Reingefeiert

ES WEIHNACHTET .... oder was?

Yesterday we practised ... many things ... like JOULUKALENTERI*

Finnisch für Anfänger:
JOULUKALENTERI = Adventskalender/advent calendar
JOULU = Weihnachten/Christmas
KALENTERI = Kalender/calendar - who can still claim finnish is difficult???


Last nite we had a wonderful dinner, with starters and fantastic main course including veal with lemon sauce and Kartoffelauflauf mit Sahne. Yammieyamm. Who cooked? Definitely not me, but my special best friends!

I also received presents, very nice presents, thanks to all, you were very generous!

I tell you people: get wigs and every party you have will be a KNALLER!

ABBA's Annifrid or Peppi Pitkätossu ...

Headbangers or what?!

Nicht nur Perücken halten die coolen Köpfe warm ... check the swedish furniture house for furs!


Strassenbausituation in Ostend am 10.11.08. Pretty big machines blocking the entrance to our building. Almost. This will go on another 6 months, I'm afraid.

EXPLORA

Tauchen Sie ein in die Welt der 3.Dimension, der optischen Täuschungen und der interaktiven Kunstwerke!
http://www.exploramuseum.de/cgi-bin/index.asp

We visited the Explora house in Nordend, in the Glauburgstrasse. If you have nothing else with the kids to do, go and have a tour. A lot of pictures, confusing ones, funny ones, not so many games and gadgets a we expected.


The best was the PEILISALI like in Linnanmäki in the old days ... the funny mirrors, funny indeed.


Pictures not only for children, a lot of stuff for fathers, too. Tits, tits, tits.

My new french exploring gadget: new bike! Used, of course, recycling is in!

Jazz in Fabrik

... staatlich geprüfter Augenoptiker und Augenoptikermeister ... wie bitte? Ja, der Klaus ist einer, aber er kann auch musizieren. Und coole Konzerte organisieren. Gestern auf der Bühne neben Wilson de Oliveira und ...


... Bod Degen/Piano, Günter Lenz/Kontrabass, Heith Copeland/Drums = Local Heros!


Im halbjährlichen Wechsel bieten bekannte Größen und Nachwuchsmusiker in einem kleinen, aber feinen Rahmen Jazzmusik der Spitzenklasse dar. Hierfür konnten wir den sehr reizvollen Gewölbekeller der ‘ Fabrik ‘ in Ffm. Sachsenhausen als bestens geeigneten Veranstaltungsort buchen. http://www.colibri-frankfurt.de/close2jazz_concerts/close2jazz_concerts.html


It's November, the dark and melancholic month. Luckyly enough, the first weekend of November is bright, sunny, warm.


Enjoy autumn! Hauskaa syksyn jatkoa.
