Yeah, I made a lot of green tomato chutney  :D :D

I made the best of it too but I bought three San Marzano Plats for quite some money to grow them big and make homegrown San Marzano Pasta sauce but it seems that germany is weather wise a little bit to far from italy  :D

that's a great truck @twin. I'm seeing more and more if them here in Minnesota and they are a great updated version of the classic ranger. My wife has an F-150 and we were considering a Raptor, but it wouldn't be practical for pulling the horse trailer.

In Europe, they make a Ranger Raptor, which would be a really fun truck to drive.

Enjoy your new wheels!

I drive past a Ranger Raptor on my way to work, looks like a lot of fun. Sadly we dont get the real Raptor for  the Dealer and a Import Car is hella expensive.

I´m really into Techno the last view Weeks, more then usual, I listen to Techno for Around 15 Years but I like the current Vibe and the Artists. I´m from an HiFi Standpoint always facinated how dialed the Techno Tracks are when it comes to Mastering. The Majority of Chart Music there Days is digital but despite the face often lacks clear Bass and Highs even in HighRes Formats, especially in Hip Hop you get what kind of Bassline they where going for but missed to fully work out, in Techno on the other Hand the Basslines are Bone Shaking and when played on the Right Medium as Low as ist gets.

I saw a Documentation on Youtube about American Pizza yersterday so naturally I made a dough last Night and with the help of my trusty Turk Steelpan and my Ooni Oven I baked this little Fella tonight:


Usually i´m all Pizza Neapolitana but from time to time a little mix up is nice.

Looks amazing, you beeing a Doctor and still having time to bake makes my argument of working to much for baking melt away  :D

cheers @Steffen I started baking bread during covid-19 lockdown (as so many other) with more spare time then I usual have. First breads were levain breads which can be quite time consuming as you have to look after your sourdough daily. At the moment I am baking once a week, mostly preferments/overnights like Biga or Poolish. You start your predough in the evening and can bake the next morning/noon. With me it's usually Tuesday evening starting Biga and baking Wednesday around noon. Wednesday is the day when I write my referall letters (and bake bread additionally). @neph93 is a teacher, is renovating a house, has a pack of children and has still time to bake breads for the whole gang. So I think if you really want to do it and finally get some routine it is not that big thing.

Your absolutley right @Chap I´m baking bread for a couple of years now on and off, during the Lockdown I had a part of my family sourdough here and cranked out 2-4 Breads a Week for Friends and Family, wehn work picked up again, a littler faster then i wouldve like i lost my routine and stopped baking bread. You´re right i probably should go for some Predough Overnight recipes and get a Routine in. My Favorite Sourdough Bread takes 16 Hours to get the Sourdough ready and then basiclly 3-4 hours constant care to get the dough ready, i simply dont have the time for that now.

Thanks for the Answers Guys.

@deanclean I read that with the rust problems, i spotted one here and there on the market that is derusted and sealed which no one would do if it wasnt a problem, i make shure to look out for that, Merci. I would prefer to buy one from a private Owner instead of a Dealer because I think that a Person who bought a Defender did it because he or she liked the car and cared for it, it isnt a VW Golf, no one buys it because he or she needs a grocery getter.

My Dad is a Automotive Technician and I took some knowledge from him too so i´m set when it comes to workshop work.

I found an insane amount of Infos regarding repair and there are plenty german shops that sell Repair and Upgrade Parts for the Defender. The Upgrade thing is important because we have our good old german "TÜV" who does the technical Check-Up for every Car on the road who doenst like non OEM Parts if they dont have the right Certificate with them, luckly for the Defender there are Tons and Tons of certified Upgrade Parts with makes life much easier.

I have an old Audi form the 80s that is the Polar opposite, no Parts avalabile, no Manuals avalabile, not even Audi Dealerships can source some Parts.

@Giles That would be the Year I thought looking at too, 07-10 or so, in the Mid-priced Sector, I dont plan on getting a Museum Piece for 60k but neither a Rat for 10k with 500k Kilometers. Not many Breakdowns or other Problems Sounds promesing.

I know that the long range travel capabilities arent really there, If i wouldve to go for distance i swap my mother for her Mercedes C-Class.

@Chap That is the Point, I have to do both, I have a Forest and Fields (and an Apple Orchard in the near Future) to look after and work in but I moved to the City two Years ago, I tried to go to the Forest in my Dads VW Polo and may have wrecked the Gearbox to shite in a Day  :D So i think of sacrificing some Comfort in the City and on my way to work for the go everywhere capabilities of the Defender.

Sadly i´m missing the Almhütte, would be lovely though, a college of mine has one with his dad.

Thanks @Appfaff

This is the first big Point to decide, here in Germany we have Emission Stickers that show how much Co2 the Car produces, without the Sticker you cant drive into many major citys. That leaves me with two Options, either take a 2005ish and later Model because they either have the Green Sticker or can get them with a aftermarket Filter or I have to get one Pre 1990 because this would be considerd "historisch" or Oldtimer which in Germany gives you the Letter "H" on the Numberplate and besides other benefits frees you from any Emission regulations.

The question then is how daily-able are those 1990 and ealier Defender, I´m talking Autobahn driving to work, lots of Kilometers, work in the Forest and because i live in the City also driving in thick traffic ?

I love that the Houses in your Woodwork look like yours (and the previous one), just remodeling the interior is easier and faster than having to remodel everything on the outside as well. We germans had a couple of rough decades when it comes to family homes...

The Park Board looks intresting to say the least.

Skateboarding is really a lession in positivity, I landed the 360 Shuvit on the Weekend after two weeks of trying and based on that a BS Biggerspin on the Bank the same day, today i wanted to re-do the 360 Shuv and simply couldnt do it. I landed a Kickflip randomly inbetween which is huge for me hence i suck at flip tricks but i basiclly in the moment ignored it because i was pissed that i couldnt re-do the other trick. I shouldve appericiated the accomplished and saved the other mission for later, life lession.

The Second inherent lession is that skateboarding is effin hard  :D :D :D
