  1. He was one of that group of steady, supportive roles.  RIP
  2. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Talk to her family- they need to have a discussion with Mum, the whole family, and her MD.  Explain  your feelings about  their Mother putting pressure on you,  Sounds as if she is trying not to move-  not unusual for any older persons. Fear of moving, losing independence.  But this is not your problem, this needs to be addressed by her obviously caring family. As optimista says- be firm and set limits.  You sound a caring neighbour, but you can be drawn into a difficult relationship here.
  3. Recommendations for orthopaedic surgeon

    And you could call your Krankenkasse and ask for names of those who deal with workplace injuries.
  4. Politics Gen XYZ

    I go for intelligence, substance  over style! I think  Angela looks fine for her age- and she seems very comfortable with her image. What is important that we choose for ourselves, and not other's choice.
  5. Always wise to be fairly honest with prospective landlord! And join the Mieterverein!
  6. What are you cooking today?

    Complete- so tuna, boiled eggs. Tomatoes, spring onions, cucumbers, radishes, avocados  are all a given!  Large bowl needed for this! I like French dressing, or Thai sesame dressing. 
  7. What are you cooking today?

    Mmm! Must try that. Salad Nicoise today- complete with green beans, olives and new potatoes. But no anchovies.
  8. Why are you unhappy today?

    I carry round spray on holiday - have reacted really badly to sand flies in Cuba and beasties in Australia. These insects can look after themselves!
  9. Zoll: Help, Birthday Gift at Customs

    They do check on-line for prices of items, so  undervaluing this package may well cost you the tax . Depends whether  M-I-L sent 20  pairs of shoes, different sizes!!  
  10. Things to ponder

    Yes- you have a good point. We do often assume too much.  
  11. Things to ponder

    Sadly, many of us have no trust in people. So many scams/ phishing that we have become cynical and sarcastic.
  12. Tips for passing a practical driving test

      Wondering the same thing!  He definitely knows more traffic rules than I do! He must have really annoyed the tester🤔
  13. Why are you unhappy today?

    My dentist has all the bells and whistles! Plus the TV with choice of films!  I usually go for the soporific underwater film . Something soothing about gulping fish and tentacular octopus!
  14. Failed my Eye Test for driving License

    Could also be retinal photos, but best to get a complete check up.
  15. Why are you unhappy today?

    Tooth or dentist?! Good luck!!
