Happy the land that has no news

To adapt Brecht.

Anyway, Finland would look to be the place to be in July, as this is what is showing at the site of Helsingin Sanomat, an English language site I have bookmarked:

"The International Edition will be offline for the whole of the month of July...Though there can be exceptions, July is not traditionally a very big month for "hard" news in Finland, either in politics or in business, as the country, too, is in recess, and is more or less "closed" for the duration".

Whereas we just have skateboarding ducks and so on
heading the news agenda.

May I assure you that Finland (or anywhere else in Scandinavia for that matter) is indeed the place to be at this time of the year. Gorgeous warm weather, fabulous scenery, land of the midnight sun, reindeer on your doorstep, saunas before supper, walks in the woods with trees in full bloom... etc

What's not to like?
