What an ordeal. I’m amazed how strong you are; I could have not walk for even 20 minutes. The love you have for the animals is admirable; worrying about cars hitting the wild boars which by the way, I have seen several videos them attacking people/running after them (scary stuff). So happy you made it home safe. Hopefully nothing major with the car and your baby can be back home. My car’s name is Mary Jane. Well, my faithful Mary Jane that hardly has problems (that’s why I gave it a sweet name).
PS. Just curious: How much a taxi would have charge you from train to home?
Change oil in car every three months keeps it tip top shape. I do that for my car for 12 yrs now.
The energy that comes with a Raw Vegan diet is just WoW!
Please don’t come for me wowpolice I searched wow with my username, I can’t believe my use of this word. I dare say, it’s, w_ _, uhmm. . . mindblowing.
I think tla taxi would have been around 700kr (65,99 usd) so it wouldn’t have been unreasonable for my budget. But we only have one taxi and I didn’t want to disturb him, this is rural and I know everyone here. I couldn’t do anything yesterday I had pain in my body but it’s better now and I’m going to take it slow today as I’m going to compete this weekend (Swedish mastership in iaido).
Walking is something my family is used to my grandmother (may she rest in peace) could walk for hours even when she was senile and over 80, it was harder for her but I guess it was in her bones (and culture she was from Finland).
I care about all animals wild boars could be a problem but I’m not really afraid of them and not the Eurasian lynx (we have a lot of them here) either I’m more afraid of humans than wild animals. Okej, I’m not going to lie if the wolf had been seen in the area then I think I would have been slightly more nervous but it’s been a while now and I always read about sightings. I will get my car back to day and I honestly don’t know much about cars I got my driver’s license 9 years ago (I was the oldest at the drivers school but I didn’t care). I’m originally from Stockholm and there the public transport is so great you don’t really need to drive (so I’m late on that arena), I always let the garage do maintenance on my car she’s a Volvo 945 from 95 some here call that model a tractor as it’s easy to repair and not expensive.
Thank you so much for taking the time to answer. It’s interesting to know about prices in other countries when it comes to transportation and stuff like that. Is amazing how much cheaper it would be compared to here in USA (about $250 to $300 USA), and the fact that you only have one taxi driver was so shocking to me since we have so many here is even ridiculous (taxi now are for the rich ppl. only with this hike in prices).
Cars back in the days were better built and created to last. Now as consumers we mainly buy LEMONS.
We don’t tipp either (that wouldn’t feel appropriate) and that’s what the few people from USA that I have met do. Some Americans even tried to give me tipp för guiding in church, and that was so strange for me (I told them to put the money in the candelbox, as I really couldn’t take money). I think it’s interesting that traditions can be so much alike and so totally different. We have good health care that everyone afford, but we have taxes so that many of us can live good life’s (not all it’s not an Eutopia). One thing I love about internet is that I can sitt in my sofa (and read and interact with people all over the world), if you are curious about Norther Europe than I’m always open to talk about it. And honestly I don’t mind talking about my life.
That’s wonderful to know since there are limits to where I can travel I’m always curious about the daily life routine in other places. Thank you so much.
In USA tipping is mandatory. When we go out now to eat at Restaurant tipping went up to 18% and I don’t mind. I tip the UPS/ A m azon guys, and they tell me they are not allowed to take them (but I convince them to take it). Is a hard job to do and my complex has no elevators so I appreciate they walk up the stairs for me.
PS if I don’t tip I feel so bad about myself like I abuse the person by not tipping them. I get so uncomfortable when they don’t take the tip.
There are various people with various stomach or digestive differences and genes, and exercise plays a role as well. - It is true to stay as much active when you get older and eating healthy extends ev life, but in the end genes and whatever can cross your goals. - I would definitely miss my once or twice a week some type of meat.
This reminds me when researchers Samsel /Seneff did a research about glyphosates, which is sprayed on crops and is in Round Up… the chemical causes lot of bad things to livestock, humans and the environment. In NH we tried to push Label GMos, there were 27 states trying to pass a law that would label whether there was GMO food in there, because these gmos were also treated with glyphosates… there were statements reported of livestock having problems with fertilization, organ shrinking etc.
Anyway… the above research team were also under threat back then and as we know Monsanto and Co tried to prevent the movement until Vermont passed the bill and all the food with gmos had to be labeled across the entire US. In Europe the Round Up (glyphosates) is banned and taken from the shelves in stores.
Some towns in US have prohibited the use of the weedkiller Round Up like the first Oqunguit in Maine.
There were in past occurrences… where big companies hid side effects in their products until it became a big issue in public.
I knew about this and this is a serious offense in Singapore for everyone, they have also other laws if you damage or trash properties, I think even graffiti, there was an American, don’t remember what he did, but he was caned with a cane for that crime.
I read once an article about removing gums in New York City… it is indeed a arduous work to remove it! The need special equipment. In my younger years I used chewing gum but ev. stopped I didn’t feel the need. It is bad for your teeth, only thing ev. helpful when you fly or take off. Today many peope not only throw out trash, cigarette buds but also chewing gums… Switzerland used to be so sparkling clean and now you see trash a lot… not sure why… but when people are careless and lazy this happens…
If I drive for a longer time than I’m used to I use chewing gum, that said I have a garbage bag in my car (littering is awfull). I don’t really understand why people can’t just carry around their trash until they find some where to throw it away. Perhaps people have gotten lazier than before.
This is the weekend that I´m competing…Today I was okej, i didn´t win or get any price but honestly getting ones stepp longer than expected was so fun (I was so surprised when qualified for one more part of the competition and if I hade gotten one more flag than I would have gotten a bitt longer). Did take my laptop with me in the hopes that I would work on my series but well i´m old and it takes so much strength. That said I´m looking forwards for tomorrow and to the competitions in the futur, this wasn´t my last time… It´s beautifull here in Falkenberg, at least what I have seen.,
