Inn = rain

I did a donation of 150 EUR for the woman-houses of Innsbruck. Strange story: Innsbruck made an auction of the old street signs of Innsbruck which I visited. "Bozner Platz" made 1500 EUR, "Maria Theresien Stra├če" about 900 EUR, "Rennweg" 1200 EUR. And three signs "Innrain" were sold for each at about 700 EUR. So at the 4th sign "Innrain", were I grew up, I held up my number several times with no thought of getting it. But then: "Innrain" the fourth sign stopped at my last offering at 150 EUR and so first - second - third: It was mine. Well! Now I am the owner of the only two-line sign "Inn = rain".

Back to the start

Strange feeling. First night alone in my house again. Reverb in the rooms, no sound than mine.

Light off

In case of the light off action I turned off all the lights in the house from 8:30 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. today. It was very dark in that hour!

First sun in spring

Today was the first day this year that I sat on the terrace, drinking my coffee, reading a newspaper. Although there is a lot of snow around I only wore a t-shirt and no stockings.

what a sound!

Imagine, what sound occures, if you have an animal, called Tettigonia viridissima, male, IN your room. In the nature, you can hear the chirpy-chirpy sound about 50 m, but wow, that's great. Even harder was to find the Great Green Bush Cricket. It hears very good, jumps some meters and can fly good too. But I catched it and set it free. Now the silence is very fine.

Obsteig calendar

During 2007 the library of Obsteig startet a photography-contest titled "Was ich mit Obsteig verbinde - was mich mit Obsteig verbindet". My picture didn't enter the calendar, but is shown in the Internet.

saving energy

I changed my desktop light from energy saving light bulb to LED bulb. The first bulb took 11 Watt in use, the LED bulb only 1,8 Watt. In addition to that I installed a radio transmitting energy plugin. It causes all standby facilitys to not take any energy while not in use. Let's see whow much energy I will be saving in one year.
