STEPHEN KING -11.22.63

The day that changed the world. What if you could change it back ?
On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
If you had the chance to change history, would you?

Would the consequesnces be worth it?

The Book so Far – Jake goes to see Al and tells him about wanting to change recent history the election of algo or the 9/11 tragedy in New York but I’ll points out Jake would almost be 80 years old by the time, By the time of these events occur so would he even be taken seriously

Al then says he wants Jake to save John F Kennedy and he done a lot of research and he’s a 100% sure that he was the one who lone gunman Lee Harvey Oswald in fact he even met the guy on several occasions and that Jake has the best opportunity to stop him

But Al then tells him about two people who he once tried to save a lady in a wheelchair who got accidentally shot by a stray bullet but because everything resets when you return you only get one shot and because Jake went through the hole in time the lady ended up back in her wheelchair because I’ll never told Jake exactly what to do. 

And now the Continuation –  Part One –  Watershed Moment –  Chapter Four

  1. Jake helps Al into the bedroom and Al tells Jake to read the note book and come back in morning
  2. Heavy with sleep and almost drunk Scotch at home Jake thinks more and more about the girl in the wheelchair and JFK sure he can change things but would it make things better and then about Harry
  3. Jake wakes up from a bad dream with words ‘Kowabunga, Buffalo Bob in his head and Harry’s story to so he goes to find it.
  4. Jake reads the frist page of Harry’s story again
  5. Jake rings Al and tells him he wants to show him something. Al says sure and Al wants to know if he’s desired yet Jake thinks he has but wants to make another trip back before he really has
  6. Jake takes Harry story with him, and Al reads it Jake wants to stop Harry’s dad from killing. Sure Al says but will it work any better than Carolyn. Jake wants a better test Al understands and goes out of the room to get something
  7. Its a box and inside it are paper work and ID in the name of George Amberson. Al put all this stuff together when he knew me wasn’t going to make to 1963. 
  8. Al and Jake going to the dinner one last time Al give Jake a fifty cent piece for the yellow card man. Whatever happens Al will be here when Jake gets back shake hands and Jake briefcase in hand walks down the steps

What I think – I like the little things Al has it all worked out the paperwork the money and even how Jake should talk, I like the fact Jake’s not been underhanded about trying to help Harry and that Al wants him to do both. How he’s going to get everything to work is another thing I am looking forward to finding out.

Hope you can join me for that, So thank you for reading and see you next week.

    All The Right Words – The Hunt For Red October By Tom Clancy – Book – The Eighth Day

    The following blog has spoilers for the Tom Clancy book The Hunt For Red October this your one and only warning.

    Somewhere under the Atlantic, a Soviet sub commander has just made a fateful decision.

    The Red October is heading west.
    The Americans want her.
    The Russians want her back
    And the most incersdible chase in history is on…

    Recap the Seventh day -Jack and Admiral Davenport meet Admiral centre on the USS Kennedy and Jack kalson that somehow they need to stop and locate the Red October,

    Jonesy the submarine sonar man on the Dallas has worked out the sound he heard a few days before is not only man-made but it’s moving around the Ocean Floor he then asked his captain for permission to ask the fleet if they can go and find it.

    Jack is then flown by harrier Jump Jet to the British ship and they’re also asks the British the same help in finding and locating and hopefully stopping the red october before the Russians can.

    On the red october the doctor sees the radiation badges are showing low level walks around the ship which have him very concerned he then asked for permission from the captain to take action.But in truth the badgers have been tampered with by Ramius second in command using the x-ray machine.

    Back in the Pentagon the British and us ships are moved around the world by two feuding Admirals.

    Deep within the bowels of the engine room of the red october a radiation leak test is carried out by members of the crew who are becoming very very uneasy about the idea of a radiation  but the crew finds nothing so the captain decides to do the test again.

    THE EIGHTH DAY FRIDAY, 10 DECEMBER pages 159- 196

    HMS Invincible.
    Jack wakes up and makes himself presentable believing he is being sleep for 6 hours but when Admiral white comes into the room he is informed that he has been asleep for 18 hours and the sun in the sky he believed was setting was in fact Rising the Invincible rendezvous with two Knox class frigates in two hours to have already been on their radar they will also be joined by two more Perry class vessels a total of nine warships the Kennedy is racing for the exhaust so that leaves the invisible guarding the American coast in Simple Words the mission is well underway.

