There it finally is, the list of my favorite love songs. There is also the scenes of my favorite movies with great love songs. Hope you enjoy as much as I do! 

(I translated a part of the lyrics to those finnish songs where I didn’t find a translation in net.)


Rakkaus (Love)

Chorus: ”All It will cover, all it will trust, all it will hope, all it will suffering. Love will never disappear. 

Love only love will stay.”

Armaan läheisyys (Beside you) 

”I’m thinking of you when in shining of the day I see the lake

I’m thinking of you when shadows of the moon is shining on fountain. 

I see you when the dust is riseing on the way, I still see you, when wanderer is walking there to the darkest night.

I’m listening you when waves are rushing to the cradle of strand. I stay to listening your voice when I quiet at grove.

I am with you even then you’re far away, close you stay.

The day is setting, soon will stars ignite, stay next to me.”älä-mene-pois-dont-go-away.html

Ensi katse kertoi sen (First Look)

(First) Chorus: ”From the first look I already knew this will not stay at halfway. I found a man. We enjoyed, we got excited, far away it reached us.

From the first look I already knew you are different man, woman will know it, when I danced with you to the sky from the stars.”

Ruusun oksa ja kyyhkynen (The Rose branch and Pigeon)

Chorus: ”Rose branch and pigeon, you have been the song of my soul, flare of my heart, like the burning painting of love.

Rose branch and pigeon, same time my tear drop and laughter, carbon of emotions and glow of becoming days.”

Hurmio (The Ecstasy)

Chorus: ”I think we will fly to stars again when I take us to ecstasy.

This way leads us to happy joyfull place if you just don’t be afraid.

The lonely times will be gone now when I can be finally with you.

And so we are led to romance now by beautiful way and take us to ecstasy.”änlupaus/translation/english/amp (The english translation is under the finnish ones).

I’m so happy now! I got a new job finally!
I have been looking for it for a while. As many of you knows the lady I took care for years did past away at januari and after that I have had just some tasks. At winter I got one, more regularly place but at spring he had to go to hospital and it ended. After that I have had only casual job.

My new place seems to be (very) good much better than the earlier (well, it doesn’t need much). It’s the same kind of care taking job. I had the interview last friday and it already went so well that I almost new I got that job. Also that employer was very nice, warm and casual. The questions were easy and at the end of the interview I got the chance to explain to my hobby (gymnasticks) which the employer seemd to be interested. She didn’t even take a look at my diplomas. She said she got so good impression of me! (Also I think she might have to horry but still).

Tiger shops window.

That employer called me yesterday and said she wanna hire me. I have the first visit at my first client at thursday. With me there will be two of that firms managers to teaching me. That’s really good! In the last firm they just sent an adres and you had to go there and get things done by yourselves. You didn’t know where you were going, I mean what kind of place. It’s not always easy. Like one time when I had to use a lifting apparatus and I haven’t used it before. Anyone hadn’t teach me. Well, the client tryed to brief me but it was still hard. I made it, finally but it took some time. This new firm have already told me things about my first client. Today I heard much information when I went to sign the employment contract. It sounded great so now I’m waiting eagerly the first meeting! 

1920’s Ford. We have ”a little bit” newer Ford.

My dad is better but he’s still at the hospital. He have broke his both shoulders (don’t ask me how) but obviously he have falled. He just don’t remember that like my mom either. (They both have memory problems.) He have now started learn to walk again after long period without walking (he’s moving with wheel chair).

Last time at hospital some woman thought we’re in the ship (cruising?) She asked us are we already in harbour? When no one answered she asked again: ”Could someone tell me where are we”. Then my brother said: ”At hospital”. She didn’t say anything for a while but then she was wondering why the elevators are locked. (The reason is that no one can’t escape). Well, then after a while ago, she said: ”I go to deck, then let’s see what we can do”. Yes, right…

So, this was my news to you this time! 

Have a great week!

Anoreksiasta kärsineen aikuisballeriinan elämää tanssin ja toipumisen parissa. Valoa on alkanut näkyä tunnelin päässä. Hienoja, pitkiä postauksia.

Toinen aikuisballeriinan blogi, jossa ihania tanssikuvia!

