Conchita Wurst

Conchita Wurst

Conchita Wurst

A couple of weeks ago it was the first time that I saw and heard about Conchita. The first image makes you confused. Something never seen: a woman with a beard.

I saw the small spot on a TV docu about the most confusing people or something like that. Weeks later I was surprised to see on TV that Austria has nominated this very same woman for the song contest. It was 2 days before the song contest took place and I thought that I must not miss the contest this time.

Normally I do not look the contest because I am not very interested in this kind of music. But if something like this and from my very country is participating, it is a must. So I watched the contest from the beginning and was absolutely surprised from the performance of  Conchita. She was starting as number 11 and after I saw here, all the other candidates coming later were just boring and the only thing I wanted was to see Conchita again.

Obviously Conchita was ranked number 2 from the book makers, so maybe there was a chance for here to even win. Reason enough for me to watch the whole thing until the end. When the counting of votes began, it immediately became interesting because from the very beginning, Austria was a front runner.

When Austria took over the first place and kept staying there, it got more and more exciting. I was seldom so proud of my country like that very Saturday night, when Conchita won the contest! This is a sign for Europe that we are one of the most tolerant and modern regions in the world. I am not sure if something like this, that a bearded woman gets voted to win a song contest could happen in any other country or area in the world. I am proud of Europe and proud of Austria to have the courage to have nominated Conchita.

Katschberg

Katschberg

Katschberg

We made our yearly winter holidays  again in Mauterndorf, Austria. Luckily in this area of the Alpes there was a lot of snow this year.

Though this winter was much too warm, a couple of weeks ago it was snowing very very heavily in the southern region of Austria. I was surprised because I have never seen so much snow in this skiing area. Especially in the skiing region Katschberg / Aineck there was extremely much snow.

On the picture you can see me in the middle of a famous slope in Katschberg. It is famous for its steepness, and because there were not too many people skiing, it was possible to carve down the hill using the full range of the slope, left to right.

Katchberg is the best skiing area in the region where I grew up. But one day we made a trip to one of the bigger areas reachable within an hour with the car. This time we choose Schladming where the last winter world championship was held. Schladming is great, one of the best skiing areas I ever saw.

The newest book about Apple is great. I ordered the book in advance due to an offer from Amazon.

This book really gave me some new ideas about the person and the company. I was already very impressed by the famous book about Steve Jobs. And this book is also very interesting.

First to the person of Jony Ive. He is another example for successful people who got their talent kind of inherited from their parents. In this case it was his father who was already a famous designer responsible for education in UK. Its like Picasso who’s father was arts teacher on a university in Spain.

Second to Apple. Obviously the company has a very detailed process description for all processes, from design to development, production and marketing. I never thought about something like this. Remarkable! Another good reason for defining and describing the processes in the company.

Workouts 2013

Workouts 2013

A sportive year is ending. I did my last workout on my cross country skies today and finished with it the sport activities of the year 2013.

Since I started tracking my activities with www.endomondo.com last year, I do much more sport. At least, I have the feeling and always a good reason to go out for a ride on my bike or for a run. This year, I did even more than last year, partly because I participated at Gigathlon, but partly also because I am tracking my workouts.

In total I did 2500 kilometers, not counting skiing and so on where you don’t measure the distance. About 1000 on the bike on the street, 500 on the mountain bike, which was much more than last year, 600 cross country skiing, 250 running and a bit skating and swimming.

Looking forward to next year, which I will start next weekend. My target is to do more running and the same from all the others disciplines.

Cross country skiing

Cross Country Skiing

Cross Country Skiing

This year, on 1st of December there was already enough snow in Einsiedeln so that it was possible to open the cross country skiing slope. I started immediately with the winter training. The weather was sunny and the slope very well prepared.

This morning I started very early, at 8 am and sun was just raising when I was already behind lake Sihlsee. I stopped and quickly did a photo of the beautiful panorama with the lake and the mountains in the background.