    The White House.
    Ambassador Alexei Arbatov goes to the White House and the president asked him why the Soviet Navy are in the North Atlantic the Ambassador try to say he has no idea but the president calls him a liar and if if it should happen they should have given prior notification again the Ambassador says he has no knowledge of this and they may be more games which is a lie the president says he will reply the American ships and aircraft to observe what is going on the Ambassador will transmit a message and tell his superiors what the president has said what but with the different time zones the president will have to wait for a reply when the Ambassador leaves the president comment that it’s like dealing with the mafia bosses he was prosecuted.

    CIA HEADQUARTERS
    The spy codename CARDINAL is in trouble he has been sent to hospital with pneumonia but the information that he has been sending has not gone though the proper channels and the Russians are on to him judge Moore tells the station chief to lay off and no more enquiries as it is time that the CARDINAL to leave the company.

    The U.S.Naval Academy
    Skip Tyler gets a message from the Admiral for an appointment at the Pentagon for 19:30 hours that evening.

    The White House
    The Russian ambassador goes back to the white house and tells the president what are there submarines is now missing the president then tells the Ambassador he hoped they can help improve relations with their two countries by offering assistance of the US Navy in search of the missing some playing on the fact that the US owe the Russians a debt after helping them in a similar crisis. But the Russian ambassador is very reluctant to take Help from The Americans.

    The Pentagon
    Skip Tyler was sat at the Air Force control centre in the sub basement of the Pentagon he was proud of his programmability and what would have taken some people and months work he had done in 4 days. On a trip to the bathroom for a much needed rest skip learns from an old friend captain Johnny Coleman that the Russians have put a major exercise using the whole northern Sea Fleet.
    So he goes back to the computer and with the print outs he makes a phone call he dead heads up a small ramp and eventually fancies where to Vice Admiral Dodge’s corner office and questions his former boss on the movements of the Russian subs so the Admiral take SIM into a second room showing the movement of both the Soviet ships in red and the American allied ships in blue. Skip notices the movements of the Russian submarine do not work as a search and rescue because they are blocking a couple of the ports he can’t tell Dodge exactly so he then tried to ring Dr Ryan but obviously no one knows where Ryan is so then he rings Admiral Greer who then asked him to come to the CIA headquarters

    CIA HEADQUARTERS.
    Tyler makes into Admiral Greer’s office and asked where Jack is only to be told that he’s away he lock unlock his briefcase and gives grey the information but grey what’s the short version not reams and reams of paper. Showing the computer model he’s been working on.
    Admiral Greer then let Tyler ask a few questions. The name of the ship and if she’s at sea then Tyler explains he thinks the red october is going to defect so great else in the truth yes the Russian submarine Red October he’s going to defect but they have no way yet and being able to track her he also tells Tyler that at some point they must give the submarine back but Tyler has a solution that may let them keep the Red October.

    The USS Pogy
    The USS poguy was 200 miles northwest of Norfolk awaiting the arrival of two Soviet class Alfa submarines the assign mission was to track and Shadow.

    The ES Politovskiy
    The Politovskiy acoustical signature had been labelled alpha 3 by the Americans although she was really the first alpha a small spindle shaped attack submarine which was capable of reaching 43 knots but her sea trials have come at a cost of several mishaps so ever since that ship has been marked as a bad luck.
    And now they are suffering from bad luck as there is a catastrophic loss of coolant in the reactor which forces them to the surface just in front of the US listening posts.

    The USS Pogy
    On the Pogy here the Politovskiy break the surface of the water.

    The ES Politovskiy
    On surface the reactor of the Politovskiy still critical begins to rip through spicy texts and finally Falls back below the water sinking to the bottom of the sea.

    The Pogy
    The men of the American sub a helpless to help their Russian counterparts.

    The ES Politovskiy
    It takes a full 9 minutes for the Russian sub to fall the Ocean Floor she impact savagely on the hard bottom of the continental shelf and there aircrew ass bed the slow death of asphyxiation.

    What I think – It’s a very interesting story line so far it’s not just the normal spy story of one man against the world or one man against whoever this chapter has been all about what goes on in the background. Tyler example of still going through simulation and being told what has happened, and then the Russians and then the unfortunate accidents on the Russian submarine and the Americans been unable to help.

