PHOTO: Golden Hall at Stockholm City Hall, Site of the Nobel Laureate Ball

The stunning Golden Hall at Stockholm City Hall is one of the highlights on the tour of the city’s municipal center. However, it is just one of many things that make this building so famous. The 348-foot tall structure, built entirely of brick, was completed in 1923. Nearly eight million bricks were used in its construction. The three golden crowns atop the central tower are a reflection of the Swedish Coat of Arms. Stockholm’s City Hall is perhaps best known as the venue for the annual Nob...

Once We Lived Here at The Blue Room Theatre

On the surface, Once We Lived Here is the quintessential Aussie story, the stoic farming family (the McPhersons) doing it tough on their drought stricken property. A previous family tragedy has led to the family falling apart, but now a fast approaching crisis has brought them back to the homestead for what might be their last reunion. Set in the not too distant past, Once We Lived Here can be viewed as a microcosm of Australian life . [Author: [email protected] (Nita Teoh)]

Fire in the Italian Language

Dal paradiso all’inferno From Paradise to Inferno  “Che paradiso!” Italian friends often say when they visit the coast and grape-growing regions north of San Francisco.  Those of us who live in Sonoma and Napa counties agree—and feel lucky to make our homes amid such beauty.  However, we have learned how quickly a paradise can turn into an inferno. The fires (gli incendi) broke out in the middle of the night. The initial spark (la scintilla iniziale) may have come from a power line (una linea ...

October 2017 Instagram Photos

Autumn is full bloom and many of the photos this month reflect the foliage in the parks, courtyards, and sides of buildings. The leaves and ivy are turning burning red, mustard and ochre and piling on the ground. Fall fashion is also in full swing and I snapped a photo of a decadent pair of knee-high Saint Laurent boots studded with rhinestones. If you still haven’t followed me on Instagram yet, here are my tags.

Moving the burn pile

Four and a half years ago, we had the line of hazelnut trees along the north side of our back yard cut down to hedge size. I asked the guys who did the work to leave the trunks in piles in the yard so I could saw them into firewood. There were three big piles. One I took care of that year. The second, I think, I sawed up the following year. The third, however, sat there under our large fir tree for over four years. Until yesterday. You might be able to see the moved pile out in the garden plot...

Orange is the new white? Unique amber wine creates buzz

BURDETT, N.Y. (AP) — The sloping vineyards of New York’s Finger Lakes region known for producing golden-hued rieslings and chardonnays also are offering a splash of orange wine. The color comes not from citrus fruit, but by fermenting white wine grapes with their skins on before pressing — a practice that mirrors the way red […]

Why I’m Now a Carry-On Traveler

I swear I haven’t become that person. You know, that traveller that’s carry-on only and then talks non-stop about being carry-on only. I’ve always been able to detect this sense of superiority from much of the carry-on traveller crowd. But also: I have to hold my hands up here, too, because there have definitely been times in the past where I’ve spotted a traveller in Southeast Asia with a backpack totalling 100 litres and pointed it out at Dave with a snicker. I try not to be judgmental towards...
