    "love and kisses" ...

    In Morse code, 73 is a palindrome (--••• •••--) and used to express "love and kisses" (later reduced to the more formal "best regards").

    The Blues Image song "Ride Captain Ride" (1970) begins with "73 men sailed out on the San Francisco Bay":
    Na ja.

    Dies hatte ich auch schon mal gehört aber noch nie gesehen:
    Focus - Hocus Pocus Live '73 .

    Nicht den Bingo-Reim vergessen, Emil!
    73 - Crutch with a flea

    Die Bundesstraße 73 (B 73) führt von Cuxhaven nach Hamburg. Sie hieß früher Reichsstraße 73 und wurde bereits 1932 eingerichtet. In Hamburg wiederum gibt es eine Straße namens "Schulterblatt" und daselbst das Kulturhaus III & 70.

    In TESO #72 ging es bedenklich oft um Krankheiten. Vf hat sogar eine ganze Kur in den Wochen absolviert, die wir gebraucht haben, um diesen thread zu füllen. Da ist es wohl an der Zeit, sich eines dieser durchnumerierten Gedichte zu Gemüte zu führen (Es ist ja auch irgendwie herbstlich.):

    Sonnet 73
    That time of year thou mayst in me behold
    When yellow leaves, or none, or few, do hang
    Upon those boughs which shake against the cold,
    Bare ruin'd choirs, where late the sweet birds sang.
    In me thou seest the twilight of such day
    As after sunset fadeth in the west,
    Which by and by black night doth take away,
    Death's second self, that seals up all in rest.
    In me thou see'st the glowing of such fire
    That on the ashes of his youth doth lie,
    As the death-bed whereon it must expire
    Consumed with that which it was nourish'd by.
    This thou perceivest, which makes thy love more strong,
    To love that well which thou must leave ere long.
    –William Shakespeare

    Good day people, a very happy Monday to one and all. *sigh* A very late shift this week, I'll probably be stuck here till somewhere between 8:30 and 9:30 this evening. :(

    Thank you for the new home Emil. :)

    Yet another culinary debut...

    Moin, mykl!

    Das erinnert mich wieder an die Regel: Mit Essen spielt man nicht!

    edit: I'll be back in two hours or so.

    Hi Emil and mykl!

    Thanks for the new home, Emil! Very nice! :-)

    Yesterday, I saw (and heard) the first Kraniche, too! I didn't count them, though...

    And Carly, I really hope Kimmy has come home...
    #3Authordragonfly70 (672923) 11 Oct 10, 15:10
    Hi Emil and Libby *waves* Kimmy's gone ?? Oh! I'm sure he's just having a little bit of an adventure in the last of the summers sun.
    #4Authormykl (442296) 11 Oct 10, 15:24
    Hallo Libelle!
    Vor zwei Stunden gab es nochmal so 150 Stück, und der Tag ist noch nicht vorbei ...
    #5AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 11 Oct 10, 16:36
    Hi, All - Still NO sign of Kimmmy - am worried sick, have walked through half the village, calling shaking keys (her signal), asking people..nada. Ja Emil, ein Paar Mal über Nacht weg, ABER sie saß morgens bereits auf die Haustürtreppe. Last saw her yesterday morning when she went out after breakfast - and she usually comes back around 3 p.m. for lunch, a catnap, then off again till about 6 p.m., repeat process, back when it's time for Mommy to go night-night.

    Lucky you!!! I no longer live in the Krannich flight path.
    #6AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 11 Oct 10, 19:15
    Hi Carly, it's still not a long time for a cat to be away though. I know it seems like a long time at the moment, but 36 hours still gives cause for optimism.
    #7Authormykl (442296) 11 Oct 10, 19:24
    Thanks, mykl - I'm trying to still be hopeful, but she always showed up for breakfast those couple of times when she didn't come in at night...and now she hasn't had any food since Saturday morning...I don't really think she fell prey to those catnappers, because she's pure black, and almost invisible at night. Will naturally go out again tomorrow looking for her.
    #8AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 11 Oct 10, 22:31
    Hi, All! Still no sign of Kimmy-cat :-(((
    #9AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Oct 10, 09:43
    Sorry to hear that, Carly! But still this does not necessarily mean she's dead or injured. When I was a child , one of our cats disappeared - and months later, when we had already given up all hope, I met him in the neighborhood and found out that he had gone to live with another family... I suppose he had visited them one day, pretended to be a poor little, homeless, hungry cat, had been fed and then decided to stay.

    I keep my fingers crossed for you and Kimmy.
    #10AuthorGaleazzo (259943) 12 Oct 10, 09:59
    Thanks, Galeazzo - That's the worst part - not knowing, and especially where we've had about 200 cats go missing over the weekends here in this region. I still don't want to NOT hope, but she's always come home. Did your kitty stay with the other family?? How traumatic that must have been. Cally (had her 17 years, Kimmy's predecessor) went missing for 12 days. My son and his friend came running home all excited, said they had found her up in the quarry (about 6 kms away). Couldn't believe it, but we all got into car and sure enough, there she was.
    You just never know what cats are up to...
    #11AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Oct 10, 10:23
    Yes, he came, said hello to me and then went back to his new family and stayed with them. Maybe he did not like our new house (we had moved house shortly before he left), or he had a serious quarrel with our other cat (older than he and longer in our family)...
    #12AuthorGaleazzo (259943) 12 Oct 10, 10:47
    Wenn ich so aus dem Fenster sehe, sollte ihr doch allmählich klar werden, dass
    sie es zuhause am besten hat. Bei Dir muss es nachts doch schon frieren, Carly!
    #13AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 12 Oct 10, 11:11
    Galeazzo, Yeah, cats do not take well to change, but still!! Kimmy's very leary of strangers, though.

