We had a good time in Norway this summer, but I'm sorry to report that conditions have changed since we were there. There is a serious disaster underway. Of course, I'm talking about the butter shortage. According to Reuters, a new low-carb diet in Norway has got people there eating much more fatty food, mostly butter.

I've said it before. Butter may kill you, but its probably worth it. Be sure you spell my name right when you quote me on that one.
