Second Edition * Hokanews * Tenth issue - 2000-04-17
"The Truth The Whole Truth And Nothing But The Truth"
Plus gossips, rumors, lies and pure fiction


This mail is way over due, but I need to get it out of my system.
There is a new Hokanews coming soon that is more "in tune" with reality.
In the meantime you just have to settle with this one.
Note the date! That's when I originally tried to send it.
Also, it is  not the 10th issue! I sort  of made a mistake! It's the 11th bleeding


a month late, but here's the latest Hokanews with just a short
message to let you know that I did survive Mexico and are back
in Stockholm sorting out my life.
At the moment I am working as a consultant to the Swedish Army,
The Marine Defense, while starting up my own company. So it's
pretty hectic right now, but I'll let you know what's happening
as soon as I know! :-)

Otherwise things are as usual - although the weather is getting
better every day now.

Hokans Top Five List

1) Cigars
Never in my life I thought I would say this, but cigars
have improved my quality of life considerably this year!
Now I am saving up to my first Humidor! :-)

2) Mexico
Despite Topes(*), pollution, Traffic and corruption this
place is something extra special! I love it.
When driving you really get the feeling that you're a
perfect mix of Niki Lauda and a jet fighter pilot!

3) Heroes del Silencio
A Spanish rock group which I have re-discovered. As I
hardly can understand Spanish I haven't got a clue what
they sing about, but it's great anyway!

4) Michelada
Lime, salt, more lime, Corona or Dos Equis and more lime.
Add ice and sit back and relax. Preferably on a beach.
After my recent Mexico trip I am now known as Mr. Michelada.
Then there is the "proper" version with Tabasco etc, making
Michelada become more of a "Beer Bloody Mary", which is not
bad either. Try it...

5) Brooklyn
Now the Swedish Systembolaget has three different flavors
of the Brooklyn beer family. I never had a beer quite like
this, and I still love it.

Famous Last Words:

"Why yes honey, I do think you look fat in that dress."
"Excuse me, I'm a tourist, and I'm lost."
"What duck?"
"These are the good kind of mushrooms."
"I can do that with my eyes closed."
"Now watch this."
"Nice doggie."

Until next time,

Have a great one, or as my hero Mr. Stefan Krook would say:
"Give gas and have fun"


(*) Topes are road bumps that is every where and on every street
to make people drive slower. No-one is the other alike, and
if you are the slightest sick or need to urgently visit the
bathroom, they are hell. But Mexico would just not be the same
without them.

Won't you take me   back?
