Building the biogas plant

Saturday the 29th of April 2017 was a historic day. It's when (as far as we know) the first DIY biogas system in Finland was built, and I was there to make it happen!

Handmade twice-woven rug

Binding the ends of the woven rug

I don't think if I mentioned it earlier here but I've been going to a weaving course for a few months now. It's really cool as it is very close to where I live (unlike many things, as I now live far on the countryside) and I basically get to learn weaving and weave with my neighbours, which is fun and helps me "re-integrate" into this village also! Until now I've woven a bag (well, the fabric for a bag) and this little rug I am showing you now.

Books I'd like to read in 2017

Happy 2017! I don't know about you, but I don't make resolutions, I make plans for the next year, and one of those plans this year is to participate in and finish the so-called Helmet Reading Challenge. And no, it doesn't mean a helmet like the thing you wear while biking, it's the name of all the libraries of Helsinki and it also means pearls in Finnish!

Travel journal USA 2016 - Part 3 - Dogs I befriended

Beauregard - a St. Bernard pup
Mason
Dog at Dickinson College

This very short part 3 of my travel journal is dedicated to the dogs I met during our trip. I am missing pictures of many lovely dogs, such as Mack, Popeye, Lucy, Scott and Leela, but will let these three represent the dog friends I made in the US. Meet Beauregard, a huge St. Bernard puppy; Mason, an old gentleman; and a friendly dog at Dickinson College, who let me rub his belly forever, but whose name I never learned.

Last Friday the spaceship C74 landed after a 41-year-flight through the universe. After 1 year of travel the ship and its crew reached its destination. Coming out of hyper space and hibernation the crew finds itself still in space not knowing where and when they are. The C74 autopilot is approaching a planet. Only basic live support systems are on, as well as the coffee machine, the champagne bucket and the lights!
