The Shortest Day


I took the above photo yesterday during the hour before sunset somewhere above the North Sea or Northern Germany.  As bluemeanie pointed out we flew last night from the shortest day to the shortest night, having swapped the Northern hemisphere for the Southern hemisphere.  This meant an early sunset, but also an early sunrise on the other end of the flight.

At the time this post appears (I am posting it in advance from Frankfurt, during a stopover) we will have landed in Johannesburg to change over to an internal South African flight, to Durban.  (The links are to Wikipedia, although I am not overly impressed with their entries on those two cities).

re: shortest day: Do you know of any way of getting goat blood out of a carpet?

I’ll ask my brother in law, he’s the expert on goat sacrifice in our family. Thinking about it, I am not sure of his expertise because to my knowledge he has only slaughtered two goats.

My brother in law keeps the goats’ skins and covers the carpet stains with them.
