Swedish is frustrating

I went to the cemetery again today. I really enjoy working there, but the computer work is driving me crazy. The inscriptions from oldest stones, there are about seven of them, are in Swedish. I am trying to translate it by using a combination of library books and the internet, but I just cannot translate several of the words. The main problem is the old stones are worn and exceptionally hard to read, so I am unsure of the spelling in many cases.

Around 1:30 the sky grew very dark, and almost a bit yellow. At first it was calm but then it started to thunder. I had visions of myself huddled in the basement as a tornado roared through town, but so far it hasn’t even rained. Just extremely dark clouds, lots of thunder and some lightning. Kind of like the Middle East. I will certainly pay attention to the situation in Israel and Lebanon. I feel sorry for Israel- they have such nasty neighbors.
And we complain about Mexico!

MSNBC’s overview of the happenings so far.

They always blame Israel.

That comment made absolutely no sense.

apparently you don't follow middle eastern politics.

No, you don't. Lebanon incited this war and Israel is protecting itself, and rightfully.

They aren't bombing all of Lebanon, only Hezbollah sites. Go watch the news. I am through talking to you.

This dude is Swedish and he speaks pretty good English: http://alltsomfinns.blogspot.com/

He doesn't blog in English but he comments on my sister and friend. Maybe you can upload a picture and ask him to read it for you.
