Oho, eipäs ole hetkeen tullut kirjoitettua mitään.. No, eipä täällä lähiaikoina olekkaan tapahtunut mitään kummallisuuksia. Viime perjantaina kyllästyin kämppisten juoppuiluun ja yrjönkadun ainaiseen meteliin ja otin taksin North Rydeen moikkaamaan Philiä ja Johnia. Yksi elokuva vaihtui seuraavaan ja lyhyeksi tarkoitettu visiitti muuttui viikonloppulomaksi poikien hoellihuoneessa. Lauantaina hyvin nukutun yön jälkeen heräiltiin hotelliaamiaisen suhteen ihan liian […]

SAS-yhtiön lentopisteet olivat vanhenemassa ja huomasin yhtiöllä olevan reitti Kööpenhaminasta Newcastleen, jossa en ollut koskaan käynyt useista suunnitelmista huolimatta. Herätys oli aikainen ja vaihtoaika Kastrupissa pitkä, mutta matka sujui ilman yllätyksiä. Hitaalla metrojunalla keskustaan nuhruiselta lentoasemalta tihkusateessa. Hotelli aivan ytimessä High Bridge -kadulla. Kaupungissa jokin rugby-turnaus, kalliit hotellihinnat, mutta aivan kaikki ei voi koskaan optimoitua. ...

Pyörähdin isossa Wetherspoonin Quayside-baarissa tavoitteena syödä jotain, mutta paikka oli niin hektisen ruuhkaisessa tilanteessa, että poistuin paikalta. Kiipesin rannalta ylöspäin pitkää jyrkkää porraskujaa, jonka päässä näyttävä baari, joka oli alustavalla listallani. Upea baari sisältäkin, mutta täällä ei ruokaa näkyvästi esillä. Päivän toinen North Riding IPA, tässä 6,2%, pehmeä, maltainen. Lievästi katkeroa, mutta ei riittävästi. Seitsemän caskia...

When I get the travel itch, I guess I scratch it hard.  Where I am right now?  I am in Nags Head, NC.   The Wright Brothers National Memorial is just two and a half miles from the hotel.  The Atlantic Ocean stretches out from the patio on our room.  I am traveling, again, with […]

Yhdysvaltain arvostettu koripalloturnaus March Madness on saatu päätökseen. North Carolina Tar Heels otti komean finaalivoiton Gonzagasta pistein 71-65. Amerikkalainen yliopistojoukkue nappasi sen historian kuudennen NCAA-mestaruuden aikaisin tiistaina suomen aikaan pelatussa loppuottelussa. Erittäinen tasaisessa loppukamppailussa Gonzaga oli useaan otteseen johdolla, mutta vajaa minuutti ennen loppua North Carolina onnistui karkaamaan pisteissä. Tar Heelsien parhaimmat pistemiehet...

Vihaan työtäni -

I'm actually a socialist. I believe in social ownership and state control of economy, and I also believe that the state should provide all of its citizens some free services like healthcare. I've lived in Finland my whole life and I'm pretty happy about the free services I've had during my life. I mean, my teeth are straight, I have no deadly diseases and althought I've been out of work for long periods, I have not starved to death. I've also never had to live under a bridge, so that's a...

Alkoholipitoisuus: 9,5% Oluen tyyppi: India Pale Ale Alkuperämaa: Tanska Tanskalainen Nørrebro on yksi syksyn 2007 uutuuksista Alkon lippulaivamyymälässä. Toinen näistä, North Bridge Extreme eli NBE, vakiintui sittemmin myös pysyvään valikoimaan. Kyseessä on 0,6l pulloon pakattu, voimakas India Pale Ale -tyylinen olut. NBE on väriltään kirkkaan, punertavan ruskeaa. Sen vaalea vaahto on ohutta ja nopeasti katoavaa. Oluen tuoksu on hyvin intensiivinen ja vahva. Se on tulvillaan...

Rioters have taken to the streets of Paris once more, reminding us of the massive rioting that took place only last fall. The BBC reports: Paris suburb sees fresh rioting The mayor's house is now under police guard following the riotingAbout 100 youths wielding baseball bats have fought French police in a Paris suburb, in the worst such violence since widespread riots in November. The youths threw stones and petrol bombs at police in the town of Montfermeil overnight. They also hurled stones at...

