Optimism

According to neuroscientist Tali Sharot the human brain is hard-wired to be relentlessly optimistic. We sort of knew that I think. Judging by our behaviour it is always someone else who gets sick or has an accident. In Calgary everyone sets out to work in their cars expecting to get there on time, but with 56 crashes every day many don't make it.

Blue Skies make us optimistic

A surprise in Art. We have a famous artist in Calgary working out of my old gallery creating works in 3D. M. Real Fournier is doing very well thank you! There, we thought that it was only TV and movies that were in 3D!

When you live in such a beautiful area, you become optimistic.

Blue skies - definitely a reason for optimism (and I'm sure the Danish Landrace love blue skies - preferably with a bit of warming sunshine to compensate for lack of fleece!)

Rats - there really is a Danish Landrace sheep, not just a pig! And here was I thinking you were being humorous. I'd only heard of the pig!! It does look quite like the one I saw :)
