As I see more than 70 000 visitors on these pages I wish to say something:
You may think that why this crazy woman let these stupid pages still be on the air. I will tell you why: Because Stupid is my name. But don't think you are much better
than me. As you are not.
It was Christmas 2007, it was dark outside and I was spending my Christmas alone as usual. Instead of feeling sorry to myself I was thinking what could I do and I created these pages. It was fun, then.
And in celebration of that Christmas these pages are still here. This is history. Ten years is a long time. A lot has been changed in our world since then. In order to be still alive I must be some kind of hero.
Feel free to hate me. I love myself, though. Somebody has to.
My daughter-in-law (1971-2014)was fighting cancer for 15 long years.
The fight is over now.
Rest in peace.
Thank you and respect for your work for your family and for your 3 wonderful children.
You were precious.
In celebration of Halloween
I want to inform everybody that I'm still alive.
Even children call me "zombie" and zombies shouldn't walk on the streets, my game is not over yet.
Some years ago my eyesight was failing that much that I did think myself the game was over for me. However, last year I was able to get an operation with great success. Everything is fine now.
I learned though that when you are weak your life becomes a continuous Halloween party and the wolves are everywhere. Darwinism rules in Finland and the strongest may survive only.
Yesterday I followed a very interesting lecture on Religion and the Mysteries of Babylon by an American magician Ray Eden from New York (living in Helsinki).
And he made a magic trick with me as well!
Hallelujah! 😉 😀
I have a new handbag direct from Ireland!
A lamb! 🙃
This is also a statement: Don't eat lambs at Easter, please!
An other statement could be: Don't be a lamb, but let them be...
Today is a good day!
One year ago I wrote about a police who raped 16-years old girl twice and took pictures of her afterwards.
He got away with it.
Now Court of Appeal has put this guy to prison for 2,5 years!
There IS some hope for justice in Finland. Thank you.
This photo is not stolen but it is my own:
Sampo Kivelä, one of the finest ballet dancers in Finland, now already retired - I guess.
In one interview he said:
- I am interested in aesthetic of ugliness as life is not a wallpaper with flowers.
- If you surround yourself with beautiful things only, contact to reality will vanish.
_ If you want to reach people from stage you have to know them and their world. Therefore friends of other fields of life are necessary and so important.
Kenneth Greve, Royal Danish Ballet Principal
is Principal of National Ballet in Helsinki since 2008 and he just has made his contract till 2014.
He brought wind of change to Finland. Some say that he is too tough and demanding, but especially young dancers like him as he gives them possibilities to show their talent more as usual.
When I was young I loved ballet a lot, but I never dreamed to be a ballerina as I knew I could not get training any way.
However, there was and still is this contradiction between beauty and pain, why we expect from beautiful people to be anorectic and unhappy like many models, dancers, athletics and other stars truly are.
I remember when my son was about 7 years old he listened to Swan Lake for hours and hours. He said: Mama, I want to be a dancer.
Ok, I said, and we went to find a class for him. He went there about an year till an engineer from Airbus told him that a boy should not dance unless he wanted to be a .... you know. So that was that. So much of being a dancer.
Not every engineer is like that, of course. Once I had a very good college whose daughter was ballerina of National Ballet. Sometimes she came to our office and we spoke about her operations and about the tough side of life of dancers. About the pain which makes the beauty.

Snow Snow Snow - Arctic cold - Snow again -
What is this? Last winter was the same.😥
Today Finland remembers Urho Kekkonen (3.9.1900-31.8.1986) President of Finland 1956-1982,
I have no personal relationship to him as in the 50's I was a child, in the 60's I left Finland and in the 80's, as I came back, he was already out of picture.
But as a child I heard at least 2541 times this story:
My grandfather builded windmills and loved horses. He even had a hotblooded one. He also loved to drink.
Urho Kekkonen's father was a forestworker, who loved to drink a lot as well.
So they spent time together with their common hobby. My grandmom and Urho Kekkonen's mom didn't like that at all. So that made them friends.
Then my uncle, who was the same age as Urho, did forestwork together with the stúdent to be a lawyer Urho Kekkonen.
And that's not even all yet.
One of my Borzois, Sinaidan Bjelka Veter 1984-1995 (in the picture) was a lineal descendant of a Borzoi, which was a present of Russia (Sowjetunion) to President of Finland. She was such a lovely dog.
So much of my life with VIPs. 🙃
OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG OMG
There is a phrase in Finland which goes that to be born in Finland is like winning in lotto.
I always found that rather questionable but from now on I have to learn to shut my mouth.
Why is that?
Newsweek has made a country list which shows the globe's true champions regarding health, education, economic dynamism, political environment and quality of life.
