Besigheim, River Enz and Bridge in front of the Historic Old Town with Town Hall
Baden-Wuerttemberg

Besigheim in Baden-Wuerttemberg, Swabia (South-West of Germany). Besigheim, eine historische Kleinstadt und Erholungsort zwischen Neckar und Enz. Altstadt mit Stadtmauer und Rathaus. Im Vordergrund die Enz mit Wehr. Dahinter die Vorstadt, Westliche Stadtmauer und Rathaus.

Anscheinend hat auch Barack Obama, Präsident der Vereinigten Staaten von Amerika, seine Wurzeln in Besigheim. Ein Vorfahre auf seiner Mutter’s Seite, Johann Conrad Wölfle, wurde im Jahre 1729 in Besigheim geboren.

Barack Obama, the US President, has some distant roots in Besigheim: Apparently one of his ancestors on his mother’s side, Johann Conrad Wölfle, was born here in 1729.

More About Germany

Germany? Before the beginning there was Ginnungagap, an empty space of nothingness, filled with pure creative power. (Sort of like the inside of my head.)And it ends with Ragnarok, the twilight of the Gods. In between is much fighting, betrayal and romance. Just as a good Godly story should be.Heroes have their own graveyard called Valhalla. Unfortunately we cannot show you a panorama of it at this time, nor of the lovely Valkyries who are its escort service.Hail Odin, wandering God wielding wisdom and wand! Hail Freya, hail Tyr, hail Thor!Odin made the many lakes and the fish in them. In his traverses across the lands he caused there to be the Mulheim Bridge in Cologne, as did he make the Mercury fountain, Mercury being of his nature.But it is to the mighty Thor that the Hammering Man gives service.Between the time of the Nordic old ones and that of modern Frankfort there may have been a T.Rex or two on the scene. At least some mastodons for sure came through for lunch, then fell into tar pits to become fossils for us to find.And there we must leave you, O my most pure and holy children.Text by Steve Smith.
