Germans and their cars / Nemci in njihovi avti

Oh yeah, the top picture is from one of the numerous vending machines in the toilets (Billy Boy is how I sometimes call my good friend as a joke). / Zgornja slike je mišljena kot hec (svojega prijatelja včasih v šali kličem Billy Boy) My boy is having a blast in Germany if his enjoyment […]

Beerducation…

… the German (organised) way. How do you learn the differences between different beer types? You try them all. But how do you know you have tried them all? You leave it to Germans to figure the way and you just buy their product. The German beer culture in one box: This is what awaits me […]

Milan Stibilj (1929–2014)

Ne gre za osmrtnico ali turobno pisanje, le spomin na dolgoletnega soseda in družinskega prijatelja, ki mi je kot otroku kupil kolo, ker si ga nismo mogli privoščiti. Ker je bil dober človek in očitno tudi velik umetnik. Slednje je zelo dobro skrival. Milan Stibilj… was our long-time (twenty years) neighbour in Vodmat. He lived across […]

Reggaehase Boooo

What can you expect from a puppet show named Reggae Rabbit named Boooo (live! nonetheless)? Apparently a lot! It was absolutely fantastic, fresh, with lots of fun (live) music the kids could dance to. And the story got me involved even though it was in German. Going to a puppet show reminded me I hate […]

Offspring / Potomci

Having a child changes you forever. I do not mean that I fell in love with my kids the moment I saw them and that an overwhelming sense of fatherly love overpowered me (when I first saw them I was scared out of my wits, they smelled funny and they weren`t even close to pretty, […]

Bad Daddy / Oči, Oči (očitajoče)

If I would have to say I have a weakness (if somebody would torture me) I would have to say it is junk food – I love it and I don`t need any advertising from them saying that I do because I am, I am loving it. Sometimes the craving is just too much and […]

Update on Paula`s work / Kako gre Pauli

Above is a sketch from Ambrož on the theme of a cartoon Frozen. / Zgoraj je Ambroževa risba na temo risanke Frozen (Ledeno Kraljestvo)  Paula has been working at her new position well over a month now. Every day like clockwork she gets up at six AM (or even sooner, depends on our early riser Ambrož who […]

Thank you for the fishes / Hvala za ribe

One of the things I never expected as a father – among thousands of things that came as a surprise with parenthood – were the phases of growing up. Children have different phases about all sorts of things – about foods they like or don`t like, about their behaviour, about the process of learning and […]

Remenising / Prijetni spomini

Again, something short. Again, because of that damned book – it is just too good (what happened to the Onion Knight – I am just barely containing myself from going to Wiki of Ice and Fire). Just now I was driving from karate practice (I am not entirely sure the sensei isn`t trying to kill […]