Kirjoittaja: Tintti kirjoittaa mukaansa tempaavasti, ja kertoo lähinnä masennuksestaan, sekä aikaisemmasta suhteestaan, jonka perään on kovasti haikaillut. Tosin uutta materiaalia ei ole hetkeen tullut.

Raiskauksen uhri pui tapausta ja sen jättäneitä jälkiä elämäänsä.

Hieno blogi, jossa tavallista perhe-elämää ja ihmissuhde juttuja, sekä muita erilaisia, mielenkiintoisia aiheita.
Erilaisia, mielenkiintoisia postauksia, vaihtuvista aiheista.
Entisen fitness urheilijan blogi, jossa lähes kaikkea maan ja taivaan väliltä. Aika paljon mm. perhe-elämään liityviä juttuja. Itseäni on kovasti kiinnostanut tuo fitness urheilijan elämä, joka on niin kovin kurinalaista, ja kyllä myös luonnotonta. Siihen tämä kirjoittaja oli itse aikoinaan havahtunut ja lopettanut.
Treenaajan ja valmentajan elämää, hyvinvointia. Mielenkiintoisia postauksia aiheeseen liittyen.
Myös treeniblogi, jossa hienoja, laajoja treeniin ja hyvinvointiin liittyviä postauksia. Erityisesti suosittelen naisille kuukautisiin ja hormonitoimintaan liittyvää postausta.
Kanadaan muuttanut, (balettia harrastava) suomalaistyttö kirjoittaa elämän muutoksestaan, (harrastuksestaan) ja yleensäkin elämästä Kanadassa.
Balettia harrastavan tytön tanssiblogi, jossa myös jonkin verran kivoja matkailupostauksia.


Jippu-Old beautiful man

”Jippu” (Meri-Tuuli Elorinne) is one of my favorite, finnish singers who’s mom is our family friend. Also I have known her step father. Two first albums of ”Jippu” did sell gold. The third album which she made together with other singer did sell platinum.

I wanted to share this touching article made of radio program where”Jippu” is interviewing her mother. 

”Jippu” had tough youth. His biological father is famous opera singer. Her parents divorced when she was six years old. Her relationship with her own father wasn’t easy like it wasn’t with her step father either. 


Lyrics in english below…

”Jippu” falled apart and was put to child caring institution when she was 15 and that came ful surprise for her mom. She heard that in the middle of her work day and started to cry. She went to meet ”Jippu” and bring flowers to her.  ”Jippu” didn’t understand why her mother left her there and why she couldn’t go home with her. Later she understood it was good for her. 

They had very long split with her mom. They didn’t see each other for years. Then when ”Jippu” was expecting her own child, she realised the meaning of mother and daughter relationship. She wanted to see her mom, called her and drived instantly to mother’s place. They had very emotional meeting. Mother was at shock when they met. They both shed tears while remembering this.

Jippu-The town of angels

Lyrics in english below…

”I’m sorry I was gone for so long and hurted for so many!” ”Jippu” said later.

My eyes watered also when I did read this. I thought ”Jippu” hugging with her mother and I was so touched. I’m happy they finally found one other again! I hope the best for you both…or all three actually…including already 2-years old boy: Romeo! You are all in my thoughts…

Jippu-who made me this woman

Lyrics in english below…


The touching interview below.

Jipun ja äidin koskettava yhteishaastattelu – lastenkotiin joutuminen jätti jäljet


This cutie was at our yard one day. I’m happy I got the picture of it before it run away!

These two squirrels I saw ower a year ago when I was on my way to gymstick class. Aren’t those cute too?

I was interrupted today at the shopping centre when I was makeing a call to my man. Some boy where makeing something and asked if he could cheer me up. I just walked away and said: ”I have to call.” Then after I did walk over I realised what should I say. I could say: ”do you really wanna cheer me up? Then give me 2000€ (or give me atleast 200€) That will cheer me up.” It would be so funny.

I really hate that they’re always everywhere marketing something these days. I hate that they have to make us always by something. It’s not helping that they try to be so nice. Do I know you? No. Are you my friend? No. Why do you try to be nice. I know what you want. You want me to put my (last) money for your some stupid thing. You want only my money…but I know what I need and I don’t have any extra money so this is annoying. Let people just be sometimes! 

Esplanad park.

