This wasn’t my favorite photo of the year, but visiting this site in Hagnau, Germany was a highlight.  My ancestor Jacob Raber left this home in 1836 for America when he was 5 years old.  The exact generation and date I couldn’t confirm since my genealogy book is packed away in America somewhere!

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2013 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 20,000 times in 2013. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 7 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

Deep in Thought!

I decided to enlarge some photos from yesterday’s collage.
