Words of Wisdom – a poem for some thought

Thought for the day…”The whole point of getting things done is knowing what to leave undone.”

“It is the set of the sails, not the direction of the wind that determines which way we will go.”

Something different today…a poem.   Cannot remember where I got it from, not my work of course, but the words are very good –

When as a child I slept and wept,
Time crept.
When as a youth I laughed and talked,
Time walked-
When I became a fullgrown man ,
Time ran.
An older as I daily grew,
Time flew.
Soon shall I find in travelling on:
Time gone.

Winter is a great time to sort out the photos, so here is one from a time back, love the great Fuji colours in it.   A good photo needs good light, and the light was perfect for this photo, bright but not too strong.

and another photo from the archives….some market colour…

RESPECT, CONSIDERATION & FAIRNESS


Why I am glad that I am not 16 years old again

Thought for the day…”Always remember to take your vitamins.   Take Vitamin A for ACTION, take vitamin B for BELIEF, take vitamin C for CONFIDENCE, take vitamin D for DISCIPLINE, and take vitamin E for ENTHUSIASM”

Just had another birthday, and once again, I thought how glad that I am NOT 16 years old again.    Recently I went to a Countdown supermarket and was forced to use the self-service checkouts (normally I avoid them) as there were no staff working the ‘manned’ check-outs.    Whilst self-service check-outs might be profitable for the supermarket shareholders, the problem is that they are doing many people out of jobs.  The same thing has happened at airports (= less check-in staff working on the desks) and hotels which increasingly have automatic check in (= less receptionists).   Cruise ships are introducing robotic barmen capable of mixing and serving drinks (= less bar staff), petrol stations are increasingly becoming automatic (=less cashiers).  The list goes on, meaning less and less jobs.   All very good for shareholders, but not so good for the school leavers who are looking for jobs.    Often in supermarkets they try and steer me towards the self-service checkouts, but I try and choose a manned check-out.   One day, the trend might go the other way, when somebody realizes that the PERSONAL touch means so much.  Keep people employed !!

Great, punchy colours from the Fuji camera for the photo today….a colourful market scene……

Colourful healthy eating – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” If you cannot return a favour, then pass it on “.

”  Miracles start to happen when you give as much energy to your dreams as you do to your fears”.

Always good to fill the frame with lots of colour, and today’s photo is another shot from a local market….always a good place to find lots of local colours.  Nice contrast here between the dark skin and the colourful fruit.   Again this photo shows what you can do with an ordinary, cheap consumer camera.  Who needs 24 mega pixels and lenses costing thousands of dollars???

Moan of The Day – Sunday

Who is it that sticks those horrible small stickers on apples?   A pain to get off and a waste of time and effort.  Probably not good for health either.

Leave them off, save the time and effort !!

No longer working at the Quality Spa & Resort, Norefjell, and it feels good !!
