Thought for the day…”Laughter is the sun that drives winter from the human face.”
“Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it.”
Are you one of those people who walk down the street with their head permanently fixed on their mobile phone?? I have given up moving out of the way for these people who walk with no regard for anybody else who is walking towards them. Numerous videos on Youtube of people who have walked into fountains and off piers whilst they used their mobile phone. Even worse are those people who you see cycling and driving whilst texting at the same time. Asking for trouble. The trend seems to be getting worse in cafes and restaurants too, where the mobile phone is THE centre of attention. Full marks to the cafes and restaurants who are now trying to restrict the use of mobile phones. One bar in Pembroke, New Zealand has a sign up saying “we do not have internet, TALK to each other “. Let us hope that more cafes and bars follow suit.
And the photo today is from Sydney, Australia, where there used to be an ex-Russian MiG 15 fighter that you could go flying in. Not much space in the cockpit !! Despite being an early jet fighter, it could fly at over 1000 km/h and it could fly up to 2500km. It could also climb to over 50 000 feet/15500m.
and another photo from the archives….sailing boats line up to start a race…..

RESPECT, CONSIDERATION & FAIRNESS.
Thought for the day…” Some days there will not be a song in hour heart. Sing anyway”.
“Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss then you will end up among the stars”.
I have no sympathy or patience for the increasing numbers of people who are walking along pavements with their head down, concentrating on a mobile telephone, and oblivious to the outside world. Now I refuse to move out of their way. TMCnet.com is reporting that a poll of British doctors has shown that 37% of UK smartphone users have stumbled in the last 2 years. The study also reported that 40% of Greek smartphone users damaged their phones in stumbling accidents over the last 2 years. And sites such as youtube have videos showing mobile phone users walking off piers in the sea or into canals or fountains whilst texting. So why do people do it?? What is so important that it needs a text to be sent whilst walking??? Moan for the day.
A sunny day in the Croatian city of Dubrovnik for the photo today and a shot of the Costa Victoria cruise ship. The ship carries up to 1928 passengers and a crew of 766, whilst about 42 000 people live in the city of Dubrovnik.