    If you have been thank you for reading and as always see you next week for the next chapter.

    Narrowboat Ezri – The 100 Miles Adventure – The Same but Different

    This a weekend and the last I swapped the tranquility of Ezri and the Macclesfield Canal for 44,000 hysterical fans screaming and that make up the Robbie Williams and Take That fan bases respectfully at the City of Manchester Football Stadium

    I am going to do something that don’t normally do which talk about my day job, I am not going to huge detail because of the way are now. The whole idea is to try and show you the contrast of my life on Ezri and work. 

    The first thing is that Ezri is only 35 feet long and if I not on her all, she does is sit in the water chained the bank, but the stadium is a hive of activity, not only with the crew of stage hands, staff from four/five companies, food and beverage staff and finally the fans themselves. Each member of staff working out the best method to help the fans enjoy the nights.

    The second this the sound the only sound Ezri makes come from her engine and then only when she’s moving. But as you may have guessed the stadium is full of sound and I not talking about the music the band played its, the sound of the crowd its a sound that you don’t really get over I have been doing this job for 11 years and still something that takes me a little by Surprise it some travels though you like water, 44,000 people all singing and dancing as one.

    The last thing this kind of the same that’s what happens when it to end and move on to the next place, In Ezri’s case it just a simple matter of pulling up our chains and setting off, but when it’s time for the event to move on it takes the same stage hands and riggers a good few hours to take down all the steel, lights and Speaker systems all to be put back together again at  the other end of their journey.

    Thank you for this weeks little side step As always thank you reading and see you next week. Which will have a lot more narrowboats in it.

    STEPHEN KING -11.22.63

    The day that changed the world. What if you could change it back ?
    On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
    President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
    If you had the chance to change history, would you?

    Would the consequesnces be worth it?

    The Book so Far – Jake takes a few steps into Al store room and finds himself in building site the dinner has gone and everything looks like a 1950 noir flim, the frist person Jake sees is the green card man and hands over the sliver dollar, He then makes is way out of the site he’s still in the same town. So he goes into shop and finds a newspaper the date reads September 9th 1958. The man is in fact the father of a man he knows. Jake spends a few minutes looking around the main street Comparing the things that he sees to the things he knows about the town.

    He finally decides to go back into the construction site and find the makers he put down and steps which let him into this world, he gets back to find that only two minutes have past and Al lets him that not only its always two minutes but each time is like the frist the people you interact with don’t remember the one seems to is the green card man. Al has something for to Jake to do but the pain is much a needs a rest so they will meet up in six hour at Al’s home. 

    Jake spends the hours thinking about what he saw and the feeling to go back builds.

    And now the Continuation –  Part One –  Watershed Moment –  Chapter Three

    1. Jake goes to see Al who not only tells Jake he will be in hospital soon, (even if he had chemo and radiation, two doctors have told him this one in Portland and the other in Dallas 1963) but the dinner is done with to its rented space.
    2.  Jake asks Al wants going to happen to the hole when they move the dinner, Al has no idea its a freak of nature Jake thinks he knows want Al wants him to do but is not happy about it. but in the end hears the old man out.
    3. Al talks about going back 2000 and paying people to vote for Al Gore not Bush, but when it comes to history is full of watershead  moments like that they can’t stop the frist and second world wars and 9.11 Jake would have wait forty three years and be pushing eighty. But 1963 John F. Kennedy can live.
    4. Jake is afraid and needs to be convinced, so Al says just go back again and if you get stuck be the teacher you are or bet on things like he did for the four years me lived there. And then the butterfly affect who RFK be at the Ambassador all things of things that link into that one action by Lee Oswald. Jake wants to make sure that Al is right it was all one man, Al is sure and even meet the man Why not kill him then Jake asks infornt of the mans wife and child. Al has written all this down he needs Jake to cram the thing like a test. Al wants Jake to stop Oswald a year and a half before 
    5. Jake’s not sure and asks long he got before the dinner is gone, until the end of the month, one more thing Al has to tell Jake is about Carolyn Poulin and Andy Cullum.
    6. Al tells Jake about the first few years of using the hole and about him carving his name in a tree and coming back it find it, knowing things can be changed he starts to look for an for accident A twentyone year old girl is hit Stray bullet from Andy Cullum gun So Al goes back with a little help from a felted tree he stops Andy Cullum returning to 2011 Al looks up Carolyn but she not in Graduation photo she in the 64 one and in 1979 she winning prizes in Albany New York. But every trip down the rabbit hole is a reset and with Jake going back it time Carolyn is back in her wheelchair.

