First answer to my draw a stickman challenge! I think this is a great drawing. I played football (or soccer as the americans call it) in my youth and that was so much fun, so this drawing takes me back to memory lane. For comments, please visit original post/Anna
Ritu’s post Dark mornings and our talk in the comments there made me do this drawing.
What do you say about such alarm clock?
I wish I had one like that some days. But not every day. I like my work and I actually like early mornings too. But the time between sleep and awake are so nice so it takes time for me to like the awake state.
One of my Save Trosa nature friends, Ingrid Benson has done a fb post on Mötesplats0156
where she thanks a Trosa municipality citizen for bringing the issue of high debts up for the Trosa municipality.
Here’s what the Swedish text in the fb post says:
Thank you Pär Abrahamsson for reappearing Trosa municipality’s debt issue. Soon it’s time to advance at least 90 million (SEK) to pay the new big road project. Where will that money come from? In March 2017, development agreements had been signed with the municipality for 99 of the 670 properties needed to finance the road. DEBTS RISKS TO INCREASE IF THE NEW BIG ROAD PROJECT IS NOT CANCELED.
Trosa debts again
Municipally economy In SN (local newspaper) on October 3 you can read that Trosas municipality council Daniel Portnoff relaunches the municipality’s indebtedness. He claims that if you combine the accounts of the municipalities with the unrecognized pension liabilities that all municipalities have, then Trosa’s debt would be similar to the media municipality.
Now you do not have to believe. The numbers are at SCB (Sweden statistics bureau) and if you do the calculation, Trosa municipality is in place 37. It is obviously better than the thirteenth place that the municipality is on if you look at the posted debts, yet about 100 places from the center.
It is troublesome that the municipal leadership is living in faith and bases its action that debt is normal. It is not. Attempting the public to believe the same by presenting alternative facts about easily verifiable amounts is even more noticeable.
Trosa is deeply indebted and it will have consequences when interest rates are normalized. Pär Abrahamsson Vagnhärad
So we have local politicians with their own versions of alternative facts 😉
But we also have citizens with enough knowledge to recognize alternative facts when they appear 🙂

I found a Trosa article about the issue of change the name of a house that we been calling The people’s house for about 80 years. Recently the Trosa Municipality took over the responsibility for the house and wanted to change the name. They asked the people and you can read about it in Swedish here
Since a month ago, residents of Trosa Municipality have submitted proposals for a new name for The people’s house. We have taken note of the submitted nominations and state the following:
The people’s house (in swedish Folkets Hus) has received 107 votes and other nominations 1-2 votes each.
We caught an interesting motivation among the many proposals to keep the name. “Since 1936-37, the People’s House has existed for community life, cultural activities to have the opportunity to meet in celebration and joy as well as to exercise their democratic opportunities.”
Now it remains to be seen whether the municipality chooses to follow the majority’s wishes or remains at the line to rename the house.

Welcome to this nature themed post on aspi.blog. The title is formed from the initial letters of snakes, butterflies and slugs, all of which feature prominently.
SOME SWEDISH STUFF
Of course when posting about nature and mentioning Sweden, Annais going to feature prominently, but also featured here is the work of two Swedish photographers, Ingrid Benson who specialises in butterflies and John Jonasson who photographs reptiles.
A SERIES OF BUTTERFLY POSTS
Some of you may remember that I reblogged a post from fargaregardsanna about butterflies in and around Trosa that was marked as the first of a series. Well that series now runs to six posts, four posts based on the work of Ingrid Benson and two more featuring some of Anna’s own photographs. I now provide links to all of them:
Danny’s questions always makes me think. I don´t always have wise answers, but that is not the point either. The idea with questions like this one is to make us think, not find the right answer. I can always be a better person, there´s always more to do. Life is an ongoing project of improvement, I think. Danny´s post is also an example of a post where you should read the comments and not only the post it self. It´s in the comments the post grow in its content.

What a wonderful bus stop! I wish we had those versions here in Sweden too. I would miss the bus, but that’s not an issue if you have a good book to blame it on 😉 For comments please visit original post/Anna
