Quotes

"He was a rascal then. Once he was in the car and climbed over to the driver's side, putting the car in gear and drove it through the neighbour's fence. I put in 'Patrick the wombat' as the driver in the insurance claim, and the insurance company thought it was the funniest claim they'd ever heard" Mr Parker said
According to an article in "LIFE" magazine from 1945, the ax managed to "clip off most of the skull but leave intact one ear, the jugular vein and the base of the brain, which controls motor function."
"The German economy is performing strongly, which is one reason why we're choosing to expand in Germany, Europe's biggest hotel market. In addition, we've had a very positive reaction to our existing hotels in the country, showing that people appreciate Scandic as a brand and as a concept. We're also pleased to be extending our partnership with property owner Lars Wenaas" says Frank Fiskers, CEO of Scandic
"Secondly, giant pandas act as ambassadors, raising awareness about conservation in general. When visitors come to see Tian Tian and Yang Guang they also learn about the plight of many other animals, the importance of preserving ecological diversity and how they can help."
