Yes, yes!

Although it should be said that it isn't so long since it was last painted, but it's very exposed to hard weather.

''Louie lives with a chromosome defect. He is the world's most beautiful little dog. Don't think the owners have meant anything bad with describing him as a dog with down's.''

The biography was then changed to ''Boston terrier living the good life with my Mommy: @julianesnekkestad and daddy: @marius_borg.''

Well, well, well, that was just asking for trouble!!!
First with the text and second with CP MM posting the link. Yes, the media even got a main article on VG-online out of it (which is Norway's largest news-website with over 2 million daily readers) - plus that it was mentioned on TV2 News Channel.

Well, that's nothing!

It's not just the countryside. I mean almost the whole country is full of either fjords and islands or mountains and valleys.

So treat yourself a visit. - But be aware of the high prices.

BTW: I have been holidaying in Lofoten this summer (an archipelago and traditional district with several Fishing villages in the breathtaking Northern Norway region).

Here are some photos: 1 - 2 - 3 - 4

Her comment presumably did not help matters either. It sounds at least that Mr. Borg Høiby quickly corrected his gaffe.

Princess Ingrid Alexandra participated in the inspection of the bats in Skaugum.

The bats in Skaugum are annually controlled to maintain an overview of the stock.

I've heard about batcaves but not battrees.

The man standing next to her in the photo with Ingrid on the ladder is that a batman?

- The bad bat jokes are lining up! Better go to bed.

If you check the comments you'll see that Gwyneth Paltrow herself have written a comment. Crown Princess Mette-Marit and Gwyneth have been close friends for many years.

Apparently, Prince Andrew wasn't the only royal to meet the late and disgraced Jeffrey Epstein. Crown Princess Mette-Marit is now apologizing for meeting with Epstein after his conviction for soliciting an underage prostitute, including one meeting at his house.

More on the story here:

Mette Marit has pulled an Andrew.

https://www.bt.dk/royale/norsk-kronp...u-beklager-hun
https://www.dn.no/politikk/jeffrey-e...det/2-1-715469

And in English: https://www.dn.no/utenriks/jeffrey-e...hly/2-1-716538

It is confirmed she met with Jeffrey Epstein several times at his home between 2011-2013. That is after he was convicted of sexual abuse.
They met through mutual acquaintances, MM esplains.
The meetings took place in USA but one took place in Norway.

The meeting were always social events, meaning that they were never alone.
MM decided to sever the connection with Epstein when she learned that he used to connection with her, to reach other persons.

MM has through the court issued a statement:
Jeg ville aldri hatt noe med Epstein å gjøre dersom jeg hadde vært klar over alvorlighetsgraden av hans kriminelle handlinger. Jeg burde undersøkt Epsteins fortid nærmere, og beklager at jeg ikke gjorde det.
Gjennom mitt langvarige arbeid med internasjonale helsespørsmål har jeg sett på nært hold de store skadene seksuelle overgrep påfører barn og kvinner. Vi har alle medansvar for å bekjempe seksuelle overgrep og støtte ofrene, og jeg ønsker å uttrykke min dype sympati og solidaritet med ofrene for de overgrep Jeffrey Epstein har begått.

The court and MM declines to elaborate further.

I suppose it is good damage control to get ahead of the story and go public with this matter.

Apparently Haakon met him once, when MM and him came across Epstein while walking around in St. Barths.

I think one can hardly compare the two cases...


What are they trying to do? Blame everyone who ever was in contact or socialised with the guy?!

I believe Muhler is referring to MM attempting to get ahead of any announcements by announcing herself and apologising for it.

If I remember correctly Mette-Marit and Haakon had been criticized before over their friendships and associating with the "rich jetset"....

It's good that MM has put out a statement but the question remains why the contact remained even after he was convicted.
