Another Autumn morning in Norway – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell
Thought for the day…..” Do not talk, unless you can improve the silence”.
“Every day is a gift. That is why they call it the present”.
Two nice stories in the news at the moment to bring a smile. Firstly, the man in the UK who has set up a premium rate telephone line at home so that when he gets cold-callers and advertisers ringing him, then it costs the companies a lot of money and he also gets 70% of the proceeds of the premium rate telephone call. Apparently he is now trying to keep advertisers on the phone as long as possible so that he gets even more money from them whilst they rack up a large bill on the premium rate number. Then there is the other story about Hasan Syed, again in the UK, who paid to have his twitter tweet promoted, advising people not to fly with British Airways because their customer service is horrendous. Normally it is advertisers who pay for promoted tweets, but Mr. Syed was able to use this system to give his complaint against BA huge publicity.
Autumn is well under way in Norway, and there have been some fantastic mornings recently. Out with the camera again, to yet another lake, and more reflections and lake views in the photo today. On the ground are many blueberries and wild mushrooms, and the some of the trees are now yellow and red (not the everygreens of course!). About the only sound when I took the photo were the fish (trout) jumping in the lake. The hunting season is underway now, mainly for elk, although also for deer, reindeer,mink and red foxes. Being Norway, you have to have a license to hunt, and new hunters must undergo a 30 hour training course and then take a test. Luckily, no test and license is needed to take photos like these. I am looking at getting a new camera now (perhaps my 5th Panasonic in a row) but seeing results like these, then there is still a lot of life in the current camera.
