Here is how to fix your Blogger dynamic views theme bug that makes menu and custom CSS disappear causing websites and blogs look ugly.

Are you a Strava user? Did you know that linking your account to Relive.cc will produce recaps like above? I just found out how to embed these to Blogger (as there is no ready-made method available): embed a Youtube video but change the video link to an MP4 link that you'll find on the Relive page source. Then replace the Youtube content to the one you copied from Relive. My second ride on the green island began with the Woodstown climb up to the summit again. It's such a nice uphill to ride...

Already, the European Commission’s State of the Union web page has been updated several times, with new language versions and documents relating to the future of Europe debate #FutureOfEurope , president Jean-Claude Juncker’s state of the European Union 2017 #SOTEU speech and the draft Commission Work Programme #CWP2018 . The SOTEU press release IP/17/3164 offers highlights from the speech in 23 official EU languages, the text of the address SPEECH/17/3165 is available even in Gaelic and on...

Wherever I ride, I want to find a bike shop and something local as a souvenir. In Tallaght I visited Cycle Superstore. It is a big place, covering everything from MTB to eBikes, from tools to rainwear. I didn't find anything of particular interest, and the price level wasn't any cheaper than in Finland. For my Taiwan ride I got a 2 LED front light  weighing only 15.7 gram. Tiny, and yet it seems to provide ample light (80 lumen) for an hour, or a dimmer beam for a longer ride. Another nice...

Villa Blåkulla -

Nunnaluostarin kasvimaan reunalta. At the vegetable garden of a nunnery . Satamasta. Joku on majoittunut tänne . In a warf. Somebody lives here. Viitta osoittaa asuntoveneelle. Signaling a boathouse. Kerrostalo. Condominium. Toinen kerrostalo puutarhan pikkulinnuille. Another condo for small birds. Yhteisöllisyyttä lisäävää kirjojen kierrätystä. Swapping books surely contributes to a sense of community. Ei vain koristeellisuuden vuoksi. Not only a decoration. En ole ulkokoristeiden...

While War of the Ring is a fantastically good game, its expansions can also be fantastically hard to get hold of. Their rarity means that when I was lucky enough to see a copy of Warriors of Middle-earth at our friendly local game store, I pretty much bought it immediately. Warriors adds six factions to the game, effectively taking event cards from the base game, like ents, and expanding them into full factions with figures on the board, which the players can activate and mobilize for the war...

Kuuntelin tämän vuoden Puolan Wroclawissa järjestetyssä kansainvälisessä kirjastokonferenssissa IFLA:ssa kreikkalaisten Anthi Katsirikoun ja Vasiliki Rigakoun esityksen From the European Institutions to the European Citizens: the information channels through the European Documentation Centres (EDCs) Valokuva: Tommi Peuhkurinen / Eduskunta EU-tallekirjastot (=European Documentation Centres, EDC) ovat EU-asioihin erikoistuneita paikalliskirjastoja. Niitä löytyy kaikista EU-maista, joko...

London 1 London 2 The photographs were taken on August 1st in London. I walked around lake Suolikas in Nuuksio today. I saw four Gavia stellata , two parents and two young ones. I wondered whether the birds had nested at lake Suolikas, which is a bit too large for them, or whether they had come from a nearby lake, which would mean that the young ones already can fly. The birds were diving and making noise (which can't be called singing). I thought about Donald Trump and the "brand" of United...

I mentioned ages ago that before we got into this whole living card game thing, the previous time I played any kind of card game that wasn't either bridge or poker was with a Magic: the Gathering Ice Age starter set. The thing about Magic is that as near as I can tell, Richard Garfield pretty much invented the modern collectible card game. All the other card games we play, whether Lord of the Rings , Game of Thrones or Arkham Horror , use mechanics that are functionally almost identical to...

The heavily anticipated mega blitz chess tournament of the year concluded in Pori. Here are the results, highlights, observations, and commentary from LauttSSK 2: Ashwin Kumar (2114) Petr Vesely (2076) Jyrki Heikkinen (2020) Pekka Kauppala (2017) Boards 4–1 Results Day 1 – Group A – 7th (54½/84): 11/21 (52 %), perf. 2024 11 (52 %), perf. 1950 16½ (79 %), perf. 2108 16 (76 %), perf. 1981 Day 2 – Division 1 – 22nd (48/108): 1. 13½/27 (50 %), perf. 2161 12 (44 %), perf. 2036 11½ (43...

