smiley - rofl You win the prize for getting everything in the same Guide Entry but the kitchen sink.

Seriously, though - it's a beautiful summary of the Voyagers and what they're packing. smiley - smiley

Thank you mvpsmiley - blush

I have so many entries I want to write, I think linking 3 or 4 subjects together is the way to go - it makes them unique on the 'web and shortens the list quicker...smiley - rofl

I did think this was a Dmitri Entry from the title, as DG likes to get the keywords in early smiley - laugh

I applaud this Entry, as it tells an excellent tale of the Voyagers' journey that complements the Entry about the Voyagers themselves smiley - applausesmiley - biggrin

The only thing I wondered was whether you need a footnote on Nixon to link his name strongly with the Tricky Dicky of the title.

smiley - ok

Yes, young people have no idea of ancient history...smiley - winkeye

Did the British call Mr Nixon 'Tricky Dicky'? On the other side of the pond, it was 'Tricky Dick'. smiley - laugh

Ah! I see I subbed your Elvis/Tricky Entry A87804363 and didn't strengthen the link between the title and the text, but maybe the Richard/Dick link seemed strong enough at the time... Tricky Dicky is how I think of Nixon's nickname as a general rule, though, so that is rather amusing smiley - laugh

Thanks Sasha! I tried not to use the same info as in the Voyagers' main entry.smiley - rocket

>>Did the British call Mr Nixon 'Tricky Dicky'? On the other side of the pond, it was 'Tricky Dick'<<

Absolutely we did, "Dick" is a derogatory term (not just for someone called Richard) over this side of the pond.

I don't think a footnote is necessary as people will be attracted to the entry by the title and I thought it was funny, toosmiley - laugh

But they really, really didn't like Mr Nixon. smiley - winkeye
