A woman visiting Doha decides to go ice fishing. So she cuts a hole in the ice and sets up her stool when a voice booms from overhead, "There are no fish under that ice."
She moves her stool over a few feet and cuts another hole. Again, a voice says, "There are no fish under that ice!"
"Is that you God?" asks the woman.
"No. This is the manager of the Villagio ice rink."
Two days of amazing, absorbing and fascinating football. Bayern Munich and Dortmund FC outclassed the Spainiards giants.
Being a huge follower of Barcelona and Messi, it was a huge dissappointment but yesterday's RM's was a bit of relief.
Some interesting tweets :
'Wow. Spainsh teams EIGHT a lot of goals in Germany'
'Lewandowski? More like LeFOURdowski'
Looking forward for all 'German' affairs in the final.

At a press conference in New York City on Monday, the company's CEO Bas Lansdorp announced an open call for anyone to apply for the flight, knowing that they will never be able to return home. The mission will be one-way only because there currently is no technology that would enable a return trip from Mars to Earth.

Until a man duplicates a blade of grass, Nature can laugh at his so-called scientific knowledge. Remedies from chemicals will never stand in favorable comparison with the products of Nature, the living cell of a plant, the final result of the rays of the sun, the mother of all life.

I take a lot of photos. It is my hobby and my passion. I am lucky enough to be able to earn a small amount of money from my hobby and passion, which although very small does kind of make me semi-professional. A status that I quite enjoy giving myself. Why do I take photographs? The simple answer is I can’t draw. I am artistic with artistic tendencies and a creative mind but I need a camera to produce my art for me. I started with my first SLR camera (Single Lens Reflex) and a tiny black and white dark room in my coal shed back home in the UK 33 years ago, and I have been with digital cameras ever since they became available. I sold my first picture at the age of 16.

Has anyone else visited the QP Environment Fair, which is open to the public starting today until April 16 at the Doha Exhibition Center?
I was there earlier today and was really impressed by the exhibits. There are also lots of activities, including a play that children and their parents would really enjoy.
Check it out! It is on until Tuesday from 8:00 AM - 8:00 PM. You'll get gifts from some of the exhibitors as well.
If you haven't been to the ASF yet, you don't know what you're missing!!!!
