100 word story – Grandpa’s enormous clock.

Tales from the mind of Kristian

Joanna thought it hilarious that her grandfather kept such an enormous clock in his living room.

He’d never arrived on time for anything in his life.

He was late for her school play and late to pick her up from school.

Grandma said he was even late for their wedding.

She asked him, “Grandpa, why do you have such a large clock?”

He replied, “It’s to remind me that even though we put time on a pedestal and it looms large in our lives, we have to remember not to focus too much on it that we forget to live.”

Saint Gallen, Switzerland

Rolandomio Travel

Yesterday, I visited the city of Saint Gallen in eastern Switzerland. With its 75000 inhabitants, it is the eight largest city in the country. St. Gallen achieved world fame through its embroidery industry, which reached its peak at the end of the 19th century. At that time, embroidery products accounted with 18 percent for the largest share of exports in the Swiss economy. To this day, embroidery and haute couture fashion is made in St. Gallen, which woman does not know the fashion of Akris 🙂 Today, the beautiful embroidery can be admired in the Textile Museum St. Gallen that is dedicated to the history of the textile industry in eastern Switzerland. The city is also interesting for tourists due to the Abbey Church and Library, which has been included in the World Heritage list by UNESCO.

The Abbey church is considered one of the last monumental religious buildings of the…

A new Station Clock, can you read the time?

I got it ~ Can you? 8)

Rolandomio Travel

The new train station clock in the St. Gallen provides strong reactions from the public. People are shaking their heads about this new clock! Nobody can read the time! It’s new to all, but revolutionary for a train station clock, probably unique in the world! The travelers are annoyed by the circles, crosses and rectangles that have recently adorned the façade of St. Gallen’s train station hall. This clock is far too complicated and in my opinion completely unnecessary and it needs a „university degree“ to decipher the time. Last but not least, if travelers are inside the hall, its even more complicated because the clock display is reversed!

It is a binary clock. To be honest, I had some trouble to read the time of this “light installation” in the sunshine and then to decipher the binary…

They say beauty comes from….



“They say beauty comes from a spirit that has weathered many hardships in life
and somehow continues with resilience.
Grace can be found in a soul who ages softly, even amid the tempest.
I think the loveliest by far is the one whose gentle heart bears a hundred scars
from caring, yet still finds a way to pick up the lamp, one more time, to light
the way for love.”

Humane Society Horses and Donkeys

Horses and burros built this country…

Donkey Whisperer Farm Blog

Horses and burros built this country. They deserve the care of loving owners and freedom on the range.

Domesticated for millennia, horses still have the brains and bodies of prey animals—the instinct to bolt at the hint of danger at a speed (up to 40 miles per hour) that can carry them to safety. Burros are nearly as fast, but use their intelligence to assess threats before fleeing.

The Prevent All Soring Tactics (PAST) Act would amend the Horse Protection Act to end the failed system of industry self-policing, strengthen penalties and make other reforms necessary to finally end this torture. Urge your U.S. Representative to pass the PAST Act.
