There are Places I Remember:

Fredericksburg, TX

You’ve heard of the PA Dutch, but how about the Texas Germans?  The town of Fredericksburg in the Texas Hill County is a German haven with antique shops, bierhalls, bakery, and saloons.  It’s the peach capitol of Texas and the start of the Texas wine trail.


Saying of the Week

May the holes in your nets be no larger than the fish in it.


Word of the Day


Delft is a city in Holland, but also named for tin glazed earthenware.  The 20th century ceramics in blue and white, which are also called Delft,  were sold as souveniers for those making  trips to Holland and feature the typical windmills and tulips.  That’s not really the more valuable 18th century earthenware that’s highly collectible.
