Here is Bud's wish: a short introduction

I'd signed up on his board :)

O.K. a little bit more:
I'm from Germany and I live with my family here in Chandler, AZ). We decided us for Chandler (Boston, MA would be the other choice).

I do like the weather here (really) and the easy way of living. I don't like some other stuff, but "there is always just the whole package" :twisted: .
Now, my hobbies are (besides computer): cooking, board game playing, role playing, eating, good wine/beer, and ... .

Here is a quote from the former US ambassador in Germany:
"You learn the most about your country, if you live outside."
(wise man)

So cu around and interresting discusions.

Robert

Welcome! I hope my friends become your friends.

All,

Robert and his wife owned a gaming store back in Germany. So, he's an old gaming (D&D, and such) geek like several of us.

However, I think you're going to have to explain what the hell "cocking" is. :lol: (I'm pretty sure you meant "cooking", since you've made lunch for the bunch of us at work several times.)

That would explain why you built this in your back yard.

"Egad" - mild expletive, as in "oh my gawd, that's just hideous!"

I meant it, in jest, in reference to the picture of that...umm...fire thing in Robert's backyard. :roll:

Naaa, it's a pizza / bread oven.
3 - 4 hours pre-heating
~700 - 800 degrees Fahrenheit inside
~ 2 min for a pizza

Well that's the temparatur pizza is calling for.

Like a sunny sommer day in Phonix.

if heated well, a log (~ 12 cm diameter or 5 inches) nees between 5 - 10 seconds to catch fire. This gives me a small glimps of a real wild fire.

It's Laugenbrezeln or Laugenwecken (the rolls). Or brezn.
And please don't twist your tongue
