Yes, the 1 and the 7a la Blavatsky, 1/7 of a second to travel the Earth. Google Earth "flys" us there in no time at all lol! I love Google Earth! 

BTW, I in inspecting a E-mail I didn't trust by way of the option "View Source" which allows viewing the complete contents and routing noticed that in this particular contents there were very weird strange sentences and partial sentences in two separate sections. so being the curious sort I of course decided to Google each line for itself! Anbd, was most amazed to fine that each sentence was a small extract from a literary published book or some proper name. Idid both section and ended with a lisiting the included "The Purple Pimpernal " by Baroness Orczy and "The annals of the Jamaican Plain" and lots more ! I haven't clue why this type on content is included in the details of an E-mail and need to dig deeper.
