Thought for the day….”Good management consists of showing average people how to do the work of superior people”
“Goals are like underwear, you have to change them once in a while to feel better about yourself”.
Did you know that the North Pole and South Pole have only 1 sunrise and 1 sunset each year? And because the speed that the Earth rotates at is slowing down, the years are also getting shorter, around 400 million years ago a year was about 410 days, although the days were then only 21 hours long. Even on the Equator, the days are not exactly 12 hours long, due to changes in the size of the sun and atmospheric conditions, and daylight can up to 7 minutes longer. And due to the unusual orbit of the Earth, then the Northern Hemisphere has longer days than the Southern Hemisphere, with the sun being north of the Equator for 4 more days than in the Southern Hemisphere. People who build sundials will also know about the Equation of Time, which is used to make corrections for the uneven spinning of the Earth.
Another steam train photo today, but this time the engine driver. The photo was taken recently in Uppsala, Sweden during one of the weekend steam train specials, and is a timeless photo. All aboard please!!
