Dumbkopf. Her great grandfather was an officer in Der Wehrmacht and a diplome engineer and a diplome architect. She plows through mathematics like Der Fuehrer, an undisciplined Bavarian dreamer. Icht mancht mal. This iPad does not translate Deutsche well. I speak German, better than that.

Hamburg Rathaus by Michel und Elbe.


Literally Advise House, maybe Counsel House would be a better literal translation than Advise

Rathaus is the City Hall

I do literal translations from German.  Fallschirmjaeger (Falling Umbrella Hunstman).  Doesn’t sound very intimidating, when you do a literal translation, does it?  Fräulein (Little Wife).  Completely misses the meaning in German.  Counsel House was close to City Hall.

September 13th 1814: Defense of Fort McHenry

On this day in 1814, the United States army forces at Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland successfully defended the city from the British during the War of 1812. British warships bombarded the fort for over 24 hours, but the American defense held fast and by the morning of September 14th the British were forced to retreat due to lack of ammunition.  The event, particularly the sight of an American flag being raised over the fort at dawn in celebration of victory, inspired Francis Scott Key to write a poem called ‘The Star-Spangled Banner’. Key was a witness to the battle because he was aboard a British ship having been trying to negotiate the release of an American prisoner. The poem was eventually set to the tune of a well-known 18th century British song and the anthem soon became a popular patriotic American song, and was commonly used by the armed forces. On March 3rd 1931, at the urging of many patriotic organisations, a congressional resolution was signed by President Hoover which affirmed 'The Star-Spangled Banner' as America’s official national anthem.

I forget.  Who was the possible Jewish successor to Stalin?  Was it Beria?  I remember the possible successor was a child molester and after he died,  they found the bones of young children under one of his residences or in a well or something.  Much of what I learned as a child, alcohol has wiped from my brain, particularly, what we studied about our strongest adversary, Russia.  I remember that at one point, Stalin was studying for the priesthood.  So Stalin was not Jewish.  Karl Marx was Jewish.  I can’t remember if Freidrich Engel was Jewish.  A lot of people forget that it was “The Communist Manifesto” by Karl Marx and Freidrich Engel.
