Winter Wonderland

This year we decided to go to the Christmas lighting festival in Leavenworth Washington.  It always looks so magical, the Bavarian themed village deep in the snow capped mountains on the northwest. Thanks to mother nature, my skills in finding an enjoyable room, and the christmas spirit that leavenworth has, it was a true winter wonderland experience.  There were feet of snow on the ground, snowing while we we’re there, and lights lit up all around town and even right outside our window at the inn they decorated the trees and light post.  This trip made our holidays even more enjoyable, great memory.

It's just something you ought to do while in a bravian village, esp in the winter , you eat a bratwurst.

Happy Earth Day

earthday symbolIn 1969, artist, writer and political cartoonist Ron Cobb created an international symbol for ecology. The symbol was formed by taking the letters “e” and “o”, taken from the words “environment” and “organism”, and putting them in superposition, thereby forming a shape reminiscent of the Greek letter Θ (Theta). He published it in the Los Angeles Free Press on October 25, 1969, and placed it in the public domain.
