??? I've been in it for 70 years, that I've been aware of.
Right now my brain is wrestling with the pattern recognition of "3 from 7 leaves 4".
That and my grass patches still populated by last year's leaves (more than 374)
Time for a cuppa and a lie-down methinks.

Good one, John, but then, but then ... shouldn't the "3" be sandwiched between the "7" and the "4"?

I am definitely heading off for a cup of lye and a tea-leaf down comforter.

Lutefisk? :sick: :barf:
Hans, you should be drummed out of the Garrison and Keilor-hauled.

I am no longer worried.
For the record, the image in my first post was NOT modified, although that would have been child's play in MSPaint.

This morning the same web page was opened up as part of my NEWS bookmark folder ("Open all in tabs"), and below you can see what I saw five minutes ago:-

My only explanation is that the browser froze right at the point of building that "dynamic speedometer" display, and it froze for about ten seconds; long enough for my mind to register "That's Odd!" and tap the prtScr key and choose the tab for Eileen's Lounge.
I have wiped my brow.
Cheers
Chris

Umm, that still leaves 40 rockets that launched but never landed. Where did they go? Will they fall on my head? Were they abducted by aliens? Do I need a new tinfoil hat?

Ken, Just keep your version of Windows fully updated, and then nothing untoward will happen in your life.
P.S. It has not escaped my notice that the product of 3*7*4 yields 84 which is doubly re-assuring (being twice 42) but suspiciously allied with 1984.
P.P.S You do not need a new tinfoil hat; no matter the state of your current hat, a new tinfoil hat will offer no improvement over the old.
P.P.P.S. And no, that is not a rais1n d'être.

Cheers
Chris

Really? I thought technology always moved on? Don't they issue updates to tin foil hats every month?

Ken

Perhaps they crashed? Or, achieved orbit? No doubt OMG (Our Mister Greaves) will unearth that information. :grin:
