Cafe Ruffini 2

A tradition continues.  Ruffini is owned and run by a collective of folks, and the yellow plants on the top patio are not fall foliage, like out front.  They're happily blooming tree datura flowers, even in sub freezing temperatures.

Cafe Ruffini

Here is lovely collection of cakes, in the window of Cafe Ruffini, which has not changed one bit in the 30 some years  I've been coming here.


Over night Munich has become a winter wonderland.  
Here's Poseidon covered in snow, shot from the window of a moving tram.

Melange Klassik for breakfast

Here's my recent breakfast at Cafe Melange in Munich / Gern.  4 different cheeses, cold cuts, jam, breads, butter, honey and a perfect soft boiled egg.  Comes with Latte Macchiato, a super frothy affair, which comes Vienna style with a glass of water and a cookie.  =)

Here's my dinner at Gut Nederling.  Bavarian pork roast with dumplings and a bacon studded coleslaw.

Peace Angel

I'm in Munich, enjoying the fall colors and my visits.  
This is a landmark called Friedensengel, overlooking the  river Isar.

Old Angel

Not in Topanga, but rather Europe.  It's where I'm heading to be a Halloween angel.  Expect irregular updates.

Party On!

"Hat John" and barefoot girlfriend are kissing among the smokers & drinkers in front of Hillbillyhip.  It's unusual Tuesday, so wild shenanigans are bound to follow soon.

Unusual Tuesdays

Up to the usual shenanigans at Hillbillyhip.  Here is Drummer, yet again, sporting his extra large size bone.

Nice clean set of wheels after carwash day at Children's Corner Preschool.  At 100* in the shade there was little else to do, is what the director told me.

Topanga Days

Here is the original Topanga Days poster, from way back when, hanging over the fireplace at the community house.  Hippies rule!
