The books are as follows: Black and Blue Blood Hunt Exit Music Fleshmarket Close Hide and Seek Knots & Crosses Let it Bleed Mortal Causes Rather be the devil Resurection men Saints of the Shadow Bible Set in Darkness Standing in Another Man's Grave Strip Jack The Beat Goes On(short stories) The Black Book The Complaints The Falls The Impossible Dead The Naming of the Dead Tooth & Nail Witch Hunt Even dogs in the wild If you're interested, let me know and make me an offer and we can meet somewhere in Frankfurt.

  3. Books to give away

    Mission accomplished. Got to the theatre, the bookcase was almost empty. So loaded it up. Frankfurters enjoy.
  4. Books to give away

    I have no idea where there might be a prison and as for hospitals, I live in a platt speaking area, if you get my drift.   Anyway, thank you all for your suggestions.
  5. Books to give away

    I have a load of English books to get rid of and I can't decide how to do it.  I can't take them to the street bookcase in Merianplatz, Frankfurt, where I normally go, because there will not be enough room.  I asked the English theatre if I could leave them with them and they can stock up the bookcase outside their door. They said yes but am worried they might find that too much.  I'm going to Frankfurt on Tuesday and thought of posting, on TT, that I'll be at street X at a certain time but what if it's raining or nobody shows up.  My time in DE is getting short and I have to empty the house.  Any other ideas?
  6. Even after all these years, I still...

    I remember in Greece, 10 years ago, where they couldn't be bothered with 1, 2, 5 cent pieces.  They do now.
  7. Lufthansa Strike

    I am so surprised that it's the cabin crew that are on strike.  I know a couple of Lufthansa stewards (I hope this is PC).  Every time i speak with them they are either 10 days off or going on holiday. I'll have to ask them what the hell else they want.
  8. Even after all these years, I still...

    Have you ever said Hallo to them?    On topic, after all these years I can't get used to the cashiers in supermarkets zipping ones purchases through and then wait ten minutes while the customer brings out the wallet, rifles through to find the right note then flipping through the change pocket to find the 20, 10, 5, 2 and 1 cent coins.
  9. Yes, I believe the young man I was talking to was making it all up when I asked "Why not". Anyway, I came across a website last night that I entered my details about my move and they sent me the names of five moving companies to contact and today I had three of them calling me.  One of them even quoted me less than the price of me hiring a van and moving myself.
  10. I want to hire a 7.5T truck to drive to Britain.  I'm having problems finding a company that allows their lorries to be driven there.  Today Hertz told me it's because there are regulations on British roads that German trucks don't meet. Is that possible?  I haven't tried Buchbinder or Europcar yet but I have a horrible suspition that it will be the same.  If you know of any companies that do, I'd be grateful.
  11. Or if you're from the wrong side of the tracks gamiolla.
  12. Driving a hybrid

    From what I understand, a hybrid runs on fuel and electricity. What does that mean in regards to driving? I’ve just rented one that I didn’t ask for. I got in, turned the ignition key and thought nothing happened then off and on again a couple of times then by chance I put it in gear and shock, it moved. Is there anything else I should know about driving a hybrid? Thanks.
  13. Sorry but as the OP, I'd like proof, photos, video etc. Παρακαλω.
  14. Have I skipped to a different thread?
  15. North Sea ferries

    I always use https://www.dfds.com/en Dunkirk to Dover.  It's a few km on from Ostend. Good prices and if you're late or early you can get on one ferry earlier or later at no extra charge.  Also Ostend/Dover was three hours as opposed to the two on this journey.
