The never-heard word

Picture from VectorStock “Shopping on sale”

Some days ago, during a meeting, I heard something which would deserve the Nobel prize for literature or even for biology, being such a perfect fusion of two “similar” entities:

PURCHASEMENT.

A never-heard word which is for sure the best possible child of Ms Purchasing and Mr Procurement!

We stand with Ukraine

The attack of Russia against Ukraine does not stop and every day the war becomes dramatically harder.

In Switzerland a lot of spontaneous organisations are collecting aid material to help the people on the battlefield and the escaping refugees.

Today I saw these flags at the Renault/Dacia garage in my village. The now well known colours seemed to mix with the brilliant tones of the finished Carnival…

I think the colours are not a random coincidence: they clearly resemble the Ukrainian flag and the white probably is a cry for peace!

The Korean mosquito

I was just reading about a new variety of mosquito, aedes koreicus, which can live at low temperatures, and which is now present in Europe, after arriving from Asia with the globalisation…

Yesterday one of these new insects was just resting outside of my window, enjoying the fresh clean air (5 degree C!) in the morning.

Sunset

After work, a walk in the village to see the cold nice sunset…

I was hoping to find a lot of corncobs on the field, but they had already been harvested.

The number plate

A weird biker is waiting for the green light in Zurich.

His number plate could not probably fit in the right place and so he decided to use it as a belt, a very high waist belt!

Swiss fashion…
