The kid who wrote this answer to a test question must LOVE to dance! Of course he/she could also have been ‘brainwashed’ by his parents or he/she just saw one of the Madagascar movies! :)

For those of you who don’t understand the answer, check out the YouTube video below and dance to it like we all used to do, way back in the 90’s…I like to MOVE IT! :)

Time To Say Goodbye

March 26th, 2015 on 23:41

This performance of the Andrea Bocelli & Sarah Brightman song ‘Time to say Goodbye’ by Solomia, a 13 year old girl participating in the German version The Voice Kids, just brings me to tears…WoW!!!!

(yes, she *is* only 13 years old, I can’t believe it!)

Hugh Macleod: “Your idea doesn’t have to be big. It just has to be yours alone. The more the idea is yours alone, the more freedom you have to do something really amazing. The more amazing, the more people will click with your idea. The more people click with your idea, the more it will change the world.”

 

The coolest bus…is Danish?! :)

Public transport is by definition not cool ;) , the Danes though have succeeded in adding some coolness to public transport. ‘Some’ coolness?? Well, watch the Youtube video below and you will agree; this is *the* most epic ad for public transportation ever created! I guess you too will be practicing to say “I am cool” in Danish. (“Jeg er cool.” :) )

‘Other women’ are probably *the* #1 cause for arguments (/fights) between men and women in relationships…check out the Youtube video below in which Dennis Prager of Prager University explains and debunks this. Yes, men and women *are* different, there is nothing new with that and surely nothing to worry about!

Hmm, now only hope that women will understand it!! :)

(perhaps Dennis Prager should have been Denise Prager?! :) )

Northern Lights in Oslo last night!

March 18th, 2015 on 17:03

The Northern Lights are just pure magic in the sky and last night was the first time since I moved to Norway that I witnessed it conveniently at home!

At first it looks like some shady clouds are closing in from the northern horizon, then these ‘clouds’ start to move from left to right, they move faster and faster, towards an incredible speed as if a t.l. tries to light up, and then you realise; hey, these are no clouds…something magical is happening in the sky…those ‘clouds’ are actually somewhat greenish instead of hazy white…the flares are everywhere, there, there *and* there…left, right, directly above me and even more at the horizon…Northern Lights mannnn, I love it! Unfortunately they were a tad weak, at least too weak to be captured on my iPhone (despite a special camera app allowing for a long shutter time)…so, less spectacular and far from the intensity that I experienced last year, but hey, I got a falling star as a bonus so no complains here, ha!

Check out the Youtube video below which was taken (not by me) in Oslo yesterday:
