Why do they do it?

Thought for the day…” Some days there will not be a song in hour heart.  Sing anyway”.

“Shoot for the moon.  Even if you miss then you will end up among the stars”.

I have no sympathy or patience for the increasing numbers of people who are walking along pavements with their head down, concentrating on a mobile telephone, and oblivious to the outside world.    Now I refuse to move out of their way.  TMCnet.com is reporting that a poll of British doctors has shown that 37% of UK smartphone users have stumbled in the last 2 years.  The study also reported that 40% of Greek smartphone users damaged their phones in stumbling accidents over the last 2 years.    And sites such as youtube have videos showing mobile phone users walking off piers in the sea or into canals or fountains whilst texting. So why do people do it??   What is so important that it needs a text to be sent whilst walking???  Moan for the day.

A sunny day in the Croatian city of Dubrovnik for the photo today and a shot of the Costa Victoria cruise ship.  The ship carries up to 1928 passengers and a crew of 766, whilst about 42 000 people live in the city of Dubrovnik.

Party Time – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the Day….” Do coffins have lifetime guarantees?”

” Isn’t Disney world just a people trap operated by a mouse?”

Another happy scene today, this time from the Cook Islands in the Pacific.  Every year the local churches arrange a ‘Gospel Day’ in which the churches compete against each other to put on the best show.    The islanders dance, put on small shows, sing and also drink a lot of alcohol.  One play that the churches have performed was based on the attacks against the twin towers in New York.   Gospel days start early, sometimes around 0300 and go on long into the night.  Lots of flowers, dancing, singing and fun.  The next gospel day will be in October 2014.
