Cousin Amelia made the first page of Västerbottenskuriren, the local newspaper, a few months ago, and as any proud cousin would, I kept the newspaper. Here she is, flying through the air in a long jump on the school sports day. The caption reads "Unga Hopp," which aptly means both "Young jumps" and "Young hope." Ain't Swedish grand?

 One morning I found the paper on the kitchen table with none other than Erika from my dojo on the first page. She was photographed before her first full-contact competition (which she won, I'll have you know.) Not only is she a lean, mean, blonde and blue-eyed muscle machine, she is also scary good.

"Go ahead, punk. Make my day."
