...looks similar to my first apt...only it had the bathroom on the second floor...and a shortened but definite set of stairs...open with no risers...covered in carpet..the cat adored em, but running barefoot down those stairs was NOT recommended..!
A second-floor bathroom would take up half that second floor. Not really feasible that close under the roof.
This is actually the first "tiny house" I've seen that, at least if living alone, I wouldn't flee screaming from on sight. It's actually possible to take more than three or four steps in any direction without running into a wall.
Das perfekte Gerät und innovative Technik für die deutsche Politik: Ein stationärer #Feinstaubsauger am Straßenrand, der #Dieselpartikel und #Stickoxide aus der Luft entzieht und saubere Luft wieder auspustet. Ein wunderbares neues Argument für die deutschen Autobauer, so weiterzumachen wie bisher. Und das Beste von allem: das Ding wird auf dem Radweg aufgestellt! Also nach dem letzten Satz des Artikels war ich nicht mehr ganz sicher, ob die ZEIT jetzt nicht vielleicht eine neue Satire-Rubrik hat ...
auf den radweg gehört der ja auch schließlich hin. der ganze feinstaub, der von den fahrradfahrern produziert wird, den hat ja bis jetzt noch niemand auf dem schirm gehabt. all die tonnen von abrieb der fahrradreifen!
Und ganz nebenbei wird damit in #Kiel auch der Fahrstreifen blockiert, der für eine Verringerung der Schadstoffe sorgen könnte. Mal eben den #Fahrradweg komplett dicht machen, halte ich ja für eher kontraproduktiv ...

This crystal was photographed through a glass display case at an exhibition for the Tucson Gem and Mineral show at the Westward Look Resort. It would measure likely 20" tall. It may have been found in the early 1900's, from the Pala Chief Mine that operates to this day. #mywork #myphoto #crystal #mineral

Thanks @Dave Sutton @:) These gates ate OLD ( like early 17th Century) and there is a second set of gates behind me that have not been maintained ( there is a road that runs through the middle of the original "lime tree" lane, so it continues unkempt behind me where I took this)

I agree @Dean Barnett I have not been happy with the alternatives since my Nexus 7 died. (and have managed to kill a pad in less than a year as the SD drives are inferior in the newer ones that other companies use).
I frankly wish I could find a tablet in the 8"-9" range that had LTE radios and could function as a phone. It would be more usable as a handheld computing assistant than my current phone (a Galaxy Note 3), and wouldn't suck any less as a phone than regular smartphones do.
There is no discussion at all in the article of age-related factors. For me, my eyes simply need a larger screen, and I am not a fan of touch-screens of any description. So....I use, quite happily, a ten year old laptop. It's still working well.

