Ima Norwegian

Posted by Geeky Swedes on April 29th, 2012

Funny guys Tim Hunter and Frank Shiers bring a little Scandihoovian humor to MyBallard in a weekly cartoon called Ima Norwegian.

Ima Norwegian is a life-time Ballard resident who lives in a modest home with her husband Lars. Both are Ballard High School graduates (Go Beavers) but you’ll have to really dig to figure out which year they graduated. Ima won’t willingly offer her age, but will admit that it rhymes with ‘nifty-something’. Ima said she would only appear in the cartoon if we featured her in her traditional Norwegian bunad. And remember, she only needs her glasses for reading. Her two kids are out on their own, in the area and close enough that they occasionally stop by. Ima believes it’s because they miss their mother and they just happened to also need to do their laundry.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.

    To start with off, allow me advise you not to pay back attention to any of the things you can acquire in the software.
    Some of this profits arrives from impatient players who will not want to
    hold out 30 minutes to get their future no
    cost lifetime (or troll their Facebook friends for
    them like a crackhead bumming alter), so they pony-up $. Individuals must
    follow too much caution, and organizations ought to put in safeguards in purchase to steer clear of the 2nd coming of Ransomware.