      What I Think – Al’s been trying to save everyone at the cost of his own health, after working things can changed but they are a one shot deal, as the reset kicks in everytime you come back. You stay and change everything or come back and nothing you do matters. How is Jake going wait that long in the past the save JFK.

      Hope you can join me for that, So thank you for reading and see you next week.

      All The Right Words – The Hunt For Red October By Tom Clancy – Book – The Seventh Day

      The following blog has spoilers for the Tom Clancy book The Hunt For Red October this your one and only warning.

      Somewhere under the Atlantic, a Soviet sub commander has just made a fateful decision.

      The Red October is heading west.
      The Americans want her.
      The Russians want her back
      And the most incersdible chase in history is on…

      Recap The Sixth Day -Jack Ryan and Greer are given information by the CIA director himself about a spy they have working in the Soviet shipyards.

      On the Red October Ramius thinks may be sending the letter could have been a mistake but Quickly changes his mind, as it Prevents second thoughts.

      Jack, Greer and the  CIA director go to the white house and Ryan has to breathe the president all about Red October and it’s new engine then the facts about Ramius and his defection and about want action if any they should take plan they come up with is that someone should try and find the Red October with thw help of the British and that someone should be Jack

      THE SEVENTH DAY THURSDAY, 9 DECEMBER pages 119- 158

      The North Atlantic
      Jack is well on his way in one of the bucket seats of Grumman Greyhound ot COD flying through a storm at 5000 feet, Jack hates it but the two pilots were enjoying it, Jack dislikes flying. He his head he Thinks about his previous life as a marine second lieutenant and it only 3 months earlier when you put two helicopter classed on Crete during NATO exercises nearly crippling him for life.

      The land but ohly just on the deck of the Kennedy, Jack makes a bolt for the Kennedy’s control tower but that has to wait for Admiral Davenport who just like pilots enjoyed the trip.The whole Kennedy is a mass of steel gun metal grey boxes on top of boxes, Which has Ryan totally confused but not the admiral who leads them to the flag officer quarters.

      The Admiral introduces Ryan to add rear Admiral Joshua Painter Ryan and then apologises for dressing as a naval officer because it was a CIA idea and then after Painter calls for food Ryan tells them everything. Painter is not to happy and even less so when Davenport says he would the Kennedy to Locate the Red October and somehow make communication contact with is skipper.

      And now somehow keep the thing, Jack is on his way again this time on a Harrier Jump Jet.

      The Dallas
      The soanar man Jones has been working aways on the unknown contact they made a few days ago and he thinks he knows what it could be so him and his senior officer go talk to Captain Mancuso, Jones has been working on his down time with his own charts, and tapes he’s made the sound is man made not only that but The same acoustical signature as a Russian submarine..

      Mancuso lets Jones talk and it all makes Makes sense so Mancuso decides that they will track this Russian submarine and he contacts Norfolk come on base to tell him of what they have found out.

      Atlantic Fleet Communications
      In Norfolk they get the message the Dallas is requesting to Leave the area of Patrol and investigate the unusual sounding characteristics of the submarine. They are given leave and they set off.

      The K. V. Konovalov
      200 miles Northeast of the Dallas in the Norwegian sea on the Konovalov Captain Tupolev has tow day old dispatch telling him of Ramius actions, He knows he will have kill Ramius no matter that he was family.

      The North Atlantic 
      The British Sea Harrier FRS 4 hovered briefly off Kennedy’s port saide as the pilot sized up at landing target. A few minutes later its down and  Tony Parker is helping Ryan into the spare seat. In less that a minute they are back in the air. All the time Ryan is watching the read outs which helps.

      They both talk a bit and it turns out they know each other but Ryan says not to tell anyone. They land and Ryan is taken to see Vice Admiral John White, Yet again Ryan the Vice Admiral the mission which is to Locate the Red October And for the British help and assistance they will get access to the same intelligence the Americans have on the ship if and when they are able to stop and locate it.

