Giving is the best communication

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

Some advertisements are just too good not to share and the following YouTube clip is one of them; a 3 minute video that serves as a fantastic reminder of the power of being kind without expecting something in return.

Live and love unconditionally…I *love* it!

Hugh Macleod: “Your idea doesn’t have to be big. It just has to be yours alone. The more the idea is yours alone, the more freedom you have to do something really amazing. The more amazing, the more people will click with your idea. The more people click with your idea, the more it will change the world.”

Isn’t it ironic…

Besides a great song by Alanis Morissette, Ironic is also what some photographs, photos of situations that are a pure fail in themselves and by that hilarious.

Check ‘m out here, actually some are so ironic that it is hard to believe that they were completely unplanned. 🙂

Elizabeth Janeway: “I have a problem about being nearly sixty: I keep waking up in the morning and thinking I’m thirty-one.”

(for me that would be ‘just over 40, waking up thinking I’m 25!’ 🙂 )

From today I am the answer…

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

From today I am the answer to The Utimate Question of Life, the Universe, and Everything; the answer is calculated in exactly 7.5 million years by supercomputer Deep Thought and turns out to be my age as of today: 42!

The Ultimate Question is not known, though apparently we are all part of the calculation of it; a supercomputer called ‘Earth’ was designed to calculate the Ultimate Question in 10 million years and Life itself forms part of its operational matrix…

(from The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams, recommended! 🙂 )

 

So, from today you just ask me and I will be your answer! 🙂

Safety Instructions

Saturday, April 19th, 2014

I flew back to NL today and had a chance to enjoy the standard safety drill that the flight crew provides.
A pretty boring and routine experience…unfortunately not as entertaining as the one provided by the South West purser below…LoL 🙂

Benjamin Disraeli: “Never apologize for showing feeling. When you do so, you apologize for truth.”

Cutting wood

Friday, April 18th, 2014

Living in Norway, wood plays an important role; most houses (except those in the main cities) are made of wood, and fireplaces use wood to heat up the house during the cold winter months. Besides that, there are a shitload of trees in this country, making nature here an absolutely stunning experience! If I would have the time and the talent, I would chop down one of those trees and start wood carving…why? Well, why not? The result can be amaaaazing!!

I don’t want to spoil the surprise, so the picture below is just the start (‘the’ tree), just click this link for the full article and let yourself be surprised with the end result…WoW!

Viralnova.com: “One tree, four years of work and an indescribable amount of talent: that’s what it took to create this incredible masterpiece. A famous Chinese wood carver chopped down a single tree and tirelessly worked on it for over four years to make this piece. Your jaw will hit the floor when you see what he created.”