Parolan asema -

Pionit pistivät tänä vuonna parastaan tähän asti ja kukkivat runsaasti koko heinäkuun lopun, kun vauhtiin pääsivät siis. Kolmea erilaista ja upea tuoksu. Lempikukkia sillä näistä tulee mieleen lapsuus, äidin kukkapenkki ja kaikkea kivaa.  Piti samalla näyttää jo viime kesästä aseman ala-aulaa komistanutta senkkiä. Valtavan kokoinen mööbeli löytyi naapurin varastosta ja on aika sopivan kokoinen korkeaan aulaan. Detaljit on siinä kyllä kohdillaan ja vaikka pari vedintä...

And this is the moment when we're coming undone, undone. This is the bottle, fill it in, fill it in. And this is the moment we're both running from, running from. (Andrew Belle - Honey And Milk) Hey. I'm pretty sure you aren't awake. I miss you. I'm sorry I never replied to your message. I feel like driving to Finland tomorrow but that's probably a bad idea. I really want to come, though. I know I'm the biggest douche ever. You've always known that, I've always known that. Everyone has always...

Why do same pickups sound different on different guitars? The old andwer is the quality and the materials, usually the choice of wood. But things aren't explained with just that. The main difference is the scale length, and the positioning of the pickup. Don't forget that we're talking about a 3D object, so height and tilt angle make also huge differences. But longer than Gibson scale and the mic-placing lengthwise does make a telecaster sound like a telecaster even with a PAF. With an acoustic...

Uusin Star Trek sarja on melkein julkaistu. Star Trek: Discovery saa ensi-iltansa 24. syyskuuta. Sitä odotellessa voimme tarkkailla miten Christian Post lehti reagoi sarjassa käytettyyn jumalattomaan menoon. Christian Post on lukaissut Entertainment Weekly lehden haastattelun, jossa sarjan näyttelijät kertovat kokemuksistaan kuvauksissa. Se nimittäin sisältää kohdan, jossa jakson käsikirjoittaja Kirsten Beyer muistuttaa näyttelijä  Jason Isaacsia siitä millaisessa tulevaisuudessa...

B-BLENDER I didn't even get into mechanics in my previous blog post. But there are many such mechanical events that are often overlooked. Such as Bigsby rocker bridge. Paul A. Bigsby got it right, he knew his mechanics, but many people and companies even trade off the first rocking - non-adjustable soft-metal bridge for a solid adjustable hard metal bridge. And then run into trouble with guitar going out of tune. The aluminium bridge is intentionally from softer material so it doesn't let the...

to thank you all for your concern for me. I am fine, and I hope you out there are too xx. I did not mean to be away quite this long and I am not sure how this time has got away from me. The hand healing took longer than I expected, there was some nerve damage that took a long time to heal but all is well now. When summer finally arrived here at the Arctic, we had some new snow in the beginning of June even, I have been very busy out in the yard. I have done some big scale work in the little...

I'm back with my second ever empties post. I can't believe July is almost over! Time flies like a discount airline.  The Saem's Healing Tea Garden Green Tea Cleansing Water is my current favorite makeup remover. It doesn't melt off mascara or eyeliner too well, but it does a good job getting rid of the bulk of my daily face paint. This big jug was a holiday release that I got around New Year's and I got almost six months of daily use out of it. I've already picked up a regular sized one for a...

Zoo 1 Zoo 2 The photographs were taken at Korkeasaari Zoo on July 12th. My Specialized Sport TR bicycle shoes are starting to need replacement, being worn out. I have got over 25,000 km of riding with them. However, the shoe model I bought six years ago is no longer available, and I need to look for a replacement. Before the Specialized shoes I had Adidas bicycle shoes, but they didn't fit my feet, and in fact my feet got so bad that ordinary walking and standing was hurting. With the...




Susannas Travels -

Paluu aurinkoiseen Italiaan. Löysin 20e bussilipun Itävallasta Pohjois-Italiaan. Vastassa oli aluksi suuria vihreitä alppinäkymiä kylineen, sen jälkeen kauniita tuoksuvia kukkia tien varsilla. Kaikki oli heti jotenkin vihreämpää ja on erittäin kaunista laittaa tien varsille ruusuja, joita matkailijat ja muut saavat ihailla. Tästä Veronan ruusukaupunkisuunnittelusta saisivat monet muutkin kaupungit ottaa oppia! Sade vaihtui aurinkoon. Puutkin tuoksuivat bussiin asti sisälle...

