Boats and planes, Morocco and Madeira

Thought for the day…” Reach for the stars, even if you have to stand on a cactus”.

” Too many people miss the silver lining because they’re expecting gold.”

A photo of an Airbus A320 about to land at Funchal, Madeira for the photo today.  This aircraft was involved in an emergency descent on 8th July 2014 when on a flight from Lisbon to Amsterdam.  The aircraft declared an emergency and descended rapidly from FL380 (38 000 feet) down to 10 000 feet.   The passenger oxygen masks were deployed, but the aircraft landed without further problems.   This aircraft regularly does 5 flights during a single day, and is seen here at one of it’s regular airports, Funchal.     It was flying at around 130 knots (240 km/h) when the photo was taken.

Ebay email address – where is it?

Thought for the day…” Good judgement comes from experience.  Experience comes from bad judgement”.

“Success with negative attitude is called luck.  Success with positive attitude is called achievement”.

Have you ever tried to contact Customer ‘service’ at Ebay?   If so, then you will be as frustrated as I am.  Ebay makes it VERY difficult to contact them.    Yes, there is a ‘help & contact’ section, but this will merely lead you to suggested answers.   But try and find an email address for Ebay and you will get very annoyed.  They have made it deliberately difficult for you to contact them.    I merely wanted to contact Ebay to ask about a refund, but they do not publish an email address.  How crazy is that??   What reputable company does not want you to contact them???     Either way it has taught me a lesson.   If they are not prepared to publish and email address or put an online form for you to use, then they do not deserve trade.   It seems to be a trend with many companies now, making it very difficult or impossible for you to contact them by email.  They are happy enough to take your money, and make it very easy to pay, but when you want to contact them, that is a different matter.    Good customer service can actually be profitable for a company, whereas bad customer service actually drives customers away.     So why does Ebay make it so difficult to contact them by email???

One advantage of autumn is that it is a good time to go through the photo collection.  Here is one photo that I have converted to black & white….shadows from the railings on a bridge.

Photo of the Day Thursday 6th June 2013 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Thought for the day…” Dreams do not work unless you do. ”                   ”  There is no failure except giving up”.

” Success is not final, failure is not fatal, it is the courage to continue that counts”  (Winston Churchill).

I read on the BBC news that Germany has now lost its longest word, all 63 letters of it (Rindfleischetikettierungsueberwachungsaufgabenuebertragungsgesetz)   which meant ‘law delegating beef monitoring’.     Luckily, there is no need anymore for the word, so it has disappeared.   The longest word in the German dictionary will now be “Kraftfahrzeughaftpflichtversicherung’    which means automotive liability insurance.  Very useful if you are playing Scrabble.  The world record score in Scrabble is for the word CAZIQUES, which scored 392 points.   The highest total score in a game of Scrabble is 830 points.  In 1984, Peter Finan and Neil Smith played Scrabble for 153 hours.

Today’s photo shows boats in a harbour in Morocco.  If you look closely, then you will spot a single figure hopping from boat to boat.
