Okay then. Gonna give this a shot and see if I can't manage to update regularly. It's going to take a little bit of getting used to the system here.

I read that the Sámi had a very hard time convincing the UN and various indigenous groups that they are indigenous. "But, you are a bunch of pale skinned, blue eyed, blonde, white people." Well, not all of us, but a lot of us. Eventually someone joiked for them. That did the trick. I guess they figured that "White people don't do THAT!"

Here's an example of joiking. There are two people introducing the singer, first in Sámi, then in English.

UFO siting

Someone mentioned UFOs and it reminded me of the time I saw a UFO. I was with Neil (my boyfriend in the mid 70s) and another couple on the roof-top sundeck of the high rise apartment building where Neil and I lived. We saw a saucer shaped, blinking object in the sky. "Are we really seeing that?" We were mesmerized and kept a close eye on it as it approached. Eventually, we could hear the engines. It came closer and we read, "Fly Pilgrim Airways" in scrolling text. Much laughter ensued. I think it said Vermont too and there was a phone number. The scrolling text was on the bottom of the wings of a slow flying, propeller airplane.

The next day I heard several people talking about the UFO, that they had seen from the ground. They were convinced it was from outer space, until I explained about the scrolling text. I guess that plane should have been flying a bit lower.

This is a picture of the movable green wall my sister built as a gift to the Dali Lama.
