Photo of the Day Friday 28th December 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell

Thought for the day….” Most of the problems in life are because of two reasons, we act without thinking, or we keep thinking without acting”.

Did you know that the world’s longest place name is in New Zealand….Taumata­whakatangihanga­koauau­o­tamatea­turi­pukakapiki­maunga­horo­nuku­pokai­whenua­kitanatahu     Wonder how many points that would get if you could use it in Scrabble.   The word that has scored the most points in Scrabble is “BENZOXYCAMPHORS” which, when placed on the edge of the board (to use triple word scores) earned a whopping 1970 points.    For a single word, try caziques, which earns 392 points.

And for the photo today, a male baboon in Zambia.  Baboons can live up to 30 years, and live in large groups which are called “troops”.  Lions and hyenas are their main predators.
