  1. Past Hour
  2. Hi everyone,  We've been living in the EU and Germany for over 6 years and my husband just received an incredible new job offer - sadly, it is back in the US. We would rather stay here! ... Naja, that's how life works these days. Hopefully we will return soon. We still had all of our things in storage in the US so I won't need to take much from here at all. And of course, I can't take any of our electrical items (sadly, including our recently purchase Liebherr wine refrigerator that is only 30 days old! Still has the wrapping on it) I'm posting everything on Kleinanzeigen, but also want to post a notice here. Especially if anyone is relocating/moving new to Germany and needs furniture and things to get set-up. We certainly have enough to get a 1 bedroom apartment almost fully furnished. Especially if you are moving to Düsseldorf.   Some examples of what we are selling:  -  Liebherr wine refrigerator. Dual-zone, 34 bottles. Brand spanking new -  Fans (needed for this summer!!) -  AEG AirOundio A/C with window kit. New in September 2018 and only used a handful of times. Not sure I can part with it this week ) -  Hair styling items:  Hair dryers, GHD curling wand, GHD straightener, etc.  -  Humidifier -  Kärcher Steam Cleaner -  Philips Immersion Blender -  Iron and ironing board -  Siemens iQ series washer & dryer -  Miele Ecoline vacuum  -  Samsung 45" SmartTV -  Ikea Besta cabinets (a lot! White with white gloss doors/drawers) -  Ikea Kleiderschrank (white, 3 pieces with drawers, hanging and shelving. Custom knobs) -  Ikea Stall shoe cabinet. (white, 2 cabinets with 3 drawers each) -  Possibly our bed (180x200). But I love it too much and haven't decided yet -  PLANTS!  -  Artecnica designer white Trianon pendant lights (set of 3) - never even had the chance to install 2 of them.   All items will be sold in the next few weeks as I am moving by end of July.  You can follow as I post items on Kleinanzeigen here:  and stay current with what is still available. I am in the process of taking photos for all items and getting them posted, so please be patient.  Any questions/interest, please let me know!    **Also -- I will be moving with our own 20ft container (using Crown Relocation) just in case anyone is looking for a small bit of space to get back to the US. I certainly won't fill it all! I would have to ask if it is ok to combine so that we can use all of the space. Just let me know if you are interested.**   ***never posted an ad on here before, so I hope this was correct!   
  3.   WTF?  Why do you assume everyone who does not like Trump policies must be a Democrat-lover?
  4. Accused of torrenting copyrighted material

      Even a few seconds uploading is enough to get screwed if you get caught.   You normally receive the letter after a couple of weeks.   But they will have plenty of time go get your contact data.
  5. Job contract ending in few days - no extension (yet)

    Quick question: does going to bundesagentur für arbeit require an appointment, or is it walk-in? Should I simply schedule to be there an hour or so before opening hours (similar to Ausländerbehörde where people line up earlier and are dealt with on a first-come first-serve basis)?
  6. Generali Vision can't charge when cancelling early

    I signed in 2007, 12 years ago and this is a 22 year plan :-( it will be finished in 2029! thanks for your advice but I doubt being able to manage this portfolio on my own and I refuse to invest any more in this even the lowest amount allowed which is EUR 150 a month. I used to invest EUR 500 ! am desperate to lose so much money...
  7. Politics Gen XYZ

    Wealthy people promoting a wealth tax for themselves -      
  8. S1 Health Insurance and Brexit Questions

    Once again the TT community, and the wider expat community, are indebted to john g.  for sensible, impartial advice.  Thank you john.
  9. How to date without tinder

    You've gotten some really good advice here.    So what to do in the meantime, consider working on yourself. What are positive attributes you can bring to a relationship. Consider  the kind of person you're interested in attracting, what's non-negotiable for you, what kind of relationship you may want to have with someone special. What are some things about yourself that may be difficult or an issue in dating or in a relationship, What are some things you may want to self-improve.   Relationships don't just happen in a vacuum, no matter how much you may be longing to have one. No matter how lonely you may feel or how desperate you are to have a relationship.   Relationships are complex that require openness, trust, honesty, introspection, emotional support, thoughtfulness, respect, compromise, good listening skills, time... etc. etc.   Hope this list doesn't scare you, but it takes effort to make a relationship thrive once you meet someone.

  11. Owners of house will not empty basement we are paying for

    We are real tenants and renting from the owners through an immobilien company. 
  12. Today
  13. People are already calling on SEC to investigate. Lots of details, but I think the stock will rise slowly, because the market potential is huge. By most metrics this will go above $5 and easily $3, so I am relaxed and waiting for it, been waiting for 2 years.   Remember: although advertised for women, it also works on men, without the side effects of Viagra, like heart issues.   The underlying value is much higher, of course with low volume stocks you take high risk, but the gains can also be very high. The market cap is around 200M€ right now. the expected revenue is at least 100M€ per year, in the US alone. They just got $60M from AMAG for having it FDA approved.   I´m still making a good profit (average price was .58€), I´ve waited 2 years, I can wait 2 more.

    Did you try to put the same question in Google?
  16. Small cabinet with 3 drawers

  17. 2 pax closets

  18. Nope, they’re not private. There have been some sitting outside of my front door along with some bike sharing for the last week or two. I think there may be more than one company though. One is green, which I’m assuming is Lime, but the other has a different color. 
  19. Good to know, I'll check then with the hospital if they have "office from Stadt" and can help us doing these certificates.   I will also ask for the international one to use it in our embassy to get birth certificate from our home country and then ask for child passport and then apply for Visa for the child which will take at least six months for this process if we did it through the embassy "But that's fine, since we can apply for health insurance, Kindergeld and Elterngeld using these Geburtsurkunde then the Visa can wait with no problem.   Thank you again for your time and help. Have a great day.
  20. greedy landlord

    You will get back some of the Nebenkosten if you paid too much. The landlord has to give you a detailed overview of what was used and return the rest of the money. Just make sure they do a Zwischenablesung (reading of meters) when you move out. Did you rent the apartment empty or furnished? AFAIK there are different rules and regulations for furnished apartments.   Check which office of the Mieterverein is closest to you. and maybe give them a call to ask where you can go to get help in English.    
  21. Why are you happy today?

    Maybe that's why they wanted out of the EU. 
  22.   Again, telc's own website says the certificates are valid for an unlimited time. Please call them directly.

  24.   sure, I get that having it too warm would be distracting, but this really seemed too cold for true comfort.   but I take your word for it - thanks for the explanation  
  25. TV channels reset all of a sudden

    The cable companies reshuffle their channels all the time. It's one of the most annoying things about cable TV in Germany IMO.   You're right that you have to start a new channel scan. You should chose "Cable (Digital)" or something like that. If BBC is gone after you rescan, they may have dropped the channel or moved it to a different package (for extra payment, of course). You should check their website for more information.
  26. I've just posted a silly photo
