Die Knuipe

Let's hope the year 2019 will be a happy year for us all!

Dear friends! It's time again to welcome a new year. Although it sounds naive to wish peace in the world I wish it anyway! I also wish that the world leaders will finally open their eyes and realize what's happening to our planet. Of course, I even wish all my friends - those with two legs and those with four legs - a very happy new year!

Chris I understand your frustration but you need to understand that many people in Britain see Mrs Merkel and President Macron in a similar way. Europe has never been so unpopular in my lifetime. Nightly films of demonstrstions in Erfurt or Paris have a similar effect here to Btexit.
That is why I normally avoid politics but as the radio was on.

LUDMILA - wenn ich nur 200 Stimmen meiner eigenen Partei
bekomme, muss ich zurück treten - das gebietet der Anstand!
Wir haben jetzt drei Jahre verhandelt: die Briten müssen sich
entscheiden - aber es wird weiter auf Zeit gespielt, das nützt
niemandem (es gibt keine Zeit mehr, das Datum 29.3 steht).

RALPH - for me Theresa May is a tragic person: she tried her best,
but failed - and her worst enemies are members of the own party ! :roll:

Relaxing now and listening to Radio 4. We have just had Diane Zimmerman from ZDF interviewed for the German point of view.
To try and explain where we are.
The vote in 2016 was a clean split into two halves. The vote to leave came as a surprise to everyone.
Since then people on both sides have been even more divided into what sort of Brexit they want or can live with. The debates in Parliament have reflected this.
There is no majority for any Brexit option in Parliament or in the country.
As someone who did not vote, I remain of the same view. Neither the EU nor the Brexiteers have come out of the last two years well. Mrs May has tried to steer a middle path and neither side in UK has been pleased.
I still think we will either leave on her agreement on 29 March or a majority in Parliament will force her to have a Referendum

Ich finde Theresa May hat für den geordneten Brexit hart gekämpft. Sie hätte sicherlich jetzt aufgeben können, aber sie lies Corbyn den Misstrauensantrag stellen. Es kann sein, dass May gewinnen wird, weil Corbyn nicht beliebt ist :)
Ich hoffe die Briten schaffen zu entscheiden, was sie wollen.

Ludmila - I hope the rest of your working day was more peaceful. Enjoy the musical!

Chris - The video of Nanook is lovely. - How great you could meet so many feathered friends by the river.

Knuti-Judi - The elevator worked for a while but now it's standing still again. Grrrrr!

Britta-Gudrun - I wish you best of luck preparing the farewell party.

Ralph - I hope the cleaning and tidying is finished now so you can have a relaxed evening with your bears.

I must rest my hand again so I can't write so much now.

GUTEN ABEND

Nachmittags kam tatsächlich noch die Sonne raus.
So I hurried to the river, where my feathered friends
were wating. Die Schwäne bauen tatsächlich schon
an ihrem Nest (bzw. führen Reparatur-Arbeiten aus).
A huge pack of Canada geese landed on the water,
they came on the meadow, to eat from the green gras.
We had a chilly wind - the river has still high water. :)

BRITTA - ich hatte das Blog auch aus den Augen
verloren - nun schrieb ich Manuela eine Mail und
sie gab mir die neue Adresse. :)

LUDMILA - am Main war auch Wind, von der Seite.

RALPH
Theresa May will not resign: I can´t understand it,
after the catastrophic defeat yesterday evening.
I hope for a new referendum against Brexit.
Otherwise we´ll have a big mess in April.
Polititians won´t give up their privileges,
thats a shame - its a total standstill. :roll:

Guten Tag!

Ich bin heute spaet dran. Am Freitag ist unsere Abschiedsfeier im Büro, deswegen gibt es noch einiges zu tun.
Hier ist das Wetter sehr freundlich mit ein bisschen Sonne und ohne Wind.

Ich eile ins KWM!
Chris, danke für den Tipp zu Manuelas Blog, der andere war irgendwann nicht mehr zugaenglich oder wie oder was? Ich hatte jedenfalls den Link geloescht.

Hello friends at coffee time!

Bei uns ist heute trocken, aber der Wind ist stark. Wir sind gestern Abend gelaufen, der Weg hin war gut, aber zurück musste man gegen den Wind kämpfen :)

I wish you a nice Hump Day

Today in the evening we will go in the theater to the musical "Cats"

GUTEN MITTAG

Ich war schon früh auf dem Markt. :)
Es ist zwar grau, aber mild und trocken.
Also kann man auch Fahrrad fahren.
Ich schaue mal, was das Hochwasser
am Main macht.

MERVI - Monika has brought us nice pictures from Berlin !
Katjuscha macht einen sehr guten Eindruck für ihr Alter.
And Wolodja had much fun, playing in the water... :)

Good morning! Guten Morgen!
I had a busy morning at work.

It is great that Uncle Sergej made fresh Herkules.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - the Winter in Scania continues to be grey and rainy. Well, I'm used to that but it still looks very dull.

When I came in I smelled fresh Herkules. Uncle Sergej was busy preparing a brunch for us. I'm curious to see what yammy dishes he and Madame Nini have prepared. :D

In KWM you'll find fantastic photos of Katjuscha and Wolodja in Monika aus Berlin's report with also a couple of videos.

I wish everybody a happy Hump Day!

Ralph - How about a nice rhum toddy in Uncle Sergej's version?

Britta-Gudrun - I'm glad to hear the result of your medical test was better than you feared.

Chris - The koala certainly had a good shower.

Ludmila - We cat owners always have small 'souvenirs' from the cats' claws. They don't mean to hurt us, of course, but there are often mishaps.

Mich hat nach dem Tod meiner Mutter ihre Katze beim Tierarzt gebissen. Der Tierarzt hat die Spritze mit dem Chip ungeschickt eingesetzt. Die Katze war erschrocken und biss zu. Es ist alles wieder geheilt.
Minka hat mich auch ein Mal mit der Pfote hart geschlagen. Es hat lange weh getan.
Ich hoffe Dein Zeigefinger wird sich bald erholen.
Chris, Mervi
I am for the evening drink too

MERVI - ich bin hier für einen guten Drink
Bei uns soll es ab Freitag kälter werden.

BRITTA
Mich hat noch nie ein Kater gehauen.
Kleinere Kratzer bekommt man aber
immer mal ab, auch von den Katzen.

Guten Abend,

nach einem ausgiebigen und beruhigten Nachmittagsschlaf.
Das Ergebnis war nicht wesentlich schlechter als das im Herbst,
oder anders gesagt - besser als meine derzeitig gefühlter Staus.
Danke fuer eure guten Wuensche!
Also genieße ich heute Abend den Snack und Drink von Uncle Sergej, liebe Mervi.

Yeo, das war eine boese Ueberraschung heute, hoffentlich heilt alles schnell.

Chris, das Video stimmt groeßtenteils, nur ihre "Schlagkraft" wird nicht erwaehnt. Mein Zeigefinger ist seit Djangos letzter Attacke im oberen Bereich ohne Gefuehl, also richtig taub.

The cold weather arrives here tomorrow so I would certainly like a drink from uncle s.

I suggest we all have an evening drink now. Uncle Sergej has been very busy and needless to say very creative, too. :D Do we have the guts to sample his creations? :D

I hope, that the decision won´t effect the 20 years
of peace in Northern Ireland. If the border will close
again, I fear, that the struggles could begin again.
That would be the worst case between Republic
of Ireland and the part which belongs to the UK.
