Emails that are sent around are great ways of keeping in touch with people you don’t often talk to or write to. I read somewhere that they do say in an unusual way ‘hi, I’m thinking about you.’ Some say that they are impersonal and other don’t like them, but when you have lived in different places around the world and have colleagues and friends from each corner of the Universe, it is great when you receive an email that tells you that someone is thinking about you.

I was born and bred in Central Africa, educated in South Africa and the UK, and my career took me to living in many other places around the world. I was looking at my address book the other day and the business cards that I’ve collected over the past 30+ years of working and wonder how I can keep in touch with colleagues and friends.

I recently received this email and although I didn’t read it immediately, when I sat down to catch up with my personal correspondence I was blown away by the content.

Amazing striped icebergs

Icebergs in Lake Winnipeg sometimes have stripes,
formed by layers of snow that react to different conditions.

Blue stripes are often created when a crevice in the ice sheet
fills up with melted water and freezes so quickly that no bubbles form.

When an iceberg falls into the lake, a layer of water can freeze to the underside.
If this is rich in algae, it can form a green stripe.

Brown, black and yellow lines are caused by sediment,
picked up when the ice sheet grinds downhill towards the lake.

Frozen Wave Picâs – Nature is amazing!

The water froze the instant the wave broke through the ice.
That’s what it is like in Lake Winnipeg where it is the coldest weather in decades.
Water freezes the instant it comes in contact with the air.
The temperature of the water is already some degrees below freezing.
Just look at how the wave froze in mid-air!!!

Having the Internet means that we get to see something
that we never imagined!
