As you well know all time is measured from our Planet,s movement in space, Majid, The English were the first to set and measure Longitude and Latitude global meridians. the time meridian being the Latitude one that they zeroed on a line in Greenwich. With Greenwich mean time,with the global book of pre calculated angles and the Englishman Harrison,s chronometer, the Seas were opened to safe travel. Now all we need is a wee Sat, Nav, LOL cheers scally.

Hi Utpal I was up there a few years ago and it was a bit like standing at the Equator Line, stepping over to the opposite side of the World, not that it felt any different. LOl. I got a bit of a fright, when I checked that Guy at the Bench, then found he was 1/2 way up the hill at the back.:) best regards scally.

Scally, I would like to ask you a favor. Can you plan a visit again during my following holidays and stop the time for a couple of days? You 'll receive a few crats of Belgian beer, for your wife a few kilo's Belgian pralines (chocolat)and a lot of thanks. Cheers, Bart.

Bart Aerts on August 6, 2010

And now serious, great shot of an amazing place, Scally. Like 20. Cheers, Bart.

Harry Taggart on August 6, 2010

Bert did you never read the story of one man,s wish to God that he should stop time? He got his wish when God stopped the Earth,s rotation, but the only problem was that everything that was not fixed solid to the Earth,s crust, kept going and flew off into Space.LOL I almost was going to do as you said, but PRALINES! my wife has had more than enough PRALINES! Now if you had offered a bread and water diet Bart? cheers scally. thanks for the Like 20.