And the champions are:
Yesterday, it was a hot day in the city and my sister and I, we went to see Knight and Day
After I asked her, how many stars she was ready to give to the movie. She said 1 star for Tom Cruise and one for Cameron Diaz and half star for Salzburg (my exparents-in-law lived there).
Ok. Me, I give one star for Tom Cruise for being still in good shape and one for Cameron Diaz for being still beautiful and ready for crazy movies. That makes together already nearly 5 stars. And I give half star for Tom for the wonderful split he did in the MTV Movie Awards this year.
All together, 5 stars! How about that?! 😎
The hottest summer for 165 years!!! A bit too hot for me...
I just read two books which I bought a few years ago: Deepak Chopra Grow younger live longer of 2001 and Life after Death of 2006.
"Once you realize that the whole scheme of worlds IS imagined by Spirit, from the lowest to the highest, from demons to angels, there can be nothing dangerous about creation."
Once you truly understand that, all the symbols by which the outside world tries to brainwash you, cannot effect you any longer. You are a kind of free.
He - like me - believes that consciousness isn't in the brain and that proof DOES exist, but it cannot be physical. The beliefs of materialism are not everything there is.
Ironically, the miracle of death is that we don't die.
And what about aging?
Healthy food, exercise, elimination of toxins from your life, cultivating flexibility and creativity and so on.
You should also remember The Quantum Possibilities!
You are capable of taking quantum leaps. Your essential state IS a field of infinite possibilities.
Blah blah blah - I know. Still - good to remember.
Now I need a shower - again...
Flourish and prosper! 😀
Today was my first garden day! My dear metal plated left arm is working again. 😀 Even I have to train it every f****ng day. I am happy though...
There IS God after all!🤭
Today is the Earth Day
Only one Earth, always unpredictable, capricious but so nourishing and life-giving - this is our precious home. Our Mother Earth which we should respect more and her cycles as well. The mother will, if needed, shake away of her those who forget to thank for all her presents which she gives us for nothing.
The Mother Earth will survive, but what about us?
Now, as the Easter eggs are eaten, we can finally focus on something else:
This is the song for Eurovision contest 2010:
It tells that sure, you can earn your living by working - but if you really want to get rich - then you have to make business!!!
Breaking news from Finland! 😮
Today, about 1980 years ago, a guy named Jesus had a very bad day.
For me, he is a brilliant example to show what happens, when you are intelligent and different AND speak out what you think.
They will laugh at you, they will fight you, they will adore you and finally, they will kill you. They always do. And if the law does not allow it - so - sure - they will find an other way.
Instead of crying for Jesus, we really should use our power to ensure that we don't do that today or tomorrow to others and do not allow others doing it to us.
Only this way Jesus died to save us.
One should think that what else is new? But look around! If we really would do this THAT would be THE breaking news!
A deeply philosophical movie:
I often felt like Alice in Wonderland in my life and I think, so has Johnny Depp 😉 - so I am in good company. He told in an interview that he actually wanted to play Alice but they didn't let him...😥
Inspired by Vancouver 2010 Olympic Winter Games I need to say that
I just love snowboarding!
Aged people can do a lot of things but this - I think - I must skip it - for now...
In Finland, there is a lot of talk about a police, who raped a 16-years old girl twice and took 17 pictures from her afterwards. He got not even prisoned. However, the case is still open for higher levels of justice.
Therefore, my statement of today:
Le pere Noel always knows best.
He brought me a book Fuck it - the ultimate spiritual way by John C. Parkin.
"When you say Fuck it, you carry out a spiritual act, because you give up, let go, stop resisting and relax back to the natural flow of life"
Nothing is not spiritual.
It is impossible to be not spiritual.
OMG! Why me?! What have I done to deserve this?! Is there any justice in life?!
I crossed the street and the chicken flight was short. I broke my left arm in 3 pcs.
My arm was operated on 15 December and there is quite some metal in my arm now. I feel like a robot.
What should I learn of all this? What I DID learn was more respect for doctors and nurses. I love people who act professional in their work and are not those who "just work here" = who do not care a damn what happens.
My official thank to those who helped.
Today 70 years ago Winter War was started. Three hours after Soviet forces had crossed the border, Helsinki was bombed and one of the first victims was my aunt.
55 buildings were destroyed and 97 people died.
With reference to the information given on November 15, I need to add this:
The Finnish columnist Jyrki Lehtola wrote that those signs could be later changed into:
"Die, bitch, die
as the partnership gets a little bit older.
Malheureusement, that's possible. We will see...
The Finnish newspaper Helsingin Sanomat reported today that Finland's Anthony Robbins Jari Sarasvuo
has put three signs on the jogging path of his current partner who is a professional sportswoman:
That's it. I have nothing more to say.
Turn a somersault and get a life!
Okey. Life is an art and that makes me (and you) an artist.
Life is a kind of communication. The quality of communication (life) depends on technique and originality.
As an artist I communicate with my audience. Too much originality throws the audience into disagreement with me and therefore less success. However, even with less success it still remains an art.
My life may not be worthwhile in the eyes of others but it still remains my life and I have copyright for it according to Human Rights. And so have you for yours.
I have a question for you, you Besserwissers:
How come that if I go to a bus and hear schoolboys and -girls talking, every second word is "vittu" (which is about the same as "fuck" in English). Bullying is Order of the Day in schools whereafter schoolshooting can occur as well.
If I would go to a class mornings I would find quite some children who have forgotten something home or who do not know something they should know. That's normal.
However, if a person over 50 does something bizarre, forgets something, swears/curses a little bit, it is a very bad behaviour which is a sign of dementia.
Why is that? 😠
Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides)
The berry-like, orange coloured fruit of the sea buckthorn contains lots of vitamin A, B and C.
This year I got a lot of them from my little garden - the first time, by the way.
Big Brother Finland 2009
Just 1 km away from my home there is the Big Brother house.
I remember how retarded I found that program first. First year I didn't look at it at all. One has to have some principles, you know. Those wanna-be-15 min-famous people. Yäk.
The next year I saw the ending and I liked it.
Then my operator gave me 24/7 program for nothing and I started to look at it more. I found it quite interesting. You can see it in so many different ways. And for people inside it must be a great opportunity to understand self and others much better thereafter.
There is a problem in Finland - again!
The famous Finnish mobilephone company Nokia informed us that it is getting connected with Facebook. That's fine. BUT! A morning show host in TV (a woman!) said that "what happens when in two years there are only old women in Facebook?"
What a scary future! There is nothing as scary as old women! They walk in the streets and they go shopping. Sometimes they even open their mouth. Once there was a time where old women didn't know about internet. Who told them?!!!!!
The King Carl XVI Gustav and Queen Silvia of Sweden visited Finland 25.-27.8.2009.
When I see the Queen Silvia I must smile when I remember the 1972 Summer Olympics in Munich West-Germany.
She was Sylvia Sommerlath then, who worked as a hostess trainer with the Organizing Committee for Munich.
And what about me? I lived near to Olympic Park, in Schleissheimer Strasse, with my family. I saw an announcement in newspaper that women were wanted to be trained as hostess for Summer Olympics. I went there and the first thing to do was an IQ-test. This way big part was discarded. But not me! Hah! A woman came after me and said: "Do you know, many Finnish girls have been here as well, but no one has got such a good test result as YOU did!" WOW.
And a few days later I got an invitation to the final test day. We got about 2 hrs time to read a book about sports in German language. After that we got a long list questions about the book. All went quite ok but my final result lacked 2-3 points. So I didn't got Sylvia's training. And fair enough so. I do not understand about sports very much.
I love Austria and I adore Bruno!
Why is this? Well, I was 16 years Austrian citizen without ever living there. Maybe this is the reason?
I visited Schönbrunn 5 times. The first time I didn't pay because someone of my exhusband's familymembers was working and living there. He died in the 80s.
Vienna has been a good city for artists. I don't know how it is today.
But today there is Bruno! He is real and charming. And he wears Lederhosen. Lederhosen are beautiful and very lasting. Everybody should wear them.
Just one thing: he said that Hitler was a bitch. I didn't like that at all. I found it a little bit insulting but I overlook it this time because he is soooo cute.
The planet will survive but what about us? We are consumers who know thousands of company logos but only a few animals and plants.
We have to change the desire of people. The natur gives us all for nothing. When do we start to pay back?
RIP Michael Jackson
I don't remember when I have cried for a popstar but this morning I did. Tears came as I heard the sad news about you. You were definitelly the King. Yes, you were - in so many ways.
And as I believe - like you did - that life always goes on - I wish you well. I really do. RIP and thank you.
Helsinki Day invites visitors to indulge in the city
Helsinki celebrates its birthday on 12 June, when residents and visitors can enjoy special events and explore the city’s past and present on foot, with a sightseeing tour by bus, or with the help of an entertaining city consultant. Helsinki Day has been celebrated since 1959.
When you are retired life can be sooooooo exciting!
This baby is a chili pepper and it has grown since yesterday about 1 cm!
