This tape shows a discussion in New York City with Vincent Bugliosi who published a book in May 2007, to put to rest all the conspiracy theories on the assassination of President Kennedy over the past 44 years.
However as reported in Telegraph.co.uk dated 02.07.2007 Lee Harvey Oswald could not have acted alone according to a new study by Italian weapons experts of the type of rifle Oswald used in the shootings. In fresh tests of the Mannlicher-Carcano bolt-action weapon supervised by the Italian army, it was found impossible for even an accomplished marksman to fire the shots quickly enough, and this will fuel continuing theories that Oswald was part of a larger conspiracy to murde the 35th American president on 22 November 1963.
The official Warren Commision inquiry concluded that Oswald was a lone gunman who fired three shots with a Carcano M91/38 bolt-action reifle in 8.3 seconds.
But when the Italian team test-fired the identical model of the gun, they were unable to load and fire three shots in less than 19 seconds - suggesting that a second gunman must have been present in Dealey Plaza, central Dallas on that day.

He looks rather puzzled as well he might. This lady was a maverick dress deigner from the 1980's who used to embarrass governments with her T-shirt slogans, now she is dragging the rest of the fashion world up to her ethical standards by persuading Tescos to stock her organic clothing range. She is a one-off, interested in Budddhism and building a concentrated solar-powered, low-tech power station in Africa. A remarkable woman.

My mother Ethel Phyllis Harris at age say 19, she was born in Wiltshire and eventually married my father and lived in Old Town, Eastbourne where I was born in 1933. We should always treasure our mother, and I miss mine since she died in 1969. I have a huge framed copy of this photo, and I shall never forget her.
These photographs were taken about 40 years ago, and we haven't worn that well when looking in the mirror now ! I have recently acquired an Epson Perfection V100 Scanner ( 3200 x 9600 dpi Optical Resolution ) and this enables me to store selectively my old pre-Digital photos. Playtime is here again.

Diana and " The Count "
The body was coachbuilt with a fabric covered roof, and the car was very heavy so the performance was not brilliant, it also had cable brakes and so it would have been very dangerous to insist on your right of way when I approached a zebra crossing, and luckily nobody ever did.

Facts, Truth, Lies and Fiction
The Shorter OED (2 Volumes) says...... A thing done or performed (1815).... something that has really occured ( as distinct from conclusions ) (1632).....Truth; reality (1581)..... Legal meaning = The circumstances and incidents of a case, as distinct from their legal bearing (1718.)
So it seems that Truth and Fact come together, but when swearing in court we say ...The truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth, yet not long ago a diplomat giving evidence admitted that " he had been economical with the truth" how does this square with the main definition of a fact above and truth below ?
The OED says........ Conformity with fact; agreement with reality; accuracy; correctness (of statement or thought) 1570 ; Genuineness
The OED says........To speak falsely.....To convey a false impression.....To be deceptive.
My case is that we all lie most of the time, often without realising it, we are economical with the truth!
Also although it may be a fact that something has occured, the truth behind that occurance as to how, why, and by whom is often far from certain. And as beauty is in the eye of the beholder, so truth can have many variations for different people.
OED says........Invention as opposed to fact......Fictitious composition now mainly novels and stories.....A supposition known to be at variance with fact.
Some facts are certain, but there are many versions of the truth, most people lie most of the time, even if the lies are "white", and though fiction may be invented, it is often based on facts.
So what does any of that prove? Lovely picture though .....See below " TRUTH "

The Empire State Building - NYC
If you click the above you will access the New York Times website, and try playing the video on the 75th Anniversary of the Empire State Building, which is now the largest skyscraper in New York, and by far the most impressive. The building was constructed in 13 months ( without overtime ) during the depression which followed the stock market crash of 1929.
Enjoy the experience ! MHK 03.05.2006 ( Charlie's Birthday - Happy Birthday Charlie )
