I am currently reading Crown and Country The Kings and Queens of England: A History, and just read the chapter about The Battle of Hastings. Quite a coincidence.

BTW, William the Conquerer was kind of a tool. 😜

Not sure what you mean by this @Shindig, is it supposed to be where it was fought?

I was going to react by saying "Nice," but I figured since I had to do some figuring what you meant (until I saw your post count was a reference), I'd list the latitude and longitude of Nice, France instead.  I thought it'd be funny :-)

Ah, I was a little slow there, should have gotten that. 👍

    • I've had to go the Dr. twice since April, the clinic area of a hospital.  My experience was the same, it seems extremely safe.
    • Yes. If you have a low viral load your body may not ramp up the machinery to make antibodies. Also we don’t have SARS or MERS vaccines. It’s not an easy vaccine.
    • I finally bought an Instant Pot and the air fryer lid. Anyone with recipe recommendations other than the obvious ones? Have already done Chicken and rice and beef stew for IP and fries/fish/wings/brussel sprouts for the AF.
    • Greyhound - par. I was interested in the cat and mouse bit between destroyers and subs, but that part was a bit muddled, not exactly sure what was going on during some moments. And why they maintained radio silence and only to break it soon after. I suspect if I played one of those online multiplayer war video games, I would have learned a lot more.
    • 18th hole of our tournament at Stony Creek.  I had played particularly well on the front but oil was leaking down the stretch.  #18 is a dogleg left par 4 and I hit through the dogleg into a fairway bunker.  When I surveyed my position, it was worse than I had hoped.  Over the years the tree line apparently grew out and from the bunker one was blocked from going directly at the green.  I could go short and left of the green, or try to fade an uphill 170 yard shot.  Option #2 brought a left greenside bunker into play if the shot did not fade. i decided short, left of the green made the most sense but I figured I would also try to hit a bit of a fade in hopes of running the shot close to the front of the green.  I did not want to go in the greenside bunker. Obviously, my shot was a success, otherwise I would be posting in the "Bonehead Shot of the Week" thread. I made a solid strike and managed to fade the ball.  It ended up a couple feet short of the green, straight up hill 20 feet to the hole.  My "putt" from off the green was solid for a tap in par.
