  1. Anmeldung options

    Can you rent a cheap room somewhere central to where you may be traveling in Germany, even if you would rarely be there? Or would something like that be illegal, if you are rarely living there? Just an idea-maybe not a good one. Maybe someone else can comment on this option.
  2. Food allergy chef card

    Meeresfrüchte are shellfish. Nüsse are nuts, so hazelnuts are Haselnüsse. 
  3. Food allergy chef card

    I'm not sure how much you know about German food, but, if you wish to avoid nuts, definitely avoid Nutella and any other brands of this type, as they have hazelnuts in them.

    Well, it's sounds like it might be difficult to eat in a restaurant. I did twice, once what I ordered came with spices on it, although I specifically asked them not to. The other time I was okay. Mostly I avoid restaurants, but I have more problems than your son. I would just buy my food elsewhere, but I am fluent in German, so just asked and read labels, etc.   I've never heard of Lupinen, so can't help you there. However, if you do want to say: Danke für deine Hilfe, you should change it to Ihre and not deine. 
  5. Have you tried putting these terms into Linguee? Here's a link for the first one you mentioned: https://www.linguee.de/deutsch-englisch/uebersetzung/Ausgabeaufschlag.html
  6. What made you smile today?

     I was just thinking last week that maybe we wouldn't get to see anymore pics of your beautiful Lilly. Thanks for posting!
  7. Why are you happy today?

      That made me happy to think how funny it sounded of the dog running off with the seed packet! Made me smile!
  8. Why are you happy today?

      The life of a dog- this reminds me of Reinhard Mey's song about the dog that seems to have it really easy, except that he can't open the refrigerator door.
  9. What made you smile today?

      Well, then you have not experienced God. He's real. I have experienced that. Just thinking about God being near me makes me smile!
  10. I have friend that comes in from Brandenburg (the city) to Zoo by train and she's done that for years. She doesn't usually work in the train, though. She sleeps on the way there. Perhaps Brandenburg is an option, but, like Engelchen said, I'd try Spandau first. 
  11. What do we need Car Friday for anyways?

    That took me a while to figure out what Car Friday was, and I celebrate Easter! Karfreitag or Good Friday is what it is. Now I get it! Hope everyone had a nice Good Friday!
  12. What made you smile today?

    I did take a picture of the Mona Lisa in the early 90's, because she was so famous, but I never could never figure out she was/is so famous. I was much more impressed with the huge wall paintings.
  13. Looking for English School

    I am not up on what's been going on with the JFK school in Berlin, but I assume they still have the curriculum in English and it's a state school. It's in Zehlendorf. Maybe that's an option for you. Someone else might have more info on that. I think Nelsen Mandela also is an option, which is in Berlin, too.
  14.   Well, now she knows about it. It seems I've known about it forever, but I probably learned it years ago during my first year in Germany. Don't include me in the "ALL."
  15. preparing/filing US taxes

    I never filed state taxes when I lived in Germany, as I wasn't a resident, but I never lived in Ohio, either. I'm not sure if being a resident or not is important for Ohio. I suppose you could find this out from the federal website.
