Ole, forgive me... :-)

I am well aware that my small list of traits is not accurate, Germany is a bit more than my description suggests.

And I have been living in Norway for quite a while, so in spirit I am a norwegian.

As for the "deutschsprachiges Forum", I am able to read enough to get the gist of what is said. I'll take a peek now and then "over there".
