    I can echo Tony - I've also met my objective and established a clear use case for the GR III; I've explored and pinned down what I can do with this camera. I was prepared to sell it even a few days into the challenge, but it turned out to be a great "visual notebook", and nothing of this size...

    Final day of this year's SiJy challenge - thanks so much for participating and hanging in there; and to those who found it impossible to see this through, thanks for your contributions as well! And if you want to ponder "final days", I really, really recommend "Good Omens" (by Neil Gaiman and...

    Okay, a chemistry reference (Copper, Cu, is element number 29), but with a twist because, frankly, in spite of being truely over-the-top, this made me laugh (and it manages to stay informative, too): M.

    Today's outtake (just to explain the immediate follow-up): I call this one: Big thirst, quenched ... Yes, it's a wine flask cork. And no, you can't drink that alone (usually, something like this fits 5 to 15 litre flasks ...). Sign of a big, big feast ... I'll not comment any further ... M.

    28 is a so-called "perfect" number: Add up all of its proper divisors except itself (i.e. take its "aliquot sum" - nice little piece of Latin there), and you get the number itself: 1+2+4+7+14=28 A good reason for a perfect turnout, everyone :) (N.B. I could have used this earlier ... 28 is not...

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cantons_of_Switzerland A little trivia-worthy information about the country I call home - something to torment primary school children, but also quite a lot of useful knowledge: Switzerland is a federal state - and it's the Cantons where most of the political...

    If you research "22" on YouTube, you naturally bump into Taylor Swift; that's understandable, but not very inspiring ... Lily Allen is quite a bit more worth listening to ... (at least her last album, "No Shame", is; I didn't investigate further, it's not my usual listening material). But...

    Someone must have felt one heck of an urge ... The whole corner of the woods seems to be haunted by the stupid acts of self-styled juvenile neo-Nazis, and no, I'm not kidding; I'll spare you the tags I found. If I ever catch one at it, he's going to be very afraid indeed ... If he's lucky. M.
