A sampling of things that are going on and around.

One year later

Me:  “It’s cold in here. ”

D:    “I turned off the heat.”

Me:  “Ohh… okay then.”

The heater is off, but the sun has come out finally, this weekend particularly. It’s glorious.  Coming from Florida I take the sun for granted. Here, I appreciate the warm sunny afternoon alot more.  The weather today is very similar weather to when D and I arrived here a year ago.  Geez, it’s been a whole year.

We  took the train to Aachen last night for our co-worker’s birthday party at his place.  It was warm enough to sit on their patio, the first time this year they got to use it, and it was quite nice. Met a few people I knew from before and more of his family since they are all from this area.

Tried a German drink for the first time called Bionade, I guess it has become popular throughout Europe and getting popular in the U.S.  It’s a lightly fruit flavored drink, what makes it special is that it is created in a method that is similar to  beer, with malt.  The creator isolated a strain of bacteria capable of converting the sugar that normally becomes alcohol into nonalcoholic gluconic acid, which he used to ferment the new drink.   Anyway, it’s nice.  I don’t like sodas, but this would be a good mixer or just alone like we had it last night.
