Thought for the day….” We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”
C60 and C90……There is a whole generation now who will not understand the significance of these, but for anyone over about 30 years old, then they will bring back memories of the early Walkmans, which ran on CASSETTE TAPE. Some might even remember the C120 as well, a thin tape that was liable to jam up in the player.
And if you are over 30, then you will remember the constant battle of the Walkman to take enough batteries for it to last a long trip. But all is replaced now by the mp3 player……Nostalgia is a thing of the past.
Life is short,
Break the rules,
And never reget anything that made you smile.
And on the subject of nostalgia, a fine photo of a classic sailing boat, seen here at Molle, in Skane, Southern Sweden.

The Danish capital of Copenhagen is today’s photo, and a row of terraced houses not far from the city centre. About 1.2 million people live in the city. It was originally a walled city, with entry possible in only three places (Vesterport, Norreport and Osterport). The city has been under siege twice (once by the Swedes, and once by the English). Copenhagen is often recognized as one of the cities with the highest quality of life, and also the happiest people. It is said to have one of the highest numbers of restaurants and bars per capita in the world.

Thought for the day….” What is worse than being blind? Having sight but no vision.”
A night shot of the famous Nyhavn area of Copenhagen, Denmark today. Many of the buildings along the canal here are from the 17th and 18th centuries. The canal was originally built by Swedish prisoners of war. The Danish author Hans Christian Anderson lived here for a time. In former times, it was notorious for beer, sailors and prostitution, although now it is a popular place for tourists and locals to dine out. The main pedestrian street of Copenhagen is only a short walk away.

Thought for the day..” Ability is not a disability ”
Staying in Copenhagen, Denmark for the photo. Due to a noisy and poor city centre hotel, I was up early so watched the sunrise from my room on the 11th floor. Something good about being up at the crack of dawn, another day ahead…..
Thought for the day…” There are two ways to get enough. One is to continue to accumulate more and more. The other is to desire less”
Why can companies who make mistakes not admit that they have done wrong? I am still in a battle with GLS/DB Schenker over the delayed delivery of my cycle, but GLS/DB Schenker just refuse to accept that they have done wrong. I keep quoting their website to them, and that a delivery time of ’48-72 hours” does not mean 29 days, and that ‘door to door delivery’ does not mean that I have to collect it from their offices, but they continue to be stubborn. It will end up in a court, sad that it is necessary. Never be afraid to admit that you have made a mistake, but GLS/DB Schenker just try to avoid it. Lessons learnt, never using DB Schenker/GLS again.
In Scandinavia for the photo today, and to the Danish capital of Copenhagen. Every day at 1200 the guards are changed at the Royal Palace of Amalienborg, the winter home of the Danish royal family. The guards will be on duty for another 2 hours, until the next guards arrive. About 1.2 million people live in the city, and apparently, 36% of them commute to work by cycle.
