Hello, hallo, bonjour, ciao, ¡Hola, Olá, Привет!, Halo, Alo, Helló, Здравей!, Namaste, 你好!, こんにちは!…

If only those Babylonian’s wouldn’t have built that Tower…

Anyways, welcome to my Blog.

In this Blog I will talk about Things that go around in my Head. It is just my personal Opinion. I do not represent anyone else but myself. I am a roman-catholic Christian and I sympathize currently with the AfD political Party, since it was led by Professor Bernd Lucke. Yet I am not a right nor a left Winger. I don’t think in such Categories anymore. I got German, Italian and Polish Ancestors.

Will always be open about different Worldviews and Opinions. So feel welcome to share your Mind. I will not judge anyone by his honest Opinion, yet Trolls will get the Kick, of Course.


To start off, I wanna present you my Hometown in a Nutshell along with a couple of Images : The Picture on the top left shows the Cathedral or “Dom” of my Hometown Osnabrück, Lower Saxony, Germany. Built by Charlemagne around 785 AD it is also the oldest Building in my Town. The actual Appearance of our “St.Peter” is from ca. 1100 AD. As a Comparison, the famous Dome of Cologne was started in 1248 AD.

Below you see our famous Town Hall of the “Westfälischer Frieden” (Westphalian Peace). The Peace Treaty that ended the “30 jährigen Krieg” (30 Years War) was signed here.

Osnabrück likes to call itself the “Friedensstadt” (City of Peace)

Beside that, my Hometown is located very close to the Teutoburger Forest, a Place where once in September 9 AD the Roman Army under Varus was defeated by the Tribe of the Cherusci under Arminius, in Germany also called “Herrmann”. The so called “Varusschlacht” had a huge Impact on the Roman Empire and stopped their Advance east of the River Rhine.

Maybe the most famous People from my Town these Days are Erich Maria Remarque (Author of “All Quiet on the Western Front”) , Felix Nussbaum (Jewish Painter), Christian Wulff (President of Germany) and Robin Schulz (Musician, DJ).

The Felix Nussbaum Haus in Osnabrück was designed by Daniel Libeskind, who also did the Masterplan for the new World Trade Center in New York.

In the End, I have to recommend my Hometown to you if you ever gonna visit Germany. It is one of the nicest Cities in our Country and even many Germans don’t know about that Fact. So don’t miss it !

If you wanna reply on one of my Posts you can do so in English or German.

In addition to that my personal Computer Mechanic (the only one i can trust) went on Holiday for 3 weeks until 10th of June. I hope that i got my System running again at the End of June. 🙂 but i could get skype to work again if there is a need to talk 😉

      1. I was stopping in to see if you had posted some recent content. I hate hearing thst you are dealing with such harsh computer failure. 😦 Summer just began for me so I will be available more. I’ll get back with you when you are able to get your gear repaired. No rush. Just checking in on my favorite German. :}
