  1. Mekong, you're right about the Thai population. The pace of vaccination is very slow there and lags behind the announcements of the Siamese government. My contribution refers to the incoming tourists and holidaymakers. If they can prove that they are "clean", vaccinated, not contagious, and have Corona health insurance, millions of tourists can enter. Why not?
  2. I don't want to bore anyone with my illness story. My blood pressure continues to be much too high; despite taking blood pressure-lowering medication regularly. It is therefore doubtful whether I will ever come to Siam again ..... my topic today: How will be the coming high season from around October/November 2021 to early April 2022? What decisions will the Thai government make in the coming weeks and months concerning international tourism? I suspect that Thailand will reopen the borders to international tourism from October/November 2021. Tourists entering the country will have to fulfil the following requirements: 1. they must be fully vaccinated - at least twice, better three times. 2. they must have health insurance that also covers corona illness; i.e. also the costs for a quick return trip to the home country or the cost-intensive treatment in a Thai hospital. 3. incoming tourists must show a negative test taken immediately before departure. I believe that only under these conditions the Thai government can revive international tourism. But these entry conditions will deter many holidaymakers/tourists. Many will prefer to stay at home under these circumstances. Final comment: The Corona crisis is far from over. The vaccines are nowhere near as effective as hoped. Even vaccinated people can fall ill - although not severely - and they can transmit the virus. Nasiadai - Hamburg/Deutschland Guest at Happy Bou and Joy's Paradise, Jomtiem - Soi Welcome
  3. My health has been very bad for a good two weeks. My heart and circulation are going crazy. The blood pressure rises to over 200; to 220 and 233 even. Today I am experiencing a completely normal summer day. There are no special features and no excitement. It is a wonderful summer evening, the heart starts pumping wildly as if out of the blue. The blood pressure rises to 200. What is this? I am a notorious hypertensive all my life; an inheritance from the two families I come from. The many medical examinations I have undergone in the last few weeks have yielded no results. I am a perfectly healthy man, no diseases, no cancer, no other medical abnormalities. Only the tendency to high blood pressure. This constant high blood pressure led to a stroke 8 years ago. The doctors want to "readjust the blood pressure" through a certain medication. "Readjust the blood pressure", that is the phrase the doctors always repeat. I take my blood pressure lowering medication regularly; now a medication in a slightly higher dose. But I hardly feel any blood pressure lowering effect. Medicine, the art of medicine, has reached its end. They can't help me. I am out of treatment.
  4. Nach einer saft- und kraftlosen Niederlage (0:1 gegen Frankreich), einem großartigen Sieg gegen Portugal (4:2), einem blamablen Unentschieden gegen Ungarn ist die deutsche Mannschaft gegen mittelmäßige Engländer ausgeschieden. Die einstmals erfolgreiche und gefürchtete deutsche Nationalmannschaft ist international als "die Mannschaft" endgültig in der Zweitklassigkeit angekommen. Das ist das schonungslose Ergebnis der letzten zwei großen Turniere. 2018 in Rußland das Ausscheiden bereits in der Vorrunde und nun die krachende Niederlage gegen brav und bieder spielende Engländer. After a sapless and powerless defeat (0:1 against France), a great win against Portugal (4:2), an embarrassing draw against Hungary, the German team was eliminated against mediocre English. The once successful and feared German national team has finally arrived internationally as "die Mannschaft", as "the team" in the second division. That is the ruthless result of the last two major tournaments. In Russia in 2018, they were eliminated in the preliminary round, and now they suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the well-behaved, of medoicre English. That's it!
  5. I do it in Deutsch and in English Ich gratuliere dem englischen Team zu diesem deutlichen Sieg über eine ideenlos spielende deutsche Mannschaft. Der Bann ist gebrochen. Seit dem letzten Sieg gegen Deutschland 1966 hat es in wichtigen Spielen nur Niederlagen gegeben. Nach 55 Jahren erlöst dieser Sieg über Deutschland eine ganze Nation. Ich gratuliere noch einmal recht herzlich und wünsche dem englischen Team viel Erfolg für die weiteren Spiele. I congratulate the English team on this clear victory over a German team that played without ideas. The spell has been broken. Since the last victory against Germany in 1966, there have only been defeats in important matches. After 55 years, this victory over Germany redeems an entire nation. Once again I congratulate the English team and wish them every success in their future matches. Well done, England!
