Rum Balls and a Rice U Symposium on 4/8/11

Thanks to Jerry we all enjoyed chocolate rum balls in one of our lighter moments. This one got away.

Rolling Rum Balls: I’ve got to start sorting and deleting and posting pictures (of which I have thousands), so I thought it very fitting to share this image from Salzburg first. Right after we got off the bus to start our walking tour in Salzburg, I shot this picture. I thought you would enjoy!  This may be more a front of the bus “thing”, so we’ll see.
As to the more serious images, I need to find quite a few hours to work on these. Sadly, I have no photos for our time in Sachsenhausen or Ravensbruck (remember, that is the day I left my camera charging. . . )

As soon as I do find time to post the refined collection I do have (after sorting and deleting), I’ll let you know where they are posted. I know between us we have a really amazing photo gallery. Do you want to post collectively to the blog or do you have other ideas? Let’s figure this out. I know many people are anxious to see the pics we took along our journey.

Rice U Symposium: I’m taking the day off today (Friday) then I thought I was going to attend the Rice U Symposium that we have mentioned. However, it is not today, but Friday, 1/8/11. Don’t know how I got that so wrong!  Maybe because I can’t go on the 8th as I’ll be on my way to Purdue! However, I hope some of you are able to be there, as the speakers will be discussing some of the ideas we talked and thought about on our trip. Here is the link again for the Rice University Humanities Research Center’s Symposium, “Private Places, Public Power”:   http://german.rice.edu/Content.aspx?id=120
