A Very Good Hair Day In Berlin

Every year Berlin Sassoon salon ensures that all have a taste of Christmas fun on the last Saturday pre Christmas .
It never ceases to amaze me how creative these people are and it's a pleasure to go down and join in plus being allowed to film .
So it wasn't too difficult getting up at 7 am, then going out in bitterly cold weather to be there at 8-30am. En route it felt like Christmas , once there even more so and upon  Ieaving, the snow was falling . It still is and what can I say other than :-
"A VERY HAPPY CHRISTMAS" to all who read this blog or chance upon it.

A Day Return to Milan .

City hopping once a month with Air Berlin is proving more fun than expected .
It's my reward system for overcoming sweet stuff and where others take mini  breaks , I view my monthly journey  as a 'bite size healthy diet'. Cheaper too .
I get to cities never visited , indulge my passion for photography and undertake lots of exercise packing in as much as one can prior to the return flight .Perhaps the greatest plus is that constant reminder as to how friendly and helpful ordinary people are . Forget the media ... there is a lot of hope for our world .

GNYBERLIN Visits Manchester .

This film by 'Luci West' has made my day.
A superb YouTube film maker, she too lives in Berlin and I subscribe to her channel.
Since embedding was enabled on the video I opted to share on my blog .
Luci's hallmark is the ability to produce sensational movies each one minute long .This is no easy task .
Manchester is my home city and it's a truth that  :-
"You can take the girl out of Manchester but you can't take Manchester out of the girl "
Her work here  is as good as any Christmas present in my eyes.
I hope you enjoy viewing what is a superb city and then why not view more of Luci's work at GNYBerlin on YouTube . You will enjoy the experience.
Thank you Luci for taking me home in just one minute.

Thought For Today

It's that time of year again. Frantic shopping and what to do next. It needn't be . Don't wait for New Year try this rule of thumb. There's no better time.
"Beginning today, treat everyone you meet as if they were going to be dead by midnight. Extend to them all the care, kindness and understanding you can muster, and do it with no thought of any reward. Your life will never be the same again."

An Advent Greeting From Berlin

This is from Otto Hamborg and the Viertakter to all viewers and isteners . The most famous German Christmas Carol in blues form . Enjoy and may your advent be full of happiness .Look forward with hope to what is our world and make sure each and every one of us in what ever small fashion makes sure it stays so .For it is not the property of the powerful, or the rich it is everyone's. It is 'ours' minus nationality or politics .