  6. One more addendum. A ridiculous misjudgement!!!!!!!! World Cup 2010, Round of 16: Germany's 4:1 almost became a minor matter as the referee makes one of the most massive misjudgements in recent World Cup history - take a look for yourself (yes, this goal was indeed not given). My opinion: It was a just compensation for the Wembley goal in 1966. The referee must have had this "goal" in his memory and thought that there should not be a second goal of this kind against Germany. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o5QlBHF6ib8
  7. A few reflections, a few memories and reflections on the games between England and Deutschland. Deutschland will meet England in the European Championship round of 16. In the overall balance (36 matches), England is currently ahead with one win. But what is a record compared to all the stories this duel has to offer? And there will be new stories, nice ones and not so pretty ones. Maybe already on coming Tuesday 27. June 2021. Excitingly, among other things, while Deutschland is England's footballing "nemesis", the reverse is not true; a case of "unrequited hatred", so to speak, which makes it all the more painful for the English who are in nemesis mode. England vs. Deutschland has been a classic at least since 30.07.1966 - the non-goal of the century. I heard the final on 30 July 1966 live on a bicycle on a small transistor radio. There were two of us on a holiday trip through northern Germany; a school friend and I; it was summer holiday. When Wolfgang Weber scored the equaliser in injury time, I landed in the ditch for joy. The final of the 1966 World Cup between England and the Bundesrepublik Deutschland started furiously. After 20 minutes, the score was already 1:1 with goals from Helmut Haller (12th) and Geoff Hurst (18th). Twelve minutes before the end of normal time, England took the lead through Martin Peters, but German defender Wolfgang Weber equalised in injury time with his first international goal. The legendary Wembley goal came in the 101st minute. Hurst shot the ball at the bottom of the crossbar, from where it bounced vertically downwards before being headed out of bounds by Weber. Swiss referee Gottfried Dienst ruled it a goal after consulting linesman Tofiq Bəhramov. Hurst went 4 :2 up in the final minute of the second half of extra time and although the goal would have been irregular under normal circumstances, with spectators already on the pitch, the final score remained 4 :2 after extra time. England thus became world champions for the first and only time. I abbreviate the long history of German-English encounters. Semi-final 1996 at Wembley Stadium Germany England: Gareth Southgate - he gave the tragedian of Shakespearian greatness 26 June 1996, Wembley Stadium, European Championship semi-final. We witness one of the most regal, audacious, proud and beautiful cheers of the 90s. Just take a look for yourself. It was Gareth Southgate who missed the decisive penalty, the current coach of the England team. And there were the heartbreaking tears of the unforgotten Paul Gascoigne … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EiE7eLWI_M I cut a long story short: Last stop to the 1990 World Cup title Andreas Brehme in the 60th minute; Gary Lineker in the 80th; and then a penalty shoot-out, which the Teutons win and thus enter the World Cup final for the second time in a row; these are the hard data of 04 July 1990. Afterwards Gary Lineker said the famous sentence: Football is a simple game. Twenty-two men chase a ball for 90 minutes and at the end, the Germans always win.
  8. Italy - Österreich Round of 16 A great, rousing game. The Italians dominated the first half. They created a number of scoring opportunities against bravely defending and sacrificially fighting Austrians. The first half was about 60 : 40 in favour of the Italians. The Austrians were much better in the second half. They continued to be strong in the duels, they put up their fighting spirit against the technically superior play of the Italians. Thus, the Austrians created and "earned" a few very good scoring opportunities. One headed goal was only just offside. It is almost impossible to score a goal against this Italian team. In extra time it continued to be a game on a high technical level on the part of the Italians and the Austrians not only fought in their usual way but showed hardly any signs of exhaustion or physical weakness. They also managed a few surprising moves and combinations. Then the Italians scored their two goals and everyone thought that the Austrians would now give up or go down two gears. No, they turned it up a notch and even scored a goal. Résumé: The best game of the European Championship so far. Although the Italians were not entirely convincing, they are on their way to the final, it seems to me. Football greetings from summery Deutschland
  9. I haven't been in touch for a long time. In the meantime, the sun has reached its northern tropic and is now on its way towards the equator again. We now have high summer and the most beautiful and brightest time in Germany. The European Football Championship has started and we are already in the round of 16. As an old white man, I have a lot of time and watch every game on TV. Here are a few short match reports from tonight 26 June 2021 - two round of 16 matches. Denmark Wales Round of 16 4 : 0 if I remember correctly. The Welsh were overtaxed in terms of playing technique and football tactics. They are actually second class internationally. They made it relatively easy for the cheerful Danes (the Danes were in the vein; can you say that?) to score four goals. Wales is the second British team to be eliminated and I have the feeling that England will be knocked out by the Deutschen next Tuesday. 5555
  10. และนี่คือฤดูร้อน ครั้งแรกในชีวิต Und es ist Sommer, das erste mal im Leben --- And it's summer, the first time in life as the German-Romanian (a Transylvanian Saxon) Peter Maffay once sang over 40 years ago. A hit, an evergreen, to this day. What is this song about? It's about fucking, simple as that. Es war ein schöner Tag Der letzte im August Die Sonne brannte so Als hätte sie's gewusst Die Luft war flirrend heiß It was a beautiful day The last in August The sun was so hot As if it knew The air was shimmering hot So far, so good. Then what happens? Then I met her and looked into her eyes I was 16 and she was 31 And I didn't know much about love She knew everything … I cut a romantic story short And the boy Took her hand shyly But as a man I saw the sun rise And it was summer Yes, it is summer. Here we have Mr. Peter Maffay singing “Und es war Sommer” Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-DLE_1SQsj0
  11. Wir haben Sommer in Deutschland We have summer in Germany หน้าร้อนที่เยอรมัน My flowering rhododendron - a true splendour of blossoms Early June 2021 - summer is finally here - the prolonged cold spell until the end of May is over. The English high-pressure area, which brought us warmth and sunshine for about a week, has long since departed. Now the lows from the North Atlantic are back, bringing rain, thunderstorms and temperatures between 15 and 19 degrees here in Düsseldorf One is modest. But now we have the brightest and lamest days of the year. The sun is approaching its northern tropic, the Tropic of Cancer, and that means between 16 and 18 hours of daylight and brightness for the countries and regions to the north. I sit outside on the lawn until 22.30 and read a book. In the morning, shortly after four, dawn gradually begins to break. Sure, the British, the Scandinavians and the Canadians know this phenomenon. I love this time of midsummer. It is the most beautiful time of the year for me. It is June and that means we have summer now. Yes.