Ensi viikolla on 20-23.7 taas Värjärikillan järjestämät värjäripäivät, tänä vuonna Lepaalla. Siellä on erilaisia kursseja, ja yhtenä on mm Outi Sipilän vetämä kurssi luonnonpuretteista. Hän oli kirjoittanut mielenkiintoisen artikkelin keväänä Värillä-lehteen siitä, miten tärkeää olisi, että kun kokeillaan erilaisia uusia purete ja väriaineyhdistelmiä, niin myös niiden valonkestoja testattaisiin ja erityisesti että näistä tuloksista myös kerrottaisiin...

Bulimikon ahdistuspäiväkirja vol.2 -

I look forward to autumn and the pungent air. The head of a cotton candy and tired. Spring good rhythm is gone and you feel quite impossible that this sometimes manage to skarppaamaan. I have not signed up to the University, the Master's scared it. Remains fully in its infancy, and somehow not currently believe in and it started to receive ideas. I guess now seriously even consider among the study failure, but I feel pretty helpless about it. I think I should just take the bull by the horns and...

Tämä on varmaan yksi kauneimpia tekstejä suomeksi. You Tubessa , Vesa-Matti Loirin tulkinta  myös You Tubessa. Täällä Katri-Helena esittää Nocturnen Elävässä arkistossa. Ruislinnun laulu korvissani, tähkäpäiden päällä täysi kuu; kesä-yön on onni omanani, kaskisavuun laaksot verhouu. En ma iloitse, en sure, huokaa; mutta metsän tummuus mulle tuokaa, puunto pilven, johon päivä hukkuu, siinto vaaran tuulisen, mi nukkuu, tuoksut vanamon ja varjot veen; niistä sydämeni...

Later that day the hobbits held a meeting of their own in Bilbo's room. After the massive conference in the previous chapter, Bilbo and Frodo recuperate, while Merry and Pippin insist they be allowed to go with Frodo. First, though, Elrond sends out scouts to gather information, and the hobbits spend two months hanging out in Rivendell. Eventually the scouts return, with little news except that the Nazgûl are gone, though probably not destroyed. So it's time to leave for Mordor. But who's...

Destination Unknown. Pat O'Brien (Matt Brennan), Betty Compson (Ruby Smith). Betty Compson got started in Al Christie comedies, had her breakthrough in George Loane Tucker's ("he taught me everything I know") legendary The Miracle Man starring Lon Chaney (one of the films believed lost that I would most like to see; the fragment I have seen is electrifying), appeared in England in films by Graham Cutts,  including in Woman to Woman and The White Shadow (with Alfred Hitchcock as an assistant)...

From the left: The Saem's Eco Earth Power Tone Up Sun Cream, A'Pieu's Pure Block Natural Daily Sun Cream Since July is fast approaching, I thought it would be fitting to do a little review of the two facial sun screens I've been using recently:  The Saem's Eco Earth Power Tone Up Sun Cream  (SPF 50+ PA+++) and A'Pieu's Pure Block Natural Daily Sun Cream (SPF 45 PA+++). This isn't really a comparison of the two, since they have pretty different formulas. The former is an inorganic (meaning...

Eduard Mörike zwanzigjährig als Student in Tübingen, Bleistiftzeichnung von 1824. Original uploader: Darldarl at bg.wikipedia. Gemeinfrei Du bist Orplid, mein Land! Das ferne leuchtet; Vom Meere dampfet dein besonnter Strand Den Nebel, so der Götter Wange feuchtet. Uralte Wasser steigen Verjüngt um deine Hüften, Kind! Vor deiner Gottheit beugen Sich Könige, die deine Wärter sind. Eduard Mörike (1831). Hugo Wolf composed a famous song to this poem in 1888. Remarks on Mörike by Claude...

(Jaan tämän kirjoittamani epäinspiraatiotarinan pahoitellen, että se on englanniksi. Aivoni ei oikein taivu suomenkieliseen kaunokirjoittamiseen.) By rights, Helena should have died at birth. She was born with a Wrong, and everyone knew that people with a Wrong were better off dead, anyway. But Helena was a princess, and her mother the Queen hired the best magician in the world to ensure that she lived. The magician, whose name was Emery, was skilled and worked tirelessly night and day, and...
