Interesting fact, Vevey in Switzerland became the village where the great Charlie Chaplin decided to settle down with his wife after being denied entry into the US (due to McCarthyism).  Living in Switzerland had a positive effect on the great actor, director and filmmaker who had four children, all born in Switzerland.  They are both buried …

Open Cellar Weekend in Vaud

Have you ever seen Swiss wines on shelves in your local super markets or wine stores?  Does that mean that Swiss wines are not good? The answer to both of these questions is a negative one.  Their wines are wonderful, especially the white’s and the rose’s.  They simply do not export them as they are …

Gabriel Red Devil

Yes, only three days old, but now not only a member no. 4142221 of the United Supporter’s club but also wearing the outfit of the mighty reds … can’t wait for us to start to watch the games together

It’s quite remarkable …

… only two days old, has already shown us the finger (see my post from 13/5) and now showing his mom his “I’m very upset” face as she’s kickstarting the feeding process (which takes 3-4 days).  Priceless

Young at heart!

Many of you have teased me about the fact that I’ve been expecting a fourth child in my early forties.  Most of my colleagues have closed the door on having more children, some are trying to conceive and others haven’t even started yet.  And I must admit that I have had my doubts, as we had …

Today, the 13th of May 2015, our son Gabriel Alexander was born in the Zodiak sign of the Taurus.   According to various Internet resources, the positive sides of the Taurus are to be  dependable, persistent, loyal, patient and generous (right up our alley).  The negatives on the other side are, stubborn, laziness, possessive, materialistic and …

Me and Max

What a beautiful day!

Today was great, actually we woke up pretty early given the fact that we’d both been having a night out, Charlotte at Annette’s Bachelorette party and I playing Fifa and watching the Championship League final with Claes and Koray.  Both events had been fairly good although, Charlotte’s ended fairly badly as one of the group …

Charlotte’s parents visiting Switzerland for the first time

Last Wednesday Charlotte’s parents, Krister and Elisabeth came to visit us, they seemed to have timed their trip well as the Thursday and Friday were the best two days that we’ve had all summer. During these we managed to enjoy great dinners outside in the evenings but during the weekend it became a bit cooler …

Charlotte blushing!

Fifty Shades of Grey

Oh boy!  Why do you think my darling wife is blushing so much on the picture above?  Tired? Stressed? Too much wine?  No, nothing of the above, she has started to read the trilogy of the Grey books which are storming the charts across the world.  These erotic/romance love stories really seem to have an …

Birthday party in Iceland

We had planned to spend last weekend in Iceland, that was at least the plan until I got an text message on Friday morning saying “Forgot my pass!!!”.  I don’t know about all of you but at that moment I realized that I would probably have to go to Iceland myself without my angel, so …
