Why are people paranoid on Friday the 13th? There are a lot of stories ranging from the bible to the Canterbury Tales.
One of the most popularised myths attempting to explain the origin of the Friday 13 superstition stems from events on Friday 13 October 1307, when hundreds of Knights Templar were arrested and burnt across France.
This myth caught the public’s attention after it was used by Dan Brown, among other historical fiction writers, and has been peddled endlessly by conspiracy theorists linking the Knights Templar to everything from Freemasonry to the Holy Grail.
Don’t be a Drumpf, enjoy the day and dance your troubles away. Don Pico’s Bistro also has amazing food.

Elegance and Beauty are making a Comeback in Finland
Jere Hietala, Photography
Jere Hietala’s unique style has brought him international acclaim. Jere Hietala prefers to work with fashion designers, advertising agencies, and major music labels. He was awarded the First prize in a national Finnish Photography contest.
“I aim to create timeless and meaningful images that reflect the mood of our time by using dramatic stories in all fields of photography. My subjects are caught in between the worlds of reality and fiction. A photograph tells a story, it can be seen as a silent film. To me, photography is like devising a carefully planned renaissance painting, where artistic form is coherent with the intellectual content. I create the style depending on the subject matter. The technical details and direction are as important as the idea.
Each photograph has to be perfect, like a heightened hyper-reality. Digital manipulation of the picture can be a useful technique, but only if it is stylistically consistent with the idea itself.” — Okko Oinonen
Snow Queen and many others.

They are famous for their ability to make the most advantage of light. Their photoshoots are flawless. They are fun to work with.
Nina is like a samurai in the package of a butterfly. Kalervo has seen many dancers and to him she is the best in the world. She is rising out of the earth with strength and grace. He is not alone. The press celebrates her all around the world, here is one quote by Auli Räsänen.
“Nina Hyvärinen surprised by her sensual solo The Rite in which her emphatic body bent to the choreography showing the influence of the African. Supple pelvis, shigering muscles and breathing dance – all were enjoyable to see.
Hyvärinen walks her own ways and it feels now that she has taken off her uniform of the ballerina. I hope that she keeps her career as a wide contemporary dancer – in a field which she is ideal for herself”.
