From Czechs to Finns

Apropos to my reference to Seasonal Affective Disorder, Dirk (who spends time in Finland each summer) tells me that in Finland the national health system provides storefront sun lamps, in Helsinki at least, where one can go and cheer up. I don't think there is anything like this in Prague.
Since Jesse returned from our non-ski trip with a cold, he is amusing himself by turning to Finnish linguistics. While I am tempted by that sort of thing myself, reading about it usually satisfies the craving. So... you too can read about it and get a good laugh. (I admit it, some of my "Norwegian" ancestors migrated south from Finland in the 17th century, so just think, presumably they spoke a language with even more cases than Czech!)
