  1. Of gardening, neighbours and large trees

    I would keep it off the wall... it will retain the damp and destroy the facade if you leave it... but let it cover the rotten wooden fence.   Oh how i miss my Munich neighbours  ... not ... and their sichtschutz and their overbearing interest in what goes on in other people s gardens. 
  2. The Vent - NO CHAT!!!

    Oh really ?
  3. TELL ME SOMETHING GOOD!

    The way this panned out was that they dilly dallied months over payment. In fact we were down for two engagements... by the time they stumped up they had forgotten we only played one of them. So not only did the restaurant get paid, there was more to spare.   We will not be falling for it again next year, however. They can employ the cacophonous local boys and keep the money in the family...
  4. The War in Ukraine

    Red button.
  5. The War in Ukraine

    Forgive my pedantry but patria derives from pater, i.e. father. Translation very tricky.
  6. What are you cooking today?

    Nothing more revolting than sugar in bread. And in salad dressing. And it is becoming increasingly difficult to find without. .  The already obese masses are being conditioned to need sugar in all their food. Grrr...
  7. What are you cooking today?

    So what was in the stuffing ? 
  8. Three-word story

    going too far
  9. Food outlet - catastrophe

      ... good for France too.
  10. What's got you flummoxed today?

      John, i dunno how old you are but here s some flummoxing newz for the boyz... it all seems to hot up for you men in your late 60s and early 70s... from observation and expérience that age group seems to be well randy. While they still can, maybe ?
  11. Frugal Meals - Recipes and Cost

    Schnittlauchbrot - thickly buttered (or cream cheese) brown bread smothered with chives. Salt. Black pepper.   Bread and butter. A forgotten delicacy - if you have good German bread and even better, proper butter (give me it with coarse sea-salt) - not that tasteless stuff from Aldi.
  12. Would this be a potential copyright issue (seems...maybe)?

      ... at your own risk.   I would not sacrifice my peace of mind for one item. Finger weg. You have other projects which will not worry at you in the wee small hours. You also know the world went mad a long time ago and absurdity roolz.
  13. Only in America

    Spot on there. Mysogyny ubiquitous. And the men don't actually see it. They are convinced they are not sexist.
  14. Only in America

    Most of them blokes, I am guessing...
