Posted in: 200 years of 'Silent Night': Singers mark carol's birthday See in context

The carol also has a quite limited vocal range, so even I can almost make the top note. But you probably wouldn't want to hear me try.

Love this airport. If only it had more flights beyond Asia though. Today, for example there are only intercontinental flights to Frankfurt and Helsinki.

Don't tell Trump that the US is a 'kilo country' - he'll want to withdraw from the 'BIPM'.

They are still trying to contact Opportunity, hoping a gust of wind will have cleaned its solar panels enough to produce electricity to come back to life. But even if it doesn't, this rover will have lasted many years longer than its designers dared hope.
