To all my biker friends:

You may have heard that my wife and I don't ride anymore, but we are missing the camaraderie and the social life associated with bike riding. We miss breakfast, lunch, dinner and weekend rides with friends. Over the last couple of weeks we talked with some former biker friends about the idea to create a “Former Biker Social Club” where we continue to have our social events, just without the ride. I know “It's the journey not the destination”, but we always enjoyed the socializing at the destination as much as the ride.

Here is our suggestion: Lets meet once or twice a month for breakfast, lunch or dinner and talk about the time when we had been riding. Let us know if you want to be informed about upcoming meetings. 

This link will forward you to the contact page were you can give us your contact information. Use “FBSC” as subject.

I finally upgraded to Joomla! 3.4 because the support for my 2.5 version ended by the end of last year.
Today (2021-08-27) I upgraded the database to MySQL 5.7.

Meinen Nachforschungen zufolge wurde der Name "Bubestinger" zum erstenmal bei der Geburt von "Antonius de Padua Bubestinger" am 10. Juni 1856 erstmals Urkundlich erwaehnt. Sein Vater "Kaspar Bubestinger" wurde noch als "Pobesdiner" am 4. Jaenner 1810 geboren und auch bei seiner Trauung am 22. Juli 1845 war sein name noch Pobesdiner. Waere interessant wer noch alte Urkunden zum Ursprung des Namens "Bubestinger" hat. 

Ich habe auf Facebook eine Gruppe der Bubestinger's gegruendet. Solltest du einen Facebook account haben, dann lade ich dich ein ein Mitglied dieser Gruppe zu bekommen. Du findest mich auf Facebook unter:

I was always amazed by time lapse movies. Recently I got a new camera and I had to try to make a time lapse movie myself. My first attempt was a time lapse movie of a Prickly Pear cactus flower in my backyard. These cactus flowers bloom only one day. I setup my my camera on a tripod and I used a timer to shot a picture ever minute for 13 hours. I ended up with about 800 pictures. Here is the link to my second time lapse movie on YouTube

Now with my Motorola smartphone it is a lot easier to take time lapse movies. The camera has a setting for slow motion and time lapse videos. Just set the camera on a table or somewhere, start the time lapse video and that's it.
