Welcome To The Revolution!

This weekend the Roomie and I headed out to watch the Revolutionary War Battle Re-Enactment.

We live in an area that is filled with Historic places.  The battle took place in the back field of Hope Lodge.

Today’s battle saw the British taking the field.  That’s revolution speak for winning.

I’m not sure if you can see behind me are the red-coats.  The uniforms were really cool since this supposed to be like 239 years ago.

It turned out to be a beautiful day for a Skirmish in the back field.

If you get a chance go visit.  This place is fun, historic and just a nice way to spend a Sunday.

Happy Autumn!

More Autumnal Fun

I’ve been having a blast recently with all of the outside fun.

SAM_5035 (400x300)

It was a little rainy and overcast for most of the day but I just couldn’t let it get in the way of my good day.

SAM_5045 (400x300)

Peak Leaf/Color season has passed but there are still some good colors on the trees.  We took to the Arboretum today.

SAM_5052 (400x300)

It wasn’t too bad.  I’m going to miss all of the color once Winter descends upon us but at least I have my memories to keep me feeling good!  Can’t wait to see what happens tomorrow!

Autumn With More Milkweed Pods

The trees are in full color now.  The Roommie wanted to see if the milkweed pods were exploding yet and as luck had it they were.

SAM_4992 (400x300)

They were all over the field.  I think I saw her doing a little jig.  It was kind of an awkward moment.

SAM_4982 (400x300)

I snagged my Milkweed Seed and made my wish.  I sure hope it comes true!

SAM_4997 (400x300)

We went to the wheel pump house because it’s not far from the field of Milkweed Pods.  It was a great lunchtime!
I can’t wait to see where we go tomorrow!

Autumn in the Forest

Not far from my American Home we have a forest that is actually a park.  To me it’s still a Forest…you know…trees and all.  Today’s Autumnal journey takes me to the Wissahickon CreekFairmount Park in Philadelphia,  Pennsylvania.

SAM_4959 (400x300)

What is so great about Fairmount is the size of it.  It’s huge and filled with everything from history to natural beauty.

SAM_4941 (400x300)

You can see how beautiful it is from my pictures but this is only a taste of what there is to see.   We only spent 20 minutes here today and it was amazing.

SAM_4957 (400x300)

Even though it was raining today it only stood to enhance colorful landscape.  This is the beauty of my American Home.

Happy Autumn!

I can never tell when Peak Leaf Season is happening.  Sometimes I’m too early sometimes too late.   Not sure about today but I think our outing today hit it somewhere in the middle.

SAM_4912 (400x300)

The air is crisp and the colors were bursting!

SAM_4886 (400x300)

Halloween is just a few days away.  I can’t wait.  As a World Traveling Troll I love to experience local culture.

SAM_4872 (300x400)

Since I moved here 11 years ago I’ve found that Autumn is also my favorite time of year.  The smells in the air, the cool crisp air and the frolicking and running amok.  Who wouldn’t love this time of year?

SAM_4885 (400x300)

I hope you get to take time to enjoy Autumn too!

Bjorn Does Charity Work

This weekend I went with the roommates and their dog Tara for a wall to raise money for Cancer.  The dog was super good even though they dressed it up like Spock from Star Trek.


The day was a crisp and the air was cold but it was a good time.

I think Tara had fun too.  Don’t feel so bad Tara…they dress me up all the time too!

Visiting Ohio – Part II

SAM_4783 (400x300)

I’ve repeatedly told the Roomie that I do not like to travel this way (especially since my nose fell off) but she insists on it.

SAM_4768 (400x300)

While in Cleveland we went too the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.  It was fun and loud, lol.  Being from the tranquil forests of Norway it was an eye opener for Ingrid and Me.

SAM_4624 (400x300)

So much history in one place.  We had so much fun.  Elvis and anything 50’s early 60’s are my favorite but Ingrid is all about Queen.

SAM_4760 (400x300)

The view from the 3rd level was amazing.  It was an overcast/rainy day but Lake Erie looks awesome in the distance!  To lean all about the celebrities, the Bands and the era’s of music from Carl Perkins to Beyonce was super cool.
