Denmark is now a creditor nation

This just in - The Danish National Bank has just released a press statement saying that Denmark is now a creditor nation. Denmark now owes less money to other countries than other countries owe Denmrk. This is the first time since World War II. Economically this puts Denmark in a class of countries like Norway and Switzerland.

This is great news for Danes - since the eighties we have been working on getting rid of the foreign dept through a tight economy. It will probably take a few more years before we have consolidated our position, but this is an important milestone in Danish history.

Summertime and new thread ideas?

Today, Denmark - along with all of the European Union - changed to Summertime, moving the time one hour ahead, so we're now at UTC+2 (CEST) rather than UTC+1 (CET).

Looking out the window it seems a bit far fetched, but spring and summer is coming! A link to the list of what ships visit the cruise harbor Langelinje (unfortunately only available in Danish) has been added to the bottom of the Langelinje thread, and I've begun considering the Summer's additions to Copenhagen Pictures. One thing whih will be added is a thread about shopping in Copenhagen and Denmark - I see a lot of requests for this, so sure thing, it's coming.

What content do you think should be added to Copenhagen Pictures? Let us know - click on "Comments" and tell us!
