Masskrugstemmen (or Steinholding)

Masskrugstemmen (or Steinholding)

When I first heard of Masskrugstemmen I couldn't believe my eyes. Not only could I not pronounce it, I couldn't believe my luck in finding it. Such a complicated name!  But then I registered that this was a German word; tough-to-say is a no-brainer in Germany and...

The Perfect Storm

The Perfect Storm

Why The Perfect Storm? Because I just saw the movie - again. It's our birthday. After 15 years in town we still feel like kids. We readily admit that we don’t have this thing completely figured out. But we are only 15, still adolescents, barely with whiskers. You...
