Sickness

 
Just saw on the news that nort-east of USA
is already under snow .
 
 
 
Here , since some weeks ,
we're having storms and rain .
There are also floods ,
and people killed .

 
Since 3 or 4 years , we have such problems every autumn .



A person who's ill will cough ,
vomit ,
have fever and feel cold at the same time .

 
I have the feeling that Earth is telling us something :
 
" I'm ill , I'm sick "
 
And I see Earth suffring ,
vomiting wood and plastic ,
 suffring from high temperature ,
or from cold ..

 
 
But noone seems to hear Earth crying ...

Advice

 
I found this sign in a restaurant in Germany .
I thought I may follow
some of those advice ..
 
I liked the "Try everything once" .
But "Pay with hugs and kisses" strangely did not work ..
 
What is your favorite one ?
 


Oh, by the way ,
in case you're wondering about "Eat more fish" ..
Yes, it was a fish restaurant .. :o)

Wet, Wet, Wet

 
We're having a very wet autumn here .
With a new record each week ,
almost every day ..
 
 
During 12 days ,
we had 341 mm of rain ,
wich means 3 times the normal level .
 
During tuesday , 4th ,
we had 159mm of water
 ( the record before was only 71 mm!)
 
And we're waiting for more rain next week ..
 
The good thing is that
when rain stops -sometimes-
 one can find great reflections in puddles !

About women and cars

 
When I was in Germany ,
I noticed that some places were bigger than others in car parks .
 
 
I was wondering why until I saw this :
 
 
And I thought :
Woaw ! What a great idea  !
To offer a bigger place to mothers with babies and pushchairs
is so clever !
 
Then , I noticed this :

 
Places "for women" are not as wide as places "for mothers" ,
but not as small as "normal places"  (aka "for men" ..)
 
What must we understand there ?..
What do YOU understand ?..
Clever or not so clever ?...

November , 11th

Today ,
a lot of people around the world will celebrate the memory
of the end of World War 1 .
 
 
Photo Internet
 
In Europe ,almost  every family
had at least an ancestor
who was a soldier ,
that had to fight and sometimes
died during those hard four years .
 
Men had to go to war .
Women had to stay at home ,
worrying about a husband, a son , a brother .
They also had to go to work ,
in factories ,
to help their countries .

Photo Internet


This is my grand-mother .
When the war began , she was 18 years old .
During 4 years ,
 she worked in a weapon factory in Bordeaux .
Here she's wearing her working uniform .


This post is dedicated to all those men and women ,
who had to go through things we can't even imagine .
 
With love and respect ,
we still remember you .

Big Puzzle

 
 
DomPlatz
- Cathedral Place  -
Wetzlar
 
 

 
 
" The cathedral "  is not a cathedral ,
 it's a  Church ,
combining romanesque , gothic and baroque architecture .
 

 
 
It's used both by Catholics and Protestants .
 



It was first built in 897,
 and then many times rebuilt ,
after wars , or fires ..


 
This is a strange building ,
showing several styles ,
colors ..
 
 
 

.. a kind of big assembly ,
a mysterious  jigsaw puzzle
for bodies and minds ..

Gossips

 
 
"Die drei Schwätzer"
 
-The three tchaters-
 
by Karl-Henning Seeman .
 
 
 
Since 1983 ,
 they're standing there
in a pedestrian street ,
 exchanging gossips .

 
That makes a lot of secrets to share !

Hello !

 
I'm finally back ,
after a long and stressfull trip .
No real holidays ,
but something that had to be done , and was done .
 
But even during hard moments ,
beauty can ring a bell ..
 
 
 
 
The Old Bridge over River Lahn,
in Wetzlar , Germany .

The old washhouse


No more laughs  ,
no more meetings , no more gossips..

 
No more cold hands  ..

 
From old times ,
 only remains the water
 singing
in the washhouse ..
