How the bloody hell that worked, I do not know. What I know is that we're finally going home!!! Vaughan's gone with the Saccran and I hope I never hear from him or anyone else associated with this again!
Well...almost anyone. Christine and I have exchanged numbers, addresses and email addresses and we plan to keep in touch. And speaking of keeping in touch, Christine says there might be a way to keep in touch with the Shiiran...something about wormholes or the like...? I'm not sure-whenever anyone starts talking about complicated physics, I tend to zone out.
Having said all that, I think I can see a trip to America to visit Chris coming up for me in the not too distant future...