    Hi, Emil! Jaaaaa, habe gestern morgen bereits Eis kratzen müssen. 

    So, Tierheim/Tierärzte informiert, Anzeige für Samstag und nächsten Mittwoch geschaltet, für morgen war es schon zu spät. Will bald bei ein Nachbar fragen, ob sie evtl. in seiner Garage geschlüpft sein könnte. Oder im Lastwagen, der dort abgestellt ist.

    Jetzt muß ich versuchen, mich auf eine Übersetzung zu konzentrieren.
    #14AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Oct 10, 11:49
    Good day people, a very happy Tuesday to one and all. I'm cat sitting this and next week too. *chuckle* Well, I would be if I had a cat. 'My' cat went out in the sun yesterday morning and wasn't back yesterday evening or this morning. *whispers* It's a secret cat conspiracy. :)
    #15Authormykl (442296) 12 Oct 10, 12:48
    Hallo, mykl!

    Cat sitting hat auch viel mit Aussitzen zu tun.
    Habe ich das richtig verstanden?
    #16AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 12 Oct 10, 14:00
    Update!!! Kimmy is locked in the neighbor's house across the street - women owns two (abandoned) houses here in the street, is in a home for the elderly. Her son, who lives in the village doesn't have keys. She sent a Russian/Polish? aid over with a bundle of keys, none of which fit - and the BITCH...pardon my language, said: ich nix kann helfen - tut mir leid, aber Wochenende jemand komme. About hit the roof/blew my top...called elderly woman - Russian's getting sent back with another bundle of keys, and if they don't fit, then I can have a Schlüsseldienst. Pooooor baby, but at least she can hear me (us, young girl downstairs is with me) - and Kimmy's responding.
    #17AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Oct 10, 14:31
    Hi Carly, has the house got windows *looks innocently at pile of cobble stones*
    #18Authormykl (442296) 12 Oct 10, 14:32
    Yes, it does, mykl -and I mentioned to the girl downstairs (Kimmy's catsitter) that I have a GOOD MIND to break the window! The BI*** heard her, can someone react so inhumanly???

    edit: back behind the house, there's all kinds of handy STEEL junk lying around just waiting to be used!!!
    #19AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Oct 10, 14:35
    Glad to hear you found her! But I wonder how she got in there in the first place, if the house is abandoned and locked?
    #20AuthorGaleazzo (259943) 12 Oct 10, 14:37
    Na, wie schön! Ein Lebenszeichen!
    Hoffentlich kann die B* mit dem zweiten Bund aufschließen.
    Sei vorsichtig mit dem Schlüsseldienst. Manche sollen ja so extrem teuer sein und gleich die Schlösser aufbohren ohne es erst mit dem Dietrich zu versuchen.
    #21AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 12 Oct 10, 14:39
    Galeazzo, Every now and then, people show up on the weekend - this weekend past, I saw lights on in the living room - AND I've seen Kimmy on their balcony, occassionaly - their back yard heads straight out into the mice-hunting grounds.
    #22AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Oct 10, 14:39

    Hi Galeazzo and Emil *waves*

    I've locked myself out twice now. The first time cost 160 euronics *grrrr* the second time I had to repair the door frame. (I decided that beaking in with my shoulder was cheaper than phoning the robbin' key service) I now keep a spare 'hideen' in the immediate area. :)

    Ohhh, nice one, Emil :-)) And guess who's insisted on going back out for a strut?? Hope she's learned her lesson, and does NOT stray into anyone's house! I recall seeing lights on there Sunday evening at around 8 p.m....wonder whether Kimmy had already "taken up residence"?? And thought I heard her meowing over the past two days, but convinced myself I was imagining things.
    #33AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Oct 10, 17:12
    Guten Morgen!

    Oh, schön das Kimmy wieder da ist!
    Musste heute auch schon nach unseren inzwischen drei Mietzen sehen.
    Die können zwar nicht abhauen, weil sie nicht raus können, aber eine im Flur stehende Transportbox kann einem der Kater doch ganz schön aufs Gemüt drücken. Wir dachten schon er sei krank. War aber wohl nur Angst, wieder in die Kiste (und damit zum Arzt) zu müssen...
    #34AuthorMafi (236280) 13 Oct 10, 09:57

    Schade, die Sonnentage sind wohl vorbei.
    #35AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 13 Oct 10, 10:24

    Hi, All! Passed on your good wishes to Kimmy. If cats could speak, she would have clearly stated yesterday, just how happy she is to be back home. She'd first snuggle in my arms like a baby, purring away, to run off to grab a bite of catfood, back for a snuggle, then off to tell her "Katzenbaum" hello :-))

    Sun just burst through the clouds! Is it too much to hope for that it might stick around for awhile? Am off to my Mommy's birthday over the weekend, and don't really fancy snow :-))
    #38AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 13 Oct 10, 14:09

