Friday's Peninsula Breakfast Briefing
By Derek Davis
2nd Dec 2022 | Local News
Friday's fun fact of the day:
There’s enough gold inside Earth to coat the planet Turns out, there’s quite a bit of gold on—or, really, in—our planet: 99 percent of the precious metal can be found in the Earth’s core, enough to coat the entire surface of the Earth in 1.5 feet of gold.
A cold start with any mist or fog slowly clearing. Sunny spells developing from the east by the afternoon, with a risk of coastal showers. Feeling cold. Maximum Temperature 8C.
Joke of the day:
What do you call a calm piece of gold?
