  20. Hi TTers,    I had been moderately active in Hamburg since moving to Germany, but after moving to Schleswig-Holstein a couple years ago I really fell off the radar (mostly due to a new baby and too much work). That said, I was wondering if there are any other native English speakers (or others that speak English) in or around Elmshorn/Tornisch/Uetersen area. Just looking for anyone interested in hanging out (starting a stammtisch, playing tennis, doing a movie or game night now-and-again, etc.). We have a 2.5 year-old daughter, but we can plan things with/without kids accordingly.  Anyway, let me know if you're interested.    Mike
  21. Since the installation date, 2 technicians came and still no internet. And I'm also struggling to find out what they are doing wrong since no contact with them is working in english. I'm also new in Berlin, I still got no german language and no german speaking friends to help in this case.   I have applied for a Vodafone DSL connection on 13/OCT after asking in their chat (in english) all the questions I had. A few days later they scheduled the installation to 2/NOV.   Here is what happened so far: 13 / OCT - I wen't to Vodafone website and while checking for products I found a chat option. There I was able to ask some questions I had about their product and contract and all the contact was in english. So I went to and applied for a Vodafone DSL plan. A few days later I received the modem and was told that the connection date would be on 02 / NOV. 02 / NOV - The telecom technician comes, check the plugs and tell me that the connection is ok by displaying a big green "OK" in his gadget screen. He did not wait for me to test the internet before leaving and said I had to wait a few hours before providing the modem installation code in the url. After waiting for many hours, every time I provided the modem installation code, I got the same error message giving a "timeout". I then start my attempts to speak with Vodafone about my connection problem: I try to email, call the hotline, post on their forum but never getting an answer that could help fixing the problem. Also, most of the times they simply ask to call the hotline, where (believe or not) no attendant speaks any english at all (I swear, I called it more than 20 times).08 / NOV - I had to travel abroad and they suddenly call me in english, making an appointment for another Telekom technician visit on 15/OCT. They also tell me they are sending 50 Gb Vodafone Mobile Wifi device.14 / NOV - I get the Vodafone Mobile Wifi on post office, activate it at 1pm and start using it. 15 / NOV - I get the second Telekom technician visit and he sais something was repaired on the street, but I have to wait for another technician to completely fix the problem. The same day, at exactly 5 pm, the Vodafone Mobile Wifi Gadget starts flashing the green traffic light and stops the Internet. I have tested the SIM card connected directly to my phone, but it does not show an internet signal (I've also walked on the streets to check if the signal problem was not just in my area).16 / NOV - Vodafone calls me in german, but at least it was easy to set another technician visit for 17/NOV.17 / NOV - Telekom technician comes at 19 clock, the building bell rings, I open it for him. And then he disappears. I'm not sure if he did something or if he just gave up because it was late. But the modem installation code problem still persist. 18 / NOV - I get a SMS from Vodafone asking me to call the hotline and schedule a new appointment. I tried so many times, but still haven't reached any english speaking attendant (even basic english). With one of them I simply played the google translator saying the protocol number and asking to schedule the new appointment to any day and any time and send me via SMS (as they did before). The attendant kinda told me "ok" for that, but so far I got no appointment.   I'm not sure if I persist trying to solve this problem or if I completely give up. But even about giving up, I don't know what to do as there is no english contact available for anything!   Anyone facing the same problem with them that can give me a light? I'm completing 20 days since the installation happened and still no internet.

  23. Lynn Ruth Miller is the poster girl for growing old. She’s 84 years old and the only thing that frightens her is her own reflection. She’s feisty though and can tell some tales about dating octogenarians, what it’s like being the oldest stand up in the business (RIP Joan Rivers). Young people of the world, come and see your futureQueenie the senile stripper will entertain you with a collection of outrageous parodies guaranteed to put your underwear at risk. Enjoy comedy at its naked best in this 50 minute travesty of song and dance featuring Lynn Ruth Miller. This is musical comedy at its worst proving that even though your body parts drop to your ankles, they still can move with enough zest raise an eyebrow if nothing else Lynn Ruth Miller had been remodeling facts since she bloomed so to speak, 78 years ago. Once she began presenting her prevarications to an audience larger than her three dogs, she met with amazing success.She hit the headlines in Edinburgh in August 2005 when she jumped out of a cake (almost) and removed her clothes (not quite) on every stage that would have her. Her fame spread when she threw her underwear at the audience at the Carleton Hotel that same year. In 2006, she became a legend: a show stealer and scene blocker with enough teeth left to smile wrapping her eager fans in spandex and putting wigs on the bald heads in the group. In 2008, she taught the world that the older you are, the better you get.She was featured in The London Times and won Best of the Brighton Festival with this off-key cabaret show that glorifies even older age, reveling in the disasters it brings to the human form and the feminine mystique. In 2014 she won the TOA&ST award for best cabaret at The Edinburgh Festival , In 2015, she starred in the Bristol Burlesque Festival and in 2016 was featured May 14 in the London Burlesque Festival where they invited her back for ehir encore performance.What they are saying:Lynn Ruth Miller is a true original, a unique and vivacious artist - writer, raconteur, singer, burlesque performer, satirist and comic. She appeared several times at the late-night cabaret, the Midnight Carousel, and never failed to bring the house down. She is inspiration to younger and less energetic artists like me. ~ Mark Mc Innes Edinburgh 2006With the modesty of youth gone, she grapples life’s dilemmas head on, and with a song. Based on her own colorful experiences, her audience are taught self help cures for impotence, incontinence, and how to enjoy old age. ~ MusicalTheaterMatters, 2008.This show is an act of belated rebellion against the invisibility of older people, deriding the nursing-home mentality and celebrating the joys of Spandex and sparkle. Any stand-up, though providing her with this definite point of view, now plays second fiddle to the set-piece song-and- dance numbers. ~ Steve Bennett, Chortle, 2009★★★★★ AFTERPARTY ★★★★★ Bambule Nights - Raucous Karaoke GamesSingle and multi player games that you can sing, YES sing! A karaoke gaming adventure that will have you and your friends in stitches.