    #44AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 14 Oct 10, 14:26
    Moin! Habe eine halbe Frühjahrsputz hinter mir :-)) Kommt noch hinzu, daß ich soooooooooooooooo verärgert bin, daß ich mein Gemütszustand Euch nicht antun wollte...aber was soll's. Habe damit angefangen. Seit über einem Jahr warte ich darauf, daß es bei Unwettern NICHT im Wohnzimmer hineinregenet/schneit. Ebenfalls warte ich darauf, daß die Duschkabine nicht mehr ausläuft - passiert ist rein garnichts. Neulich ist doch deren Satanlage kaputt gegangen, ich habe den Monteur geholt, Rechnung an Mieter, Wochen lang NICHTS gehört, als sie auf einmal wieder Kommentarlos bei mir im Briefkasten lag. Tja, da ging ich davon aus, daß sie bezahlt wurde. Gestern zufällig auf deren Rasenmäher-Männchen gestoßen - puste Kuchen. Zitat der Frau des Mieters: Wer die Musik bestellt, muß auch zahlen. Ich bin soooooo BÖSE. Und heute sollte um 13:00 Rasenmäher-Männchen vorbeischauen, bis jetzt auch noch nichts...
    #45AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 14 Oct 10, 14:34
    Hallo Carly!
    Ach, das hört sich ja wieder super an! Du meinst aber wohl den Vermieter bzw. seine Frau, nicht wahr?
    Zitat der Frau des Mieters: Wer die Musik bestellt, muß auch zahlen.
    Ich bin kein Mietrechtsexperte, aber ganz so plump stimmt das sicher nicht.
    Es hängt sicher viel von der Art des Schadens ab und davon, wie intensiv und wie oft der Vermieter auf den Schaden hingewiesen wurde. Wenn z.B. im Winter die Heizung ausfällt und Du weisst, dass der Vermieter die nächsten vier Wochen auf Mallorca Urlaub macht, kein Hausverwalter oder sonstiger Vertreter benannt worden ist, musst Du den Wartungsdienst rufen können, ohne hinterher auf den Kosten sitzen zu bleiben.
    Bei weniger lebenswichtigen Dingen, kann das anders aussehen.
    Im Umgang mit Deinem Vermieter scheint mir Schriftverkehr angebracht, damit die Beweislage klar ist (gesetzte Fristen, angedrohte Mietminderung usw.).
    Glücklicherweise habe ich so etwas noch nie machen müssen. Es gibt aber sicher fachkundigere Beratung beim Mieterverein.
    #46AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 14 Oct 10, 15:05
    Ja, ich meinte die Vermieterin :-)) Das mit dem Duschkabine/Schnee/Regen habe ich schon X-Mal gesagt - und da nie etwas passiert ist, habe ich "einfach" deren Sat-Anlage nach dem irren Sturm reparieren lassen, weil ich KEIN Bock darauf hatte, über Monaten hinweg, kein Empfang zu haben. Ich schaue zwar nicht viel Fernsehen, aber Abends mein Rücken am Heizkissen legen tut einfach gut :-)) Habe gestern Rasenmäher-M auch gesagt, daß ich eigentlich schon längst die Miete hätte kürzen können, als Antwort auf sein "Mit Vermieter muß man in Ruhe reden" (was ich "tausend Mal" erfolglos gemacht habe).

    Bin Rechtschutzversichert, und werde mein Anwalt konsultieren.

    #47AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 14 Oct 10, 15:16
    Tja, der Typ ist natürlich NICHT erschienen grrrrrr - und arg kalt isses geworden. Morgen bin ich viel unterwegs - da wird er bestimmt auftauchen.
    #48AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 14 Oct 10, 23:15
    Moin Carly.

    Nicht SAGEN, sondern schreiben. Angemessene Frist (als Faustregel: 14 Tage) setzen für die Behebung des Schadens. Wenn sich dann ncihts tut wegen der undichten Duschwanne etc., hast du andere Möglichkeiten.
    #49AuthorIgelin DE (467049) 15 Oct 10, 07:31
    Good morning people, a very happy Friday to one and all. Carly, it's time to stop playing Mr(s) nice guy/gal and start playing at Mr(s) nasty.

    Welcome back, easy! Popped in briefly yesterday while still at my mother's and your nick was "leicht" - now it's back to original easy...was that intentional, or an automatic "giggle translate" :-)) ??

    Hi Carly, it's been foggy here for the past couple of mornings too, now it's just fleißigly raining.
    #80Authormykl (442296) 19 Oct 10, 12:09
    Hi, mykl! Well, snow's been forecasted for Thursday, and I still have summer tires on - and my winter ones were on till JUNE!! Must be pretty nasty outside, as Kimmy used her catbox for the first time in months :-))
    #81AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 19 Oct 10, 12:17
    *laughs* Even my little bit of NRW has a snow warning for Wednesday night, well, a 25% chance of snow. The odds are probably a bit worse up in t'mountains.

