  • Stockholm, Sweden - Apart from the Natives, us Americans are all immigrants and some of us identify our personal gene pool as homeland. My mother-in-law identified Sweden as the birthplace of her DNA. At her request her ashes were to be dropped into the Baltic.

    My wife and I are walking around the old town and I look up.

    Danger - take notice of the two active children holding hands. They are a big bald sister and little brother. The sister isn't put together too well and the little boy... well you know how unpredictable little boys can be.
