      Another authoritative source, although probably difficult to pin down to the specific seconds...

        I did too in 1971 - with an awe of wonder and mystery as to how this was built, by whom and why - peaked all the more by wandering through the artifact and touching the stones.

        Going back many years later, looking at it from afar and going though the interpretative centre.

            A good news / bad news story:

            The world's first heart transplant of a genetically modified pig's heart into a human.

            This is great news - if it works, then it opens up a huge new supply of transplant organs and may completely do away with the waitlists and backlogs.

            Pigs, however, see this in a completely opposite way....

              Not to trivialize a good news story, it brought back memories of a great uncle of mine who owned a butcher shop, and when asked if he had pigs feet, would respond, yes, and they hurt like the dickens.

              Well....I was a kid and thought it was funny. As for the customers....

                Very excited to be taking my teaching Yoga certification (200 hour) here https://www.yoganisacentre.ca/ it starts in March and concludes in July. For the past two years Anisa has been one of my instructors and it is a natural fit.
                The Yoga teaching program at my YMCA is supposed to be starting late January or February and then I will be able to be a volunteer instructor there.
                Things will be busy, which is a nice change.
