    The grandbabies got all the eggs on their hunt..........Princess, my favorite, did open up her treat eggs, the plastic that one can put stuff in, and shared a few of the Hershy Kisses with me..........VERY FEW.........We load up the plastic ones with LOTS of M&M's, Reeces pieces, and stuff for them to find......maybe a couple dozen or three.........And then for the real eggs, probably 5 dozen we give a money value for colors..............purple=.25, blue=.10........on and on.............Then there is a bonus HUGE egg for each one to find with LOTS and lots of stuff..................All of that spread out over perhaps an acre of woods here around the house...........God is good.........Dennis

    Amen to the reason for the season. We have a couple hundred mile trip planned in the morning with the K hack. Fifty miles or so along the Salmon River canyon, up over White Bird Pass, across the prairie, down to and along the Clearwater River, and then back home along a different route. All back roads. This retirement stuff is pretty great!

    I completely forgot about Easter. I am wrapping up two weeks on the road in China and Korea and needless to say, no one celebrates Easter here.

    Read yesterday that China has the world's largest Christian population. I would not have thought this and I imagine it is not particularly evident to a traveler.

    Roborider,

    You would be surprised. There were about 33 million Christians in China, according to a 2010 survey. My church has a very active Chinese congregation, due to people coming to study at the University of North Carolina. They have a Bible study group that meets after church to discuss the sermon and the application to life. Many Christians in China have "house churches," which are held in individual homes, so the real number is not completely known.

    Christianity in Korea is also a major religion, with about 14 million Christians there. Our church small group host family is Korean and they are very devout.

    I wouldn't dispute your figures, but not once in either country did I hear, see, or think of it.

    33 million is 2.4% of the Chinese population.

    Excellent point; there's probably more WHITE people here than Christians!

    OK, to try and get this back to sweeter, gentler thread, how about this chocolate Easter bunny? I nabbed this from the Vintagent's blog. It appears to be a mid 30's BMW.

    Actually, with the girder forks, it's probably a Zündapp K500.
