Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 16, 2016 in Internet |

This may well become an Internet legend, or it could also be just a story someone made up along the way but it goes something like this: The German supermarket chain Lidl decided upon a new advertising campaign comparing prices of products that they sell, between their own brands and those of market leaders. They […]

How To Save Your Job

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 13, 2016 in News & Opinion |

I’ve been sitting on this news story to see how it develops, and because I found it almost impossible to believe. The basic story line is this: the management of two airline companies are considering merging in order to be competitive in the marketplace. The workers in these two companies are scared that a fusion […]

Food: Read The Small Print

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 6, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I read the small print. Many vegetarians and vegans have learned that not reading the small print on the packaging of their food, unless they cook everything from raw, can lead to some unfortunate moments. Some people are very strict with their diet, with their refusal of each meat and meat products, with their need […]

Panic In The Aisles

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 2, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s that time of the year again and, unlike last year, that time of the year falls on a weekday. Happiness for those who can claim an extra day off from work, rather than complaining that a holiday day falls on a day which is free anyway, but mass panic when it comes to the […]

Rail Carriages For Women Only

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 28, 2016 in News & Opinion |

There has been some comment about new carriages for women only on German trains – I may well have mentioned it earlier in another post – and the suggestion that this has come about exclusively because of the number of refugees arriving in Germany over the last year or so. The exclusive carriages have caused […]

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 13, 2016 in News & Opinion |

There was a fire in the neighborhood last weekend, a barn next to one of the local hotels caught fire on the morning following a holiday day when many people go out and celebrate Father’s Day.

Too Much Of A Good Thing

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 12, 2016 in News & Opinion |

Germany: The Day Of Work

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 30, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Anyone can claim that Americans are strange, and be perfectly correct, but should remember that everyone in foreign countries is strange, according to their own traditions and customs. Wherever we travel, we find the curious and startling simply because things are different, and we’re not used to that. Settled in our ways, some believe everyone […]

Stuff Your Global Warming

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on April 24, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

It’s the start of spring over here, and we have had several hours of sunshine to prove it. Everywhere the flowers are beginning to bloom, the trees are taking on the first of many shades of green and there is a fresh, revitalizing smell in the air.

Fact Checking: IL News and Anne Coulter

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on March 28, 2016 in Internet, News & Opinion |
