On offer in your local supermarket

Thought for the day…” Failure is just success postponed”.

“If you want to make your dreams come true, then the first thing that you must do is to wake up”.

The local supermarket has a noticeboard which is usually full of for sale items.    But not always.    An advert seen recently amongst the items for sale….

It is the bit about being used to living without hot water that worries me the most.  Would you offer a home to people who were not used to hot water and who did not want to pay rent?    Judging by their spelling, they are also not used to using a dictionary either.

Today’s photo comes from Otago, New Zealand, and is of the view from the Lindis Pass.   The main road from Queenstown north towards Christchurch climbs up to 971m at this point, passing through an area famous for the special grass called tussock grass.  From here, the road is heading down towards Omarama and the Lindis Valley.   Despite being summer, the road was remarkably quiet when the photo was taken.   Taken with the Fuji X-E1.

New looking old, historic New Zealand

Thought for the day…” It isn’t premarital sex if you have no intention of getting married.”   (George Burns)

“Dreams are not what you see in your sleep.  Dreams are the things that do not let you sleep”.

Nice photo of the historic Cardrona Hotel, Otago, New Zealand for the photo today.    Cardrona lies about 25km from the town of Wanaka, on the mountain road to Queenstown.    Cardrona was originally a gold rush town which grey up in the 1860s.   The historic hotel in the photo was used in advertisements by the Speights brewery in New Zealand.   Nowadays it is the nearby Cardrona ski area which attracts tourists, although now that the road to Queenstown is sealed all the way, then the route through Cardrona is much busier.  Occasionally you still see people panning for gold in the nearby river.   The photo was taken in colour, then selectively changed to black and white.
