Smile X Three – Not the Quality Spa Resort, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” It is a mistake to look too far ahead.  The chain of destiny can only be grasped one link at a time” (Winston Churchill).

“The road to success is always under construction”.

Did you see the alarming story in the news about scientists who have now managed to make an artificial worm that can wriggle?   Computer modelling of cells is being used to make an artificial creature that mimics a real worm.  The beginnings of Frankenstein perhaps???   Add artificial intelligence to artificial creatures and something very bad can be made.   Already in the USA, the FDA is approving certain genetically modified animals.  Back in 2007 there was the story about the South Korean scientists who had genetically modified some cats so that they glowed in the dark.   The most famous example though was ‘Dolly the Sheep’, the first mammal to have been successfully cloned.   Dolly the Sheep got her name after the famous singer Dolly Parton, as apparently cells from mamary glands were used to clone the sheep!!

Smile times three for the photo today.  Despite all the economic problems, run-down buildings, broken infrastructure and few facilities for children, these Albanian boys certainly look very happy.  Not a care in the world !  And certainly not cloned.

Stunning morning in Norway – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day……” Nothing comes easy, what comes easy means nothing and what comes hard means something”.

” There is no use running fast when you are on the wrong road”.

Was it enough with Dolly the Sheep?  No, because in the news now is a story about a Canadian dentist, Dr. Michael Zuk, who wants to clone the late John Lennon by using the DNA from one of his teeth.   Dr. Zuk obtained the tooth at an auction in 2011, and claims that bringing ‘back’ a deceased famous person would be the ultimate expression of science.

Something a little different for the photo today.  Not the actual photo (a stunning morning in Norway), but the technical details of the photo.   It is actually a combination of 24 individual photos that have been stitched together in a photo-editing program.    This results in one VERY large file, but also one that is excellent for printing and making very large, long enlargements.     Even after reducing the RAW files to JPEG, the final file size is still around 30mb, but for a view like the one in the photo, then it is wonderful to have it in such high quality.

Not that this photo, large as it is, will not compete with the World’s largest digital photo, which was published in February this year.    A photo of London, taken from the BT Tower, was made up of 48,640 individual photos, giving a total photo size of 320 GB.  Keep taking photos!!

Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell, and not missing the managers there at all.
