A long hall planned for May with Junior.

Iceland's a nice land!

The dried cod is not as good a fresh smoked eel, but it makes a good snack.

If you have time, the main ring road is a very nice drive -- lots of foss and glaciers to visit.
We plan to drive from Reykavik all the way up to Akureyei and myVatn and spend 4 days there. Then travel by a comma-odious vicus of recirculation back to Thingfellir and environs.
Excellent!

Myvatn is a lot of fun with many thermal and volcanic features. I recommend singing to the midges if they are out and about (not sure what they'd think of drums, though.) Dettifoss is nearby if you like walking up to a very large waterfall on basalt columns that are about to drop into the abyss.

And don't forget the hverabrauð (hot spring bread) baked by burying a pot of rye bread dough in the sands of a hot spring.

Fantastic!  And for me in May:

I wouldn't be able to wait until May :-) Especially that Barcelona is warm and sunny already in March. It's worth visiting Casa Batlló inside to appreciate not only Gaudi's unique artistic style, but also his engineering thought.
Casa Milá looks quite amazing too:

If you are staying in the popular among tourists Barrio Gótico (I prefer El Born), Monasterio de Santa Ana organises chamber music concerts (Spanish guitar!) on the weekends, afair. Apart from that, nightlife.

Great suggestions - thanks very much.  More time in this wintery climate first, but fresh snow fall, the skiing is good!

All HHs are eccentric, but some are more eccentric than others. It's a  true anomoly.

Tokio Hirano; he trained the top Dutch judoka

He said of Willem Ruska; 2nd rate and 5th rate on the ground. Ruska learned a lot from him.

Hirano advised Ruska to train for hand grip power whenever possible, stair climbing and hip strengthening.
It paid off.

My guess is it's Tokio Hirano. Judokas don't do judo anymore. It has been ruined by Russians and Georgia,

Looks like the same to me! The way he jumps to prevent getting rotated and then pushed back to lift the other guy is not something you would think of as it happens.
