1. In response to many requests to actually have a look at JP's ill-famed Wehrmacht Cupboard, here it is:
It actually doesn't look so bad in this photo, but I assure you that it really isn't a very nice color. And despite what JP claims, stencilling a few flowers on it is NOT going to help.
2. I took this picture from just outside our back door, standing in the snow in my socks. I used my cellphone, so it's not very good at all, but I had to share it. The little black dots in the middle are the tail-end of a herd (pack?) of wild boars that walked through our yard. There were ten in all and they were quite big. It seems like the deep snow and long winter have brought them down quite low on the mountain in search of food.
