Our team was pretty new, many rookies on the field, and it was displayed in their game. I'm sorry, but I don't have many positive things to say. Maybe we saw some sparks here and there, nothing more than that though, and one wonders why Portugal didn't score on some very open opportunities.

This will be the first portugese match, with Carlos Queiroz as manager.
The match will be shown, on various stations, and there will probably be some pages with live-scores. But, after the match, i'll give my thoughts on the match.

The reasons for this situation, are too complicated to get into details about, so i'll give the short version. A very important bill, concerning the future of our fishery industry (about reducing the fishing-days of most vessels, by 20%. It's also got some other technicalities), was to be voted on. A member of the Party, didn't agree with this, and he put forward a supplemental draft, which said the days should only be reduced by 10%. All of the Republican Party, except this one guy, voted for the 20%. When that supplemental draft, was voted, at made it through, and thus, there's to be a 10% reduction, instead of the 20%.
The leader of the Party, Høgni Hoydal, said before all this. That if his (Heine O. Heinesen) 10%, were voted through, the Party would no longer be a part of the coalition.
As it is now, there's been no formal announcement made, whether this holds up or not. And we're kind of in a waiting-zone.

Read more about it here.
He's gotten many plaudits, during his stay with Blackburn Rovers, but hasn't really broken the barrier into the first team line-up.
On a personal note, I only see this as a new challenge for Gunnar. This is not a step down the ladder. He's very young still, and has got many years ahead of him.

Statistics Faroe Islands, also says that the population has risen at the beginning of the year, but then declined at the latter part of the year.
This has led to, that the population has only risen by 250 people, from 1 July, 2004 to 1 July 2008.

Two brave adventurers set off today in an attempt to be the first to paddle kayaks from Scotland to the Faroe Islands.
Patrick Winterton and Mick Berwick hope northerly winds will have calmed enough to allow them to set off on the 255-mile voyage from Stornoway on what has been labelled the “Mount Everest of kayak trips”...

Yesterday (Aug. 3), the monument, which was built for the first time, in the 1930's, was inaugurated. This because, it's been fully restored last year, and now, the plaques have been renewed.
I helped in the restoration of this monument.
Pictures from the event are here.

I think one has taken many steps up the ladder, when one finds himself, in such company as Sting, Alanis Morisette, Suzanne Vega, Moby, and several more.
I could tell you more about this project, but it's explained very well at this link.

As I mentioned, the US-based swimsuit-maker, TYR, has contacted Pál Joensen, and offered him, to provide him with free swim-gear. They have this super-suit, which they will provide him with. They see a large marketing potential in Pál.
Pál hasn't decided yet, whether to go by this offer or not, but he's been given a free suit though, which he used, when he won the 400m Freestyle gold. It's called Tracer Light.
Here is a photogallery from the event.
Here's a YouTube-clip from when the medals were given, in the 400m Freestyle event.
The Faroese Prime Minister, has sent Pál Joensen, a congratulatory letter, in which he says, that Pál Joensen has achieved the highest Faroese sporting endeavour ever. And he also thanks him, for giving Faroe Islands, international recognition.
