THIS DAY IN WW2 (28.12.1940)
In the Balkans... The Greeks bring their offensive to an end for the moment in order to consolidate their gains and improve communications with the front.

TODAY IN MY LIFE
After three most enjoyable days of "letting myself go", this last day of recreation will see some sort of personal discipline reintroduced, although there will still be time aplenty to do my own thing, with wife making another visit to daughter today.

TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
"Raw nerves" proving robust under my new mindset - the next challenge is to optimise the opportunities that each moment presents.

TODAY'S THOUGHT
What makes something enjoyable truly fun is when there is some form of participation involved.

TODAY'S QUESTION FOR YOU
Why do you press the remote control harder when the batteries are flat?

TODAY'S ONELINER
Cry and you cry alone. Laugh alone and the world thinks you're nuts! : D

TRIVIA
Humans living at sea level will start to feel altitude sickness from about 1,500m above sea level. However, strong healthy people will eventually physically adapt to the conditions up to 5,950m. Higher than this and health permanently suffers up to 8,000m. Above 8,000m is known to mountaineers as the "Death Zone" - there is insufficient oxygen to sustain life and prolonged stays at this altitude without tanked oxygen will result in death. However, highly acclimatized people can survive around 12 hours in these conditions, allowing experienced mountaineers to climb Mount Everest (8,848m) without tanked oxygen.

Because climbers don't have the strength at that altitude to carry more than themselves, climbers in distress and the corpses of climbers who die in the death zone are simply abandoned, and are then preserved by the freezing conditions. By 2010, 216 people were known to have died climbing Everest and around 150 corpses litter the Death Zone.

TODAY'S AFFIRMATION
Now is the time to make a change!
