Welcome to the forum,

My sister's name is Randi. Supposed to be pronounced "rondee" but few here in the US say it right and she dosn't correct them.

Pictures of Norway would be well received on the forum.

Welcome aboard.

I hope to get to Norway this summer and cruise up the Oslo Fjord to fulfill a dream that got its start over 50 years ago as I gazed at the Oslofjord or Sagafjord, docked right out my window,which was opposite Pier 45 of the Norwegian American Line in NYC.
