As I'm going to mention (to the few who may be interested) the existence of the this blog prior to our trip, I thought I'd post a few lines just to confirm that, yes, this is the right place.

. . .Having done so, there's nothing left to say. ;o)

Ok, I thought of something else!

There are a few pertinent links to the right, including one to my Flickr account, where you can find some of the photos we take during our vacation. There are also links to just two of the groups on Flickr devoted to Sweden and/or Scandinavia-- lots of beautiful photographs there.

You can also sneak a peek at what the weather's like in Säffle (where we'll be, most of the time), via the webcam link. And the weather widget informs you of the weather in Göteborg (aka "Gothenburg"). On the map I'm looking at, Göteborg appears to be about 106 miles from Säffle (as the crow flies). Karlstad, which has its own widget, is closer-- only about 27 miles away-- but I couldn't find a fancy widget for it-- one with forecasts and maps and temperatures in my precious, beloved Fahrenheit (Celsius stinks! :oP), so I included both cities. (g)

(Thank you, Google Earth, for allowing me to take those measurements.)

Check back here later (family will know exactly when) to read about our trip.

Thanks for reading, and please feel free to comment whenever the mood strikes you. :o)

P.S. I also just added a slideshow that (if I added it correctly (g)) should show the Flickr photos we take in Sweden. (Right now, there's just a place-holder photo of Molly and Daisy, but that should change soon.) You can still go to this page to see the photos, too.

P.P.S. Maybe I should remove that jab at Celsius' system, seeing as he was Swedish. Do you think they'll still let me in the country. . . ? ;o)
