  1. I'd like to share my story about my trip to Munich

    WWOOF is volunteer, you do not get paid.  
  2. Brexit: The fallout

      Thanks.  RF does not scare me, though.  Just would be interested in working out what I would need to do (apart from the easy B1 and citizenship test).  
  3. Brexit: The fallout

    Do I really have to go through the process and get a case worker to find out what the financial requriements are? 
  4. Brexit: The fallout

      Exactly.  But it would be good to have back up on this.  What are the requirements?
  5. Brexit / Applying for German citizenship

      Yes, you have to show you can support yourself (and any dependents) without resorting to state support.  It might be helpful if anyone knows exactly what the requirements are.   What if you are a housewife or husband for example?  
  6. what happens at a pap smear test

    The result is not even back for the PAP smear so a repeat in 6 months?  You cannot eyeball abnormal cells.  And of course sometimes there are things on the cervix which are visible but then 6 months would be silly.   Obviously a Frauenärzt would not do a colonolscopy.  Only refer you to a specialist and they would decide if it was appropriate. They can of course offer a home stool test but you are free to refuse.     This all sounds very strange.  I would not go there again.  And (edit) my husband gets physio on public health insurance and his problems sound a lot more trivial than yours.  Can you not get at least some without paying?                                    
  7.   This stolen from a parallel thread.   The ACE (seems to be a motorists’ club) interviews an expert, who has this to say:   Errichtung von Parkverbotszone wegen Baustelle oder Umzug – und das während urlaubsbedingter Abwesenheit. Was kann passieren?   Lempp: „Dauerparken ist zwar grundsätzlich erlaubt, jedoch muss man als Halter dafür Sorge tragen, dass das Fahrzeug jederzeit entfernt werden kann, wenn ein Haltverbotszeichen aufgestellt wird, beispielsweise wegen Bauarbeiten, einer Veranstaltung oder um einen Stellplatz für einen Umzugswagen zur Verfügung zu stellen. Die Halterpflicht gilt selbst bei krankheits- oder urlaubsbedingter Abwesenheit, so dass unter Umständen die Fahrzeugschlüssel einer Vertrauensperson überlassen werden müssen, die sich um das Fahrzeug kümmert. Für die Zulässigkeit des Abschleppens in solchen Fällen kommt es vor allem auf die Zeitspanne zwischen dem Aufstellen des Verbotszeichens und dem Abschleppen des zunächst korrekt geparkten Fahrzeugs an. Die von den Verwaltungsgerichten insoweit vorgeschriebenen Fristen variieren zwischen 4 Tagen und 48 Stunden“.   Basically, you’re responsible for making sure your car can be removed from the street, even if you’re not there. But there has to be some advance warning, generally 2-4 days.
  8. Brexit: The fallout

    Have not got anything from my Landkreis yet.  What would suit me would be I could apply for German Citizenship before 29 March , and then be allowed time to brush up my knowledge German and Citizenship test-wise (which would not take that long) but also to improve my finances (which would take a lot longer).  I am reliant on my husband for most income and all of health insurance, and he is not German.  Any chance?!
  9. Hmm.  I reckon this could easily get slapped back by the courts.   There are plenty of people here who have returned who have done far worse stuff.  Javid is obviously doing something he knows there is a lot of support for.  I mean, she did not make blood thirsty videos and show herself armed and recruit other girls.  She played happy families with her hunky Dutch fighter husband which was possibly for her, at the beginning, all very exciting compared to  the dull life as a diligent well behaved daughter at school in Bethnal Green.  With no access to boys.  A few heads in bins.  Whatever.     Javid is doing the classic Theresa May move here.  Knows it will probably fail, but thinks it he will gain popular support for trying.
  10. From what I have read, she is automatically a Bangladeshi citizen.  Though she would have to apply for a passport.
  11. First Ever German Dentist Appointment

    Kieferchirurg.  Our dentist always refers for difficult stuff like wisdom extractions, etc.
  12. What's got you flummoxed today?

    Mmm.  Just wonder if  he was doing it on purpose so he would not be easy to be understood.  Because he  found it amusing or whatever.
  13.   Deprogrammed?   Is there a UK law about this?    What do you mean "returned" to prison?  Obviously she enrages people, but these outcomes are just deranged fantasy.                  
  14. Getting a birth certifcate is straightforward   If you can remember your exam board and dates maybe    
  15. FlyBMI flights - refund from Deutsche Bank?

    Here is link to article with some explanations and advice from the earlier Germania insolvency and chance of getting your money back when you have paid by credit card.  It also has links to the Postbank (and other banks') reclaim forms.  Postbank (and the others) seem to put up some resistance to the process.   In particular Postbankto say they have a tiny time frame in which you can claim.  I guess for this reason you should asap fill out the form and send it off and hope for the best.  Situation different here than in the UK when paying by credit card.
