A Saying from Tirol - Found in a Bishop's diary

A duck that is swinning for fun in a river is a very happy duck, but, a duck that is swimming in fat in a pan in the oven is not very happy at all!!1

Ein Spruch aus Tirol - gefunden im Tagebuch eines Bischofs

Ein Ente, die zum Spaß im Fluss schwimmt, ist eine sehr glückliche Ente, aber eine Ente, die im Fett im Ofen schwimmt, ist überhaupt nicht glücklich!!!

December Words 

December ends yet another tired and worn out year.  And, this is why December would like to believe it's still part of November. December is still dark.  But, gradually even this darkness is leaving and going elsewhere.  The longest night has already left and the light has started to turn.  But, December has to be forced to be happy.  We help it each year.  Advent and Christmas.  And we even bring our own colourful lights and much more as well.  But, nevertheless, no one really likes December. No one can wait for its end. There are, after all,  happier times round the corner.  And, much better than now.  NAJ 2023

See you in January!
