Personal Outlook for 2012

For the last 20 + years i am doing basically the same, keep my working hours to a minimum and travel as much as i can. Thus i have ample time to do, what i like most - see the world, play music, make schnaps and place a flutter. I don´t expect 2012 to be much different. Also i want to stay faithful to my  guidelines " Maintain peace of mind " and " Never act like an a..hole because of money ". Anyway, for you, the avid reader of this blog, i wish the very best of luck for 2012, may things go your way.

26.12.2011 " Boxing Day " in England

The biggest sports day in England and probably everything with four legs and a tail participates in some sort of race. Since i am not involved in the Christmas shopping frenzy i had some time on hand to pick out some selections hopefully  finishing off the year with a handsome profit.
Turf--King George VI Chase    Kauto Star  @ 4.33
Kauto Star rolled back the years, when he won the Betfair Chase in November. Trainer Paul Nicholls and connections are currently very happy with him and there is no doubt i will back this amazing animal.
--Feltham Novice Chase   Silviniaco Conti  @ 5.50 
Topclass-prospect from the Nicholls stable. He faces very strong rivals, but at those odds he is worth a punt with a workingmans stake.
Football fourfold--- Middlesbrough vs. Hull > 2.5 goals @ 2.20
                               Leyton Orient vs. MK Dons > 2.5 goals @1.83
                               Huddersfield vs. Chesterfield > 2.5 goals @ 1.66
                               Walsall vs. Sheffield Wed. 2 or 3 goals @ 2.00
NFL ( by Matt Nesbitt )--- S. F. 49ers at Seattle Seahawks / Seattle + 2.0 Handicap
                                           Oakland Raiders at K. C. Chiefs / Kansas - 2.5 Handicap
                                           ( both played at 24.12. )
*** Results - Turf : Kauto Star won Silviniaco Conti 2nd -  Football: LWLW -  NFL: Push L

Latest news from German politicians

- President Wulff ( CDU, lawyer ) is involved in an credit scandal, disclosing proximity to a dubious businessman. Not the first time he has to fight such allegations.
- Berlins justice senator Michael Braun ( CDU, lawyer )  stepped down after 11 days in office, because of shady real estate sales.
- Deputy Frank Mindermann ( CDU, banker ) stepped down after approaching 14 and 15 year old girls.
And then there is Christian Lindner ( FDP ), the "Jude Law" look-a-like and latest quitter. Chris was the general secretary of a party, that belongs to the government-coalition with roundabout 2 % of voters approval, but has nonetheless  five !! ministers in its ranks. He was regarded a great political talent, although his professional career is a history of failure. As with many other German politicians you rise your eyebrows and ask yourself, what qualifies and entitles them to rule us.
They keep telling us, what a great thing democracy is, but besides being a debt making machine, it seems to be a basin for politicians with rotten moral standards.

Xmas festivity at Acupari (Asociacion Cultural Peruano Alemana)

I used to teach Peruvians there the intricacies of German grammar - with limited avail.

10.12.2011 It´s " El Classico " again

Make no mistake, these two sides despise each other and we probably see the usual overheated encounter between Real and Barca. The match can go either way and i looked for a different betting angle. Especially Real Madrid has some hot-blooded players with Ramos and Pepe and Paddy Power offers odds of 26 for Sergio Ramos and odds of 21 for Pepe to get marching orders.Attempting enough for a small investment with a saver in the " Both to score " market @ 1.57.***1:3 and no red card shown. Unfortunately Ramos got away with a yellow card after a vicious tackle.

Trip to Copacabana ( Bolivia )

Became necessary after my 90 days in Peru expired. Copacabana is located at the shore of Lake Titicaca and i always liked it for its relaxed atmosphere.
