Happy Holidays to you all! - 12/14/02 07:09 AM

I'd just like to wish you all the best Christmas ever and a wonderful New Year 2003. We are off to Europe next Friday to ski and visit family. Hope to post from over there a few times, the laptop is going along of course. Might even be able to post some on the road pics from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Liechtenstein. We are hoping to meet up with Krasni and Gianni while we are there. <br><br>Merry Christmas everyone!<br><br>http://homepage.mac.com/bliemel/<br><br>Click the link for our Christmas greeting.<br><br>

Money! Lotsa money in Liechtenstein. Postage stamps, artificial teeth. My first wife worked for IVOCLAR, they make premium artificial teth used in dentures (we were both in the dental lab business at the time). What else? They have a few castles, more money and then still more money. <br><br>Did I mention money?<br><br>

I don't speak Spanish, but I do understand that German. <br><br>Do people usually have Christmas trees in Costa Rica? Are they grown "in country" or do you have to import them from someplace like Canada? <br><br>

The skiing at Tahoe pic? I didn't know anyone wanted it. I have uploaded it, it is 1024 X 768, look for DSCN1393.jpg. <br><br>EDIT: Oh, didn't see your other post on that. Unfortunately, this is the biggest size I have of that. Pics from Europe should all be 1600 X 1200 unless I run out of space on my 3 CF cards.<br><br>http://homepage.mac.com/WebObjects/FileS...=US&lang=en<br><br><P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by mikeb_X on 12/14/02 01:06 PM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

chinese plastic trees.<br>Holy Cow.<br><br>All our trees are imported in from Oregon and Washington state. 500 thousand trees this year. All the trees are grown on tree farms. In general like wheat they are harvested.<br><br>In January local groups like Boy Scouts and other non-profit orgs solicit donations to pick up your tree for 5 bucks. They then take them down to a temporary location that grinds the trees into Mulch. The mulch is then delivered into locations around the island so that people can pick up FREE mulch for gardens or farms. Hence the trees are re-used and the non profit orgs gets some bucks.<br><br>I always pay the 5 bucks to the Boy Scouts - since I was a Eagle Scout once.<br><br>

I thought they used them for beach conservation? At least that's what I think they did in Florida.<br><br><br><br><br>[color:red]Don't make me open this on you!</font color=red><br>
