Did you know?

1.  It's normal to eat lunch around 11am, and dinner at approximately 3 or 4pm.  They have a 4th meal "kveldsmat" at 8pm or 9pm, but it's usually small - bread and cheese or a dessert of some sort.

2.  There isn't any real "junk food" at the grocery store, (Twinkies, Ding Dongs, Doritos, etc), which is a good thing, I suppose.

3.  I wholeheartedly agree with the Norwegian saying, there is no such a thing as bad weather, only bad clothes.

4.  A common joke:  When a stranger smiles at you in the street, they assume A.  he/she is drunk, B.  he/she is insane, C.  he/she is American, or D. all of the above. 

Skål!  (Cheers!)
