Olympians Coming out Both Ends

Was curious to know if there were Olympians who competed and won in both the Summer and Winter Olympics - Wikipedia came through … more importantly, Google actually made sense of my long question (I feel like it was only yesterday when you’d ask Google a question like a human and it would give you a response like a robot…)

IDEA: Kindle Eye Mask

Block out all other light except the book you’re reading. Advance the page by winking with your right eye, turn it back with your left eye (button controls also on side of face mask). Set a sleep timer on it - or just keep your eyes closed for 10 seconds and it automatically turns off.

If while travelling in Istanbul, you don’t sprain an ankle in a 300 year old ditch or nearly get your foot run over by a taxi … then you’re not walking enough.
