ABC - G
New week - new ABC challenge:
The original ABC challenge derived from Denise Nesbitt from Yorkshire in England and Petunia brought the challenge to Norway; but since my Blog is written in a kind of English, I've given me a doubble challenge: The objects must begin with the same letter or sound in both Norwegian and English.
How about that? Do you take the challenge?
This weeks letter is G.
What does G means?
Ha-ha- it's not a G-string or a G-man.
“G” represents philosophy. People with a “G” in their name probably like to educate themselves in all aspects of religion. Some do not stick with just one belief but want to know the whole of religion and what makes it tick. Anything transcendental harbors fascination for them. Continue here
My regular readers do know I also do try to find words/objects beginning with the same letter that in a way is typical for Norway and also my dear blogreaders around the globe can have some pleasure to have an insight into - a wider view but Fjords and Fish (last weeks solutions).
Let's start with the nature. Grey - Grå
From a Season all Norwegians are very happy to be history each Spring:
Grey sky - Colourless and Grey Snow. In Norwegian Grå - if your Computer can not interprete the last letter: It's an "a-ring" - pronounced like the "o" in over. You have allready learned something new. (Sorry, my hair colour was not available from this computer's Picture Library. LOL)
This Week's main solution to the ABC contest is very close to Norwegians daily life. All generations. Even my Dear Mother.
All Norwegians do have strong feelings to it. Even when abroad, it's a must to bring in their travelling accerories. Even bring to their foreign friends)
Something that for Norwegians are at least as common as to be born with Ski's on their feet:
The Norwegian Gout Cheese or Geitost.
Haha - you have learned another Norwegian Word;))
(It's even on sale in USA, Canada, Denmark, Sweden and some other Countries)

In fact, it's not really a Cheese. But, well, a Whay Cheese.
That means, the maturationprocess is terminated before the mould starts working.

Above is the Tool (with an international Club) all Norwegian kids learned, from very young, to use when they wanted Goat Cheese; the taste of the sweet and brown cheese: The Cheese Slicer, which we use also for cutting Cucumbers, Zuccinis, Raddish, hard Bananas, Butter directly from the Fridge etc. In fact, Norwegians are of some reasons proud of the fact the Inventor of the Cheese Slicer was from Lillehammer, Norway (Winter Olympics site in 1994).
(In Norway most of the Brown Cheese consists more Cow Milk than Goat Milk. Due to kids taste (milder). We prefere 100% Gout Milk).
Some more about Norwegian Cheese...

At least, you can enjoy the photos, and comment in your own language.
Someone in the Blogsphere will understand and help to translate. OK?
Have a wonderful weekend.
Ha en flott helg (Norwegian)
