Spa is a Belgian town located in Liège Province, and the town where the term spa originates. Spa is one of Belgium's most popular tourist destinations, being renowned for its natural mineral springs and production of 'Spa' mineral water, which is exported worldwide. In 2021, the town became part of the transnational UNESCO World Heritage Site under the name 'Great Spas of Europe'.

As the site of cold springs with alleged healing properties, Spa has been frequented as a watering-place since the 14th century. It is the town of Spa which has become eponymous with any place having a natural water source that is believed to possess special health-giving properties, known as a spa. The Spa town grew at that time, in the oldest iron and steel centre of Liège Province. The ban Spa was created around 1335 and included two urban concentrations, vilhe of Creppe and vilhe Spas, 2 kilometres away. Prior to the exploitation of mineral water, the steel industry developed communication lines, which made it possible to develop the spa town.

Recently had a consultation with Mr. Rosner. Needed to discuss financial matters. We had previously used Mr. Rosner to draw up wills, advanced directives and power of attorney. Mr. Rosner is caring, capable and extremely knowledgeable. He is an expert in eldercare law. This firm is truly excellent. Facilities are clean and comfortable. Staff is more than helpful. Highly recommended!!

When a unexpected family crisis comes suddenly and an excellent, very knowledgeable law firm specializing in elder care is essential, the Fink Rosner Ershow-Levenberg is the law firm to directly go to. I found very quickly not all who state they are elder care attorneys are created equal. A friend highly recommended an attorney who supposedly specialized in elder care law. I found the firm had very limited knowledge of elder care law as I wasted time and money for a consultation. While dealing with a family crisis I also had to quickly find a competent law firm truly specializing in elder care law. I asked attorneys I knew to recommend an attorney that specializes in elder care and two not one both named an attorney named Gene Rosner. In short order Mr. Rosner took care of all the elder care concerns I raised which allowed me to focus on my family. He and the law firm are professional, experienced and very knowledgeable in the field of elder care. My family and I could not have been more pleased with Mr. Rosner and the staff of the law firm. When a senior woman my wife and I knew had huge elder care problems pertaining to issues related to her husband, we paid for her to consult with Gene. This woman had used another attorney previously who she said was very unhappy about and paid for services that were not forthcoming. I cannot say enough good things about the elder care attorneys of Fink, Rosner Ershow-Levenberg.

Frösö Runestone

Frösöstenen is the northern-most raised runestone in the world and Jämtland's only runestone. It originally stood at the tip of ferry terminal on the sound between the island of Frösön and Östersund. The stone dates to between 1030 and 1050. It has now been relocated to the lawn in front of the local county seat due to the construction of a new bridge, between 1969 and 1971, on the original site.

Frösö runestone inscription means: Austmaðr, Guðfastr's son, had this stone raised and this bridge built and Christianized Jämtland. Ásbjörn built the bridge. Trjónn and Steinn carved these runes.
