As soon as you start sharing your fitness data your privacy is shot.
While I am not that much of a private person, I prefer people not to know where I am — when I am out and about.
I don’t carry a ‘cell’ with me when I run. So, there is absolutely no way that my GPS data can get to the ‘cloud’ in real time.
But, I am going to checkout this ‘heatmap’. There can’t be too many fitness trackers out in the boonies where I live.

Over the last month or so I have posted photos, articles and a poem by Dick Byrd: lawyer, software entrepreneur, painter, poet, photographer, raconteur, Photoshop maestro, philosopher, writer, race car driver, mechanic & all-round-nice-guy.
Given his Photoshop wizardry, I always ask Dick as to how much Photoshop is there in a given picture — in this case, Full moon over ‘Mirror Lake’, that being where Dick currently lives, waterfront (though he has sold his place and moving ‘soon’).
This is what he said about this picture:
“Below is a photo of the moon setting over Mirror Lake in the evening from my kayak.
I photographed the shot of the moon and also the shot of the horizon over the trees while I was in my kayak. BUT, I used Photoshop to put the two photos together.
I’m concerned that I made the moon just a little too big. I wanted the “huge-Moon” affect you do get when the moon is close to the horizon, but I might have overdone it. What do you think?
This should set you up for this Wednesday’s rare Blue Moon Supermoon and partial eclipse.

So, I was very surprised the other day when I came across this “Day Zero” story. I Googled and read a couple of articles to make sure I got the drift.
Earlier in the month I had watched the 1st Test Match, SA vs. India, from Cape Town. The ground looked lush and everybody seemed happy and prosperous. No indication, whatsoever, that they were all staring at an abyss.
Yes, a 3-year drought. I guess some are hoping for non-stop rains in the next 2-months to avert this disaster.
4 million people.
This could be serious. Very serious.
You would have thought that SA, not a poor country by any means, could have done more. I guess water can be shipped in. Not sure how much water they have in the entire country. It is not a small country.
I will keep you posted.
