Bavaria’s beer garden season starts in mid April and runs right through to October. The shade of ancient horse chestnut trees become a rendezvous for both young and old, rich and not-so-rich, and locals and visitors alike: a place to enjoy a convivial glass of cold beer and some tasty Bavarian snacks. You can even bring your own food (but not drinks).

Mario Lemieux, born October 5, 1965 is a Canadian former professional ice hockey player. He played parts of 17 National Hockey League (NHL) seasons with the Pittsburgh Penguins from 1984 to 2006, assuming ownership in 1999. Nicknamed "The Magnificent One" or Le Magnifique (as well as "Super Mario"), he is widely acknowledged to have been one of the greatest players of all time. A gifted playmaker and fast skater despite his large size, Lemieux often beat defencemen with fakes and dekes.

The extinct Madagascan elephant bird (Aepyornis maximus) laid eggs measuring 13 in (33 cm) long and with a liquid capacity of 8.5 litres (2.25 US gal). The latter measurement is the equivalent of 7 ostrich, 183 chicken or more than 12,000 hummingbird eggs!

The Elephant bird became extinct about 1,000 years ago and lived in the island of Madagascar, off the coast of Africa. Its eggs were the largest ever single cell to have existed on Earth.

I fixed the leaky taps in my washing basin a day before yesterday.
I am very proud of it.
The problem of the leaky taps had been pain in my neck; The state of the hot water tap was so bad that I hadn't used it for months.
I had had a plumber called in but although he was expensive, he wasn't good at all so I didn't want to use him again.
No other plumbers to turn to so I took the matter into my hand even though I were completely new to it and things didn't go exactly to the instructions on Youtube somehow, they got fixed by my hands. The local DIY Shop guy gave me some tips as well, which started me off.

My math teacher in my middle school would say,"a diligent man can not beat a clever man and a clever man can not beat a lucky man."

I said this to a friend of my husband's and he laughed very heartily so I guess the anedote will be qualified for Anton's request.

Katy Perry (born Katheryn E. Hudson, 1984, USA) encourages her fans not only to work hard, but to be proud and celebrate their hard work when it turns into achievements.

She posted an inspirational message about hard work for her fans when she was on the cover of Forbes magazine in 2015.

"There is a difference between being humble and working hard to see the fruits of your labor blossom, and your dreams realized," she said on Instagram.

"Hopefully this cover can be an inspiration to women out there that it's okay to be proud of hard earned success and that there is no shame in being a boss."
