Numbers Game

This halloween marks 7 billion people on earth (and counting)

Seven Billion People

World Population Growing - but growth is slowing

I wonder what (if anything) will happen? Will it take 9 billion to swing major changes? 10? 20?

We'll see!

How will you remember?

I will this year by taking my GPIL who is a WWII vet to breakfast with his lovely war bride wife.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders Fields.

I think I can improve

Sep 16, 2007 - 5km 34:41.6
Oct 14, 2007 - 5km 34:02.7

What about in 2010? I don't know if I'll try but if I do I want to be sub 30. That would mean making sure I run the whole way! Not stopping here and there for a breather. Who knows?

Forest wins Gold!

And now a Gold!