      The Red October
      Every two days all the radiation badges of all the crew are checked by Borodin and handed over to Doctor Petrov, he had the whole action down to a science. But today something has gone wrong something very wrong a few of the badgers are contaminated but not by anything in the ship. But in fact two days before they sailed borodin himself contaminated the badges using the doctors own x-ray machine. The doctor calls Ramius Borodin and they go through the motions of finding a leak and reassuring the doctor.

      The Pentagon
      Deep within one of the officers of the Pentagon lieutenant general Edwin Harris is playing Peacemaker between Admiral Blackburn and Rear Admiral Pete Stafford as all three of them tried to work out the movement of Soviet British and American fleets.

      The Red October
      Chief engineer Melekhin cleaned the reactor components before the starting to check for the leak watched by Ramius, Petrov, the engineering officer and one of the young the tenants three of the officers are carrying Geiger counters. All the readings are in the normal range but the chief engineer makes them do it again from the beginning.An hour later that second check has been completed. still nothing Just the contaminated badges.

      What I think – Well its haavy going there is a lot to take in and lot you can miss if your not careful, The whole Jones checking the acoustical signature was simple and easy to follow but then you get bogged down by the background on the harrier pilot and the fact that he knows Ryan and there is whole bit about shooting trip. So how each person works out want and why the people around are doing something.

      If you have been thank you for reading and as always see you next week for the next chapter.

      Narrowboat Ezri – The 100 Miles Adventure – Pinned to the Bank

      It’s now time to leave Macclesfield which easier said than done having looked at both canal plan and google maps the place I want to end up at, just the other side of a bridge in walk distance Macclesfield town football ground looked fine, but it was only when we (me and dad) walked down there did we it was over grown on the towpath side and shallow in places so I back tracked a little level with a place called Sutton/Sutton Hall just after the end of the three day moorings.

      Ezri been on the Macclesfield for quite sometime now and some of its been very simple to moor up using chains, but few times using pins which in some cases don’t work so well as people speeding make them lose, or in this case the space that was left I could get Ezri’s front in but not her back end, which stuck out just a little bit and no matter now hard I tried to pull her into the side of the bank. 

      I had planned to lift Ezri’s weed hatch to check out a few things out, but that will have to wait until the next moving/Maintenance day before I can do that. which I am going to move around just to make up for very small trip this week. So for now I not as far along as I would have like and things I want to do will be dangerous, as Ezri is literally on pins.

      As always thank you reading and see you next week.

      Total Miles covered so far (Start point Bugsworth) =  27 miles 4 furlongs

      Miles covered this trip =  7 1/4 furlongs

      Places been/Stopped- Bugsworth, Strines Road Narrows, Carr Swing Bridge, Bancroft Bridge No 8, Higher Poynton Winding Hole, Braddocks Bridge No. 19, Lane Head Winding Hole, Clark’ Change Bridge, Leadbeater’s Bridge No 40

      STEPHEN KING -11.22.63

      The day that changed the world. What if you could change it back ?
      On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
      President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
      If you had the chance to change history, would you?

      Would the consequesnces be worth it?

      The Book so Far – In the frist person we meet Jake Epping who is teacher, who teachs a Adult English Class, one of pupils Harry Dunning has just graduated and togehter they for a burger at place they both know a run by a man called Al Templeton.

      Two years later Harry’s last day of work, Jake gets a call from Al who asks him to come when Jake gets there it becomes clear that something is wrong Al is now sick in fact dying, but Jake doesn’t believe a man because 24 hours ago he was fit and healthy, 

      Al wants Jake to see something the Kitchen stores, When I get there Al ask Jake to remove all the metal objects from he’s clothes and then hand him some several more bills and a silver dollar for somebody called the Yellow card man.

      And the Continuation.- Part One – Watershed Moment – Chapter Two.

