Another goal reached
Monday, March 30, 2015
It was a really great weekend as I reached a long term goal and also got to do something I would never have dreamed of.
The first is with the help of SP. I have been tracking 10k steps a day plus since I joined SP way back in July 2012. I try to make curtain that I do at least 10K but my record it 33k which is hard to do.
Last year I add up all of my step (using Excel) and it came to a little over 10 million which nearly knocked me off of my feet (some 10 or 11 pairs of shoes / trainers). This got me thinking that it would be nice to set a goal of 15 million. Well this weekend I made that (plus wearing out another 5 or so pairs of trainers).
Now I have to set my goal at 20 million but who knows when I will get there and of course the cost of trainers.
The second thing I got to do was a little more interesting and has a story.
For the last 4 years our BBC2 TV channel has been putting on a show to get schools and youngsters involved into astronomy. My local society has been taking part putting on shows. Last Saturday was one of them. This took place in a school hall with me getting anyone who wanted to making moon creates. This involved dropping marbles into flour to show what happened.
Then it got interesting as our chairman came across with something very interesting a very small lump of rock. It turns out that it was a piece of the our Moon. It had a certificate to prove it. We all go to hold this in our hands.
Now I had trouble with the picture as they have been taken off of a video but I hope that you can see them.
Moon Rock, look how small it is
All in all a good weekend
