    My BBQ's on fire, the sun is shining, flowers are blooming and I've got something nice and cold in the fridge...

    Just to annoy you even more, here's something for the #Caturday   :-)

    Happy 4th of July!

    All who celebrate:

    One flag, one land, one heart, one hand, One Nation evermore! 
    ~ Oliver Wendell Holmes

    America is much more than a geographical fact. It is a political and moral fact — the first community in which men set out in principle to institutionalize freedom, responsible government, and human equality. 
    ~ Adlai Stevenson

    In the truest sense, freedom cannot be bestowed; it must be achieved. 
    ~ Franklin D. Roosevelt

    Those who expect to reap the blessings of freedom, must, like men, undergo the fatigue of supporting it.
    ~ Thomas Paine

    Happy Earth day my dear Circleverse!

    We can all chip in by: 

    - Recycling
    - Not wasting food or water (use the freezer)
    - Walking & bicycling more instead of driving.

    The true story behind this shark photo

    When this photograph was first published in Africa Geographic, BBC Wildlife and later in Paris Match and the Daily Mail (London) it resulted in a flurry of e-mails, phone calls and letters from around the world asking if the image was a fake. The image became the most talked about of shark photograph ever.

    The photograph is real, no photoshop, no digital manipulation, no nothing, in fact it was shot on slide film Fuji Provia 100 using a Nikon F5 Camera and 17-35 mm lens. For those conspiracy fans who still doubt its authenticity please read how I took the photograph...

    The origins of punctuation marks we use in everyday life:

    Question Mark ?
    Origin: When early scholars wrote in Latin, they would place the word questio – meaning “question” – at the end of a sentence to indicate a query. To conserve valuable space, writing it was soon shortened to qo, which caused another problem – readers might mistake it for the ending of a word. So they squashed the letters into a symbol: a lowercased q on top of an o. Over time the o shrank to a dot and the q to a squiggle, giving us our current question mark.

    Exclamation Point !
    Origin: Like the question mark, the exclamation point was invented by stacking letters. The mark comes from the Latin word io, meaning “exclamation of joy.” Written vertically, with the i above the o, it forms the exclamation point we use today.

    Equal Sign =
    Origin: Invented by Welsh mathematician Robert Recorde in 1557, with this rationale: “I will settle as I doe often in woorke use, a paire of paralleles, or Gmowe [i.e., twin] lines of one length, thus : , bicause noe 2 thynges, can be more equalle.” His equal signs were about five times as long as the current ones, and it took more than a century for his sign to be accepted over its rival: a strange curly symbol invented by Descartes.

    Ampersand &
    Origin: This symbol is stylized et, Latin for “and.” Although it was invented by the Roman scribe Marcus Tullius Tiro in the first century B.C., it didn’t get its strange name until centuries later. In the early 1800s, schoolchildren learned this symbol as the 27th letter of the alphabet: X, Y, Z, &. But the symbol had no name. So, they ended their ABCs with “and, per se, and” meaning “&, which means ‘and.’” This phrase was slurred into one garbled word that eventually caught on with everyone: ampersand.

    Octothorpe #
    Origin: The odd name for this ancient sign for numbering derives from thorpe, the Old Norse word for a village or farm that is often seen in British placenames. The symbol was originally used in mapmaking, representing a village surrounded by eight fields, so it was named the octothorp.

    This comes from a book named "Uncle John's Supremely Satisfying Bathroom Reader" http://www.neatorama.com/2007/07/09/the-origin-of-everyday-punctuation-marks/

    The elephant is trying to make a point:

    A teaser about my forthcoming trip to Malaysia:

    Kuala Lumpur - Terengganu - Langkawi

    Great tours and lots of photo ops.

    I've been to Malaysia many times, visited 15 of the 16 states / territories.
    Labuan is on my bucket list for diving...

    So you'll be seeing and hearing more about this fantastic country:
    Also via +martin shervington's Luxury Travel hangout where I'll be on 12th May:
    Just added more photos there!

    I wonder how many pics I'll take this time...  :-) Just taking the Canon G12 with me. Compact but good.

    This curved pedestrian bridge is 2000 feet above sea level at the top of Mount Mat Cincang in Malaysia. Tourists who want to walk across the 400-foot long structure must ride up to it in a cable car.

    Our late cat Pasha: (APR 2013)
    Pics I have missed taken by my husband...

    I was driving my 86-year-old mom today past the cemetery where she has a plot booked.
    She's been a bit under the weather and started talking about how nice it would be just to rest in the grave.

    I wanted to cheer her up and suggested that the ashes of Pasha (her favorite cat!) could be put in the grave with her and then he'd wake her up by meowing...

    She was immediately thrilled and uplifted! We spent the drive speculating how Pasha would wake her and interact, purring, bringing her ghostly moles...
    It made my mom laugh out loud and cheered her up!

