I think these muffins may taste good ...
I'll try tomorrow;)

Coconut Crisp Muffins

16 normal-sized muffins

50 ml unsweetened coconut
120 g all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking powder
200 g sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
50 ml neutral oil
100 ml buttermilk/filmjolk/yogurt

Crispy topping:
75 g butter
100 g sugar
200 ml unsweetened coconut flakes

Mix all ingredients for the topping in a saucepan.
Let the butter melt, and mix well.
Mix coconut, flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl.
Add vanilla extract, oil, eggs and buttermilk/filmjolk/yogurt. Stir carefully.
Place muffin liners in a muffin tin, or use double liners.
Half-fill the liners - don't attempt to fit in more, because they will rise quite a bit!
Add about a teaspoon of topping to each.
Bake at 200° C for about 10 minutes.
Be careful not to burn the topping.

( 200 grader C = 392 grader F )

Inventory of tombstones in Sweden.

You can search for graves in Sweden and see photos of the headstone. There currently are 9780 graves and include about 19825 persons that are registered and there will be new every day. Unfortunately not in English but I think that you can search and find a great deal anyway.

It will be possible to search among the tombstones, which are photographed in the U.S. as well, that will come later.

You can see more here:
