Are you one?

Thought for the day…” For sleep, riches and health to be truly enjoyed, they must be interrupted.”

Are you one?   Are you one of the annoying people who walk down the pavements (sidewalk for the Americans) glued to their mobile phone??   I am so tired of these people who have no consideration for others walking towards them.   Now I am refusing to move out of their way.   Videos on Youtube show people walking into fountains and falling into rivers because they are fixated on their mobile phone.  They deserve it.   Almost as bad as those who text whilst driving.  Perhaps there is an app for people like these……..

Two photos from the Norwegian coastal town of Alesund.  This town was destroyed by fire in 1904, and was rebuilt in the Art Nouveau style.  This means that most of the buildings in the centre date from 1904 to 1907 and share the same style.  Around 45 000 people live here, with fishing, tourism and a small oil-support industry being the main occupations.  The first photo was taken at the top of the 488 steps which lead up from the town to the viewpoint.
