A la sainte terre – Saunterers

This was on FaceBook today – Historical Snapshots

I thought with everything moving so fast these days we should all learn to saunter through life and smell the roses. Look around and realize the beauty around us.

Hiking – “I don’t like either the word or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains – not hike! Do you know the origin of that word ‘saunter?’ It’s a beautiful word. Away back in the Middle Ages people used to go on pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and when people in the villages through which they passed asked where they were going, they would reply, ‘A la sainte terre,’ ‘To the Holy Land.’ And so they became known as sainte-terre-ers or saunterers. Now these mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not ‘hike’ through them.”

Did You Know – 12/13/2017

 

  1. In 1904 a magazine advertisement, ran by the Cooper Underwear Company, started advertising the T-shirt not as an underwear item, but as a regular piece of clothing. The ad showed a masculine guy wearing the product, which had the following tag line: “no safety pins, no buttons, no needle, no thread”. The purpose of the ad was to show the clothing item in a new light. The company wanted to re-brand the product and to market it as a comfortable piece of clothing that doesn’t require the replacement of any buttons. The T-shirt was, thus, marketed to bachelors, who had no women around to sew back the ripped buttons on their shirts.

2.   Eating cheese in moderation is linked to a lower chance of developing heart disease or having a stroke

3.  A one dog year is not equal to 7 human years. Dogs don’t age parallel to people, they actually age more quickly at first, then slow down. Depending on their size and breed, a 1-year-old dog is about the same as a 15-year-old person a 2-year-old dog is like a 24-year-old person and every year after that is equal to about 4-6 human years

 

4. There is a wrapping paper set that lets you wrap a stack of presents so they look like a cheeseburger.You can purchase the sets on http://www.giftcouture.comhttp://www.giftcouture.com/product/cheeseburger-wrapping-paper

 

5. As of the third quarter of 2017, Facebook had 2.07 billion monthly active users. In the third quarter of 2012, the number of active Facebook users had surpassed 1 billion, making it the first social network ever to do so. Active users are those which have logged in to Facebook during the last 30 days.

Some days you just need this sort of video to make you chuckle . A friend sent it to me via FaceBook and its a few years old but so funny. Could happen to any of us. Well it could if we lived in a very cold climate, which I don’t.

New Zealand – Best Bed And Breakfast Ever

Screen Shot 2016-08-21 at 1.57.58 PM

Tongariro at Makotuku Bed and Breakfast

If you are about to travel to New Zealand this bed and breakfast is a must.
It is owned by my dear friend Julie and her husband. It is one of the most beautiful areas in New Zealand. Julie also is the most hospitable person I know and will make you extremely welcome.
Right below Mt Ruapahu and exquisite picture as you can see from above which is taken from her lounge room.

If you are a skier, snowboarder, like cycling on the amazing cycle tracks in the area or just traveling through this is a perfect place to stay.
It’s a great place to stay summer or winter.

At long last she now has a Facebook page which gives you an idea of the area and all you can do plus all the contact information.

Go check it out. If you are going that way it will be the best stop you will make.
I know as I have stayed there many times.

Just click on the pictures to go to the Facebook page