Lovely portrait. And @firstname.lastname@example.org - That is probably the first "music record" I ever saw, 45 or 78 rpm "single". We'd all sing along, "We are Siamese if you please..." Disney, I believe. And at some point this century, vilified as "racist!". (Like Aladdin?) ;)
I loved the second line: "we are Siamese if you don't please." :) yes, Disney, Lady and the Tramp....I would copy the YouTube link if I could, but I can't! Also, unforgettably weird rendition by the Lennon Sisters on Lawrence Welk show...
Yes Franni I have a Siamese. A chocolate point Thai. She got a sad story to tell. heavy traumatised she came in. It was rather to my place or put down to sleep.. At that point I didn't want a cat, I am not at the house enough, and also for cats who are fond of their owners/slaves they do need their servants at home as many as possible. But I couldn't let her put to sleep. There was so much sadness in her. So I offered her a home, and the bonding and regain trust started. I had a deep "session" with her and the grief I felt inside her was deep. All she ever wanted was being loved, and she never was... Luna the basset I had at that time, a dog that everybody loved. (also a dog with a very bad history..) but lovely Luna welcomed everyone with a smile. Luna gave love and laughs, slowly Hexe felt more comfortable. When Ratjepuk came home with me after the injury, Hexe found a second dog to hold on too.. even more trust was found. Although still she needs a steady surrounding, if things change or go different she can deeply panic. She is so sweet.. although like a real Siamese does, she nags.. she nags more than a woman does... 0_0 And yes, smart Michael, so smart..
Sounds like my Bombay I had. He was obcessed with my dog, they were like brothers. He even cried when my dog died. . He was also a rescue cat... Siamese get along well with dogs, so not a surprise. (So do Bombay's). And yes, they are vocal, (Siamese, and some Bombay). And bossy! (Siamse). I once cat sat for my old landlord when they were out of town, they had an Applehead Siamese as well. She was onery, cantankerous, and demanding! And always vocal....and yes, smart....but also very affectionate as well.
@Aline van Wijk, I loved that history...you are a very special soul; I am so happy g+ ending brought me into your orbit, and every animal soul that gets to have you for a "servant" is very lucky indeed! Most of all, we are lucky to have them, even though the cycle of losing animals goes more quickly than human hearts can bear, sometimes... Well, we are up to it! P.s. The first vet after we adopted Gucci said he had to be part Bombay, which I,d never heard of. Very talkative,but in a smart, conversational way.
https://cattime.com/cat-breeds/bombay-cats yes, smart, talkative, problem solvers, very affectionate, loves kids, and dogs. Tolerates other cats, as long as they are submissive. The Bombay is dominant. They LOVE to hunt and they are heat seaking missiles. Even in Summer. They are also easy to leash train and teach things to. They act like kids, dogs, and monkeys rolled into one. And are very smart in getting their way.. mine learned how to open locked doors if he wanted out. They are also very loyal.
@email@example.com, I agree on the positive side that G+ was closing doors, and that this place was created even before the closing news had reach our ears. And that I found you here.. Strange is it? Been on G+ since the early days, and here I find all "new" faces I didn't see there but here they shine bright, and cross my path with joy. Bombay is new for me, I had to look it up. Beautiful cats.. Black cats always has been my favourites.
The touching story of Hexe! Almost all your animals have found in your place a home, where they can forget their bad beginning of life. This happens because you love them. It is true, "all that world needs is love, sweet love" as Bacharach says. Most of the abandoned or abused animals, in spite of the gloomy predictions, turn to the best possible version of themselves, because of the healing power of love.
Good morning @Maria Rachmanidou, yes pure love straight from the heart.. You worded it perfectly "Most of the abandoned or abused animals, in spite of the gloomy predictions, turn to the best possible version of themselves, because of the healing power of love." The ones hurt so deeply, tremendous souls.. most loving pets ever. With that I will admit directly that I am better with animals then with most human beings. Most Humans eat energy to fill their own present around you while animals give/share their energy. They lighten the room.. Humans seem to need more than just love in this greedy world.. :( Thank you for your perfect insight Maria!! Although I already spotted your tremendous pure heart towards animals.. With joy I watch your work around your animals.
Thank you very much @Aline van Wijk for your warm comment. I agree with you about the feelings we have for humans vs animals. I believe that if somebody lives close with animals can't but realise how precious their feelings are and their generosity to share these feelings and energy. The comparison with humans is overwhelming. I came to categorise people according to their attitude towards animals, a criterion which has been proved infallible. Please give a big hug to all your children, on my behalf. Have a lovely Sunday!
There is something particularly poignant and atmospheric when pictures like this are taken in black-and-white. The impact, to my mind at least, is greater than when in colour. Not sure why - perhaps a sense of timelessness...
Anyhow, although I live without any creature that has more than two legs (apart from the spiders) and, since my son's goldfish died, without any with fewer than two legs, I respect those who give their time and effort to save the innocent from suffering. All the best to you and your extended family...
@Aline van Wijk same here. I have always gotten along better with animals then people. I would go to people's homes just to visit with their pets, not them! I am a huge animal lover as well, the vast majority of my fuzzballs have been adopted or rescued in some way. I don't buy them. Usually they find me. I see them as my furkids. They mean that much to me.
Thank you so much @Simon Ashcroft Your words appreciated very much!! Thank you.!
Spiders gorgeous creatures is it? Although I will admit that in the past I had fear for them, until I heard the words: "Een avond spin brengt zegen in".. from that moment every spider spotted in the evening was treasured.. When I found a Wasp spider in the meadow and that one gave me the creeps.. but the unknown might feed the fear so I started looking for information and the fear turned into intrigued by..
Your welcome. I also used to have a totally irrational fear of spiders - something my son seems to have now. These days they don’t concern me. I send them in the direction of the garden with the use of a bug catcher - less risk of injury to them than trying to handle them. Not sure why the change in my outlook - possibly having to deal with my son’s concern. I’m afraid my language skills don’t stretch to whatever you quoted above. My native language is English, and I am reasonably competent in Greek. Care to translate?
