Spurs win another game in the UEFA Cup, away to Nijmegen of Holland. O’Hara (England) scored the only goal and Spurs played pretty well. They now have a very good chance to proceed to the last 32, but there is still one more group match to play.
Guess who I saw today at Shizuoka station.
What was she doing in Shizuoka?
Here is a picture of Mahatma Gandhi before he became famous, taken in South Africa in 1895. He must be the only person to become poorer as he became more famous.
As mentioned in a comment about Charlie Chaplin, he wrote a famous song. Actually Chaplin wrote the music and the words were added later by another writer, who used Chaplin as his inspiration. Here are the words:
Smile though your heart is aching
Smile even though it’s breaking
When there are clouds in the sky, you’ll get by
If you smile through your fear and sorrow
Smile and maybe tomorrow
You’ll see the sun come shining through for you
Light up your face with gladness
Hide every trace of sadness
Although a tear may be ever so near
That’s the time you must keep on trying
This man was famous for his comedy movies in the early days of motion pictures (black and white pictures, and no speaking), but his comedy was mixed with sadness, which is a very powerful mixture.
About a year ago I saw a kingfisher at the Mariko River and I tried to take a photo but it flew away just as I clicked. So I posted this wonderful photo of a kingfisher from the net.
Today I saw another kingfisher (or was it the same one?) and I was again unsuccessful in taking a photo. So here is another photo of my favourite bird. BTW do you know that kingfishers cannot walk?
I dropped my mobile phone yesterday, but if I had this one I wouldn’t even be able to carry it.
This is the original mobile telephone, carried by its inventor, Martin Cooper.
