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!

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 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 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" 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.
