Today is the Zürich Marathon and the course goes right down my street in front of my apartment. Pretty cool!

Maybe the Böögg was wrong. Today's weather was spectacular and we decided to have dinner down at the lake. Nothing fancy: Sausage and beer. Ok...2 beers. 😎 What was special was how awesome the weather was, and it's supposed to be 26°C on Friday (let's call it 80°F).

Are you, to quote the CEO and founder of Facebook, a "dumb fuck?" The thing is, even if you aren't on Facebook, you probably surfed a site that harvests data for them.

It's almost impossible not to be a dumb fuck. In Zuck's world you are either him or a dumb fuck.

Twenty minutes and 31 seconds. 20:31. 1231 seconds. That's how long the Böögg lasted before it blew itself into next Winter. Good riddance!

Allegedly, the long lifetime of the Böögg means we'll have a mild Summer. We'll have to wait and see about that.

To celebrate Sechseläuten, I'm enjoying a wonderful Swiss whisky. Maybe I'll use some to toast the Böögg after his head explodes tomorrow. I encourage everyone to look up those strange words. 😀

This charity combines two of my favorite things: Veterans and Dogs.

It doesn't look like much, but this framework will become Böögg, an explosive snowman that Zürich burns next Monday at 18:00 (almost always the third Monday of April) to commemorate the death of Winter.
