  1. Reminds me of this documentary...            
  2. I haven’t seen any either for the last 2 weeks. Just bought a few boxes of tissues that were still plentiful.   ETA...best not to use the eucalyptus impregnated tissues  
  3. So many benefits of feeling contented with loved ones at home.  We’re happy to be introverts. We don’t need a vacation from our regular life. 
  4. He’s lovely @arunadasi.  Similar to our neighbour’s cat that she rescued from an animal charity in Italy. He had been hit by a car and abandoned. Lucky for him, the charity paid for several operations. He stays with us all day, every day and goes home at nighttime.  Quite a character with his one seeing eye and only three teeth! We call him Bob.  
  5. Just in case this helps anyone else...we bought these items from Amazon and the Wii works perfectly! HDMI Adapter 11.95€ (I see the price has gone up to 14.95€ today).  As per the YouTube link that @pappnase posted, it is very basic though works fine. https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B07Q37766X/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1   HDMI cable 7.99€. We bought the 4K though as @SpiderPig says, probably not really necessary to be 4K though cheap enough anyway and we needed it for something else. https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B004BEMD5Q/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1   We are mindful not to order much from Amazon at this time though we needed some other items for working from home.  
  6. What made you smile today?

    How lovely, Germany’s Papa Goose...   And this... https://youtu.be/gDrS8EcIDTw
  7. This car has been parked in our street for a long time.  No one knows who it belongs to.  Amazing that people still leave their cars with valuables in clear view.   
  8. Thank you all...  @pappnase, we ended up ordering one of those garbage converters as they were available and, a 4K hdmi cable.  We’ll see what happens!
  9. It’s an LG, OLED65C8LLA.AEU 4K   We saw on some amazon reviews that some converters don’t upscale to full screen size....would the TV normally do that? Would be nice to have full screen if possible.  
  10. We’d like to use our Nintendo Wii again and connect to a newer OLED 4K TV. This is the current cable...     Is it best to get a converter where the coloured plugs fit into it or, a complete single cable fitting into the Wii and then directly into HDMI socket on the TV?  Any brand recommendations? Any advice much appreciated. 
  11. What are you cooking today?

    ...with plenty of butter and a splash of Worcester sauce  
  12. Why are you happy today?

    That’s lovely @bramble.  We’re happy to see several blackbirds in our garden picking up nest building twigs that we left for them after a recent garden cleanup.  They are also busy collecting worms from under our hedges. I’ve missed having blackbirds around since we moved to Germany...in the UK, we had several tame blackbirds that would hop into my kitchen to steal dry cat food.  Our cats just ignored them. Other neighbors fed them from their hands. Even the postman used to bring a handful of raisins for them most days.    Nature is hopefully benefiting enormously from the human lockdown. 
  13. What made you laugh today?

    Oh, don’t waste wine like that  
  14. Bought a cat

    Reminded me of this moronic woman...   https://www.huffingtonpost.co.uk/2015/08/28/daily-mail-journalist-shona-sibary-dogs_n_8054906.html?guccounter=1&guce_referrer=aHR0cHM6Ly93d3cuZ29vZ2xlLmNvLnVrLw&guce_referrer_sig=AQAAAFaUVQ2RiIuYvGPr6N9F2YdmvVfqLAFcH4nCZn4BU_E3EmO8JLGhngpeb7jomLFM003a3XUhDer5nwP5xcC03Utbr8yjAqspwzZtOcug-p1Dt0K_nyMay155KOjs2VDrnsv-jAlVtHeNGBy_fYKODPmMBw-EQUlkHGO3Fl2je_If
