Welcome to Talk 49 World.  Edition Number 2, 2024. In this edition we're going to the mountains, we're looking in on a choir, we're saying hello to a reinventor of bikes, and we're looking danger right in the eye!

A Saying from Tirol

I overheard this story in a Tirolean Gasthaus. It was just after church.

If you go to the top of a mountain and look at yourself in a mirror - you will see yourself at the top - and not at the bottom where you usually are!

Very true words from Tirol in Austria.

 January Words 

January's unique.  It happens only once. January is unlike any other  January before and different from all  others to come. This is because of our feelings and times.  January is high expectations we are  certain will happen.  We have, after all, a new year to welcome.  January is bright.  Everything is fine.  Our resolutions are still freshly baked. We still have resolve.  This year things are going to happen. Things are going to work.  And, January's the month when everyone's nice.  There's a universal feeling of good. People are not only spreading good cheer, they are receiving it, too.  So, go into the year with grace and good cheer and make them your own.  Your year will then be just as you want it!  I wish you a happy new year.  Nigel A. JAMES
