Thanks a millennium
Good article on Stieg Larsson’s work
[“Millennium men,” December 2010], and I
hope it will help more readers get acquainted
with his writings.
The translation work [by Steven T. Mur-ray] fooled me, as it appeared to be a Swedish-based effort, replete with the Queen’s English
(“sceptical,” “towards,” “astonishing,” etc.), and
not much colloquial American [English]. Also,
omitting to translate simple words, such as
tun-nelbana, Fru, Froken, makes one feel like [one
is] entering an IKEA store and trying to make
sense of the items’ names.
Back to Larsson’s opus: superb reading,
great movies and the sad realization that the
world lost a gifted storyteller.
Fighting Cystic Fibrosis
Last month you featured an article about
my foundation [“Tackling cystic fibrosis, one
day at a time,” December 2010]. In the first
two days that The Connection came out online
www.costcoconnection.com), we received a
generous donation, orders for the Portraits of
Cystic Fibrosis calendar (
org) and were connected with many CF [cys-tic fibrosis] families across the country.
Thanks to the generous spirit of all the
Costco members helping to support us, we’re
hoping that this turns out to be one of our biggest fundraisers ever!

Recipe for successful holidays
It was the first time in 10 years that my
immediate family was all together, so besides
wanting to fix something special, I wanted to
cook as much ahead of time [as possible]. The
“Favorite recipes for the holidays” [November
2010] was one my husband handed me and
said I should look over. Reading about the
Make Ahead Mashed Potatoes was perfect for
what I needed.
The big winner, though, was the Apple
Toffee French Toast [“Quality to the core,”
November 2010]. I did a trial run and it was a
big hit. One batch won’t be enough. Thanks
for lightening my load on what to fix, as you
gave us some winners!
