! :blink

It's drifting slightly off topic, but a few years back I saw in my local newsagent wall calendar display rack, amongst the numerous Dog and Cat and the horror section (Cliff Richard and Englebert Humperdink) there was a :-

"Goats in Trees"  Calendar

Strange you mention goats in trees, I snapped the following in Kos  a few years ago. They were also quite musical , we asked the goatherd what was causing the trumpet sound effects and he showed us some bulb like plants they were eating. For an animal with hooves their ability to balance on thin bendy branches was amazing..   :laugh:
