A short intro

Hi,

just thought to introduce myself, have been reading the forum for a while now, thanks for the good posts!

I'm a Finnish male (husband and 1 time father as well) working and living in Canton Zug. Been here almost a year now and enjoying it. I like the outdoors, occasional (spontaneous) beers and low quality humour(hence the avatar).

I am currently debating whether to buy a motorcycle or not. It would propably be more fun on the mountain roads than our people mover...

Cheers,
Pekka

Pekka - welcome and yes, your intro is a little belated

still, you're Finnish and you can likely drink us all under the table so that's ok

Yes, The Great Cornholio is certainly a great character! There's also a little Homer in all of us.

Now, when we've started with TV, anyone into the Prisoner? I got the DVD box last year and noticed that it actually gets better the older you become. Afterwards the old Iron Maiden records sound better as well.

Cornholio! I need teeepeee for my bunghole!

And, yes, The Prisoner improves more and more with age.

Re: A short intro

Hello,

I've now managed to haul myself and the family back to Finland. I would like to thank you all for a very informative and fun forum, especially the admins.

I will still keep on reading of course (how can I not). Some of the moving related stuff is still open, I will contribute when they eventually get solved.

Had some very interesting experiences at the German border with the moving van, it will be a story in itself...

Cheers,
Pekka
