Requiem For A Bear

June 26/06 5:34 p.m.

Bear Bruno is dead, has been shot this morning in Bavaria. Well, they claim he has been a juvenile delinquent (should have been named "Billy the Kid" - and what happened to him, we all know). _ Fact is, that we are a country of "Dumkoffs" (an unvoluntary word- creation of one of my American friends,which really hits the spot,Dummkopf - jerk- and Dumpfbacke - fathead - combined),not beeing able to handle one poor ,in Europe almost extinct,creature,without beeing so triggerhappy.
Now the nation is split into bear lovers and bear haters,and the hunters,who have been wise enough to go into hiding, have been threatened with murder, so has been the Minister of Environment.- There should be a sign at our borders:

Might take the steam off our soccer team,if they do not make the finals.
So folks,more about FOOTBALL the next time!

There`s more than Soccer! (THIS IS A LINK -KLICK IT)

June 21/06 7:41 p.m.

Friends, there is more to life than soccer. Might be, that whole of Germany is happy,cheerful and buddy-buddy right now, wait till the whole shennagan is over, we will be back to our normal drab selves. And listening to the debate in the "Bundestag" today, we are in for not such good times. Where are all the promises, Merkel & Co. made before the elections?? The rich wont be harmed much, the poor are poor anyway, but its the people in the middle,like us, we are being skinned. And there is nothing we can do, except turning into Michael Kohlhaas, who had been drawing the asshole-card in the end anyway.

So,rather enjoy that great song "Moon River", sung by Audrey Hepburn in that charming movie BREAKFAST AT TIFFANY'S.

Is It In The Genes?

No goal yet, have a look at our Mega-Fan!


June 14/06 4:33 p.m.

....thats what we call the weather we are having right now here in Germany, hot and dry, nice, although thunderstorms are predicted for tonite. Another kind of "Hundstage" (dogdays - free translation) Landfrau had last weekend. Daughter No.2 parked her dog, mad Max, with us for the weekend. So right away our dog,Shaylor, started limping, turned out, some bug must have bitten his paw or he got something in from a plant. Anyway, had to take continious walks, since one slow and one megafast dog did not match,decided to take the bike with Max, encountered a neighbour with two hysteric dachshounds, on the leash,mind you, which intrigued Max into a kickstart towards the nuisance to show them manners, almost ended up in a tangle of one neighbour,2 dachshounds, 1 bike,Max and Landfrau. Quote daughter:I always get off the bike when we encounter other dogs. Quote Landfrau: Should have told me before. - Next mad Max decided to chase a rabbit, for a while he has not been seen anymore, came back fortunately without getting onto the mainroad. Quote daughter: You have to tell him before the walk "do not chase rabbits today"! Quote Landfrau: Should have told me before. Well, otherwise everything went o.k., actually Max is a nice doggie, a little unruly ,maybe? But it has been o.k. too, when he was picked up including his -ugh-smelly blanket Sunday nite. -

Latest soccer news, Spain beat Ukraine 4:0 - Ole'- Tonite we will be at war, Germany against Poland! And we are having a houseguest till Monday morning, the MEGASOCCER-FAN there is, our grandson (9). Landfrau hopes, that by this time she will have gone back the one dress size she has aquired after quitting smoking. There is always hope!!!

Soccer,Soccer,Soccer-Championships -....

June 02/06 4:15 p.m.

W M !!!! There is no escaping it. Hard to find an item, not connected. Bad thing is, you start playing along,without actually wanting it. Landfrau bought toiletpaper today, each sheet printed with a quiz-question. Since we have the ultimative soccer-fan, our youngest grandson (soon 9 ys.old) in our family,we have an obligation. He will stay with us for a few days in a couple of weeks, the quiz will keep him busy (too). We are in for hard times, ole'!
