Apparently a Japanese billionaire is looking for eight people to join him on a trip round the moon, Mr Yusaku Maezawa who is an online fashion tycoon wants to fill the spaces he has purchased on the spaceship which is being developed by Space X.

Should the trip be successful they will be the first people to have completed the voyage since the Apollo mission in 1972 and Space X founder Elon Musk said he was highly confident that the Starship would be safe enough for human transport by 2023.

Not wishing to put a dampener on the proceedings but I feel obliged to mention that the Starship has crash landed in a massive fireball on two occasions on its return to Earth, so whilst they seem to have the going up part reasonably well controlled the coming down part seems to have a few flaws.

The timeline for applications for people to pre-register is by 14th March with an initial screening scheduled for 21st March and should they find eight people who are as mad as a bunch of frogs it will be all systems go and I wish them all the best of British luck!

About The Diary of a Country Bumpkin

I am a retired actor, although to be honest I only retired because I wasn't getting any work and the option of becoming an unemployed actor/waiter at my age was ludicrous, especially as my waiting skills are non-existent. Having said I’m retired, I don’t think there really is such a thing as a retired actor for I am still available for work, I just don’t have an agent or any connections with regards to obtaining any worthwhile work. I have over the years done student films when there is nothing else available, always low paid (if at all) the only incentive was always the promised copy of the finished film for your show reel which nine times out of ten always failed to materialise. I spent many years looking after my aged mother who had dementia, hence the lack of acting work but shortly after her death I was lucky enough to run into an ex-girlfriend of many years ago and our romance blossomed once again, resulting in us getting married in 2013. My move to the countryside inspired me to write The Diary of a Country Bumpkin which tells of my continuing dilemmas in dealing with the rigors of the countryside from the unexpectedly large number of pollens, fungal moulds and hay products waiting to attack the unsuspecting townie. I enjoy writing, see my play Dulce Et Decorum Est Pro Patria Mori on The Wireless Theatre Company, The Plays Wot I Wrote and The Battle of Barking Creek both available on and am very fond of classic cars so my ideal occupation would be acting in a film I had written set in the 1930s/40s, we live in hopes. I am delighted to say that since venturing to the countryside where space is not quite the premium it is in town, I have due to the availability of two double garages acquired more classic cars to form a small collection the pride of which are a 1947 Bentley Mk VI and a 2000 Bentley Arnage. My various blogs and websites are continually evolving and I’m sure that by following the appropriate links you will find something which will edify or amuse.
