Tuesday 13th


Martes 13

Abergläubische in Spanien nehmen sich nicht etwa an Freitagen, sondern 
an Dienstagen, die auf einen 13. fallen, besonders in Acht. 
Denn nach dem hiesigen Volksglauben ist es der martes 13, der Unglück bringt.

Tuesday the 13th in Hispanic and Greek culture

In Spanish-speaking countries, instead of Friday, Tuesday the 13th 
(martes trece) is considered a day of bad luck.

The Greeks also consider Tuesday (and especially the 13th) an unlucky day.
Tuesday is considered dominated by the influence of Ares, the god of war 
(Mars in Roman mythology). The fall of Constantinople to the Fourth Crusade 
occurred on Tuesday, April 13, 1204, and the Fall of Constantinople to the 
Ottomans happened on Tuesday, 29 May 1453, events that strengthen the 
superstition about Tuesday. In addition, in Greek the name of the day is 
Triti (Τρίτη) meaning the third (day of the week), adding weight to the 
superstition, since bad luck is said to "come in threes". (Wiki)

Finnisch für Anfänger:

TIISTAI = Dienstag / Tuesday / mattes
PERJANTAI = Freitag / Frieda / viernes
TAIKAUSKO = Aberglaube / superstition / superstición

PS check the last one, such a good example of the similarities
of the Englisch and Spanisch languages.

Wondering if seeing some local pigs brought us luck today?

- "Martes 13, ni te cases ni te embarques"
- "En trece y martes, ni te cases, ni te embarques, ni vayas a ninguna parte"
- "Martes, ni te cases, ni te embarques, ni de tu familia te apartes"
- "Para un hombre desgraciado, todos los días son martes"
- "En martes, ni tela urdas ni tu hija cases; ni la lleves a confesar que no dirá la verdad"

Test test


Heute das beste Mitbringsel: Corona Test!

Seriously, friends came from Germany and brought a set of self tests.

My hubby wanted to test himself after a pretty crowded
shopping experience in Decathlon sports shop in Palma.

Negative, of course.

Life is good one the island, we even had some rain.

Mercat d'Artà


Dienstag = Markttag in Artá.
Heute dürften die Gemüseverkäufer wieder in die
Markthalle. Die Renovierung hat fast ein Jahr gedauert.
Schlicht ist es geworden, soll als Mehrzweckhalle benutzt werden.
Gemüse wird hier nur ein Mal in der Woche verkauft.

Hier Fotos von heute.
Fast wie früher, vor Corona.

Für alle meine Freunde/Freundinnen die den Markt hier kennen.
Sorry, this is an insider posting, for all who have visited Artá.
Toripäivän kuvat ehkä kiinnostaa teitä, jotka olette olleet
mukava vilinässä ja jonottamassa kanatiskillä.

Nur der Hähnchenverkäufer darf noch nicht rein.

Interessante Farbe am Boden. Und noch glänzend.

Sommerlicher Markttag am 6. April 2021.

Nicht ganz so voll wie üblich im Sommer.
Und alle tragen Masken. Gut so.

Neljäs nejättä



Let's check some numerology.

When strength and efficiency are needed, it's number 4 to the rescue. 
The 4 in Numerology is a no-nonsense number with a heads-down 
approach to life and work. It is extremely dependable and lends a great 
amount of stability to a person or situation. The 4 is dedicated to 
advancing, but in a more conservative way than a progressive one. 
It sticks to what is tried-and-true instead of attempting methods that are new.

The number 4 leads with its head, not its heart, and uses this 
mental strength to build a life of service and contentment.

Canotnese (Chinese) definition for number four:

4  四 

considered unlucky since 4 is a homophone with the word for death 
or suffering 死 (see tetraphobia), yet only in the Shanghainese,
 it is a homophone of water (水) and is considered lucky 
because water is associated with money.

Numer 4 is considered as one of the most powerful angel numbers, 
claims the Angel Numers page. They also write:

There are 4 directions in the this world (South, North, West and East)
and there are also 4 elements (earth, water, air and fire). That is why
in Ancient Greece number 4 was considered as a symbol of
earthly balance.

If you are into this angel thing read more in here:

And I tell you, numbers have a meaning in the Bible, too.
Let's check that, now that we have Easter holidays.

In the Bible, number 4 means creation. 
This number directly relates to the creative ability of God. 

The earliest mention of number 4 in the Bible is in the Book of Genesis. 
During the creation week, God finished the creation of what is termed 
the ”material universe” on the 4th day. 

This internet page also refers 4 in many Bible stories, i.e.:

Number 4 also signifies the division of Jesus’s clothes after his death. 
After his death on the cross of Calvary, 4 Roman soldiers came forth 
and tore his clothes into 4 parts with each soldier taking one part.

Just surf in the internet, there are plenty of options!

Finnisch für Anfänger:

NELJÄ = vier / four

Danke / thank you / kiitos for all your Easter wishes!

Tolles Wetter in Frankfurt.

Enjoy as long as you can.

Es ist ein Wimmelbild von Menschen, die an diesem Donnerstag die Abendsonne 
genießen. Auf Decken und Tüchern, in Gruppen eng beieinander stehend, 
spazierend. Die Menschen freuen sich auf das lange Wochenende, viele dürstet 
es nach Alkohol. Der Konsum ist zwar am Mainufer wie auch an vielen anderen 
Plätzen in der Frankfurter Innenstadt derzeit wegen der Pandemie verboten, doch 
kontrolliert wird es hier nicht, ebenso wenig wie Kontaktbeschränkungen oder das 
Maskengebot. Polizei oder Stadtpolizei sind nicht zu sehen.

Gründonnerstag auf Malle.

Finnisch für Anfänger:

VIHREÄ = grün / green
