Fort Wayne is going Greener!

Europeans tend to believe they 'invented' recycling, or at least they are way better at doing it. This is not the case! Fort Wayne has had a recycling program ever since we moved here, and before that. The two plastic boxes, containing recyclable glass, plastics 1 and 2, paper, cardboard, and metal, were being picked up on trash day every other week.

New Year Traditions

Heringssalat.jpgThe end of an old year and the beginning of a new year means plenty of opportunities to celebrate and carry on the traditions.

New Year's Eve calls for herring salad and home made pretzels, which I brought to our friends' party. Lighting off some fire crackers around midnight is also a must. Then watching 'Dinner for One' is a fun German tradition, which I can still enjoy, thanks to the internet.

We got home around 3:00 a.m., tired, happy, and well fed. 2011 just waited long enough for us to melt some lead and see what the future holds. My two objects are clearly recognizable as me, flying a kite.

I have no clue what that means for my new year, though.
Any suggestions? DrachenFliegen.jpg
