Snart dags att lägga in sill, funderar på att göra en med köftekryddor. Jag funderar även på att göra senap.

Gott nytt år!

Vill passa på att rekka en bok som jag läste nu under ledigheten.


Om man är det minsta intresserad av Andrées Polarexpedition 1897 bör man läsa denna mycket trevliga bok. 5 rekk av 5.

Hi swedish Gaffers.

I'm from Finland and we are planning making a movie which ends in Tärnaby. We have snowboarders and the like in the cast. So the trip from Stockholm to Tärnaby will have stops in small villages on the way where they will do tricks and other fun stuff.

So my question is, that can you recommend villages that would be good places to stop? Either really nice looking places or just weird ones that would be fun for others to see on film.

Sorry man, but you're talking about villages very, very far to the north and most people don't really have much experience of those areas; comparatively few people even live up there. You'll probably find some tips if you ask on a website with more users, like Reddit :)

Good luck with the movie!

I know and I will ask. Just thought that maybe someone from here could tell me a place or two, if I get lucky.

Thank you very much :)

Siewert Öholm är död.

Synd att folk dör men jag verkligen gillade aldrig det religiösa puckot.
Siewert gav verkligen moralpaniken ett ansikte på 90-talet, eller om det var sent 80, men när han moralpredikade om W.A.S.P var något speciellt. We are satans people på bruten engelska.

Jag gillade aldrig människan heller, synd att han är död, men det ska vi alla förr eller senare.

Herre gud det sprider sig!

– Genom det jag läst och mina egna upplevelser så tror jag på det här. Det kan ingen forskare ta ifrån mig, det är det viktigaste för mig och det tror jag att det är för de som deltar också. Det finns alltid skepticism mot nya områden som inte hunnit bli evidensbaserade ännu. Ibland går det lite överstyr, men hur det ser ut får stå för de som uttalar sig, säger han.
Vi måste bränna ner Söderhamn innan resten av Sverige kontamineras!

Hej guys, I'm interested in moving to Sweden because of the lack of jobs here in Italy, is it possible for a person who basically only speaks English to get a job and live there? I've been to Sweden a number of times (grandparents live there) and I'll be in Goteborg next Wednesday, and so far I can say that everbody speaks and understand English, but is it actually possible to work without speaking Swedish? I do understand it a little (both spoken and written) but when it comes to speaking and writing I just default to English.

Also, how's the job market (high school diploma)? Down here (as in, near the city I live in, not necessarily the rest of the country) the situation is pretty dire and most of the time people get a low pay job with six months/a year contracts at best. And of course, the social-political situation is a pretty great incentive in looking abroad for other opportunities.

I'd be living with my grandparents in Angered for the time being, then look for another place as soon as I can. Being from a country in the EU from what I understand I could start working without any major hassle.

It's doable in the big cities, but more doable in Stockholm than Gothenburg. Not any jobs though I'd say, it's either high level IT-related jobs, or alternativly working in bars or as a waiter.

Almost everyone understands english, and most everyone loves to speak english, but for work, I'd say it'd be sort of limited to the options above.

And again, it's easier in Stockholm than Gothenburg.

Yeah, it's perfectly doable, we have plenty of english only developers in our IT department.

No swedish is obviously a serious detriment on the job market, since it's nearly always easier to just get someone with the same skills, but who also speaks swedish.

But go for it. If you don't have a job in Italy there's nothing really stopping you from visiting your grand parents for a couple of months while you try to find a job. I checked some stats and around 40% of the refugees who come here have a job after two years. Your odds should be significantly higher coming from another EU country.

Thanks guys. I'll take a look around when I'm over there, as well as getting some info for Swedish classes. I'll probably move there next summer for a few weeks, it's easier than doing everything from here.

If you want to learn the basics of Swedish then Duolingo is a good place to start. You can sign up for traditional classes once you arrive.

Finding a job without any special work skills will not be easy. Most companies would rather hire someone that is fluent in Swedish. That being said, it might not be worse than in Italy.

Will do, thanks.

And yeah, being worse than Italy would be quite an accomplishment. An incredibly bad one, but still (a recent study discovered that a lot of people become self sufficient when they're 35-40. Not everyone, of course, but I'd like to avoid that if possible).