  12. Human life is full of waiting: We wait on different levels, in different forms, with different kinds of consequences and burdens. Every one of us knows waiting, which is why it can be said succinctly: Waiting is an everyday experience and waiting is one of the most elementary and most frequent mental experiences. And waiting is also a complex event that is influenced by many cultures. * The landlords of Pattaya are desperately waiting for guests; guests with a bulging travel fund, thirsty and eager to drink, spendy like a Saudi oil prince, buying lots of ladydrinks and horny like the neighbour's dog, so that every day all barmaids are barfined. * Mr Parky (a very special friend of mine, a local expat living in Pattaya) is waiting for Jimi Hendrix and the good Lord. * Mr Baldylocks (a friend of mine from Pattaya) is waiting for the chemical industry to develop a hair restorer that will turn his current bald head into a thick tropical rainforest. * Vpi78 (an American acquaintance) is waiting for a medical miracle. Maybe it will grow back all the teeth he has lost in the last decades. Natural "third teeth", so to speak. * I am waiting for the end of the Corona crisis and that in late autumn I can escape from the horrible Teutonic autumn and winter and return to my lonely beach and Jomtiem in Soi Welcome. We see, man is a waiting creature. One connoisseur succinctly asserts, "All human wait, and in the fullest sense of the term, only human wait." Waiting is generally understood as future-oriented dwelling in view of a certain expected end of a - short or long, pleasant or unpleasant, voluntary or prescribed - period of time. So: whoever waits is expecting something, e.g. the tax assessment from the tax office, the end of the Corona crisis, the new Rolling Stones album or the conversion of Mr Buffalo Bill to a peaceful and polite board member. I greet you from the sunny and warm Stoffeln beer garden in Düsseldorf.
  13. Aa view of the sea of blossoms in May We have been putting up nesting boxes for many years. Every year in spring, from the end of March / April, they are occupied by pairs of titmice. Here is a nest box hanging in a cherry laurel tree. This wooden nest box is occupied for the first time. I think a pair of siskins or a wren is nesting inside. For the last two years I have been desperately walking around my garden in April with this nest box, holding it high in the air with my left arm, waving it around and shouting: "Dear robins, siskins, wrens for this nest box I ask no rent, no lease. It is free this year. Yet this prime property is safe, comfortable and in a prime residential location like a Manhattan penthouse flat on Central Park or on the Thames in downtown London!" Now finally it has worked! I am happy! The days in May after the Ice Saints --- Waiting for Summer The month of May was unanimously too cold. Compared to the long-term average temperatures, this May was about 2.5 degrees too cold, according to the meteorologists. But then on 24/25 May the weather changed. It is hard to believe: a powerful high-pressure area moved from the British Isles towards Central Europe and Scandinavia, dominating our weather until today, 2 June. Blue skies, sunshine and temperatures from 22 degrees to 26 degrees today, 2 June. Who would have thought that? A small miracle has actually occurred. Something really good has come from Britain. None of the usual lows with thick grey clouds and rain as usual, no Harris bombers bringing death and destruction, no new even more dangerous Coronavirus variant, but warmth and sunshine. So you see, British people, there you go! The wait for summer is over. It's here and it's delighting us with summer temperatures, blue skies and sunshine.
  14. Whitsun 22 May to 24 May 2021 - a disaster weather-wise. Last night, Saturday 22 May, the "Tagesschau" (TV news at 8 p.m.) on German TV reported on relaxations in the Corona pandemic. Innkeepers are allowed to open again at Whitsun. A short report was shown about the outdoor gastronomy at the St. Pauli Landungsbrücken in Hamburg. Here in Hamburg harbour yesterday there was a strong and very cold wind and at best 11 degrees - and that on 22 May! It is terrible! People wear winter clothes because of the cold and the wind! These are pictures from the "Tagesschau" of 22 May. The world, science and the public are talking and discussing about global warming. All I can say about this spring and early summer 2021 is that we are not experiencing warming, but the world is heading towards a new ice age. Greetings from a shivering Nawhgab
