We did the pre stay in Amsterdam and then 7 days on the Rhine! I was great, I highly recommend it!
Here's an "old" photo, from all of five years ago. Alice Cooper opened for Iron Maiden during the summer of 2012. Here in the midwest, summer thunderstorms can pop up at any time, and that's what happened fifteen minutes before Alice was scheduled to go on. The show was delayed an hour and Alice had to cut a couple of songs from his set. Regardless, it was otherwise a great evening with two great acts.
The Black Widower
Both Maiden and Alice Cooper put on amazing shows! Saw Alice a year and a half ago for the 3rd time, he opened for Motley Crue.

Auerbachs Keller [Auerbach's Cellar] in Leipzig, Germany. It was in this wine cellar that young Wolfgang Goethe spent much time as a student at Leipzig University. He immortalized it in his play, Faust.

The 2017 Red Bull air race season opened today in Abu Dhabi. I wasn't there, but I hope to attend their return to the Indianapolis Motor Speedway on October 14-15, 2017. Here's a shot from 2016, with Francois Le Vot passing in front of the J.W. Marriott hotel in downtown Indianapolis. Believe it or not, the hotel is less than four miles from the Speedway.

Did you know that oxen are made, not born? Neither did I, but at last summer's Indiana State Fair I learned that the cows must first learn the trade as "working steers." If they pass the final exams, they become full-fledged oxen.
And the worst job in ox school is held by the girl in the back with the shovel, waiting to catch anything that the steers may drop.

There's been a bit of progress on the farm, as a new-fangled steam traction engine has replaced the oxen. It still needs a shovel, but for input, not output.
Enjoy the Fair

Everyone can get the blues. Ana Popovic gets them better than most. She really made that Strat talk at the 2013 Cincy Blues Fest.

A pack of vintage Formula 5000 cars fight for position on the IMS road course in 2016. I love seeing stuff like this at vintage races.

I won't be able to look at this scene the same way again.
