Life! C'est pas beautiful, ça? -

I made a shocking discovery: our apartment has no corners. Bebecito is approaching the Terrible Two's and the desperate parents are eager to set some limits, well, to the obvious: NO to digging garbage, NO to climbing the bookshelf, NO to playing with toilet water, NO to touching hot stove. The most used and efficient approach seems to be the Time Out method: when behaving badly the child is taken to a designated corner for the appropriate duration to his age (which in our case would be up to...

Links Golf Society -

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...

Links Golf Society -

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...

Links Golf Society -

My first visit to Royal County Down in 1999 changed my attitude towards golf and golf courses. I had visited many links courses before, but this one was something quite different. At that trip I was covering The Amateur Championship for a magazine, and there was of course no chance to play the links during the tournament. But as I walked the course for three days, I knew that I had to come back one day. Finally in autumn 2006 I came to Newcastle, County Down, in Northern Ireland for the second...

Gagan ( From My Lil Window) -

Ok, I have to say, Nokia has been screwing around with device names. It takes ages to have that vocabulary in your brain. So when your friend says, hei have you checked out how slim is that Nokia 6500 classic? Obviously your answer will be "wait a sec.. what device was that?" and your friends starts explaing, "you know, the one which looks like.... " How boring could those numbers be? 6500, 3230, bla bla !! As if those numbers meant anything! The numbers are as random as it could get! Okay, if...

Hieman on vierähtänyt aikaa nyt siitä, kun edellinen teksti tänne laitettiin. Syy siihen miksi näin  on käynyt? No ehkä se on laiskuus, muistamattomuus tai joku muu vastaava tekosyy. Nyt on tarkoitus tämä jälleen eloon saattaa uusien mielenkiintoisten aiheiden kera ( ainakin kirjoittajien mielestä mielenkiintoisten ).  Tällä kertaa ajattelin hieman kartoittaa jazz-innostustani, joka on on tässä viimeisen vuoden aikana noussut esiin. Aikaisemmin en tästä musiikista niin...

Life! C'est pas beautiful, ça? -

Anopin visiitti on puolivälissä; 3 viikkoa takana - toinen mokoma vielä edessäpäin. Kolmion seinät venyy ja paukkuu, miniän ja anopin välit venyy ja paukkuu, ulkona pakkanen paukkuu eikä meksikolaiset uskalla nokkaansa ulos laittaa. Anopilla on tiskausriippuvuus. Saatiin vihdoin astianpesukone tähän huusholliin mutta anoppi tiskaa salaa: livahtaa keittiöön, putsaa kipon kerrallaan eikä usko vaikka miniä yrittää hätyytellä että kyllä se kone pesee. Anoppi tiskaa, tiskaa...

Olen muuttanut - sekä blogin osoitetta että vähän sisältöä :) Lennun tekeleet jää tähän, en siirrä näitä kirjoituksia, mutta en myöskään poista niitä. Lämpimästi tervetuloa nurkkaani ! ***** I've moved my blog. You are very welcome to read and comment! However, I will write mostly in Finnish, as most of my readers seem to be Finnish and writing in two languages is so much more work :) I will continue writing about my stitching, but also about my other hobbies like reading.

Riikka's Green Gables -

Greta and Grace have a bedroom loaded with different items. Their grandpa had made the furniture, and the girls painted them themselves. The suitcase is a secondhand from a flea market. Greta made the bedding herself. Gretan ja Gracen makuuhuone on täynnä kaikenlaista tavaraa. Heidän isoisänsä on tehnyt huonekalut ja tytöt maalasivat ne ihan itse. Matkalaukku on ostettu käytettynä kirpputorilta. Greta teki sängyn petaukset ihan itse. In the corner there are Greta's yarn-basket and...

From the corner of the world -

Today I have been busy with observing people. That's actually a fun thing to do. Probably I have done it more than I know because I when I was leaning out of my kitchen window this morning after my morning cup of tea, I realised that I even know where some passer-bys live!? Scary, huh? A tanned man in black clothes was walking in the street with his small shopping bag, probably heading towards the store that had just opened for the day. He lives on the corner opposite our house - I know it...

