Share Your World – April 2, 2018

What was or is your favorite cartoon?

It was and still is Beavis and Butthead. I even had a t-shirt with the two guys on it that my colleagues in the office, when I was a working woman, had specially printed for me. I love those two, such dry humour. It was a shame that I did not have a digi camera at the time. The t-shirt was washed so much, that the picture eventually slowly disappeared.

Which cooking utensil (other than the usual pots and pans etc) would you miss the most?

Turning the Rösti (5)

My nice non stick frying pan for my Röschti, Swiss potato dish

Would you dare to sleep in haunted house overnight?
 Road to Solothurn 29.03 (13)

This is just a house I happened to take a photo of last week. Our area is full of houses like this. I do not believe in ghosts, but you cannot avoid a funny feeling in some places. When I was fresh in Switzerland, I stayed for a week-end with a friend who worked in Basel in a restaurant. She had a room in an enormous house with the restaurant included and they let out many rooms. I spent the night in an empty room that no-one was using which did not surprise me. It was a very big room with  high ceiling, just my bed in a corner and otherwise not very inviting, and a musty smell to go with it. I had  a funny feeling all night and did not get much sleep. OK, no ghosts, but the imagination can sometimes play tricks.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week? 

Geese 30.03 (1)

I enjoyed getting out and about again, even if only in my wheelchair. The weather was OK, and I could occupy myself with taking some photos. We have so many interesting places to see in our village. The stables not only have horses, but a lot of various bird life. The geese are always in the front row

    • The spook story goes further. The restaurant was owned by two brothers and a sister. I remember I ate lunch in their private dining room with the family. About half a year later one of the brothers was murdered in a men’s toilet in Basel.


  1. I have not done this meme yet. Maybe I should. I answer all the questions anyway.
    ‘The Simpsons’ is my favorite cartoon. They are from Oregon!
    I love my usual pots and pans because some were my mother’s wedding gifts, and others were made in my paternal-paternal great grandfathers foundry; but if they do not count, I would say that my maternal-maternal great grandmothers measuring cup is my favorite cooking utensil.
    My former home that I lived in the longest was haunted. My editor at the time featured it in an article about haunted sites around town. I slept quite well there for sixteen years. The new movie ‘Winchester’ is about a famously haunted, and crazily built mansion nearby in San Jose. I would be pleased to sleep in such a historic home.
    The weather made me smile. It was so perfect for Easter. I did not think of our lack of rain. I just enjoyed it for a while.
