Thought for the day…” Happiness is not getting everything that you want. It is enjoying what you have”.
” The roots of education are bitter, but the fruit is sweet” (Aristotle).
Why is there a ‘fashion’ at the moment to make most running shoes in bright colours, or even white? How long do white running shoes stay white? Not long. But it seems that nearly all the current offerings in the shops are just in bright, light colours, which if you are running off road (or even on road) are not going to stay looking good for very long. Bring back darker running shoes!
Today’s photo comes from the waterfront area in central Copenhagen, Denmark. Nyhavn, which means ‘new harbour’ in Danish. The famous Danish author Hans Christian Andersen lived in Nyhavn for many years. Copenhagen claims to have the world’s longest shopping street (Stroget). With a population of around 1.2 million people the area has prosepered, especially after the opening in 2000 of the bridge joining it to nearby Malmo in Sweden. It is said that Walt Disney, after visitng the amusement park (Tivoli) in Copenhagen, was inspired to build his own version back in the USA. Denmark is also the home of LEGO, and it is estimated that over the last 60 years, that more than 320 billion bits of Lego have been sold. That works out at an average of 56 LEGO bits per person worldwide. LEGO is an abbreviation of the Danish words “leg got’, which means ‘play good’.
