  1. knock-out -> corrupt

    Whenever there is money involved there is corruption. Axel Schulz was way better than Foreman but money interests made Foreman the winner. Foreman refused a refight. Then Schulz was fighting Botha. Botha was winning but he was proved to be doped with high antipain drugs. Again Schulz wasn't declared the winner. Was this time when I decided to never watch a box match again.

  2. Potatoes in the skin with Quark spiced with young herbs... Sunday was a exhibition of vintage cars and tractors at the museum for farm stuff in Wetzlar. They had the big potatoe oven running which was used to boil potatoes for pigs. Sometimes it are the easy things which taste best.

    Because of my whiplash, none of my tractors there. Planed to appear with my vintage MB-Trac used for forest work.

  3. Monday evening: Black sky, hail as big as golf balls, rivelets flooded in half an hour, ... my cousine had flooded cellars while our family was sitting on the veranda watching the nearby spectacle in bright sunshine.

    Was a bit frustrating to see the girls putting our water pumps on the Unimog and driving there while I was forced to do dispatcher at firefighter telephon because of my stupid whiplash. Insurances and laws...

  4. Gerund -> Brother Grimm

    Understanding a gerund is impossible. We had gerundium and gerundivum at latin classes. In German there is no direct equivalent. Jakob Grimm tried to define a gerundium in German. While researching for their dictionary of the german language they collected fairytales


    The Deutsches Wörterbuch was begun by the Brothers Grimm in 1838 and the initial volumes were published in 1854. Unfinished at the time of their deaths, the dictionary was finally completed by a succession of later scholars and institutions in 1961.

  5. Tomorrow -> car

    The control test after three days wasn't showing anything new. Recovering is fine. Company car is beyond repair. Tomorrow I will spend the time at a car configurator. Electro seems still a bit too early. I need 600+ km range with 500+kg load at a speed of 180+km/h. I have to transport prototype tools to customers and the tools are heavy. The 180+km/h because with this speed I can do test install and with problems I can drive back with the tool same day.

    The advantage of the diesel beast was that it had customized brakes and strengthened frame for the load.

  6. Milton -> Whiplash

    Monday at hospital because the car behind me was old and had way weaker brakes than my company car with its ceramic brakes. I was forced into an emergency braking at 120km/h when the car on the right lane before me with a trailer was hit by side winds on a high valley bridge. And all I got at hospital was tea. Milton is a tea brand here.  But I think they had Teekanne at hospital.

    One week not allowed to work but to relax at home.

    p.s.: Luckily I had a headrest installed fitting for my size. I managed to stop 10 metres before the sliding car with a family. The company car's inner frame is massive damaged. Think company will write it off.

  7. egg -> nest-egg

    Once we had to keep our hens in the barn while quarantine because of bird-flu in the district. They were laying their eggs everywhere so we started to use nest-eggs, And no, in German Nestei/nest-egg hasn't the second meaning in money business.

    Many uses:

    making a location the hens should lay their eggs


    birth control: exchange some real eggs with nest-eggs to have less chicks


    stop egg picking: some hens lay eggs into a nest not their own. they have the bad habit to pick into eggs already in the nest to better spread their own genes. They stop aftersome tries with hard nest-eggs.



    Living in a town must be so much easier.

  8. I think most people are used to the spicing of their youth. In my case local herbs depending on searson.

    Currently it is the season for wild bear-garlic. Of cause you can buy potatoe chips with bear-garlic spice:



    But with our new indoor garden we can try with fresh bear-garlic all the year:

    Marinade bear-garlic leaves with some oil in the marinade. then dry the leaves in the oven. The trick is to make the leaves dry and cross while the aetheric oils go into the thin layer of oil which covers the leaves. Remember some vitamins need oil.

    Another way is dusting the leaves and frying them, more tasty but not so healthy,


    Bärlauch - beargarlic- Leaves covered with mix of spiced flour, eggs and parmesan. Then fried:



  9. 80's -> Neue Deutsche Welle

    Begin of the 80ties cheap synthesizers allowed bands to experiment with electronic music. Many german bands were going away from singing english but in german to bring emotions better to listeners. NDW would translate as german new wave and had bands like Trio, Nena, DÖF, Peter Schilling, ..

    For me as someone who had never english at school it was a nice change and just in time when I visited a dancing school for school ball.


    This was first a NDW song, see second video
