Just a quick blog post for today’s 12th anniversary of the Bleistift blog:
One of Count Alexander von Faber-Castell’s estates, Wolfgangshof, maybe five miles from Faber-Castell’s headquarters, was recently used as the backdrop for a TV show about Franconian folk music (as far as I know the first TV show of its kind).
There doesn’t seem to be any geoblocking going on as I can watch this video here in the UK without problems. It is available from the BR Mediathek (from Bavaria’s public-service radio and television broadcaster).
Count Alexander von Faber-Castell was the first “Faber-Castell” Count – before his marriage he was known as Count Alexander zu Castell-Rüdenhausen.
You can read more about him on Sean’s Contrpauntalism blog or in my blog post Schwanberg and the Pencil Cedar.

Happy blog anniversary! 🙂
Congratulations on making it to 12 years! Few blogs manage to run that long while posting as consistently as you have. I look forward to many more years of reading and enjoying Bleistift.
12 years already! Many congratulations! 🙂
Happy 12th anniversary!
Thank you very much for your kind comments and congratulations.
Koralatov, unfortunately I have not posted much in recent months, so it’s by far not the consistency I wish for. The problem is that I have too many ideas for blog posts but no time to do them.
Congratulation for the 12th anniversary and for the work put into the blog.
