Earlier this week Dr. Darling and I decided to take advantage of the summer weather that has FINALLY showed up in these parts to get out on our bikes for a bit. Our destination was Lund, the college town roughly 18 kilometers northeast of Malmö that also happens to be home to my new (as …

Birds-of-a-feather scare together

You can’t really tell by this photo, but this eagle-shaped thing is basically a small kite that’s strung from a tall fiberglass pole mounted in a large planter near the outdoor seating for one of Malmö’s newest cafés, Condeco.

Dr. Darling and I are heading to the Swiss Alps tomorrow for a highly anticipated long “Training Weekend” organized by Coach Bad-@$$. “Highly anticipated” because #1) it’s the first time we’ve ever road-tripped with the globe-trotting Sonic Youth (AKA Sophie & Mrs. Coach Bad-@$$, Matilda), something we have long wanted to do, B) it’s going …

I love technology, and I especially love “green” technology. So even though I don’t own a motor vehicle, I was really excited to get an invite to the unveiling of Malmö‘s newest electric car charging station … powered entirely by renewable energy.  The simple yet futuristic-looking contraption is the creation of a company called InnoVentum, which is …
