Best snapshot of 2013
The question is: How do I find the best Chiperoni snapshot of 2013? My most productive month on Flickr in 2013 was May. Least productive – at least in terms of uploads – was August. Here’s a quick review of my year on Flickr: January 2013 February 2013 März 2013 April 2013 May 2013 June […]
The blog is dead. Again.
Recommended read: Article by Jason Kottke. The blog as we once knew it is dead, but many of its elements will live on. If you want something to cry about, cry about the decline of the open web, the death of which would be a huge blow for us all. But perhaps that’s a topic […]
ET phone home
I like this blog post on the Crossroads website: Home for Christmas. ET phone home. Growing up in Malawi, I probably don’t share the same level of contemplative Christmas (“besinnliche Weihnachten”) memories that my fellow German compatriots may have experienced. It’s difficult to emulate some Christmas traditions when it’s over 30 degrees warm. My mom […]
A fave for http://www.wenger-2-rad.ch/
This is a blog post to say thank you to http://www.wenger-2-rad.ch/. On Monday morning, I noticed that I had forgotten my bicycle lock at home. Since I don’t have a lockable place to store my bike near work, I hurried to the closest bicycle shop planning to buy a substitute. When I noticed I’d forgotten […]

My wish list
Inspired by various gift lists that are showing up in my timeline, I thought I need to write my own wish list. On my wish list: New takkies. I’ve started running again on a regular basis. And I noticed I need to replace my Asics with a fresh pair. Bought my current pair in 2010. […]
Banana Bread – December 2013 version
Four, very overripe bananas in my kitchen… means it’s time for banana bread. I found this recipe while searching for the keyphrase “coconut banana bread” and decided to give it a try: Ingredients 4 bananas, (2 1/2 cups mashed or 575 grams)(they can be yellow bananas) 4 eggs 1/2 cup almond butter (140 grams)(or coconut, […]

This article continues some thoughts discussed in a previous entry: How To Motivate Yourself Into an Exercise Routine You'll Actually Stick To. I like the idea of thinking in systems.
Underperforming students at Chanco
This is sad news: http://www.nyasatimes.com/2013/11/29/university-of-malawi-withdraws-116-unperforming-students-at-chanco/ It’s so tough to get to Chanco in the first place and then this. Their relatives will be devastated. I’m sure lots of aunts and uncles paid towards their secondary school and exam fees. I know very few students that make it to uni level in Malawi. Most lack the […]
