Anders Dalenius is 41 yrs. old, works and owns the advertising agency “Goodmorning Sunshine” in the heart of Stockholm but lives with his family in the countryside. To mix the life as an inner city business communication consultant with the task of having a small farm is not always easy, but very rewarding. There are few places in the world where you really can have the mix of both city life and the calm of the countryside in the same day. Other mentionable things about me are that I don’t really care about sports, but love my 4 dogs and hunting. My own twitter account is @andersdalenius.

Ps. Remember this: When life is shit, it will pass. And when life is great, it will also pass. Accept this and you will enjoy life. <3
But feel free som join me there or at my company twitter @gmsftw, even if that's in swedish too. Take care all. Love, AD
Hello all. Thx för your nice feedback. Its been wounderfull to meet you all. I do exist on twitter also, but @AndersDalenius is i Swedish.
Tomorrow i will leave you in the safe hands of @Ekobonden, who is both nice, smart and an ecological farmer. You will enjoy his company.
+1! RT: “@Ekobonden: Imorgon är jag @sweden! Kan inte tänka mig ett bättre sätt att inleda året.”
@mofmanstu It was common when I was young, but now all kids are like named Gunnar or Reidar istead.
And here a gift to you. A very sweet way of starting the new year. Best of swedish soft folkjazz: http://t.co/Uf9DKVzi
So, todays my last day here. Don't have any extra plans, so we'll just see what happens during the day. Ok?
Hi all. Hope you hade a good newyerseve. Mine was great. And for the sixt year in a row, I start the new year by nor beeing hung-over. Nice.
!!!!!! RT:“@55words: Too bad you missed the #2012WJC between Sweden and Russia in Calgary, Canada. Sweden came back in overtime to win 4-3!”
För övrigt är den enda musik man kan lyssna på på tolvslaget The Jams "down in the tubestation at midnight". :)
Lobster and dear, happy new year!
Ok hipsters: Everyone is different, even in Sweden. You might think Im boring, but this is my life and I like it and share it. End of story.
@forumeditor The purpose of the account is not really to reach swedes, and english is spoken by most people in sweden.
Same to you, or "Gott Nytt År" as we say in swedish! RT: “@arjunkolady: Happy New Year @sweden!”
@petguineapiggy Im a bad Swede, because I haven't even seen the swedish version! But Im sure David Finchers version is great.
Morning tweeps. So, what you're up to this the last day of 2011, before the party starts tonight? I will clean the chickenhouse. So fab...
Ahahaha! Well, to live in a giant cake would be awsome too! RT: “@fooduileihpos: @sweden desert! dessert is something yummy to eat :)”
Naw, old Arnold is good but sleeping is better. See you tomorrow, tweeps all around the world. Thx for keeping me company.
Refering to America via movies makes me feel like the typical Russian guy in... yes an American movie. Catch 22, sort of.
@sbartelt Oh no. Im thinking of some one in the US. Dont know where, but I know you got em. Seen it in movies :D
@iceMagic Thx for the advice! But Im only here for this week, so I want to be focused on the task. And hey, its fun as well beeing here!
Oh, epic Schwartsernegger-film "The Running Man" is on TV. Great. Nothing like a good bad movie.
Its a bit hard to get a good flow in the tweets when you miss your ordinary stream. Hard to find relevant/fun topics. Have patience, please.
If I didnt have my life, or was growing corn, I'd like to live in a trailer in the dessert. Thats my "plan-b" if all other fail.
My best friend @Quetzala don't like dogs. Sadly enough she don't like to pay her phonebill either, so we can't talk. But I still love her.
You're so right. Life is to short for all the dogs you want! RT: “@LMvanderWatt: @sweden How about a Rhodesian Ridgeback? Great dogs!”
...A Beagle-Harrier. A Rottweiler. A Alpenländische Dachsbracke. And at least one more Eastsiberian Laika. To much dogs, to little time!
I can't buy another dog beccuase then Yvonne leavs me. Would love to have a daschhund though. And a Bassett. And a Chilo Sheppard.
Found out today that business was good this year. Can start looking for a double shootgun in 375 H&H without feeling ashamed.
Ok. Kids are back with their other parents, we got "The Wire"-box for christmas and there's loads of chirstmas chocolate left. Let's party!
@DiianMust Naaw, Im not sure about that. Got almost no patience, but Im good on stupid thing. And thank you. <3
@imdogrescue Not any more. Its just us old people that has that name these days. Nice crew on the picture!
Mila is feeding the dogs. They have to enter their food one by one on her command. Works good. http://t.co/mJKmQQxj
Started the day with chasing of a bird of pray that was closing in on our chickens. Dont mess with my girls, eagle!
