About Arto...

I'm about 60 years old and love writing articles and reading biography and historic books. I also like to watch different kind of films, mostly drama and documentaries.
I have a wife and three kids. Daughter 15 years old and twin sons 9 years old. This is my second family. I have 5 adult children too.
We live in a small town called Järvenpää, about 40 kilometers to the north from capital Helsinki.
Järvenpää is my birthplace and I also like to tell that this small place is a hometown of the greatest finnish composer Jean Sibelius (1865-1957)too. He lived here from 1904 till his death 1957. You can search from YouTube e.g. "Be still my soul" or "Finlandia" and you'll know what and who I mean.
One of my hobbies is collecting teabag-envelopes from any countries I can get. I have done this since 1973 and I have almost 2000 pcs at this moment. You can send me one or some(with tea).
Especially I like get postcard, which is subject matter of:
1. Volkswagen Beetle or Citroën 2 CV
2. Marilyn Monroe, Elvis Presley, James Dean
3. Tintin comic characters
4. Asterix comic characters
5. City by night (examp. text: Paris by night, Tokio by night), which is black and nothing else, except moon ;)
6. Citylight at night or twilight time.
