I'm most pleased to announce that for the fourth year in a row my photos have been chosen to play a part in the municipality's environmental calendar. This year with three photos. Say hallo to March (below, surprisingly fun when in larger size in a calender),

April (top above) and last but not least, the December pig

I picked up this year's prize the other day. As blown away by the awesome one last year and pretty happy with the one the year before that, as disappointed I was about this year's - a set of intricate and ridiculous cheese knives (or possibly equally intricate murder weapons, but given the situation and the instructions that followed I doubt that's what they're meant for).

I really don't eat cheese that much and certainly not that way. And if I did I would definitely not use silly, special knives for it, they play in the same silly league as grape scissors and alike.

The cheese knives was from the same company that was behind the first year's cheese book prize. All and all, it's pretty silly to think everyone enjoys cheese, I believe more people would enjoy a photography book or a local craft as a prize. At least in a local photography contest.

I think I will simply return the box with silly cheese knives, do a wee bit in saving taxpayer's money and hopefully they'll find their way to someone who appreciate them more. And settle with the fact that I still enjoy last year's candlestick very very much and am indeed very pleased about me (or rather my pictures) will adorn the walls of many homes this year again. In March, April and December.

Congrats, Pai! You really deserve! Photos are lovely! What is story of the pig?

I'm not cook so I'm not sure what is cheese knives, And the cheese in my country is special, not like french and other countries, so I really have no idea what is this knives?! I do not think you should return them, some clerk will keep them for yourself, if is good person OK, but if not? Why not make them gift for someone your friend? Someone who knows what is this :), and is good person!

Congratulations on this honour!

Keep the cheese knives and re-gift them. You never know when they might come in handy. You can give them away with a lovely basket of jams, some nice Brie or other, yummy crackers (give away as a gift, I mean). :-)

Happy New Year, Pia. I hope 2012 brings far more laughter than it does tears.
