    Gunilla? I have often wondered how your last name is pronounced...is it pronounced Bach and in the Composer's name? Or like back. Just curious. :o)

    1. Thank you Anni!

      My last name is pronounced "Beck" (like the famous guitarist Jeff Beck). The Swedish word bäck means brook (or creak or stream, but either way it's a small one).