@uaberu Yeah, its great. Thank good for Disney on DVD! That way she could bring spoken swedish to Paris.
@HaydenHaitch Damn right. Lession to the rest of the world: Just beccause your many dont mean youre right.
We are 4! You, me, Ingmar Bergman (RIP) and Kevin Costner himself. RT: “@HaydenHaitch: @sweden I loved that movie :) totally agree”
You know a film that was badly underrated? "Water World". I loved that film! They said that Ingmar Bergman did so as well. True gossip.
So, be prepard for tears tomorrow even if I will do my best to keep them back. Mila gets so sad when I cry, and its not her job to carry me.
You should think that I got used to it after allmost 10 years of living in different countries and lots of traveling, but you never do.
Tomorrow my little girl goes back to Paris. Allways hard to leave her at the airport, seeing her going away. :(
Ok. Transformers 3 wasn't so good as I first thought. It was edited like a comedy. I liked when it was dead serious. Then it was funny.
@a7damc Ahaha, yeah I was a bit fast there. It was edited strange and a bit too comic. But ok for a wednesday.
Glad I loat the remote struggle, latest Transformers is great!
We're now looking at Transformers. Yep, I lost the remote fight.
Fighting about the remote with my 10 yrs.old daughter. Its gonna get a lot worse before it gets better.
Thx! Makes me happy to hear. “@LaLuneDeux: @sweden I'm really liking your tweets. You represent your country well.”
@si1very I like some swediah folk, but now I mainly listen to a band called The American Dollar and John Coltrane outtakes on spotify.
@SindyNow Hello Hong Kong. I was there in 98. Amazing place! Coolest city in the world, I think.
@satisfythecrave Oh, he was a great guy but now he's dead. Its a swedish kind call "Hedemora höns". Thats an traditional swedish chicken.
And its corn on the cob (maize) that I mean with "corn". Sorry for the confusion..
"Why corn?", you ask. Well, cornfields are beautiful, it taste good and tou can feed the wild boars with what you dont use in the winter.
Would love to grow corn. Can't live on it though (the field is too small nad corn prize too low) so I have to stay in advertising.
Therefor, Im thinking of growing corn in the field and use te stable for a tractor instead. In fact, thats my dream for now.
Dont have any horses on our own, so we used to lend it out to a neighbor and let her have her horses there. But now she sold them.
Ah, forgott to share my farming plans with you. We have a small stable and a hage (?) but we dont keep any horses there any more.
@Edie_Howe Strange. Last two winters we had over 100 cm before new year. Though for the wildlife...
I hope so! RT: “@_mikehayes: You're all going to want to start following @Sweden on Twitter.”
@ribblefizz I think the word "kebab" have different meanings in different countrys. But on the plate you have charcoal grilled chicken/beef.
Farmers wisdom: The fox is close when the chickens put the eggs outside.
Lunch at "Palmyra", without a doubt the best kebab in Stockholm. Giant portions! http://t.co/TSSOrk80
@richms Oh, we have thought that to many times. But it geta harder for every time we fix something.
Thx! This is great news. RT: “@satisfythecrave: hey @sweden and mr. anders, america loves you.”
And here's the eggfactory. 20+ chickes gives us enough of eggs for family and friends. And the panncakes taste great! http://t.co/jsb6kA3O
We live here. Old part of the house is build mid 1700, so it constantly need fixing. http://t.co/pGQh4YCh
(for new followers: My daughter lives most of the time with her mum in Paris, but is here on every holliday.)
Starting the day doing homework with Mila. Hard to help beccause my frensh is not all so good as it should be. http://t.co/Fp9DNpDv
Even not to do something is to do something, beccause today even the lack of actions will have reactions. No more hiding in inactivity.
This nights wisdom: If your company don't communicate, you very activley communicate that you don't like to communicate.
And why can't I enjoy chess? I love to be some one that likes to play chess, but sadly Im not. Pinball is still fun, though.
Its kind of sad that I don't care about computer games anymore. Feels like I got older and "mature" in a way I don't like and didn't choose.
A prospect asked me today what kind of "nails" our business use. I said we dont even have a hammer but know people who do. #newbusinessmodel
@ariannasan Well, that's great. I love to be as swedish as meatballs! (wrote "methballs" at first, but that's not so swedish)
Christmas been great but now Im really start to miss work. Im kind of lucky, that way.
@ariannasan Is that true? When Im been to the US people allways seem to think its a strange name.
Mora FTW! RT “@gmcugolferMark: Hey @sweden I am pumped to visit end of feb to with group from Mora Minnesota to Mora Sweden for Vasaloppet.
