Hehe, no it refers to my long-standing admiration for Winnie-the-Pooh... 
There is a hum, which in English goes:

The more it snows
The more it goes
The more it goes
On Snowing

Especially suited for this time of the year, at least I'd like to think 
so. In an old Norwegian translation, the Tiddely-pom became 
Tiddeli-bom, which sounds more Norwegian, and that's what I usually 
write when I sign my e-mails. Sometimes, something short-circuits and 
the Norwegian part ends up in an English language e-mail. :-) 

I used to write a back-translation "Friendly Tiddely-pom" in my English 
e-mails too, but some brits told me it could be interpreted in many 
unintended ways, so I only do that in foras where I know people from 

Friendly Tiddely-pom,