    Even in death, my darling Pasha, you are a comfort and a joy.

    Thank you.  I miss you so much.

    PS: I wonder if half your ashes will do for my mom as I want the rest... So that I won't feel lonely.

    My computer has Spartans...

    "Customer: “Hi, my son says that I have Spartans on my laptop and I should bring it to you guys.”

    Tech Support: “…Ma’am? Spartans?”

    Customer: “Yes, I called my son at school and told him that screens keep popping up all the time, and he said that I have Spartans.”

    Me: “Oh! You mean Trojans! That’s a possibility; let me run this analyzer on your laptop real quick and we’ll see what’s going on.”

    Customer: “Young man, my son is in college and he says it has Spartans. You just stand here in a little uniform and make minimum wage. I think my son knows what he is talking about.”

    Tech Support: “You’re right ma’am. I was hoping to run a diagnostic and find out that it wasn’t Spartans, but just by looking at the login screen, I can tell that you probably have about 300 of the little guys running around.”

    Customer: “300?! Is that bad?”

    Tech Support: “It’s horrible. They cram themselves into a bottleneck and kill wave after wave of data, until there is a wall of dead programs blocking any more traffic through your computer.”

    Customer: “Oh, that just figures. I’m going to go buy a new computer.”

    Tech Support: “Ok, ma’am, I think that would be best.”

    Tonight there is the Colours of Malaysia parade in Merdeka Square and we will be watching it with the King of Malaysia from the VIP stands, so must dash to the shower and put on some lipstick. :-)

    See you, wifi permitting.

    This small rose was given to me for Mother's Day 2012:

    Yellow rose reminder

    It's not often that the commercially grown roses bought in supermarkets manage to survive the Finnish winter, but this one did. :-)

    I planted it last summer and now it's full of blooms and buds.

    Must've done something right or this rose has lots of spunk -
    I forgot to cover it last autumn...

    IN 2013 EUROPE


    The English are feeling the pinch in relation to recent events in Syria and have therefore raised their security level from "Miffed" to "Peeved." Soon, though, security levels may be raised yet again to "Irritated" or even "A Bit Cross." The English have not been "A Bit Cross" since the blitz in 1940 when tea supplies nearly ran out. Terrorists have been re-categorized from "Tiresome" to "A Bloody Nuisance." The last time the British issued a "Bloody Nuisance" warning level was in 1588, when threatened by the Spanish Armada.

    The Scots have raised their threat level from "Pissed Off" to "Let's get the Bastards." They don't have any other levels. This is the reason they have been used on the front line of the British army for the last 300 years.

    The French government announced yesterday that it has raised its terror alert level from "Run" to "Hide." The only two higher levels in France are "Collaborate" and "Surrender." The rise was precipitated by a recent fire that destroyed France 's white flag factory, effectively paralyzing the country's military capability.

    Italy has increased the alert level from "Shout Loudly and Excitedly" to "Elaborate Military Posturing." Two more levels remain: "Ineffective Combat Operations" and "Change Sides."

    The Germans have increased their alert state from "Disdainful Arrogance" to "Dress in Uniform and Sing Marching Songs." They also have two higher levels: "Invade a Neighbour" and "Lose."

    Belgians, on the other hand, are all on holiday as usual; the only threat they are worried about is NATO pulling out of Brussels ..

    The Spanish are all excited to see their new submarines ready to deploy. These beautifully designed subs have glass bottoms so the new Spanish navy can get a really good look at the old Spanish navy.

    Australia, meanwhile, has raised its security level from "No worries" to "She'll be right, Mate." Two more escalation levels remain: "Crikey! I think we'll need to cancel the barbie this weekend!" and "The barbie is cancelled." So far no situation has ever warranted use of the last final escalation level.

    And as a final thought - Greece is collapsing, the Iranians are getting aggressive, and Rome is in disarray. Welcome back to 430 BC.

    Off to lunch:

    I share a love for Thai food with my son: The hotter the better.

    There are a couple of nice Thai buffet restaurants close...  Which to choose?
    Hmm. Pity visiting both of them is a bit too much.

    What is your favorite Thai dish?
    Mine is Phad kapraw or fried stuff with chili, garlic and Thai basil.

    Happy Midsummer my dear Circleverse!

    We celebrate Juhannus in Finland tonight and tomorrow.
    Most of the people escape the cities and spend time along the lakes and seashores.

    Sauna, bonfires, drinking and having fun are essential. :-)

    Enjoy the white nights all of you who celebrate!

    Miss you summer...

    When I look back
    at those golden days
    filled with sunshine
    and blue skies

    The cotton candy clouds
    drifting lazily above
    the fire of tiger lilies
    will stay on my mind...
