An International Start To Advent 2012

Posted by Picasa
This weekend coming is the start of Advent and you can celebrate it in truly international style should you wish .Forget cooking ,stress etc . :-) Above you see details from the Swedish Church who are having a two day fete. It promises to be lively. The Anglican Church will treat you to 'A Very British Christmas' with much on offer. After both these events on Saturday I'll be off at night to the Gendarmenmarkt where as well as more goods,food and drink there's entertainment. Saturday 19:30 Acki Hoffmann will be playing. A weekend of fun where you may well be able to get some of your presents not to mention good food. No pushing a shopping trolley around the supermarket. Let's hear it for Sweden, Britain and Germany and most of all for Christmas.

Stuttgart For The Day

This day trip special treat surpassed my expectations. Stuttgart is a fascinating city. Here are but a few images linked using Picasa editor . An iMovie of the amazing Glocken Museum will follow. Already I wish to return to see so much more. For example :- Friedrich Hundertwasser architecture , Theodor Heuss Museum , The Otto Dix Exhibition to name but three. A tip. Good walking shoes are a must in Stuttgart . The transport is excellent but the roads steep , oh so steep .

Christmas in The Air .

On a delightful cold and misty day, to be well wrapped up was a must
Down in the city Ka De We was busy creating a winter wonderland for Advent which is almost here . Their decorations are always exquisite and it was with joy that I discovered this snowdome. Having paid and about to leave, there before me, was yet another snowglobe, different but rather lovely. Something tells me this is a Christmas to look forward to .
For any Berlin readers why not visit  St George's Church, Preussen Allee ?
1st December at 15-18H . A Very British Christmas Fete will be in  full swing with lots to eat,drink,  buy and win. I'm already in the party mood .

How To Break An Addiction

The video says it all .Many of us battle with 'addictions'. There are some who would say eating lots of sweet things is not dangerous or detrimental to health. It can be and was very much so for me . Now I've got it taped. The simple method can be applied to any addiction. It has to be stressed that the foundation for success is a) a desire to stop and b) a technique which is simple and visual. This helps one stay focused. Good luck to any viewers who try this . I'm finding it great fun .

The geekette in me couldn't let it rest so after lot of investigation ,trial and error here's the rescue .In photographic terms not brilliant .In Ms V techno terms , valuable .

Jazz Brunch In Berlin

Yes the weather's a lot cooler, days shorter but, a plus is the weekend Jazz Brunch scene has arrived. Die Eins was Sunday's venue and it's fair to say this terrific Charlie Parker number, a favourite of mine had feet a tapping. A great time was had by all.
