  1. Terrific News Dr Vino!


  2. Well at least there is still some sanity somewhere in the world!


  3. Please be aware that this is only a temporary stop for the 5 weeks of coalition talks. We still have the final battle on our hands, and we will need your help.

    Here is a brand new petition – directly addressing the politicians in Rheinland-Pfalz who will be making the tough decision whether to continue. Please sign and spread:

    (An English translation of the main text will appear in a day or two.)


  4. Perhaps a tunnel???
    I am a fan of riesling wine and it is terrific news that there is a halt to reassess. Still, it is difficult to stand in the way of “progress.” How about a tunnel? It would reduce the impact that a bridge would cause, and it will allow traffic to move along just as well. Just a thought…
