Spider REUTERS/Issei Kato
A giant mechanical spider operated by members of French company La Machine walks along the waterfront in Yokohama on Friday night. The 37-ton spider, which stands 12 meters tall, is in Yokohama as part of the events celebrating the 150th anniversary of the opening of the Port of Yokohama.

The town of Oulu, Finland located probably 300 miles north of Helsinki. I spent a year there in 1959 doing missionary work among some of the greatest people in the world.

A small agricultural township in central or southern Finland called Karjala or Karelia.

By Agnieszka Flak
HELSINKI (Reuters Life!) – Forget horoscopes and fortune-tellers — steam is the hot way to ensure marital bliss for a bride-to-be in sauna-loving Finland.
A few days before Anna Solovjew’s big day, friends invited her to a bridal initiation in a steam room to ensure good fortune in her married life.
“It was the first time I profoundly thought over what getting married and married life really means,” Solovjew said.
One of her fellow bathers rubbed salt into her back and whipped her with a whisk to chase away all her old loves.
All those present poured milk on the bride’s body symbolically to impart gentleness to her married life and honey to ensure the union would soon produce children.
“After that, I was more ready to tie the knot and was totally sure I wanted to do it,” she said.
The ritual stems from the centuries-old tradition of using a sauna to cleanse the body and the soul.
Finns say the darkness of the room and the scalding hot steam are an escape from everyday troubles and provide an opportunity to indulge in positive thoughts.
The sauna is embedded in Finns’ lifestyle, with one sauna for every three people.
Saunas are found in other parts of the world but the Finns have made it an intrinsic part of their life.
With winter temperatures falling to minus 40 degrees Celsius (minus 40 Fahrenheit) in some parts of the country, in the past the sauna was the room Finns constructed first when building their homes.
“That’s how we survived, because we needed it for the warmth, to wash ourselves and to dry meat,” said Merja Hedman, the head of the 3,800-member Finnish Sauna Society in Helsinki.
OPTIONAL EXTRAS
Routines vary, but the basic idea is the same: basking in temperatures of between 70 to 140 degrees Celsius (160 and 280 Fahrenheit) followed by a quick cool-off.
Having a washing attendant, flaying oneself with birch twigs, plunging into a hole cut into the ice of a frozen lake or rolling in the snow are optional extras.  Continued…

>Wake Up Finland! Welcome to Your Blog

>

In Finland the title of this blog means city, except it is spelled Kaupunki.
I hope that we can develop a Finnish audience and participation on this blog, because that’s what was intended.

Last I heard, the best high tech company in the world, conceived and located in the beautiful land of Finland, Nokia, was laying off some people.
Can someone comment below and tell me about it.

Also, I would like emails from real Finns in English, with facts and figures on any subject they would like to expound on, and that means almost anything in good taste. There are real Finns all over the world — in Canada, America, South America, Europe, Russia, and especially in Finland. Send it with Subject “Cowpunki” to
dusanotes@yahoo.com
Thanks, Don White

>Met Missionary To Finland Today

>His blog was called “Three Score and More, a blogspot site.
http://three-score-and-ten-ormore.blogspot.com/2006/05/mormon-missionaries.html

Here are my comments about Richard B. Johnson’s mission to Finland in 1954 when he was 19 and the clothing and other items he needed to go on a 30-month mission to a cold country which at that time was just recovering from the deprivations of World War II. Though I didn’t arrive until four years later, there were still a lot of things they didn’t have. They certainly were not a prosperous country like Sweden at the time. Though today, Finland probably has the best economy and the highest standard of living per capita of any nation on earth. NOKIA, the telephone and information technology company, has help them immensely. I have always had a positive feeling about my experience and the Finnish people:

Don White said…

Gayle, I labored in Finland under Presidents Phileon Robinson and John Warner from 1958-61 and when I left from Salt Lake City in 1958 much of what you described was the same–including the two-story mission home bunkhouse, the donations (I got about $100 also)at the farewell, though the meeting was in the chapel.

We did take a lot of clothing including long-john garmets and the hat which we discarded halfway through the mission in favor of a fury Russian-style hat that made more sense because it was much warmer and came down over my ears. Elders George McComber ( who is now stake patriarch in American Falls, Idaho), Don Wagstaff, Richard Groberg, Ray (I think) Johnson, and Doug Hardy of Canada all came over on the SS Stockholm to Gothinberg, thence by rail to Stockholm, by ferry to Turkuu, Finland and down to Helsinki.

I served primarily in Lappenranta, Helsinki (where I started with senior companion Gerald Bench), Oulu (with Don Woodward), and opened Kemi and was Branch President in Koukola. Your article was excellent and complete. Keep up the good work.

I was educated at the University of Utah in journalism, later got a law degree and worked many years in the P&C insurance industry, last serving for 8 years as president/CEO of Western National Mutual Insurance Company, a 24-state firm with offices in Minneapolis and Seattle.

I played baseball in college (Elder Groberg said he booed me from his perch on the centerfield grass where I played) and had a $10,000 bonus offer to join the Pittsburg Pirate organization–that was a lot of money in those days–and I turned it down to go on a mission. I’m glad I did.

My wife and I have held a temple recommend all these 43 years of marriage and use it.

I had graduated from college by the time I left, so there were a lot of leadership opportunities including District President and traveling elder, as well as Mission Historian and assistant editor of the Valkeus along with Don Woodward who later worked a long time for the Deseret News. I worked for some magazines, and was an AP newsman in Salt Lake. My wife, Carolyn, and I were married in the Manti Temple in 1965 and we have four marvelous children, all now living in Florida where we live. I was just released as high priest group leader and am employment director in the Windermere Ward which is part of the Orlando South Stake, located across the street from the LDS Temple where I worked for several years until health problems made it impossible. I do a lot of freelance writing and tend 18 blogs including
http://DonWhitePortfolio.blogspot.com
http://politicaldisconnect.blogspot.com
YankeesWizard.blogspot.com
ChristensenWhite.blogspot.com
WOWemployment.blogspot.com
and several others.

I met a visitor to our Ward from Utah, Todd Smith, last Sunday. He had served under Pres. Melvin Luthy, who was in the mission when I was there, eventually 2nd counselor. It’s a small world. Elder Luthy was a missionary’s missionary. The best.

Hope to see you sometime in Orlando soon. Our Ward currently meets 1 p.m. but we’ll go to the 9 a.m. time in January.
Nakeimeen, Veli Johnson