    Good morning people, a very happy Wednesday to one and all. We've got what we call in yorkshire a 'lazy' wind. It's bitter cold and it's too lazy to go around you so it cuts through you. *brrrrrrrr*
    #87Authormykl (442296) 20 Oct 10, 06:17
    Moin allerseits!
    "lazy wind" - da muss man schon einen besonderen Sinn für Humor haben, um auf so eine Bezeichnung zu kommen!
    (Das Radio sagt gerade: "Aber der Wind bleibt uns erhalten.")
    #88AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 20 Oct 10, 10:51
    Moin Emil, yorkshire humour is as black as the coal miners faces that (used to) work there. :)

    Hi, All! Well, NO SNOW, which is good news - poured rain for about an hour and now the sun's come out in all its glory. Not that it's warming anything up, but still :-))

    Wari, Next thing you know, he'll be wanting to help Mommy type :-))
    #91AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 20 Oct 10, 13:41
    Message from Warison:

    Whatever that means...
    #92AuthorWaringham (384862) 20 Oct 10, 15:19
    LOL! You should know, Wari - your his Mommy, and up to a certain age, about the only person who really understands just what Warison is saying :-)) OK, but typing, welllll that's an entirely different matter. From the looks of it, he's got the "10 finger" system down pat :-)
    #93AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 20 Oct 10, 15:59
    Also 'joi' und 'ponk' finde ich schon sehr verständlich!
    #94AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 20 Oct 10, 18:37
    Good morning!
    Just a short "hello", before Warison wakes up again and demands to be fed immediately 
    We've started eating mashed carrots, pumpkin and potatoes 2 weeks ago and it isn't as messy as I thought. He actually likes it, though there are some difficulties for him to move his mouth in a way to actually keep everything in. But he opens the mouth when the spoon comes nearer and so I suppose he likes it. I'm doing some cooking myself, with some "Gläschen" in between. Depends on how I feel about it. Today, it's gonna be selfmade pumpkin mash.. It's really tasty, even without any salt or spices..

    Okay, he's waking up and staring to whine, so I'll go up..
    Hearing my master's voice

    PS: I hope you are still interested in baby stories..There's not much else I could tell at the moment :))
    #95AuthorWaringham (384862) 21 Oct 10, 10:33
    Hi, Wari!! YESSSSS, very much so (interested in baby stories:-)) It gets messy when you let him first try to feed himself, as in: giving him a spoon to hold :-))
    #96AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 21 Oct 10, 10:37
    G'day people, a very happy Thursday to one and all. Too busy for anything but a quick hello today. Glad to read that Warison is getting the hang of Leoland.

    Hi, All - Fog-free, sunny, cold here, too...Though my inner "me" is raging seething hot-fire - us "smokers" now have the "priviledge" of funding intensive-energy user's subsidies. My goodness, we already funded the "Anti-Terrorpaket" - it's HIGH TIME another group has it's turn!! And then to hear such sentences as "...kommen den intensive Energie-Nutzer entgegen, und als AUSGLEICH dafür, wird der Tabaksteuer erhöht." Not to mention that the so-called "Ökosteuer" was invented to replace the funds stolen from our "Rentenkasse"
    #126AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 25 Oct 10, 12:10

    LOL, yes it is, mykl - If the govt. wishes to financially relieve industries "um Arbeitsplätze zu sichern" - OK - but then, in a "democracy" everyone should have the priviledge of cotnributing their money to said "cause"...they could start picking on the "Trinker" :-))
    #128AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 25 Oct 10, 13:02
    Oh, isn’t it nice to get angry
    Isn’t it fun to be mad
    We shout and we scream
    And let off lots of steam
    We’d rather be angry than glad

    Oh, isn’t it nice to get angry
    To rant till we’re red in the face
    We jump and we rage
    Like an actor onstage
    From humour there’s rather no trace

    Oh, isn’t it nice to get angry
    The blood pressure soaring aloft
    The heart rate doth rise
    And tears run from eyes
    Being angry is not for the soft

    Oh, isn’t it nice to get angry
    Now, what was the reason again??
    The same as before
    Nothing less, nothing more
    Just to give anger its reign

    Carly, I 'blow my top' about 30 times a day, but then it's over and done with in a couple of minutes. If you were to ask me a few hours later as to why i'd gotten angry I probably wouldn't be able to tell you.
    #133Authormykl (442296) 25 Oct 10, 15:18
    ;-)) Well, I'm not usually one to blow my top, but the govt. has contributed greatly to increasing my blood pressure from about 90/60 to 120/60 over the past couple of weeks - OHHHH, I KNOW they want to not only relieve the industry, but my low blood pressure, too :-)

    #140AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 26 Oct 10, 13:01
    Moin, All!

    Emil, was mich fast noch MEHR aufgeregt hat, ist die Aussage "...als AUSGLEICH dafür..." - eigentlich bekommt man ein Ausgleich, wenn man SELBST etwas hergegeben hat. Tja, und die Tatsache, daß wir bereits dafür auserwählt wurden, die Anti-Terror-Paket zu bezahlen...und sich selbst die "Diäten" zu erhöhen, ist KEIN Beitrag leisten :-)) Sun's shining, I've ranted and raved enough for today. Perhaps "us smokers" should insist on the industries providing us with a job, as "Ausgleich" that we're paying their Ökostromsteuer.
    #141AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 26 Oct 10, 13:09

    Ja, Emil - und ihre "Diät = Maßhalten" - sie schmiessen die Arbeit nieder, und werden weiterhin für nichts tun ihr VOLLES "Entschädigung" auf X-Monate weiter bezahlt. Sie haben wohl noch nie davon gehört, daß Ottonormalo muß sogar beim betriebsbedingte Kündigung auf Wiedereinstellung klagen, und beim hinschmeisen eine Sperre für mindestens 6 Montae erhält. Ach neeee, ich will mich nicht schon wieder aufregen.

