We left Arnstein and headed toward Oberammergau on the morning of the 9th. We stopped at this little cafe on our way out of town called Bakery Peter Schiff. First all they gave us a glass of water!

When we arrived in Oberammergau we took a stroll around town. I took a few pictures. This town is like Leavenworth on steroids. On a serious note, it is home to the Passion Play.

Employee Retreat - The Suva - Monday, August 19, 2019Each year I try to figure out something fun to do with the employees besides working. Honestly, it really only happens once every two or three years. The work is easy and yet it's not. It's long hours sometimes and you have to remember all the different chocolates we offer, all the coffee and beverage drinks we make, a...
