I think Emil Skog and herr Klantz look alike. Strange thing about Emil Skog, he was fighting on the red side in the finish civil war 1918. He was minister of defence under president Kekkonen who fought on the white side in the war.

The reds were very evil during the war killed a lot of white. But the White won the war at last and killed a lot more reds after the war the the reds had killed white during the war. President Kekkonen made service in an execution patrol.
Herr Klantz haven't killed anyone yet...

Cold morning in Arlöv

Sure was cold this morning in Arlöv. This last weekend our heating system sort of broke down, we had about 15C in the house. Lucky I got hold of a rapairman yesterday who could fix it. Guess it would have been frost on our houseplants otherwise.

Last evening my oldest son completed a school assignment doing some kind of familytree on my fathers side along with historical events along the way. The work started with my grandfather and ended with my son.

My father was born not knowing who his father was, not until he reached the age of 60, then his big sister revealed the secret. On his birthday he was told that he was the son of a well known politician in Finland by the name of Emil Skog. Emil had been minister of defence for about even years and finance minister for a shorter period. He was also in the election for president once.

1971 he wrote his memoares but unfortunatly only available in finish, so I haven't been able to read them.

My sons school assignment was surely a bit more interesting for him searching official documents and pictures of Emil Skog.
