And at the time the water in the Oslo Fjord starts to get thicker is a good time to start sleeping under sheep skin rugs ;-)

Helt OT, men...

spør deg siden du er "innfødt" - har du sett den nye boka "Storm ved Stadt"? I så fall - er den noe bra? Hva handler den om - sånn med bare store, fine bilder??

Men eg begynner å lure på om eg skal granske slekta mi å finne ut om eg verkeleg er norsk, for her er det -2 og eg har funne fram lange armar for lenge sida. Fryser gjer eg og.
