Here smoking has almost been outlawed. - Not that it bothers me, only having smoked once in my life and that was weed. At the age of eight. Didn't like it!
But I sometimes think; easy now. Let people kill themselves as they please.

That's my sentiments about our Marie as well. I respect Alexandra more than I like her. But Marie I genuinely like and I think she is fun to be around or at least, as you point out, entertaining.

Telling jokes has never been the best way of impressing girls anyway. Much better in the long run to let her talk, look thoughtful and nod and grunt from time to time. Then they think you are deep. And you can always add the trumphcard: Saying: "I'm actually glad we had this chat/you gave me something to think about".
No, the key to a successful marriage is for the wife to have a good sense of humour. That enables her to look at her husband's (many) faults in a different and less disparing light. - And thus ends todays philosophical contribution.

I love work, it absolutely fascinates me. I can sit for hours looking at people working.

Summary of an article in Billed Bladet #32, 2013.
Marie rystet - Marie shaken.
Written by Ulrik Hemmingway...Sorry, Ulrik Ulriksen. (*)

The Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix took place over two days in the track this time was new for everybody. Joachim told in an interview on TV2 that being unfamiliar with the track would be challenge for all.
Like a real petrol-babe Marie was present on both days and offered support, often very loving support, for her husband.
On the second day Joachim was almost dead certain to get second place when his brakes failed. Joachim explains: "...I tried to get the car to skid sideways in (to the barrier) so it wasn't too damaged, it didn't work. Fortunately I didn't hit the barrier head on. By my mechanics are probably a bit fed up with me".

And it's here Ulrik Ulriksen comes in, he writes: - ...Onlookers could follow the drama up close and see how Joachim struggled as if possessed behind the wheel in order for things not to go completely wrong when his Cortina smashed into a concrete barrier around the track.
The silence afterwards was deafning on the track where Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix took place. Only the roaring engines from Joachim's competitors who raced past could be heard. - (**)
Joachim lept out of his car and gestured that he was fine, before getting across the barrier to safety where he proceeded to kick the fence in frustration.
Marie was seen hiding her face in her hands and looking shocked. Bette Henrik didn't notice anything, he was busy playing with some mates. Joachim went over to Marie when he was finished kicking the fence and reassured her. Joachim explained afterwards: "I had a couple of minutes with my wife (formal word) inside the tent. She gave me a big hug.
It's probably the pride that has suffered the most. I didn't hurt myself and that was also the first thing I said to or showed to the audience when I jumped out of the car. I showed them and my wife (formal word) that I was alright and you shouldn't be afraid. There is only damage to the equipment and pride. Princess Marie didn't say much when I came in. I could see she was glad to see that I had all limbs intact..... The backing from my wife (informal word) is still there. And when I haven't been hurt and only suffered superficial bruises we can live with that...".

Our Marie and bette Henrik were present on both days in the pit-area. Where bette Henrik in particular enjoyed the view sitting on dad's shoulders, wearing ear protections and enjoying a sausage. - As far as I can tell from the pics, it seems J&M have a little tradition. They kiss before Joachim race and afterwards when he returns to the pit stop.

However, on Saturday Joachim and his team went to a nearby restaurant, Restaurant Bellahøj, and when he arried a wedding party was taking place. Joachim congratulated the happy couple and posed with them. So that was an extra icing on the cake.

(*) Over the years I have come to appreciate and indeed enjoy Ulrik Ulriksen's often flowery articles. This is no exception.

(**) So apart from a lot of noise it was silent.
I love work, it absolutely fascinates me. I can sit for hours looking at people working.

The commercial station 3+ will bring an interview with Joachim tomorrow, where he will be talking to a former race driver, Thorkild Thyrring about the new talents emerging with Danish motoring.

This excerpt is about one minute long and yes, Joachim talks about racing - in a pretty direct manner! But he appears to genuinely know what he is talking about.

Anyway, I realise that racing may not be the a subject many on TRF find particularly interesting, so unless someone really would like to know what he is saying I won't translate.

I love work, it absolutely fascinates me. I can sit for hours looking at people working.
