My full name is Roland Lennart Jörgen Svensson, but I am called by the name Jörgen. Jörgen, by the way, means approximately "one that makes use of the soil" or with a more modern interpretation: "farmer". I was born in 1969, January 30th. I am raised in Jämjö, which is a village located about 20 kilometres east of Karlskrona, in the very south-east corner of Sweden.
This is where I now live my life in a big yellow house. Since february 2004, I live together with my girlfriend Malena.
And we have also a cat, who (sometimes) listen to the name "Tiger". He is a about 6 years old very kind cat, who has a bit uncertain pedigree... ;)
But he is a very skilled hunter, with mice, rats, rabbits and hares on the repertoire.. (Probably birds as well, but I haven't seen it...)
Sadly, Tiger got quickly very ill, and died, December 30, 2005. He became about 8 years old.

Having a house, we have no lack of things needing to be done.
Everything from painting the windows to pruning the apple trees covers more or less all our spare time... However, some times you need to have a break from those things, and then we do things together. Usually we take the car and drive somewhere in an exploring kind of way...
Both Malena and I enjoys visiting all kinds of auctions, flea markets, antiques and second hand stores... By doing this, we ventilate our urge for buying and collecting things.. ;) Well, we have actually found a lot of beautiful objects this way. Paintings, books, lamps and candlesticks, old radios, and a lot of other things. Furthermore, this is very good way to find gifts and presents for people you care for, for birthdays, christmas and other occasions.
We also like sometimes to go out fishing, as pure relaxation, even though we don't always catch fish. Sometimes we do not even want to catch anything but a relaxing moment together.
