Subject: BS: What´s up Skarpi Iceland
From: skarpi
Date: 27 Oct 14 - 05:47 PM

As you have seen I have not been as much I once was , but that does not mean I am not following you and the treads that people are putting out here on Mudcat , as many of you know the world crisis in 2008 got
me and many more , a big problems . For three years I have been working hard to pay back my debts and now on 1 st of November I will be finishing off 85 % of it , that means I have more money between my hands
every months and live is getting better again , but there is still out side problems as for Iceland´s debt , and our national Hospital is out of doctors because they want more money for their work that they won´t
have here , so they all leave Iceland ..to the other Nordic country´s
Don´t believe what you hear in the news about Iceland economy , Iceland
is bankrupt , there is no way we can pay the debts . And they are all telling you that the bankers are in jail ? what a crapp ...no one is in jail , and they are not going to be there ,

As for me , I have not been well this took a lot energy and have played my life bad :/ ..but there is always a light at the end of the tunnel ...and I am almost there , I have been once so I should know :) .

So am I playing music , yes I am , and I am writing lyrics and music as well ,
Is Skarpi coming to the Getaway , ? well if my health and my money saving goes as planned , yes I am ..next year are ten years since last time .
will I bring some one with me , that is the plan .


So until I know more , all the best Skarpi Iceland .

I'm glad your money situation is improving but sorry you have had health problems. How is Iceland's volcano? Do you know that a volcano in Hawaii is causing trouble?

my thought are always , there are always some one out there that
is having more problem than me , so I guess I must be a rich man

The volcano is still pumping up lava and here are news in English about it .... http://ruv.is/volcano , the big caldera is still falling down and if that goes up then god help us , the caldera is 11,2 km wide and I live only 100 km away ...

Yes I heard about the eruption in Hawaii ..not good ,

The world crisis has not arrived yet , it will be there , last one was just a practice ...

all the best to you all , I am off to see the light at the end of the tunnel ....have a great day . Skarpi Iceland .

This article in the Wall Street Journal presents Iceland as a wonderful place to visit.


www.wsj.com/articles/an-insiders-guide-to-reykjavik-iceland-1432230921

With strong exchange rates this looks like a grand place to swing into from a Eurpean leg of a journey.


Sincerely,

And Icelandic air has some cheap fares.

Just trekked across to a large Tesco to get Skyr. I don't usually shop in Tesco since they stopped stocking most Irish brands. But I was eager to eat Skyr, partly because I have a nationalistic suspicion that it might have originally been brought to Iceland by one of the Irish women kidnapped by our Icelandic friends back in the day. Haven't tasted it yet; if I like it I hope to make my own.
(Scandinavians brought their own yogurts, such as viilli, across America dried into pieces of linen; my assumption is that some about-to-be-kidnapped Irish woman similarly persuaded her rapists to wait while she picked up a few valuables to bring with her, including her kneading-trough, her hens and her yogurt starter.)

Skarpi, welcome back. When you started the BS thread, what do you see in the sky, you said your lungs were part of the problem. Congestion? Are you breathing better now? Good to hear that your living space is an improvement.

Skarpi, get an air cleaner if you can. If you switch it on overnight, it'll take any moulds and microscopic fluff out of the air.

2005 was the only year I have missed the Getaway since I started going in 1999, and 2005 was the year that everybody was there - Skarpi, KT, Micca, everybody. Why'd I have to miss it?
Skarpi, I haven't given up hope. I still expect to meet you some day.

Hallo , 2016 was both a happy year and also sad ..
Worked hard most of the year who does not ? ehh went to some hiking´s in the mountains here in the East of Iceland , played in five festivals on my own , and one in the Capital with my dear friend Rosa in a Irish drunken rabbit pub ...:) .We got a Grandchild number two , but it´s always strange that when a newborn come into this world , another one goes , in December my Mother left this world after being sick for about two years , and loosing someone around Christmas time is Difficult , so on the new year coming there are things I am longing for to do , and I am going to do them , for about a year and a half I have been learning how play the Electrical guitar better and improve my fingers , I hope this will help me also in the Folk music as well , Country , Blues , Rock , Funk ...and some Hot metal along with the Celtic tunes on the guitar , so more later on . All the best from the North Atlantic Ocean . P.s Happy New Year
