That's very interesting, Kayella - and yes, many Latvians emigrated to the U.S. During the World Wars - maybe you have a Latvian name or surname? :)

To those who like winter fuzzies - here's our fuzziest herdmate, a Latvian draft gelding -

My last name is Strals. My dad's first name is Ivars, that's been passed down to the firstborn son each generation. Maybe they are latvian?

Yeah, they are definantely Latvian, especially Ivars - that's a traditional name for men in Latvia even in nowadays! :)

Haha, I thought so! My dad said it was basically as common as "John" in Latvia. You have no idea how many people do not know how to pronounce my dad's name Well, you actually might!

My oldest son was friends with twin brothers named, Kaspar and Guntis Dredzels all through Jr. High and Sr. High School - they were born and raised in Latvia, and their parents moved here to northern MI (United States) when they were 4 yrs old - they were both nice young men, good students and athletes!

Yeah, I really do. It's very common and I know a couple of men with this name myself. But I won't be able to explain how to pronounce it.

Oh, that's nice to know, Northenstar! Latvians rule the world silently, lol! The full version of Kaspar is Kaspars.

Could be! Also Danes, (the oldest and continuous monarchy in the history of the world), and Greenlanders (is that even correct? Haha) - There was an exchange student during my son's senior yr that lived with a host family here from Greenland - his name was Lasse Nooregaard. Also a good student and tremendous athlete! My son became good friends with him, and we had him as a guest numerous times - he's been going to college in Denmark. It was interesting to see photos of his home, as most in Greenland live in one concentrated area close to the ocean (of course, as the rest is covered in ice) - he told of the wales they see, etc. He couldn't believe the tall forests here in MI, as they only have shrubs there..He was very well educated, and both his parents are teachers....
As I've said, all of your photos are so beautiful, and your area looks exactly like mine! So neat! :)
