baby girl is putting on weight good

boy is still in love with her

my wive has already here - before pregnancy weight and figure - I don't know how she does this


5 people marked this as a favorite.

my baby girl is named after 3 strong women - here great-grandmothers:

Minna Schmidt, my paternal grandma and the only grandparent that lived past my second year. She brought up 4 children during WWII and theNazi regime and was always the matriach and center of our family

Elisabeth Sidow,my maternal grandma who died before my birth. She had to flee today chech republic as a german war refugee with a toddler and a baby (my mum) she then raised 4 children with 2 jobs and a drunken ex-nazi husband who spend every cent he could get on game lf chance and beer

Eveline Maria Martha Naumann, my wifes maternal grandma who became a war refugee at 16 in Selisia, in todays Poland, trying to outrun the soviets with an ox-cart and on foot after the ox had died. she survived the firestorm of burning Dresden, lived through right wing Nazi and left wing Kommunist dictatorships and raised two kids in the economy of scarcity of East Germany. Later she cared at the same time for her old aunt, her very ill daughter and her young grandchild - my wife

may some of the strength of these there live on in my baby girl and may she never have to endure the same things they did

tonight they try to defuse a WW2 bomb right next to the Autobahn I have to take to work :-/

I hope everything will go well, two years ago a WW2 bomb blasted a 20ft wide 15ft deep crater in that Autobahn and I had to go through Frankfurt Inner City for 2 weeks - no fun in rush hour traffic :-(

just last month a bomb was found in the river in Frankfurt but it was no longer able to detonate

it seems just like yesterday, that we gifted the son of a member of our gaming group with a players handbook on his 10th birthday.
but he really is already a man grown, 25, with a mighty beard and a blue-green mohawk.
his father had to leave our groupa few years a go due to work reasons - now the son has joined our gaming group

chicken soup has been eaten

with alphabet noodles of course - it only helps against a cold if there are alphabet noodles in it - the noodles must be roasted together with onions and carrotts before cooking, like my grandma always did when I was ill as a kid :-)

in my hometown Gelnhausen, yesterday the Unicorn Apothecary closed after beeing in buisness for 434 years, founded 1582.

the interiour was unchangd since the last refurbishing in 1850.

the closing is due to difficulties in meeting pharamcy regulations and historic site regulations at the same time and fewer customers due to no parking space right in front of the building, you had to walk almost 100 meters o.O

:-(

That's sad. It's amazing you have an apothecary that predates the settlement of Eastern North America (Vikings notwithstanding). What a loss!

I learned today that they will preserv the apothecary rooms and male them available for guided tours, thats something at least

and in the same street is an Inn called "The Lion" which was in the same family since 1506, until last year the widow of the last owner tricked her stepson out of the testament and sold it to someone else, grrrrrr at least it is still in buisness and mostly unchanged

I don't even know what those are, but some form of venison stew with dumplings sounds amazing.

they are made by roasting cut down toast in butter, than mix taht with a dough from floar egg-yellow, salt and milk and gently pull the egg-white beaten stiff, under

then you wrap it in a napkin or a kitchen towel and put it in hot but not cooking waterfor 40 minutes
before serving, slice it and roast the slices in butter

3. crime
In Saxony (city of Chemnitz, 5 minutes from my wifes hometown) police tried to arrest an syrian terrorist who had a lot of explosives in his flat and apparently was planing to suicide bomb berlin airport
police managed to let the man escape and he did escape a sexond time when they chased him
syrian refugees caught him yesterday, tied him up with extension cord ( and gave him a beating for good measure)
Police today managed to let him hang himself in his cell with his own t-shirt o.O

real and unsarcastic statement of the states minister of justice:
"we did not think that a suicide bomber would commit suicide" *facepalm*

I don't understand the point of making kids eat things they don't like. I mean I wouldn't give them candy for dinner or ice cream for breakfast, but I wouldn't make a plate of liver, onions, brussel sprouts and a side of creamy okra and demand they eat it happily either.

It is said that the taste is calibrated in the first 5 years, so I try to expose the boy to many pdifferent things.

I insist that he tries everything but he does not need to eat what he don't like.
I hate it when he wants to eat just noodles or potatos without the sauce when he has no idea how the sauce even tastes like.

Morning, all. What did I miss?
Well, Sid and Nancy finally decided to take the plunge, and began plotting their trip to Niagara Falls. Meanwhile, in an effort to better work his ten different jobs, Patrick sought help from the Roslin Institute in Scotland. Across town, Max and Gary were stuck in a terrible traffic jam after several enraged pigeons managed to set fire to.....NO, WAIT! That's my soap opera!

we will go to IKEA in a few minutes looking for a big-boy-bed for the Dwarfling

I hate ikea.

Wife and I got an entire entertainment center through them. The purchase was smooth, the delivery and assembly was not. As this was our first purchase after bedbugs almost destroyed our apartment, we opted for professional assembly. The delivery guy, mounting guy, and construction guy were three different people who arrived at three different times over the course of three weeks. Out of order. My wife fought with ikea over the course of those weeks without end, and and what should have been a simple job ended up being a long, slow, ugly slog with constructed bookcases doubling as chairs and exercise equipment because they were assembled and not moved because "moving them is not my responsibility". We will never shop there again.

However, the new bookcases are quite lovely, and bring the living room together.

well, the IKEA system is buy, bring home yourself, assemble yourself

no problem then,

yesterday we made a trip I got for my birthday from a groupof friends:

we had a guided tour through a reconstructed imperial roman military fort (a castrum) here in hessia.
It is called the Saalburg and was rebuild around 1900 on the old foundations by German Emporer Wilhelm II.
The castrum was part of the Limes border system between the Imperium Romanum and the wild Germanicum.

After the tour we where taught to shoot with a roman composite bow and to throw a javlin (at an imagined wild boar)

afterwards we ate in the Taberna food made after original roman recepies

it was great fun

The only really effective weight loss I have had in middle age is six months of extreme stress as my marriage tanked. I can't say I recommend it. I'll take fat and happy any day.

Though I do have to admit that having to log all of my intake really keeps my hand out of the cookie jar. I'm down roughly six pounds since I started tracking it two weeks ago. Which isn't bad.

I solve that problem by not having a cookie jar.
In America junk food is everywhere. We're one of the few countries where chronic obesity is a problem of the poverty-stricken. It is customary when someone has a birthday to bring in a cake to work for them. Multiply this out by 50 employees and you can see how that might go. Plus the amateur chefs bringing their experiments into work to let people enjoy them. Heck, the vending machine guy leaves snack packets he can't fit in the machines for us to have. I could literally eat for free most days if I was willing to eat crap.

wait,

the one having the birthday GETS a cake? over here he has to BRING the cake

Sounds like some of my sessions... A pile of potato chips, a pile of cookies, a pile of something else...

There was some progress by having dip sauces and some non-chips to have to dip in them (like slices of cucumber) but chips are staying strong...

with my every-friday-group we managed to NOT it chips anymore but with my roughly-every-eights-saturday-group the amount of Chips, Gummibärchen, cookies etc. is terrible, one players brings apples to battle it but just adding fruits on top of to much sweets does not solve the problem really
