The rest of the ski gang....

... our international ski team!

Skiing and hurt muscles...

Today we came back from a wonderful ski weekend in Garmisch. We were a mixed group: two from the U.S., one from the Ukraine, one from Armenia and me :-) We had lots of fun! Though we went only for two days, it feels like a mini ski vacation. I hadn't been skiing for 16 years and that's how I am feeling now... I wasn't aware how many muscles I have. Every movement hurts --- I am soo sore... but it was worth it!

"Brother, play with me!"

"Okay, the snow flakes were out of my reach -- but I have a brother to bother...", says Jerry and chases Ben through the house!

Kids and Jerry are having fun...

...because once again we got a load of snow! The picture above shows Jerry trying to play with the falling snow flakes.... too bad that there is a window between him and the snow flakes :-)
About half of all flights have been cancelled so far today at the Munich airport, kids have "snow-free" and don't have to go to school tomorrow, and I got once again a good work out shuffling masses of snow... well, in a way it is fun if you don't havce to use your car, like a friend of mine. He is still sitting on the A8 and nothing is moving. Hope he doesn't have to spend the night there as it happened beginning of this year...

Good Bye, Lycos!

After 6 years I moved on to discover new challenges. Last week I drove to G�tersloh to say Good-Bye to my Lycos colleagues and friends. Seeing them and my name tag on my office door made me a bit sentimantal as it made me think about all the good times at Lycos. But now I choose to discover new paths for me -- I am looking forward to it! You will be able to read about my adventures in this blog -- stay tuned :-)

Snow record!

Yep, we are still getting more snow every day. Today I had first to shuffle to be able to leave the house. Within only a few hours we got about 20 cm new snow! And it continues to snow... I have never seen that much snow in Germany before! Kids won't have school tomorrow, avalanches are blocking roads!
The picture shows our garden light covererd with snow.
