Following on from the stories about the shortage of toilet paper in Venezuela, of course, somebody has now developed a mobile phone app to show the location of toilet paper supplies. The free app lets Venezuelans know where toilet paper, cooking oil, flour and other other supplies that are in short supply can be found. The app uses Google maps to show the locations. It is said that the most popular use of this app is to locate toilet paper. In another mobile phone story in the news, the RSPB (Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (Britain), has criticized mobile phone apps that imitate birdsong, as these can be harmful to birds. People have also been using some mobile phone apps which imitate birdsong to entice birds out so that they can be photographed.
A photo from the archives today, although it still looks fresh. Nice shot of a street sweetcorn seller in Swaziland, Africa.

Did you know that humans shed about 600,000 particles of skin every hour? And did you know that adults have fewer bones than babies do? A baby starts life with about 350 bones, but some of these will join together, so in time, the number reduces to 206 that adults have. And did you know that you get a new lining to your stomach every 3 or 4 days? If you did not then the strong acid would destroy your stomach. Every square inch of skin on the human body has about 32 million bacteria on it, so always wash your hands!!!! And the human heart pumps about 2000 gallons of blood every day. Nerve impulses travel to the brain at around 275 km/h. In the average lifetime, a person will walk the equivalent of 5 times around the Equator. And the human body is 80% water.
School boy on a bus is the photo today. Still sorting out thousands of photos from over the years, the delete button is a wonderful tool.

Customer service is important, and good customer service encourages people to return. Sadly, the people working at KLM/Air France do not know what good customer service is. I am still waiting on replies from them, and it appears that their customer ‘service’ section just ignores email after email. It does not surprise me that the KLM/Air France group is not making a profit, as with bad customer ‘service’ like this, then the sooner that they go out of business, the better. Until they reply, I will not be flying with them again, their loss not mine.
A nice happy photo today, of a man in Swaziland. Surprisingly good teeth too, and judging by the look on his face, not a worry in the world. Swaziland is the smallest country in Africa (population of about 1 million people), and is still a kingdom. It has the highest infection rate of AIDS in the world, with well over 30% of people infected. The average age expectancy is around 27 years,
