Mr. 17 is working very hard to convince us that a vegan diet is the way to go. Myself, I'm not so convinced, I am very fond of butter with my vegemite toast 🙂 and let's not forget the world of cheese! Still we are definitely eating less meat this year. Enter Härkis! One of a few new... Continue Reading →

Wow! This little gem of an ad appeared in my Facebook feed this morning. Not quite sure why I'm now being targeted as a possible green card applicant... Ready to make the move and build a new life in the US? Well no, not really. I'm quite happy living in Finland. I'd be more than happy... Continue Reading →

Whether it's a person, a building or an abstract shape, show us something that exists harmoniously with its surroundings. This is the brief for this week's photo challenge Graceful.
