We had a fine evening at the lakeside-studios for a ferrara-rehearsal. After the song "Bubbles for Lizzy" I recognized bubbles on my lefthand fingers. Bad sign! So I will try to build up horny skin until next week to avoid hurting fingers.

Settlers of Catan

In the last days, when my nephew Meiki
was here, we played the card game "settlers of catan". We played all 6 extensions in 10 games. The score is 6:4 for him. He plays quite good.

croatia holiday

Because of bad weather forecast we missed the last highway exit to croatia an ended up in upper austria in Riedersbach at my sister's home. We had some nice trips to Altötting, Haselbach and Braunau. We also visited Salzburg, one "Orgelkonzert", the Getreidegasse, and had a wonderful time with my sister's family. Now my nephew came with us to me to see how nice Tirol and his uncle are. :-)

heating season

Today, Aug. 6th, we first started the heating season for this year. As the temperature was below 13 deg.Celsius for for the last four days (in the evening), we fired the oven today to get acceptable temperatures in the house. I think we finished the last firing season at beginning of June this year.

Started to figure out TeX. On my system teTeX. And as I tested, I read the homepage of Thomas Esser. There he wrote, that he will not develop tetex anymore. I should join tex live. So I will have to change my installation. Tried out some tex-commands. I think I will change my preparation of the lessons for school to tex. Mostly to learn how to use the system. I created an article that is usefull for me. But then I started searching howtos in the internet, and it seems that TeX is not as easy as I thought. But I will take it as challenge for the next year. It is a combined challenge for TeX and emacs. Wonder what I will tell you in one year.

Slept long

, because: Went home on sunday, got to bed at 6 p.m., slept until 3 p.m. next day exept a short break for mini-lunch. Went straight to the doctor and he said: ulcerously angina. Got antibiotica and anti-hurt-pills. At 7 p.m. I went to my dentist an she filled up two teeth. And she was very pleased that the other doctor gave me those anti-hurt-pills and the antibioticas, because they would help against possible troubles with my teeth too.
