Being Lars Monsen

April 6th, 2012

Having studied the instruction movie made by Lars Monsen on how to make a fire I insisted on not using any help. My mother offered me firelighters, but I did not need any of it. Got a fire, but due to heavy wind the hot dogs was not hot, but only lukewarm.

Burn, burn, burn! Fetched some wood after I had got a small fire, needed a big fire to get the hot dogs hot, but, as mentioned...lukewarm was all I could offer..

"The old are the eldest"

April 1st, 2012

The Norwegian proverb "The old are the eldest" suits the old Mercedes. It has not been started for almost ten years, but today we decided to move it from the new barn to the old one. So we towed it about 100 meters with the tractor, voila, running smoothly. Plenty of smoke, but it is a veteran, so that is quite normal. And hey, if you have been asleep for 10 years, your breath would have been quite bad.

Outside the old barn. Breaks no good, so was a bit nervous when driving in to the barn, but no problemo.

Santa Claus is coming to town

February 23rd, 2012

Hauk, one of the boats belonging to Port of Oslo out sailing this morning, breaking ice close to the Opera. Did not notice it at once, but then suddenly I saw Santa Claus standing there. Funny...

The Joy of Stats

January 4th, 2012

Statistics and such, by no means my best field, but explained by Professor Hans Rosling in this one hour documentary http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00wgq0l (NRK3) it is in fact very interesting and somewhat fun. Like: Can computers analyze our feelings? They can, by harvesting all sentences starting with "I feel" from the vast amount of blogs on the Internet, maybe mine as well?

In one hour people all around the world consumes 7092 tons of bananas...

This again reminds me about Watson, the machine who won Jeopardy

To much spare time?

Music from Bare Egil

December 17th, 2011

I've seen all 6 episodes (one more to go) of Bare Egil from the bands tour this autumn. Both Elin and I really did enjoy the music so I have spent a while this evening listening to the songs and at the same time creating playlists on Youtube.
