Tekstboks: Fishing and the outdoors

Fishing is one of my passions, the tranquility of going on a camping trip in the woods, a little lake and a camp fire. Rest and recreation in its true element.

 

Although my favourite is fly-fishing i also enjoy fishing with other equipment as well as salt water fishing.

 

 

Some pictures from our trips

Tekstboks: Litterature

Although i canít always seem to find the time to sit down with a good book, when i finally do i seldom regret. I enjoy variety, so i read everything from history to novels, ranging from the supernatural to a good old fashioned criminal story.

 

But i do have some favourite authors:

 

J.R.R. Tolkien

The Hobbit

Lord of the Rings

The Silmarillion† (completed by Christopher Tolkien)

Children of Hurin (completed by Christopher Tolkien)

 

Robert Ludlum

 

There are too many good ones to mention but i guess the most popular now is the collection of Jason Bourne which has become a great hit on the big screen.

 

Stephen King

 

The king of nailbiting horror stories, also too many to mention.

 

Larry McMurtry

 

Comanche Moon

Streets of Laredo

Lonesome Dove

Dead Mans Walk

 

Charles Dickens

 

An author that everybody should pursue.

 

Dan Brown

 

The DaVinci Code

 

John Grisham

 

Grips you from the first page, has quite a few bestsellers.

 

James Herriot

 

Famous Yorkshire Vet that has put his experiences into books, tells a great story.

 

Raymond Khoury

 

The Last Templar

Tekstboks: The House & Garden

I moved into the house in 1997, my first real home and i have spent the last tens years refurbishing.

 

Everything from carpenter work, to landscaping. I truly enjoy seeing change and have spent many hours around and about the house, its a great investment beside the fact that it keeps me busy. I guess i am a jack of all trades and master of none, but i get 10 out of 10 for effort!

Some pictures of the everchanging project

Tekstboks: Music

Although i havent got a musical bone in my body, i still love music and could not live without it. I have a wide taste that spans from classical to bluegrass, my collection is vast and this is a list of some of my favourite artists and bands:

 

 

When it comes to films, my interests are widespread.

Star Wars I-VI

 

The Bourne series

 

Indiana Jones

 

Titanic

 

Brokeback Mountain

Tekstboks: Texas Holdem

Like many people around the world, i have also taken up poker on the internet. Like everyone else i complain about bad beats and hit the ceiling once every blue moon when i get a royal flush. All in all i enjoy the strategy of the game and hopefully one day i will have a seat at the WSOP.

Tekstboks: AIRBRUSH

Some of my efforts as an airbrush artist, its a start at least! Three of them are in my sonís bedroom and the Tweety is in the workshop.

A special thanks to the guys at www.airbrush.no who got me interested!
