First, we missed to announce publicly that Carlos celebrated his birthday this past week. We did send him a nice present, or so we hope, but the readers of this blog might want to add a wish or two for him, so there you go. Then, we also missed our own birthday - the 2-year-anniversary of this blog. If you don't read German - the first entry was done by my brother Hajo who set the blog up for us (I had so no clue how to do this!). He was wondering what this was all good for, blogging being a relatively new thing for him and for us. Thanks again, Hajo! And thanks to our readers for perusing this blog - without readers, we wouldn't write. We'll try to be better about posting daily, promised.