Wow.. it has been a long time since I wrote here last time. Heh, it's a bit funny that I wrote earlier that I will write here maybe twice a month. Huh, that just ain't gonna work. I realized that I am living here on Pulau Penang just an ordinary life. Nothing very special is going to happen that often. So I decided to forget this blog for a while. But now I am back. Why? Probably because I felt like writing something up again. I just felt like gathering my memories here a little bit. The thing...

There have been many library closures in the UK and North America recently. Meanwhile South Korea is opening new ones. What's going on? Are public libraries obsolete? I wrote an article about this topic at Blogcritics and would love it...

According to the south-Swedish newspaper Helsingborgs Dagblad , Sverigedemokraterna is popular among youth , or, as the researcher suggets, it might just be a sign of teenage rebellion. Here are some excerpts from the article: "Every other ninth-grader does not know what party they would vote for in the parliamentary elections, or if they would vote at all, shows the extensive opinion research. At the same time the Sweden Democrats are enjoying great support. They became the most popular party...

Last Friday we warmed up the stage for Dark the Suns at Red Neck . As usual, we started our journey early at Friday afternoon. Kari started early too: As we went north, it started to get colder and colder and when we arrived to Jyväskylä, it was -20 degrees Celsius: Here's our survival kit. There's some muumilimu, jallu, tape, snacks etc ... and a coloring book, which we got as a christmas present (along with jallu and other things) from Maria (thanks!): Jussi took artistic liberty and...

ok i've obviously watched too much gintama... but no, that's not the reason why i haven't updated anything here recently. it's just because i'm lazy. so. damn. lazy. now, when i'm temporarily not *as* lazy, i'm having huuuuuge artzie dump here, yay! some of these are quite alright but i don't feel like submitting to dA, some is just complete crap that i use to fill up space, to make me look like i've actually done something :'D the ladies from stratagem; nea, else, vilja, abril and mia. took a...

From the back: "When this fortress-like country recently opened the door to a crack to foreign investment, a Canadian cartoonist Guy Delisle found himself in its capital of Pyongyang on a work visa for a French film animation company, becoming one of the few Westerners to witness current conditions in the surreal showcase city." Surreal you would describe this comic book, when you read about Guy's experiences. It starts right in the airport, which looks like a modern building. But people wander...

Many are asking what could North Korea possibly gain from an all-out war, a war that'd certainly lead to its own destruction. If North Korea really wants to provoke a war, it will be because of this: ( The Washington Post ) Their military equipment is at least fifty years old, nearing or way past its "best before" date. Soon it will be of little use and North Korea has absolutely no money (or anything for that matter) to obtain new equipment. And, with the Soviet Union long gone, they've got no...

Rautiainen (Prunella modularis) on yleinen Suomessa pesivä varpuslintu. Olen kirjoittanut rautiaisen syysmuutosta Naantalin Sokerinmäellä vuonna 2006 blogissani (3. syyskuuta 2008) . Sieltä voi lukea Rengastustoimiston rautiaisprojektin yleisistä periaatteista sekä muista pyyntiin liittyvistä perusasioista. Perustin elokuussa 2010 rengastuspaikan Kaamastenlahden rannalle vuokramökkini pihapiiriin. Raivasin nuoreen, 6-7 m korkeaan koivuntaimikkoon paikat viidelle 9-metriselle ja yhdelle...

Exactly a year ago today we flew from Berlin to Tenerife to depart on a sailing trip across the Atlantic on the Finnish sail training schooner T/S Helena . The Grid had just reached 10.000 founding members, and it was time to charge batteries before the next big push towards the beta. I had sailed on Helena once before, on a weekend trip in the Turku archipelago . But crossing the Atlantic would be a more interesting adventure. For a month this two-masted tall ship would be our home on the...

Matkailua Kaakkois-Aasiassa -

Hello everybody! It's been now a while I wrote here last time. But I have a very good excuse. I have been busy! This post will be my last one considering my journeys in Southeast Asia. I hope you have liked to read these stories. I can tell you that this time what I spent in SE Asia has been more perfect, more beautiful and totally more exciting that I could have ever imagined. It was great time I had there but now it's time to look forward again. I have started to work in a finnish company and...

