      Merry Christamas to you "Scandahoovian" types as well! I will stay away
      from Upsalla for the time being! :-) ............ Interesting (to some) is
      that "Voda" is a Slavic standard for "water" and "-ka" (fem.) and "-ek"
      (masc.) are diminutives. most commonly used as terms of affection. "Vodka"
      means, literally, "Little water" and it is likely a "Term of Affection" as
      well.................:-) ........Ya think? ;-) Vesele Vanoce avec un
      Prospero Ano my little friends!!! :-) Lee

      In Swedish we use the word "Brännvin" about vodka, translated it
      is "burned wine". Could be that it was the vikings in England who
      originally used the word "Brandwine"

      Well Merry Christmas on You all