Speaking of friends I saw my friend accidentally at grocery store today. Nice surprise! Yesterday we were together at Esplanad park eating ice cream and today we collided again. What a coincidence!

There below is a funny and useful test if you want to know are you blogging addict. I’m surprisingly not…but I do have seasons when I’m more addicted. Luckily not all the time.

Still one thing for you…



This is document video of Riitta Väisänen and her famous tv-quiz: ”Kymppitonni” (ten grand) (In finnish only).

I hope you don’t think now I’m a miss competition fan. It’s not that (not after youngster years) but I wanted to write this post cause this woman deserved an own post. I just wrote about that how some miss you will remember always while others you will forget right away. Riitta is the one who people do remember (still over 40 years after her crowning). She’s (maybe) the most famous miss in Finland and she’s the person who everyone loves. You can’t be not likeing her. That’s very important thing: the personality. The look is helping but it’s not everything at all. Her person is just right: genuine and sympathetic and by genuine I mean that she really is what she is. She doesn’t even have any education or class to tv-job cause her man (famous finnish comedian: Spede Pasanen) noticed that she’s great just the way she is. In his mind Riitta didn’t need any education (even she would like to have it). Spede was right. Riitta was so cute being amateur (that was surely the reason she was so loved). The education would have been spoiled it. She was one of the first naturally speakers who didn’t follow any formal schema. (For example all this Riitta is telling in that linked document video). 

Picture crosswords quiz 1985. (I was 4-5 years). That program I don’t remember. It did run only about a year in tv. 


Her most popular tv-quiz ”Kymppitonni” was playful competition where the idea was to guess the right word for the tips which every competitor made on her turn. The money competitors got went to the charity firm with their choice. I loved that quiz younger. It was fun to be guessing these words by yourselves (and not to look the right answers). 

Riitta Väisänen in one of Spede Company’s ”Uuno” movies. (Don’t remember which one of those this is). If you want to know more these movies read my earlier post: ”Pertti ”Spede” Pasanen in memoriam”. The link didn’t work but you can find it in file: syyskuu 2016 (September 2016).


Riitta haven’t been working for tv for a while. In one program where she was interviewed she said she haven’t got tv- job cause she’s too old (62). That is typical these days. When you get older you don’t pass anymore anywhere. That topic have been in media much lately. For example our big tv- channel YLE did fired many their older, long career made worker. That’s so wrong! They shouldn’t do like this! If you can do your job and the audience loves you then you should keep your work despite your age, right! Not everyone in tv have to be young! We all get older but if you are healthy you are atleast as good as younger maybe even better cause you have experience more! That’s the thing! 

Miss Finland 1976 clip.


I would take ”Kymppitonni” back or maybe they could discover some new entertainment program for Riitta if thats too worn out!

Have a nice week!


Just that you know, my dad is much better now. We went to see him yesterday. I write more later but today I wanted to make a post of my favorite miss Finland: Lola Odusoga.

The day before yesterday I did read a magazine article of first miss universe: miss Finland, Armi Kuusela. I think most of women have heard of her sometimes. She have been very much blazed under these years. She’s elegant, yes! She’s stylish, yes! She’s good looking…

              but she’s not our most beautiful miss in all the timeWe have to remember that there was not so much competitors in 1952. There was competitors only from 30 countries and there was not (I think) for example any latinos or africans or any other exotic womans. 

                Many of those have so gorgeous bodys and long legs that we just can’t compete with them. In these days miss universe Armi wouldn’t place. It was so different then. 

If most women remember Armi Kuusela, I’m not sure is there so many who remember Lola Odusoga but in my mind she’s our most gorgeous miss. She did place at miss universe 1996 of third. After that she have hosted many programs and events. She’s one of our most successful miss ever and those are rare. Most of them you just forget right after her agency year. Just few of them we will remember and will make a huge career like one of our very famous miss, maybe most famous (the first runner up, and miss Europe): Riitta Väisänen. She was even more successful than Lola. She married our big comedian: Spede and with his help Riitta got some little roles from Spede movies and she got her own entertaiment program ”Kymppitonni” which was very popular for years and years.

Our success in miss universe is pretty much like in eurovision but we have however two wins (and Lola’s third place). Anyway, I just wanted to say that Lola is my favorite. She’s just so gorgeous and also very sympathetic! There will be never another Lola!
