Someone moonwalked over the cuckoo’s nest

Someone moonwalked over the cuckoo's nest

MJ’s unexpected death caused quite a splash in the Finnish news media… okay, not only here but globally.

His rough times are finally over, the first thought that crossed my mind.

I’m more of a rock-n-roll person, most of pop is like another world to me. That is why I see an unhappy human […]

Our unexpected yet very welcome guest

That’s what can happen when you’re sitting in the sunlight of an open terrace of your friend’s…

I love this website 🙂

Yeah a lot of freaky looking characters are found there, however there are plenty of truly fashion hits, too. Like this girl from Vaasa (or maybe she just shopped in Vaasa?) whose outfit seems almost perfect to me:

About Midsummer food habits and how to break them (a little)

About Midsummer food habits and how to break them (a little)

Juhannus is, shortly, the time of the year when Finns & Co. get themselves busy burning different foods to coals on fire :-D. Okay, okay, I’m just kidding. The correct name for this procedure is Grill’em all!. It’s authentic, comparatively healthy, and indisputably tasty.

The most popular kinds of Finnish barbecue are pork (ribs, […]

Juhannus is Midsummer and it is coming this weekend.

We’ll go grilling on the seashore, or stay indoors and watch a movie if it rains.

Water has been pouring down heavily from the skies for days, but we do not give up hope 🙂

“This” is of course European Parliament elections.

Europeans seem to be tired, frustrated, irritated, angry by now. The recession, jobs loss, ethnic conflicts, jawbone strategy of monopolists & co., and unclear future outlook are taking their toll on people’s political choices. Ultras, greens, pirates – whatever most sceptical or simply radical is available on […]

On the seashore on a cold sunny day

On the seashore on a cold sunny day

Harsh winds are blowing from the Baltic. The ones that tear waves into whitecups, bring storms, rip the trees of their branches. People walk or bicycle the coastline, smile at the sun, get chilled to the bone, and get back home happy. Some call it the stamina. Others say it’s the North […]

One of my favourite songs lately

One of my favourite songs lately

Happoradio – Puhu äänellä jonka kuulen

Kumpaa sinä pelkäät, melua vai rauhaa? Kumpaa sinä kaihdat, yksinäisyyttä vai laumaa?

Miksi sä itket, kun naapurissa jonkun lapsi nauraa?

Olet syvää vettä, luokse pääsemätön vuori Unohdettu ullakko, olet titaaninen kuori

Miksi sä itket, kun naapurissa jonkun lapsi nauraa? Miksi sä itket, kun radiossa joku rakkaudesta laulaa?

Puhu […]

Read newspapers daily… it’s a source of ever-lasting fun after all.

While going through used car deals in Autopokkari, my husband came across a very attractive offer indeed…

For the safety of your home

The text goes as follows:

Finnish government approved a bill on Thursday, according to which stores would be able to remain open on Sundays all year around from 12:00-18:00.

Smaller grocery stores with a floor-area of 400 square metres or less could trade around the clock if they wished.

Yahooo! Yes-yes-yesss (dancing all around)
