Geocache Description:

These caches have been set to celebrate my 40th Birthday. One for every year of my life. The cache container is:
round orange tub

Global Positioning System time epoch begins at 00:00 UTC on Jan 6th
Winter Olympics Lake Placid, New York
Summer Olympics Moscow, Soviet Union

In music: lots more variety creeping into the charts with more singles reaching number one; again The Police are Stu's birthday number one with the best selling single of the year Don't Stand So Close to Me; unsurprisingly, John Lennon is the Christmas number one with (Just Like) Starting Over - he's knocked off the top spot for two weeks by St Winifred's school choir with There's No-one Quite Like Grandma before spending 6 more weeks at number one with Imagine and Woman.

Also in 1980: MS Athina B is beached at Brighton becoming a temporary tourist attraction; Radio Caroline host ship Mi Amigo sinks; John Lennon is murdered; Alton Towers development begins.
