StuartieGCompleted spur of the moment

I’m 99% sure that I found it tonight – it is very faint and difficult to see but pretty confident. Got a taxi fare out in the countryside towards the end of my nightshift so pulled over on way back for a look. No bright city lights and a clear sky made ideal conditions. Used about.com’s “how to find Andromeda” guide and also my Google sky map. I can definitely clearly see all the stars nearby in the correct part of the sky, problem is that Andromeda is so feint it is difficult to spot with the naked eye. Plus the way human night vision works is that its more sensitive in the area slightly away from where your focussing. So basically I focused on a slightly different part of the sky and could just make a faint light out in the position it was supposed to be in. Will be interesting to check with binoculars or a telescope too! Also its hard to believe that that tiny spot of light is a distant galaxy containing more stars than the world has grains of sand! Pretty amazing when you think about it! 6 months ago

StuartieGTime to give this another shot - Day 1

Looking at my stats, haven’t been for a run in 22 days (although that was a 16 miler to be fair!). Ran just a slightly different route today, 1.32 miles in 10:28 6 months ago


StuartieGInto The Wild

2007 film charting the true story of a young man who decides to give his entire $24,000 savings to charity and travel America (including time in the wilderness of Alaska) instead of going on to University. Enjoyed it most of the way through, I don’t want to spoil the film but in the end I started to think “Really? People look at this guy as a hero? Think he had some great ideas but he also seemed either naive or stupid. 6 months ago


StuartieGThat's a good one

I was thinking of a different quote. Checked and I think it was: “Brave men may not live forever, but cautious men do not live at all.” 6 months ago

Just read through your quotes so far, some pretty inspiring stuff there! I remember back when I first joined 43t I read a particularly good motivational quote in one of your entries – it really struck me at the time. I’m struggling to remember which one it is haha, but I’ll rack my brain try and get it will let you know! 6 months ago


StuartieGUntitled

I’mamazed at how qquickly I’m getting through this course – 270 words learnt in the last half week! Feel like its really starting to come together, although I’m a long way off being fluent. Another big help has been the discovery of the “coffee break Spanish” podcast series – 80 fifteen to twenty minute lessons – all good fun so far and great for nailing pronunciation! 6 months ago


StuartieGStarted this last night

There are 4 levels of Spanish to listen to / talk back to/with, covering 64 hours – all split into 30 minute lessons. I’m assuming level 1 just lasts 32 lessons. 6 months ago
