I read the book more than ten year ago, and still recall the … Continue reading Q is for Questions – A to Z Challenge April 2015

O is for Oma – A to Z Challenge April 2015

Oma, Omi, Omama short for Großmutter or Großmama, are the names that are given to Grandmothers in German speaking countries, and I have over the years found out that people with a German grandmother, or one of German origin tend to call her "Oma" too.

N is for Nothing – A to Z Challenge April 2015

No, I was not going to use the word nothing to write nothing in this post. I am actually interested in what nothing means, how the concept of nothing works. Does nothing exist? Or can nothing exist?

If I would have written nothing for this post, wellyou would all say: "her post contains nothing". … Continue reading N is for Nothing – A to Z Challenge April 2015

K is for Kakadu – A to Z Challenge April 2015

Ungefähr zu dem Zeitpunkt als ich mit der Grundschule anfing, fing ich auch an regelmäßig Radio zu hören, genauer gesagt täglich.

Wir hatten keinen Fernsehen und so war … Continue reading K is for Kakadu – A to Z Challenge April 2015
