Might have to sprinkle some Bacon-bits and Bacon-Ranch dressing on my healthy chicken salad dinner.

Ugh, my mom eats that. She buys it, they eat it. One day she handed me a sammich. It was bacon spam. Fried Spam. After a couple of bites I inspect the suspicious sammich. "Seriously Mom? You gave me a Spam sammich?" Her answer was that I mentioned I was hungry. Her and my Aunt were quite pleased with themselves especially knowing I cannot tolerate MSG. They are crazy
Bacon flavoured spam indeed ... you were justified ringing Child Protective Services over that incident, Sherrvonne!

I believe you can revert to Win Whatever within a certain timeframe.

We had maps like that in Australia, too. First saw one in the 80s. Think that might have been an expression of something political.

Did the Mods spot the political aspect of that post?

Oh well, does not matter if the third guy's load disappears. Not exactly either a craft beer or a premium. The kind of stuff under-age teenagers use in excess for the emetic effect that comes with excess.

Reading that map is good practice for using GoogleMaps on the phone while walking about.

Last night I had to make a payment to the UK government. They gave me no choice - I had to pay in USD, they did not even give me a choice to use the kind of money they make - GBP! I only ever came across that before with fees charged by governments with minimally traded currencies.

Not unusual to have everything quoted in US$ in third world countries. But the UK government? That's a new one!

I have always liked that map projection, just because it gives such a different view...

You'll feel better once you've calc'd a few traverses.
Can't do that anymore Mark.
A few years after retirement I put my trusty HP 15C on eBay after deciding I would never use/need it again.
It had a sweet program for running a traverse using coordinates.
