Jeritilley A picture is worth a thousand words..

When I’m Cleaning Windows – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Hate is like drinking poison and hoping that the other man dies”.

The photo today comes from the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana, and captures 5 window cleaners at work on an office building.   Slovenia became part of the European Union in 2004, and changed to the euro in 2007.     Around 280 000 people live in Ljubljana, although the whole country only has around 2 million residents.   The first car on the streets of Ljubljana, a Benz Comfortable, in 1898, became known as the ‘Red Bull’ because of the car’s high speed (up to 19 km/h !!).  Slovenia has around 28 000 vineyards, or 1 vineyard for every 70 residents.  According to the Guiness Book of World Records, the record for cleaning 3 standard office sized windows is held by Terry Burrows (UK), who cleaned them in 9.14 seconds during the National Window Cleaning competition in Blackpool, UK in 2009.

No sign of any records in this photo though…..
