Snails do, too.

Just left the package outside overnight and now… there’s not much left of it. Damn 🙂

Simply couldn’t resist 😀

On the edge of August, dusk, rain…

On the edge of August, dusk, rain...

And desperate barbecues. Before the summer ends.

More hot summer days, anyone?

More hot summer days, anyone?

The higher the temperature is, the more violent thunderstorms are to be expected, which many sun lovers have completely forgotten… Hesari is reporting today that at least too houses and a summer cottage were devastated from fire when lightning hit them. The places are damn too close to owr town, and we heard […]

In the barbecue mood

Nothin’ can spoil it, even a whole day of rain 🙂

Straight Edge Society™, Multicultural Interactive Real Approach™, YEAH!

You know, sometimes words said or written have that much difference from their original meanings… I face those differences more often day by day now. What you would think if you see something like “Multicultural Interactive Real Approach”? Think for a minute…

Whenever you complain to local pediatricians on your baby crying a lot or apparently having stomach aches the answer is you should give’er reladrops. Any time, any place, and with […]

A good old song ’bout breakup

A good old song 'bout breakup

And HOW Ultra Bra sing it, mmm… + somewhat Kaurismäki style video.

Ultra Bra – Sinä lähdit pois / You walked away

It’s funny that people produced a lot of alternative texts for the refrain 😀

Sinä lähdit pois, minä ammuin parvekkeelta kalpenevaan selkääsi. Kiersit verilammikon ja arvaan ettet kadu tätä eroa.

Sinä lähdit […]

I am really missing the traditional cool and wet Finnish summer. Believe it or not 🙂

Auringonkukka sateessa

Waiting for Mr. Goose

Waiting for Mr. Goose

No, it’s not St. Martin’s Day or anything, we just went to Turku to do some bureaucracy and bought a gorgeous 4.5 kilo frozen goose at a local market.

While we were driving back in +32C heat it went from icy cold to cool, so I kept it in marinade overnight and finally cooked […]
