  1. Try Ebay Kleinanzeigen and Quoka. Immobilienscout24.de is also worth a try, but that will not be free. OTOH, they do have a tool where you can allegedly check the interest beforehand, to decide whether it's worth putting up an ad.
  2. Hi Sardocasa, and welcome to TT.   Hmm. Depends on when your rental is available, how long, who it's suited for (singles, couple, family, group...) and how expensive it is.  Families will not be interested, as kids are in school in September. Those who don't need to take school holidays into consideration might be interested, but most will probably have made their plans already. If there's one thing Germans are generally not, it's spontaneous.  That may be a bit harsh, their humour is also not all that. Nor their tolerance for... oh never mind, you get the idea.   OTOH, why not put up an ad online, on those sites that are free or not too costly?
  3. @MechEng Long time no hear! Of course we have space, you're welcome to join us.
  4. Sadly, both Tincablinca and White Rose of Yorkshire have had to cancel... hope to see both of you soon!   Sign-up list for the next DUMB, on Friday, 09 August 2019 at 7:00 PM   1. Frollein 2.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to make a reservation for their outside seating, but maybe if I'm there early enough, we can snag a table. Looking forward to seeing everyone!  Or we could plan to go to Sky Beach for a drink after... White Rose of Yorkshire knows the secret handshake to get us in there!

    Oh FFS SL... what a twit you are. In your absence I had forgotten that. Getting my coat...
  6. Aspermuehle -- Bee product

    SL: This is a food question, so please leave it in the appropriate forum - that's why they were created. And you'll reach more of the people who are interested in food questions here too.   I tend to buy my products either at the local farmer's market, or my local Reformhaus (health food store), as I like to look at the labels, ask questions etc. before buying. However, the website seems quite professional and the products worth trying out. Why not place a small order to test it, and let us know how it works out?

Sadly, Stuttgart is sorely lacking in nice Biergarten!

  11. Peanut butter shortage - help!

    Have you tried the African shop kitty-corner across from what used to be Taco Heroes, near the Bahnhof? I'm sure I saw some in there just a couple weeks ago.

  14. Hi KimmyRS - I'm so sorry to hear of the turn your life has taken, and glad to hear that you have been able to get out of the situation and put some physical distance between yourself and your husband.   I'm not familiar with Friesenheim, but it doesn't appear to be all that large of a place. When I used the website of the "Kassenärztliche Vereinigung" (Association of Statutory Health Insurance Physicians) to search for an English-speaking pediatrician, none were to be found in Friesenheim itself. In Lahr and in Offenburg there are several options available. Unfortunately, the website is only available in German, but it's fairly easy to navigate. Use the "Arztsuche", and then put in the specialization you're looking for, the town or area, and specify that you want English-speakers.   For a job, probably the same holds true, that you will need to look further afield than Friesenheim if your German is minimal. However, both Lahr and Offenburg should have entry-levels jobs available. Check your local newspaper online, check the bulletin board in the supermarket (both often have ads for cleaning jobs), go by the local restaurants, fast food outlets etc. No, these won't be jobs for the long-term, but it's a start.   Wishing you and your daughter all the best, as you find your feet and try to figure out what path your life can take from here!
