My bicycle. And my saddle. <3

It’s one of these under appreciated everyday items. My good old bicycle. And when I say old, I mean old. At least relatively. I think my parents bought this for me in 1994 or 1995, when I was 14/15 years old. So this bike has been for me for more than half of my life. […]

Ello.co – simple, beautiful, ad-free and beta.

The last social media service, I got (at least) a little excited about has been tent.is (now cupcake.io), used by about a dozen people. The concept to build an open protocol as a fundament for many services seemed noble and for me it was much more appealing than diaspora. Well, ello.co isn’t open, but it’s […]

What we learned while camping…

We went to the East German peninsula Usedom for a ten day vacation. Actually, we’ll leave tomorrow. And since I got all kinds of pens and a paper notebook in my bag, I spontaneously decided to do some visual note taking for our vacation days. And instead writing a diary every day, I sat down […]

Chickpea (gram flour) waffles

Chick pea is best pea. And more than that. For a longtime chickpeas occupy an important place on my plate. Indisputable my favorite variant form of it is Hummus. Incomparable. Unbeatable. Unsurpassable. This recipe from Humus101 is a good starting point, although I usually quardruple the amount. But by far Hummus is not everything you […]

Discord Lamp – 2 seconds in My Little Pony Friendship is Magic. Within 20 work hours on my shelf.

Keep Calm in Flutter On has been one of my favorite episodes of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic so far. Not only because of the rebirth of the great and chaosful Discord, but also because of a lot of really nice slapstick scenes and animation details. And one has instantly engraved upon my heart: […]
