So far my friends/relatives in these regions have let it be known they're okay

Steffi (veteran of many TV gigs incl. Earthbound in Essen) has also informed that she's safe.

Indeed it looks serious/shocking/sad when you see footage of houses flooded (or even breaking down)...  :(

So far my friends/relatives in these regions have let it be known they're okay (e.g. Flaus, who I met at TV & Garden Gang gigs).

In the town where I live, there is no river, it is a "karst" landscape where water oozes away (unless it's so much the ground take it any more). Of course, below our high plain, now the sources/springs are shooting out lots of water (floodings possible, but so far we were lucky).

After yesterday's news that UK residents are allowed to travel to Germany again...I think I can finally announce this tour with some real hope that it will happen. Ich freue mich sehr, für meine Freunde in Deutschland wieder zu spielen!

I always though that the Worlds End was also in Fulham.

From what I can tell, there used to be several "Worlds End" pubs in London.

Well, wherever you are in the city, just ask yourself how many times you've come across a 'World’s End'. It's found on pub and street signs, and even in business names.

But rather than referring to anything apocalyptic, the phrase is actually just a common place name which suggests a boundary of some sort.

But nowhere has embraced the moniker quite like Chelsea. The World's End pub here (which still exists, under a slightly different guise) dates back perhaps as far as the 17th century and, customarily, got its name because it was a traveller's last place of refreshment for some time.

And now, the name is unavoidable in the area. Among other things, it’s enshrined in a Vivienne Westwood boutique on the King's Road, in a forebodingly-named health centre, and even in a council estate.

Wembley (again), eh?  ::)
Only with lots of luck the German team got this far and without a new strategy (and better players) they will lose big time.  :P

An email friend from Western Australia got herself this album (after I recommended it as a good starting point) and she enjoys it. Now I got a new email saying:

"TV Smith's acoustic is excellent for setting things on fire to. "  ;D

To give you some context, here's more info:

In our case we have dried reeds to burn at certain times of year so they're not a summer fire hazard.
Also I gave up on my weed-infested frog pond after three years of trying to weed it after it was left unattended for weeks after I broke my foot. The invasive grass had roots a metre down and kept coming back so I finally sprayed it all out, which means I killed a lot of the bushes around there too but it's actually easier to start again from scratch with plants that are harder for grass to grow into. So a month after poisoning the grass and on a dry day, I burnt the lot. Some of my bushes will re-grow from the base, but I've got other plants to put in the place of things that have been "collateral damage"...

“The new Cure stuff is very emotional,” the iconic frontman revealed to The Sunday Times. “It’s ten years of life distilled into a couple of hours of intense stuff. I can’t think we’ll ever do anything else.”
