Am going to try that 'tree healing touch' Dave, will be really interested in seeing what results.

And to answer your other posts, love Rotkohl, especially with apple or orange together with the bacon and onions, but have not tried your recipe, with the apple cider vinegar, honey and sugar so must do that this winter.

And yes the name Francine McKenna is a bit of a conundrum isn�t it. Believe me if you saw the entire name it would be even more confusing because it mixes so many nationalities, this is a shortened version.

Have lived in Germany longer than anywhere else in my life, although it was not planned that way. Had a school place for my youngest son, several job offers, with �Green Card�, and lots of friends in the Washington DC area, way back in 1999, but it was impossible for me to leave the country. So it was one of those choices that we all have to make.

Either sulk for the Olympics or make it work. Over the years have studied its history, learnt the language and grown to love the country, the traditions and met some lovely people.

Have lived in many places, as did the families of both my parents, and my mother and father themselves. Our roots are Scottish, but the world has been our playground as they say.

Both Grandfathers won many medals fighting against Germany in two wars, and my father was awarded the Legion d�honneur amongst other things by the French because, as a very young man indeed, he fought for the Free French in WWII. So you could say I grew up in surroundings that were not particularly �pro-Germany�.

Became close to my late mother-in-law in the months before she suddenly died and one day she sent me a package of bits of paper with family recipes, with all my favourites, including the Christmas Cookies we used to devour as if we had not eaten for months. Many of the traditional recipes I feature are those she gave me.

Sounds good to me. I love witchiness and I love trees.

Dave, when you are rolling the stulle, is it from end to end or side to side (the long side)?

Wow now doesn�t that sound fun. What a Christmas treat.

How super that there are so many traditions around the Stulle as well, somehow it is things like that that make a Christmas��..well make anything really.

And yes that moon trip sounds more exciting by the minute, now am sure I have a cloak somewhere, and just know that a cocktail would not be hard to find, then I�m ready for GO.

My good friend Dieter and I are going to Germany sometime soon. We just recently talked about going but we are short of funds so we will have to wait. I am going to the Hoffbrau armed with my vast array of German beer drinking songs, two strong wrists to hold the large mugs of beer, and my good friend Dieter who will steady me if I waver. Gee I sure hope someone is holding him up???? He speaks excellent German and knows the countryside extremely well. He said to me, Dave, "We have got to go see Dachau." I said," Oh yeh right, and miss the Spaten Dunkel at the Hoffbrau, no way!! LOL Hey Francine and Phyllis, you gals need to go with us!! dave

Oh Phyllis, I would even hope it is a Stulle, at least that sounds exciting and good enough to eat, rather than 'stulle', don't really want to go the wrong way and end up in the centre of the earth.

Seriously, If I can be so for even a moment LOL You roll the stulle from two adjoining corners to the other two so that it is uniform. But now that you mentioned it one could roll it up the other way except for the fact that the center would be about two feet thick and the ends would taper off into nothing. I don't think that it would bake to well that way Phyllis, ??? LOL dave
