I'm looking forward to having more than window boxes next year!
 
Summer garden planning is underway!

Recent events in memory  of The Great Escape's 70th Anniversary and the men who were murdered, concluded with a ceremony at the Citadel in Poznan. It was very brief, very moving, and an honor to be in attendance.

April is Autism Awareness month. When I saw this car (part of a tour in Berlin), it made me think of my friends who know autism too well and are so articulate in educating the rest of us.

I made Empty Tombs on Saturday with some Polish kids at an American ministry coffee shop. They don't sell canned crescent rolls here, so we had to make our own dough, and as you might expect, it was much better!

I think this may be the first time I've made empty tombs, and my children are all in their twenties now.   Sorry, girls!  You know how an idea can get tucked away in the back of your mind and get l...

As much as Yana and I have talked about holidays, I was surprised to hear about the New Year's tree. :-)

Another great interview from our friend, Maciek, for WTK; this time with +Edward Britton. The title says, "American reveals the secrets of the base F-16 Krzesiny." Sounds like an exposé. ;-)

Amerykanin Edward Britton w Poznaniu jest już od 5 lat. Przyjechał tu, by w Krzesinach szkolić pilotów F-16. Oprowadza nas po lotnisku i zdradza jego tajemnice!

I think I can laugh at myself; I know I'll have to see this. 
 
I suppose it was only a matter of time until they made a movie about food blogging, and then quickly after announcing it, started making fun of it. I know I'll be curious to watch it, even if it does just feature beautiful people!
First-time filmmaker Chris Wiegand recently debuted the trailer of his documentary ‘American Blogger,” and was met with ridicule. (Rightly so.)

Challenged by fellow expat blogger,  +Amanda van Mulligen, I've prepared a reverse bucket list. Rather than thinking about what I still need to do, I've made a list of experiences since I moved to Poland three years ago. It was quite an eye opener for me. What would you put on a reverse bucket list?
