Merry Christmas to you!

From our home to yours!
Update:  The snow just began falling at 8ish AM.  We finally are getting a White Christmas here in Mayberry!!!

Dick and I love Switzerland, so at his request, we would like to share a little bit of  'real' snow, and that country with you.
Switzerland 090 Stitch
This photo was taken atop the Schilthorn a few years ago.  This area is in the Bernese Alps, high above the small village of Murren.  You take a series of cable cars to reach the summit from the valley floor below, where you’ll find the Piz Gloria Restaurant.  A James Bond movie, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, was set here.  The restaurant revolves a full 360 degrees every 55 minutes.  And the food is pretty good...the views are outstanding!

For your continued viewing and listening pleasure, click here.  Most of the pictures are from the valleys above Interlaken, Switzerland.  For those of you who have been to Switzerland, you will recognize many of these places.  But more importantly, for all of you who love great music, Sarah Brightman and Andrea Bocelli are always worth listening to and enjoying.  You won’t be disappointed!  Go click up there…

We wish you a blessed Christmas, and a very happy and healthy New Year!

Zane has been to Switzerland. He's here with me and says we need to go and I said okay. There you have it.

The slide-show and the music are fantastic. Such beauty.

You and yours have a very merry Christmas honey. Big hugs from foggy California. :)