Another image from trip to Utö ... This time one planetary nebula (Messier 27), as wide angle image. It is visible in image upper left corner, as green dot. Difficult imaging indeed, conditions were windy and I had to struggle keeping my tripod on the ground. Image taken with Nikon D200, Nikkor AF-S G 50mm, at f/1.4, single 8s exposure at ISO2500. Unfortunately sensor produces lot of noise :-(

We have a visitor. His name is Kassu and the happy owner of him is Tuula, who's living in the building next to us. She went to help her daughter with moving, so we eagerly welcomed Kassu to stay a couple of days with us. He's already taken over this place by sleeping in every corner of this flat! He also came to wake me up at 5am, 6am, 7am and finally at 8am I woke and gave up. He also escaped once from the balcony, but he's a shy boy and was waiting for us to carry him inside just outside the...

Last summer I was enjoying my ice-cream in a hot summer day in Punavuori district. I sat on my longboard in the corner of two big streets and just let people pass me by. Suddenly someone came to me and asked if I was a local in Helsinki. He was from London and had started this art project about locals and tourists in various cities around the world. Maybe I'd be interested to take part? Hell yes! Pics by me in Local vs Tourist I was handed a disposable camera, an envelope with an address and...

Roadside Burger Blog -

Couple of days ago my friend pointed me a little grill kiosk which was supposed to serve excellent burgers. We needed to pick up a piece of countertop from Ikea and this little burger grill was located only one minute drive from Ikea. So after we got our countertop we stopped for burger at Hölmölä Burger Grill. The place looked like a typical Finnish grill kiosk. It also seemed to be a trucker paradise since it's located near a highway crossing and four trucks were parked by the road. In a...

Roadside Burger Blog -

This was my second 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. Harrin nakki (Harri's Hotdog) is a typical Finnish grill kiosk. A little booth standing in the corner of local park in the middle of Helsinki. Back in the days the architecture varied from trailers to wooden booths but the city of Helsinki standardized the outlook of these kiosks a few years back. This particular kiosk has...

Couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a journalist from Helsingin Sanomat, which is the largest subcription based newspaper in the Nordic region. Helsingin Sanomat offers readers a weekly supplement NYT which is delivered as insert to the newspaper. The NYT supplement is a weekly guide to entertainment and the leading proponent of leisure-time activities in the Helsinki metropolitan area. They had seen my blog and they had an idea to make a story about burgers. I was asked to join a journalist...

I am hot, sweaty, and tired having just speed-walked down the road, round the corner down the road, and round another corner to the nearest bus-stop, half a mile away from my work place. It's 8am in the morning and across the road from me the CCTV camera fixed a-top a well known brand name bank, is swivelling around on its pivot like it's on meth or crack. Anyway, standing nearby me is a young woman chatting to another young woman and they're both surrounded by seven children,and the...

Kesä on jo alkanut, vaikka kalenterissa ollaankin vasta toukokuussa. Aurinkoa ja lämmintä piisaa. Niinpä onkin päänupille ja muullekin kropalle hyödyllistä viettää aikaa ulkona. Itse kuulun niihin ihmisiin, jotka ovat innostuneet käyttämään mittareita kävellessä ja pyöräillessä. Maastopyöräni ohjaustangossa on matka-nopeus -mittari ja ranteessani aktiivisuusranneke, jonka hankin muutama kuukausi sitten. Lisää tietoa Kunto Plus -lehti 3-2018 kertoo sivulla 60 seuraavaa...

It’s a sauna state of mind.  Seuraavaksi itseoikeutetusti  suomalainen Sisu :  The feeling of perseverance.

I seem to post on four month intervals now (even my sister asked if I'm ever going to blog again). Funny, but the less you blog the more difficult it gets. The longer the blog-break, the heavier the responsibility of writing something worth reading is - and I haven't felt like anything I have to say lately is worth reading, if I have anything to say at all. I haven't even read that many blogs, or at least not as many as I used to, and I have a feeling I've kind of dropped out of the...

Sarah Lotz.  The Three . Pikkuisen hajanainen trilleri lähtee upeasta alkuasetelmasta, miksaa uskontoa, politiikkaa ja kolmansia ulottuvuuksia, ja päättyy lievään lässähdykseen.

Berlin is very multicultural. It´s very common for f ex turkish people to run an italian restaurant. What I did not have experienced before was Sushi by turks. This small restaurant is just around the corner of my home. I was a bit hesitating at the entrance as I saw this turkish sushi cook, since I was looking for a great sushi meal. Prejudices were wrong and the snack was delicious! And the cook entertained me the whole time... If I had wanted or not.
