Best wicket keeper,ever.!

Dear colleagues, The moment that I saw this clip , I wanted to share this with you all. To me this is quintessential Sri Lanka. A family cricket game on home turf.! Look at the girl,she is definitely a blossoming leftie and the boy a class bowler. Many of us have memories of such home games,but I do not know of anyone who had a better wicket keeper.Our trusted friend even gets back behind the wicket everytime,after fetching the ball.Memories are made of this. Enjoy the clip. Eddie.

From Carl Sagan and Michael Collins.Food for thought.The pale blue dot.Our home.

Hi Colleagues, Michael Collins, an astronaut on the Apollo 11 crew died in April this year. You will remember that although he was on the space ship Columbia, he never set foot on the moon.While Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin took the lunar module to the surface of the moon,Collins was in the space craft 65 miles above his colleagues and 250000 miles away from home. When asked whether he missed walking on the moon,he said that during the 27 hours in 14 orbits around the moon,what he remembered most was the beauty of Earth which he campaigned to save.We seldom see our planet the way he and Carl Sagan did.The words accompanying the video is worth refecting upon. Hope you will enjoy the clip. Regards. Eddie