    #146AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 26 Oct 10, 20:42
    Emil, I no longer live in their flight path and really MISS seeing them!! But, until I can afford to move back down into the valley, I also enjoy observing the falcons/birds of prey surveying their hunting grounds - especially since I do NOT see them actually get the poor mouse/rabbit!

It is/was Emil, there are 20 odd Azubis trying not to yawn and fall asleep,( 'cause it's not very exciting watching someone watching 14 monitors) and we're supposed to keep them amused/interested for 2 to 3 hours. *sigh* It always feels like about 20 to 30 hours by the time they've gone.

    Carly you're welcome, I couldn't look at the thread anymore. I really can't see why people answer his threads anyway, treat him as a troll and maybe he'll go annoy someone else. Apart from that this is an open forum which means even people like Opine can 'contribute'. Carving pumpkins may get easier after studying and teaching art for half your life. :)

    Ich habe auch schon mal ein, zwei vernünftige Sätze mit opine gewechselt, aber die Stimmung ist immer etwas wackelig. Na ja, jedenfalls bekommst Du, Carly, für das "peacefully" in dem Zusammenhang ein (-:

    oooooooooooooooooh, alcohol on top of ibuprofen and tetrazepame. Not good.
    WILL you stop swimming away, keyboard!
    Goodnight, sweet outer-eaters.
    #170Authoreasy (238884) 29 Oct 10, 23:01
    Good night & take care, easy.
    #171AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 29 Oct 10, 23:08
    easy, Night-night - are you still sick???

    Emil, was für eine Prüfung? Ich hätte gedacht, Du erteilst sie :-)) Yeah, most of my windows are now freshly washed, and the PEACE of the (non-opine) world can shine through :-))
    #172AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 29 Oct 10, 23:22
    Ja, stimmt, Carly. Das Auto wurde geprüft, und ich habe geprüft.

    edít: Sagt mal, findet Ihr es seltsam, wenn mich das "(--••• •••--)" aus dem Fadentitel immer an eine Ninja Turtle mit Badebrille erinnert?
    #173AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 30 Oct 10, 00:13
    Lol! Jetzt wo Du es sagst, Emil. Nee, nicht seltsam. Ich sehs jetzt auch!

    Carly, ich hab ne neue Matratze, weil meine alte mir immer Rückenschmerzen verursacht hat und eh uralt war. Mit dem Ergebnis, dass sich meine Schulter/Nackenmuskulatur in rigormortisähnlichen Streik begeben hat.

    Dafür hock ich grad wieder auffe Arbeit und warte... warte... warte...
    #174Authoreasy (238884) 30 Oct 10, 09:35
    Hi, All!

    Same here, Emil - yep, most definitely a Ninja Turtle :-))

    easy, I wish God had invented bone lubrication :-)) About 3 months ago, I slept in my granddaughter's bunk bed when babysitting, because her friend was spending the night, and they had the guestroom double bed. Felt rather silly in a "Princess Lillyfee" pink bed, BUT she had the most wonderful mattress, which somehow supported all the achy spots :-))
    #175AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 30 Oct 10, 13:28
    Wünsche Euch allen ein wunderschönes Herbstwochenende. Morgen ist Taufe, daher ist heute Putztag, damit morgen alles schön glänzt..
    #176AuthorWaringham (384862) 30 Oct 10, 14:29
    LOL! Hi, Wari - good reason to clean house, though, with a baby at home, it's soooooooooo hard to find the time to do so :-)) I'm in the midst of house-cleaning, too, since my little witches will be here tomorrow. Just finished concocting a ghost for the dark living room corner :-) Now off to carve my pumpkin!

    Edith: And, congratulations!!
    #177AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 30 Oct 10, 15:29
    Lol, WAS für ein Datum für eine Taufe, Wari. Viel Spaß!
    Ich werde an euch denken heute :-*

    Happy Beltane everybody. Blessed be!
    #178Authoreasy (238884) 31 Oct 10, 14:39
    Happy Halloween, easy - das mit der Datum der Taufe habe ich mir auch gedacht - gotta get a move on, my witches will soon arrive...everything's ready except for the finishing touches, as in heating oven to pop in "ghost-shaped" Smileys von McCains, heat succotash and toast bread for bacon, lettuce, tomato sandwiches.
    #179AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 31 Oct 10, 15:57

    easy: Na, wenn ich nicht daran glaube, wer dann?? ^_^

    Taufe war schön (ev), Essen lecker (mediterran), Feier wild -konnte mein Kind vor lauter Weibern (2 Omas, 2 Tanten, 5 Cousinen) gar nicht sehen. Abends war er fertig mit den Nerven, aber tagsüber hat er wacker durchgehalten..
    Heute geht's wieder zum Babayschwimmen, neuer Kurs-neue Zeit..mal sehen.

    Schönen Tag Euch allen!
    #180AuthorWaringham (384862) 01 Nov 10, 07:21
    Moin all!

    Na, alle weggezaubert außer Waringham (ev.)?
    #181AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 01 Nov 10, 12:53
    Das haben Halloween, Allerheiligen, Beltane und Reformationstag so an sich..
    Einige Bundesländer (u.a. NRW) haben heute Feiertag, Emil..

    Ja, Warison und sein Papa sind evangelisch-lutherisch, ich bin (und bleibe) rk (römisch-katholisch)..nicht zu verwechseln mit griechisch-römisch..

