Ich wuensche allen meinen Besuchern eine schoene Adventszeit!
I am wishing all my visitors a wonderful Christmastime!
All over the world people are shocked!
Typhoon Yolanda/Haiyan, a Category 5 mega-storm, has left the Philippines devastated.
Nearly 10'000 people in the Philippines are already confirmed dead, with many more thousands of survivors left grieving and homeless. Millions will need basic aid during the still-unfolding rescue and recovery process, to say nothing of the billions of dollars in damage to homes and infrastructure.
Authorities had evacuated hundreds of thousands of people before the typhoon arrived, but many evacuation centers - schools, churches and government buildings - proved unable to withstand the winds and storm surges.
Yolanda/Haiyan brought sustained winds of 235 km/h, with gusts of 275 km/h and waves as high as 15 m. In some places, as much as 400 mm of rain fell.
Some towns have been flattened completely!
I ask all of you, who were lucky to be far away, to help those unfortunate families with just a little (or more) to regain a life worth living!

Behind every great man is a woman rolling her eyes.
I believe that if life gives you lemons, you should make lemonade... And try to find somebody whose life has given them vodka, and have a party.
