  1. Yep. I was there at the summer (in July) up in the forrests in the north,
    where we did some camping in the wild. Anti-mosquito gel, and a mask around
    your head will help. The last thing you want to do is to go to do your
    business in the wild. You get eaten alive :))
    But, at least I saw Santa and Rudolph for real, and know they exist!

    And you have footage to show to us to substantiate that claim, Martin?
     
  3. No. But by golly I swear, he lives in Rovanimi in his summer residence.

    This is a webcam of his house:

    The actual reason I wanted to go there was because there is a lake where
    you could do a submarine-trip in a tourist submarine (1992). However, the
    sub was sold to Spain so that one didn't happen, but then we discovered
    about Santa's house, and went there. The fun thing is the post-office where
    they keep letters from children all over the world, in letterboxes,
    arranged by country. It seems that if you write on your letter "To Santa,
    North Pole", most of the mail gets sent to there.

    I lost the footage because I tried to compress it to
    1-bit-148.50MHz-1920x1080pix, and then accidently erased the original
    footage on my computer. And the original tape is gone, because the cat
    grabbed it, and ran away with it. Sorry for that :">

    cheers

    Having spent a good deal of time in arctic portions of Alaska, I can say
    with itchy certainty that mosquito's have a very annoying presence
    during the short summer season. In fact, there were so damn many of
    them, I wondered what the hell they ate? I expected to see an occasional
    caribou lying flat on the ground completely drained of blood. (That
    said, it is not unknown that a caribou heard will occasionally fleet in
    mass from a a particularly bad mosquito cloud.) I would wager that
    Finland is not immune to this situation.
     
  5. In Canada, children know to use the correct Postal Code: H0H 0H0

    That way their mail goes to the REAL Santa's workshop.

    Yes, I seem to recall reading about that somewhere. By the way, I do
    appreciate the rather unusual 25 second update, as opposed to the
    typical 30-second Webcam update interval. Christmas here in the States
    is the 25th of December, so 25 seconds seems appropriate.
    I'll keep that in mind.
    Here we would say "the dog ate it". :)

    My one and only trip to Lapland was in the late summer pf 1972, and no bugs
    of any type were an issue. We never did any camping or outdoor living, so I
    imagine we were not alerted to the danger by our tour guides, or perhaps the
    bugs have only become prevalent in the ensuing 34 years. I must confess that
    I never thought of mosquitoes as being a particular problem in very cold
    climates.....

  8. Thanks for the etymology lesson, I enjoyed it (I read it all, but hey,
    I am interested in such things!).

    Early in the piece, I had wondered if the kk in Jukka reflected the ch
    (pronounced as in German "ach") in the Hebrew name Jochanan, but I now
    think the argument presented about the Swedish G is more compelling.
     
  9. :)

    Actually, at that time, it was the *first* thing anyone had said to me
    - but what the heck...

    So it wasn't a bad day, really - and thanks for asking.
     

  10. Any day you wake up is better than the alternative!

  11. Otherwise I wouldn't have answered your post :)
     

  12. I caught a bad case the flu years ago, and didn't wake up for over
    five days. It really did a number on my health. I lost over 25 pounds in
    those five days, and couldn't walk for a month.

  13. Man! It surely gives you new respect for that sunrise each morning...

    I can see what motivated you to make the other post above!

    I just got this year's flu shot last week...but you never know.
     

  14. I'm supposed to get one from the VA when they get their supply. I
    get that, and a new pair of bifocals every year. :)
