Plus Norway has a, to put it rather mildly, a privileged position, due to the ginormous black, slimy substance reserves ...

Well, to be fair - who cannot but love Norway anyway ...

(A a side remark, I was re-visiting Joanna Lumley's trip to look for the Northern Lights there the other day, which is accompanied by Grieg music. Really recommended: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GZ8xd6xnZ9U ...)

Thank you so much for sharing that link!  It was wonderful...made me cry to see her so happy and enjoyed watching the video of the lights.

Another Brexit "benefit" for the brits:

Tesco products will disappear from S-Market (a BIG supermarket chain here in Finland) because importing the products into Finland has become difficult due to GB's 3rd country status post Brexit. The French Carrefour is planning to fill the gap left by the British retailer.
Spatial distortion is a serious problem deteriorating headphone listening.
Crossfeeders reduce spatial distortion and make the sound more natural
and less tiresome in headphone listening.

At least Carrefour is good, we've been hoping for them here for quite a long time (no Tescos here, but there is/was some in the Czech Republic, for example).

Yes, one could hope to experience that phenomenon some time. Requires circumstances and logistics suitable for a winter trip into rather remote areas, however.

I was amazed at how many layers of clothing she had to put on!  ???

Loved watching Ab Fab!  First show that I recall seeing her on here in the States.

Yes, Ab Fab was unusually funny ;D .

I don't know much about her earlier career, but she had been a minor star for quite a lot of decades, apparently.
Amazing how she's similar in ... 1968: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3rgiZMYSFsA

I always felt sorry for the daughter.   ;)

Oh, neat!  Have you watched any of her travel shows?  From the one segment that I saw, they look like they would be quite interesting.

She is a bit of a national treasure, PD. I found out about her musical director husband when she appeared on "Desert Island Discs". Yes, I have followed her travel shows, the best I thought, was India. The visit to the Golden Temple was absolutely amazing.

Nice to read that.  I will look to see if I can watch that one on India somewhere.  :)
