A New Toy




A necessity can also be fun. This necessity was brought on by a broken chair. It needed some repairing because two bolts had gotten broken and it was not reclining. What's the point with a recliner that doesn't recline? Poor thing, it had been degraded to a chair ...

Anyway, I took the bull by the horn and went to Home Depot to purchase my new toy. It makes me think about the Lowe's commercial that I liked so much that they showed in December where a guy has his Chritmas gift and is pushing the button twice and then singing "bells" (I did that too). Anyway, the chair is fixed and the toy is put away. For now. Who knows, I might use it as an instrument playing a song someday soon.

Back side of the recliner degraded to chair.

My toy.

Chair re-established as recliner.

Growing Nashville


Nashville does not look like it did when I first came here, and it's not that long ago, only 6 years. There were no Omni Hotel, no Music City Center, no Country Music Hall of Fame extension with Hatch Show Print and the CMA Theater ... and those developments changed the scenery and the feel of downtown a lot! Those are pretty cool though  ...

One con is you have to re-learn to know your way around often here. There is constant progress and construction sites everywhere. Even New York Times included an article from the Nashville Scene about what has been, and is going on Gentrification is threatening Nashville's soul?

Here's the latest Article in Music Row

What is the best option for Nashville? Keeping on tearing down historic sites in the name of money or a perfect blend of old and new with the new built on unoccupied lots? I think the latter.

My Resolutions


For starters: Happy New Year to each and all and may love be ever present in your lives.

My New Years Resolution is the same every new year and that is to be the best person I can be every day throughout the year. This year I added some things that I would like to keep doing and that is to continue taking care of myself as best I can eating healthy and not too much, not too little - or "lagom" as in the ever present Swedish "live-by-rule". I've already lost a few pounds eating "lagom", drinking two cups of organic, green tea every day and using a new exercise technique that is as easy as it is simple: just do whatever exercise or movements you want with lots of effort put into it for ... 20 seconds at a time. Yup, you read it right, 20 seconds at a time is all. I'm doing that several times throughout the day so it adds up!

Whatever you promised, or if you didn't promise anything, may 2015 bless you with lots of dreams, goals and desires come true!
