I’m here in the northern germany refuge at the Moment, and the town names around here in the north make me giggle more than often. For example that firetruck on the image is from the “voluntary fire brigade” of the town of – literally(!) – “Lentil Stew” 🙂
So today they removed the part of the wall that’s going to be the new kitchen counter. There’s a super cool wood trading company only a short distance away, where I plan to purchase a solid slab of wood for the countertop.
(No text. Just beauty.)
The occasional photo of the lady of the house… 🙂
So the tree guys are doing their business around the new house. Felling the dead oaks professionally and thinning out everything, so the other trees can grow better and strong again. I could never have done this on my own and without their heavy equipment and special knowledge. These guys are cool, they work hard and they know what they’re doing.
For everyone like me who is too lazy or too busy to hit the gym regularly, here’s an interesting article on how to exercise at home.It’s a bodyweight-workout, no fuss and effective and it doesn’t require any equipment (thus “The Prisoner Workout”). I’m doing this at the moment and I hope i will keep it up.
I generally recommend that site: The Art of Manliness
– 1/2 cup coconut oil
– 10 drops eucalyptus oil
– 5 drops peppermint oil
Mix thoroughly and store in a tight container. Found here.
So it finally caught us. I don’t like winter… 🙁
I might be a little over-excited about what I’ve done lately, but this is some of the surrounding landscape of the Northern Germany Outpost (“NGO” 🙂 ). Beautiful, isn’t it?
Signed the contract yesterday! I finally bought a house in a very beautiful, rural and quiet area in northern germany. Now imagine how fed up I am with the big bad city, that I – a cocksure born and raised bavarian – am at least partially moving up to the north… 🙂
here in Munich today. Friggin’ hot and muggy.
Imagine living in a formerly free country and having to use TOR to access websites that cannot provide service in the EU anymore because of the GDPR. No, I don’t want to buy any drugs or guns. Examples:
… (and surely many, many more). Thanks, german-green-party Mr. Albrecht.
Yeah! Today is the the day! How happy we all are. Today the “European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)” comes into force… I have an opinion on this and I’ll just quote again here what I already wrote on my privacy page.
Edit: Here’s a great Article on the topic on “Tichys Einblick” (german language), a well respected german political blog. It says it all.
Tasty, easy and convenient – grubbed some of them just minutes ago. Available at your least distrusted supermarkets all over the country, or over here.
No, they don’t pay me for this.
Just wanted to tell the world I’m married for 48 hrs now and still happy with it! 🙂
My favorite fishing spot two weeks ago in early spring, 07:30 in the morning. Just wonderful.
Man! It’s so good to do do some garden work and have some time in the sunshine without freezing to death the very instant you step out of the door! We have 18 °C today! (And yes: That’s a beer 🙂 )
So we have a sudden return of Winter here in Bavaria. -8 °C in the morning. Man, I hate that.
Look at this beautifully restored Willys Jeep at the local gas station some time ago.
As I have the time at the moment, I’m finally able to play some Fallout 4 again. I already loved Fallout 3 and I love #4 just as much. Man, I’m almost neglecting myself… 🙂
I don’t care if it’s only 08:00 am here. I want dis. So badly. Now.
Since I’m not a native speaker and my days of english lessons in school have long been over, I’m doing it just plain wrong sooo often: Fu***ing Capital letters in english.
Perspective drawing trick. This is SO cool!
Had an offroad driver training on saturday, together with my best friend Thomas. It was my first time under “controlled conditions” with an experienced instructor who definitely knew what he was doing. I’d never have thought what little Juri is capable of. It was challenging, straining, educational and FUN.
“Red on dead, red on donor. Black on donor, black on metal”.
Additionally, I strongly recommend a power pack like this one for your garage. It is small, practical, affordable and easy to store. And it can really save your sorry ass when you’re in a hurry.
Merry Christmas… 🙂
Paid a visit to our local botanic garden to see their mushroom exhibition. Partially I got really hungry.
