Photo of the Day Friday 17th August 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell
Thought for the day…” Artificial intelligence is no match for natural stupidity.”
Did you read that one restaurant in Los Angeles is offering a 5% discount to diners who leave their mobile phone at the desk whilst they dine? The idea is for people to eat undisturbed, and to concentrate on their company and food instead of being interrupted by phone calls and text messages. A wonderful idea.
An unusual photo today, from the back streets of the Latvian capital, Riga. Riga has around 700 o00 people living in it, which is about 1/3 of Latvia’s population. Unemployment is a big problem in Latvia, resulting in many Latvians working abroad, where they can earn much more than the Latvian average of 700 euros a month. Latvia became independant from Russia in 1991.
Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
