The delights of Trondheim #1

I might make this a series, hence the #1.

First up, anyway, is Strindens promenadeorkester, eh, excuse me, Strindens Promenade Orchester. We tend to head for the town centre most Saturdays, to take a walk up or down Nordre and have coffee at a suitable café, most frequently Somma. This Saturday we walked out of Somma to find Strindens just getting started on a little street concert to celebrate their 47th and a half birthday.

We stopped to listen, the lass had a wee dance or ten and we had some laughs. Because with Strindens you get antics. You also get music, swinging music, but mostly you get antics.

Antics. A fast head-shoulders-knees-and-toes to warm up.

Antics. A little nap. And as you can tell, I wasn't the only one with my camera out.

NaBloPoMo

Ok, so, I know it’s the 2nd. But I did post yesterday, it’s just that I posted on the bookblog and on the ingestibles blog rather than here. I’m going to say it counts, though.

So, I’m not going quite as crazy as tonbel and doing the NaNoWriMo, though every year when it comes up I think “well, maybe next year”. So, maybe next year. But I think I can do NaBloPoMo, as I’m in a bit of a blogging groove or something (I mean, when’s the last time I wrote as many blogposts in a month as I’ve done this October?). One thing, though: By now, shouldn’t it be IntBloPoMo? It’s hardly a “national” phenomenon anymore, is it?

Wait, ok, just to be completely crazy – or possibly bite over more than I can chew, I’m going to post the ingestibles blog to the blogroll, too. That’ll be fun. Yeah.

Bloggers I read regularly who are also doing it (will add to this list as I discover more…):
