It´s nice to see how good isolation I have under the roof. The snow stays even if I get thirty degrees ( 86F) on the upper floor (wich happens now and again when I don´t stop in time :-) ).

Today I could write a lot about the Swedish governement, but I don´t want to bore You so I wont. But it seemes as if SAAB is close to bankruptcy and soon to be history. They say that ten thousand people will be without work because of that in Trollhättan. Not only those from the car factory of course, because it´s a small factory. But all small industries that is dependent of SAAB will also have to close.

This time it´s not fog that makes the mountine dissapere.
Yesterday evening I saw a documentary about a women from Main, Ann Murray Paige, that had gotten brestcancer and her fight to beat it. If You get a chance to see it, do so. It was really interesting. One of my best friends died of that. She was the one that got me to move from Gotheburg to the countryside and she is, indirectly :-), the reason that I have three big black dogs :-) She was a wonderful woman that loved life, but lost. Dispite being sick of the treatment, always joked and laughed. Sometimes I miss her so much. So please You women out there, check Your self! It´s a nasty way to go.

If You want to read a fantastic blog You should read “GeeGee´s Graffiti”. But I´m not sure we should call this fantastic blog a blog, because it´s so much more! I think we should call it a novel. Read it, You wount be dissapointed I promise!

Well the snow is falling outside and they have promised that it will get a bit warmer again. Not a minute too sonn I say. Now I´m only longing and hoping for an early spring. I want to get out barefoot and feel the grass under my feet. I want to get out in the garden and get rid of the weed and dig in the soil. and I want to listen to the birds in the trees singing their spring songs. But until then I´m happy for the silver medal we got in biathlon today :-)
have a nice day now!

One of those people that lived in my house before bred pheasants in these cages. Then he releesed them just to hunt them again in season. Wonder why he bother releasing them at all? That is the reason we have a lot of pheasants around the village :-)

The biggest company in my hometown is a sub-supplier to SAAB and Volvo. They have already got rid of almost half the staff, and if SAAB closes down, more people will have to go.
When will this financial crisis end? It just keeps getting worse...

I long for spring now, just as you, but in the same time it's so nice to have a real winter with snow and cold. So I think I will keep enjoying it for as long as it lasts =)

Congratulations on the metal!!! I know you follow that closely and you sounded so pleased. I know how you feel about wanting to get outside again. It's funny how we suddenly realize it is here..SPRINGTIME has arrived. I cannot wait to see your pictures when the leaves are turning green..all that newleaf pale green..and almost will no longer be able to see into the forest..we will be gazing UPON it instead. :) How fun it will be to watch it all turn. Don't miss a moment..ok? We don't get to experience that very much in Southern am counting on you! :):)

Hi Helen!
here it´s been colder and snowier for a longer period than it has down south, so I´m pretty tired of it now :-) Let spring come and away with the snow! :-)
