This week

My fellows and readers,

this have been a real fast moving week, been visiting customers and upgrading their software, done some web page programming, visiting an old cemetery in Porvoo with a group of genealogists.
On the old cemetery in Porvoo you can find the grave of one of my ancestors Johan Holm, born 1789, better known as "Näse-Jutte". His wife Eva Amalia Krook is also buried in the same grave.
On saturday I will attend the spring seminar of the Finnish Genealogical Society's board as an member of the board. The older one gets, it seems that genealogy's becoming more and more important, knowing our ancestors and relatives is more and more important in our hectic world where the closest relatives lives far away from you.
Just came to my mind that the Armenian Eurovision Song Contest song is in some way very good (simply my taste), it could of course have something to do with the fact that some of my ancestors are originating from there centuries ago.
Now the focus is on our upcoming 60th anniversary Family Reunion of the Calamnius Family in july in Helsinki.
Life isn't real without less wanted news, recently I got a very sad message, one of my really good friends "Ismo" had passed away, I do miss him very much as do my partner also, on the other hand we feel very lucky that his children are also our very good friends, and we wish them strength in their sorrow. Velho and Velhotar will attend the ceremony in the beginning of june.

My Library.

Walking in from my garden today, I had a short glimps on my library, a few walls filled with books. It hitted me that someone could analyze the person based on their library, so here are your analyzing material.

First it hitted me that I have nearly 40 books by Alexander Dumas, one of my favourite writer, one of his sons wifes have roots in Finland, surname Knorring..

Second, there is a lot of books about exrtaterrestial things, like books of von Däniken and others like Manning, Berlitz and Kampman. There is also pure Sience Fiction as Arthur C. Clarks’s books, and classics like Franz Kafka and George Orwells 1984.

You can also find the follow up on Alexander Dumas “The Count of Monte Cristo” called “Världens herre” ‘ The master of the World’ by Adolf Mützelburg from 1863, part I and II, both very good on continuing the story in the spirit of Alexander Dumas.

There can also be found over ten books by Övre Richter-Frich, a Norwigian writer making a adventure series about a guy called Jonas Field from the later part of the 50’s

There is also books from the later parts of the 1800’s, like H Rider Haggard’s Ayshya and others by the same writer, very interesting books about the reinkarnation and the adventures about finding Ayshya that they already meet in a previuous life..

Then there is of course a few basic erotical books, like the ones by Marquise de Sade and the all famous Fanny Hill book.

There can also be found many classical books like Robert Louise Stevensons Threasure Island and other similar books.

All over this I have numerous books about history and familys that made the history, of course from my own point of view.