      1. With his eyes shut Jake takes a few into the pantry but finds himself outside in a courtyard and Al’s diner is gone.
      2. He can see Al but he can hear him, he tells Jake he can get back the same way just feel for the steps but to look around frist. Jake is still in Lisbon Falls, Maine but when
      3. Still unsure what is really going on Jake marks the steps first with paper then a rock and takes a few step into the street, almost knocking down a wino looking like his straight out a 1950 film noir it turns out be the yellow card man so Jake gives the man the half rock (sliver dollar)
      4. He leaves the man a walks out into the world, touching a Plymouth fury car is hard and warm from the sun and very very real, standing at the corner of main street and route 196, the Kennebec Fruit Company now alive selling real friut and not the faded cold shell Jake knows, after watching a bus go by and thinking want if it ran him over. and nodding at a kid looking like James Dean/early Elvis heads inside a shop the newspapers tell him its September 9th 1958
      5. He picks up a paper and meets a younger Frank Anicetti who sells him root beer, but this turns out to be the father not the son. All three of them talk frist about a story by Shirley Jackson and then about route 117 all the time Jake just enjoying the world. he finishes his root beer and asks for the greenfront which turns out to a liqour store
      6. Not wanting to push his luck because of his clothes Jake feels it better he just head back to the courtyard making his way see the yellow card man buying some liqour in courtyard once more he finds the steps and just like before almost blacksout but Al’s there to help
      7. Al that explains that every time you back that only two minutes in time here and that every time is the first time for the people there like meeting you all over agian, only the yellow card man. Al wants to talk but needs to rest and needs to go home he and Jake will talk more there later in that night
      8. Jake goes home and waits for the six hours to pass but can’t think straight and at one point even believes that Al may have hypnotised him, He does the only thing that makes sense he drives to Main street. It was as if 1958 worth still right here only hidden in film of the intervening years. What did Al show him all this for did Al want him to do something and had the cancer stop you from doing it, Jake now what’s to go back.

          What I Think – So we have ourselves a time travel story which I could have guessed, but not just a stuck back in the past one and not just for the 11.22.63 is 1958 and both Jake and Al can move though time, I guessing Al spent to much time in the past so that’s why he’s really dyeing. How JFK finds into all this who knows but we shall see.

          Hope you can join me for that, So thank you for reading and see you next week.

          All The Right Words – The Hunt For Red October By Tom Clancy – Book – The Sixth Day

          The following blog has Spoilers for the Tom Clanitsbook The Hunt For Red October this your one and only warning.

          Somewhere under the Atlantic, a Soviet sub commander has just made a fateful decision.

          The Red October is heading west.
          The Americans want her.
          The Russians want her back
          And the most incersdible chase in history is on…

          Recap The Fifth Day – In Moscow Admiral Yuri Ihch Padorin get the letter from the Red October which sets all of Ramis plans, So Padorin calls Admiral Govshkow.

          The Dallas after the war games with the british, is now reporting the traffic moving in and out of Red Route One, Jones the sonar tec hears something he knows is not right he tells both the first officer and the captian, it sounds like ‘water being pushed though a pipe’ they tell him to run it though the computer which tells him the sound its just magama displacemet.

          Back in the CIA Greer and Ryan now have information the Russians now have all their ships/subs at they have no idea why but know is not a sea trairs. Rayn now has to stay a extra day trying to work out why.

          THE SIXTH DAY, WEDNESDAY 8 DECEMBER  pages 91- 118

          CIA Headquarters
          Ryan and Greer are in the officer of the director of Central Intelligence Arthur Moore, They each have a copy of the WILLOW docment from an angent called CARDINAL is Jack is not to sure about (what this infromation is we are never told we just get the history of CARDINAL.

          Reykjanes Ridge
          As the Red October head southwest Ramius thinks about his crew perhaps the letter has been a mistake, No it prevented second thoughts

          The White House
          Judge Moore takes Jack to the White House and the Situation Room a hand of people Jack has talked with before,everyone tells Jack not be nervous and to relax and the president walks in the door everyone stands.

          And then they turn to Jack his briefing is about the recent Soviet navel activity in the North Atlantic sea.

          Ryan then goes on to give them detailed specifications and the history of the Red October and her captain then telling about seeking a second opinion on the bow doors from Mr Oliver W. Tyler and now thanks to extra intelligence they know that Ramius has sent a letter and that as the whole Soviet Navy move out.

          In simple words the Russians are trying to locate Red October and if necessary to sink her, So what happens when they reach our coast is the question. Ryan believes that Ramius wants to defect. It not about a Preemptive strike on anybody because around me is could have released his missiles five days ago a still hit 

          The question now becomes why and is just him or the whole 110 men, so after a lot of back and forth its worked that its just the officers how many who knows but the rest of the crew wouldn’t know and just be following along.

