En olis ikinään kuvitellutkaan että tämänkin kuvan takana on ihan oikea tarina. Windows järjestelmän taustakuva vihreästä ruohikosta ja sinisestä taivaasta, on Charles O’Rearin kuvaama USAn Sonomassa tammikuussa 1998.
I would have never thought that there is a story to this very famous image. Of course there is. Taken by Charles O'Rear in January 1998 in Sonoma's Napa Valley USA.
"Napa Valley spent most of the 1990s trying desperately to curb the spread of phylloxera, a microscopic pest that was devastating its grapes. By the time the epidemic had run its course in 1999, some 50,000 acres of fields had been decimated. .. Endless rows of grapevines had been replaced by a lush carpet of grass, dotted here and there with wildflowers."

Mun CANON PIXMA tulostin ei toimi! / My CANON PIXMA printer is not working!
Virhe viesti UO52 "Tulostuspään tyyppi on väärä". Kone toimi aikaisemmin melko hyvin. Yritin resetoida, mutta se ei auttanut mitään. Netistä ilmeni että Canon onkin viety oikeuteen asiasta parisen vuotta sitten. Se siitä koneesta.
Error message UO52 "This type of printhead is incorrect". It used to work to almost perfection. I tried resetting but it didn't help. It seems Canon was sued for this several years ago. Just my luck.

COURSERAn kurssin Rokin Historia I innoittama, katsoin TV sarjan #TheMonkeys ensimmäisen jakson. Super hauska. Sarja on 60-luvulta.
Inspired by the Coursera course on the history of Rock l, I watched the first episode of the TV series The Monkeys. This was super funny.

Hyvää Uutta Vuotta! / Happy New Year!
I've made history! I went yesterday night to my first rock concert in 30 years! The City of Helsinki offered a free New Yea's show, which was televised, in Kansalaistori Helsinki. I totally enjoyed it.
Besides the circus and the dancers, there were three singers with their groups: Erja Lyytinen, Reino Nordin and Anssi Kela. Lyytinen and Nordin were totally unknown to me, but Lyytinen managed to play some amazing guitar! The woman rocks! Nordin is more pop like, but OK. The big one of course was Anssi Kela. Of the four songs he sang, three were some of my favorite ones. He and Lyytinen closed the show, just beforevthe fireworks, with a duo.

There is a wonderful exhibition at HAM, Helsinki Arts Museum, in Tennispalatsi in Helsinki. Tove Jansson's frescos, paintings by Nelimarkka, photographs by Ola Kolehmainen (churches, mosques and sinagogues), sculptures be Pekka Kauhanen and a short video by Erkka Nissinen. I must have taken the wrong turn, I managed to miss a thing or two. I went just with the intent of seing the Tove frescos, but got so much more out of it.
