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.

Moroccan woman – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…..” Knowledge talks, wisdom listens”

” When one door closes, another one opens, but we so often look so long and so regretfully at the closed door,  that we do not see the ones that will open for us’  (Alexandra Graham Bell).

More on stupid people.   Saw a story in news about a man in Wisconsin, USA who was arrested when he demanded a refund from a Walmart shop on a computer printer that he claimed he had bought instore.   A shop worker examined the printer, and noticed fake USD 100 bills which the man had been trying to print, still inside the printer.   And if you are bored, then you can pay a visit to the Museum of Old and New Art (MONA) in Hobart, Tasmania, Australia, which has an exhibition entitled ‘my beautiful chair’ where you can lie down next to a lethal injection chair and experience the countdown  (all 3 minutes and 15 seconds of it) until ‘death’ arrives.   The time corresponds to the time that the lethal injection drugs take to work.  Stupid.

Captured by the camera in a Moroccan market, this woman has the traditional dyed hands.   Henna (a plant) powder is mixed with water to produce a paste which is then painted onto the hands, often in intricate patterns.    Henna is also used as a hair conditioner and a hair dye.   It is believed by the local people that henna will protect against illness, as well as offering protection against the evil eye, and that it will bring joy.   Most major festivals in Morocco involve the use of Henna.  Around 32 million people live in Morocco, with the main languages being Arabic, Berber and French.

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.
