// cRYING ""Maureen is my home" When Ringo had to leave behind his bride of only eleven days, while he flew with the Beatles to the Bahamas for location shooting on their new film, he found himself deeply missing Maureen: "We had been told to travel light. Leave wives and girlfriends at home. We let ourselves be talked into it, and as a result I spent two of the loneliest weeks of my life in the lush paradise of the Bahamas. Well, when we discussed going on to Austria with a brief stop-over in London, I told Walter Shenson, our producer, I was ready for a fight. ‘I’m not going alone.’ So he said, and it sounded almost too simple to be true, ‘By all means, take Maureen along.’ As a result Cynthia Lennon came along too, and so did George’s Pattie. Jane Asher, Paul’s girlfriend was busy and had to stay behind. But the other three girls took off happily to keep us company. You didn’t have to tell Maureen twice. I remember that when we got to Obertauern in the Austrian Alps, and unpacked in our ...

The story behind "Silent Night" Why was "Silent Night" written? Josef Mohr, author / Franz Gruber, composer "And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night" -- Luke 2:8 The reason "Silent Night" was created: How the world's most famous Christmas carol came to be written and set to music While we were serving as missionaries in Europe we visited a small little church in Austria. That church was the birthplace of "Silent Night." Here's the story how this most famous of Christmas carols came to be written: In 1818, a roving band of actors was performing in towns throughout the Austrian Alps. On December 23 they arrived at Oberndorf, a village near Salzburg where they were to re-enact the story of Christ's birth in the small Church of St. Nicholas. Unfortunately, the St. Nicholas' church organ wasn't working and would not be repaired before Christmas. (Note: some versions of the story point to mice as the problem; others say rust was the culprit) Because the ...
A Christmas story, from the Darkside -- The year was 1818, it was Christmas Eve in a snow covered village in the Austrian Alps. The tradition of the people there was to gather at the Church of St. Nicholas to hear Christmas music played on a pump-pedal organ, only that night there was no music because a mouse had eaten a hole in the pedal's material. In the silence the people gathered anyways. Pastor Josef Mohr and guitarist Franz Xaver Gruber walked in, calmed the mumbling crowd and played an unheard song titled, Silent Night, that had been composed a few hours earlier. Since then it has been sang in over 300 languages around the world. everybody! ~ Darkside Johnny

Dragovic: Inter is a dream Basel defender Aleksandar Dragovic has admitted that it is 'a dream' to play for Inter, following rumours of a possible move. Reports in the Italian Press recently have claimed that the Austria international is being pursued by the Nerazzurri this summer. And the 22-year-old has conceded that a move to San Siro would be amazing. Speaking to Laola 1 during his summer holiday in the Austrian Alps, Dragovic claimed: “I have not bought a book to learn Italian! “But my agent told me two-three weeks ago that there was interest from Inter. “They are a great team with a great history. “It is the dream of every player to go to Milan, and I'm no different. “But at this moment I am only thinking about being in shape for the upcoming season and resuming my training. “All the other things my club will take care of. “Although, I must admit, I would be happy if a move went through.” Walter Mazzarri's men are said to be close to agreeing a €6.5m deal for the centre-back.

WARNER AND THEISEN GOTZIS (AUT, May 25): Canadians are overnight leaders at 39th Hypomeeting in Austrian Alps (IAAF CE Challenge). Damian Warner, fifth at the London 2012 Olympic Games, finished the first day with 4340 points and an advantage 96 points over German surprise Kai Kazmirek, who was second with 4244 points. USA’s 2012 IAAF World Junior Championships gold medallist Gunnar Nixon was third after five events with 4239 points. Brianne Theisen’s heptathlon lead is much more slender than her compatriot and she leads by just five points from The Netherlands’ 2010 World junior champion Dafne Schippers on cold and rainy day where the temperature was just 9 degrees Celsius and which was more like one encountered in the late autumn rather than at the end of May (3816 to 3811).

"The Kammersee Affair", although a work of fiction, is partially based on reality. Lake Toplitz (German: Toplitzsee) is a lake situated in a dense mountain forest high up in the Austrian Alps, 98 km (61 mi) from Salzburg in western Austria. It is surrounded by cliffs and forests in the Salzkammergut lake district, within the Totes Gebirge (dead mountains). The Toplitzsee water contains no oxygen below a depth of 20m. Fish can survive only in the top 18m, as the water below 20m is salty, although bacteria and worms have been found below 20m that can live without oxygen. During 1943-44, the shore of Lake Toplitz served as a Nazi naval testing station. Using copper diaphragms, scientists experimented with different explosives, detonating up to 4,000 kg charges at various depths. They also fired torpedoes from a launching pad in the lake into the Tote Mountains, producing vast holes in the canyon walls. Millions of counterfeit pound sterling notes (£100+ million) were dumped in the lake after Operation Bernh ...

