Seen at the food shop...

Seen at the food shop...

We have plenty of news about Trump and American politics.
These days we have too much going on with Norwegian politics.
We might have some BIG changes tomorrow?

Antique market this weekend.

One of the things I have been doing this weekend was visiting an antique market
Here are two old posters that were for sale.
The weather has been good, cold and sunny.

Pine trees.

A sunny and cold winter weekend.
With a BIG dog at home there is no excuse for not getting up and out, even when it is -5C.

New film.

I will never forget what happened here in Norway on July 22. 2011
69 people lost their lives on the island. Total 77 people.
A Norwegian man had planned and carried out these two evil attacks by himself.

This week a new Norwegian film had it's premier, and the film is about what happened at UTØYA, the island where so many young people lost their lives.

People are saying that this is a strong film.

I have not seen it. I guess the intense marketing, with posters perhaps in all bus shelters, will make this a film that many will go and see.

Well done!

These two guys have been doing a good job on making a wooden path, so it will be easier to reach the beach for those who are out with a weal chair or a pram.

Beach life

This is Elisabeth Nessler and Bjørn Sola together with their two dogs.
Not a common thing to see, a Norwegian guy wearing a kilt (on yet another snowy day!)
He told me that he actually had five kilts...
So perhaps he will inspire more Norwegian men to dress the same way?
Great to see a man who is man enough to dress just the way HE likes.

Together with a good friend I was out walking on the beach, before celebrating "International Women's Day" with some nice food at the hotel on the beach.

Have a nice evening, everyone!

Norwegian food.

Today I had an interesting chat with one of the guys promoting and selling sea products outside a local shop. Products from a small company at Lista ( south Norway.) They were heading north towards the Stavanger area. He told me that they wanted to buy more cars and expand the sale even out of Norway.

I heard about the idea... from farm to fork,  and yes; it is based in Stavanger and have been doing so since 2008.

Good luck!
Nice to meet some enthusiasts!

HAVANA magasinet.

It is an old logo, and the company is still selling all what smokers need.
But advertising is not done the same way anymore.
It is actually the oldest shop in Norway selling tobacco etc.
The previous owners great grandfather started the business back in 1899.
