I am counting the days until my nieces are old enough for me to run a game for them. One is about to turn 6 and the other will be 1 in May. It'll be a while.

Nonsense! I started playing with my kids when they were 7 and 1.

That said, don't expect a lot of progress, take frequent breaks, and dice big enough they won't swallow. :-)

my 4 year old loves rolling my dice and plays with my dragon mini, whnen I was painting minis he sat next to me and "painted" a plastic mini with one of my brushes and some water as "paint"

the seed is planted I think

LOL.

We've always been a dirty bunch at our table.

Hardcore gaming for 3 hours and 2 hours of dirty jokes and wacky stories :-)

Sometime I can get 4 hours of gaming in if I impress upon them the fact that at some point we are going to grow old and die so I'd like to get campaigns to a conclusion at some point!

The 11 year old daughter of one of my players is part of our group now. We have to watch our language and the dirty jokes are right out.. lol.

*note: I thought she was 13 until this weekend. That's about the age my son began gaming with us, too. He no longer gets to sit in with us because of his job and the rock band he travels around in. Which is a shame, because now we'd be able to tell dirty jokes around him now.

when the son of one group member turned ten we gifted him with a players handbook (2e I think) now he is 26 and last year he joined our group as a regular

last sunday we babtized (right word?) the girl
which meant a bit of extra stress with a lot of family coming in

but all was good and well and we had a nice party

some very stressful weeks and work are behind me, organizing the build of a cardboard mock up model for a new production line in an empty building, organizing a "best project of the year" day with 400 attendends and organizing and moderating a week long workshop with 25 people from different countries (where we optimized the sonn-to-be-bought line with the mock up model)

now the weeks till christmas should be rather relaxed

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

this year we get an extra bonus holyday:
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

usually this is only a holiday in a few East-German states but because this year is the 500th jubilee we get a special gift holiday :- )

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

31 / .13 = 23846%
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
