And just think: I got this in an automatic mail  message following a winning bid at Huuto.net – next to seller’s bank account number and all.

Electricity price is lifted up again in September 2011.
A couple of years ago I wouldn’t even think of switching to renewables – what a joke! 🙂

Now that I imagine the amount of bill we might get this coming winter (in winter 2010/2011 the maximum came up almost to EUR300 per month), the idea of maalämpö – ground heating – does not leave off my mind…

Some say it’s worth while, some say not. The installation costs are between 15,000 and 20,000 euro for a house as old as hours. A big investment, that is.

Go or not go? Hmmmmmm…

нашла еще одну группу, посвященную “родной” школе, и не без помощи одного из участников вспомнила, что в 80-х наш микрорайон и школа назывались “Волчья яма”.

Аж затошнило слегка.

А ЖЖ не пашет уже 4 дня. Ломка, однако.

Norway calling

Norway calling

First, grieving, anger, and fear came in.
Then, questions. A lot of them.

How many shooters were there in total? Killing over 50 people ALONE is an action movie superman’s task, and the guy was not even a seal/commando.

Why the killer was allowed so much time to act? The media are full of speculations of how the Norway police couldn’t find any boats or how the emergency call center did not believe calls from worried parents whose children texted about the shooting not daring to dial a number when hiding on that damn island. The result is, anyway, no help for almost 1.5 hour and 76 bodies.

How come that high precision weapons and explosive substances and components wander about in psychotic hands without any supervision?

Finally, how much are we ready to tolerate? Where’s the limit of respect for the freedom of word & thought and where’s the limit of safety of living side to side with mentally distorted people when we all try to keep our lives private and our own problems (if any) hidden from others?

Although deep inside I might be much of an anarchist, sometimes the world’s doings make me think that people are not ready to take the responsibility for freedom. They will always use an opportunity to say and do what they want but never ready to pay for the devastating results of their words and doings.

Oh yes, Breivik will soon be behind bars for a looong time. Out of the game until, say, 60yo, which is practically forever. But there are hudreds, if not thousands of others, as distorted, irresponsible, violent and addictive as he is. The same people who used him to implement their will and their ideas, will find and prepare new killer machines. They cannot be prosecuted because they’re always invisible and absent from the picture, never directly ordering to kill or blow up, their participance is hard to prove in a democratic society…

A dead end?

Hopefully not.

But I’m still afraid that in 10 or 20 years from now democracy and freedom will be merely a dream. The humanity will have to choose between security and responsibility, and the majority’s choice is quite obvious.

VaasaTalk forum is open!!!

VaasaTalk forum is open!!!

A brand new forum for all Vaasa’s English speaking people has been opened!

Quote the forum Administrator:

Some time ago i found an interesting article in the most popular Finnish newspaper, Helsingin Sanomat. The article was saying that Finns place fifth in English proficiency. So i was wondering why not have an internet forum where we all can talk in English? What if we get a place where international language will be used in communication? What if we start doing that in our most beautiful area of Finland – Ostrobothnia and, particularly, the sunshine city of Vaasa? VaasaTalk is the place where we all can speak the same language, learn the language, share our views, and get to know each other!

Sounds cool?
Let’s try and welcome to VaasaTALK, today is the 1st of May 2011, the labor day and the birthday of VaasaTALK!

GO!

Everything is mini- nowadays. First we got a mini-laptop, the latest buy is a mini-sewing machine. The big version is actually far TOO big and would demand a separate working table while this one can be kept in the cupboard someplace and taken out prior to sewing.

And I’ve already got an idea how to revive our old armchair that lives in the guest room…

There is a law in Finland that prohibit advertising of strong alcohol on TV and other medias. Does anyone know if the law also works for internet?

When you go to www.jackdaniels.com give Finland as a location also the birthday (sic!) you get that:

But doing the same to www.finlandia.com will let you in:
