Frau Blücher


My sister-in-law (My wife's sister) is married to a Blücher. She really is...



Did they have daughters?


Jay, no - no kids. My wife is one of 3 sisters who had no kids themselves, while their brother did. I mention it because it seems unusual.


Ahhh...got ya. I asked only because of the Frau Blücher character was so memorable.

Great scene, Tom, but I shudder to think of the waste of good Stout or Porter.

Anglican Bishop: [Seeing Danaher and Thornton enter Cohan's pub] Is that a public house?
Reverend Cyril Playfair: Yes, Your Lordship.
Anglican Bishop: And are they going in?
Reverend Cyril Playfair: Yes, Your Lordship.
Anglican Bishop: [disappointed] Does that mean the fight is over?
Reverend Cyril Playfair: No, Your Lordship; it's just the end of round one.

Emma Morano died 6 days ago. She was the oldest Italian ever, 117 years, 4.5 months, and for the last 11 months she had been the oldest person alive, period. Farewell, Emma, the last person on earth born in the 1800s.

That's stunning to consider.

A news item I just read:

"....In same-day competition in March, perennial Guinness Book records jockeys Zoe L'Amore and Ashrita Furman squared off over the record for stopping blades on an electric table fan the most times in one minute using only their tongues. On Italian TV, L'Amore stopped blades 32 times, but Furman, at a different venue, later stopped 35."

Once on a business trip to St. Louis, we had to drive through a dubious area of town. Broad daylight, relatively safe. Saw a sign at an, ahem, grocery store:

"Try our tripe"

No. Just no.

Cream liqueur with rum, spices and sweeteners. Never had it, and I figure it's really sweet. Never been much of a rum man. I do like some of the cream liqueurs made with whiskey.

I don't know what the German text says, but the picture is self-explanatory:



Edit: the translation is worth writing here:

"If I do not change everything, here is a wild boar with his city-scooter unsuccessful"
