I've always been interested in languages, and as I've learned I've tried to dig into the history of the words. Like learning about church slavonic and the Russian language. Once you've dug into that history, you begin to see that almost all languages are logical (and beautiful) in that way.

I heard that Sara Takanashi was training in Helsinki just like last winter.

I love Sara Takanashi , as a fan not a stalker.

We don't get a lot of lasting snow cover because of the way the Gulf Stream warms our climate.
There are a few places such as the tops of the Cairngorms that do but it's never as good as the Alps and they are so near a Ski industry has never grown here.
We had one Ski jumper in the Olympics, famous as he was so bad Eddie (the Eagle) Edwards.

I lack the imagination for a witty signature.

proqpen,
there are lots of people in Minnesota with Finnish ancestry.

And there are several Concordia Language Villages in Moorhead, Minnesota (not only Finnish).

Ya, we've been to a few of Concordia's International Days. The kids always loved it when they were younger.

JJ -

Afrikaans also uses "Jah-no" - but you have to gauge whether that's a yes or a no.

Also confusing to non-native Afrikaans-speakers!

This is how Canadians get rid of bears. Only in Canada, you say!
