I'm not sure if I shall post another blog before Christmas as our house is now bursting at the seams! My elder daughter, son-in-law and two of my grandchildren are all here and eating and drinking us out of house and home! Two of them are now six foot four and can eat for the olympics, and we have had to resort to alcohol to de-stress! It was also my younger daughter's birthday, yesterday, and we are having ten for Christmas dinner. Great fun though and I wouldn't miss it for the world, but getting time to blog when there is so much going on is not so easy, but I do get up early every morning, always have done, and that may be my best time to write.
My long search for the solution to Bessler's wheel..............continues! I don't know how many times, as each year draws to a close, I've written that I'm sure that next year will be the year somone somewhere succeeds in solving this puzzle. So what about 2013? Will it be the year? I don't know and perhaps it is a good idea not to tempt fate by saying that I have a feeling that it will be the year when Bessler's wheel rolls again!
I'm disappointed that we didn't succeed during this 300th anniversary year but that would have been a mighty coincidence, wouldn't it - to actually solve the problem on the 300th anniversary? So next year will be the 301st since Bessler exhibited his wheel, but of course he probably built his proof of principle wheel the year before so maybe it will be 302 years since he actually discovered the secret. It simply doesn't matter whether we time the solution to a nice round number of years as long as we do make the discovery - and the sooner the better.
There are lots of discoveries to celebrate every year but mostly only the more famous ones get a centenary. Somehow I feel that when this one surfaces it will earn the right to have centenary celebration. So forget the 300th anniversary, next year will do just fine for the discovery of how Johann Bessler built his self-moving wheel. Good luck to us all and I wish everone a Merry Christmas or a Happy Holiday according to your personal preference.
