Die Knuipe

Year 2020, please, be nice to us!

Posted by Mervi on January 8, 2020 at 8:35 AM

Dear friends! The year 2020 is rolling. Even though this year had a miserable start with the fires in Australia and the tragedy in Krefeld I hope the rest of the year will be better!

Our Knuipe has been running so well lately so it's really annoying there are server problems again. Let's hope the problems are over now!

Knuti-Judi - Please, remember the 'onion fashion' if it gets too cold! :D

Ludmila - A dinner in an Italian restaurant sounds like a perfect birthday dinner!

Ralph - I hope you can make it to Doncaster tomorrow. Hopefully the weather gods will be smiling at you and the white fluffy guys! :D - You're right, it's great to hear some good news now that this year has started with some really bad and sad news!

Yeo - I'm glad to hear you're doing fine after the surgery! Of course, it will take some time to get fully recovered but I'm sure you're happy to be home again.

Chris - Greta is doing a good job and we can only hope that at least some leaders will listen to her! The Gaga certainly isn't one of them!

Leider war vorhin die Tuer zur Knuipe wieder verschlossen.

We had dream weather again, cold but sunny, how I like it.

MERVI - Greta had a very good speach in Davos today. But I
fear, that the leaders of the world will not hear the warning. :roll:

LUDMILA - I also like italian food, I have a favorite restaurant.
We have an Italien in our rowing club, where you can sit on the
terrace in summer - very nice.! :)

YEO - schone dich erstmal, Du bist sicher lange krank geschrieben.

RALPH - I join you with a toast on the successful team in Ranua ! :D

Hello dear Knuipians!

I'm now at Home, back from the hospital. And I'm feel good.
(Den Umständen entsprechend). :)

I wish you all a pleasant evening!

Thank you for the good news story about Venus. As I wrote in the KWM comments this might have been a death sentence in the wild, instead we have a beautiful Polar Bear lady living in a great place.
Was with an old friend from Sudan, who also met me in Berlin in 2009 during the Knut times. We went to the famous Oxford Natural History Museum. One of the exhibits is an old Polar Bear skeleton. It was amazed to see how long the bone inside the tail stump is. This means that the stump can do a lot more than I had thought.
Tomorrow if all goes well I will be with the boys in Doncaster. I am not sure when I will be able to report.
Been very cold here today but should be warmer tomorrow.
Ludmila and Uwe Bella Italia is just the thing on a cold Winter's night!
Let us drink to the Finnish-Danish team and lovely Venus who remind us that the world can be a wonderful place in these dark times

It is about 0C in our region, but I feel this as cold too :)
We visited yesterday in the evening an Italian restaurant. It was very pleasant.

Good morning! Guten Morgen! The January really has a Janus face - it's raining every other day and the sun is shining every other day. :D

Chris - Thanks for the laughs! I never stop wondering how Mr Gaga could be elected as the President - and I'm afraid he will be re-elected, too.

Ludmila - I hope you had a great birthday with your family! - Oh bear, you've at least had a touch of frost even if the Winter prefers to stay away.

Patricia - It's your favourite day! :D


I wish everybody a pleasant Tuesday!

We had the frost too - but the sun is shining.
I like this weather with dry air and sunshine.
There were still problems with the server....
I am on the road now - see you all in the
evening at the bar.... :)

I met them last week in Hanau.

We had frost in the night. In the morning the car was frozen too.
Now the sun is shining.

Chris - There were some server problems earlier but now everything seems to be working fine.

Annemarie, Leti, Ralph, Chris - Let's raise our glasses to our birthday child Ludmila!

Now I want to taste Wasja's borsch and Madame Nini's cake! :D

MERVI - es ist seltsam.
Ich kam vorhin nicht
mehr in die Knuipe,
sehe aber, dass mein
Posting doch durch-
gekommen ist. :)

Trinken wir auf das Geburtstagskind.

RALPH - in der Arktis haben Cubbies
ja auch keine Streu - da liegen sie auf
gefrorenem Boden. Naesse waere
wohl eher ein Problem, als Kaelte. :)

Back into the Knuipe
Chris I can confirm that Malik was given the chance to have bedding material but she prefers the clean hard surface. Her fur is always immaculate. The babies have Maliks fur to nestle in.
I join you all in raising a glass to Ludmila

Und wieder hatten wir Kaiserwetter.
Unsere Gegend wird diesen Winter
wirklich von der Sonne verwöhnt. :)
Allerdings ist es jetzt frostig geworden.

LUDMILA - gefüllte Pelmini sind lecker.
Borscht ist nicht so mein Fall. Ninis
Kuchen schmeckt gut.

MERVI - in Australia they have every
kind of weather: thunderstorms with
heavy hail, lightning, floodings and
duststorms in other regions.
But 70 fires are still burning.
Its all very extrem ! :roll:

Thank you
I brough more champagne for our party tonight. Nini's birthday cake is delicious.
Our Wasja cookes Rusian Borsch and makes Pelmeni for tonight. Muffin, Minka and Sydney are helping him :)
