Happy everyone! PeekaBEAR! Playful predator appears to hide behind a tree in #Finland (but his fluffy ears and sharp claws give the game away) 
Daily Mail Online
The Brown bear clasped the trunk with both paws while stood on his back legs and playfully poked his head out as photographer Jari Peltomaki caught the moment on camera in a Finnish forest.

Drink too much #coffee? Blame your genes. I have no chance with my Finnish roots! Wonder if it's the same for #vodka? http://time.com/44648…/genetics-coffee-consumption-caffeine/
Genes may explain why some people are more responsive to caffeine

Bragging rights
It seems I love studying. I have an MSc in Economics from Hanken in Helsinki, MA in Creative Writing from Bath Spa University and I'm Member of Association of Accounting Technicians. My long suffering children are used to their mother having her nose in a book, though these days it's more likely to be a fiction title rather than boring accountancy. Oh, and I've been married to the English sailor over 25 year now. That's worth bragging about if nothing else?
