Trosa Ultra Backyard 2018

Förra året dök det upp massor av löpare längs Trosas ågator och nu är det dags igen. Den 28 april går starten i Trosa Ultra Backyard. Loppet pågår i mer ön ett dygn om det finns löpare som klarar mer än 24 varv.

Last year a lot of runners showed up on the streets in Trosa Sweden. It’s time again. Trosa Ultra Backyard starts April 28 and goes on during more than 24 hours if some runners make more than 24 laps.

En kul och publikvänlig form av lopp. Spännande att följa hur många som orkar ända in till sista varvet.

A fun race to watch. Exciting to see how many that last the final lap.

Här kommer lite info från TUBs hemsida. Gå in där och läs mer.

Here’s some info about the race from TUBs webbsite where you can read more. It’s in Swedish, but maybe it’s possible to translate to your language.

Vad är en Backyard Ultra?
Detta är en annorlunda typ av ultramarathon, där varken tid eller avståndet är förutbestämt.
Loppet sker på en 6706 m slinga som börjar vid 11:00. Nästa start sker på varje heltimme. De löpare som misslyckas med att slutföra ett varv inom en timme kommer att avsluta tävlingen vid senast avklarat varv. Man måste ha klarat av minst ett varv för att vara med på resultatlistan. Löpare som kan fortsätta är delad etta varje varv. Vinnaren kommer att vara den sista löparen som slutför ett varv inom tidsfristen.

What is a Backyard Ultra?
This is a different type of ultramarathon, where neither time nor distance is predetermined.
The race takes place on a 6706m loop starting at 11:00. The next start takes place on each hour. The runners failing to complete a lap within one hour will finish the race at the last completed lap. You must have completed at least one lap to be included in the results list. Runners that can continue are divided one every turn. The winner will be the last runner to complete a lap within the deadline.

I made a drawing inspired from last years race.

Who lives in the tree? Vem bor i trädet?

Found a nest in a tree. I wonder who lives there?

Fann ett fågelbo i en björk. Jag undrar vem som bor där. Får hålla koll och se om jag kan lista ut det.

Crotchet Virka Pluto

I challenged myself. Crotchet Pluto with a pattern in Spanish. I’m Swedish with very little knowledge about Spanish language but a little more knowledge about crotchet techniques. I had a little help from google translate also.

I found the pattern over at http://amigurumies.blogspot.se/2013/09/baby-pluto.html.

You should try this. It’s fun 🙂

Jag utmanade mig själv. Virka Pluto utifrån ett mönster på spanska. Jag kan inte särskilt mycket spanska men vet ett och annat om virkning. Google translate hjälpte mig också aningen på traven.

Jag hittade mönstret hos http://amigurumies.blogspot.se/2013/09/baby-pluto.html

Testa ni också. Det är kul att virka 🙂
This is the result of my crotchet challenge. Så här ser resultatet av min utmaning ut.

Liv 3.0 Life 3.0

Max Tegmark har skrivit ännu en mycket intressant bok. Liv 3.0.

Max Tegmark has written another very interesting book. Life 3.0.

I think we all should read that book. It’s important to all of us. It’s about how we can or can’t choose to deal with future development of AI.

Den här boken borde vi alla läsa. Den innehåller viktiga tankegångar krobg hur vi kan och inte kan hantera framtidens utveckling av AI.


It’s a mind travel through the possibilities of AI and how mankind fits in a future AI world or even universe.

Vi får följa med på en tankeresa kring möjligheterna med AI och hur vi människor kan anpassa oss efter en värld eller till och med ett universum med AI.

Reading that book gave me lots of thoughts I couldn’t imagine that I had about AI before.

Bokens innehåll öppnade många nya tankegångar kring AI som jag inte hade fått utan att läsa boken.

Read the book! That’s all I can say. Your future can depend on how we together develop AI.

Läs boken! Din framtid beror på hur vi tillsammans utvecklar AI.

No 34 drawing in my goals for 2018

We’re still in a spaceship lost in space. One man worship the female pilot. Here nails glows like lamps he says in the poem I’m getting inspiration from to this drawing.

It’s a bad photo of the drawing, but I hope you can se something anyway.

19:40 in April

Lights coming back. That means Spring.


How does it look like over at your place in the evening? Is it light or dark?

Ladybird on my doorstep 

The first ladybird of the year. At least the first I have seen this Spring.

As a kid I thought they were fantastic beautiful little fairy tale creatures. 

As a grown up I know they can be millions and then they are not fun at all.

In Swedish we call them KeyMaiden in a direct translation. Nyckelpiga in Swedish.

End Emission Era!

Do you want to participate in the one true challenge of this generation?

To end emission era 

And not only that

You will then also participate in Beginning of the Earth ReBirth Era

Wouldn’t that be nice if we all give it a try to end our own emissions?

Together we could make a change.

One little Ant alone can’t build an anthill, but millions of ants can build huge anthills.

So, one little human being can’t end emission era alone, but millions of human beings together can end emission era.

If you don’t know how you can make a difference, check out the questions at Climate acoount and find out how your carbon footprint looks like and what you can do to improve your footprint.

I’m not saying we will succeed in a day or two, but maybe we can start something that next generation will be thankful for that we did.

This is the drawing that started my thoughts and the challenge above. Feel free to share it as long as you do it in the meaning to spread the challenge.

Weekend WP pub open!


Here we all meet, as we are, in peace. You drink as much as you want, you will never get drunk or unfriendly. We all meet here to have a nice chat with eachother. If you want some music you can paste a videolink in the comments. If you want something to drink and/or eat, just let the bar know what you wish. You will get it.

This is the pub of our dreams. Enjoy and stay as long as you like. Leave comments if you like to talk and if you don’t, just follow along as a silent reader. You are all welcome.

Let’s start the weekend now!

I begin with wishing a song from Nils Landgren funk unit. Finish what we started.

Welcome to the pub of our dreams, the World Peace pub 🙂

They’re back so that must mean Spring

We have one really sure Spring sign in city of Trosa Sweden. They make a lot of noice around the clock, they occupy the roofs and they attack every one coming near their kids when the kids starting to discover the world outside the nests.

I Trosa city har vi ett mycket säkert vårtecken. De är högljudda dygnet runt, de ockuperar taken och de attackerar varenda en som kommer nära deras ungar när ungarna börjar utforska världen utanför boet.

I’m talking about seagulls. Jag pratar om fiskmåsarna.


Normally they live out at sea. But they have discover the idea with nesting in town. No white tailed eagles that eat their kids. All though they have other enemies on ground. The fox likes their kids, so the city nesting isn’t always a good idea. Yes we have foxes in the middle of the city.

Normal lever fiskmåsarna ute på sjön (Östersjön). De har dock upptäckt att de får vara ifred från havsörnen inne i stan. Men istället har de fiender på marken, som gärna gör deras ungar till ett skrovmål. Inne i stan stryker nämligen räven omkring.

The seagulls come every year to nest and now they’re here, so that must means Spring is finally here too.

När fiskmåsarna kommer in över stan och landar på skorstenarna brukar våren komma, så låt oss hoppas att våren vinner över vintern.

The seagulls are interesting to study, so I don’t mind they’re coming in here to town, but they are annoying when they attack. But what would you have done if your kids were in danger?

Det är fascinerande att studera måsarna och se deras ungar växa, men de är aningen jobbiga när de attackerar. Fast vad skulle du ha gjort om dina ungar var i fara?
