Ludmila, du hast recht mit der immer noch großen Dunkelheit im Januar, deshalb kommt der "Novemberblues" bei vielen auch erst im Januar an.
Wie geht es dem Streunerkater in deinem Gartenhaus? du hast lange nichts mehr von ihm erzaehlt.
Anori hat die Wurfhoehle zur Kuschelhoehle mit ihrem Lover gemacht - klasse!

Knuti-Judi, viel Erfolg beim Plaetzchen-Marathon!

Lethi, liebe Gruesse und beste Wuensche fuer dich.

You can now admire QUINTANA'S AND GIOVANNA'S CHRISTMAS TREE in KWM! Helmut Kern kindly gave me permission to publish a couple of photos.

Chris - Let's hope there will be a cure against the dangerous virus for the Tasmanian Devils.

Celinne - Thank you for the beautiful words! people very often forget the words love and generosity.

Hello dear Mervi and all Knuipe citizens. A warm shout out to Ludmila and Filo. Just popping for a moment to bring big, warm bear hugs to all. I hope that all the chores and gift buying are completed and everyone can make time for themselves and our furry friends. It is cold here...too cold for the season but we are bundling up.
Wanted to share these few lines with everyone:
"The spirit of Christmas is the spirit of love and of generosity and of goodness. It illuminates the picture window of the soul, and we look out upon the world's busy life and become more interested in people than in things." Thomas S. Monson

Ab jetzt werden die Tage wieder länger.
Keine Chance auf Sternschnuppen bei
dauergrauem Himmel.

On Christmas we´ll have 10°C.
Its grey and not white.- but I
don´t need the white stuff.

So lets have a Glühwein together.

Ludmila - I meant Rostik. :D

Dumba - Thanks for the news from Berlin. I think Meng Meng is quite happy in the zoo - at least if I can judge from all the photos of her. Maybe she just wants to make sure she's in everybody's focus. :D

Britta-Gudrun - At the moment it's a very sunny day here but soon it will get dark again and we can light the candles to brighten up the evening. I love the cosyness!

I did not find something new about the zoo Rostock. I think we have to wait till the summer to learn more.
Ich finde, dass im Dezember durch die vielen Lichter ist die Dunkelheit erträglich. Im Januar ist immer noch dunkel und es gibt keine festliche Lichter mehr.

News from ZOO BERLIN

Her going backwards seems to be discovered as a sign
she simply likes to be 'obvious' to people, as she is
human-addicted and got to know that she can provoke
attention with her behaviour! . . Zoo has made some
'action' to teach her she is interesting in any case - no need
for special unusual behaviour. However, we always love antics!
Don't we!?

Guten Morgen!

Na, mit der nun laengsten Nacht des Jahres geht es ab morgen wieder aufwaerts, und die vielen Lichter des Weihnachtsfestes erhellen sowieso diese dunklen Tage.

Dumba, danke fuer deine vielen Links, damit faengt der Tag ganz gut an.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - believe it or not but it's a sunny day here!

Dumba - The Band Aid's Christmas song is a favourite just like John Lennon's 'Happy X-mas (War is over). They make me - and hopefully many others - to think how blessed we are. - I didn't know about Chris Rea's collaps. I hope he's doing fine now. - Is it a 'kanelbulle' you serve us as breakfast today? :D

Ralph - Giovanna and Quintana are a lovely couple and even though there are thousands of photos of them we can still find something new in the latest pics. I'm really glad about Anita's updates.

Teddybärenmutti - Is there still snow in Turku?

Britta-Gudrun - Sometimes the mail men seem to have wings! :D

Ludmila - Have you seen any news of Rostik lately? I try to follow FB but our Russian friends put so much stuff there that it's a bit difficult to follow everything - especially when I have to let Mr Google translate almost everything. At least I can now read the bears' names .... :D

Chris - I had hopes for a polar bear cub in Copenhagen but now I have to focus on the coming rhino baby birth which should happen any day now.

I wish everybody a cosy TDT with photos and videos of Giovanna and Quintana in KWM!

Dumba Fortunately Chris Rea was in a city with a great hospital, so I think all ended okay

The picture of Giovanna with Quintana reminded me of how many beautiful Mother and Daughter combinations we have had over the last couple of years. They all are quite wonderful but in various ways slightly different. They also have keen supporters like Monika K, Birgit B and of course Anita. The Mother and Child Reunion song of course would include the handsome sons as well.

First little breakfast for you, DEARs

TEDDYBAERENMUTTI - Gut, dass Du daran erinnerst.
Man merkt dann immer wieder relativ schnell, dass es tatsaechlich
taeglich etwas heller wird. HOFFENTLICH auch in dieser Saison wieder!
Wie geht's Euch? . . . Uebertreibe das Putzen nicht!

Wie schade, dass an Tagen mit besonderen Himmelsereignissen
doch haeufiger Wolken, Regen etc. einen Strich durch freudigen Erwartungen machen!

Goennet Euch zwischen all dem mehr oder weniger noetigen(?) Weihnachtsgedoens
auch immer wieder ein bisschen Ruhe und Musse - dann laeuft alles wieder besser.
Einzige Gefahr - das gebe ich zu: danach hat man oft noch weniger Lust auf Pflichtprogramm! ;)

You may like to listen a little piece of music of 'Band AID 30'
while your leisure minutes:

And a little tribute to CHRIS REA who had a break down on satage
in Oxford not long ago:

MERVI + INGE aus Cph - Oh, das ist schon ein bisschen schade.
Aber goenen wir eben NOEL und NORD nochmals ein Junggesellenjahr!
