Aside

Most of you, my visitors, of course know it, but from time to time I still want to do some shameless self-promotion   😀   and mention it: I’m keeping two blogs, this here with (mostly) long(er) articles, pictures, and videos, but also  “Pit’s Bilderbuch“, with (mostly) single pictures. You find that here: Pit’s Bilderbuch – Meine Urlaubs- und andere Bilder.

Querverweis

Die meisten von Euch, meine Besucher, werden es natürlich wissen, aber von Zeit zu Zeit möchte ich dennoch mich schamlos selber beweihräuchern   😀   und erwähnen, dass ich zwei Blogs betreibe, dieses hier mit (meistens)  längeren Artikeln, einschließlich Bildern und Videos, über mein Leben hier in den USA., und ein zweites Blog, “Pit’s Bilderbuch“, mit (meistens) Einzelbildern. Ihr findet das hier: Pit’s Bilderbuch – Meine Urlaubs- und andere Bilder.
