Last of the 'Glühwein'

Dear friends! We can soon wave goodbye to Old Man Winter although some of us never met him. Let's enjoy the last of the 'Glühwein' before we want cold drinks! :D

Its dry with 11°C - not so bad.....
So I´ll start to a little tour soon. :)

MERVI - I read your story in the evening.
So much snow in the end of March is
unusual - even for Skaniia, isn´t it ? ;)

BRITTA - Stromausfälle sind selten heute.
Gut, dass die Heizung wieder funktioniert. :)

Guten Tag trotz einiger Stoerungen!

Meine Heizung spielte nach einem Stromausfall etwas verrueckt.
Aber dank des guten Firmenservice funktioniert sie wieder.
Das haette mir gerade noch gefehlt an winterlichen Ostertagen
im Kalten zu sitzen...

Schnee gibt es hier keinen, dafuer genug Regen - but Baby don`t care!

Mervi, die Erinnerungen an die Golden Girls sind wunderbar und
liebe Dumba, ja, mit Musik verbindet man ganz viele Erinnerungen aus der

Teilt erfolgreich die Woche!

Good morning! Guten Morgen! Dear fluffy angel - it's been snowing a lot here during the night. What luck we did our shopping yesterday so we don't have to put up with the 'Formula-1 drivers' on the roads.

Chris - It looks like the weather is about the same on both sides of the Baltic Sea. - The little trampoline master is ever so cute. I hope it didn't fall off .... :D - The swans are magnificent birds!

Ralph - While you're planning your Berlin trip you can admire Katjuscha in Steve's wonderful photos: https://tinyurl.com/y8924tr8

Dumba - Thank you for the entertainment! A walk on the musical memory lane always brings back so many memories. - I keep mixing up 'our bears' all the time, too. I hope this year's cubs will get names that are easy to remember - no Nanuqs or Quanniks I hope!

I have published one of my old stories again in KWM. This time it's about the innovative Golden Girls making preparations for the Easter.

Now I wish everybody a most pleasant HumpDay!

Good Morning Everybody

Is it possible we are about the same generation!? . . .
Always nice to remember or to be emboldened to remember (THANK YOU!)
the music we heard so often when we were young.
Again, we can say: THOSE WERE THE DAYS!


Seems I still like the song.
In addition Albert was a quite handsome guy, as you can see in the video . . .:
(What's hard to see and in this case also to hear:
how we all must have changed in the course of the years
- not always to the bad . . . . but for sure nearly nobody has got more beautiful . . .)


My father is a doctor he's a family man.
My mother works for charity whenever she can.
And they're both good clean Americans who abide by the law,
and they both stick up for liberty and they both support the war.
My happiness was paid for when they laid their money down
for summers in a summer camp and winters in the town.
My future in the system was talked about and planned
but I gave it up for music and The Free Electric Band!

I went to school in hand washed shirts with neatly ordered hair
and the school was big and newly built and filled with light and air.
And the teachers taught us values that we had to learn to keep,
and they'd clip the ear of any idle kid who went to sleep.
And my father organized for me a college in the East
but I went to California, the sunshine and the beach.
My parents and my lecturers could never understand
why I gave it up for music and The Free Electric Band.

Well, they used to sit and speculate upon their son's career -
a lawyer or a doctor or a civil engineer.
Just give me bread and water, put a guitar in my hand,
'cause all I need is music and The Free Electric Band!

My father sent me money and I spent it very fast
on a girl I met in Berkeley in a social science class.
Yes, and we learned about her body but her mind we didn't know
until deep rooted attitudes and morals began to show.
She wanted to get married, even though she never said.
But I knew her well enough by now to see inside her head.
She'd settle for suburbia and a little patch of land.
So I gave her up for music and The Free Electric Band!

ooh... The Free Electric Band...

You can continue to listen y..t..e.
I promis: It's a walk down memory lane!

MERVI - I am sorry: . . once and again I mix up ORSA and RANUA . . .

Heute wird es chaotisch in Frankfurt:
Die Straßenbahnen und U-Bahnen :roll:
streiken. Aber ich muss ja zum Glück
nicht mehr in die City...

Wünsche allen trotz Nässe einen passablen Tag


RALPH - I remember Albert Hammond very well. :)

Am back for a nightcap.
I like Mervi's musical reference.
I also remember Albert Hammonds
Free Electric Band song from the 70s.
I am hoping that Kati will be basking
in the sun when I go to Berlin and Antonia
and co in Gelsenkirchen.

MERVI - I heard, in Meck-Pomm we also have snow.
Here its raining cats and dogs in the moment... :roll:
The easter weather looks not really promising.
( on Christmas we had higher temperatures )

Oh bear, it's SNOWING AGAIN here! The ground is white. Maybe I should decorate the Christmas tree ....

Chris - The 7-1 game was really incredible. It's one of the games we never forget.

Dumba - The snacks look delicious and I'm sure the wine is excellent, too! :D - There's no male brownie in Ranua so Malla has no cubs. In Orsa Losa has three cubbies.

Knutilda - I'm glad to hear your mother is doing better now.

After a nice afternoon and evening (sunshine outside while reading inside in this wonderful light !),

Sogar FRISCHE FEIGEN (am Stueck und aufgeschnitten ! ) sind dabei! . . .Voilà:

Ich rechne vor allem auch mit Dir,

Heute spielt Deutschland gegen Brasilien. :)
Ich weiß nicht, ob ich mir das Spiel anschaue.
( ein 7:1 wie beim letzten mal wirds sicher nicht )

Late April is a good time for travelling. :)
Normaly it´ll be summerlike at this time !

Bienchen sind Wunderwerke der Natur.
Ich mache mir allerdings große Sorgen
um die Insekten. :roll:

Ralph - Oh bear, our Nobby is getting heroic - and Nissan, too! I wonder if they've been planning the chasing together .... :D - You and BN are a real travelling band. Do you remember the song by Creadence Clearwater Revival?

Chris - You've had a good day! Shopping and after that 'entertainment'!

Annemarie - Uncle Sergej is so happy meeting you here and so am I! He's more than happy to serve you with whatever you want! :D

Dumba - I like bees and the photo is marvellous!

As we know by now, there was lately and IS a lack of bees;
therefore Farmers can rent bees now to make sure they will
have apples, strawberries etc.
