Samu’t Sari & Sundry

I have been totally busy these days doing the books (accounting—YUK). I am not good at it and I do not think I will ever be. I just have no choice! I am so problematic these days because I need to find a new accountant. It is unfortunate that Owen, who is based in Singapore, cannot help me with my accounting problems as he is half way around the world.

Samu’t Sari and Sundry – Owen FV

One of my first blogger friends is Owen. I found his blog while surfing for other blogs to visit on Read about his globetrotting, experiences and opinions.


One of the things I notice here in Norway is that they have all sorts of clubs or organization and one of them is Flight Simulator Club. We were in their annual weekend get together because my husband was helping out at the cockpit (so nothing would go bananas!).

One of the organizers is an SAS Employee and was able to borrow an MD90 aircraft. The attendees slept on the plane (if they ever slept at all the whole weekend!)

John and the kids at the cockpit
Participants flying — you won’t believe how organized it is.
