CHEESES mean a lot to me. I can't imagine a life without CHEESES.
I am currently reading Knut Nærum's "Krig! " ("War!" ), which explains how there came to be war between Norway and the Netherlands in 2005. CHEESES play a big role there. One of the first things which happened in the conflict between Norway and the Netherlands was the banning of Dutch CHEESES in Norway, and there were CHEESE burnings.
