    oh yeah! it's a fun country..people are genuine...when they hear i'm irish, they figure we all luv to drink, so they like to excersize their formidabile drinking muscles. the countryside is pristine..most folks have or obtain a summer house..usually on lake w sauna, lots of bbq and situated on a cold lake...always a good time

    We had a sauna manufactured in Finland in the home my brothers and I grew up. Some of us, not me would go from the sauna to the snow. That was not for me!! I'd go from the sauna to the shower and cool off gradually. The Fins are some of the finest and strongest people in the world. Look at where they stand in the world and what they manufacture.

    Well, I now have to climb around to see my system, but the boys are already 3 and 6 and it seems like I had no children just yesterday...so I will share my space and I will miss them as kids before I know it. Spoil her...

    Losing your cave is a very small price to pay especially since you'll be gaining that little cutie! :)
