Bullshit! We know full well you deliberately washed them poorly enough so you don't get to do it!  :snicker1:

I trimmed the hedge in my garden today, because between March 1st and September 30th, all hedge cutting is forbidden, according to the German Federal Nature Conservation Act. During this period no large cuts are allowed on "hedges, living fences, bushes and other woody plants. The reason behind the law is that bushes and trees provide homes for native birds, insects, and other animals, and offer them protection against their natural predators. The green areas provide them a place for sleeping and resting, and for mating season. Anyone who breaks the law can be fined up to 50,000 euros!

... Time to go load the dishwasher and start it...

*Grumble* You have a dishwasher *Grumble* I wish I had a dishwasher. *Grumble*

I am the dishwasher here. At least there's music to make it more tolerable.

50,000 was indeed quoted in a newspaper. That could have been a typing mistake, because I read in another newspaper that the maximum fine is 10,000 EUR. Even that I find crazy.

Well today I'm baking a loaf of sourdough bread. Working on my mother-in-laws ash casket. Possibly cutting the front lawn. Maybe working on a pen case. Taking the dogs for a walk. And doing my daily Mubarak Bala post on Facebook.

That sounds lovely. How long does it take to get there?

I'm going to watch a little TV, read some of the Quora Digest, and relax. Tomorrow comes dealing with bill collectors.
