Only Friday the 13th that fall in October count!
The superstition has to with the dissolution of the Knight’s Templar.
And that happened on Friday, October 13, 1307.
This is July, NOT October, so Friday the 13th does NOT COUNT.
Repeat, does NOT count.
On average we get a Friday the 13th every 212 days.
The next Friday the 13th in October will be in 2023.

Two Very Different GPS tracks for what is the SAME swim everyday!
** ** ** ** ** **
We have been at this lake for the last 11-years and my swim never varies. I start as close to head-on with the swim platform — when the water is waist deep. I then swim to the platform and back again — until I can’t swim any further because the water is too shallow. So, the top GPS track is accurate. I swim longer on the return leg — and it is possible, mainly due to wind, that my return leg is slightly ‘off course’ though I try to swim in a straight line using a marker on the beach for reference.
I have not as yet measured the distance, but I am fairly sure that the distance to/from the swim platform is more than 34 yards — per one of the readings. That would ~17 yards (51′) one-way. That would be the length of 2.5 twenty-foot boats. I know the swim is further than that.
Part of this has to be GPS accuracy. The distance here might be TOO SHORT for GPS to get a good handle. With Open Water Swimming the Fenix 5 uses GPS, the accelerometer and the gyroscope to estimate distance and movement. I noticed the other day that the distance jumped significantly after I had finished my swim and stood up.
I am not impressed.
Why Is The U.K. Giving PREFERENTIAL Treatment To Donald Trump By Flying A Giant Balloon In His Honor?
This is unprecedented!
We, the Brits, have never bestowed such an honor on any prior U.S. President. For that matter, to any Head of State.
Why just for Donald Trump?
I am NOT happy.
This is WRONG. Very wrong.
Trump, at best, should be treated like all other U.S. Presidents before him.
