Stormy outside

With a winter storm raging outside, the comfort and warmth of candles and the fire burning in the fireplace are so comforting. News from around Finland talks about tens of thousands of homes without electricity and running around the county during the day clearing fallen trees from phone lines, roads, and houses makes me appreciate the warmth of our home even more.

Finally…

We finally got some snow. Now the big question is will it stay, or will we have another long and muddy late autumn and early winter…

Hoping

As an ex-pat, right now I’m feeling quite annoyed with myself that I didn’t get myself registered as a voter. But then, I’d likely vote in Illinois, which is already going for Obama…

While waiting for the results to come, you can always enjoy some election related music. First, naturally, Alice Cooper for president. And then from one of my favorite bands in my youth, When I’m President.

Halloween

Yes, I know I’m a few days late. My excuse is that I just got the pumpkin yesterday. And compared to the pumpkins I’ve seen in the States this one was dismally small – SB-800 barely fit in it.
