I get that peaceful, easy morning feeling

Thought for the day…” Why is the man who invests all your money called a broker? ”

” The cure for insomnia is to get more sleep”.                  ” If a book about failure does not sell, then is it a success”.

Not the words from one of the hits of the Eagles music group but a peaceful scene from Norway for the photo today.  One of the early photos from the Fuji X-E1 camera here, taken whilst I was still trying the camera out.   Early morning in the hills of Norway, with some light mist starting to appear over the lake and the first signs of autumn on the trees.   Did you know that in the Swedish and Norwegian languages, that there is no word for ‘please’.   It always sounds very strange (and impolite)  to a non-Scandinavian to simply demand things (eg. give me a coffee.) instead of saying please.    Finnish is another language which does not have a direct word for please (although it does have some polite ways to ask for things, such as  Saisinko (=can I have).     And perhaps because of the long, dark winter and cold winter nights, Norway is number 2 in the world for coffee consumption per capita, around 142 litres (or about 9.5kg of coffee beans) a year for each Norwegian citizen.  Finland still tops the list.

Photo of the Day Monday 7th January 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….”  Those who say it cannot be done should not interrupt the people doing it ”

Apparently, a Cockroach can live up to two weeks without a head because its brain (or control center) is spread throughout its body.  And the Scottish band The Bay City Rollers earned their name after sticking a pin in a map of America, which landed on the Michigan city.

The photo today is of one of the world’s largest cargo planes, the Antonov An-124.    In May 1987, an An-124 set a world record, covering the distance of 20,151 km (10,881 nmi) without refuelling. The flight took 25 hours and 30 minutes; the takeoff weight was 455,000 kg.  It was seen here at Stockholm Arlanda airport.
