And so we say Goodbye to 2006. All in all, for me a great year!
But where did those extra pounds come from? I hope your year was
equally productive and that 2007 brings you all you need to be happy and
safe! Here's a list of 50 things we didn't know about our world just
one year ago!
Thursday December 28, 2006
Well the year is winding down. '06 has been quite a year for me with
the highlight being the arrival of a young man who will soon become my
adopted son! I have so many things to be thankful for!! A Dad
who's in good health and going to be 92, a sister and now a son. If

Well it was quite a day! Great weather for flying! Berlin to
Amsterdam was still dark, changed flights so went direct AMS to MSP
(Amsterdam to Minneapolis) on a new Northwest Airbus with the fancy lay
down seats. Not impressed with seats (hard cushions-no padding!)
but plane is nice! Then cuase we had 150 MPH headwinds, had to make
a RUN for the MSP to Grand Forks flight, but we made it, had a good nights
sleep and we're back at the grindstone today! We talked through the
week about RAEUCHERMANN...those incense burning, people looking
little German statues. Well here's a website with over 500 of
them...one for every possible profession.
Take me to the SMOKERS!
Wednesday December 13, 2006

(train station) and then in the evening to a Christmas Market...Pics
coming. Then a great Italian Dinner and a long goodbye.
Wednesday December 6, 2006
Well it all turned out good but lots of changes. We got to
Minneapolis and during the wait for the flight to Newark, the schedule got
later and later. Finally we figured out that there was no way I
would get there to catch the Continental flight to Amsterdam. Soooo
I got rebooked on the 3:30 flight from MSP to AMS and got to ride in one
of the new Airbus planes that Nwest has. It was great but no sleep
so very tired. Arrive at 11:30am Berlin time (4:30am Minnesota time)
Off to Henry's apartment. Met the cast/stars of the movie Henry is
working on. Thai food. Lots of Conversation!

Monday December 4, 2006 We're OFF to Germany
As we talked about last week, there's a place in Downtown Berlin where
there are two identical (on the outside anyway) Churches. During
Advent the entire space between them is filled with a gigantic Christmas
Market! Here's some of the finest pictures of the event that I've
found on the net! I spent time here in 2003 and am looking to spend
at least a day there in the upcoming week.

My first flight to Europe was courtesy of TWA. I went with the Mayor
Pro tem of Las Vegas, along with several councilmen and a group of media
folk. It was an awesome trip, Las Vegas-Phoenix-New York-Paris, Then
a Lufthansa flight to Frankfurt. Then a train trip to Kassel
Germany. Then a Bus back to Frankfurt and a flight from
Frankfurt-New York-Phoenix-Las Vegas. I WAS HOOKED.
Today we remember that airline TWA as it flew it's LAST flight in 2001
