Seven years and 70 socks

For our seven-year wedding anniversary my wife surprised me fittingly with seventy pairs of socks. Which is brilliant and the best gift ever! I don’t know about your sock drawer, so they are still in a box and it looks something like this: The fun of this gift aside, I realized how much time these […]

WordPress’ new default theme Twenty Nineteen has silently become available on WordPress.com the other night. I equally silently switched to it and did some minor tweaks to it so far. Will do a few more edits but overall I’m very satisfied with the look right out of the box.

While passing through the city of Gävle, Sweden one our return-trip from Denmark last summer my wife told me hilarious story of the Gävle Goat, and now is just the right time to share it here. From the Wikipedia article which sums up the story most nicely: The Gävle Goat (Swedish: Gävlebocken) is a traditional […]
