Oh boy I'm glad we have a sauna at home!
Tonight after a game of football/soccer - where unfortunately the involved family member was not able to play due to a virus - 2 family members were cheering for the team at the pitch - I was again truly happy about having a sauna!!!
Let's get real, I guess it is best to go to the sauna topic before I sign out = we will find out a right person to talk to and I will step out ;o)
I''m not gonna find pics for the moment but who knows - I might do it soon.
This morning I heard on the radio that the number of saunas in Finland is about 3 million! That means we have more saunas than cars. Insane...!
I'd guess that the books and stats from the 1950's say we have had at that time somewhat 50.000 lakes and for us Finns, and what we see printed in the books is the trueth! Then most probably some Swede claimed they have 55.000 lakes. Well, if you know any of us Finns, there's no way we can sit back and; let our beloved friends next door be better without a battle!
So we gotta do a recount and announce a higher number than Sweden! And so on - get the picture...? That is the fantastic love and hate stuff with the Swedish friends- and I can say I do have many people over there I consider friends but none that I consider "neverwannameetyouagain"!
Hey, nowadays Finnair posts in their in-flight -magazine that Finland has got 188.000 lakes! And if somene prints it, it must be true or...?
No matter how many rocks we count, as long as it is good for the money - that at the end is the reson we come or don't come to the office ;o) Let's try to develop the working community towards a "don't care where or when you do it, as long as you do it" -mentality. It won't be easy and all of our stuff will NOT be able to do it but if we will try, we will take one step towards the right solution!
Puss o' kram till mina Svenska vänner! Not the guys though, sorry ;o)
PS Wanna go and check out the Finnish archipelago from the sea or in need for a preeeetty good place for meetings?
