Marty, how is the cake diet going?
Stan, I haven't tried it, and I was only repeating an anecdote on it above, not trying to imply it didn't have some kind of merit and weight loss potential, but I am assuming a high fat diet would be easy to rustle up? Although it would seem a tad inconvenient, the world is geared up to wrap your fat in carbs? Chips go with fish - what is batter - that has flour doesn't it - so do you cut through that and leave it? Sandwiches - you just eat the insides? Soup and a roll, roll goes in the bin, is the soup allowed? Pizza, you just eat the topping? Rice pudding, you use a straw to drink the sauce? I suppose I am not thinking about it the right way? Do you just go down the deli counter and order meat and cheese?
I have fond memories of watching the track and field events of the München Olympics in 1972, we'd got a colour TV; Kip Keino won the steeplechase after his stunning win (in black and white - ha ha) at the 1500m in Mexico four years earlier. Confusion in the marathon when a masquerader managed to enter the stadium prior to the actual leader. The USA getting mixed up about the timing of when the 100m heats were and some of their runners not turning up... At the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in 2014 Keino was introduced as medal bestower for an event I can't remember and I jumped out of my seat and whooped it up big time waving at him, I don't think he heard or saw me, I was half a stadium away, and, I don't think any of the people sat around me "got" what my huge celebration was about
Munich looks like a nice flat course F2D, I am putting it on my to-do list
Wishing some good news would come in from JAR but I suppose he'll be a bit immobile for a while. Hope your ham is better too Debra.
I took some time to think about staying in SA for a while next time out, safari isn't really my thing, but the stuff below is, thought you might like a read, I am definitely up for touring this region and looking at the artefacts of a 2 billion year old impact from an asteroid that was probably the size of Mt Everest travelling at 20 km per second when it hit; that was a planet changing moment!
So it was quite a bang and there is still a bit of a hole there today
There is very little of the original crater structure left, the outer rim and central peak have mostly eroded away during the last 2 billion years
Here is the impact area 2 billion years later
Here's a similar lookin' crater on the far side of the moon that isn't eroded away
I know of at least one other hole in the ground, possibly only 200,000 years old, which is within reach of this area too, so an impact crater tour is definitely on!
