The first Christmas – the way it was 2,000 years ago
2000 years ago, something happened in a small town just outside of Jerusalem that changed the course of history. The birth of a baby, known as Jesus, put Bethlehem on the map – and the world has never been the same. We still mark our calendars by it today.

Dear visitors, ‘Zdenko’s corner’ blog is celebrating 5th Anniversary!
I have now been writing on this web site for almost five years. How time flies! Sometimes it feels like just yesterday that I started tinkering with blog stories. Other times it feels like I’ve been a blogger forever!

Bicycling renaissance in North America – cycling trends and policies
Pucher et al recently examined cycling trends in North America,1,2 detailing cycling rates, funding and safety over the last two decades. The authors also explored bicycling trends, policies and safety in three large Canadian cities (Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver) and six large cities in the USA (Portland, Minneapolis, San Francisco, Chicago, Washington and New York). Understanding the elements of initiatives that led to the cities’ success in promoting cycling may provide valuable examples for other cities.

Life in Croatia

By: Cody McClain Brown

A blog about Croatian and American culture
Whenever I fly back to Oklahoma I feel like I’m shedding layers of culture, like a snake sheds skin. The move from Europe to Mid-America takes me from a place where almost everything has an air of elegance, from the small cups of coffee to my finely dressed compatriots flying alongside me, and drops me in a place where elegance is a word more likely to be mistaken for elephant.

Family Life

By: Christella Morris

WHY I DON’T WANT ANY MORE PRESENTS FOR MY BOYS.
We’re pretty lucky in our family. I can cross off three out of four birthdays in May alone! Then Christmas and the fourth birthday (the youngest) are both taken care of in December. This makes for a lot less time worrying about buying presents and a lot more time thinking about how much crap stuff we have.
