iPhone 5 - clock not working

October 19th, 2014

Since I fear being hunted down by the Apple fanboys I know I have to behave when describing what I feel about my iPhone 5c right now which has a clock that does not work (the clock, how hard can it be?) And if you do not believe me, look at this link.

I do actually have my second phone now in just two weeks, both have the same issue, the whole medical history can be found posted here

Snow is in the air

October 16th, 2014

...and I somehow did not feel for commuting with my motorcycle today. I do think it was the last day, will see next week, but almost freezing point and rain...don´t think so.

Burn baby burn!

One match was all I needed

Grand opening at Løken

October 15th, 2014

Yesterday me and Iver went to Løken for the grand opening of the new bus stop, miljøgata (whatever that is in English) and the walkway. My son Iver learned about budgets and HSE, he found it really interesting (me to...). But then he got cake and orange juice, so he was happy.

Spending the night at Grøndalen Søndre Gård

October 13th, 2014

Last weekend we where invited to the wedding of Hjørdis and Svein Magnar. The ceremony took place at Trysil Kirke before we headed up to Grøndalen Søndre Gård

where we got to eat a lot of good food, local beverages (Trysil Aquavit and Trysil Pilsner)

Really enjoyable, we had a lot of fun - a party to remember (and make a blog post about)

October 13th, 2014

A book about rhetoric

Rhetoric is the art of discourse, an art that aims to improve the capability of writers or speakers to inform, persuade, or motivate particular audiences in specific ...(more at Wikipedia)


The book is easy to read and has some very good tips, but I lost it at the end when it started recommending blog engines and such. Apart from that, ok.

About to see the end? Renovation of the outbuilding

October 5th, 2014

About to see the end? Not there yet, but at least one of my biggest concerns are done, the retaining, it is standing!

The never ending story - renovation of the outbuilding

October 5th, 2014

And yet another update, all pictures from last month. All cleaned up, ready to start with the retaining

Having put down the styrofam that goes under the concrete base

Elin is painting, the front loader is the ultimate tool.

Still more painting

The concrete base is ready, easy one

Started doing the formwork, this bit is tricky. The bridge ready for the wheelbarrow.

Formwork ready, looks a bit chaotic.

All ready, sand in the front loader bucket, crushed rock next to it together with the cement bags and finally the cement mixer.

The casting is done, best of all, the formwork did not break, a small thanks to my engineering but most of all luck.

Elin painting some more. and we have started to level the lawn in front.
