Long time no see

With reference to some earlier posts, I just wanted to mention that I saw an old acquaintance on the FT-Deutschland's webpage today (http://www.ftd.de/). Interestingly, the .jpg file is called "Mrs Dax".

Epi - a recommendation from the new "city"

Having moved back to Cologne, we noted with great pleasure that patisserie/boulangerie  EPI (www.epi-cologne.eu) offers a range of authentic French bakery products within walking distance from our new home. If you would like to taste a piece (or a drop) of France when you are in Cologne, I strongly recommend a visit at Epi in Neusser Str. 32

Back to the future

On Febraury 28th my time as a "Kraut in the City" comes to an end. I am leaving the firm to take on a new position as Legal Counsel Continental Europe for an insurance company in Cologne (Germany) the city where I worked before moving to London.

Therefore this website will be "mothballed" at today's status until it becomes clear whether I have time to continue blogging in the future.

[Yes, I did accept a double espresso as a thanks for this posting]

A God who is "all-knowing'' should know when he's being sued, even without being served notice of the lawsuit, said former State Sen. Ernie Chambers of Omaha. After all, Chambers wrote to the Nebraska Court of Appeals, courts already invoke the Almighty in oaths to witnesses that they tell the truth "so help me God. ''He said it was inconsistent for the Douglas County District Court "to take judicial notice of God in order to administer oaths and to enter an order to dismiss . . . yet simultaneously deny that the all-knowing God has notice of the petition,'' Chambers stated in written arguments submitted Monday.
