W8R2 and egg facts

Nearly managed to keep going this morning but the hill got me and I gave in to a 1 min walk. Can you forgive me? The QI elves were providing my podcast info again (episode 206) and the best fact today was that many recipes in the Philippines use egg yolks because historically their churches were made using egg whites in the building process. The Taj Mahal dome was also built using this ingredient!

That is great...interesting fact and a good run too.... :) Now.. are you going to repeat the run... or move on...πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‰

Interestingly the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct that carries the Llangollen canal used oxblood in its construction process!

Thanks for this:)

Well . . . . of course I will repeat it in that run 3 is the same but my real answer is that if that one goes ok then possibly not. Is that allowable? I’m beginning to feel guilt already though as I’ve always done what Sarah tells me (to the extent of over-running when the app pauses unexpectedly - twice) because as Sting has told me repeatedly β€œevery step you take Sarah’s watching you”.

Ok - you’ve persuaded me - I’ll repeat it (guilt is a terrible thing).

Like your fact too.
