Wonderful post, Donald!

I watched "Runaway Train" on BBC, shortly before moving back to Sweden.

It'sa great film.

Tuesday I start a new job.

All my years as a technician in foreign languages, and with a fixed salary, are finished - at least for now.

I will start a new job selling ads on Tuesday.

How wonderful it will be working on commission again.

I really love being back in Sweden!

"Runaway Train" was a classic from way back! Loved that movie when I was younger.