    Schönen Resttag..Heute ist es aber gar novemberlich draußen..
    #182AuthorWaringham (384862) 01 Nov 10, 16:09
    Ja, das ist wohl die Erklärung, an die ich natürlich überhaupt nicht gedacht habe.
    Danke gleichfalls. Wir hatten allerdings auch etwas Sonne heute.
    Aber jetzt macht sich so ein Erbsensuppennebel breit ...
    Huh, huh!
    #183AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 01 Nov 10, 16:28
    Hi, All!

    Sonne schon, aber EISKALT brrrrrrr. Hatte gerüchteweise gehört, daß eine Fa. hier Vorort Bedarf an Mitarbeiter mit sehr gutem Englisch hätten. Heute morgen angerufen, die Dame JA, hätten sie, und ich verbinde Sie mit Herrn X. Herr X war nicht am Platz, ich möchte bitte gegen 15:00 anrufen. Total gefreut. Mein Gespräch:

    Schön guten Tag Herr X. Carly, hier. Ich habe gehört, Sie suchten MA mit Englisch. Sehr barsch: Nein, momentan nicht, Aufwiederhören. Hörer aufgeknallt. Ob Herr X ein schlechten Tag gehabt hat??

    #184AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 01 Nov 10, 16:54
    Nicht ärgern, Carly, nur wundern!
    Vielleicht hatte er nur eine schlechte Viertelstunde ...
    #185AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 01 Nov 10, 20:56
    Good morning people, avery happy Tuesday to one and all. Wari, I think it was a very appropriate day for a 'christening'. :)

    #189AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 02 Nov 10, 10:36
    Hi Emil, about the same here too. It started out foggy, but now it's just grey grey.
    #190Authormykl (442296) 02 Nov 10, 10:46
    Hi, All! Yucky here, too. And Kimmy-cat's still on summertime - thinks Mommy ought to get up at about 6 pm, play catfood bowl, and let her out :-)
    #191AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 02 Nov 10, 10:52
    Hihi, das denken unsere drei Tiger trotz Sommerzeit! Da spart man sich fast den Wecker.
    Aber durch konsequentes Liegenbleiben meinerseits meine ich, dass sie sich langsam daran gewöhnen erst um 7 Futter zu kriegen. Zumindest wecken sie mich nicht mehr ganz so früh...
    #192AuthorMafi (236280) 02 Nov 10, 11:15
    Mafi, liegen bleiben tue ich auch :-)) Ab und zu MUß ich ihr doch zeigen, wer Frau im Haus ist :-)
    #193AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 02 Nov 10, 11:19
    Hi Carly, all cats KNOW that they're the boss in any house. *gg*
    #194Authormykl (442296) 02 Nov 10, 11:53
    Hi, mykl, Ain't that the truth!! :-)) It only takes them a mere hour or so, to have perfectly trained us humans :-)
    #195AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 02 Nov 10, 12:01
    My 'lost' cat never turned up again, but I did save the family some money - from not needing cat food.
    #196Authormykl (442296) 02 Nov 10, 12:23
    mykl, Did it show up at the family's house?? Or never returned?
    #197AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 02 Nov 10, 12:25
    Gone, vanished, done a runner, gone walkabout, disappeared, no longer at home *shrugs* auf nimmerwiedersehen
    #198Authormykl (442296) 02 Nov 10, 12:36
    AWWWWW, mykl, I DO hope the family didn't try to blame you!!
    #199AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 02 Nov 10, 13:16
    *chuckle* No Carly, no blame attatched. I was there for a meal yesterday and if anyone is/was apportioning blame no-one said anything to me. :) 3 out of 4 house animals were still there though, that's not a bad average. The 3 chickens are too stupid to run off and fend for themselves although they could whenever they wanted. :)
    #200Authormykl (442296) 02 Nov 10, 13:22
    Ich mache mich auf den Heimweg. Bis demnächst!

    Morning all !

    "I was there for a meal yesterday" I wonder what they did with the left over cat food now their cats gone ? Often get invited round for a meal there Mykl ?? :-)
    #203AuthorVileness fats (241697) 03 Nov 10, 07:41
    Moin Vf, you've a wicked nasty imagination. *ggg* 'twas chicken.... on the bone so to say and if that was 'disguised' cat food she's got a good future in the catering industry. :=) I'm usually there a few times per month, although not always for a meal.
    #204Authormykl (442296) 03 Nov 10, 07:58
    Moin, all!

    Hmm, Vf, mykl, so früh und schon so lustig?
    #205AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 03 Nov 10, 10:59
    Hi Emil, früh?? It was early as I got up at 4:30. *g*
    #206Authormykl (442296) 03 Nov 10, 11:02
    Hi, All!

    Long time, no see, Vf! They just now interrupted the radio broadcast to state: "Achtung, in BSA ist ein Raubüberfall verübt worden, und die Polizei warnt davor, Anhalter mitzunehmen" Your #203 reminded me of a long-forgotten "incident" - had been divorced for a couple of years, when a new Irish Pub opened up. My children were spending the weekend with their father, sooooooooo I thought I'd go take a look. Met a really NICE (good-looking) Irish guy. Had a bit of trouble understanding just what he was saying at first, but soon got used to his accent. Several hours later, said I needed to be heading home, and he asked me whether I would like to come to his apartment for lunch tomorrow afternoon - he'd made up a GREAT recipe for Irish stew - Purina dog food, and some carrots and potatoes :-)))) Needless to say, I did NOT accept his invitation...

