JJ - Pity a high grade lert doesn't equate with a high grade runner!

Good morning

Welcome back Graham, glad you enjoyed it.

First mile was just running, second mile was r/w: 30sec walk,n 2min30sec run, third mile was r/w: 1min walk, 5min  run, last bit was just run and my fastest bit because it's downhill but I realise most of you would consider it slow.

Pity these forums don't implement tabs properly. For anyone interested the first mile was all walk, the second was all run and the third was r/w to the end. I've always said I can walk as fast as I run and as you can see, there's  less than minute difference.

BTW I notice that when I get to the bottom of the typing box and the first lines begin to scroll off the top the cursor keeps disappearing without warning and unexpected things happen. That's when I find I lose stuff unless I'm alert. If there are any other lerts out there they'll know what I mean, others will probably just be confused.

Colin - I've looked up the Millais painting "The Blind Girl" and he painted a double rainbow in it. She doesn't look like a beggar though.

Colin - Painting the rainbow is not difficult it's impossible. even the greats like Constable and Turner didn't manage to make it look right. Trouble is that paint, pastels, etc. are not transparent like the real thing. It's easy enough to do the colours in the right order but you can't achieve the delicate vibrancy and brightness of the real thing.

There aren't even words to describe it.

I don't know the Millais painting Columba mentioned but I understand perfectly what it says: how do you describe a rainbow to a blind person? Come to that how do you describe the look of anything to someone blind from birth. How do you explain 'seeing'?

Colin - On my Kindle and on my smartphone (Windows not Android) the apost..etc is with the numerals also I found the capslock kicks in when you hold or double click the Shift button. Sorry if I've only told you what you already know, there are too many people doing that.

JJ - If I'm going to keep the stats coming it means I've got to keep running, unless I just make 'em up.

Not too keen on just being a curiosity though. Anyways it's been one a week for a couple o' weeks and that may well continue by the look o' things just now.

I've often wanted to use that one

Colin - I believe there is always a second rainbow when the first is bright enough. It appears outside the first and its colours are in the reverse order, it is  generally paler than the first and is easier to see against a dark background such as black clouds. When a rainbow is strong and bright I always look for an outer one and over the years I have seen several.

Columba - Top of the class it is and you could have had totp as well from the position of your post. As you will have gathered I've already been to the foot of our stairs.

First run since a week ago; same route but nearly a minute quicker. Can't work out why I'm so interested in the time when I'm still at the bottom of the pack.
