Saw an interesting story in the news recently about KFC, who are going to send one of their ‘Zinger Burger’ chicken sandwiches into space, through a company called World View. The project is partly being finance by KFC. So it will be interesting to see the effects of zero gravity and no oxygen on the burger. Of course, KFC will be posting the details on their webpages live. Not that KFC are first with their idea, previously a pie company has sent one of its meat pies into space to space to study the effects of space on it. Interesting, that ‘launch’ took place from outside a pub in northern England !!
Today’s photo comes from 70 degrees north, in Finnmark province at the top of Norway. The reindeer are easy to spot at this time of year, especially as they come near the towns lower down to feed on spring grass. The photo was taken hand-held using the Fuji X-T20 and Fuji 100-400mm lens.
and another photo….a cross country train starts it trip from Penzance, Cornwall, England

I read an interesting story in the news about the ‘T-Rex Burger’ that Wendy’s in the USA was offering. They were offering the burger which contained 9 (!!) quarter pound beef patties (that makes over 1kg in the new money), 9 slices of cheese, tomatoes,, onion, lettuce and pickles, although it has now been removed after adverse publicity. A truck stop in the USA is also offering ‘The Heart Attack Burger’ whilst in Las Vegas (of course) the “Heart Attack Grill” served the infamouns “Triple Bypass Burger’ which contained 6000 calories. One man is reported as suffering a possible heart attack after eating one of these burgers in one sitting. If you are still hungry after that, then you can try Sonic’s 1200 calorie ‘Bacon Shake’, which contains 82 grams of sugar, and 79 grams of fat. Fancy Japanese instead? Then how about Burger King’s Kuro Burger, which comes with a bamboo charcoal bun and squid ink ketchup. But what actually goes into a fast food burger??
A photo from Finland today, and icebreakers laid up for the summer, with nothing to do until the winter ice returns.
