What is your favorite go to beverage?  Water, coffee, tea, coke, soda (non-alcoholic)

Can you change a car tire?

What’s that? I once arrived at work and one of the tyres looked like it would explode. Luckily a colleague was the boss of the local road service agency and he organised someone to come and change the tyre. Apparently it would have exploded if it had not been changed. I always thought that sort of thing was done by garages or you phoned for someone to do it for you.

Are you a listener or talker?

That would be a good subject for a conversation with Mr. Swiss, on the other hand let’s forget it, we both have different opinions on the subject. He always listens when I talk.

Would you rather have no internet or no cell phone?

I had an interesting conversation with a guy in a train today. He plugged his laptop into the socket in the train above where he was sitting and was online all the way on the train. As we were leaving the train I asked him if he would mind if I asked a question. He was very friendly being spoken to by an elderly grey haired lady and very polite.

“When you plug in your computer in the train, are you direct in Internet” was my question.

He laughed and smiled and said “forget it, no chance. The Swiss railways only deliver the plug. I am connected to Internet via my cell phone”

And I should choose between the two – I do not think so. They go hand in hand.

Daily Prompt: Dream

Sunset over Feldbrunnen

This is one of my skies I had a dream about. I though the colours were great, really impressive and so I sent a cyber message to a guy called Zeus who had an advertisement in the newspaper “Order your favourite sky with me, immediate delivery if Jupiter agrees”  web site: I decided this would be ideal. I found the web site  and described what I wanted and did a photoshop of the photo which I include. I thought this sky would be great. Zeus answered straight away and said he did not have the colour in his celestial paintbox, but had a contact over at known as Jupiter, that might be able to help.

I tuned into and got the same answer, but said he was working on it to see what could be done. In the meanwhile it would be full moon and probably Diana aka Luna could be of help with the colouring, as well as Selene, who could all be reached with the e-mail address greek.roman.looniemoonies@roman-greek-cooperative.skycolour. I sent a mail asking for help:

“Dear Moon Goddesses,

Enclosed please find the copy of a sky I had a dream about. I would very much like to see this in reality, perhaps tomorrow evening around 9 o’clock so that I could be ready with my camera to take a photo.  Please note, I do not have to have a moon in the photo, so perhaps you could organise a small cloud to cover it until I have made my photos.

Thanking you for you kind consideration

regards – Mrs. Angloswiss”

I then received the following answer:

“Dear Mrs. Angloswiss

We have taken your request into consideration. It seems that Jupiter and Zeus as more into grey and black tones at the moment, with a dash of blue in between. They are also very busy forming animal shaped clouds, having received a new colouring book and steam machine. We would be very glad to be of assistance, but we suggest you just continue to dream up a few new designs. We are doing our best currently to keep the sky colour free, and are unable to comply with your request for a cloud to cover the moon. Due to re-organisation of the responsibilities, this has know been handed over to Thor at http://www.thunder.crash. It might be glad to include such a red sky before organising his next thunder happening. We passed on your mail to his department. Unfortunately it was singed at the edges by a ligtening bolt, but we had a copy in one of our clouds.

Thor is quite busy as it seems to be the thunder season, but says he would oblige if you could perhaps place the remark “by copyright of Thor” on your photo, especially when uploading to various web sites. He finds that there are too many cheap copies of his work in circulation at the moment, due to it being the human firework season.

We trust to have been of assistance. If your problems continue you could perhaps contact your local politician, they are very good and having dreams about things in the sky.

I  decided it is better to sleep and not to dream, it is less confusing.

Daily Prompt: Dream

Good Morning


Yes, it’s raining again and my hostas are collecting raindrops. Naturally today is a day when they are letting me out in the pouring rain, so it will be a quicker good morning than usual (everyone breathing a sigh of relief, not having to read through pages of “what happened in the Angloswiss territory). Yes I am again taking the train, but this time a little further.

I am off to breathe the city air of Zürich, just a 1 hour train ride from where I live. No, I am not taking the car, I am not so good at driving on motorways full of the tourist attack on the Swiss country, I prefer to relax in a train. I am even travelling 2nd class. It has become fashion, with various reductions, to travel 1st class which costs almost twice as much. Our trains are comfortable. I have a special permit to pay half price everywhere on the swiss railway (at a cost).

I will be meeting a WordPress online friend, never seen before, who happens to be in Switzerland on holiday from the States and will naturally be shooting photos of the reunion. We only know each other online with likes and hellos and reading each other’s interesting online blogs and today is the day when we meet in real life. I am quite looking forward to it. We have already spoken on the Facebook messenger. Mr. Swiss decided last week that Facebook is not for him (for the second time) and he left. Facebook gives you an option and only throw you out completely after a week or two, asking first of all if you really want to leave this paradise of expressing love for your mother, father, cousins, dog and cat and watching people make fools of themselves in various videos. There is just one disadvantage of leaving this social paradise today. It has the messenger, which means cheap communications over distance. I reminded Mr. Swiss and so he is back again.

And now I really must go, things are waiting to be done. My train leaves the station at 10.30 approximately. Oh, the excitement of going places and seeing things. Here is a photo of the entrance to our wonderful national Swiss railway station of Solothurn. I am not sure if I will back today, but most probably as I am to return to my nest some time around 5-6 in the evening.
