Long time

OK, several people have asked why I haven't posted in a while. As happens, things got real busy the last few months. Here's a sampling of what happened since my last post.

* European Radar Conference in Helsinki: lots of friends from Oklahoma and the U.S. visited. Good to see them, and host them in my new hometown.

* July 11: Bruce Springsteen rocks Helsinki for three hours and 31 songs, including Born in the USA, Dancing in the Dark, 10th Ave Freezeout, Rosalita, and Santa Claus is Coming to Town.

* Robert Marc and Trina Friedman from Oslo visit for the Bruce show. It was great meeting new friends.

* Li and Kaijun leave Helsinki for Minnesota.

* Great new movies (Kung Fu Panda, Wall-E) and great old movies (Ed Wood, O Brother Where Art Thou?, Cars, Big Fish)

* Rowing with the Vaisala team started up again.

* Aug. 18: Richard Thompson concert, along with friends, Gil and Merja.

* Aug. 22: Helsinki Festival, 40th Anniversary free concert in Senate Square: Finnish artists perform the songs of 1968. What a hoot! Helsinki really knows how to throw free parties!
