Dear Bob, here are some photos of my life here on the campus of Concordia Seminary. I love kids, working with the grounds crew, swimming, playing with my dog friends, and especially my own family people.
A northern Italy farm was the scene of a landslide which set loose an enormous boulder which obliterated the barn, just missed the house and left a deep groove in the ground all the way down. Slide show of the end result is here.
The Technical University of Munich has twin 4-story slides installed in the atrium of one of their campus buildings. Honestly? I can't say anything that would describe how cool this is better than the photograph.
This whole scientists/passengers stuck in the ice in Antarctica saga gets richer by the day. The Chinese and Russian ice cutters which got them out then got itself ice bound. Now the U.S. Coast Guard is stepping up to help break up ice off Antarctica that has ensnared a pair of ships. The Polar Star is currently in Australia and will take 7 days to reach the climate scientists.
"A Chinese icebreaker that helped rescue 52 passengers from a Russian ship stranded in Antarctic ice found itself stuck in heavy ice on Friday, further complicating the 9-day "roller-coaster" rescue operation."
No where in the Yahoo story does it mention the reason all those people were in Antarctica, studying global warming's ice melt.
From Google Translate, an interview with French General Vincent Desportes on how France feels after agreeing to partner with the US on Syria followed by Obama's stand down in order to go to Congress. Whoever at Google Translate did this made the message almost incomprehensible. But the sum of its parts is that the French leadership is not happy with President Obama.
