I've seen a list of "things an army should not attempt", one of them being to invade Russia in winter by land. Climate rather than Geography, I suppose. Another place hard to invade would be Antarctica, but who would want to do that?

Over at DAC (Douglas Adams Continuum) on Facebook, David Haddock writes:

"Cambridge Towel Day 2019. If you have been thinking of a trip to Cambridge in the near future then I am in the process of helping to organise a few events for Saturday May 25th, i.e. Towel Day.

The usual FREE Douglas Adams themed walk will be during the day. 12:30 from the station.
We will have a couple of talks with some of Douglas's friends, colleagues and experts at a pub called the Blue Moon between 16:00 and 18:00.
Then we will have the Stand Up for Towel Day comedy at the same pub between 20:00 and 22:30. Rachel Wheeley has previously done two of these in London, but this year has moved it to Cambridge.

Just wanted to give you guys some advance notice. More details including when tickets for the two pub events will be available when everything is sorted."

I should be able to attend. Unless both of our governments have collapsed, which is not totally unlikely. smiley - smiley

Amy Pawloski, aka 'paper lady'--'Mufflewhump'?!? click here to find out... (ACE)

Y'know... I wonder how far away those of us h2g2ers in the American south/southeast/east are from each other, and where the central point is...

But someone else needs to figure out logistics!

Even if it does appear that I've got the widest h2g2 net on FB.
