Many thanks for a bundle of laughs. The comment about the Swedish, Danish, and Norwegian being the same language except that the Norwegians can't spell it and the Danes can't pronounce it is borne out by the following true story that my best Danish friend told me. One time she was reading a book, and she noticed that there were an awful lot of misspelled words in the text. Eventually she realized that she was reading Norwegian. Isidora
