Hyvää Äitienpäivää - Happy Mother's Day!

Today is the day when we should show more than average respect for our mothers. Those of you who's mothers are still among us, do not only plan things or leave them for "tomorrow" but do them today. You never know what tomorrow brings along - it can be a sad surprise.

Grasp the moment, pick up the phone and call the people you care. Get your ass off the chair, leave the computer and jump on your bicycle, car, bus, train or whatever and go to meet them in person. Now, not tomorrow!

Happy Mother's Day - Hyvää Äitienpäivää!

The sports weekend continues with success: yesterday team Finland was struggling in the ice hockey World Championships against the hosting team Slovakia but succeeded to take a 2-1 win. That left Slovakia into even more difficult situation in the games. But for Finland it was a matter of life and death - luckily only in the sports as we always should remember what is important in the big picture.

We got a good reminder of that in yesterday's basketball game: In a standard situation where two players were fighting for the ball the both fell down. As both of them were competitive, they refused to give the ball to the other and held to it while falling. We hear a loud bang when a head hit the wooden floor and the other player lost his consciousness.

He was out for only a short moment but the hit was so hard it was wise to call the paramedics and off he went to the hospital for check up. Luckily after neurological tests everything appeared to be ok. Close call as one incident can change everything...

So get you ass of the chair and go! You can finish reading this later on.

Oh, you wanna know what happened in the game?

At least someone was smiling as winning is in average more fun than losing.

And soon I wish to see success in the more imporant game:
Go N, kick ass and take what is ment to be yours - Hyvä Honka!!!
