Lugn helg 
Helgen som gick var lugn och skön, en av de bästa på länge. Ungarna var inte altför aktiva och jag fick många tillfällen att sitta ner och ta det lugnt. En del tid tillbringade jag framför TVn och tittade då på Absolute Zero, en BBC-dokumentär om absoluta nollpunkten och på F1 avslutningen i Interlagos i Brasilen. Massa vann loppet men Hamilton blev världsmästare efter en sanslös rysare.

Nu känner jag mig i alla fall tillräckligt motiverad för att göra något vettigt nästa helg, vad nu det kommer att vara. Men det finns ju lite att ta tag i hemma efter flytten fortfarande så vi får se.

Och imorgon smäller det i amerikanska presidentvalet...

Snow - No Snow 
The forcast for today was snow, which is very early in the season. Not yet November and already snow... However, this morning there was no snow outside, just fog and 0C (32F). The ground was frosen and the surface slippry.

I was hoping for some snow yesterday, that would have made the kids happy and snow this early usually melts away rather quickly anyway. But this morning Joakim refused to eat his breakfast and was set to crying mode and I was late gone to the kindergarten because of that so probably it was just fine without snow. However, there were other places in south Sweden who got snow.

Eric Ericson 90 år 
Igår den 26 oktober blev Eric Ericson 90 år. Detta firades med en jubileumskonsert i Konserthuset med bl a Bachs H-mollmässa som är ett av Erics favoritverk. Jag har själv sjungit i kör mer eller mindre oavbrutet sedan jag var 10 år tills för några år sedan, och är man intresserad av körsång och musik är det omöjligt att inte någon gång komma i kontakt med Eric och hans körer och dirigerande. Det går inte nog att betona hur mycket han har betytt för svensk körsång och musikliv i allmänhet genom sitt verk inom musiken, både i Sverige och utomlands.

Under sina dryga sextio år som kördirigent har Eric varit en banbrytare inom både ny och tidig musik, lett Radiokören och Orphei Drängar och dessutom undervisat i stort sett varenda kördirigent i landet. Hans betydelse för det svenska körsoundet kan knappast överskattas och de stående ovationerna redan när denne numera bräcklige 90-åring får när han får hjälp in på podiet i Konserthuset igår var helt på sin plats (såg ett reportage i ABC-nytt).

Grattis Eric och Tack för allt!

Champions League Matchday 3 
Well, better than last matchday but not as good as day 1. I scored 52 points which is ok since avarage was 48 but I'm not satisfied. Zlatan being my captain failed to score despite many chances and two goals last week in Serie A. I substituted five players this time, and being a Swede I picked to Swedish players. Isaksson became a flip while Källström was a flop. Del Piero was also a successful new player in my team. In two weeks all teams play each other again and it should be less substitutions to do, judging from the results. Stay in tune...

Future Computing in 1954 
Home Tech Feels Right at Home, at least back in 1954...



The text under the picture reads: "Scientists from teh RAND Corporation have created this model to illustrate how a "home computer" could look like in the year of 2004. However the needed technology will not be economically feasible for the average home. Also the scientists readily admit that the computer will require not yet invented technology to actually work, but 50 years from now scientific progress is expected to solve these problems. With teletype interface and the Fortran language, the computer will be easy to use."

Anagram yourself 
An anagram, what's that you might ask? It's when you scramble the letters in a given word or sentence to form a difference phrase. E.g. my name Stefan is an anagram of Fasten. Sometimes you'll come up with some really funky anagrams, like these:

Bob Marley = Marble Boy
William Shakespeare = I'll make a wise phrase
Jay Leno = Enjoy L.A.
Gene Simmons = Immense Song
Microsoft Windows = Sown in discomfort
George Bush = He bugs Gore
George W Bush = he grew bogus
Waitress = A stew, Sir?
Breasts = Bra sets
The Titanic disaster = Death, it starts in ice
graduation = out in a drag
Jennifer Aniston = fine in torn jeans
David Letterman = Nerd Amid Late TV
Statue of Liberty = Built to Stay Free
Evangelist = Evil's Agent
Apple, Inc = Epic Plan
goodbye = Obey god
ipod lover = poor devil
Actor Sylvester Stallone = Very cool talentless star
Margaret Thatcher = That great charmer
Clint Eastwood = Old West Action
Saddam Hussain = Humans sad side
Sheryl crow = her slow cry

Happy Birthday, Fali 
Fali - my wife - has her birthday today. I bought some ceiling light for the hallway in our new apartment. She was happy with it so I guess I'll fix them tonight. However, the best thing was two small parcels I bought for the kids to give her. Early in the morning I went up, woke up the kids, gave them the parcels and then we sang "Happy birthday" for her while still asleep. One could tell she was more happy from having something from the kids then with I got for her, but then that's how it should be, isn't it?
