tomorrow we likely go to a "mediveal market" (you would call it ren fair, I guess) in Steinau, where the brothers Grimm grew up.

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

Now I'm curious as to the fate off the innkeeper family that they left the inn after a half millennium
well, the last few generations it was a restaurant not an Inn. the last family owner had a son from first marriage who was a chef, working in another restaurant but willing and able to take over. after the owners death his second wife had the rights on the house and she did everything to keep her step-son out of it, tryed to run it herself, bankruppted it, then sold it to a new owner....b****
Yes. Heartless b!tch. People suck
I have heard the new Horror Adventures has an option for a lich to use a family bloodline as its phylactery. This inn and the family would be a good seed for an adventure, perhaps with the inn having hidden doors, secret passages, paintings with peephole eyes, etc. for the lich hidden in the secret forgotten basement crypt?

according to the letter, Fausts calling card read:

Magister Georgius Sabellicus Faustus iunior.

did you know that the Inn "Zum Löwen" (the lion) in Gelnhausen was in the hands of the same family from 1506 till 2012

famous guest have been :
Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, Germans National Poet. one of his most famous works is "Faust" a play about a medival scholar who sells his soul to the devil.

and a few centuries before him: Dr. Faust himself.
one of the most secure proofs he was a real person coms from a letter from Abott Johanns Trithemius where he told a friend about the shady figure of Faust who offerd to read his future in the Inn than fled Gelnhausen after he found out who Trithernius was

hi everyone


1 person marked this as a favorite.

one of the greatest heros of my childhood died today,
Bud Spencer,
hero of countless 70s and 80s Italo western and action adventures, silly, cheap films with endless brawling scenes but without blood and real violence

for as as children on his level he was on the same level as Han Solo or Winnetou (whose actor died last year)

grown man today where fan-shirts with his face and even a public swimming pool in Schwäbisch-Gemünd is named after him (he participated there at an international championsship in the 50)

aside from acting he was an entrepreneur and inventor (held a patent for a electric toothbrush with tooth paste reservoir) a Jurist, olympic swimmer, librarian, writer, composer, tv cook, producer (movies and music), helicopter pilot and a great personality

Rest in Peace, Bud

Not even to explain "Third" in Third Reich as a context of the World War II?!

for our Americans:

1. Reich:
The Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation,
lasted for almostexactly 1000 years until Napoleon conquered it ( itwasn't in good shape anyway)
Nationalversammlung: Revolution and 1. Democray after napoleon lasted for one summer in 1849
2.Reich:
The Prussian-German Empire, mid-19th century Prussian King Wilhelm the first and his chancelor Bismark united Germany (without Austria) and declared Wilhelm Emporer.
lasted until his grandson Wilhelm ll. and World War 1
Weimar Republic: 2. Democracy lasted until 1933 and the Nazis took over
3. Reich:
proclaimed by Hitler and he bosted it would last 1000 years again
Bonner Republic: 3. Democracy from 1945 until German unity 1989
Berliner republic: since then

and when you all come visiting I can show you the remains of that time like one of the palaces of Emporer Friedrich the First "Barbarossa" here in my hometown.

Like all the Emporers of the Holy Roman Empire he had no permanat residence and was constantly on the move from Empirial Free City to Free City.

And I can show you the city hall of Frankfurt (called "the Roman") where the 7 Lord Electors gathered to elect the next King of Germany, who could be meade Holy Roman Emporer of the German Nation by the pope.

On the balcony of the Roman the new King would present himself to the gathering people and throw a big party with dozens of roasted oxens
German soccer national teams who win international titels present themself today on the same balcony with their trophy.

the German states and our Federal system goes back to the borders during the holy roamn empire

Country Boy myself, I could not live in a city, I have fun in cities for a few days but get tired of them quickly, I need green around me.
M y village has 3500 people, the muncipality 13.000 in 7 villages.
But we are at the border of the Rhein-Main metropolitan Area around Frankfurt with nearly 6 million people, so I am not that rural and we are well provided with everything you need

Recipe for „Grüne Soße“ the Hessian National Dish (well, one of them anyway)

Green Sauce is a cold sauce from various dairy products and Eggs with 7 herbs (so basically it is a white sauce with green sprinkles)
You serf it with cooked potatoes. In Frankfurt (where the dish is originated) they like to serf boiled beef or Schnitzel but I prefer it the way it is served in my region: only with potatoes, which makes it vegetarian, I guess.

How to make it:
Step 1 basic sauce
- 1,5 cups of Quark/curd cheese
- 1 Cup of Schmand/Smetana (if not available use sour cream)
I use the Quark low fat and the Schmand full fat
- 0,5 cups yoghurt (pure, no fruit or sugar added)
- 1 Teaspoon of Mustard
- 1 Tablespoon of neutral Oil (I use Rapeseed or Sunflower)
- 2 Tablespoons of wine vinegar
- Pepper and Salt (over salt at this stage, the eggs will neutralize the salt taste later)
Mix everything with a whisk and add Milk until it has a viscosity halfway between pure yoghurt and milk

Step 2 the Herbs:
Traditionally 7 herbs are used:
parsley, chives (lots of), chervil, borage (a bit) ,sorrel (a bit), garden cress, and salad burnet
If you stray from that, it is no longer an Original Frankfurter Grüne Soße, but I am not from Frankfurt and in my home Valley we don’t take that to serious, some of the 7 herbs are not available in the garden at Easter time anyway. Chives and Parsley are the important basics. Chervil adds a lot of flavor.
I like to add Bears Garlic while it is growing in the garden.
Some people add Dill, Shallots or small amounts of lemon balm, mint or thyme
I would not recommend Lovage, Basil or Rosemary because thy overshadow all other herbs to much
> Cut the herbs to tiny pieces and add them to the sauce

Step 3 The Eggs:
- 5-6 hardboiled eggs cut into smallish pieces and stir them carefully into the sauce

Step 4 Eating:
- Put potatoes on your plate, mash them with a fork, put sauce over them

Step 5 Profit:
You may like to have a Jägermeister afterwards to digest it
