Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Oh Tannenbaum! The pleasure of chopping you own tree on your own grounds! It is not the most handsome tree on earth but I was up to my waist in deep snow with a rusty small ax- and alas- here it is, spreading heaps of light and pleasure!

Happiness is a warm hairy friend!

Time for a real Christmas kiss of sorts!
Sis and Hälge yesterday. Hälge is a great kisser and a pony with some personality to say the least. Stubborn, with a temper and very authoritarian in a flock of four (Arabs) of which he is by far the smallest! He also one brown and one green eye. Hälge.
Note how he is starting to curl his upperlip in anticipation of the kiss!

My princesses..

Isabella, now 5 months old and growing fast..
And Thalia 2,3 years old. Cousins they are and my two grandchildren as well - but they never met. (So far) The huge, wide Atlantic is between them! So sad. But they surely will when growing older. Thalia has already been to Europe twice. But that was before my sweet Isabella was born..

Assange is reportedly..

..released on bail in UK today.
A small step for man - a bigger step for mankind!

PS No no how wrong we were. A few hours after the decision, the district attorney lodged an appeal against this and Julian Assange has to remain in custody. The pending extradition to Sweden of Assange is now called "The Honey Trap" by his supporters. DS

Winter is gaining momentum..

..and the mice are moving indoors. (I don´t blame them!!)
However, I am getting increasingly annoyed that I am never, ever, the first to taste my breakfast bread! Well, that´s the price one pays to live in an old farm in the countryside.
And I guess - it´s worth it!

To kill the messenger:

Life of a whistle-blower is not easy. Looking back on history - a few more of those might have served mankind to avoid a holocoust or a war or two - no matter whether the messages are/were to be internet- or horseback carried..
