I visited this incredible mineral store and jewelry shop in Bamberg, Germany in 2010. It is the most amazing place to see if you are interested in purchasing a variety of stones, minerals, precious gems, rocks, and even custom jewelry. The owner was so kind and gracious and gave me a great tour of his amazing shop.

Here's more info on the place:

Goldschmeide-Meister-Werkstatt
Schmuckboutique Christine Stappenbacher
Hauptwachstraße 9
96047 Bamberg

You can imagine my surprise when driving down the street today we came upon this house with pigs in the front yard. Were they guard pigs or there to keep the grass cut or both? These pigs were not there yesterday and I wonder how long they will remain.

Seeing these two happy lady swine certainly brought back a fun memory from our time living in Bamberg, Germany.

Bob and went into a restaurant our first night there and on the menu it said, "we serve happy pigs". After we were able to regain our composure from laughing hysterically, our server told us that the German people believed that the meat of the animal can be adversely affected and the texture and flavor is bad if pigs are not raised and killed humanely. It makes sense to me now from what I've learned about commercial pig farms and the terrible conditions pigs are kept in. I'm happy to see these two lovely girls are enjoying themselves. I hope they stay that way.

Tonight on the History channel is an episode of @OzzyandJacksWorldDetour which finds them in Roswell, New Mexico learning about the 1947 alien crash. For a different take on the place, read Bob's story about our visit to Roswell in 2012.

This is a narrated video of pictures I took in 2009 while in Bastogne, Belgium to commemorate the 65th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge.
