In Norway they have a place called "Helvete" (Hell) and in winter it get's very cold "down there"

I'm happy I'm living in such a "warm" country..

Nah I doubt it ever would get that cold.. I'm sorry..

Well, of course it is cold here, but I'd rather use words like slushy, sloppy etc. about the traditional Danish winter.

The weather in Denmark sucks in any way it can, though.. :roll:

Yanuary was like that here too :roll: But February started with a very cold weather.
I read a funny joke:
Finland do not have so friendly neighgours :P From Russia we get frosty weather and from Sweden blizzards. :lol: And of course our geographical position has nothing to do with it :P :lol:

:D It's not FINLANDS' fault the equators in the wrong place.....

What you could DO to confuse the cold weather patterns from Russia and Sweden is to RENAME yourself as AFRICA or SPAIN.....

OR

Tell Russia and Sweden that you have your own weather patterns and that you don't need theirs, thank you so very much. And kindly ask them to keep their own weather to themselves.

Spike..... :D

If any of these ideas work....I take cash Or cheques....though I prefer cash.... Pounds stirling if you'd be so kind....
