Surprised they have a men’s and women’s XC team in 2022. Must be stuck in the previous century…

The link to the two times in Japan contains another link to the Myriad Year Clock. It's an amazing piece of work.

Surprised that there is a men's and a women's cross-country team? I hope you are joking; otherwise you do not know the physical differences between men and women.

About the giant pumpkins: one day, my son and I were driving back from Washington to British Columbia. As we pulled up to the Customs/Immigration person, a pickup truck pulled up a lane or two away. The truck's bed was full with one pumpkin. Our customs/immigration guy walked over to check out the pumpkin--while holding our passport cards. Fortunately, we did not have to wait too long--we had an easy time getting in to Canada and found out the guy in the truck was returning from a pumpkin contest.
