Early autumn

I got a few photos from last Sunday that I’d like to show you – maybe just the right thing for a dull and grey public holiday like today:

And at the end the newly renovated “new historic” Pfaffenhofen town hall – in the colors of its beginning, not the white from in between – in a wide-angle view from below:

A radio-controlled clock is wrong…

Apart from the fact that in (not only) my opinion we could do without these clock changes – then, though, without the one in autumn, I prefer it when it gets dark later –:

If a radio-controlled clock is programmed so stupidly that it checks for the correct time only once per day at 00:00 (12:00 am) (even though this makes the programming process easier since that’s the situation after inserting new batteries) and thus is wrong almost the entire Sunday, this, I think, really doesn’t indicate a thoroughly working and sufficiently thinking manufacturer.

At least temperature and pressure-based forecast seemed to be correct… But, well, it was only TCM, the private brand of discounter Tchibo. :mrgreen:


March 1 – meteorological beginning of spring…

The birds chirp and tweet…
Trees and flowers start to sprout…
A gentle breeze is in the air…

Then I woke up.

The storm blows, thunder and lightning, sleet patterig against the windows, and after it calmed down a little, it’s “only” snowing.

I should go back to bed and continue to dream.

Clock changes are unpopular / Advent’s Advent

The result of my last poll here in the sidebar on the right about the clock changes for daylight saving time: a vast majority of 83% (of 24 participants) want to do away with the changes and keep summer time, so that it’s longer bright in the evening. In detail:

The next poll is already ready: Do you have an Advent wreath (or will you have one starting first Advent)?
