According to the news yesterday, Australia has again been voted as the happiest place in the world to live in, scoring the highest marks in the ‘Better Life Index’.  This is based on income levels, health, safety and housing etc., and for the 3rd year in a row, Australia has won it.   No doubt that the people of Australia are happier than churchgoers in Venezuela.  Not only is the country suffering from a shortage of toilet paper, but apparently the Catholic church there is running out of wine as well.    The only wine maker in the country has been forced to cut back on production, so has stopped selling wine to the church.   Interesting that Australia, now the world’s happiest country, has a surplus of good wine (and presumably, no shortages of toilet paper!!).

Another photo from the archives and from Ethiopia, a portrait of a man sitting by the roadside.

Did you know that the world’s largest hotel, the Mecca Clock Tower Hotel in Saudi Arabia has 8000 rooms?  This beats the Izmailolvo Hotel in Moscow that has ‘just’ 7500 rooms.   And did you know that Saudi Arabia is the only country in the world that does not have any rivers?   Or that the shortest scheduled airline flight is from Westray to Papa Westray, in Scotland, UK, with a flight time of 2 minutes (or less, depending on the wind).  And did you know that Canada has the world’s longest coastline, 202 080 km.

And a photo of a priest in Ethiopia for the photo today.

Did you know that, with an average height of 1.8m above sea level, that the Maldives are the nation most likely to disappear when sea levels rise?   And did you know that the Falkland Islands have around 350 sheep for every person, or that Canada is the country in the world with the most lakes?   The least densely populated country in the world is Mongolia, whereas Hong Kong is the most densely populated.   And did you know that Saudi Arabia has no rivers?  Or that the country Monaco is actually smaller than Central Park in New York.    And in Papua New Guinea, an estimated 820 different languages are spoken.   And finally, did you know that the world’s fastest train ride is from Shanghai city to Pudong airport, where the magnetic train travels at 430km/h.

The photo today shows the Lutheran Cathedral in the centre of Helsinki, Finland, with some spring sunshine.

Photo of the Day Saturday 5th January 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” Life is like a multiple choice question, sometimes the choices confuse you, not the question itself.”

Before Google launched Gmail, “G-Mail” was the name of a free email service Garfield‘s website offered to fans of the lasagna-loving cat.  And did you know that human arms have 32 bones each, while human legs only have 30.  And also did you know that the name for “piggy banks” comes from the use of family money jars in the Middle Ages made from a type of clay called pygg.

A photo from the Latvian capital of Riga today, and the Russian Orthodox church in the city centre.  Not a large country, with a population of around 2.3 million people, although it has been fought over many times (including by the Germans, Swedes, Russians and in parts, by Lithuanians).  Suprisingly, it has a high suicide rate, (8th highest in the world).

Thought for the day….” Don’t cry over the past – It’s Gone

Don’t stress about the Future- It hasn’t happened yet

Live the present moment – Make it beautiful.”

Did you know that Alexandra Graham Bell, the inventor of the telephone, refused to have a one his office?   Apparently, after inventing it, he said that it disturbed is research work and prevented him from working properly.   He also never telephoned his wife or mother, as both of them were deaf.
