Colours & lights.

I NEED colours & lights this time of year!

Looks beautiful in town now!

This is from the colourful little road Øvre Holmegate,
nicknamed FARGEGATEN (colour street)

The tower at Ullandhaug.

Just a cold, grey and wet day!
This is the tower at Ullandhaug, decorated for Christmas.

After the storm.

Sørmarka today.
There were some signs from the STORM. (URD)

Tuesday 27 December 2016

Father Christmas looks pretty exhausted....

Perhaps a little too much to drink???
Or maybe it was the STORM that put him out of action??

Monday 26 December 2016

URD,- the extreme weather is on it's way...

We have been out for a walk, but now it is best to stay inside....
Strong winds, a bit of hail in the air and on the ground.
We are asked to put things away so loose items will not fly off into the air.

URD, the extreme weather is on it's way!

What will happen with the Christmas trees outside the pub "The Irishman"???

At home it is time for more Christmas food, and if the weather is too bad tonight, our guests might have to stay over. No problem.

Have a nice Boxing Day wherever you are!

It is X-mas time.

Wherever you are; have a nice Christmas!

Crazy car.

We have had a tiny bit of sunshine, but mostly it has been pouring down with lots of rain today!
My car has been so dirty that it has been embarrassing, but when I saw this I realised that there are much stranger cars to look at out on the road. (Wish I had seen the driver. He or she must have a crazy sense of humour.)

Maybe I will translate what is written on the car, if nobody figures it out via google translate.

No it is not me, nor do we have a cat.

This is Wivek Linjordet,
our dog's vet who we (including our dog) are so pleased about.

Yesterday she opened her own veterinary - clinic GODE VENNER DYREKLINIKK at Klepp, south of Stavanger. This place is also close to Sandnes, Bryne and Sola.
We the customers, were invited for the official opening and had an interesting guided tour around the clinic.

I was impressed about the clinic and all the surgery she can actually do, even complicated dental work! She has taken further education in that field in Luxembourg.

Best of luck, Wivek!!

It was an OPEN DAY at the museums today.
Here is a glimpse from the Norwegian Petroleum Museum.

Seen in a restaurant

Normally I really don't like animal heads on walls, but if you see this one in a restaurant, you are lucky enough to be in one of the better restaurants in town, and to have the opportunity to enjoy very nice food and wine.

Friday 16 December 2016


This is a little narrow road, nicknamed LYSLØYPÅ, a place where you will find restaurants, cafes, bars and pubs. It is very busy in the evenings, and perhaps even more now when it is time for Chrismas drinks &

Gingerbread houses 2016

The annual event with the city made out of gingerbread, can be seen at The Culturehouse.
This looked like it was made by an architect with eyes for details. Very well done!!
The label said: The house at Våland, made
by Elin Lundegård from Hundvåg.

Christmas or not...

It is soon Christmas time, and here you see some children waiting to visit the Cathedral.
Today was a perfect day to take a trip in to town. Cold but sunny.

It is up to the parents to say yes or no for their children to attend a church service before Christmas.

Some schools in Stavanger as well as other places in Norway have decided not to use the word Christmas, and instead name it a December event, where they sing the songs but words as Christmas/ Father Christmas have been changed to something "neutral".

Probably difficult to be a teacher and talk about Christmas without using the word....

I guess the discussion will continue also after Christmas this year....

Take a look at this :

The little man on the corner....

Do you see the little man on the corner?

A mural.

I guess street art can bring out some feelings/emotions (?)

Sunday 11 December 2016

The Lithuanian Artist Ernest Zacharevic has his art on this bus. he is one of several artists who are represented via Nuart. Looks bright and more fun than "just the green colour."

Løye fra London.

"Løye fra London" directly translated "Fun from London,"
was the title of yesterdays English Comedy Evening at KINOKINO in Sandnes.

(Our neighbouring city south of Stavanger, only 17 minutes away by train.)

Here you see Dana Alexander in action.
An evening with English speaking stand-up comedians and an audience from several European countries.

I have been told that there will be more  "Fun from London" sessions in the spring of 2017.

A bit of RED.

December is a dark month and we need colours and light!
This woman had added a bit of RED and she looked so cute!
Probably the cutest post woman I have ever seen!
Even her nails matched.

Nice meeting you!

Ready for Christmas?

This is work in progress.
The huge father Christmas might be put somewhere else?
The place has become some sort of a landmark in Stavanger.
Some people find it tacky, some LOVE it.

She is busy.

She is one of several women, who are in Norway selling their knitted products.
Quite impressive what she has made.
If you don't have cash it is not a problem, - always a "mini bank" nearby.

Atlantic Hall

Atlantic Hall is part of the Radisson BLU Atlantic hotel, and the hotel is now closed for customers during the renovation work. It will be very different when it opens for business again.

The Atlantic Hall has hosted so many BIG events, and most people over 50 have probably been there more than once.

Monday 21 November 2016

A mural outside fairly new flats.

A mural perhaps part of NUART or just contemporary art, -seen at what we call Østre Bydel, a part of Stavanger that has been turned into an urban and trendy area.

Nice design.

I really like the design of this bench at the old market place.
