  1. Fantasy Premier League 2021/22 (aka FPL)

    GW5 deadline is tonight. I keep changing my mind about who to captain.  Salah, Lukaku, or a Man City player?
  2. Landlord died,-was-nun--f187545.html   I googled in German, and the above confirms what Karin says about the Nachlassgericht.  However, they also say that if it is an emergency you can contact the utility companies directly.  I would think no hot water should constitute an emergency.
  3. Fantasy Premier League 2021/22 (aka FPL)

    You are too kind Chelski.  I am sure it can turn around very quickly but am very happy with my start.  I think I was more cautious this year, in the past I have always made some silly decisions early on and had to wildcard quite quickly. 
  4. Fantasy Premier League 2021/22 (aka FPL)

    I didn't expect that.  I was reasonably pleased with my team in GW1 but was hit by not having Bruno.  GW2 has given me my biggest ever green arrow, I went up approx 1,000,000 places! This is of course because it is very close, so a few points means a big difference in rank.  Having looked at Chelski's previous rankings, I don't think I'll be top for long but will enjoy it while I can.

    As an Evertonian, I am also looking at bringing Lukaku in but want to do it without taking any hits and can't decide who to get rid of.  I didn't want him in from the start as I knew he wouldn't play in GW1.

    I have joined.  I have been doing FPL for a couple of years.  Stuffington United is the team name. Thanks!   Donnys Dreamers, are you from Donny?  My husband too, or at least from Finningley.  
  7. Google Street View

    If I look at the street where we used to live in Munich, you can still see that our furniture is on the balcony and my hanging flower pots too.  We left in 2012!  
  8. Exchanging UK license

    I exchanged mine in 2013 and I have the date that I got the new licence on the front (4a), same as warsteiner, but on the back (10) it looks like the date I first registered in Germany, March 2000.  I passed my UK test in 1983 and that is not mentioned anywhere.   Edit: I am not sure I exchanged in 2013 as I know I did it in Munich and I left Munich in 2012, so not sure why there is the 2013 date for 4a.
  9. The GU series has a lot of books on nutrition.  My local library is full of them.  There is one called 'Die richtige Ernährung bei...'  which looks like it might cover what you are interested in.
  10. Cholesterol values - question for the Doctors

    The calculated max HR is not very reliable.  Ideally you would go to a doctor who can measure it in a safe situation.  I think there are sports doctors that do this - you could also then discuss your training with them and ask advice on what zones you should be training in.  Generally HIT training should only be once or twice a week and all other cardio training should be 'easy'.   If you are using the same gadget to measure your heart rate, then a rise of more than 10 bpm on your resting heart rate is quite significant.  I have only had that when I was seriously stressed and my husband had it when he had the flu and didn't rest enough - it then took several weeks for his heart rate to come back down.

  12. Robot lawnmower

    We also have a tractor mower as our plot is over 5000 sq. metres.  It mulches too, so we don't have to put the grass on the compost.  I don't think our garden would be suited to a robot mower as it has quite a few hilly bits and is divided into separate areas.  As for the noise, the man who sold us the house says it used to take him 5 hours to mow the lawns.  When we told him that it took us around an hour with the tractor mower I think he sorely regretted not having bought one.  Also, I don't think it is that much noisier than a regular mower but one hour of the tractor is better than 5 of a normal mower.  We also have a trailer that attaches, which is helpful for transporting stuff around the garden and this year we bought an attachment that sweeps up and collects the leaves.  We have a lot of trees in our garden, plus our neighbours have trees overhanging our garden.  I used to not see my husband in Autumn as he would spend all his time in the garden collecting leaves.  This year we got it done in a couple of evenings.  Plus it is fun, even though we have had it for 8 years now.
