I knew that some of our friends were not far from the Hemel Hempstead explosion in the UK.
I just had a mail from Dr. Anthony Stone, who taught Mathematics in our college during my time there in the 1960's.
He stays just two and a half miles from the explosion spot.
He assured mt that there was no damage at his residence.
Sadly, his wife, Bertha, has been admitted to hospital with a fractured pelvis. Two years ago she suffered a fractured hip.
In 2000, Tony came and stayed a week with Annikki and me when we were living in our penthouse in Torikatu in the centre of town.
Tony is very sprightly, both in mind and body, but poor Tony and Bertha have been having a lot of problems of late.
Do visit his Catend Study web site as it will show you his close and longtime links to India as well as he delving into the inner secrets of mathematics. As can be seen from his site, Tony had a fascinating way of teaching.
Have you ever thought when the 3rd Millenium began? No, it was not 2000!
Or do you know how to calculate the time of day from the shadow?
On his site you will find such fascinating pages as History | India | Links Other Sites | Mathematics | Theoretical Physics | Theology | Time | Transliteration Pages
Take a few minutes to visit the site and send a message to Tony. He will appreciate it.
