1st Snow

It's been snowing since yesterday afternoon now and for the 1st time I can remember we are behaving like the Brits. Panic, traffic jams, car crashes, hoarding. Europe is growing together after all! No school closures announced though...

Another thing that makes my day: "I'm sorry I haven't a clue" is back on air. You can listen live on Radio 4 Mondays, 18:30 or anytime online here.

A little surprise coming up on 1st December... Posted by Picasa

Things that make my day - Duncan Fulton

I remember first listening to Duncan when I was still in school. I used to stand and listen for ages while he was playing anything from Dylan to The Eagles as well as songs he has written himself. It was nice to see that Duncan is still playing and a day is a good day when I hear him through my office window. It makes me leave the office to get a coffee from Starbucks and stand and listen for a couple of songs.

Duncan is also into golf and a clip of him explaining the art can be found herePosted by Picasa

Elitist

What it says about me below is quite close to the mark. But what elitist are you?

HASH(0x8c87d40)
You speak eloquently and have seemingly read every
book ever published. You are a fountain of
endless (sometimes useless) knowledge, and
never fail to impress at a party.
What people love: You can answer almost any
question people ask, and have thus been
nicknamed Jeeves.
What people hate: You constantly correct their
grammar and insult their paperbacks.


What Kind of Elitist Are You?

Autumnal Mülheim

I thought I'd treat you to a picture of Mülheim in the autumn sunshine. Hope you are enjoying similarly good weather. This picture is taken close to the river Ruhr which gave the whole region its name. Christmas market season is about to begin. The markets are being erected in Essen at the moment and a hint of Glühwein is already in the air. Picture to follow. Have a good start of the week and keep in touch! Posted by Picasa

Annette's Birthday Do

Exactly three months after her birthday we had Annette's do yesterday. We didn't get round to it at the time with the wedding and all. A good time was had by all even without a bonfire or crackers. Posted by Picasa
