074 - Burg Bucherbach

Hauptstra√üe, P√ľttlingen, SL, DE location_on N 49 18.010, E 006 53.820

Burg Bucherbach ist die Ruine einer Wasserburg in K√∂llerbach, einem Ortsteil von P√ľttlingen im Regionalverband Saarbr√ľcken. Sie ist neben der Burg Kerpen bei Illingen die bedeutendste Niederungsburg des Saarlandes. Die erste urkundliche Nennung der Burg erfolgte 1326 in einem Erbvertrag der Grafen von Saarbr√ľcken-Commercy als maison dou val de cologne (deutsch: Haus im K√∂llertal), als Graf Johann I. die Grafschaft Saarbr√ľcken mit Ausnahme der Burgen Saarbr√ľcken und Bucherbach an Erzbischof Balduin von Trier verpf√§ndete. Graf Philipp I. von Nassau-Saarbr√ľcken bestimmte die Burg Burgelebach 1412 zum Witwensitz seiner Frau Elisabeth von Lothringen.

Im Streit mit Herzog Ludwig dem Schwarzen von Pfalz-Zweibr√ľcken stellte Johann II. von Nassau-Saarbr√ľcken die Anlage im Jahr 1460 unter den Schutz des Pfalzgrafen Friedrich des Siegreichen.

Unter Philipp II. kam es um die Mitte des 16. Jahrhunderts zu einer umfassenden Erneuerung der Burg, ehe diese 1627 im Drei√üigj√§hrigen Krieg durch kaiserliche Truppen unter F√ľhrung des Grafen Kratz von Scharfenstein verw√ľstet wurde. 1645 folgte zwar ein Wiederaufbau, doch nachdem die Anlage erneut niedergebrannt worden war, wurde sie nachfolgend nur noch als herrschaftliches Hofgut verpachtet.

1740 wurde die Burg als verfallen bezeichnet, es standen noch alle Mauern und T√ľrme, doch ohne Dach. F√ľrst Wilhelm Heinrich von Nassau-Saarbr√ľcken √ľberlie√ü sie den Einwohnern der umliegenden Orte als Steinbruch. W√§hrend der Franz√∂sischen Revolution wurden die verbliebenen Geb√§ude und L√§ndereien als Nationalgut eingezogen und verpachtet.

Nachdem schon 1930 eine erste Renovierung der Burgruine stattgefunden hatte, folgte zuletzt 1983/84 eine grundlegende Sanierung.

2011 wurde die Burgruine unter der Leitung der Interessengemeinschaft Burg Bucherbach e.V. erneut saniert.

Beschreibung Die Burg ist eine ann√§hernd quadratische Anlage von etwa 40 Meter innerer Seitenl√§nge mit vier runden Eckt√ľrmen mit etwa zehn Meter Durchmesser von denen sich alle bis auf den Ostturm in ansehnlicher H√∂he erhalten haben (Kastelltyp). Die Bausubstanz geht im Wesentlichen auf den Umbau im 16. Jahrhundert zur√ľck, wobei offenbar die Grundmauern der Anlage des 14. Jahrhunderts verwendet wurden. Beim Umbau ging der Wehrbaucharakter verloren, so wurden dem Westturm im Mittelgeschoss drei gro√üe Fenstergew√§nde herausgebrochen und zum Rebenberg hin eine Altane vorgelagert. Zwischen S√ľd- und Ostturm lag ein repr√§sentativer Wohnbau mit dem Zugang zur Burg √ľber die heute versch√ľtteten Gr√§ben.

Jedes Jahr finden zahlreiche Feste und M√§rkte (Weihnachtsmarkt, Mittelaltermarkt, Weinfest, Bauernmarkt, Konzerte usw.) im Burgareal statt. Der Tag ist unter der Zugangsbr√ľcke versteckt.

345 - Trigger

Apple Valley Rd, Apple Valley, CA, US location_on N 34 32.526, W 117 16.407

Trigger (originally named Golden Cloud, July 4, 1934 ‚Äď July 3, 1965) was a 15.3 hands (63 inches, 160 cm) palomino horse made famous in American Western films with his owner and rider, cowboy star Roy Rogers. Roy and his wife, Dale Evans, lived in Apple Valley. When Trigger passed away, Roy had him stuffed and he was placed on display at the Roy Rogers/Dale Evans museum, first located in Apple Valley and then in Victorville. Sometime before the museum closed, a fiberglass model of Trigger was made and placed on top of the museum, where it could be seen from the freeway. When the museum was moved to Branson, Missouri, fiberglass Trigger went with it. And when the Branson museum closed, Trigger and other memorabilia was put up for auction. The local Apple Valley developer who built Roy Rogers house bought fiberglass Trigger, with the intent of keeping him in Apple Valley as a tribute to the local hero cowboy. (The original "real" stuffed Trigger was also auctioned, along with Roy's dog, Bullet, and Dale's horse, Buttercup). Fiberglass Trigger was put on display at a local Apple Valley cemetery, where Roy and Dale are buried. Trigger was recently taken down from the cemetery for restoration.
There were a handful of people who were offended by Trigger being on display at the cemetery because, well, he is anatomically correct.
Trigger found his final home in Apple Valley at the Spirit River Center in February 2018. You will find the tag in the stone pillar, closest to Trigger, on the side facing the parking lot. Look in the cracks! HINT: Knee high.

The Union victory concluded an early Confederate offensive campaign in eastern Kentucky.

This lake (actually a reservoir) offers good fishing for a variety of species including Bass, Walleye, Crappie, Perch, Rainbow Trout, and Kokanee.

҆pilberk Castle sits on a hilltop in Brno, Southern Moravia, Czech Republic. Its construction began in the first half of the 13th century by the PŇôemyslid kings and complete by King Ottokar II of Bohemia. The strategic significance of the castle was demonstrated when, in 1645, Brno and ҆pilberk, led by Commander Raduit de Souches, withstood a¬†three-month siege against considerable Swedish forces.

҆pilberk entered public consciousness as a¬†centre of tribulation and oppression for the first time during the First World War when, together with military prisoners, civilian objectors to the Austro-Hungarian regime were imprisoned there.

Then in the first years of the Nazi occupation of Czechoslovakia, in 1939-41, the German army and Gestapo carried out extensive reconstruction at ҆pilberk in order to turn it into a¬†model barracks in the spirit of the romantic historicism so beloved of German third reich ideology. Several thousand Czech patriots suffered in ҆pilberk at that time, some of whom were put to deaths there.
