Shivering in Hull? (Warning to "very conservative children": Film will show painted naked people)
I just  read a book by Virginia Ironside, very amusing, about getting older (and the fun of it). Included is a chapter called: " Boring for Britain ." Now I found another hobby people can indulge in: Shivering for Britain . See: I discovered an article in t...

A Madonna for me
Dear You, last Sunday I went to a little flea market in Berlin - and was vexed to see that I was late and them all packing up*. It was half past three - and at 4 pm they have to be off. So I just did a hurried round - and then, at the very last stall, I fou...

Tired.
I'm a bit tired. I know: that is not a good way to start a post. I don't write on my blog about politics. Which does not mean that I don't care. When the Optimistic Existentialist asked in his last post: "Should we really lose faith?" I was on the optimisti...

Dear Mr. Gene Hunt,
do I need a visa now when I visit Great Britain mid of July? Of course there might be many good reasons that GB voted for the Brexit, and as in personal life I say: " Everybody does what he has to do ." I only hope things will not get complicated. Hope to s...

Countenance
Dear You,  Can you see it? At least in the shop windows of Germany there are more and more mannequins standing slumped (I can hear my late mother's voice: " Stand tall! " Not easy when you are 14 and 1.78m tall). By now I know that standing tall is a wonder...
