gone so young

The young fellow who won, in 2004, the home equivalent of american idol with this song apparently died today. He would have been 24 on the 13th next month.

He had mucoviscidosis.

MM and the boat

I already mentioned MM and the boat he wanted to buy, only not alone. Here it is. It arrived on site, apparently rather discreetly (since it'll remain for some time in a warehouse  that's hardly used).

The story continues…

relevance in advertisement

Like expressed in a post made earlier this month, sometime I have the feeling those in charge of publicity really lack sense of reality.


I knew when I changed e-mail address that I'd expose myself to having my e-mails scrutinized and relevant publicity displayed in accordance.

Every now and then I do pay a little attention to what's on the right hand side but frequently fail to see relevance in any of their links.

Adsense huh!?

to be less stubborn and more pragmatic

I guess I'll remain the son that knows better than parents ever since I was adolescent.

Mum sent me an e-mail today. She said she had voted for Sarko “the only one that can straighten things out and take care of the debt”.

She got my answer, hopefully in her teeth. I guess from this crap she gave me at least she heard what that dwarf kept hammering during the campaign.

I could strangle her. There are a couple of streaks in people that aggravate me and stubbornness is one of them.

Who in the hell said things needed to be straightened out, since when does she care about this anyway and does she know Japan also has an enormous debt?

The problem is she cannot afford to have Sarko as president. Unlike her boyfriend who's well off and could make it without his retirement pension she just can't.
Widow, mother of 3, worked for, what, 12 years she's among the privileged few. She's the very example the idiot she voted for is eager to cut pensions of and trim retirement plans.

That boyfriend of hers has been a bad influence ever since she dated him. He's nice with her and everything but boy is he stupid.

Tuplapotku potkupyörä / potkulauta

I don't think I have ever posted about Tuplapotku.

I really had to come here to discover something that's probably unique in its kind.

Here they care greatly about elderly population (compared to home where we just wait for heat waves to kill them by the thousand).

It's not uncommon to see white heads  people sporting white hair going down (relatively small) hill like crazy on these, what, scooters. They even browse in malls on (in?) them.

They're rather expensive but, given the extra mobility and autonomy they allow, definitely worth it.
