Today, I tried to see the city of Copenhagen. Tried anyway. Once upon a time in National Geographic there was a Norwegian joke about Denmark. “Stand on a box, and you can see Norway!”. I took that story to heart today, and looked for the tallest ladder, I could find. My neighbor just shook his head and muttered, “Another Crazy American to deal with”. I … Continue reading The Tallest Ladder, I Could Find
In about a week from now a new invasion will be hitting Denmark! Yes, Canadians are swooping in over the gentle Danish Skies, with their French Murmurings and Foreign Expectations! What should we do? Hide the kids, or barricade the doors? Sic the dog(s) on them, or deny them entry to the rest of the Country? What if we restricted them to Copenhagen? That would … Continue reading Copenhagen Calling – Don’t Answer that Phone!
Where are we going today, Papa Smurf? Why to Skagen, the top of Denmark! Source: Google Maps I once told my niece, who was visiting Denmark from USA.

There are still a number of empty fields here in the outskirts of Aalborg, Denmark’s 4th largest city. There was a battle fought here in 1534 by a fellow named Skipper Clement. He was … Continue reading The Ghosts that Haunt Me
My PC crashes taking my Windows 10 with it. That might be good? My Cellphone will only show French, forcing me to learn that language. The sun decided to shine, when I had a day off. The house didn’t need fixing, and the car ran to perfection. My children thanked me for being the Father that I try to be. My bank called and told … Continue reading What If, the Unthinkable Happened?
Today’s soup doesn’t really exist, so unless your imagination is very colorful, then you might be disappointed along the way? Stew can be many things. Sometimes, I don’t even use meat which causes most people to make the sign of the cross and whisper “Vegan” to one another. I’ve tried to tell them over the years that by using lentils and Bulgar, or another grain … Continue reading Fantasy Chicken Stew with Pomegranate Flourishes