Diary of two mexicanhairless dogs Pancho and Chili -

Past week the weather has been on plus Celsius and it has been raining every day, so snow is melting fast.   There is still a lot of snow but what is most important is that roads are ice-free.   For more than a week we have already enjoyed our walks in the snowless paths. Boys are enjoying it as much as we are. Right now we are in Jyväskylä. We have Easter holidays and then our winter vacation. Tomorrow we are continuing from here to Haapavesi and then Oulu. Let’s see how much snow there...

I found delicious North African food in a cosy environment with great hospitality right on Robson St. (at Jervis Street) downtown.  I don't know much about Algerian food, but I loved basically all the dishes that I tried here in two recent visits.  When you walk in, everything about  Fez Café Bistro  is cozy and comforting - the room has big cushioned benches along the side, North African patterns everywhere, tajines and other decorations, and wonderful multi-coloured lights hanging from...

How do you enjoy your coffee/tea? Usually I drink tea - coffee is a speciality for me, and then it should be of good quality and well made. I prefer tea plainly as it is, in winter I tend to use honey, but not much and it must be solid (the running kind of honey seems to be sweeter). I'm up for everything except for black tea or cheap teabags. Green & herbal teas are good. Fruity teas not. When I drink coffee I usually take a cappuccino, or then coffee made in a pan (or a presso-pan) just plain...

My dream came true and I finally learned how to spin on a spinning wheel. It´s not like I haven´t spun before, I used to spin on the drop spindle (since spring 2009 when I learned how to) and have not been able to make yarn on the spinning wheel even if I tried it out many times. Why? I honestly don´t know. Maybe it was the fact that when spinning on the wheel you have to coordinate both feet and hands (and brains!) and that was too much... Anyhow, My first made yarn in the picture above...

Good links golf tends to be expensive. Therefore, have you ever wondered if there exists a links course that 1) is not tucked away in the furthest corner of the country, 2) is in pristine condition all year round, 3) is challenging and quirky, 4) has a really friendly atmosphere and 5) has a green fee of less than 30€? Corballis has it all. Corballis links is literally next door to The Island golf club, in Donabate, just north of Dublin city. It's a public links course, and a really popular...

Carne is Eddie Hackett’s last design, and many consider it to be his best. Hackett himself stated that if ever God intendednany piece of land to be a golf course, it is Carne. And it is truly a dramatic piece of land. The first nine holes of Carne Links were opened in 1992 and the following year a second nine was added. It is hard to believe that golf has been played here for only 15 years. Wonder back in my memories to this links course, the first thing I remember is the nature: the...

Royal Oostende is the second of the Belgian links courses. Hmm. It does not actually sound good to call it "second". It is actually the first by many attributes. Driving South-West from Zoute, you'll find your way to Royal Oostende automatically. The course is located by the main road, right by the sea. If Royal Zoute is somewhere between links and heathland (see entry below), Oostende has a much more a links character, with most holes being clearly links holes, topped up with five holes cut...

By now you must have guessed that I've played quite a bit of links golf around Dublin... This week's entry takes us a few kilometres North of Dublin. You basically take the Belfast road (M1) from the city and cruise on for about 40 minutes. Then you exit and take a road towards the sea and end up in... Termonfeckin! Where else? And what a name for a village! The area has two courses: the well-known County Louth or Baltray (more about this one at a later stage), and its neigbouring Seapoint...

To be honest, I did not have any expectations when I first arrived to the links of Donegal. I had read more about other courses which I was about to play on my journey. Donegal...well, it is Donegal, not County Down or Lahinch. But when you expect nothing, the reward is even bigger. To me Donegal provides a fine example and remainder of how you must see and experience things before making final conclusions. Donegal was opened in late 70's when the club acquired its new links land, outside the...

For a keen links golfer, travelling North from Edinburg into the Kingdom of Fife is like entering Santa Claus' wonderland. So many classic links courses, enough for several trips, and you don't need to play the same courses twice. This is of course a major positive dilemma, as you probably want to play all of them a million times... :)) Lundin and Leven Links are two neighbouring courses that have grown out of one initial course. The mother course was home to two golf clubs and play started at...
