Pensions: Planning For The Future?

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on October 21, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

Back home, and I still refer to the United States as home even having lived here for so long, many people worry about their 401K and the future. In European countries there is little need, since most have automatic pension plans for workers with contributions being taken straight out of their monthly wage packets. In […]

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 […]

Thank You For Your Concern

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 26, 2016 in Personal |

I must admit, I am moved that so many people have taken the time to contact me, and to make sure everything in my life is going well, that nothing sinister has happened, and that I have not completely disappeared from the Internet. I can put many minds to rest: everything is fine. I have […]

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 […]

Education: Staying Where You Are

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 15, 2016 in Immoral Conversations |

I had the pleasure of being able to listen to a two-part conversation recently. Two-part in that it did not take place completely on the same day, and pleasure simply because it backed up a few thoughts I have always held about education and the attitude some people have towards their lives and chances. Two […]

New Year: New Prices

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on January 2, 2016 in Publishing |

The first orders of the year are in and, since the post office was open today, out. Normally a cause for celebration; receiving orders for books on the first day of the year is a good thing, as is, of course, receiving orders for books on every other day of the year. It does, however, […]

Surrounded By The Work You Love

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on November 10, 2015 in Immoral Conversations |

I sometimes wonder what it will be like, the future. Will we still be doing much the same things as today, or will there really be hoverboards and shoes which tie their own laces? It’s not so long ago, roughly the time when I was born to put a date on it, when much of […]

Still Working On Books

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 11, 2015 in Publishing |

It may seem to some that the publishing front has been very quiet recently, but there is plenty going on in the background. I’m hoping that we will have the next title – tentatively called ‘Thoughts On Three Virtues: Love, Faith, Hope’ out at the end of this month, although there are still textual edits […]

Blogging: Getting The Routine Back

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on September 5, 2015 in Personal |

I have finally left all the hard college work behind me and can turn my attention to so many other things that I wish to do. One of these is getting back into my Blog, into this small piece of cyberspace I call my own, and doing what I had always promised to do: regular […]

May Day Occupations

Posted by Viktoria Michaelis on May 2, 2015 in News & Opinion |

I’m told that it used to be the French, back in the day, then the English took over and now, it seems, the Germans have taken the lead. Hardly a day seems to go by without one union or another calling for their members to go out on strike because the ‘management’, who they have […]
