My identity on facebook has been stolen. Some very nice friends sent me messages and told me that someone had posted in my name. I hope everything is fine now. I am working for internet freedom, and thereby also, internet stability. Of course I get upset when something like this happens. Anyone should. Technology has developed a lot the last decades. I remember when the first cellular phone entered the market. Big as a portfolio. Furthermore, the very first computer. Fax machines. And so on. The world has changed and has become digital. I hope these hackers will leave me alone now. We need internet stability.
On the political horizon changes are ongoing. Chancellor Angela Merkel is leaving her position after almost two decades representing Germany 🇩🇪. She has done a lot with her safe and smooth approach to other politicians throughout the world. Similar to Germany, Norway 🇳🇴 is changing from Erna Solberg to Jonas Gahr Støre. Solberg has also done a great job during her eight years as prime minister of Norway. The news papers have been overloaded with celebrations from Norway since they have decided to return to normal life after 1,5 years with corona restrictions.
Norway is celebrating non-pandemic restrictions. In addition, I was very happy to learn that ABBA has reunited during this pandemic. They released new music in London recently. To share some positive spirit, similar to Norway, I browsed the internet and found some ABBA.

Another week has passed. I get a little stressed because autumn has started, which means that winter soon will be here. Therefore, I take the opportunity to take Lady & Molly on lots of walks. Lady has a little pain in one of her paws so she gets anti-inflammatory medicine. Molly, on the other hand, runs so much so I really hope she does not hurt herself. However, both are fine and they are enjoying the fall!
And to mention something about myself, I jogged a little this weekend. I was pleased that I could enjoy the nice weather without getting too out of breath. Some form of fitness still exists despite the pandemic.

20 years ago New York and the whole USA were subjected to religious military terror attacks. In fact, the whole world was affected. I remember exactly where I was and what I did. At that time I did my PhD studies at the department of Pharmacology in Göteborg. It was difficult to understand that the terror attack was real. This could only happen in Universal Studios in Hollywood. World trade center in New York was gone and New York City fire department had to work 24 hours.
Memories have faded, but the traces of Ground zero are still there. People travel by plane again. Life could not be stopped.
Religion is, by no doubt, politics. In a week I will go voting. This is a political election for members in the church in Sweden. It is a little strange since religion should be separated from politics, but I will go voting since we live in a democratic country. I am very glad though, that every religion is allowed in Sweden. Not only christians.
I continue with my dog walks. Molly runs and Lady is more of a smooth walker. Sharing the song “walk of life” with Dire Straits.
Stay safe 🐾
I am very happy that Pfizer and other drug companies have contributed to the development of vaccines in this pandemic. Drug companies need to help the community when needed in emergencies. And maybe the American president’s words helped to speed up research and production. These vaccines may not be perfect, but at least, the number of severe cases of COVID-19 has decreased. However, I continue with pandemic habits and I do wear a medical face mask when I go by bus, train etc. A lot of people are affected by an ordinary cold right now and maybe I can avoid infection by following these habits.
This weekend I have been walking Lady & Molly. They are so happy to go for walks. I helped them to clean their ears, a common problem for dogs. As far as I know, only one dog in Sweden has fallen ill in COVID-19.
Stay safe 🐾
