Blogspot has a remarkable number of ways of thwarting attempts to post a picture to a blogger profile. Over the past couple of days, I've been thwarted by, I believe, all of them. But, I perservered and now have a picture along with a profile. Those of you who checked out my profile before today (when it contained nothing), might find it now to be marginally less uninteresting. The information is deemed reliable, but is not guaranteed. The picture is of me standing in front of the Hofbrauhaus (sorry, I don't know how to do umlauts in a post) in Munich. It seemed appropriate somehow.
