Add crocs to that last point. They're a travesty

Da muss man unserer lieben Bundesregierung tatsächlich mal ernsthaft empfehlen sich an den USA zu orientieren. Ich hätte nicht gedacht, dass ich das wirklich mal sage (bzw. schreibe)... ;)

I suppose that's true for virtually all of the girls (and some of the guys) on here ;-)

I suppose not a lot of people even know the name of Mary Blair, but she was a unique contributor to some classic Disney animated movies and theme park attractions. Working mostly as a concept artist, she created fantastic colorful landscapes.

Here's a short (00:01:28) video tribute to her (and Walt) presented this year at the Annecy animation festival in France.

Ich bin kein großer Disney Fan, aber Mary Blair kenne selbst ich. :)

@dave11111 I was just starting out, thus the empty flipchart...it was about knowledge management.

No wonder the chart was empty.  (Sorry. Couldn't resist.)

I guess it's not really the same thing as a marathon, but I kind of pride myself on the fact that I did walk 42 kilometers (some 25 miles) this past week... 7 times around the Tempelhof Airfield - true, spread over three days and not quite at running speed, but still ;-) With our car in rehab (see previous post), I may have to walk...

Still good to go, though, right?

@baalseraph Gut geschätzt! BJ 1997 :-) Das ist ja gerade der Mist... keine Schuld am Unfall, aber vermutlich materieller Totalschaden, da die Reparaturkosten wahrscheinlich den Restwert des Fahrzeugs überschreiten.
baalseraph:
Schade drum, erst recht wenn man sich über Jahre an ein Auto gewöhnt hat. Ging mir mit meinem geliebten 15 Jahre alten Astra G Coupé ähnlich vor zwei Monaten. Der war nicht kaputt, aber die Kosten für Verschleissreparaturen und Unterhalt wurden so absurd hoch, dass ich einfach keine Lust mehr hatte. Also neues Auto gekauft, und ganz ehrlich: Mittlerweile bin ich einfach nur froh. :)

I'm not entirely sure about the process that goes into choosing a set as Set of the Day, but I'm confident that it's all based on a highly scientific and transparent algorithm that factors in any number of criteria...either that, or a set name is picked out of a hat.

Aww! Thank you so much! 😊😊😊💕 I appreciate it mister!

I'm somewhat proud of myself today - while I have walked the perimeter of the former Tempelhof airfield before, today I walked around 3 times, for almost exactly 18 kilometres/a little over 11 miles, at a (for me) fairly brisk speed.

Here's an aerial view of the site, now a park..the Nazi-era airport building, once up there with the Pentagon among the...

Wow that's a lot of walking. Good job

Not sure how scientifically valid this is, but here's a map of where today's countries approximately would have fit in the supercontinent Pangaea:

Can't miss wishing my fellow Gemini and one of my all-time fave SGs, the lovely and glamorous @ness a very happy birthday today, and much happiness now and forever! There's no such thing as a bad picture of her, but here's a recent favorite:
