Lichtenberg monument in Stade
where he worked as King George's surveyor
Blogging? I shall do it slowly. I know a little bit about web sites including HTML and CMS but have no experience in blogging.

In my coming blogs I would like to park all stuff not fitting directly into my other activities. There will always be some sort of justification or rather explanation or even an excuse followed by my odd thoughts, funny observations, and strange pictures. I shall model my blogs to the famous Sudelb├╝cher (blotters) that my favourite author and admired co-physicist Georg Christoph Lichtenberg used to scribble in at the end of the 18th century.

Why do I blog in English? The first reason is that I like my international friends and particularly those from Freiburg's sister city Madison, WI, to share my odd thoughts, funny observations and strange pictures. The second reason is that I want to keep up my composing skills in English, the language I have been working in for more than 32 years.

Please enjoy, Red Baron, aka Manfred
