Thank you for the nice words, Friends! Another year left in the history, and now looking forward to the next one!
I retired in April and this gives me more time to things that are close to my heart: family first (love my role as grandfather), get-togethers with friends, this wonderful (and sometimes also funny and crazy ;-) ) community of Cohenites, books that are waiting to be read... For the time being the big renovation of our house takes a lot (=all) of my energy. One of our friends asked me: don't you have too much free time now when you're no more working as an auditor. I thought he must be joking :lol:

Happy Birthday Jarkko, and enjoy retirement. I can confirm that most of the time it feels as busy as a working life - but mainly with things one chooses!
