Wilfred A. Peterson: “The secret of greatness is simple: do better work than any other man in your field – and keep on doing it.”


Gratulerer med dagen Norge!

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

Today, May 17 (‘syttende mai’) Norway celebrates its Constitution; a nationwide party day, so GRATULERER MED DAGEN Norge (Congratulations Norway)!!

But, it is windy, rainy and just +4C (brrr!) so most of the needed/wanted ingredients for a great outdoor party are unfortunately somewhere else. 🙁 Oh well, we will make the best out of it; we just came back from the traditional ‘barnetoget’ (Childrens’ Parade) in the village centre in which Misha and his kindergarten friends participated, and are about to go to Oslo for a traditional norwegian shrimp dinner in Cafe Amsterdam yummm.

As every year, it is really nice to see everyone dressed up (and holding a Norwegian flag in hand)…ha, the Vikings won’t be stopped by some shitty weather on their national day, woohoo! 🙂
