Some more about us wonderful Swedes.
We Swedes knows that we are the best people in the world and loves to tell that constantly to all the other people on this planet 🙂 There´s no problem we Swedes can´t solve in the absolute best way for every one 🙂 🙂 🙂 Sweden is the conscience of the world! But I guess You already knew that 🙂 🙂 🙂 For instance, we tell all the world how important it is to protect the indigenous people and their rights and urges them to sign that act in the UN. The problem is that we haven´t signed that ourselves. That would cost us to much money 🙂 🙂 🙂
We love to tell countries that is placed in the rainforest regions to protect their old forests, we urge people not to buy furniture’s made of trees from there, but we really don´t care about our own old forests. Up till now only a couple percent is protected here and those old forests usually grows high up in the mountains where the trees needs much more time to grow back, if they ever do.
We´ve always been taken care of by the state in one or the other way, so we really don´t like to take important decisions in our lives. We want the state to give us the solutions to all things we need to do. Or we ant the unions to deal with those problems that might concern our working life. But we don´t want to do any work ourselves, someone else should do the work for us.
We got really chocked some years ago when we suddenly had to decide about how 4% (I think it is that much) of the money for the retirement should be placed in the market. We got loads of fonds to choose from, everything from the safest bond funds to the riskiest mutual fonds. Most never choose anything so their money went to a safe bond fund. I did actually choose some half safe mutual fonds and saw how my money disappeared fast 🙂 🙂 🙂 So I changed and now the money is back again. To be honest, it´s not easy and one really has to be interested of funds and shares to know what to do. I hate it because this can make a huge change in how much money I get when retiring.
The wind is howling outside and the rain is pouring. If this had been a weekend evening I would have liked it 🙂 But they say the weather will change already till thursday. After that we´ll have sunshine and clear nights. Since the moons is going to be thin I think I´ll go out to look at the stars with the help from the book I got from Joyce. I´ve been reading it every night before I got to bed, perhaps that´s why I have had those funny/strange dreams 🙂 🙂 But for now I´ll settle for a cup of tea and some tv 🙂
Have a great day now!
