In an earlier post (The Salzach River at Salzburg) I lamented that I had not taken any photos of the love locks on the railings of the pedestrian bridge across the River Salzach. Well, maybe not – but I found something among the photos… Here’s the river – new town on the north side to the left, old town on the south side to the right. But peer closely and there is the ‘love locks’ […]

Street Singer

His voice is deep, quite quiet, melancholy, a nice rounded sound. I am not sure what songs he sings – it’s muffled because he sings with his head down, and my hearing is not that acute. Maybe something from Leonard Cohen or Bob Dylan. He’s not young, very tanned face. Keeps his clothes neat. Smiled when I said I enjoyed listening to him when I pass.

Tamara and I have a self-hosted WordPress site where we sell greeting cards. The e-commerce on the site is handled by a plugin named WooCommerce, that you may have heard of.  Recently I had an issue with an additional plugin used to make bundles of products. It is built on top of WooCommerce and it is an official WooCommerce plugin but it is not built by the WooCommerce team themselves. It is built by a third […]
