There are Places I Remember:

Oberammergau, Germany

This small town in the Bavarian Mountains holds a special town play ever 10 years called The Passion Play.  It’s based on the life of Christ and started in 1634 when the town prayed that if God would spare the town from the Bubonic Plague (running rampant in Europe), they would hold a passion play.  This play lasts all summer long (May-October) and includes more than 2,000 town people.  Over ½ million visitors see  it each year!


Saying of the Week

It’s a good deed to forget a bad joke.

Brenden Behan, Irish Poet

Word of the Day

 Curvilinear:  in a curved line or style, opposite of geometric or linear.
