I normally don’t react to daily WordPress prompts when it
clutters fills my mailbox. Most of them slip through the cracks but there are some….Like when the prompt is All about me. I’m way too narcissistic and self-centered to ignore this one. It wants you to Explain why you chose your blog’s title and what it means to you. Which is exactly what I’m NOT going to do.

This pictures were taken of the famous fountain at the foot of the tallest building in the world, Buhr Khalifa in Dubai. The fountain is synchronised with music and changes so quickly and unexpectedly. Definitely worth the visit when in the city.
