Running out of things to do in lockdown? Fear not.

Post by oneh2obabe »

Just don't try putting it together if you have cats ... they love hiding a few pieces.

Kodak has just launched the world’s largest puzzle, bound to offer hours (if not days) of entertainment.

The new puzzle has a staggering 51,300 pieces and takes up 16.47 sq metres, once completed.

What’s more, the pieces weigh 18.5kg in total.

The puzzle represents 27 different ‘wonders of the world’, including the the Statue of Liberty in New York, London’s Tower Bridge and Machu Picchu in Peru. Impressively, every ‘wonder of the world’ is an individual 1,900-piece puzzle on its own – coming in at 39in x 24in.

After each one is put together, they can then be placed to form the super-puzzle.

Every weekend for the past month we've been having cooking challenges, from coast to coast. Various family members, the ones who can cook, slug it out in the kitchens, on Snapchat and Messenger.
Sometimes tberes too much wine involved. :biggrin:

This weekend some are pushing for routine. :200:
Last weekend it was pasta. Homemade of course. We had ravioli.
The first challenge was foccacia bread.

And the winners? It's always the judges. I. E., the ones who don't cook.

I don't even have room for a 2000 piece, I can't imagine 51,300. :200: :200: :200:
