Hello there again! Twice in one day, wow, that has never happened before.
Sweden played really well but unfortunately they lost 3-2 in overtime so the Canadians can now call themself best in the junior hockey world. Congrats!!!

Just surfed to some other blogs I like to read. Unfortunately for non- swedish readers they are in Swedish, sorry, and found a great idea at matalskaren.taffel.se
It is all about making a new years resolution regarding greener, more earth friendly food habits. I agree with Ninna at favoritmat.blogspot.com, she is among other things promising to always use her cloth shopping bags and NOT GET PLASTIC BAGS at the grocery store. I am promising that as well! I am also promising to educate people close to me what it is to be more seasonal in your food habits. In Toronto we shouldn't be eating strawberries in January for example. Lots of people are not aware of this discussion going on at all and I was reminded of that last weekend while visiting some friends that eats very traditionally and doesn't spend much time on food. They just eat because they are hungry.... Anyway, what will you promise to do this year when it comes to your eating and foodbuying habits?? Let me know! Eat more seasonal produce, locally grown, organic....you name it there are so much going on in this department that the list is endless. Toronto is great when it comes to garbage sorting. We are sorting everything. They still discuss what we should do about the landfills of course. I heard about a really stupid thing. It was bookstore owners who has to tear the cover off totally perfect books they can't sell before they discard them. The publishers are so afraid that someone will find them and sell them without the publishers knowledge, I guess. Lots of manufactures prefer to throw away totally perfect merchandise than to have it on the market for different reasons that I can't think of right now. This became a rambling post but there is so much to say about so many things that sometimes it is hard to stop yourself!
