Ducks winter evening debriefing at the reservoir in Baltimore few days ago.
It is fact! 100% true! Good friends of ours have very recently enjoyed a dive in a recreational submarine in the Red Sea in Hurghada, Egypt. They clearly had a fabulous experience. Here are a three pictures they took.
What an adventure. The amazing experience will have created memories that will last a lifetime. Thanks to A & D for the photos.
PLEASE SCROLL DOWN – THANK YOU
I guarantee that if you don’t know about the Golden Ratio, when you learn about it you will think about it and remember it for the rest of your life. You will want to tell others about it.
Please follow steps 1-5 in order. It is best to look at the video (step 6) last.
1. Look at this sequence of numbers: 0, 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89, 144, 233, 377, 610, 987
2. Get out your calculator,
3. Notice that each number is the sum of the two preceding it. i.e. 0+1=1, 1+1=2, 2+1=3, 3+2=5 and so on….
4. Notice that if you divide any number by its preceding number you get 1.6*
e,g, 21/13 = 1.62*
e.g. 8/ 5 = 1.60*
e.g. 987/610 = 1.62*
5, look at this shell. Note the spirals.
6. . Now watch this excellent video. It will blow your mind. Watch to the end.

The giant african millipede, Archispirostreptus gigas, is called a “chongololo”or “chongi” in Zimbabwe. Picture taken in Port Elizabeth on 18 October 2022.
I photographed this groundhog near the forest at Lake George USA today. Prof. Google has lots of interesting facts about them. They hibernate in winter for about 150 days during which time their heartbeat drops from about about 80 to 5 per minute and their breathing from from about both 16 breaths per minute to 2. And, their body temperature drops from about 99F. to 37F. Amazing.
The Leopard and the Meerkat
One hot day in a remote area of the Kruger National Park in South Africa, a Leopard was enjoying a snooze under a huge marula tree. He had just dozed off when a passing Meerkat accidently brushed against him. The Leopard woke with a start, saw the Meercat and growled, “How dare you wake me! I am going to eat you!’
The terrified Meerkat pleaded, “Be kind! Don’t hurt me. One day I may repay your kindness.”
The Leopard laughed scornfully, “How can a tiny meerkat ever help a leopard? Be off with you!” And so, the Meerkat escaped.
A few days later the Leopard was caught in a net laid by hunters. Fearing the return of the hunters the Leopard screamed for help. Not far off the Meerkat heard the Leopard’s cries, found the Leopard and bit through the net and set the Leopard free.
Lesson: Never underestimate where you might find help in time of dire need.
