Geoff maybe it will bring good luck and next year we will have a dry summer.

Left overs for dinner.

I just found a link to watch that freefaller that Pam was on about live, at 5PM.

Becks is it still going ahead?

09/10/2012 at 16:43

I think so Kate. I'll have a look at 5pm, see if it comes on. I would have thought if it was cancelled, it would say on there.

I can't help but notice one of the sponsered adverts underneath the video panel on that site is for funeral plans.

I'm watching but not sure what I am looking at?

09/10/2012 at 17:04

I think the white dot in the centre moving slightly left to right is the balloon?? Don't think he's jumped yet. Would help if there was commentary.

The skydive from space has been cancelled for today due to wind. Perhaps he's got that lurgy that's going around. He should take that lemon cure that Jean suggested.  Going to have a go tomorrow.

What  are they waiting for??

C******** ???

09/10/2012 at 17:07

Might be why we're not seeing anything Geoff!

What am I watching Lift off is not until 5.30pm.

09/10/2012 at 17:12

Well, Pam has just said it's cancelled, but the camera is moving, and zooming in and out!  Not sure.

A blob

Oh looked at Beck's link looks as though he's on his way. He's done two really high jumps before but someone else who tried cracked his helmet climbing out of the balloon's capsule and his blood boiled and brain exploded.

If he doesn't make it this time perhaps we could send Geoff up to raise funds for our football team.

This seems to be his official site, and there is a countdown timer going on the top left hand side for 55 mins.

They have started to inflate it but still weather dependent.

I have been away- is this happening or not?

We think there is a viewing going on next door-trying to multi-task

09/10/2012 at 17:24

Think so geoff. Depends on weather. Did you not read kates last comment?!

09/10/2012 at 17:30

Geoff tell us more, how many kids/cats/dogs?

09/10/2012 at 17:33

A couple by the look of it-didn't stay long and didn't do the lingering look-they left quite quickly

The cat has been spied drinking from a puddle

So what was ther white blob?
