  1. I woke up blind in one eye this morning

    Going back to the beginning of this thread, this has been dragging on for nearly 3 years. John is beratungsresistent. Not happy. 
  2. US Presidential Election Fallout

      Doesn't Trump think that soldiers lost in battle are losers and suckers?  It makes me wonder why there are people like her who nevertheless still adore him so much. 
  3. Coronavirus

    Hart aber Fair will be critically discussing the vaccination programme in Germany this evening on ARD at 21:45 hrs: ttps://  
  4. Coronavirus

      The same here. My daughter and grown-up granddaughter are visiting me Christmas Eve - only the three of us. Now suddenly my granddaughter has also been invited to spend Christmas Eve with her boyfriend's family, so she'll be joining them after she leaves here. Originally she was invited to visit them on Christmas day, but now they have planned to visit other relatives on Christmas day and Boxing day.

  6. Why are you happy today?

      @john g. Whatever the case, I hope all goes well with your residence status whether in Greece and/or Germany. Good luck. And keep us posted. 
  7. Why are you happy today?

        John's move could complicate matters depending on the thoroughness of the famous German bureacracy. This is providing useful information to think about, not fearmongering, by the way.   
  8. Why are you happy today?

      I have never fearmongered on this site, mostly only offered advice. It's better to be on the safe side than sorry. 
  9. Why are you happy today?

      Not actually being here in person might be a problem, though. It would worry me. 
  10. Why are you happy today?

      But didn't you mention that you are registered in Germany? You have an address here? Why can't you stay there until you get things sorted out?   Actually, I'm quite puzzled that you didn't apply for German or rather dual citizenship when Brexit loomed on the horizon. I'm only a few years older than you but life experience of 74 years in two countries (which just before I was born were enemies) taught me how very quickly laws and situations can change, so I went for dual citizenship as soon as I heard about the referundum. Sorry, John, but all your diddling around until the very last minute is just plain irresponsible. The same applies to your eye problem. What does Nicole say?  
  11. Why are you happy today?

      I don't really understand the problem, either. Why not keep the house as a holiday home if selling it is problematic at the moment? Bringing the dogs shouldn't be a problem. I think only two are left. 
  12. Why are you happy today?

      This is all so wishy-washy. The point is, it is and always has been a legal requirement to register in Germany. Stop confusing people. 
  13. Why are you happy today?

      I've seen you claim this several times. What about the German Meldegesetz?   Wer in Deutschland lebt, muss dort gemeldet sein (allgemeine Meldepflicht): Jede in Deutschland lebende Person ist verpflichtet, sich bei der für ihren Wohnort zuständigen Meldebehörde innerhalb von zwei Wochen nach Einzug in die Wohnung anzumelden (§ 17 Abs. 1 BMG). Ein Verstoß hiergegen ist eine Ordnungswidrigkeit und führt zu einer Geldbuße. Anyone living in Germany must be registered there (general obligation to register): Every person living in Germany is obliged to register with the registration office responsible for their place of residence within two weeks of moving into their home (Section 17 (1) BMG). A violation of this is an administrative offence and leads to a fine.
  14. Why this forum speaks English and not German

    I don't just correct my students, I also correct foreigners asking questions in the street. I think Iit's kinder to correct them, for which most seem to be appreciative, as I see it as a kind of German lesson.    This is just another one of those TT German bashing threads. 
  15. Why this forum speaks English and not German

      Rubbish. They use subtitles a lot even with Germans speaking dialect on TV.
