Good morning! Guten Morgen! A foggy day in Malmö town.


Dumba - I will listen to Matti Salminen later. I like him and his voice!

Britta-Gudrun - I wish you a speedy recovery!

Yeo - Thank you for the breakfast - the Herkules smells heavenly! :D

Ludmila - I will read your artikel in KWM later but thank you in advance.

Chris - This bl...y troll is very stubborn but I'm a Finn and even more stubborn!!! - I wish you a nice tour!

Have a cosy and relaxing Sunday and take care!

PS. Our Swedish friends are 'burning' and determined to save Orsa Predator Center. Please, give them your support in FB if you can. A couple of encouriging words are more than welcome. I was glad to find many familiar names in their petition, too! :D

What can we do about the Trolls ? :( :roll:
Who is hiding behind all the stupid links?
Ich bin etwas ratlos.

BRITTA - gute Besserung !

Ich hatte seit 2010 keine
Erkaeltung mehr - toi, toi, toi
das ganzjaehrig Rad fahren
tut schon was dazu... :)

I will start soon: a little
winter-tour is on the
schedule today. :)

Have a cosy sunday !

Hoffentlich schmettert der Saenger die nervigen Trolle hier aus dm BLog, liebe Nachteule Dumba!
Leider hat mich eine Erkaeltung erwischt - die erste seit 2017 (!), also entfaellt das Ausgehessen.

Dave - I hope the games were good and thrilling. Enjoy the BBQ!

Ralph - Thank you for the emails! They arrived 'safe and sound'. :D

Chris - I hope the situation in the Baltic won't accelerate! - We have passed the 600 - the next goal is 1000 ...

DAVE - I ve thought of you this week,
because Christa reported, they had
about -30C in their region in Quebec.
I am very glad, to live in a less cold
region here in south of Hessen...

DUMBA - "little" Quannik has grown
to a big, beautiful bear now. :)
Unbelievable, how time runs...

MERVI - german u-boats are on the
way in the baltic sea - some of the
politicians seem to think, this all
is a big play. Lets hope, we will
not burn our fingers in it....
I don t want to live in Baltikum -
even Finnland has a border with
Uncle Putin: difficult times... :roll:

I wish everybody a cosy evening.
Tomorrow they predict sunshine.
A tour is planned for sunday...

By the way, our petition has
reached the 620 votes - not
so bad for one week ! :)

Good Afternoon.

We have been hit by a real winter this week. Monday we got over 40cm of snow and the temperatures have been holding at -15C to -25C everyday this week. Today it is partly sunny and -12C. I have been taking 2 shorter walks a day due to the extreme cold.

Omicron seems to be at its peak here in Ontario. All the hospitals in Waterloo Region are very close to full, but new cases are dropping. Let's hope that this is the beginning of the end of Covid19.

Today is chores and another walk later this afternoon to pick up a steak for BBQ tonight. It is NFL football weekend again. Two games today and the same tomorrow. I'll watch some of the games, but sitting in front of the TV for 6 or more hours is not my idea of fun.

Have a nice, relaxing Saturday.

Chris - Kaja sure is an adorable baby boy. I wish him lots of health and happiness! - The politicians are a bunch of idiots that only think of their own careers. - There are no news about any submarines yet in the Swedish media.

Dumba - Thanks for the comments! Have a nice Saturday afternoon!

MERVI - Sweden sends troops to Gotland:
maybe the first u-boats are diving near Stockholm
Ich finde diese Kriegs-Rhetorik gefährlich - bei
manchen Zeitgenossen meint man, sie
wünschten sich geradezu einen Krieg :roll:

animals in the WILHELMA.ZOO.PARC, enriched by Mervi.s words and by her

The hugging scene between the horned beauty and her calf is lovely . .
The facial expression artists, the camel.ssnouts are very funny
The colourful pelikan with his fluffy plumage is an extra beautiful sight
The furry girls and guys give always an especially as elegant as gorgeous spectacle even if they don.tdoanyting :-)
The sealion.s face (ears, eyes, beard) is quite majestic and he.she obviously knows something of the importance of its name! ;-)

MERVI - I am also disapointed of the politicians in Sweden.
Only the green party answered my letter - all other parties,
or ministers didn t send any reaction - its a shame... :roll:


Die Trolle haben sich leider auch auf einigen aelteren Threads breitgemacht...

Good morning! Guten Morgen! It's a sunny day but I'm feeling a touch of cold so I'm staying indoors. I hope the cold is 'just a cold'.

Britta-Gudrun - Let's hope it will be a good avalanche! :D

Ludmila - I was glad to find familiar names among the signatures. I'm sure our Swedish friends are glad, too.

Chris - I don't know how many has written to Grönklitt but they are quite many. I guess the cowards haven't answered anybody.

In KWM I published Petra Ballon's nice photos from Wilhelma. I also apologized for the behaviour of Orsa Grönklitt. The keepers and visitors in Stuttgart must be really angry and disappointed.

Have a cosy Saturday and take care!
