My name is Oscar Cronquist and I live in the south of Sweden. I created this website and I write articles about Microsoft Excel. I created the Excel formulas, attached workbooks, tutorials, and some of the videos on this website unless otherwise stated. Most website visitors come from the United States, UK, Australia, Canada, and India.

We have three kids. Sweden is a small country with 10 million inhabitants in Scandinavia located in northern Europe. Sweden is known for IKEA, Spotify, Skype, Volvo, Ericsson, SKF and Minecraft.

We live in a house near the ocean and the weather is about the same as in the United Kingdom. Rainy and foggy in the winter and beautiful in the summer. This is because the gulf stream brings warm water from the Gulf of Mexico into the Atlantic Ocean. The climate here would be like Siberia in Russia or northern Canada if the Gulf stream was taken away.

nose - näsa

Both English and the Swedish language originate from the proto-Germanic language spoken in north Germany and Scandinavia around 2000 years ago.
