Swimming through history…

leave a comment »

Have  a look  at the pictorial history of the Australian Olympics team’s swimming attire.   Focusing on the women’s side,  you can see how the gear changed from something to protect women’s modesty to high-tech designs crafted to reduce drag in the water.   When a hundredth of  a second can be the difference between gold and silver,  material and cut matter!

Hillary’s wall…

leave a comment »

Hillary decries walls,  especially the one Trump proposes,  but she thinks they are just fine when it comes to protecting her property.   Have a look at the imposing,  but very attractive  one around  her estate in Chappaqua, NY.
