Re: I smiled because...

My daughter was woken up at about 2am, and kept awake, last Saturday morning, by someone having a party at our nearby school (loud music, shouting etc.). Too far away to yell at them, she called the police. They said they'd send someone but it'd be about half an hour.

She got a call today from the police. They arrested a group of youths and are prosecuting. They may call her as a witness. They thanked her for her call.

The 50m pool was empty, no guards either. Water was bliss.

Because I just saw the wedding pics of Heidi Klum and Tokyo Hotel's Tom Kaulitz. They are so hot.

Never underestimate the "cave" factor. I don't think "he's trying to look older", though.

I'd die with his taste of muzzak, but whatevs.

Re: I smiled because...

At Aquabasilea, the charge for parking 11 hours is 28CHF. It goes up from then to 52CHF a day.

The charge for a lost ticket is 25CHF...

Re: I smiled because...

Because Karma exists.

And because an EFer has shared a bit of his magnificent life with us. A totally not random act of kindness.
