I am relieved that you and Diane are safe. At same time, I grieve for all of those children. I would like to see each child remembered somehow, perhaps a monument, in the future, when there has been time for healing. Hugs, RennyBA.
I would like to express my thanks to all of you. I am overwhelmed by your response. I have sent many personal notes in reply to your comments but I would also like to express my personal thanks here. The only way to "fight" this terror is to respond with respect, care and love. Show More Summary
Italy feels close Norway and will always support your highest sense of democracy. Stay strong Norway. Affectionately yours, Letizia xxx
Hello Renny Here are our deep condolences to norwegian people: http://luisdiferrart.blogspot.com/2011/07/norway-will-be-recognizable-again.html
I am very sorry about this horrible event hurting so many innocent lives. I was pleased for the last 3 weeks while watching the Tour de France on TV to see many Norwegian flags along the race and everyone so happy – then came the tragic news. Show More Summary

This was a very nice break in Mariestad. Yes begin to know the famous and beautiful China. I love seafood. It makes a long time since i haven't eat a so marvelous seafood dinner. In fact since I was in Bretagne in France. Seafood here is so expensive. Show More Summary
Hey -- I just read a whole article in "Elle à Table" about Norway and Norwegian cuisine and thought about you! They talked about reindeer steak and fermented fish. Of course I know you were in Sweden but I do think there are some similarities. I agree about TV. Show More Summary
Delicious candy for my eyes that are feeling so burnt out today from a heavy workload. The reindeer meat caught my attention too, but perhaps it's no different to something like kangaroo & crocodile over here or something like eating a zebra in another country! :D
hi renny! it's been quite some time since i visited you. glad to know you're enjoying the winter break! :D as usual, you treated all of us readers to a gastronomic feast even just through pictures. the food looks really great and that reindeer steak does sound interesting. Show More Summary
There is nothing like a friendly winter break! It sounds like a wonderful occasion, wonderful food, wonderful company. And the champagne provides the froth on top!! :) I do envy the artistic skills of Diane and Anna - I so wish I could do that!
I thought I had commented days ago...but I must have read about all this wonderful food and champagne...and then had to rush to the kitchen for something to eat :-) Quite wonderful. Are Lingonberries anything like Cloudberries? I had some cloudberry liqueur once and it was SO delicious, but I have never seen it since. I think mine was brought back from Finland...

You sure know how to have a good time and enjoy life, that's wonderful!! :) I didn't have to wait to be 60 yo to have 6 weeks vacation in Germany, I had them when I worked there and I was 30!!
the food looks so delicious Renny !!! reindeer steak.....wow...that would be different and here I was thinking Kangaroo steak was unusual (I have never tried it !)...so I can't tell you what it tastes like :) sounds like you had a wonderful time....and I do hope that you and Diane won't have to diet after all that wonderful cuisine :)
Social networking helps to stay connected with your friends and knows all the updates about your loved ones
I always find it so cute when you guys both blog on the same subject, just hours apart! You are connected, indeed! :-)
I am late with techny but I hope to learn a lot about if only we can have 5 minutes during the Oslo Blog Gathering and Diane and you you'll teach me a little and show me the possibilities of the nokia X6 in the reality!!!
When both spouses like digital toys, that's got to be a plus, Renny. I'm not as bad as Vagabonde but not as trendy as you and Diane...somewhere in the middle. Can you imagine what kids will be using 25 years from now?! They'll probably have chips in their brain!
Aren't new "toys" fun!!
