The plum

September 24th, 2016

And yes, it is "the plum", the single, one and only we got this year. Last year, so much plums that the branches snapped, this year - only one...

Why move, just drive around

Why bother move the forage harvester when you can drive around?

Basteheia Rundt 2016

September 17th, 2016

Basteheia Rundt today together with friends and family, nice weather, exhausting and fun. I really enjoy being able to run again after many years with legs not working.

Warm evening with a lot of fog

September 15th, 2016

Was out late yesteday evening riding my bike. Was well dressed, but it was no need. Warm and moist, many places the fog was "as thick as porrige" as we say in Norway. Had to try to take some pictures, but ... cell phone camera...not the best.

Tough day at work

September 15th, 2016

Someone has had a tough day at work for sure. Saw this on Sunday, was out finding "stølper", at the most remote location, that is Mangen. Suddenly I saw an excavator and something strange behind it. Turned out to be yet another excavator, deep down in the bog.

Sightseeing in Fredrikstad

September 11th, 2016

Yesterday we got a guided tour of the fortified town of Fredrikstad, interesting and a lot fun as well, the commander in chief (the guide) had many good stories.

Some of the soliders. This weekend was packed with various cultural events in Fredrikstad, so I guess that was why the soliders had to dress up

Tom Mathisen live in Fredrikstad

September 11th, 2016

Friday evening me and a bunch of my colleagues went to see the Tom Mathisen show. Since I know many of the songs from Prima Vera very well it was fun, but I was also suprised by the amount of songs I did not know, such as "Paven på vannski" and "Fluer har ikke fjær".

Wild animals in Fredrikstad

September 11th, 2016

Two days ago I had some spare time when me and the rest of my colleagues arrived in Fredrikstad, so I took a quick run. Could have been the last thing that I did, I must admit that I was not aware of all the wild animals - good thing they stood still so that I could take a picture of them

Found this stairs, since the steps was just really iron rods it was really hard to see where to set the foot down when walking (run) up and even worse down.

Still safe?

September 11th, 2016

This package of kefir has been forgotten for some time in the fridge, usually not really worried about the date, but it started to get a bit "blown up"

...and actually, yesterday it almost bursted...that was really the deatch sentence.

Marlow Grand Prix 2016

September 11th, 2016

Last Saturday I attended Marlow Grand Prix - a race close to home, so I just had to get on the bike and in 15 minutes I was at the start. Fun, good training, as always I would wish that I could do it faster, but then I need to be better prepared - so I leave that for next year. What I also need to do before next year is to buy many pairs of new socks. I got caught by the style police - and if the style police have had the right to arrest without a warrant I would have been arrested for having to short socks. To my defence it was ok years ago, so I just said that I'm really so 2008'ish (believeing that it is still called Shimano LX, but I'm wrong it is called Shimano 540 ... or something...)

Preparing for winter

September 11th, 2016

Actually this was last Saturday, got an early start and decided that we most likely won't be spending to much time on the terrace anymore this year.

Cleaning the terrace, I really hate fungus and moss...

Did spray the moss with chemicals a couple of weeks ago, now washing most of it away. Will have to repeat the process

Bought myself a Magicshine MS-660 multi with rear light and remote control last week. So now no excuse for not training outdoors in the warm autumn evenings

Now it's gone

September 1st, 2016

Eight years after we bought our first Mondeo it's now gone. The Mondeo was dead, long live the new Mondeo. And for the record, not the one to the right ...
