Happy birthday Isak Dinesen who has forever spawned the words, said with patrician Danish inflection "I had a farm in Africa."

My grandmother, the Danish one, knew Karen Blixen, and wish that I, as I child, had asked more questions. But, as a child, a more pressing question would be "Can we pick wild raspberries and make jam again please, Mormor?"
