This is secret baby-boomers business!

For the eyes of Baby Boomers only! In particular, neither my mother (who reads my blog) nor my daughter (who reads my blog) is allowed to see this. But if you are sixty or nearly sixty, you are allowed to follow the link below.

So, to find out what baby boomers are up to these days, enjoy

And now, courtesy of Google Maps which I am trialling as of today, here is where I am training at 1:30pm: [edit: embeding this crashes "Compose" mode so I have to stay in "edit html" mode!] I hope this works!

  2. Just don't call me spry!

    Marty should have been there too. A shame about the AA selection policy.

    I'm not sure about that being Christine - Emi did run around 68 (as did Christine). The correct results are there somewhere, I'm sure.
