  1. Vodafone/Kabel Deutschland has dropped Deutsche Welle

    Just go online.
  2. What's got you flummoxed today?

      Ah- the Flummox of the day-    "Fashionable"- It seems you are comparing  being part of the LGBT community to a new pair of shoes or the latest bubble drink?  I do not know your back story, but  you do not seem to understand.
  3. Sounds like a job for the Pest control- which should be addressed by the Landlord. So-  Mieterverein is the immediate task
  4. Town pigeon numbers hit hard by renovation

    Give them food- they will arrive!   Friends in Toronto have had racoons using the cat flap for midnight snacks-  food is high priority!
  5. 3G in Restaurants?

    It is so disturbing to see apparently ordinary people lose control,  verbally abuse service staff, other customers. The sense of arrogant entitlement  seems to be everywhere.
  6. Filing tax in Germany after moving to UK for work

    Are you still registered in Germany?
  7. RIP Meatloaf- Bat out of Heaven! 
  8. 3G in Restaurants?

    Watched a few You tubes of Airline tantrums regarding non masks/ verbally abusive passengers.  All seemed to end in removal of offender,  diversion to  nearest airport,  Have things got so much worse, or is Social media fuelling this??
  9. A gastroscopy without the sedative?

    Agree with others- sedative is needed for a full Gastroscopy.  Not a full anaesthetic.   As catjones says- go back to your family MD and explain your concerns. If this is an upper Endoscopy, just looking at the larynx/ Oesophagus, then  a local anaesthetic spray may be used.  
  10. What are you cooking today?

    Chicken Soup with noodles: Chopped onions, carrots, leeks and any other veggies. Sauté in oil, add garlic, pepper., pinch curry powder. herbs.  Add any leftover chicken.  ( I freeze all leftover casseroles, even small amounts) Add chicken  broth, and pasta,  season, simmer till veggies tender,  About 20 minutes.. I like the little pasta forms. Remove a portion of veggies and puree and return to soup.  I have some small farfalline pasta ( mini bow ties).  Taste, season  to taste. If you have any fresh herbs - chop and sprinkle over . Hot crusty rolls or Baguette go well.
  11. Is your wife German?    Do you or wife have power of attorney?
  12. RIP. I first saw  Sidney Poitier in "To Sir with love", with a young Lulu. Sir Sidney, as a Bahamian he was knighted by the Queen.
  13. Why are you unhappy today?

    Bramble- so sorry to hear of your loss.  A part of your heart is  broken, keep those memories.
  14. 3G in Restaurants?

      MY heart goes out to all Health care workers. I hear the same from friends and colleagues worldwide. This should be repeated ad nauseum to anti-Vaxxers. ( Though  it seems as if many have had lobotomies).
  15. Regular job as a side hustle

    Ah, the language that divides us!
