Att vara överviktig kapar ett till tio år av den beräknade livslängden, enligt en ny stor studie. Risken för hjärt- och kärlsjukdomar, stroke, lungsjukdomar och cancer ökar, enligt forskarna.

Den har pekats ut som ett brittiskt syskon till Game of thrones. Nu kommer BBC:s episka medeltidsdrama The Last Kingdom till SVT. – Det är verkligen en riktigt bra historia, säger svenske Thomas W Gabrielsson som har en av rollerna i tv-serien.

Sir John Chilcot's report has the unenviable task of drawing a line under the deeply unpopular Iraq War.

Typical Tory. 
It’s great news that Theresa May is our new Prime Minister, isn’t it? I for one felt really warm and fuzzy inside when she made her speech all about being the servant of working people, the protector of struggling young people, the defender of the employee against asset-stripping companies and big business meanies, and the champion of social mobility.

Tony Blair says decision to take action made "in good faith" and he will take "full responsibility for any mistakes".

This is Britain's Vietnam. Not a good legacy for Mr Blair. The Middle East is and always has been a can of worms.

Story
Tagline
An Englishman living in Sweden with a passion for languages and Open Source software.
Introduction
My birth name is Terence Andrew Day. I was born in Birmingham and grew up in the West Midlands in a Black Country town called Oldbury. At 18 I left to study at Sheffield University, where I graduated in Germanic Studies. After graduation I moved to Denmark, got married, had children and became middle-aged. Lived in Denmark 30 years. I have recently relocated to Sweden.

I am a sci-fi and fantasy geek. I love watching old sci-fi and horror B-movies from the fifties and sixties. Trashy B-movies that are so bad, they are hilarious also find a place in my video collection. 

My favourite sci-fi author is Peter F. Hamilton. His universe is as complex and satisfying as Tolkien's Middle Earth. 

I switched to Linux about 8 years ago starting with Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon and regularly try out other distros. Currently running Kubuntu 16.04. 

Music
I listen to anything from classical to heavy rock and metal to folk and medieval.

Digital photography
Just an amateur having fun (see my photos). 

Computer gaming
I like to play fantasy RPG like Skyrim, The Witcher, Diablo & Starcraft. I don't spend so much time these days playing, there are so many other things to do!

Nature
I am a nature lover and admire all things bright and beautiful.

Cooking
I like to cook/bake and am always interested in trying out new recipes. Bake mostly sourdough bread.

Humour
British comedy mostly, we are world leaders in it after all! A sense of humour and not taking myself too seriously is what you will discover if you circle me.

Other interests
  • Kierkegaard
  • History
  • Literature
  • Languages
  • Gardening
  • Asperger (it runs in the family)
  • Science & technology
  • Art (frequently visit museums & galleries)
  • Board games like Scrabble, Trivial Pursuits
  • Enjoying life!

Bragging rights
I am really fortunate to live in a part of the world where the majority of people have a high standard of living and we enjoy peace and stability
Work
Occupation
I am a technical writer and translator
Skills
I am fluent in English (native tongue), German, Danish, Swedish and Spanish. Over 20 years of technical writing, editing, translating and DTP. Currently using Deja Vu X2, Framemaker, Arbortext, CMS, CorelDraw X4, Acrobat, Photoshop, Gimp, Inkscape.

Stayed for a total of 3 nights. Never again! The room was literally just a few meters from the railway tracks. There was a constant noise of trains stopping, whizzing by and track work that went on incessantly. Had to use ear plugs to sleep (I asked the receptionist who funny enough kept some in stock!). Very worn out and shabby hotel. My window was cracked and draughty, the tap in the bathroom just dribbled water, no pressure, hot water was about 10 minutes in coming, I could go on...

Tourist trap! The only way to get a good look at Gaudi's works in the park is by waiting at least 40 minutes and paying. Illegal vendors everywhere.

Have eaten there two times so far. Excellent food and good friendly service. Prices are also reasonable. You must try their meat pasties, aubergine with goat's cheese, duck ham, and not least a fantastic lemon sorbet! Very authentic and full of locals. Come around 19.00 before the rush! Menus are available in English too.

Excellent tapas and the best paella (you have to order this the day before, so remember to book!) I have had outside Spain. Nice atmosphere, good service and fair price all round. I can highly recommend this restaurant. I am definitely going again and bringing friends and family here.

Very good food and service! The owner is Danish! Small and cosy place that is also very popular with the locals. Authentic tapas bar where you feel welcome. I highly recommend it!

For those interested in Viking/Danish history, this place must be on your list! Apart from the actual ring fortress itself you can see a Viking village, a reconstructed iron age log house, and in the museum artefacts recovered during excavation of the fortress. The fortress is from the 10th century and presumably built during Harald Bluetooth's reign. Good museum shop and friendly staff.
