DON'T BE LIKE THE MONKEY!!!!

I did it the right way, but I think it is much easier in Germany with a lot of social security, very strong job markets and a lot of employee rights protecting you from getting fired to easily

choosing (by shear luck) the right profession and the right company did help as well

31th of october is "reformation day" , the day Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the church door in Wittenberg and started the protestant movement

Guten Morgen, aeglos! Wie geht's?

Although it's probably more Guten Tag for you at this point in time.

I cannot hear or read the words guten tag without thinking of ooter(sp) from the Simpsons. Can't help but wonder what German folk think of the character, or what Australians think of the episode roasting them thoroughly.
is it the fat boy in Lederhosen? he is funny, no problem at all with the stereotype
ok. Was always curious. I wonder what stereotypes you guys have of us over there.

for tourist

as rhe longboat said, the Simpsons rich Texan, no matter where in the US. ou are from or which color you are. :-)
in my area there where a lot of US military and the GIs all seemed like a crossover between Tom Cruse top gun character and the charly sheen parody of him

most Germans think there is only bubblegum English in the US, no dialects or accents and differences between black, white, hispanic are hard to grasp

urgh, sorry for the many misspellings, I was typing on the phone while rocking the baby stroller

Excuse the bad German. I'm into day five of Duolingo:D
Oh gods, a paper German!
I've got 18 months or so to get to the "I'd like a beer, where's the bathroom" point. Anything above that is gravy

My German teacher in college was from Bavaria. His name was Dr. Gutzeit (Good Time). He really was a great teacher.

About all I remember from those long ago days is how to order a beer (extend your thumb and say "Ein Bier" or thumb and forefinger or "Zwei Biere). Every now and then I'll hear a phrase or word that rings a bell, but I drank too many beers in college tor remember much more than that (Ich habe zu viele Biere getrunken), if I recall correctly.

you had a teacher called Dr. Goodtime who taught you to order beer ??

sounds like the lyrics of an 80s hair metal song

That's the nominal percentage paid. But APR is the annualized rate. We would need to know how many days the account was overdrawn by 13 cents to know how long Treppa had use of that prime capital. If, for instance, she left the account overdrawn for 3 business days, you'd have to multiply that percentage by: (number of business days in the year)/3.

there are words, and they form sentences

gay marriage- german politic:
looks like gay/lesbian marriage will finally get equal rights on friday, Federal Chancler Merkel said in an interview that she no longer thinks it a problem and her coalition partner, the Labour party, promptl forced a voting for friday. 3 parties will vote yes: Labour (social democratic party) Greens and Socialists (the Liberal party would as well, but they are not part of parliament at the moment)
Merkels conservative "christian democratic union" will most likely vote half and half and their partner the Bavaria-only "christian social union" will vote against it

Germanys biggest Rock festival "Rock am Ring" had to be interrupted yesterday evening mid-show because of terror dangers.
the police had noticed that 3 emploees of a companie working in the open air arena had ties to a radcical islamistic group.
they stopped the band in the middle of a song and asked the 80.000 people to go back to the camping grounds.

the truly amazing reaction of the fans:
no boos, no panik
they went quietly and orderly
than they started singing "you'll never walk alone" and an old german song from the 80s "pure lust am leben" by Geier Sturtzflug
it roughly translats "you can take everything from me, but you can never take,
you can never take the pure joy of living"

my gaming table repair is another step foreward.

last week we re-atteched the legs (that we had to saw of for transport)

this weekend I grinded down and varnishd the tabletop, I did a bad job when I varnished it back then (8 years ago)

and over the years countless crumbs of ereaser rubber had stuck to the varnish, they blocked the sand paper in seconds and I had to use my whole stock of paper to do it

on friday, before the gameing session, the group and I will carry the tabletop upstairs, turn the table on its legs, attech the top, attach the glass window in the middle (that is still without monitor screen below it) and gaming can again be done in style

I am soory for your losses, John.
Thankfully there are great people in here who can be very helpful, but what little advise I can give: don't be afraid to use professional help, friends can give support but help sometimes needs to be from someone outside, with special knowledge.
I know it helped me a lot with some depression issues 10-15 years ago.
You can always open your mind and heart to us at The Treeford (or in pm)

did you know that "stein", the German word for stone, is not used in German for a beer tankard.
the German name for a "stein" is Bierkrug, Bierseidl, Humpen or if it is 1 liter in size Maßkrug or Maß.
Only the material it is made of is called Steinzeug (not Steingut even though the English Wikipedia calls both materials stoneware, they are different materials in German)

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
