A night out with Deep Purple

As a child, I remember my dad listening to Deep Purple. It's a band that I never got into during my early adulthood, even though I did enjoy the few times I'd hear them either at the billiard hall or occasional radio playing time on 93.7 The Arrow.

Now today, I am in awe that my daughter is asking Kingkeld to download Deep Purple onto her phone. It's freaking awesome actually.

I have the coolest kid.

Before the concert, we stopped off for a bite to eat. We found a really nice restaurant just down the street of K & B Hallen.

Warhammer 40,000

For more than a hundred centuries the Emperor has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Earth. He is the Master of Mankind by the will of the gods and master of a million worlds by the might of his inexhaustible armies. He is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with power from the Dark Age of Technology. He is the Carrion Lord of the Imperium, for whom a thousand souls die everyday, for whom blood is drunk and flesh eaten. Human blood and human flesh - the stuff of which the Imperium is made.
To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruellest and most bloody regime imaginable. This is the tale of those times. It is a universe you can live today - if you dare - for this is a dark and terrible era where you will find little comfort or hope. If you want to take part in the adventure then prepare yourself now. Forget the power of technology, science and common humanity. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for there is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter and the laughter of thirsting gods. But the universe is a big place and, whatever happens, you will not be missed...

Saturday after my Danish language class, Kingkeld and I joined Jo and Steffen at Medborgerhuset for an hour of Warhammer miniature battle. (I think that's what it's called.)

At first I thought the idea was a little strange, but after seeing the kids and game in action, I found it to be quiet enjoyable. I think this would be a fun hobby and great social gathering for Dee.

The battle between Steffen and Jesper.

Area 51

This photo was taken at one of the entrances at Slagelse's hospital.

It was such an uncharming entrance... a bit on the creepy side. We were expecting to see zombies walking around.

This past Friday, we spent the evening with Jo, Steffen, Angel, the Twig, and Mark.

It first started with a tour of the Trelleborg ruins, one of six viking ring castles.

We arrived first and enjoyed seeing Angel and Mark prep Twig.

He is finally situated and happy.

This longhouse was reconstructed in 1948.

Inside of the longhouse. I took this shot with a slow shutter speed.


I have to admit I love taking pictures of these two girls. Their quietness and solitary souls are so beautiful.

Steffen was a damned good guide. Thanks!

The Twig

Last night we had dinner with Angel, Mark, lille twig, and some new friends. As usual, it was wonderful.

Kuddos to you Angel. You are such a great hostess.

I have to admit, I really enjoy playing with the twig. He's a sweet baby... when he's not in a teething mode. : )

Happy Twig.

Very happy Twig with his stinky foot.

Sleepy Twig.

Kronborg Castle

Yesterday we went to visit Kronborg Castle in a town called Helsingor, where Hamilet is supposed to have happened in Shakespear's tragic story.

Originally, Kronborg castle was a fortress named Krogen, built about 1420 by Eric of Pomerania. It was later rebuilt by Frederick II in 1585 who renamed it Kronborg. In 1629, two careless workers, who were probably "toasted" to the max, as well as playing with fire, burnt the castle down. Only the Chapel survived. 1629, Christian IV's crew did their best to restore it.

I must admit, it was pretty amazing to see it with my own eyes.

(I love this picture and was glad to have caught it with rain clouds above.)

Another one of my favorite pictures.
(Kinkeld, Dee, Jo, and Steffen.)

Are these canons facing Sweden? Not that they'd reach.

Dee is the new guard.

We were waiting in line to buy tickets.

A fun key hole to a chiffonier dresser.

We finally made it into the grand ballroom. We actually walked into a tour group and their guide.

The grand ballroom.

This castle had restrooms installed within. I guess something different for that time. Anyway, Kingkeld is demonstrating his usage.

Monkey see, monkey do do.

Entrance to the chapel.

I was kinda disappointed that there was no "headless troll" underneath this... such as the one in Gavnoe's chapel...

but there was a Dee hiding in the pews.

Waiting for me to come out of the restroom.

Entering the catacombs of Kronborg.

Dee... darkness... and one flashlight.

These were from Green landers... and out of bone.

At the top of the tower.

After the rain cleared, Kronborg seemed more friendlier.
