Thanks Tord!

Sweden, Sweden, Sweden...

Wait one sec--aren't you Norwegian?


No, no, no! I am utterly Swedish, but possibly some percentage Bohemian, as an ancestor got mixed into the 30-year war somehow, switching from glass blowing trade to the military, and when the Swedes returned to Sweden he was part of the gang.

So for hundreds of years, we've had glassblowers and military people in my family.

Generals, colonels, and master glassblowers.

But 99% or so, Swedish.

Sorry about the mistake Tord!  I don't really know why, but I always thought you were Norwegian.     And I appreciate the brief explanation of your genealogy, too.  Master glassblowers and distinguished military men--very cool!
