Happy all the day
Yesterday was a bit hard to keep the mood in top. Probably had to do
with the late night the day before…
Anyhow - my band (VasaBand) did a music service yesterday in Hallunda
Folkets Hus and it was very well received.
Lots of people (200 persons) and a great atmosphere. I am really
impressed with all the activities that was going on at that place.
The band played fairly well i thought. I recorded it all and may be able
to put something up here for listening. Keep a lookout.
Happy - and still going
We did a
good job last night with launching a new application, although the road
there was a bit bumpy.
My “stay happy whatever approach” was close to collapsing a few times
but instead took a turn into near madness. A lot of singing and some
dancing got me through the day.
listened to Vasa Gospel, and their CD
Precious Lord on the way in.
They are a gospel choir from my corps in the Salvation army. Great! This
CD is so well sung, well produced and well played. If you only hear one
gospel CD in your life then this is a pretty good candidate.
Happy week - so far so good
Well, well, well - this happy week
to be working… One day with no anger and everything is dandy. Did take
to much effort either.
I even managed to handle some bumps in the road yesterday, with some
laughter and dancing (?!?!) instead of digging graves. There might be
If this continue i will have to extend the period - let me get back to
you on that.
Babies and their parents III
OK - i was wrong, a bit at least.
Met my friends and their new daugther last Friday -and it’s a completely
new life for them. Especially for the father. I was great to see
though - a lot of love in the air. So - the “still being us”-thing will
probably fade for a while but i am sure that it will come back and that
they will watch sopranos late at night even though the baby needs to
But they will never fall into the super-parents-trap! I am sure of that
week i was in a terrible mood here at work. I am embarrassed even to
think about it…This has to do with me not being happy about the
situation we are in at my customer.
But i noticed one strange and weird thing: the more moody and angrier i
got, the worse the situation got (or seemed to be).
So this week i am trying a whole new approach: i will not be angry a
single time at work (and not a home either i hope :-)). A all in all
positive approach is the credo of this week. It will be a good lesson
for my self and also an experiment to see if it really works.
So to start things off, in the words of ET: “BE GOOD!” (and let’s see
where that takes us - Marcus)
Listen to the band
Every Monday morning i start the day with some good radio. The
program Listen To the Bands has their program up for later listening. A
real classic and some great band almost every time. Go here:
I am going there now!
CD from Eikanger-Bjørsvik
bought the CD Twenty supreme
Eikanger-Bjørsvik a week ago. You will never be disappointed with
release from them. The playing is absolutely stunning and the
arrangements are great. Some really quirky music, but hey - who cares?
If you don’t have it - get it now!
PS. When the cover is opened a friend of my can be seen playing the
horn, with mute. Way to go Trine.
Results from Swedish Championships
4BarsRest are a bit slower than
me ;-) but here is a an article about the Swedish BrassBand
But Gothenburg has not won the US
Championships, to my knowledge, but became world champions 1988, and
that event was held in Australia.
Again - that was the best competition in Sweden ever! I hope that it
will be more of the same level.
Babies and their parents II
When i wrote about babies and their
it caused a small stir here at the office, of course from the parents
here. Apparently babies will take up all your spare time.
Anyhow - my friends, that was late pregnant, has now had a little girl.
We are going there tonight and i am really looking forward to meeting
them and her.
And also see if they still are the same people or if there has been
major changes to them -as it have to be according to my co-workers. I
won’t promise to eat anything if not but i sure hope that its still my
old friends and not super-mum and dad.
