Speaking on the telephone a good friend suggested aliens were behind corona virus, I have commented on that in previous blogs, I have made a start. Here's the opening text:
Feshers week had been good but it did drag on, the new undergraduates were keen to get started on their courses. Doctor Kenneth Garwood did not approve of Freshers Week, a day would be long enough. Eventually both sides of the academic mind got their wish. The new undergraduates waited in anticipation for what this world renowned astrophysicist would say in their first lecture. Doctor K W S Garwood looked at the assembled faces in front of him, drew breath then began.
