MM: John Denver - Country Roads

This is one of my favorite Country songs (since we had to sing it in our music and english course). It's from John Denver who died 1997 in a airplane accident. The song - Country Roads - is almost 30 years old but never looses his flair.

Enjoy it!

Here are the lyrics of the song Country Roads from John Denver:

Almost heaven West Virginia
Blue Ridge Mountains Shenandoah river
Life is old there older than the trees
Younger than the mountains blowin' like a breeze

Country roads take me home
To the place I belove
West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

All my memories gather round her
Miner's lady stranger to blue water
Dark and dusty painted on the sky
Misty taste of moonshine teardrops in my eyes

Country roads take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

I hear a voice in the morning hour as she calls me
The radio reminds me of my home far away
Drivin' down the road I get a feelin'
That I should have home yesterday yesterday

Country roads take me home

To the place I belong
West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

Country roads take me home
To the place I belove
West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

West Virginia mountain momma
Take me home country roads

Take me home country roads
Take me home country roads

A total of 800 metric tonnes of steel were used in the construction and the outer shell consists of 3000 square metres of glass.

London and its sights!

tThe Collegiate Church of St Peter at Westminster, which is almost always referred to by its original name of Westminster Abbey, is a large, mainly Gothic church, (it served as a cathedral from 1546 - 1556), in Westminster, London, just to the west of the Palace of Westminster. It is the traditional place of coronation and burial site for English monarchs.

The London Eye, also known as the Millennium Wheel, is the tallest (135 metres (443 ft)) Ferris wheel in Europe, and has become the most popular paid tourist attraction in the UK, visited by over 3 million people a year.

And one funny picture - Goose takes a shower in London's Hayde Park!

EntreCard's E-Mail: Ghost Dropper solution!

Hi Martin,

Thank you for your blog post (http://cornys-moneypage.blogspot.com/2010/02/entrecard-members-get-scammed-by-these.html).

You've raised valid concerns regarding users trying to cheat the system and we appreciate you taking the time to do the investigation.

For the time being, our developers have been able to fixed the problem relating to the "ghost droppers" from the site you told us about (http://?????????.blogspot.com/).
We anticipate other methods will come along and we will address those as they turn up.

Your investigation was very insightful, but we do not believe that all the users you've listed are cheating the system.
A few might, but not all of them. It's possible that some users are accessing your blog over a few days without clearing their cache. When this happens, the users will still see an entrecard widget (cached version) even though you have removed it. This could be the reason why you are still receiving drops.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Let's think about Winter Wonderland!

True Infrared Photography in a lightwave length between 760nm and 1000nm. -- absolute invisible for human eyes..

Human eyes only can "see" electromagnetic waves between 300nm and 760nm - the summary of this waves is what we know as "light".
Waves shorter then 300nm is "ultraviolet" light.
Waves longer then 760nm is "infrared" light.
Both - uv and ir - are invisible and thus color-less.

All you see here are the reflected infrared lightwaves. Chlorophyle is the magician - the classic IR-photography subject is a landscape+trees+clouds+water surfaces.

5 fantastic HDR images

What do you think - photoshopped, painted or real photos? :)

Fountain of Renmark, South Australia

HDR or high dynamic range photography is technique in which light and dark areas are used to illuminate the subject and highlight it. HDR technique allows to more accurately represent the wide range of exposure than normal digital imaging techniques.

More amazing HDR photos can be found on Flickr.
