days are long this week. today we were cordially invited to a workmate's place. he, his wife and the two dogs cared lovingly for us. an appetiser, two courses of fish and dessert were served. i've to admit that to a certain extent they really live in clover here, or like people would say in germany: living like god in france.

as one might expect particles, light and movement form interesting streaks in the eye of the beholder and of course this circumstance works also in nature.

if in the case of a nightly car drive in a snow storm also the background contains a minimum of texture the drawn winter image should be really expressive.

as stated elsewhere i've already expressed my surprise about the chosen colouration of the two new auxiliary buildings of friedrichshafen hospital and like to renew this statement: for whatever reason the medical centre for the resident doctors with attached psychiatry was designed in bright colours, whereas the also new mother-child centre is coated in olive. for me this is hardly to understand.

it's seldom that the possibility to extend the evening into the night springs suddenly into our minds. however an extensive party night is best if it wasn't planned in advance. the evening was supposed to be only about a great dinner at an indian restaurant but three different bars and some beers later we finally ended at ravensburg's finest disco - the canteen.

now time has come again. the fifth season of the year, like people say in germany for carnival, is dawning. all the coloured rags hang across the streets of the small towns and villages again. it won't be long until the party reachs our village bermatingen and instead of three kids on their way to school in the morning, a whole parade with more than 200 crazy, already drunken guys will march through the village. for me this hubbub is a pain in the a***, but of course i respect the people who conduct this tradition year after year. and sure, this too will pass, in the middle of february everything will be over again.
