Before writing about the absurd deals that were made between our erstwhile leader here in the United States and the German financial institution, Deutsche Bank, I thought it would be nice to share a few pictures from my little corner of the world.

First off, I thought I’d share a couple of pictures that will hopefully bring a smile. I buy fresh flowers from a vendor at our local farmer’s market and keep them on my kitchen table where I, and one or two of my favorite statues can enjoy them. In the ongoing debate about abortion and […]
