I've often thought that with "Man on the Moon" - in Australia we say Neil
Armstrong *walked on it on July 21 1969.  You lot who are up the other
end of the planet would reckon the 20th.  It always struck me as being
quite strange when the event was so huge.  Hopefully we won't get asked
that question at a quiz night when visiting each other's beautiful countries!
