Many followers and friends have contacted me to ask what have happened to the dog Paow. And I can now announce that the danger is over. Paow will miraculously survive the horrible attack by a Golden Retriever. The end of last week we all where in chock, but it changed and he is now recovering quickly at home. A true happiness for all of us!

My son and his partner have a wonderful pomeranian guy named Paow. Yesterday something happened that made our lives shaken dramatically. Paow was attacked by a Golden Retreiver, who treated our beloved hottie like a cloth. Yesterday evening was completely in tears. I was surprised of my reactions and how much he means to us...

Now our darling is fighting for his life and let us all pray for his recovery, yes he can ...

Back in business!

To lifePosted by Per-Olof Diderot Sun, July 22, 2012 20:10:48

What a strange summer so far! Luckily I went to both wonderful Champagne and the Mamma Mia Island Skiathos. Filled with new strength I take on the new second half of the year with great joy. Soon I will publish a full report from Champagne with interesting comments from the latest vintages and reportage from both new and recurring contacts. I'm also going to present new great wines in the near future. Hope you finally get a summer worth the name... "I am now back in business, but soon ready for new adventures"!

In a bloggers mind!

To all who dare to follow intuition and fulfil your dreams!

"The intuitive mind is a sacred gift
and a rational mind is a faithful servant.
We have created a society that honours the servant
- and has forgotten the gift. "
Albert Einstein

Writing a blog takes time, sometimes gives very weak echo, but still you continue to write. I have wondered about this phenomenon and why I spend at least one hour per day with blogging and accompanying twitter.

To express your own opinion, share experiences and feelings, gives a lot of energy back even though I and many other bloggers often wonder if anyone actually reads what you write. Of course I can follow the blog statistics which fortunately (in my case) increases.

The happiness of writing is a huge motivator. I sometimes remind me of the euphoria I feel in that moment, when words ends up on the right spot and you feel proud for things you have expressed. Free as a butterfly, I can fly where my mind takes me. With no one else telling me what to do. Therefore, I will blog / tweet /?? as long as I live!

I urge you to get in touch with your favourite bloggers. If only a small word, that means more than you can ever imagine ...

Vesterhavsost från Thise Mejeri

To lifePosted by Per-Olof Diderot Wed, October 12, 2011 20:36:54
Can you be in love with cheese?
Just have to tell you about a cheese from Thise Dairy in Roslev, Denmark. They produce an organic cheese from pasteurized milk. With Bovbjerg lighthouse and the roaring North Sea as its closest neighbors, the cheese is stored, breathing the salty sea air from a ventilation system that is blown into the cheese cellar.

The cheese is firm in texture and almost crystallized. The taste is divine with fine acidity and saltiness (as taken from the North Atlantic) and the flavour is there for a long time.

Perfect with Amarone, both on land and at sea. (Swedish translation of "at sea" is "till havs")

A day of grief!

A day of grief!
Feels unreal how a person can do such an atrocity against their fellow human beings. In the unimaginable, a huge wave of sadness washes over me for all spilled human lives, many young people in the beginning of their life path. I will well never forget this sad moment in life.