    #207AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 03 Nov 10, 11:35
    Good morning people, a very happy Thursday to one and all.
    #208Authormykl (442296) 04 Nov 10, 05:57

    It would be a happier Thursday if it didn't rain so much...
    #209Authordragonfly70 (672923) 04 Nov 10, 09:48
    Hi Libby, *waves* long time no read. I would have though you were used to it by now. Look on the 'bright' side, if it's raining it's not foggy. :=)
    #210Authormykl (442296) 04 Nov 10, 10:12
    Hi mykl! *waves back*
    There is no real 'bright' side, I have all my lights on in the house... ;-)

    It's true, I hadn't much time for Leo the last few weeks.. :-(
    Actually, I don't have time for it now, but I really missed you! ;-)
    #211Authordragonfly70 (672923) 04 Nov 10, 10:25
    Moin all!
    Hi, mykl and Libelle!
    ... if it's raining it's not foggy. - Eine tolle Regel! Auch aus Yorkshire?
    Und sie gilt ja auch umgekehrt!
    #212AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 04 Nov 10, 11:05
    Hi Emil! *wink*

    But sometimes there's not much difference between fog and rain... at least the result is the same: you will get wet if you go outside! ;-)
    #213Authordragonfly70 (672923) 04 Nov 10, 11:16
    Hi Emil,it's not just the Germans that have Bauernregeln. :=)

    Well spotted Libby. *gg*
    #214Authormykl (442296) 04 Nov 10, 11:52
    Thanks, mykl, sometimes I'm very good at noticing obvious things. ;-)
    #215Authordragonfly70 (672923) 04 Nov 10, 12:06
    Strange, not everyone is. They did a sort of weird experiment in an America town. They dressed people up in grotesquely outrageous costumes and let them loose in the shopping mall. After a couple of minutes they asked loads of people who'd been shopping or drinking coffee or whatever if they'd noticed anything/anyone out of the ordinary. Less than 10% had 'noticed' that these costumed people had been amongst them. :)
    The police ran the 'experiment' to show that eye witnesses aren't always as reliable as people would think.
    #216Authormykl (442296) 04 Nov 10, 12:13
    Nice story... I guess I wouldn't be at all a good eyewitness myself. I probably wouldn't be able to tell how someone who passed me was dressed or how tall he/she was or which eye or hair colour he/she had... :-(
    #217Authordragonfly70 (672923) 04 Nov 10, 12:40
    Yeah, but these poeople were dressed really really wierdly as 7ft clowns with green hair or as white sharks. These were not your average Mr and Mrs Schmidt doing the weekend shopping with the kids. :=)
    #218Authormykl (442296) 04 Nov 10, 12:44
    Ok, in that case I might have noticed them! *gg*

    Now I have to do something useful... I once again spent too much time here! ;-)
    See you!
    #219Authordragonfly70 (672923) 04 Nov 10, 12:48
    Hi, All!

    Yucky weather here, too, soooo what else is new :-)

    I rarely forget the fifth of November :)
    But then we used to have British soldiers in Krefeld and always a good view from our house, enjoying the fireworks...
    #230Authoreasy (238884) 05 Nov 10, 10:29
    *ponder* Do the Brits have fireworks for the new year?? They didn't used to have, but things change.
    #231Authormykl (442296) 05 Nov 10, 10:35

    #232Authoreasy (238884) 05 Nov 10, 10:37
    I know there are public shows/displays (or whatever one calls fireworks), but can the general public actually buy fireworks for new year/hogmanay ??
    #233Authormykl (442296) 05 Nov 10, 10:43
    Moin moin
    It´s catching on in the UK although you can´t buy them in the supermarkets as you can here, that only happens on Guy Fawkes day.
    I ususaly spend New year in the UK and have seen a few of the displays they put on at the London eye (very impressive, but really crowded).
    #234AuthorVileness fats (241697) 05 Nov 10, 10:47
    Hi Vf, I can usually find sth better to do than visit the UK for the new year (like washing the carpet or re-painting the cellar) *fg*
    #235Authormykl (442296) 05 Nov 10, 10:56

    Gotta get back to my latest translation, which is driving me stark raving mad :-)
    #241AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 06 Nov 10, 12:46
    Just got this sent to me and HAD to share :-))

    The Four Cats

    Four men were bragging about how smart their cats were.

    The first man was an Engineer,
    The second man was an Accountant,
    The third man was a Chemist, and
    The fourth man was a Government Employee.

    To show off, the Engineer called his cat, "T-square, do your stuff."

    T-square pranced over to the desk, took out some paper and pen and promptly drew a circle, a square, and a triangle.
    Everyone agreed that was pretty smart.

    But the Accountant said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, "Spreadsheet, do your stuff."

    Spreadsheet went out to the kitchen and returned with a dozen cookies. He divided them into 4 equal piles of 3 cookies.

    Everyone agreed that was good.

    But the Chemist said his cat could do better. He called his cat and said, "Measure, do your stuff."

    Measure got up, walked to the fridge, took out a quart of milk, got a 10 ounce glass from the cupboard and poured

    Exactly 8 ounces without spilling a drop into the glass.
    Everyone agreed that was pretty good.

    Then the three men turned to the Government Employee and said, "What can your cat do?"

    The Government Employee called his cat and said, "CoffeeBreak, do your stuff."

    CoffeeBreak jumped to his feet.......