The week's running out. You got hunting and hockey, so tomorrow we'll look in to some farming. Horses, chickens and stuff. How about that?
Brought my not so impressed girl Mila to a hockey game with the only real team in Sweden, and that's AIK of course! http://t.co/oy8hhTBT
I think it was a Danish that said: "You don't hunt to kill. You kill beccause you hunt." Big difference. (maybe my translation sucks though)
My friend Jonas got a wild boar. The search master Bino the Beagle found it. http://t.co/1AIbLcMz
Well, time to sleep. The wild boars will probably party all night and then we get em tomorrow. Over and Out from Grödinge. God natt, tweeps.
And here's the reason Id stop drinking. Her name is Mila and she's my much loved daughter. http://t.co/YRgITQVD
Thx for all the nice things you say, but actually its not that hard getting sober. Its much harder beein a drunk.
Just realised that I will celebrate my 6th year sober anniversary on Jan 1:st togeter here with you. Great!
So don't expect ant funny drunktweets on new years eve from me.
And from me you will have firearms and tobacco, but no alcohol. Been sober 2186 daya and counting. Love it!
And, beccause I try to live as I learn, now its time to go to bed.
Naaw, I dont wanna work tomorrow. Think I go hunting instead. My boss thinks the same. Love that guy! #selfemployed
I don't say "snus" is good for you, but if you're allreday a nicotinuser its less leathal. But hey, you're still gonna die.
Its powerfull stuff. I gave it to my chainsmoking french ex-wife, and she stoped smoking immediately! But you can only bye it here :(
Its"Snus", a kind of tobaco that you put under your lip. Lots of nicotin but much less unhealthey than smoking. Great! http://t.co/o1aEjfyO
And talking about local food, here's the best of swedish stuff. Its not "food" even if you stuff it in your mouth. http://t.co/CuOHxepJ
My day in the city ending with brining home sushi to the family. To much christmasfood.
Sorry for low twittrate. Preparing for a jobmeeting in Stockholm, but will be back on vacation with you here after lunch.
@zpeleg My girl lives with her mother in Paris, and is here on hollidays so she loves to be here even if there is not so muc other children.
@yaadayaada Ah, that's good. But this time a year in sweden, the sun like rises at 09 and sets around 14. :(
We live in the country. No neighbours and for sure no bars or nightclubs exept a pizzaplace 5 km from here that closes 21:00.
I didn't like old people haning in my places when I was 21, so Im not gonna be one of those now when Im old. No big risk, though.
No, Im not a bar hanging, club hopping kind of guy. Not any more. Im 41 now. These things are for kids. They don't want old people there.
Another tip: My life got so much better when I stoped using the alarm clock. Instead, I go to bed real early and wake up in time anyway.
Another great tip: My life got so muc better when I stop using the alarm clock. Instead, I go to bed real early and wake up in time anyway.
And if you're back to work tomorrow, remember this: When you're in a lot of stress, the best thing you can do is to sit down for a minute.<3
Ok. I don't sleep at the same place as the dogs. I more ment "join" them in sleeping.
Damn folks, Im so tired. Can't keep my eyes open. Dogs are allready sleeping so now Ill join them. Thx for today. Take care god natt.
@squidwardspeaks There is new fucking swedes every week here. Will try to worsen my language a bit for you.
"I love dogs". Yuck! That made me sound like perv in a contact add . But I do. Love dogs I mean. So sue me.
Maybe watch some tv with the others? They are my daughter who is half frensh and my wife who s half mexican. A typical swedish family.)
Oh, sorry. Did I introduce my self? Im Anders, 41 yrs old and love dogs. Maybe you noticed the last part?
Back home and had dinner. Dogs was starving as well. A dat in the forrest takes a lot of energy.
@FizaIsa Haha, no not yet. Would be very hard to chew tonight. Sleep well and hope to see you tomorrow.
And I understand you that dont like hunting, but if you eat meat it sure feels better som have it this way.
No, wait! Hunt is not over. Grymta got something! Ill be back.
The last two dogs ( yes, we have 4 ) is a Slovensky Kopov and a Beagle. http://t.co/rqwaxNeq
Found it! No more hunting today. We shot nothing but the dogs had fun and Im happy. Guess everyone won. http://t.co/RV0qkH5Y
Oops.. Forgott where we parked the car.
Here's another one of my loved dogs. This is Gaston, a Griffon Nivernais. Loves wild boar. http://t.co/4BWOykPK
And like most of the people in the world, my english is not very good. Hope you still understand me though.
Lunch break. No snow but still painfully cold in the hard wind. No moose or wild boar yet. http://t.co/YTaeigJs
