Thought for the day….” Excuses are nails used to build the house of failure”.
” What we must decide is not how valuable we are, but how we are valuable”.
Curious story in the news about an ice-cream maker in Bristol, England who has developed jellyfish ice-cream that glows in the dark. Due to the chemicals in the ice-cream reacting, it glows when you eat it. It must be a very strange flavour!. The same creator (Charlie Francis) has previously made a gin & tonic ice-cream flavoured with quinine, which is normally used to treat malaria. And then there was the Croatian shop who made ‘Facebook’ ice-cream, a blue mixture that tasted of sweets and gum.
An autumn day in Oslo in today’s photo, and the new (and no doubt, expensive) apartments and museum at Aker Brygge. This was the site of a shipyard until 1998. The city of Oslo is growing at a very high rate, and currently has over 950 000 people. It is often rated as one of the most expensive cities in the world (along with Geneva and Tokyo), and was originally known as Christiana. Interestingly, in the Norwegian language (and also in Swedish) that there is no word for ‘please’.
