I think this looks funny.

It's from our office )
I forgot to post about Monday night's fermented herring party. I managed to find the house. One of my choir mates lives next to it, and she bought it some time ago (it seems that either she bought it, or some jerk from Stockholm did, and the sellers preferred her. From what she said he really sounded like a jerk...).

First we got a look at the barn -- and the privy. Then we were shown into the house: a traditional layout with a hall in the middle and kitchen and chamber to the side. Lots of old furniture. A stuffed fox. Heated by firewood. Actually very warm. Gorgeous view.

Yes, I ate my two fish. They went down with a lot of potatoes and flat bread.

M bought us a couple of head torches. They turned out to work very well when I tried mine on a short walk. It shows a lot more ground than a handheld torch, and it can be angled up or down.

There'll be plenty of opportunity to use it -- the evenings are still dark.
We finally got snow. There's about two decimetres of it, and since the temperature is at fifteen below zero, it's likely to stay for a while.

I feed the birds.

The other day there was something very odd by the roadside: a helicopter flailing about in the air. I had to slow down so I could see what was going on. It was beating snow from the trees along the road, and more importantly, I suppose: along the power line. I knew they do that, to keep the branches off the cable, but I have never seen it before.

That's a problem they don't have in Scania.
