True or False?
A group of Geese on the ground is a gaggle - a group of Geese in the air is a skein.

I'm sure Heksie won't mind if I intercede on her behalf here ...


Fact or Myth ...

People may not use cell phones outside of a camp and gate area in Kruger except in cases of emergency?

Myth

The fact that there is generally zero signal outside these areas is neither here nor there :)

True or False:

The earliest sunrise and the latest sunset of the year always coincides with the summer solstice (longest day of the year); conversely, the latest sunrise and the earliest sunset of the year always occurs at the winter solstice (shortest day of the year)?

False - whilst earliest / latest sunrise / sunset and latest / earliest sunrise / sunset occur around the summer and winter solstice the exact date that they occur is a function of the latitude at which you are situated.

For example, in Perth, WA our earliest sunrise was 30/11/2013 and latest sunset is 6/1/2014 whilst Brisbane, QLD was 25/11/2013 and 6/1/2014 respectively. Johannesburg was 27/11 and 5/1/2014 respectively.
