Chris parked his yacht in the front of his house. It didn't fit in the garage.

I assume she was scared out of her mind. I mean if you had a naked guy dive bomb into a car with that kind of force, and then covered in blood-again on top of your windshield, you might panic a little too. She did panic a lot though. I'm still waiting on an explanation to see what the fuk was up with this dude.

Google is no longer allowing me to switch back to classical Google Maps! I'm generally an early adopter of new features, once they are on a reliable beta stage, but I don't really like the new interface because it is too slow, miss some features and it is hard to manage.

I don't like that service and the way it works. A post office was opened last month next to my house, so I put the point on the map to depict it. The amendment was refused by some amigo from Chile, because 'there were no proofs it had been opened'. Fortunately, he was soon defeated.

Today was a (partial) solar eclipse, mostly visible from northern Europe. Here's a picture of it:



Oh, sorry. I meant posting this picture:

The top picture is as close as I've seen it all day (I did the same thing as a joke on my dad ).
It has been foggy/clouded all day

It was a total bust in the Netherlands. I went up to the roof with some colleagues but the clouds were so dense you couldn't even see where the sun would be anyway. It did become slightly darker though.

I experienced the 1999 full eclipse in southern Germany. It's something you'll never forget.

I was at work today, but took 3 minutes break to go outside and see it. One colleague had some special glasses so we could look at the sun directly and I've seen it partially covered. For a few minutes it wasn't so bright outside as usual, even though no clouds were on the sky. You could feel that the light was less "powerfull".

I remember the eclipse back in 1999. I went on a field nearby my town where there were cows. When it went dark outside, all the cows sat down, trying to sleep.

Even though is cloudy right now here it wasn't so this morning, allowing the eclipse to be watched. I didn't do so because I had no suitable equipment, but my father got some special crystal so he and several others watched the eclipse through it. He still remembers the 1999 eclipse (I was a kid back then, and I don't remember that), even though it wasn't full here it was dark enough to get colder. OTOH I remember the October 2005 eclipse, an anullar one which crossed Spain (not my hometown, though). Anyway I can't wait to the full eclipse of 2026, which will be seen from my hometown as such!

It was a full one. But it only was visible from the Faroe and Svalbard islands.

Several thousands of people travelled to Faroe Islands because there was a total eclipse to see. Actually, there would have been, if the sky hadn't been covered with clouds. So I, staying at home, have seen more of the eclipse just watching it from our living room than those people who paid a lot of money for travelling to Faroe.
