Farewell, our four-legged friend

Our first, the very best and only dog - the amazingly beautiful and always glad, pitch black Labrador Retriever +Neo Gerr , is not with us any longer. After more than eleven great years together we had to make that final call, the one that's so hard.

The last days we had together with Neo were sad but also really good - he had some of his better days - and we were outdoors a lot, Neo doing all those things he liked to do. Quite a few car rides, too - he loved that and was always eager to jump in.

Neo went to sleep the last time on July 31, resting in my wife's lap completely relaxed. Soon he was snoring a bit and we actually smiled. After some ten minutes, he then died very peacefully while we were holding him close.

I'd guess most of us who are not young any longer have experienced situations with deep sorrow connected to human relations. Somehow I guess I thought - or hoped - that losing Neo wouldn't be so bad. Boy, was I wrong.

Some additional photos from our last days with our great pal here: http://bit.ly/LastDaysWithNeoGerr    #ft

Så trevligt, att #LuleåAirport får konkurrens lär inte skada! Såg inte några flygplan visserligen - kanske är det inte riktigt klart än. Undrar om det blir direktflyg till alla häftiga internationella resemål? #ft

Neither of us is very young - even though I'd guess I'm only kinda middle age compared to our great pal +Neo Gerr​ - but this morning is really good for us both! Just hoping to get a message soon from the Nordic wilderness, it's been a while for sure. A satellite messenger perhaps might be a good idea.. #ft

5,5 miljoner kronor. Så mycket tyckte Handelsbanken att det var värt för att höra den före detta amerikanska presidenten Bill Clinton tala. Det framgår av de deklarationsuppgifter som makarna Clinton nu har offentliggjort."Det rimmar väldigt illa med den image banken vill visa upp", säger Aktiespararnas vd Carl Rosén.

The summer is still lingering  in August but, basically, it's back to business again - at least in the Nordic area!

The truly amazing   #eTwinningOnAir   #podcast     offers these #HangoutsOnAir   in audio format so anyone can subscribe to the show through the  iTunes catalogue: http://bit.ly/eTwinningOnAirPod - and yes, there are apps for both iOS and Android as well! Read all about it: http://bit.ly/eTwinningOnAirAppBlog

As usual, before participating in a #HOA   it makes good sense to check out the Happy Hangouts Check List: http://bit.ly/HappyHangouts
To all panel members: no loudspeakers - use an ear bud instead!

There are only ten slots in the panel but the Hangout will be available after the fact through my YouTube channel :
http://www.youtube.com/niiloa

Finally, a direct link to the streaming webcast on YouTube, functional when we are On Air :

Amazing continental breakfast, very friendly staff, everything top quality - and you pay top dollar as well but hey, it's Stockholm..!

Great location by the water - nice outdoor seating - and tasty food but the price level is crazy, just like pretty much everywhere in Stockholm. A drink, a beer, double espresso and a vegetarian chimichanga (not a huge helping) totalled SEK 400..

Friendly staff, neat and clean rooms, good breakfast - can it get much better? Oh yes it can - the location a couple of subway stops south of the city is really beautiful, almost hidden in one of the nicest parks in Stockholm and close to the waterfront. A joy to stroll around in this area. Both a youth hostel and a hotel in the premises.

Nice atmosphere, super fresh falafel even though I'd like more parsley and garlic in mine :) A tiny place, pretty much always crowded but it's part of the deal! Too bad there was nothing like this in Stockholm way back when I lived there..!

If you want to cook something extraordinary at home, preferably focused on the culinary traditions of northern Sweden with an international twist, you'll find everything you need here - plus really great and professional service. Price level is high and the quality is top notch. Same applies to the (small) restaurant part, Matbaren: small, extremely tasty dishes and a great selection of wine and beer. For two persons, you'll easily end up paying EUR 150 (I don't know about the upper limit!) but it's definitely worth the money. A special bonus is the great location by the waterfront; when you book the table, check if you can get the view as well :)

It takes a while to reach the hotel with the shuttle bus; then you walk a fair distance indoors through the big mall to the reception desk. In my room, the bathroom ventilation was very loud with an uncomfortable high pitched sound (no way to switch it off what I could see, this was separate from the AC/heating fan). Breakfast was ok - standard Swedish fare with lots of stuff to choose from - but the breakfast room chairs have a metal frame and they made an awful screeching sound when the chairs were moved even the slightest. Must be pretty bad when the room is packed with people. The temperature in the breakfast room and the whole mall was way too low for my liking (the personnel agreed but could not do anything about it) and the cool waffle machine had an alarm beep like a truck slammed in reverse gear. The guy at the reception desk did a good job, helpful and asked if I needed wireless Internet (which I think/hope would have been complimentary).
