Some Videos Worth Mentioning

I am trying to figure out the whole embedding video into wordpress, which is slightly more complex than it really should be, what with all the massive content that is out there.

Don’t get me wrong– I have enjoyed this trip, but it is exhausting to spend several weeks in a country where English is not the first or perhaps even second language — and to have a newborn baby crossing into toddler hood at the same time– it is a taxing experience.  Add to that the amount of travelling we have been doing while here — and the wierd weather– it is the warmest they have seen it in the north in years– literally nearly 50 degrees in January near the Danish border… and we brought the type of clothes […]
