Final holiday trip

Claudia booked a surprise-trip to the Adria and we got a nice place in Jesolo; until now it looks nice in the internet, it is the Hotel Christian. Let's see, what it will give to us and how such a trip to the Adria will be for me. I decided, not to sleep, because we start at 5.30 in Mötz. Normaly I wouldn't get up at this time, so I work on the PC, make breakfast and look forward to some fine days.

Last Gig

The last day brought the best place we ever had. A little road-crossing in the old town, via San Remo / inizio via delle Volte. Almost all visitors had to pass our location. We thought our amplifier was to big for the place, but it was ok. All men heared us, although there were loud groups in the neighbourhood. We sold almost all of our CDs and the people spent a lot of money. Unfortunately a thunderstorm caused us to change the location to an arch 20 meters away. There we gave a familiar last gig for those who had no choice. They had to listen to us. Finaly we had a beer there, transported the instruments to the hotel and took a last sit-in at the Tiffanys. Senza arraculi. A fast packing, 4:30 h driving and Innsbruck was arrived. All in all a fine week with planning of the future of the Trio Infernal . Let's see what the next year will bring.

Piazza Trento Trieste

The waiting was it worth. Our place for yesterday for afternoon and evening was in front of MELbookstore on one end of the great place. And moreover: our neighbours were all playing or acting at normal noise. Spanish girls, Mark Gillespie, and Mediterranean singers, which only amplified the voice. The people came and stopped and listened. Most times young families or rusta-haired hippies. Strange. A mid-aged lady bough a CD. But those who stopped listened a long time. One Hippie group stayed the whole session. I found a method to play although I have a bubble on a righthand-finger(!) All in all it was a good session and we all had fun playing. 'hau.

First gig

After waiting for 2 days we finally had good luck. Marcella had a really fine place for us: in the Rotondo Foscini near the castle. We set up our instruments and startet playing from 6 p.m. til 7.30 p.m. There where a lot of people stoping, listening, some where lying in front of us. Everything went fine. We earned some money, not much. But for us it was a practice session to test our playing in reality. Harping was fine, singing was fine, we were happy. After a short break for lunch we came back to the Rotondo and found a brasilian invited group in front of us with amplifiers of about 300W. We even couldn't hear ourselfs. Some of the staff tried to give us another place, but we were frustrated, packed our instruments to the hotel and ended up at Tiffanys. The last beer was payed by the house. And Rebecca was sorry for the complication and said, that today we will get a better place. And Marcella heared of it and was sorry. They all know us. 'alve.

Time in Ferrara

Yesterday another day went by with the sentence: "Sorry, it is impossibile for you to play today". Well, we went arround and listened various artists. We decided to have a good dinner and had one. But I think it was the fifth restaurant, where we finaly found a place. While walking after the dinner through the town I took a Phonography from the town. So you can listen to the sound of buskers festival if you want. The bar, our bar, was filled, so we closed the day at the piazza municipale. The serving girl there is from Berlin and doesn't understand "Heuer" in the meaning of "Dieses Jahr". Strange.

Internet cafe

What a strange Internet cafe: There is no problem to install putty and work with it. A fine feature.

Arrived in Ferrara, fine to see old places again. And it is funny to talk about places where we have been last year. The wheater is fine, 25 degrees, lightly scattered sky. Gregoa blogs via sms. Yesterday we slept until midday, and then from 6 to 9 p.m. Marcella is here again. We stood in the queue and waited for almost an hour, only to hear that we cannot register yesterday and we cannot play. Hmm. Maybe today. New this year: much more drums and still 3 other harps but no fingerpicking guitarists. But we still have found favourite bars for breakfast, for having a snack and for aftersitting. And I have a new thing: a guitarholder that is looking forward for working for me. Well

Zams is nice

This night I spent in the hospital of Zams. As I was on my way home from Gregor, something strange happened on the highway. You know the feeling short before you have a black out? Well, at 120 km/h not fine. The breath was flat as a screen and the blood-pressure high as a mountain. I drove on the sideway of the highway. The fingers rattled as a snake and it was hard to dial 144. "Im Augenblick sind alle Leitungen besetzt, bitte haben sie etwas Geduld..." unbelievable. 120. ok, they call the doctor. When the doctor came: pressure: 210:160, pulse 150. oops. I got medicin, and after 5 minutes it was ok. But I had to stay at the hospital. They took a look at my blood: everything ok. sugar, enzyms, cholesterin. Their diagnosis: Panik-attack. Thanks.

Today we made a hike through the rosenberg-schlucht in Imst. Wonderful. The sights are wonderful, it is not long to walk but very impressive. You should take the chance of walking there and back again in about 2 hours.

