How lucky is lucky ??

Thought for the day…”Talent does what it can; genius does what it must.”

Did you see the story in the news about a survivor of the recent air crash in Dubai?    Mohammed Khadar was returning to Dubai from India when the Emirates 777 aircraft crashed on landing.  All 300 passengers got off the aircraft, which later burnt out.  Mr. Khadar, who works in Dubai, purchased a lottery ticket in the duty free shop in airport, and won a USD 1 million cash prize.   Commenting on his win, he said that his escape from the crashed aircraft was a miracle, but that the money would make enemies.   Lucky !!

The photo today comes from the famous dye pots in Fez, Morocco.

Morocco – Fez dye pots – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…”  If people from Poland are called ‘Poles’ then why are people from Holland not called ‘Holes’ ?? ”

” A conscience is what hurts when all your other parts feel so good.”

The famous dye pots in Fez, Morocco for the photo today.  Luckily, you cannot smell this scene from the photo, as the place stinks.   The dye pots are used to tan the leather hides, using lime, urine, berries and water.  Morocco became independent from France in 1956, although French is still widely understood, in addition to Arabic.  The capital is Rabat (although Casablanca is the largest city) and the country has a population of about 32 million.  The dye pots in the photo are in the Medina, or old town, a mass of narrow passages and small shops.  Well worth a visit if you are in Morocco.   Remember that bargaining is the rule !   Mint tea is the national drink, and couscous the famous national dish.
