Feuerzangenbowle 2007

Due to plumbing issues we will not be showing the film this year. Ja, ja, ich weiß, "Wir haben aber keine Bauarbeit." Well, believe me, we have some Umbauarbeit.

All is not lost. AC4GC has invited me to make Feuerzangenbowle at their Christmas party. The party includes kids, so if you bring some please also bring gifts for the Weihnachtsmann's bag. He'll be there around 18:30.

The first Bowle will be lit up right around party kickoff at 17:30. Depending on demand, more might be made.

ogg vorbis and bluetooth in a PMP!

The Insignia Pilot is a great, little portable music player that does ogg vorbis and has bluetooth!

ogg vorbis and the in dash NS-C5111 car stereo

At the end of 2006 I went into Best Buy with a few storage devices with ogg vorbis and flac tracks on them. I tried several units in the car audio system and found only one that played the ogg vorbis tracks on every medium it could use. It turned out to be the house brand, Insignia NS-C5111, which plays ogg vorbis off CD, USB thumb drive and SD card. Outstanding. I bought it and had Best Buy install it.

Medieval FDA and 500 year old bratwust recipe

An amateur historian found a nearly 600 year old bratwurst recipe. Apparently the 1432 guidelines indicate quality requirements and fines if they aren't met. Wonder if the medieval testing meant everyone on the inspection committee got a free bratwurst.

germanic culture in US-AZ

German is the third most common native language in Arizona. Unsurprisingly there are also a great number of germanic events and organizations in the state.

Some are long established events such as the Tempe-Stammtisch that has been meeting every Friday for over 35 years. Some are new traditions such as AC4GC's annual authentic from the germanic community Phoenix Oktoberfest.