I'm sure of it. 😉🙃
Oh yes! There was an other news as well:
1.6.2009 Air France flight AF 447, Airbus 330-200 from Rio de Janeiro to Paris has dispared with 228 passengers on board. And the best(?) is, I spent nearly 10 years of my precious life for company Airbus.
Which one of the news is more important?
Who can tell?
The difference between us and a rock is that human behavior as opposed to the behavior of a rock has its roots deep in the quantum mechanical level, from the individual DNA molecules in every single cell in the brain.

I saw in TV:
I have seen so many good movies in my life that only a few can affect me any more. But yesterday I saw such a one.
I saw Into the Wild from 2007, directed by Sean Penn and acted by Emile Hirsch and William Hurt.
The story is based on truth. A 22 years old guy from wealthy family with university studies and brilliant future ahead, left everything behind, gave his money to charity and went to wilderness with a book about pousinous and good herbes. He wrote diary and stayed alive 2 years. 1968-1992.
The question was left open: was he an utopian who really found something new or was he just a naive spoiled boy.
Check it out:
The other one I saw in Discovery channel, where scientists spoke about the future in abt 30 years ahead. They showed a robot which was able to learn and develop by itself. The scientists were really concerned what will happen when those robots are virtually more intelligent as the humanity. How they will treat us then?
And THAT was no science fiction.
Today is the war veterans day in Finland.
My father was wounded in the war. He told us he swore that if he will survive the war he would never complain of or about anything in his life.
And he didn't. Ever.
I visited today Palm Sunday Service in the Orthodox Church of a cloister and bought pasha, made by nuns of the cloister.

However, we have a lot of snow and tne grades are between -2 and -20 C.
This is Finland!
I don't know why I thought this today, but I had the pleasure to know this talented guy years ago.
I have painted myself, not that good though...

The Night of the Arts on August 22, 2008
Helsinki's Night of the Arts is one of the highlights of the annual Helsinki Festival, showing off the city and its talent. Art galleries, libraries and bookstores open their doors until late.
WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW WOW
I visited the Art Museum Tennispalatsi in Helsinki and saw the exhibition of Anton Corbijn (born 1955 in Netherlands).
He became famous from the seventies on with his pictures of different artists, for ex. U2, Depeche Mode, David Bowie, Miles Davis, Johnny Depp, Keith Richards, Mick Jagger, Nick Cave etc. etc.
He has done ca. 80 music videos, for ex. for Metallica, Nirvana, Roxette, Johnny Cash, Coldplay and the Killers, and more than 100 different covers.
Check it out for yourself: http://www.corbijn.co.uk/frameset_photo.htm
I bought a fitball (gym ball) and tried it out!!!!
Fantastic and safe. Improves posture and strengthens abdominal and back muscles. For all levels of fitness.
No one can stop me now! 😀
Spring is here! How nice. It was the warmest winter ever in Finland. Now I need to prepare myself for the gardenwork - uh.
And then something else. I just bought a book from Naomi Klein: The Shock Doctrine: the Rice of Disaster Capitalism.
Her former book was No Logo which I loved.
The book is thick and I'll tell you what I think about it later.

I visited BodyMindSpirit -Expo and heard two interesting lectures.
First one was Rainbow-Eagle, a 65-years young Okla-Choctaw American Indian, a wisdom keeper. He spoke about Mother Earth and about HER cycles. I liked it a lot.
If you wish, check http://www.rainboweagle.com
The second one was Dr. Vonderplanitz, he told us about his incredible life, where he was an autistic boy with cancer and other diseases and to whom was given 1 year time to live.
He created a Primal diet, a raw diet, and his best teachers were wild animals, especially jackals.
Now, 40 years later he, a Dr., is still going strong and healthy.

They are talking a lot about the civil war 1918 in Finland right now. Just 90 years ago.
January 1918, my grandfather, born 1874, the father of my mom, in Karelia, was asked to join the civil guard (polit.right). He refused and told them he would'nt be armed for anybody.
February 15, 1918, he was prisoned.
June 24, 1918, he died at the prison camp Tammisaari with his brother and many hundred others. Also my fathers brother died there the same sommer, only 16-years old boy.
My grandmom was left allone with many children in the middle of the civil war.
Those people had to live through the World War II as well.
What a life! Respect!
Why people always fight things they do not understand? Why they don't just take the challenge to learn more about life?
😠 🤨 😲 😀
The most unselfish thing to do is to feel well and take care of yourself. 🤩
What I thought today? Hmmm.... still no thoughts...🤔
Where is my brain? Has it something to do with 1.1.2008? No idea. 🤩
This is my diary.
Have a little patient with me. I'll tell you when I have something to say to you.
And remember this:
If you don't disagree with me, how will I know I'm right?
