  1. I have a a first direct account (HSBC) and I believe that is staying available, but the choice of savings accounts shrank dramatically a couple of years ago.
  2. Heart attack at the age of 41

    I have been Ketogenic for two years and lost 20kg in the first six months and have stayed that weight since. No calorie counting or anything, just eating fresh foods and the only carbs or sugar I eat are in vegetables. My partner eats the same and we have both recently had blood tests and our cholesterol levels are great.   I used to suffer from Heißhunger all the time so was obese. When I eat keto I only have two meals per day (16:8 fasting) which is easy as I am not hungry. When we are on holiday we usually eat normally as it is easier and within a day I am constantly hungry and snacking. So for us, Keto works great and we love the taste of the food. All that butter, olive oil, cheese and cream - yum!   as an aside, this is the first time I have agreed with balticus about anything!
  3. Heart attack at the age of 41

    But not always. Some people are unlucky in the genetic lottery, such as my former husband, his father, his brother and his nephews. All had high cholesterol despite diet, father had triple bypass age 42 (is now 83!), the rest are on statins to lower their cholesterol as diet alone could not make enough difference. My former husband has had six stents and is slim and fit - he had angina aged 38. It’s not always your ‘fault’ because of your diet.
  4. Oh, this just popped up in my general new posts feed, I didn’t realise it was Frankfurt. Mine was in Kempen in NRW but I imagine the letterboxes are being checked at all Finanzämter 
  5. I did, and it worked - I got my Bescheid today.
  6. How to advertise that I want to rent a parking spot

    Facebook group for the local area? There is almost certainly one.
  7. Unfortunately your sentence “At the time, I was unaware of the tenancy laws in Berlin and how it could impact my future” probably tells you all you need to know.
