Thought for the day…” An optimist thinks that this is the best possible world, a pessimist fears that this is true.”
“Opportunity may knock once, but temptation bangs on your door for years”.
Did you know that the first product to get a bar code was Wrigley’s Chewing Gum? And that the liquid inside young coconuts can be used as a substitute for blood plasma? And that Coca-Cola was originally green? And that Icelanders consumer more Coca-cola per capita than any other nation. Celery requires more calories to eat and consume than it contains.

“Maybe you do not have to push yourself forward. Perhaps you just have to stop holding yourself back”.
And today’s photo is a close up of an Iguana, one of the lizard family. Common in Mexico, Central American, South America and some Pacific Islands. As well as having sharp claws, they are also excellent swimmers and have excellent vision. They live for up to 20 years, and can sprint at up to 30 km/h. They can grow to over 1,75m long.

Thought for the day….” Blessed are the young, for they will inherit the national debt.”
Rather nice story in the news at the moment about the monkey who turned up in Ikea in Toronto wearing a sheepskin coat and a nappy. Happy ending to this story, as the monkey is being sent to a sanctuary. Some great photos on the internet of this monkey, bet that it made people visiting IKEA look twice.
And on the subject of animals, a safari photo from Africa today.
Thought for the day….” Live now. Make now always the most precious time. Now will never come again.”
Another animal photo today…..this time a lioness. Apparently in the wild they live for up to 15 years, with males weighing up to 250 kg (females up to 180kg). Their territory can be up to 250 square kilometres. It is mainly the females that do the hunting, often at night.
Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.
