But Roger, near our summer home, where there's a strong Scandinavian influence, we can buy mugs with "uff da" on them, and books of Ole and Lena jokes! I bet you can't buy much that's Mongolian!!

HA HA HA HA HA! No, you're right Marilyn. We can't even buy "uffda" mugs, nor Ole and Lena books!

Did you know that the norwegians who worked the Hawaiian sugarcane fields in the 17th century were called "akkameis". It's from "akka meg" which losely translates to "Oh dear oh dear". They were not used to the heat so they moaned "akkameg" all the time.

Which reminds me my first dialog with a native Hawaiian. She entered our hotelroom with breakfast saying, Aloha. I answered Halloja. Which translates to Hi there! She repeated it, ..... so did I. Then she gave up, thinking whatever she was thinking.
