No matter how bad things were getting my Gran used to give a lopsided grin and say calmly "Never mind, it'll all be over in a hundred years time."

When Kennedy and Kruschev were playing 'Mine's bigger than yours' I really thought it might be a lot sooner than that...  A pretty heavy thought for a schoolkid to deal with.

Ah, I shall be eternally grateful that I was only seven at the time, and so didn't really understand what was going on. I can still see the pictures on the news of the Russian (Soviet) ships turning round...

Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of
arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to
skid in sideways - Chardonnay in one hand - open throttle in the other -
body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming : "Woo Hoo, what
a ride!"

I looked at it and the Americans went 'wow man it's brilliant!' and the Brits went 'yeah its alright' so I knew we'd done a good job.
