Greetings Everyone,

I've been reading this forum and a lot of the threads here on and off for a few months now and i thought id take the time to register and become a member of your fine posting board.

I am 24 years old and come from England, my town's name is Milton Keynes and it is a very nice place, although the towns name is subjected to much riddicule and we are the butt of many jokes in the UK. im to young to know why but im told its to do with having to many roundabouts and being built in a "to american" style.

anyway i digress

im very interested in expanding my knowledge and hoping to aquire answers here.

my main areas of knowledge are UFO's and Mythology,

although im interested in 9/11 and 7/7 information as i do belive that there is a whole lot more to those two days than anyone will ever acknowledge (sp?)

i hope to talk to you all soon

thanks for having me

E Q

Welcome to ATS, always good to have another Brit on the board

Thank You

for the cool welcome


yeah it is usualy quiet on here this time of day lol but i think the whole Zaquari thing has woken up a few people for posting!

did you see Blair's press conf this mornin?

i really wish he'd give a straight answer, but if he ever does i think id die of shock.

I gave up taking notice of Blairs conferences a while ago. More chance of a straight answer from a goat


But yeah, a lot of "excitement" about al-Zaraqawi this morning, this board always "wakes up" when there's something "big" happening. It's probably fair to say a large majority found this website not long after 9/11, when something like that happens people want to discuss the darker points of it without being labelled sinister, and this is the best place to do it

yep milton keynes used to be the main place for raves in england(do not know about now). i can understand those jokes about the street layout of the place, because it is like something designed on simcity video game.

lol it is a bit like a game of sim city but without the fun or the random silly monsters

well it was a rave hole when we were mostly feilds and when The Sanctuary was in its peek

now unfortuantly you could rename the place Chav Town and no one would know.

the thing thats getting me abt al-zaraquai is how do they know its him?

i mean i thought no body knew exactly who he was ect and that people had different ideas on what he looked like ect and wether or not he even exsisted or was a composite characther

Go To
CNN.com...

Police escorted reporters to the house they said was destroyed in the U.S. air raid. But residents were skeptical. "Zarqawi. Zarqawi. Zarqawi. That's all we hear about. Zarqawi was not here. This home belonged to displaced people," said a village resident, holding up a teddy bear and a child's knapsack buried in the destruction.

He recalled hearing the sound of aircraft on Wednesday night, when the raid killed the most wanted man in Iraq. Hibhib, about 45 miles north of Baghdad, is typical of the rural Iraqi villages where U.S. troops hunt Sunni Arab insurgents and al Qaeda militants.

Located in Diyala, one of the country's most dangerous provinces, it is a tiny place with one road surrounded by date palm orchards and streams. Zarqawi is said to have moved to Diyala as part of a strategy of constantly moving around to evade U.S. and Iraqi forces. The province is a volatile mix of majority Shi'ites and Arab Sunnis and Kurds that has suffered some of the grisliest violence.

But Hibhib seems worlds away from the insurgent and sectarian bloodshed pushing Iraq toward civil war. That may be why residents seemed so surprised by news that the leader of the deceptively re-named "al Qaeda in Iraq" group who had a $25 million U.S. bounty on his head was in their midst.

DNA tests will confirm or deny this claim.

I worked on the USAF Project Blue Book in 1954. The 15th AISS - Air Intelligence Service Squadron, Detachment 10, McGhee-Tyson AFB, TN. Someone typo’d my AFSC - Air Force Speciality Code - and I spent 17 days there until new orders could be “cut” reassigning me to the correct job. Nobody just sits around in the USAF, so I was sent along on an interview. A couple living a mile out of a small NC town had called in to the local sheriff a UFO sighting of the 1st kind.

We stopped at the sheriff’s office. He reported the couple had a good reputation for honesty and trustworthiness. They owned a smallish farm - about 60 acres - with a modest 5 room house and inside plumbing. They grew tobacco, corn and a garden. The corn fed a cow for milk and butter and several pigs which were converted into bacon, ham and sausage at the appropriate time. The garden added variety. A half dozen apple trees, an equal number of pear trees, and you have the quintessential self-sustaining rural American family. The small farmer of Thomas Jefferson’s vision.

My senior (E6, me an E4) interviewed the man outside and I interviewed the woman inside. The couple had 2 grown children living in Charlotte. They were regular attendees at the local Baptist Church. They reported seeing 3 lights in a field around 9 PM, 2 hours after sundown. Sometimes the lights would move unpredictably but for more of the time than not, the lights were stationary. After 45 minutes the lights vanished. This was their first experience with strange lights and they called it in to the sheriff only because of the UFO stories on the radio. They agreed - separately - that if it had not been for the publicity, they would have ignored the lights.

We filled in the personal data, asked them to sign our writing of the interview, which they did, and we left. Total time, about 1 hour, 15 minutes. It was not our job to offer conclusions. Only to get the “facts.” That is my only experience with UFOs.

A good evening. I too hail from Milton Keynes, England. I was perhaps going to write an introduction, but then I saw this thread and thought 'I might as well post here.' So here I am.

Greetations.

The only Englishman I know of who reminds me of Keynes, is John Maynard Keynes, economist who is given credit for the economic policies of FDR’s New Deal, which are the foundation of 2006 America, like it or not.

I need help.

The other day I was watching an interview with Lady Mary Soames, the only surviving child of Sir Winston Churchill. In the course of describing her early childhood, she referred to herself as “a benjamin child.” Can you help me? What is a “benjamin” child in England?

Milton Keynes was a small Village in England that expanded to a 'Town'. It's far more of a city, if you ask me. Inhabitants of this place shouldn't remind anybody of John Maynard Keynes, really. I don't quite know what you are getting at there.

I have no knowledge of such an interview. I have no idea what a 'Benjamin Child' is either, so I can't help you, I'm afraid. Sorry.

Hey thank you all for the warm welcome once again!

to the person asking about milton keynes

a brief history can be found here

www.mkweb.co.uk...

also quoting from the milton keynes heratidge assioation websight at


www.mkheritage.co.uk...


"As an aid to you and the many other visitors who use this site looking for information on the history of Milton Keynes, here are some shortcuts which may get you to what you are looking for. The Association is looking at developing a major section on the history of Milton Keynes, in conjunction with interested parties.

Incidentally, to get the most-asked question out of the way : the name Milton Keynes has nothing to do with John Milton the poet or Maynard Keynes the economist. The city is named after one of the villages contained within its boundaries. However, when the city was being planned in the late 1960s, a Government minister of the time did comment that the proposed name had the benefit of "combining the poetic with the economic" !

Thanks for the link, EQ. Over here, sometimes the last child is called the "caboose" child. But I do not think "benjamin child" was meant like that. She may have referred to the story of the Berkshire wedding. Thank you.

Hey an update on this i asked my grandfather whos quite good with sayings

the only thing he could think of was that Benjamin was the smallest child of Jacob in the bible, so your lady could be refering herself as the baby or smallest child of her family.

I know someone from Milton Keynes. Actually I think that their town is within Milton Keynes and is called "Leighton Buzzard", is that familiar? Nice little area!
