    Welcome to USMB, Snowflake. I have visited beautiful Germany twice. I visited two Pfaff sewing machine factories, one in Karlsruhe, and one in Kaiserslautern. I was saddened to hear the company was sold a few years back, first to another EU members, and later to a country someplace else, not sure where, but not in the EU, I don't think. Anyway, the place I loved the best was in Bavarian mountains, Neuschwanstein Castle, I think, but also the towns on the way there--one had a shop of handmade cuckoo clocks of every beautiful wood and pretty paints, nutcrackers, and colorful handmade-looking children's interest toys, all things cheerful and pretty. And the architecture of all the towns. Particularly beautiful was the trip on a train through part of the Black forest and a boat trip on the Rhine that ended at a Biergarden where they sang a lot of Polka Songs and we laughed all night. They also sent us on a trip to the Netherlands, where we had a few hours viewing the tulip gardens so close and accessible to the German border by tour bus. Another day, we rode by bus to another German neighbor, Austria, where we visited a famous musician's boyhood home. Everything in Germany was top drawer, ancient Castles and gardens, and cities with cobblestone streets. Both visits may have been before the wall fell in what was then known as "West Germany". How beautiful it was, all of it.

    I welcome you with all my heart.
