      Isn't he from Ballard? The large number of Norwegian immigrants overwhelmed most of the other Norse-based communities in Puget Sound. Ballard and Poulsbo alone count(ed) for the majority in past years, but with greater numbers of non-Norse residents beginning in the 60's, that generality is pretty moot now.

      Even Swedes are out-numbered by the Norse in Washington state. As for me, my German-Irish-American ancestors found a home away from home...

      Dori: what a maroon!