Wood for the oven

We bought 1 m^3 wood and 50 packs of woodbricks for winter. When there is no change in weather, we will have no wood to burn when winter starts.

in the heat of a summers night

Obsteig is at an altitude of 1000m. Today this was the hight of the deepest clouds. I was wearing shorts and t-shirts. The temperature was falling to 5 degrees C. The air was wet from the clouds. Sight was about 100 m. So I thought by myself: A warm November day with daylight until 9 p.m. is quite good. Unfortunately it is August, 16th. Even the cold beer after the work (helping to make a horce-fence) was not that refreshing.

Unfortunately the water collected from the carport is contamined with something from the "Dachpappe". It has foam and looks brown. Looking at the 200 l pot offers a sight, as I would brew beer.

Catans Spacetravellers

I have a card game for 2 Person: Spacetravellers of Catan. I have got it 2 years ago. Today was the first time we played it. And: surprise! Claudia liked it. Strange. Because "The Settlers of Catan" is not a game she enjoyes. On TV she likes Kottan, Tohuwabohu or Time Bandits. But she said, High Fidelity is a boring Film, that she never would watch. So after 1 hour we canceled watching the Film.

The fence door

Today I almost finished the fence door. The glue is hard, the eye-screws are mounted. All I need is the steel cable to fix the net. I think it will be finished, when I will be at OBI the next time. So be patient for pics.

WCG-1 V1.0

Here he is, the long expected amplifier:
WCG-1 (WeliChrisuGregor 1.Versuch). It's ok as amplifier for a drum-computer or a MiniDisk-player. But he still makes troubles with my guitar. It sounds like "scratching" when playing the deep notes. But as the name says: 1. trial. Maybe on our next concert you will enjoy the sound :-)

To tell you: I have got a right watercolour-brush. And I have a board to put the sheet on. And I have appropriate watercolours. The next thing I need is time to paint. There are so many things in my head I want to paint, so wait until you can see the paintings. I also bought the last missing cable and the screws for the amplifier WCG-1. In the next days I will try to set it up. You will read here more.

Fence door

Today I wanted to finish the fence door and was on a tour through Telfs to get the parts. I got the hinge, I got the srews, I got the door buckle, I got the eye-screws for fixing the net to the door. But there was no steel cable to fix the net to the eye-screws available in Telfs. Damnd. I have to wait until Tuesday to get it in Innsbruck. What a village Telfs is. *sigh*

Today I made a tour with the bike with Lea. We were away for almost 2 hours. Klamm-castle - Badesee - Obermieming - Gschwent - back home. A short break at Maurer for an ice-cone. Each of us worked out about 1500 kcal. But the ice-cone relevates that. But we had a lot time for talking and joking. I should make that more often. Driving alone isn't that funny.

It was a fine afternoon. We met at "Mesnerhaus" and decided to drive to the part of Obsteig called "Wald". Then we went about 10 minutes with our equipment and started painting. Todays theme was "Watercolour". I bought a watercolour-set for 13.- EUR and testet it. Great. All I wanted was: Sitting in the nature, silence, peace, and a wonderful sight. So evolved my first real watercolour-painting. Cereals in the foreground, the "Grünberg" in the background and "Wald" in the middle. Fantastic. Not the painting, but the scenery and the location and the feeling. I have no experience with watercolour-paintings, but I think I would like it. But first I have to explore the technique. I think I will buy an appropriate brush. Not just a Jolly-brush. What I most liked was the peace and quiet of the location. Sitting there, no person to disturbe, no sound of streets, of mankind. Only scenery. Maybe it would be appropriate for playing guitar? Lets see, what the days will bring. For now I have a painting to display.

I think I'm going nuts. I looked upon 2000 pictures with the reason, which one will be developed as a print. My feeling is: "square eyes". So in the next weeks I will annoy you with printed out pics ;-)

Settlers of Catan

For the first time since months we played Settlers of Catan. I lost, but thats no surprise. The main thing was playing the game. The other thing: The project "getting a young dog" seems to be canceled until next year. No Odie for the cat.

As it is for everybodys interest: Since today we have a working collector for rainwater from the roof. An extension was mounted that leads the rainwater from the tube into the big pot. The pot was moved to the housewall, so another car can park in front of the house. great thing!

I tested the layouts that came with the blog. I decided to take "spring". Spring means: Now a long summer will come: sunny, hot and holidaylike. And the color looks like the one on my homepage. To be exact: it _is_ the color!

Today Georg and his girlfriend Simone visited my house. I think, they liked it. Unfortunately the weather was not fine, so they could not take a swim in the lake. We talked a bit, drank coffee and I hope we meet another time for playing a game or making musik.
