The above two extracts from my “Comets” book tell you everything you need to know. SMILE.

NASA/ESA SOHO makes available digital images that amateurs can scan at their leisure to spot comets.

The 3,000th comet thus discovered was made in September 2015.

So just under 5-years to find another 1,000. That is 200 a year. NOT BAD.

Nature Does Freud! (Smile)

Growing up in Ceylon, half a century ago, I was familiar with a cute saying: “those that know, know“!

It was used by meat sellers when they were selling PORK to Muslims. They would not advertise the pork as pork since that would make it difficult for the Muslims to buy it openly.

So, they left the pork unlabelled & told people who asked: “those that know, know“.

Muslims knew it was pork & they could buy it without the word pork ever coming up or getting mentioned.

So ….

Those that know, know“.

I have always told you that I have an irrelevant & irreverent (British) sense of humor. SMILE.

I had NOT planned on doing this — i.e., the flowers — on a daily basis. Never did in the past. But, some of you seem to really like them. They, i.e., the flowers, have quite a little following. So, I am happy to PLEASE. Enjoy. Smile.

I Walked Close To A MILLION-Steps (964,878) In The Last 60-Days (16K/Day).

Yes, each to their own.

So, this is how I spent SOME of my COVID-19 2-months — walking more than I ever have.

BIG change is that I tried NOT to drop below 10K — even once.

Prior to that I was happy to drop below 10K one-day every 4-days or so. I tried to stop that. Keep 10K as a minimum.

So, you can now see what I will next be shooting for. 1 MILLION miles in 2-months. SMILE.

Well, I am HAPPY. Very happy. Yes, exercise keeps you happy.
