Photo of the Day Saturday 25th May 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day…” Life is the most difficult exam. Many people fail because they copy others, not realising that everyone has a different question paper”. ” Happiness is the ultimate DIY project.”
I picked up a wonderful story in the news about the toilet paper shortage in Venezuela. Apparently, the Venezuelan government is planning to import 39 million rolls to help with the serious shortage in Venezuela. Reports say that people have been queuing to buy toilet paper, and in some places, people have had their hands ink stamped to prevent them buying more than their quota. That got me to have a look at the Toilet Paper Encyclopedia (yes, there is one) where I discovered that in 1996 in the USA, that President Clinton imposed a 6 cent tax on each roll of toilet paper. The USA is the world’s largest producer of toilet paper. And did you know that toilegami is the art of folding toilet paper into elaborate shapes?
And for the photo today, a picture of a snowmobile jumping in the city centre, Helsinki, Finland.

Very happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell, Norway.
