Ofcourse preparations are made in at …

Red alert: fire risks

Post Thumbnail of Red alert: fire risks

Today a large part of the country was on orange alert, meaning there’s a high chance of fires in nature. A plane is all the time above endangered areas.

The news landed here from different sides.
The strange tension I’ve felt for a few days was suddenly gone not too long before a friend called and told me he died. Tim Hetherington. The creative, multi-talented and ever so interesting, handsome and charming guy, who was born in Liverpool and found …

Dying news

Spammers are annoying

Post Thumbnail of Spammers are annoying

Spammers on blogs are annoying, we all agree about that. Well, except those individuals themselves.
I wonder if they’re ever in touch with their brains and if they have a life.

I’m ashamed about…

Post Thumbnail of I'm ashamed about...

This title sounds like a meme, and maybe it should be one.
