(Eng.) Allergy friendly and healthy energy bars – a simple small meal

After I started on a gluten free diet, in 2009, and continued on a dairy free diet, I tried to find a replacement for the energy bars that I’d used as small meals. That was harder than I’d thought, because the ones that were gluten free, had milk in them and vice versa, or they were full of sugar and other unhealthy stuff. I was therefore very happy when I found a lot of different, healthy energy bars, in the American web shop iherb.com, that I could have!

(Eng.) Photos of a ladybug, taken with my new macro ring flash on

I bought a macro ring flash, last week and I think it does it’s job. However, I find it to give more reflections than I’d like, as it does on the back of the ladybug that I photographed, as you can see on the photos below. After playing some with the flash, I wanted to try a diffuser on it. I made one of paper and taped it to the flash, to get a less direct- and bright light.

(Eng.) “Wine cubes”

Sometimes when opening up a bottle of wine, you only want to enjoy a couple of glasses, and not empty the whole thing. You might forget about the rest of the wine, and let it sit in the fridge for too long, and then having to throw it out. I have a tip…

En fremmed er en venn du ikke kjenner ennå

Da jeg kom hjem fra utfluktene, tok jeg meg mange ganger i å si “han tyske fyren sa…”, “han ene gjorde…” etc., så det er tydelig at møtene satte tankene mine i sving. Det morsomme er at vi ikke introduserte oss for hverandre engang, vi delte kun en samtale og en solnedgang – mystiske møter som var over da solen hadde lagt seg.

(Eng.) A stranger is a friend you haven’t met yet

When I got home from my excursions, I more than once said «you know, this German guy said…», “the guy did…” etc, so it’s obvious that the meetings put my mind to work. The funny thing is that we never introduced ourselves, we only shared a conversation and a sunset – mystical meetings that lasted up till the sun’s bedtime.

To recycle or not to recycle? – That’s a silly question!

We get lots of unnecessary paper in the mail, both ads and large envelopes. Instead of tossing these right out, they can come in handy. I use them to write shopping lists, to-do lists, poetry and general rambling.

(Eng.) Backup, don’t back down

We’ve all got our photo albums, creative projects, love letters, business documents and what not, on a hard drive. When so much important stuff is saved in one place, it’s like pulling an ‘all in’, in a poker game, and having just a one pair-hand. Therefore, it’s crucial to do backups, not to lose all of your files.
