MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND
1. Memorial Day is a day of remembrance but it also signifies the “Official” start of summer. What are your plans this weekend?
What I normally do in a weekend, having coffee and a good conversation on the terrace of my favotite bar, doing my shopping on the farmers market, reading a book and that’s just Saturday.
2. What is your most and least favorite thing about summer?
Nice weather and loads of tourists in my hometown.
3. What do you think of when I say “Bar-B-Que?”
Cremated meat. Why does everyone think they know how to
burn grill their meat?!
4. What is your favorite summer food?
5. Are you is swim suit shape yet?
A swim suit?! Haven’t worn one in ages and I like to keep it that way.

A pool, when swimming I like to see the bottom and what swims around/under me.
7. Which summer blockbuster movie are you most looking forward to seeing?
X-Men: Days of Future Past
8. Summer reading: What? Recommendations?
‘The Kill Switch’ by James Rollins, which I just finished. A great storyteller! I started this morning with “The Lincoln Myth” (a Cotton Malone book) by Steve Berry. Here’s a synopsis: September, 1861: All is not as it seems. With these cryptic words, a shocking secret passed down from president to president comes to rest in the hands of Abraham Lincoln. And as the first bloody clashes of the Civil War unfold, Lincoln alone must decide how best to use this volatile knowledge: Save thousands of American lives? Or keep the young nation from being torn apart forever?
The present: In Utah, the fabled remains of Mormon pioneers, whose 19th century expedition across the desert met with a murderous end, have been uncovered. In Washington, D.C., the official investigation of a international entrepreneur, an elder in the Mormon church, has sparked a political battle between the White House and a powerful United States senator. In Denmark, a Justice Department agent, missing in action, has fallen into the hands of a dangerous zealot – a man driven by divine visions to make a prophet’s words reality. And in a matter of a few short hours, Cotton Malone has gone from quietly selling books at his shop in Denmark to dodging bullets in a high-speed boat chase.
All it takes is a phone call from his former boss in Washington, and suddenly the ex-agent is racing to rescue an informant carrying critical intelligence. It’s just the kind of perilous business that Malone has been trying to leave behind, ever since he retired from the Justice Department. But once he draws enemy blood, Malone is plunged into a deadly conflict – a constitutional war secretly set in motion over 200 years ago by America’s Founding Fathers.
From the streets of Copenhagen to the catacombs of Salzburg to the rugged mountains of Utah, the grim specter of the Civil War looms as a dangerous conspiracy gathers power. Malone risks life, liberty, and his greatest love in a race for the truth about Abraham Lincoln —- while the fate of the United States of America hangs in the balance.
9. Vacation Plans? If you can’t, what would you do if you could?
Not at the moment. If I could I would go to the States
10. Did you ever have to go to summer school?
No, I even think we don’t have that kind of schooltype in our country.
Sex on the beach?
All that sand in every nook and cranny… No, thank you!
