ABC #10 - J


New week - new ABC challenge: The letter J
(kommenter gjerne på norsk, svensk eller dansk)

Since my Blog is written in a kind of English, I've given me a double challenge: The objects must begin with the same letter or sound in both Norwegian and English.
How about that? Do you take the challenge?

Here: Some facts about the Letter J

If your name starts with J:
“J” is the letter representing ambition. They readily take on any task they think will help them reach their goals more quickly.
Ambition and eagerness tend to dominate their lives. The need for movement is so powerful; the “J” person has a hard time being still. Read more...

Let us start like the year does. With the first month of the Year, according to the western calendar.

And very Norwegian.
As many of my readers around our Globe do think about Norway
.
January - januar

This Photo is scanned from an old Slide, in the Hills of Oslo, Norway

Other Months beginning with J: June - Juni and July - Juli.
Our Sumerhome is up in the Hills in the background. You see, we have nice Summers in Norway as well.
Jarlsberg Cheese - Jarlsberg ost

First time I did visit my Son in Michigan, we among others went to a Cheese Shop in Holland, Michigan. To have something else but the Pre-Sliced American Cheddar. We asked for the owners first choice:
- It's without doubt Jarlsberg, he said.
- Why, I asked
Then he started a long, fantastic and very engaged explanation. About this Norwegain Cheese, sold World wide.
- I'm impressed, I replied, we will have two pounds please.
After we had payed, I showed him my Passeport.
The shop-owner smile widely and then he gave us some of his second choice: Emmenthaler from Switzerland;))
And said thank you and good luck, have a nice stay here in Michigan etc etc

Jotunheimen (Home of the Giants) - Jotunheimen

The highest Mountain range in the Nordics (Smörstabbreen - Glacier in the background)

And now let's continue Globaly
Jew - Jöde

This photo was taken in the Holocaust Memorial in Miami Beach, Florida, USA. 6 million Jews names are written on the Walls. Some people denies Holocaust.
Jungle - Jungel

This photo is taken in the Jungle on the Argentinian side of the fantastic Iguazu Water Falls
Here is from our visit . Relaxe and enjoy. You deserve it.

Japan - Japan

Here is a photo from the Japanese Garden in Portland, Oregon (USA)
- we did visit in 2006


And here is my dear blog-friend Ghee and her daughter. They live in Japan.

Well this is it for this weeks ABC - did you learn some more Norwegian?
Just comment Yes - No - don't know or I do not understand English;))

Have a great Weekend - we will be very busy - so stay tuned.
More to come.....


PS. When you have comment all other ABC - J entries, I recommend you to come back here and click on the different links. Lots to learn and enjoy.
The original ABC challenge derived from Denise Nesbitt from Yorkshire in England and Petunia brought the challenge to Norway.
Since my Blog is written in a kind of English, I've given me a double challenge: The objects must begin with the same letter or sound in both Norwegian and English.
How about that? Do you take the challenge? To learn some Norwegian.

Mange flotte J'er her! Jazz er ikke min favorittmusikk, men noe av det er jo lyttbart;)
Et lite tips fra meg. Når du legger deg inn på mr. Linky så godtar du det alternativet som automatisk kommer opp på link til innlegget ditt. Det er hver gang ditt bidrag # 4 for D. Hvis du manuelt kopiere ukens boksav innleggs link og limer det inn, så får vi rett innlegg opp hver gang. Litt lettere for dem som ikke er så kjent i bloggverden og ikke vet hvordan de skal finne ditt nyeste ABC innlegg.
Ha en fin helg!

What great photos! But that Japanese Garden has really caught my eye. I'd love to visit since the drive shouldn't be all that long... You must tell me more information! :)

You certainly covered a lot of "J"s! I loved the story from Michigan (it shows the value/resourcefullness of Jarlsberg's PR department).

Kjempeflott innlegg på J. Artig opplevelse med Jarlsbergosten. Og sterkt fra Holocaust Memorial. Da vi var i Jerusalem besøkte vi Holocaustmusèet + barnemusèet. Der var det heilt mørkt bare med små lys (stjerner) og navn og alder på drepne barn vart lest opp. Sterkt. Eg hadde gåsehud på kroppen og tårer i augene !!

Veldig flott løsning på oppgaven. Her har du virkelig vært kreativ og tatt deg god tid!

Kjepebra du skriver på engelsk. Har tenkt på det selv, men har ikke kommet i gang.

Ønsker deg en fortsatt fin helg!