Thiells United Methodist Church Pastor Reverend Jessica Campbell, in her pastoral letter this week, told a special story about a church in the Austrian Alps.
THE AMAZING ORIGINS OF THE MOST BEAUTIFUL CHRISTMAS SONG: from RETURN TO ORDER (12/21/12) Far beyond the ocean, in a valley in the Austrian Alps, lies the age-old village of Oberndorf, looking now much as it did one, two, or three hundred years ago. In the center of the village, near a swift-flowing stream, stands a whitewashed church with a tall red-topped steeple. The low houses, their slanting roofs weighted down with stones, are scattered about the church like so many baby chicks around a red-combed white hen; and the church bell calls to them from the steeple in a quick, excited hen-like tone. In the days of our story only peasants and a few artisans lived in Oberndorf, with an occasional trader coming in “from outside.” There were but two educated people in the village: Father Joseph Mohr, the twenty-six-year-old parish priest, and Franz Xaver Gruber, the organist and schoolteacher. Both being young and “from outside,” they soon became fast friends, and every Sunday they met to make music. A ...

Hands up any ladies who think the bangle is a stupid design ? If you don't want the bangle to keep sliding over your hand and falling off, you have to buy them in a size smaller than your hand, which means contorting your poor fingers into all sorts of awkward positions just to get the *** things on. Whenever you rest your wrist on the desk to type/write etc. the bottom of it keeps pushing or pinching into the soft skin. Raise your hand and there's an annoying clacking or jingling sound of bangles colliding, making you sound like some hapless cow lost in the Austrian Alps in spite of the giant bell around her neck. Drop your hand to hang at your side and that heavy wooden bangle races downwards to collide painfully with your wrist bone. In hot weather it wedges itself around your swollen lower arm where it gets sticky and itchy. In winter you keep getting this unpleasant cold shock from that metal cuff that looked so stunning on display, or you receive involuntary arm scarification of the burnt variety ...

The Fabulous Fibonacci Numbers In today's excerpt - in Europe, cumbersome Roman numerals were used until about 1202 AD, when a mathematician trained in north Africa named Leonardo Pisano, a man known as Fibonacci, introduced the Hindu-Arabic numerals (he called them "Indian figures") we still use today. He also brought other dramatic changes in western Europe's use and understanding of mathematics including the amazing sequence of numbers we now know as Fibonacci numbers: "In a remote section of the Austrian Alps, there is a long-abandoned salt mine entrance with a cornerstone bearing the inscription 'anno 1180.' It refers to the year that the mine was established. Clearly there is something wrong with this designation. Scholars have determined that the first published use of the Hindu numerals (our common numerals) in the Western world was in 1202. It was in this year that Leonardo of Pisa (Leonardo Pisano), more commonly known as Fibonacci (pronounced: fee-boh-NACH-ee), published his seminal work Li ...

The last two days have been spectacular. We drove through the Austrian Alps into the Swiss Alps. The most beautiful scenery I've ever seen. We went on a 2 1/2 hr horse and carrage ride through the Alps countryside to close to a glacier. We took a scenic train for 6 hrs. Today across the Alps to Zermatt. You can se the Matterhorn from here, but the clouds covered about half. Hopefully tomorrow we'll have a better view. Beautiful Alpine village and great views.
Mike Bucc and I both agree.Salzburg Austria is Europe's most charming town. Barque architecture and Mozart are everywhere. Sunny weather allways helps in the Austrian Alps. WE have a minor alpine dilemma; Should we do the Sound of Music Tour (a la Julie Andrews) or visit Hitler's Eagle's Nest at 8,000 ft? Old Adolf might win.this time.

Beautiful family, beautiful house on a beautiful lake in the beautiful Austrian Alps.they had an idyllic life that most could only dream of. Until the bad guys came along. Then Captain had to make an incredibly difficult decision: Stay in his beloved homeland, and work for the evil Nazis who were marching thru Europe taking over countries, and enslaving the people, or leave everything and take his family elsewhere. So after their last concert (remember Edelveiss?), they slipped out of the country and eventually found refuge in the U.S.A., in Vermont. In a way, I think some Americans may feel like the Von Trapp family. We feel like the bad guys are coming. But this time - there's no where to go.
