RDP Thursday: Disposable

At the moment I wish that my complete cellar room was disposable. The best would be to start a fire and let is burn. It would save me a lot of problems, although the neighbours might not be so happy. We have a cardboard collection every 2-3 months. It used to be a couple of boxes. However we now live in an online time, meaning that just order it on the computer, telephone or whatever and you get it by post – in a box of course. Not only me, but the whole estate, town and village are doing it. It has spread like wildfire and the men that collect it now need a whole day instead of a couple of hours. Luckily my son puts it outside. On the same day there is a paper collection, mostly newspapers. I do not have the daily newspaper any more. It is too expensive and I can read what I want on the computer, although I still get the stupid advertising material which I do not want.

This collection will be on Tuesday next month. OK, but a week later we will have the grand disposable finale when you can put anything outside to be collected: and I again have enough to fill half a truck. This time I have no help from the son, he is working but my lovely cleaning lady, who does more than just clean, will be calling past to help me. When Mr. Swiss left I began to dispose of things no longer necessary. He was a master in keeping things just in case when he bought a new one. I cleared the apartment of unwanted, cleared the hobby room more or less and now it is the cellar that is ready for disposable. I have found things I did not even know we had. Four suitcases, about 6 bags, 3 loudspeakers just to name a few objects, not forgetting a cat door and a king sized broken chinese vase. I will not mention the various items that cannot just be thrown out but are taken to a special place for disposal. Luckily I have a helpful neighbour with a car and she will be helping me to take it there. Will this never end, I just want a nice neat undisposable place to live.

Yes modern life has become disposable.

RDP Thursday: Punctuate

I think the skx gods where trying to tell me something this morning, they used punctuation everywhere. OK, I just had to use my photos.

As you know or may not know, I am a person of many languages, none of them perfect. Even my English is basically cockney, but one thing I discovered. The German language would be nothing without its commas in the right places. Every clause has to have a comma, it is part of the language. Although we do not speak comma it is imagined as you talk, at least I imagine it. Not to mention every noun beginning with a Capital Letter, whether a Name or an Object it has to have a Capital Letter. I got so used to it that I ever write English with Capital Letters in the wrong Places.

RDP Thursday: Field Day

I suppose a field day is something special. An occasion to celebrate. The Christmas days are upon us and the usual customs arriive. This building is our old arsenal where the old weapons are kept. It is also a building which has 24 windows, useful for decorating at Christmas to make a Christmas Calendar. However this year we are saving on natural elements such as electricity. It has all become too expensive. It seems that our electricity, and also gas, is no longer so available as it was, so we have to save in Europe. The Christmas calendar iis not avalable this year and Christmas illuminations have been reduced to a minimum. It seems that the boss in Russia, Mr. Putin, decided to have a war with the Ukrain and turned off the gas and electricityfor Europe.

It does not bother me so much. I now live alone with my son and can do what I want. I do not celebrate Christmas and have no decorations at home. It neither bothers me or my son. I no longer need the Christmas stress. The only contribution I make is to eat good food.
