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 […]

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...

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. ...

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...

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 […]

Sijoitusblogi -

Uusiutuvaan energiaan sijoittaminen on viime vuosina ollut muodikasta. Erityisesti tuulivoima -ja aurinkoenergiayhtiöt ovat olleet sijoittajien suosiossa. Eikä ihme, nämä kaksi energiantuotantomuotoa kasvattavat nopeimmin osuuttaan globaaleissa päästöjen vähennystalkoissa. Sektoreilta löytyy mielenkiintoisia yrityksiä, mutta itse olen kiinnittänyt huomioni erityisesti tuuliturbiinivalmistaja Vestas Wind Systemsiin. Vestasin osake ei tänä vuonna ole todellakaan ollut sijoittajien...

Nordic Exposure -

What comes to people's minds when they hear about Finland? I don't know, but if they can place it on the map, I guess they think it's so far up North it must be awfully cold all the time, there's loads of snow and ice bears roam the streets of Helsinki. Actually, it isn't as nice as that. Ice bears would perk up the picture (I know they are deadly beasts but they're also so cute, aren't they?). The truth about Helsinki in January is that it's bleak, wet, windy and chilly. The rest of the...

I noticed some FB updates of some BC friends going to Amsterdam that they were having some major delays. The flight delays due to the volcanic activity in Iceland, and it turns out it is covered pretty well on the European medias (of which BBC kind of should be most neutral). US medias over here? I don't feel like turning the TV on (it just feels so wrong during the day). Newspapers - the only ones on analog paper I occasionally get would be The Onion and even that maybe once a week. So, my...

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...

Grendel Diary -

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...

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...

Links Golf Society -

There are many theories about where golf was born. It's widely accepted that the modern game was developed and popularised by the Scots, but it is often claimed that the initial roots of the game can be traced to continental Europe. For example the Dutch game of "kolven" involved crooked wooden sticks and balls, but it was still very far from our game. Anyway, why am I saying all this? Probably just to highlight that, despite that the history of our game is attributed to Scotland and the fact...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Roadside Burger Blog -

This was my fourth and last burger with a journalist from Helsingin Sanomat. He's making a story about hamburgers and I was interviewed for the article while tasting several burgers. In the 90's there were three big burger chains in Finland - McDonalds, Carrols and Hesburger. Two of these were original US based burger chains. You know the McDonals but also Carrols originally came to Finland as a franchise from the United States. Carrols Corporation was found in Syracusa NY, and during the 60's...

Viikonlopun FA Cupin ottelussa tapahtui ikävä asia. Kansallisen cup-kilpailun 6. kierroksella, White Hart Lanella pelatussa iltaottelussa, Boltonin pelaaja Fabrice Muamba lyhistyi maahan. Muamba sai sydänkohtauksen kesken ottelun. Boltonin keskikenttäpelaaja vietiin Lontoon Chest Hospitaliin. Katsomossa sattui olemaan paikalla sydänspesialisti, joka ohjasi lääkintähenkilökunnan & ensihoitajat viemään Fabrice Muamban edellä mainittuun sairaalaan. North Middlesexin sairaala olisi...

Pohjoisen kuningas...  Se on ainut asia mikä mulle tulee mieleen näitä kuvia katsoessa. Miten upea tuo hevonen onkaan! Pellolle nouseva sumu loi maagisen kuvaustaustan. Aurinko oli jo laskenut ja ISO-arvo piti nostaa yli 3000 mikä vuorostaan aiheutti kuviin melkoista rakeisuutta, mutta nämä ovat silti yksiä lempikuviani. En ole ratsastanut Rinkillä viime sunnuntain ilmalennon jälkeen. Rink päätti kokeilla lyhyttä uraansa rodeohevosena ja itse päädyin sairaalan päivystykseen...

Heterowife-swapping and orgies are so 2005. If you want real action, you need to get down to the UK's hardest underground gay sex clubs. Warning: this ain't pretty... When you're looking for the most extreme sex club in the country, when do you call off the search? After the HIV+ barebacking night? When someone starts drinking a stranger's piss for fun? Or do you wait until a man's screams are drowning out the music at a fisting night? Over the last couple of months, many of you have responded...

Since I seem to be unable to write anything with actual content here, I'll just fill this 1. What music am I listening just now or listened to most recently? I listened Rimfaxe by Gjallarhorn yesterday on my way to town and back. It was pretty good. Although I guess I liked the previous albums more. They're also pretty good live. 2. What music did I buy most recently? I bought the intro music to North by Northwest by Bernard Herrmann. I was watching Prison Break and in it this guy goes running...

There's a plenty to choose from if you want to ride hills around Dublin. Depending on where you stay, you might ride the Eastern side of Wicklow Mountains, or going first to Blessington and reach the mountains from there. My first ride  in Ireland started from Tallaght. I was about to do a social ride and knew that the weather would change many times, so I had my backpack and Nikon D750 camera too. About 5 kg on my shoulders which actually didn't bother me at all during the ride. Finding a way...
