It's a sign of the times that these days you need directory enquiries to get the number for 118118...anyway,

So I'm in my new job now, down in Guildford and I'm staying at the YMCA...and the village people were right, (apart from the gay sex which so far has been a bitter disappointment) it is fun to stay there.

Hannah Jurado, Mission Controller

A Space Shuttle LaunchClick Image Hannah Jurado is the step-daughter of my great friend Randy Villines. Randy and I were pals in the US Air Force. He married Julieta in 1985 and Hannah must have been about eight or nine years old.

Well done, Hannah!!!
