Hoping that our dear Admin dsanchez is okay, tried to reach him via PM, but no reply so far... I'm a little bit worried now... :pensive:

Edit: and today he's online, so I needn't have worried!  :cool

Interesting reading, only the sound quality leaves a lot to be desired. The hermit, Seven of Pentacles and Four of Pentacles in inverted position...unusual for Gemini but correct after doing my own research.

Break (09.03.2022)

I think your voice is chronically overloaded. Speaking in a low voice damages the vocal cords the most. An opera singer from Holland told me that. Added to this is the very dry heating air. Breaks are necessary. However, I like to listen to you, because you have a 'smoky' voice and with corresponding pauses in speaking of up to 60 seconds or more, this has a pleasant effect on the listener.

Yesterday I deliberately looked at older readings. It's easier to type in a specific month and zodiac sign than scrolling through your profile. I stumbled across 'Endstation' (12/24/2019) and 'La creme de la creme' (03/13/2020). As you can easily see from the time before Corona. The Christmas Eve reading is 🙄. I could do more with the other, but the roles are reversed. The hint that time is relative no longer comes up. Should be from time to time...

I worry about the creeping 'deforestation' or 'defoliation' of Germany. The awareness of this, in contrast to the 1980s, is only weak. Back then it was the threat of the bark beetle or 'acid rain'. Now it's the last inner-city green areas that have to give way for new parking lots/parking garages, storms in autumn and winter that also damage the old oak trees or 'petrified' front gardens that offer a desolate sight. Added to this is the merciless pruning in cemeteries. I already spoke about leveling. Refuges are good for people and animals. It can't be that I can only experience privacy within my own four walls. Especially in a federal state with 18 million inhabitants...

@MM: You might wanna try and find like-minded people to start a "protest" against it in your town?

Some years ago (around 2015) the local council here wanted to give way to houses being built over a "park" landscape (sadly our local politicians never considered to officially name this a "park"!), but many people started an "initiative" against it. We collected like 700 signatures to tell the council members that many disagree with this. (You can imagine that some of them weren't pleased that people disagreed with their decisions.)

So far nothing happened there, maybe one day it will (sadly). The "protest movement" has run out of steam a couple of years ago, so the council might still go ahead at some point. But who knows, we might get back together if they'll try...

At least we can say we stopped the plans for a number of years and the trees and meadows are still intact!  :happy

The sound was better this time. The only thing I can't classify at the moment is the reading. The second and third quarters have to show it. My gut feeling is not special. However, someone close to me has actually become a mother. The advertising banner in the foreground obscures the view in the lower third...disturbing.

Thank you! 🙂

PS: The Ringstrasse will be closed from April 19th. The Northern Bypass took over thirty years and what did it bring?!

@ Prof H. Abramson

Dear Mister Professor,

I would not have published part 4 in this year's so-called Holy Week. A cultural channel financed by public fees has "jumped on your bandwagon" with a four-part series about ant*-S*m*t*sm. After Easter would have been better. Nevertheless, I would like to thank you for the interesting content.  :smth023

Quote from: avenir50plus.chMonika S. had to give up her job as a cashier due to back problems. For eight years, the now 62-year-old was dependent on the support of her residential community, Oberentfelden AG. Then she had had enough. She only wanted one thing: to get away from welfare.
Life was made increasingly difficult for her. First she should move because her apartment was 170 francs too expensive. Then there was no money for the new bed, which she urgently needed. "After all, I was threatened with sanctions if I didn't do any volunteer work."
The alternative that the municipality suggested to her last year therefore sounded tempting: draw the vested benefits from the pension fund early and take early retirement the following year at age 62. So she could withdraw from social assistance immediately and have after retirement claim for supplementary benefits gene (EL). The sticking point: you have to part with their retirement capital repay their debts on social security.

I had similar difficulties and got legal advice; once in 2012 and then again in 2019. First it was about the recognition of my severely disabled status and then about the withdrawal of a benefit that I was supposed to receive until I reached normal retirement age. The reason given was that I could work longer than six hours a day again. Before that I had a (second) rehabilitation, also to clarify my social situation, but I was attacked by various people in the course of it. I think everyone who has been in this situation knows that. As a result, I looked for a psychologist and get the full disability pension, which is limited. It was a long, rocky road to get here. Although I now have financial security, the basic problems remain.
