I decided to walk to Margate this afternoon for the exercise, all the way up to the council offices for a meeting on the web-casting project, set for its first pilot outing at next month's full council meeting.
During my walk, I devised a new measure of time and distance, call a 'PB'. This, as you may have gathered from the acronymn, is calculated in passing 'Pit Bulls' and so while it took five Pit Bulls to get as far as Cecil Square from Westgate, it was much quicker on the bus on the return leg, avoiding the rain and as you might expect, this only took two 'Pit Bulls'.
I'm interested to know if any other readers are able to measure their walks in the same way, in Ramsgate perhaps? It might also give us a broader idea of how many Pit Bull Terriers are out there and whether one could use them and this method to work out latitude as well!
Back in the real world I wonder if webcasting our local council meetings might knock X-Factor off the top slot. If you never saw The New Statesman series from the 1980's, then enjoy!
