Sweets in Copenhagen (2)

The Meeting – Tuesday After breakfast, we went straight to the meeting. Of course we had our surprise for the customer with us. I was allowed to store it in the hotel fridge for the night. At first, the ladies at the reception desk were looking a little bemused, but then they were quite amiable and helped me. :-) I was really excited before the meeting. We had been there very early and had to wait a little while. But that wasn't really bad as ...[mehr]

Skiing and Sleighing

Hi there. On Saturday I went skiing again. This time I was in Oberwiesenthal in the Ore Mountains at the Fichtelberg. It is 1214 meters high but I’m only able to do cross-country skiing. In Annaberg I met Claudi normally doing downhill skiing and we went to the ski stadium. Due to the fog the scenery looked incredible. The trees were covered with white frost and tilted downwards heavily – it was really bizarre. There was also a competition in ...[mehr]

Inside the Regional Economy

Hi there. Yesterday morning I came back from Karlsruhe – very exciting and intensive days. Dr. Höhner even embraced me while saying goodbye.

It was exciting and I was nervous. Many unknown people during the get-together. But a class of champagne scared the excitement away, ...[mehr]

Glasgow Meets Chemnitz – part 1

Hi there. During the last days I accompanied a nice elderly married couple from Scotland. Imagine Mrs. Winter was born in Grüna near Chemnitz. She even knew a few German words. That was good. Before she went to school she left Germany at the age of 5. Her mother was looking for a new future in Great Britain after the war. I admire this vital force, to start a completely new life and to stand up again even when suffering a setback. Now, Mrs. ...[mehr]

Thoughts

Hi there. Today I went skiing. I packed the cross-country skis and the equipment at the back seat of my car and drove to Geyer in the Ore Mountains. There was a lot of snow fallen last night but especially in the forest the cross-country ski rails were well prepared. It was great. Indeed the sun wasn’t shining but it wasn’t cold and only a few people around. I met two blind skiers and their attendants. I said hello and they immediately joked ...[mehr]

Quotation of Picard

"Someone once told me that time was a predator that stalked us all our lives, but I rather believe that time is a companion who goes with us on the journey and reminds us to cherish every moment because they'll never come again. What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived. After all, Number One, we're only mortal." Hi there. This quotation of Jean-Luc Picard came to my mind during my last blog entry. I thought about Konstantin ...[mehr]
