Re: Random Chat!!! (All Welcome!)

I'm about to send in a voicemail message to JBR for the upcoming mailbag episode as i haven't done it in ages. Any tips and advice? I have recorded a number of times and nearly bottled it.

Have you ever heard of the Emancipation Proclamation?"

I asked a question while some of us watched FRWL last night, bus sadly we were sidetracked by the movie and the sad fact that I wrote Fleming wrong  ajb007/amazed .
I wondered how the people who worked on the Enigma code machine reacted when they read or watched FRWL? Many of us know the Germans thought the Enigma code was never broken while the fact that the British broke the code was one of the most closely guarded secrets of WWII. Many of us also know Ian Fleming was one of the few who were allowed to know this. I picture one of those few Germans and British who knew about Enigma sitting in the cinema going: "Hold on, that muct be ……."
Did they suspect Fleming was in on the secret? Do we know of any reactions to the Enigma/Lektor link?
What do you think the reactions were?


One member of the history forum replied:

I certainly remember seeing at least one interview with an ex Wren codebreaker from the 90s or early 2000s where she spoke of her shock and, to an extent, sense of betrayal when the book came out. She had never even told her own family what she really did in the war.

In an obvious effort to outdo CHB I'm re-posting two videos of avalanches from my county. The top one is from this week.

I just saw the SpeceX rocket on TV. It's probably a good thing the US won't be dependent on Russia to launch Rockets into space.
It's also nice to see I have better weather than Florida right now.   ajb007/shifty
