Heaven and Hell

Tim, a good friend of us, will have his sixtieth anniversary in a few days time. He still works as a priest.

Yesterday we went to the wonderful "Kö", an exclusive shopping area in Düsseldorf, looking for a funny birthday present. In one of the windows of a special shop with china goods, we saw a nice bowl with an interesting text. It might be the right choice for Tim.

And that's why we like to inform you on this choice - just to put a little smile on your face:

Heaven is where the police are British,
the cooks French,
the mechanics German,
the lovers Italian,
and it is all organised by the Swiss.

Hell is where the chefs are British,
the mechanics French,
the lovers Swiss,
the police German,
and it is all organised by the Italians.

We bought this bowl for our friend, hoping Tim would have pleasure and will smile like you do. Do you really? Or are you not a good European?

Book by Rainer Tiemann:


Oasenzeit. Gedichte und Geschichten von Rainer Tiemann

Hin und wieder brauchen Menschen Ankerplätze in ihrem Leben. Sie suchen deshalb nach Oasen, die Entspannung bieten. Dies können geliebte Menschen, die Familie oder gute Freunde sein. Für manche sind es ganz bestimmte Orte oder Landschaften. Anregungen oder Ruheorte, z.B. durch entspanntes Lesen von Lyrik zu finden, ist ein Anliegen von Rainer Tiemann mit diesem Buch „Oasenzeit“. Es lädt dazu ein, interessante Regionen, z.B. Andalusien, Cornwall, die Normandie oder das Tessin zu entdecken. Aber auch Städte, wie Brüssel, Florenz und Paris, Schwerin, Leipzig oder Leverkusen können Oasen sein, die jeder Mensch neben dem Glück der Liebe zeitweise braucht.