    Ate the cookies........
    Drank the milk......
    Pood on the paper.......

    Screwed the other three cats........

    Claimed he injured his back while doing so.

    Filed a grievance report for unsafe working conditions......

    Put in for Workers Compensation..................and

    Went home for the rest of the day on sick leave............


    #242AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 06 Nov 10, 13:53

    But the chemist could have come up with a better name for his cat, couldn't he? I would have named it "Aldehyde" or "Beaker" or "Rotovap" or something.
    #243Authorhermarphromoose (169674) 06 Nov 10, 14:09
    Yeah, hermi, the chemist had no imagination - Beaker would have been a much better name :-))

    Very nice, Wari! :-) I don't like these Taufkleidchen at all... So my children didn't wear them either, but some 'normal' clothes. :-)
    And my youngest daughter still has to be christened, somehow we haven't managed to find the right time for it so far...

    mykl, some years of experience showed me that they insist quite a long time on being carried... ;-)

    So, I have some things to do... wish you a nice day!

    But it's always the same with Leo, once I'm logged in I read in this and that thread, sometimes write a posting, and schwupp two hours have gone by! ;-(
    So I probably won't be able to stay very much longer... just a little bit! ;-)

    I just noticed I left the computer switched on the whole night...
    Obviously I was too tired to switch it off before I went to bed yesterday. ;-)

    Deshalb jetzt ein schnelles Good morning bevor ich dem armen Rechner etwas Ruhe gönne...

    #263Authordragonfly70 (672923) 10 Nov 10, 07:43
    Good morning people, a very happy Wednesday to one and all. Libby your computer will survive, it's not as if it was working. :) I try to remember to switch off at home, but here at work the computers are only switched off about once or twice a year.

    #269AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 11 Nov 10, 08:41

    #272Authormykl (442296) 11 Nov 10, 08:52

    But you never know...

    #275AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 11 Nov 10, 10:17
    Moin, Emil!
    Tja, wir wohnten anno damals in einer Karneval/Faschinggegend hoch drei - der 11:11 Termin war bereits vergeben, also mußten wir uns mit 11:30 begnügen :-)
    #276AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 11 Nov 10, 10:34

    #277Authormykl (442296) 11 Nov 10, 12:31
    So people, I've got to start and put the toys away for another day. I wish everyone a pleasant evening, have fun and may your Gods go with you.

    Good morning people, a very happy Friday to one and all.
    #282Authormykl (442296) 12 Nov 10, 08:11
    Good morning mykl! *waves*

    Current state outside: dark, wet, cold, stormy, still no yellow ball... Hmpf!
    #283Authordragonfly70 (672923) 12 Nov 10, 08:27
    Good morning!

    Where I live it's: light gray, reasonable warm (9°C), stormy, no yellow ball yet
    But the wind was stronger in the evening yesterday. Nearly blew things off the balcony. It calmed down a bit by now (can you use that phrase for wind?)
    #284AuthorMafi (236280) 12 Nov 10, 09:07
    Hi libby and mafi *waves*

    It has calmed down a bit now...

    Yesterday was NOT bike riding weather. I was very happy when I got home at last and into dry clothing.
    #285Authormykl (442296) 12 Nov 10, 10:47
    Hi, All!

    Horrific winds yesterday evening, and Kimmy-cat finally comprehended that it was better to snuggle down next to Mommy, rather than venturing outdoors :-)) All the lovely autumn-leaf scenery has disappeared - yellow ball is currently shining, but I seriously doubt that it will concur all the clouds in the sky.
    #286AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Nov 10, 11:08
    A sunny storm now! Yesterday night, the storm blew those yellow bags (?) all over the streets, which always reminds me of a deserted Western town.
    #287AuthorEmil 14 (299747) 12 Nov 10, 11:35
    Hi Carly and Emil, yep, we've got the industrialised version of tumble weeds too. :=)

    #288Authormykl (442296) 12 Nov 10, 11:40
    My brain must still be wind(ing)-damaged I spelled conquer wrong :-)) Winds picking up here, too, and my daughter just called to ask whether I couldn't drive down to the valley and let their Irish Wolfhound out into the garden, which entails 6 kms through the Höllental woods...he's now about this size: :-))
    #289AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Nov 10, 11:43
    Uiieeee, big puppy!! :)
    #290Authormykl (442296) 12 Nov 10, 12:40
    Yeah, and big puppy went galloping off down the street before I could grab hold of his collar and lead him the short distance into the garden. He made a sharp turn to the left and when I finally got to the "last seen" position, I found the knee-deep mud road headed uphill into the woods. Luckily, I spotted him about 500 m away, but he didn't give two hoots about obeying my "bei Fuss" calls, nor could he be tempted by the Leckerlis I had pocketed. He took his own sweet time smelling out traces of his friends/enemies. And he's been going to "Hunde-Schule" for at least nine months...stubborn guy!! :-) I did finally manage to get him back home, but it took some doing.
    #291AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Nov 10, 14:13
    Und ich dachte schon, Carly sei auf den hund gekommen. Da bin ich aber jetzt froh :)
    Hi guys. Bald müssen wir umziehen...
    #292Authoreasy (238884) 12 Nov 10, 14:24
    Hi, easy - long time, no see - wie/ wo umziehen?? ACHHH, fadentechnisch umziehen...laughing at myself.
    #293AuthorCarly-AE (237428) 12 Nov 10, 14:27
