Photo of the Day Thursday 27th December 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell

Thought for the day….” We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”

C60 and C90……There is a whole generation now who will not understand the significance of these, but for anyone over about 30 years old, then they will bring back memories of the early Walkmans, which ran on CASSETTE TAPE.  Some might even remember the C120 as well, a thin tape that was liable to jam up in the player.


And if you are over 30, then you will remember the constant battle of the Walkman to take enough batteries for it to last a long trip. But all is replaced now by the mp3 player……Nostalgia is a thing of the past.

Life is short,

Break the rules,

Forgive quickly,

Kiss slowly,

Love truly

Laugh uncontrollably

And never reget anything that made you smile.

And on the subject of nostalgia, a fine photo of a classic sailing boat, seen here at Molle, in Skane, Southern Sweden.

Thought for the day…”  If you see someone doing a crossword today, lean over and tell them that 7 Up is Lemonade”

Another photo from southern Sweden again today, and from Skane.   Sweden was also the home of ABBA, who sold over 370 million records/cds, making them one of the best selling music groups of all time.  Interestingly, one of the members of ABBA (Annifrid) was actually born in Norway.   Apparently, they also considered Ali Baba’, ‘FABB’ and ‘Baba’ as names for the group before deciding on ABBA.

Happy not to be working at the Quality Spa Resort Hotel, Norefjell.

Photo of the Day Monday 20th August 2012 – Not the Quality Spa Resort Hotel in Norefjell.

Thought for the day….” Blessed are the young, for they will inherit the national debt.”

Again another photo that proves that you do not need an expensive camera to get good photos, nor a tonne of equipment.   Taken yesterday whilst out cycling, it is one of those quick snapshots that works so well.  It was taken in Skane, the province in the far south of Sweden.  This area once belonged to Denmark, and although it is now Swedish, it is linked to Denmark (which is not far away) since the year 2000 by the Oresund bridge.  Sweden has a population of about 9.2 million people, of which about 85% live in cities.  Sadly, the weather is not always as shown in today’s photo !!
