I am still very much alive :D
« on: 08/06/2014 12:38 PM »
Hi brothers!

Long time no see, very long actually. Lots of things happened; super busy at work, leading a team of software developers in India :) Had three weeks vacation which we spend in my parents house, they were on their vacation in the sailboat. They have a great house, with a nice garden and a fantastic location. This summer has beaten all records in Norway, it's been so hot and humid that I've never seen anything like it! I had four Indian guys visiting for the kickoff for our development project, and they were commenting on the heat ;)

I think I've drank over four cases of beer while we were at my parents house, and smoked a minimum of two cigars a day. The twins were playing in a baby bathtub thing and life was just great! Completely off the grid!

Apart from that I have set up and is helping my wife run a web community for twin moms, which has taken up quite a lot of time but is actually going quite good :D

I have received some PMs from some of you, I truly appreciate that I have not been forgotten, and I will reply to them :) Also Michael sent something in the mail that I as beyond stoked about. I will address that in a thread of it's own, as it truly deserves.

So short story, life has been good, family is good, work is hectic, but rewarding. I am attaching some photos to show that it's not all lies!

PS: I now have both an Android pad and phone, so I'll be outside for my next herf I hope. Actually smoking this time!
- Thomas

Great pics of the kiddoes.

I never imagined it got that hot in Norway.
