I've been active today.
First I used the high-pressure hose to clean the tarmac outside our main entrance because it was covered with moss. You can see the stripes on the tarmac after the water jetting.
Then, after we have had a lot of visitors today I went out and painted the mounting covering the cable tv cables.
I finished up the work today with moving the lawn for the first time this year. Here you see Elin and Anders going out for a walk over the mowed lawn.
For those of you that are able to understand Norwegian, can you please help me explain this review of the new DVD-release of the Swedish movie "Du levande" . The review is from the latest issue of Ny Tid
50 stiliserte øyeblikk som beskriver det svenske folkehemmet. 50 utforskninger av affektene som dominerer samtiden: Tragikomikk som ikke evner å bli til melankoli fordi det ikke finnes noen underliggende mening som kan gi den grunnleggende nihilismen et anstrøk av alvor. Roy Andersen Du levande tar tråden videre fra Sanger fra andre etasje og viser at film i ytterste grad kan være kunst med filosofisk og kritisk dybde.
The plan today was to join Lille40 (Lillehammer - Oslo 40 km/h average), but since I had misplaced my bike pump I was about 30 seconds to late to be able to join them. I saw they started out from Hydro just when I got on top of the hill, but I was to far away from them to shout, and when I got to the next roundabout I turned left where they had turned right. So I ended up going by myself to Roa and then to Maura, the same route as a couple of weeks ago. 140 kilometers all in all in about 5 hours, must admit that my legs was still hurting after Enebakk Rundt on thursday.
On my way over the hill between Roa and Maura this sign was placed on the road. Luckily the water had withdrawn from the road so no need for me to turn around. I read this article yesterday so I knew that there would be a slight chance for it...

My team and I managed to do Enebakk Rundt almost as fast as we had hoped for. 2.05.44 is the official time for our team, 2.04 was our goal, but if we give us some slack due to the weather I would say that we managed!

We watched the first episode sent on Norwegian tv today with the Omid Djalili-show. That, I must say, was a breath of fresh air! Sign me up next week for the next episode...
New version of B2 released today, just a minor upgrade which either you as a end user of my blog or I as an administrator/publisher will notice much of. But, always best to stay on top!
Today we had the yearly event of voluntary communal work in our housing cooperative. Not to much to do this year, but then Anne-Lise, or neighbor, said that she wanted to get rid of a large tree. As it turned our, I had the chainsaw and protection gear in the car, so after the neighbors had said ok I started doing my work. Note that I without 5 years of forester training school did not hurt anyone :-D
