Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

Photo of the Day Tuesday 14th August 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell

Thought for the day…”  Growing old is mandatory; growing up is optional. ‘

Did you see on the news that Poland is holding the European Dog Frisbee Championships in the city of Poznan?   Thrilling stuff, especially coming right after the Olympics !!

South Africa for the photo today and the Transvaal Coast.  Previously this was the area in which the Boers settled, to get away from the British further south.    The area boomed after 1885 when gold was found here until the Second Boer War which saw the Boers against the British.  The war was eventually ended after a blockade, after which the area became part of the British Empire.   Although Pretoria is considered to be the capital of South Africa, the country actually has three capitals: Pretoria (executive), Cape Town (legislative), and Bloemfontein (judicial).  It also has 11 official languages, and is the world’s third largest exporter of fruit.

Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel in Norefjell.
