what a year!

Romania takes Europa, the cow, at a richer grass; some thousand km far, Slovenia joins the Eurozone and adopts euro as its currency. Crossing the Atlantic, Lula da Silva, in Brasil, begins his second four-year term in office; Russia takes over presidency of the U.N. Security Council; Germany takes over G8 presidency from Russia.

As video killed the radio star, internet killed newspapers print version and here we are: the world's oldest newspaper "The Post Och Inrikes Tidningar", in Sweden goes out of print and from today will only be published on the Internet. ( Reuters says three copies of the paper will be printed and stored in university libraries to keep the tradition alive.)

Since I am a Le grand bleu fan, I couldn't let this out: 2007 is the Year of the Dolphin. Go here and adopt one... imagine you could take it home, but let it leave into the warm waters, since the planet needs such cute inhabitants...
