    Hi All

    For anyone in, around or able to get to Liverpool today, tomorrow, Saturday or Sunday - I spotted this on the net and all I can say is "WOW" - this is something you won't want to miss.

    Apparently, May 2006, Londoners awoke to a spectacular event where a Time Capsule had landed on one of Londons busy streets... "well it wasn't there at 11:00 last night" one confused onlooker said to the person she was talking to on her phone. Take a look at the BBC news footage of the event... quite remarkable:


    Well, right now there's an even more spectacular event unfolding in Liverpool where a giant 50' spider has situated itself on the side of a building. Experiments are starting today to see what it is...

    Here's the event schedule...

    Wasn't the whole point of the space capsule that no-one expected it or knew what it was? If so, for the organisers to publish a schedule for this latest stunt seems a little strange!
