2 pointsI have created an area here that will allow members to post and format topics before anybody else can see them. Once you make your post you may want to change the order of images or formatting of text, etc. This place will let you do that as only you and myself will be able to see the topic. Once you are happy with your post you can notify me and I will move it into the appropriate area. Or, if you are a subscriber you should be able to do this yourself (I have not tested this yet, but please let me know if it doesn't work).
1 pointI heard of a Durham University student (ranked 133rd in the world) telling his parents he was quite safe from Covid 19 because - 'It will only come to Durham if it can't get into Oxford or Cambridge !' The Medical correspondent of Private Eye has reported that pharmacies are running out of Paracetamol first, then Viagra, and recommends 'The Wheelbarrow' as the Approved Position in a Pandemic .. 🙃 cheers, Maurice
1 pointThis is a picture I treasure a lot. I'm at the top of Kala Patthar, where we can have the best view of Mount Everest and its surroundings. When we arrived at Gorak Shep, a village (?) at the base of Kala Patthar, totally exhausted from the all day hike, the guide invited us to climb it to see Mount Everest before sunset. We should rest at the lodge to head for base camp next day, but we decided to do the climb, in fact a heavy trek. I do not regret doing that, even because during the descent I had a diarrhea attack. The view was glorious. Mount Everest is the black pyramid next to the praying flags. Nuptse seems higher because of the perspective. Also the Base Camp and Khumbu Icefall can be seen at the middle left.