          So what do we do The president asks Ryan his simple answer is we grab her, and is back up the judge Whether the whole thing is some kind of elaborate hoax by the soviets or it is true ramius is trying to defect action must be taken.

          it comes down to action they can take they will want the sub back her people to, they could call it a quarantine inspection, check her for seaworthiness, but they are getting a head of thereselves frist they need to find her and for that they need help.

          The British have a carrier out there to help, Admiral Greer will go to England and ask nicely as for telling their people they needed to be told just in case. And some needs to talk to the Soviets once they get into open water.

          The meeting ends and Ryan is about to leave when Moore ask him to step to one side the President wants Jack to fly out to the British carrier so he can be a civilian point of view. Ryan is not happy about put as the President points out Jack knows the history of the thing.

          CIA HEADQUARTERS
          Moore and Jack head back to CIA,Jack is given naval Commander uniform as cover with all the usual ribbons, the whole thing is given the codename, MANDOLIN Jack thinks Halloween would be better.

          What I Think – And we’re off Jack on his way to sea and the CIA are asking for help from the british, nice and simple what I didn’t need was the whole history and life story of the spy the CIA had in Russia, and then only finding out about the information four or five pages later. I had read to same page three times just to make sure I hadn’t miss something. We know Ramuis Motivation and we don’t need him second guessing himself for two pages.

          If you have been thank you for reading and as always see you next week for the next chapter.

          Narrowboat Ezri – The 100 Miles Adventure – Lines Of Communications

          The question I get asked the most when people find out I live on a narrowboat is, how do you get the internet? Well until last week I would just point at my phone or the little tablet, that the nice people at EE setup. Which simply put was two sim cards one for the phone with text, calls and data and the other for the tablet some calls and texts but mostly data about 2GB in all.

          But all that changed a few days ago not only do I have a new Phone and tablet but new something called mifi box which I am told works like the wifi my dad has, I set everything up so that the data is about 6GB split between the box thing and my tablet. The phone is just the phone text, calls and little data.

          All are able to make emergency calls if needed and give my location too, I may be out in the middle of no where but I not totally out of communication range, when I frist started living on Ezri all I had was nine year old laptop which I would only have two hours use with a day, a simple phone, a road atlas and printed out paper plans of the route from Blue Water Marina to Littleborough

          But now almost two a bit years down the line I can not only plan and plot my whole 100 miles Adventure, work out within two or three meters were Ezri is and were she will end up. And all of this I wanted can be broadcast and shared with the world. 

          As always if you have done thanks for reading, and see you next week.

          On November 22, 1963, Three shots rang out in Dallas,
          President Kennedy died,and the world changed.
          If you had the chance to change history, would you?

          Would the consequesnces be worth it?
          Part One – Watershed Moment – Chapter One.

          It would it would appear that chapter ome is split into six little sections.

          1. Harry Dunning graduated with flying colours and having no family he invites Jake Epping his teacher and after that they go for a burger at place called Al’s who take a photo of them a hangs it on the wall.
          2. Two years later Harry Is now retiring from his job as custodian at the school, when he gets a phone call from Al who asks him to come to see him
          3. When Jake gets there the welcome sign now CLOSED & WILL NOT REOPEN DUE TO ILLNESS. THANK YOU FOR YOUR BUSINESS OVER THE YEARS & GOD BLESS. Al lets Jake in and Al is now ill in fact he’s dying, Jake can’t understand how in less that 24 hours
          4. Al had lung cancer but facts of how he got don’t add up for Jake, Al tells him he’s got something to show him. Which the storage for the restaurant
          5. Al ask Jake to give him the Contents of his pockets here show him it’s not a robbery and he will be giving everything back In fact Al gives Jake even more money.
          6. He then tells Jake about some strange man called ‘the yellow card man’ and he must give a sliver fifty cent piece to hand over,  Jack has really no ide wants going ,But decides to humour a dying man so he steps forward but as he steps forward his foot passes through something.

            What I think – Well so good it not want I expecting in fact is a very enjoyable read so far from the size of the book itslef not sure what role Harry plays in all this or why Al is now a dying man, I just going to have to carry on.
