I loved reading David's book. Casey is a very likable young busker and it was fun to "be with him" as he travelled and searched several beautiful
cities in Europe. I liked the way he "tuned in" to a new friend -with or
without a common language, checking his words when perhaps "thank you" was not as good a communication as "cool!" The book is sometimes a bit of a page turner! I was worried a few times when Casey was in a difficult and/or dangerous situation and was relieved when he was on to the next adventure. Great read!!!

Portland, Oregon has been in the headlines again over the last few days, and this trend will continue. The reasons for the headlines will vary depending on who you ask. If you ask the far right they will say something about Antifa terrorists having violent confrontations with the police because they hate law and order. The mainstream media’s headlines will also tend to lead with the so

Es war einmal vor langer Zeit, als im Kelsterbacher Wald noch Vögel landeten die nicht aus Metal waren und die statt Menschen und Fracht im Bauch Lieder im Herzen trugen. Damals trug es sich zu, dass der Frankfurter Flughafen mal wieder erweitert werden sollte. Dass vor Jahrzehnten versprochen worden war, er würde niemals außerhalb seiner bestehenden Grenzen wachsen, war so selbstverständlich vergessen worden, wie immer wieder vergessen wird, dass man Geld nicht essen kann. Natürlich formte sich ...more
