After a morning session at the fitness centre I discovered that the sky was blue and the sun was shining. I went for a little walk and discovered that it was possible to see through the windows at the top floor at the Viking Stadium ..... todays photo.
The local football club, had until recently a German trainer, who will no longer work the next two years of his contract. I hear people all over discussing the situation, but I don`t have an opinion. But! one thing I know; Football is BIG business.

This is potato dumplings, and depending on where in Norway we live, we have 3 different names for this dish.
"Komler", as we call it in Stavanger is served with lamb meat and/or sausage, together with mashed turnip. “Komler” are made of raw potatoes.
My late grandmother who lived further north, always called them “Klubb”
And in and around Bergen (Norways second biggest city) they call them “Raspeball”

Yesterday, late Saturday evening, I had the pleasure of listening to some great music, in a great atmosphere at what was a fantastic concert at “Folken”.
“Maijazz” and “Numusic” were proud to have got Tony Allen, the 70 year young legendary drummer together with his 7-person orchestra to come to Stavanger!
Last summer they launched the album, ”Secret Agent”. This is music with a mixture of jazz, funk, blues, reggae and rock..... Wonderful, and what could be better on a chilly autumn evening than to go and enjoy this warm music, dance or at least feel the music!

Todays shot is from the annual "PWC-Stavanger Arts and Crafts fair" which is on today and tomorrow. It is a huge event!
This photo is showing less than half of the area, where creative people sell things they have made. I am always impressed. This year I bought a few presents, and two things to myself. Luckily it was not as crowded as it has sometimes been.
PWC was founded in September 1970, and was than called the Petroleum Wives Club,
a club only open for women whose husbands were in the oil industry.
Now the club is open to everyone who would like to join, and the club is re-named
“People Who Connect”. They have several meetings and activities all year around.
