Norway: Murderer gets 30 days in prison

I can't believe this story that I read in the local newspaper (Romerikes blad) today.

Basically, some inexperienced truck driver was annoyed by a driver in front of him who was driving uneven speeds and decided to pass him. He was driving a looong truck (2 trailers long) with over 20 tons freight.

He ended up killing the driver and passanger by entering the lane again BEFORE he had passed the car completely!

So what does he get? 30 days in prison (assigned to 60 but allowed to go after half) and loses his drivrs license for 5 weeks! That's it!

Regardless of the Judge who said he showed clearly irresponsible driving and that the deaths were because he was careless and did not follow standard driving procedures.

Two people die and 5 others badly injured because of some careless moron and he gets a slap on the wrist.

What a country! Gotta love Norway. :)

Dagens horoskop

Today my daughter read my horoscope to me and for once it suited me well:
Du kan oppdage en lit tvilsom side ved en venn eller kollege i dag. Dine kommentarer og skrevne ord kan fort bli tillagt mye større vekt en vanlig, så vær forsiktig med hvordan du uttryker deg.

You may discover a doubtful side of a friend or collegue today. Your comments and written words can quickly be given more credence than usual, so be careful how you express yourself.

...but it's a day late.

Yesterday Irene became quite offended by something I said or did. Or wrote. I can't remember which.

And Lena's was also suitable for her:
En ny sak kan komme til å ta mye lenger tid enn beregnet. Energien er heller ikke helt på topp, så pass på å få slappet godt av i kveld.

Something new may take much more time than planned. Your energy is not up to par, so be sure to relax well tonight.

And today Lena is sick! No way! It knows her!

Not only that but this could suit Lena nearly every day since she almost always misjudges how much time she needs to alot for things.

Lena and I are both sick today in fact. I am working from Homw and Lena is "relaxing" home from school. Let's hope we get well soon. :)

It Snowed Last Night!

Well, these pictures are from yesterday so technically it snowed "the night before last" but either way that's pretty late in the year for snowfall!

Irene and I spent our Easter holidays cleaning the house (spring is here?) and building this mini greenhouse in our yard.

Enjoy the pics!

PS. The snow has already almost melted. Another day or two and we'll be back to the grass and dirt we love. :)

I took these pics yesterday with my cell phone because our camera is damaged...
