Brain, pain and common cold.

I'm sick... 
It's an acute viral rhinopharyngitis, or as normal people call it: a common cold.
And that makes my brain hurt.

That's just fantastic. Now I have to stay in bed and can babble about it in my blog. I really hope I am better till Friday, because I have train tickets to Pöchlarn in Austria. I'll visit friends of mine in Marbach an der Donau. They bought an old tavern with guest rooms that was build in the 1920s. I am often down there to help them restore the building.

Well, I guess that's all for now folks. Wish me well.

 That's the old tavern.
And that's me at work.

Stuttgart and Peter Pan

I spent the weekend in Stuttgart.

It was fun. I've never been Stuttgart and I have to say it's a really nice city. 
Strolling over the christmas fair, having some Bratwurst and glogg and listening to a brass band playing Christmas songs.

Have I mentioned that I love Christmas? I really love that time in the year when everyone is (trying to be) friendly, everyone is dressed decent (because it's cold) and the world around you is covered with a cold blanket of snow.

Try to love it and try to see the nice aspects of Christmas. In fact - try to see the good thing about something first and then point youre finger on the downside.

Thanks to Mel, Amie and Chris for that beautiful weekend!

There you see two girls who know how to dress.

There sometimes are only small differences.

And then came Peter Pan:

And then I saw this. The real live peter Pan.
Someone tries to undermine my Christmas spirit or wants to psycho-nuke my childhood memories.
Maybe I book this guy as a piñata for my next birthday ? That'll be fun.

But he gives me the giggles and that's all I need to forgive him.

At least he's an honest guy. 
I quote : "And speaking of 'silly', I know all this makes me a very silly boy! But If it sounds like a fun thing or even if you'd just like a good laugh (I laugh at myself all the time!) you must check out my Peter Pan's Fashion Page! for a close up look at some of my concoctions"

Who's ME ?

Let me introduce myself.
My name is Michael Platten, I am a young chap in love with life.
I live and love the era between the mid-1920s and the late-1930s.

I have photos to show and things to tell.
And I got an opinion on most topics that I want to share.

So that's all folks.

That's really all I have to say for my first blog entry?  Sad isn't it....?
