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.

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.


A Stammtisch is the table at which regular customers meet. In Germany, it's common for groups of friends or people with common interest to get together on a regular basis. English terms that might encompass similar activities would be special interest group and bridge club. Stammtisch often gets directly translated as "regulars' table".

In Germany there are many, many Stammtische. Some are groups of friends that have been meeting since they were kids and some are people with a common interest such as a Motorrad Stammtisch ( motorcyle enthusiasts meeting ).


Geschäfte Eintragen

Das AZBizNetz Site ist schon lange bereit.

Heute habe ich ein Paar Leute geemailt und gebeten ihre Firmen in den Firmenverzeichnis zu eintragen.

Einer hat Probleme, denn URL wurde nur mit http:// oder https:// richtig behandelt. Ich habe's korriegiert. Jetzt wird URL ohne Protokolbezeichnung wird als http behandelt.

Ich habe auch notiert, daß das Logo ein Bild sein muß.

aieeee, the colors

Ich habe mit dem CSS gespielt und endlich kapiert wie man die Texte in der verschiedene Rubrike anders farben kann.

Es sieht gerade etwa häßich aus. Wir können's aber jetzt verbessern.
