Photo of the Day Saturday 15th June 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
Thought for the day…” Before you judge others, make sure that you meet the requirements’.
” LIFE – it is about the journey, not the end”.
Another nice story in the news about a German bank clerk who fell asleep at work with his finger on the ‘2’ key whilst transferring money. 222,222,222 was almost transferred, although another employee spotted the mistake. He is very welcome to do this to my bank account. Reminds me of the story from New Zealand about a garage owner who ‘accidentally’ got an overdraft from Westpac Bank for NZD 10 million, or about USD 7 million. The bank had approved is overdraft request for NZD 100, ooo but input a figure 100 times this amount by mistake. In less than 1 month Hui and his partner withdrew almost NZD 7 million and transferred it to Hong Kong, and then promptly fled there from New Zealand. Hui Gao and his girlfriend were caught in 2011 but the bank only managed to recover about NZD 2.9 million. He received 4 years and 7 months in prison, although if he still has the NZD 3.8 million somewhere, then he will probably still be happy.
A typically crowded African boat in the photo today, and another photo from the archives. The boat here is seen in Malawi heading out to Likoma Island on Lake Malawi. At least 47 people died in June 2012 when a boat capsized on the lake, and judging by this photo, you can see why they capsize. The smaller boats are just as crowded and are just as overloaded.
