I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

      1. My pleasure! You will not believe Jane. Our Bavarian Television now gets his own literature show, wish – perhaps you know him – Thomas Gottschalk. Oh my gosh, since our former prime minister, now Ministry for the Interior of Germany – lives in Berlin, Bavaria nobilities (Wittelsbacher, King Ludwig II.) think they are famous. 🙂

      2. The name sounded familiar but when I looked him up I found it wasn’t the person I was thinking of. Nope, never heard of him but he looks dire. Ludwig I might have enjoyed his company.

      3. 🙂 Oh yes! I am wondering about the new style of Bavarian television. Seems they will put themselves on a more academic way. Free State of Bavaria 13 billion inhabitants, and a very creepy parliament. LoL

      4. We’ve never had one. I listen to comments about TV programmes, TV celebrities, what they’ve done or said, and I have trouble understanding why this should be newsworthy at all.
