The swedish/norwegian/danish voting

Hi, Nils and everyone else!
I looked up the swedish place and placed my vote on Den finurlige Farbror
Joakim, whatever it's called in English, sorry I don't remember. I was
surprised to see so extremely many votes on the squared egg in the Andes
story. Ok, it's a good one, but is it so outstanding good compared to the
other stories? So I'm going with Nils' theory about the deafult being
chosen by mistake...

Öhm.... Nope, the Swedish language doesn't use apostrophes when making a
name in 'owner'-form (i e in my case: the book of Theresa --> Theresas
book. So when a name already ends with an s, it looks the same. I don't
know about Danish and Norwegian, though...

Yep. Silly!

But the result gives a lot of votes for the places with no names... I
wonder what people voted there...

Now, I'll say KVACK! (swedish) for now... (I haven't written to the list
for quite a while... I wonder how many people are out there lurking just
like me! :)
