Does it really make any difference if you encounter him late at night or early in the morning or during daytime? :wink:

Arno, you are quite correct; "L.O.V.E" by WASP plays in the local pub jukebox on random... :ochesey: ..apart from which I do prefer mornings, but then again in Finland 'morning' defined by 'time when sun rises' in the winter is a little before noon, and in summer a little after midnight... :roll:

To stay in BAT's line...
Maybe it's not good at all then, to tell them not to go out in the dark... They wouldn't be able to go out for half a year! :mrgreen:

nope the canadians have not yet been frightened off----so keep it up. the postings are rather interesting. except i'm not to sure what i think about the idea of babysitting. none of us tend to do that over here, must be because we are just so incredibly irresponsible........

...or turned on the radio...

anyone for Janina Fostrell's vocal stylings? Or Gimmel?

Although gotta admit, Maija Vilkkumma and The Crash are quite tasty...

While I haven't been to Kontula, didn't spend too much time in Helsinki, I did spend 5 months in Finland last winter from November to April. And I am married to a Finnish man, and he is just the nicest man in the whole world. :D I would have been happy to stay there, but he wanted to come back to Australia. Today was 39 degrees Celcius. ~groan~

And I meant the metal music. You guys have so many great metal bands, which is wierd because you really have quite a small population.
