My childhood outhouse

Situated in Solør, in the south-east of Norway. Magazine clips on the inside walls, kings and actors. Sounds of flies and bees outside. Wonderful memories.


National Lollipop Day

I am the second youngest of ten grandchildren.   As a youngster lollipop meant only one thing.  A trip to my father’s parents’ farm.  It wasn’t a working farm at the time, but had lots of acreage, multiple large barns, a huge garden, a few fruit trees, and a pantry that was as large as a spare bedroom in a modern ranch house.  375 more words

Another Power Outage

Another power outage this morning. Lasted about half an hour. So sweet. Only wish I could’ve enjoyed that silence longer. Too bad it comes with the cost of not being able to open the fridge door. 146 more words

Antigua…the Beach Is Just the Beginning: Day 3

After the frenetic craziness that was yesterday, today was a low-key day with a hotel inspection and day at the Pineapple Beach Resort. Only steps from The Verandah Resort and Spa, this property was formerly the Grand Pineapple Beach Resort, owned by Sandals as one of their ‘budget’ properties however Elite Resorts has taken over and big plans are in store to bring this gem up to the level the location deserves.Located on a gorgeous, wide 400 metre white sand beach protected by a reef a couple of hundred feet out (which makes it swimmable even on windy days), the resort will be going through extensive renovations for 5 weeks starting August 30, so extensive that it will be closed for that period. 260 more words
