Vi närmar oss 12 slaget, klockan är nu 18.00 och det stämmer säkert till eftertanke för många,men även många förväntningar på det nya året 2017.

Jag önskar er alla ett Fredligt och nöjsamt år. Den 1 januari tar vår käre utrikesminister Margot Wallström över ordförandeklubban i FN's säkerhetsråd där vi kommer att sitta dom närmaste 2 åren. Jag har stora förhoppningar på Margot och hennes gäng men givetvis måste vi också ha med oss dom 5 stora permanenta medlemsländerna i dom frågor som vi vill väcka. Jag tror att Sverige kan bli bra för FN och kanske kan vi påverka,reformera denna instution för at gemensamt med alla andra länder förbättra den värld vi har till låns.

PS:Sen önskar jag att man tillverkar svenska tåg för svenska förhållanden och att staten tar tillbaka hela järnvägsnätet och all trafik och att man behåller all trafik till övre Norrland ända upp till Abisko.


Jag önskar och hoppas att APPLE CORPS kommer att leverera under 2017.


Denna fantastiska bok av den helt underbara professor emerita's Bodil Jönsson borde alla läsa.Man liksom bara ha den sådär bredvid fåtöljen/sängen och läsa något kapitel när man har lite tid över. Den gav mig första gångerna en hel del Aha upplevelser.


Jo,sju sjuka år med lika många operationer! Ja,nu hoppas jag få tillbaka min kropp,min kondition och ett gott liv med ett trivsamt jobb och olika intressanta,spännande projekt som kanske lockar :-) 


Jo,jag mår bra och jag är helt okay och jag duger som jag är och jag vet vem jag är: Jag är trummis.


Jag önskar min familj,släkt,vänner ett bra år med positiva upplevelser och mycket kärlek.

Själv hoppas jag kunna vandra med någon på mitt älskade Skansen nästa år. Skansen ger mig så mycket syre och det är så vackert lugnt och Skansen väcker väldigt många vackra minnen för mig.

Status Quo var den grupp som fick inleda Live Aid 1985.

Den  bästa och mesta låten med Status och Rick Parfitt's intro är ju klassiskt.

En tidlös boogie låt som lär hålla i tid och evighet.

Att man skriver mycket i dessa dagar om George Michael köper jag men denna grupp har defacto sålt 130 miljoner album(Geoge Michael 100 milj.) och ar kamperat ihop i 49 år. Att Rick fått liten uppmärksamhet stör mig lite grann. Kanske är det mer spektakulärt,sett ur en tabloids ekonomiska perspektiv, att skriva om droger,sexualitet,gripanden,uppbrott m.m Inte vet jag men Status Quo är en grupp som harvat, turnerat i massor mer än dom flesta andra band och för det har dom min fulla credit !

Rick Parfitt var något så ovanligt som en slitvarg inom rocken.

Själv såg jag dom i Kungliga tennishallen i Stockholm 7 september,1974.


Här har dom precis landat Stockholm 1974.

Pappa, musiker, feminist, busschaufför, socionom, elefantskötare, älskar fjäll, vatten, vildmark, pugilist, älskare, människa med allt vad det innebär. Jag är trogen demokratisk socialdemokrat och det är enkelt, bara att hålla sig till sanningen!


Upplever du att pandemin är över ?


Jag skriver om

Politik, människor, djur, musik, natur, min vardag, mina tankar om livet och vår framtid och lite till.


Seriös? Ja, oftast, men ibland kan jag vara lite stollig eller något annat.
