In Denmark we have many Bank Holidays in the spring. Not many people are actively Christians but they would be reluctant to see these holidays cancelled. One of these special days is this so-called “Great Day of Prayer” this Friday 30 days after Easter. The day before on Thursday evening we have a tradition is that you get warm fresh […]
4 May 1945 at 8.35 p.m. was the moment where the message from the Free London Press was read aloud in the Danish radios. Those who lived and heard it will never forget and we who were born in the years afterwards still become very moved when listening to that speaker’s voice. He was suddenly interrupted as the message from […]
I have just completed a 7 week free music course on “The World of String Quartets” at the online course “Coursera”. Only when I began to take notes did I pass the questions from each week’s program. Coursera offers courses from many different universities in all subjects. This one was for the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia in U.S.A. […]

Lance teaches on business and entrepreneur issues but just as much in how to increase in your calling whatever that might be.

I connect the bird singing with happy moments in my childhood. Springtime and playing outside. (I have a post on this on my Danish blog, which can be Google translated.) In Denmark our spring comes slowly so that there is time to enjoy each kind of spring flower while the bird singing increase until about Midsummer where it sadly […]
Lawrence (1899) and John (1906) were born in Iowa and North Dakota, respectively by immigrants from Denmark. Their father and mother, two small sisters came to the States to seek new possibilities for a better life in 1893. This immigrant Peder Jorgensen who came to the States in 1893 is my husband’s great-grandfather’s brother. Henry, my husband and Leah are third cousins […]
Today I saw the first daffodil on my running trail. I know it is seen earlier in milder areas but I was touched when spotting it here in Denmark in my neighborhood today.
Inspired from a fellow blogger Jaye Marie who wrote the following on her post on Relationships : I have always been fascinated by relationships.
