Child Labor in Switzerland

Yes it all looks innocent but if you study those sad faces you might
understand that they've been working rolling out little pastries on
those white boards for over 12 hours. It's a shame.

Motor Homes Are Eco Friendly

 I copied this from the UK site.  I'm thinking that now I don't have to feel guilty driving the big thing around like a turtle with his home on his back.

"Travelling 600 miles by motorhome only produces a fraction of carbon emission compared to traveling by plane (I read somewhere it's only 1/6th. of what's attributed to one person on a European flight)
Living in a motorhome uses only a fraction of the water and electricity compared to home/apartment/hotel.
If studied, living/travelling in a mh could possibly turn out to be more overall eco friendly than just staying at home."

The thoughts that hide in waiting in the day

I have to post this from my niece Sherrie Vigil, she posted it as a status update on Facebook and I think it's too beautiful to be lost.

"They tell you when you are little that there are no monsters under the bed and darkness holds nothing scarier than the absence of light. Though this is true when I’m lying in bed at night a different kind of monster rears it ugly head. The thoughts that hide in waiting in the day, plague me in the dark. I wish for the moment that the knight in shining armor, Sleep, will rescue me from the fortress of conscious thought into the warm cradle of dreamland where I can finally be at peace"

Kid, Grandkids and a Turkey

Just some shots from our four days at Erin's house.

The Latest

We had a nice visit with Erin and her family in Switzerland.  She cooked a great turkey for a late Thanksgiving dinner with a little help from Luisa and me.  And we did our Christmas bit together.  Pictures to fallow.
