Inspired by Derek Sivers, this page includes a sample of what I’m thinking about and working on right now.

Still in the home office. But that’s good. It’s going well.
The children are now both going to kindergarten and they are having fun, I’m glad.
I have changed my username on Micro.blog. I will also change it on other platforms. About a year ago, I thought that the username must be my real name. Now I don’t like this thought anymore. Then I thought for a long time about what I could use. A username should be catchy, cool and special. In the end, I came up with one that brings back wonderful childhood memories for me: ohBananaJoe. It is a mixture of a wonderful movie with Bud Spencer as Banana Joe and the “oh” as part of the title song. Maybe it’s stupid, maybe it’s cool, but at the moment I can live with it quite well.
The building of our house continues to stagnate. The choice of building company - my decision - was bad. The externally engaged planner there is terrible. Nothing is progressing. Special requests are not accepted. A catastrophe. I would like to cancel it, but I can’t do any more.
We have a new car. After our VW Golf had an engine failure (just 10 years old) I found a great used VW Passat for good money with only 18.000 km on the speedometer.
Apart from that: Well, I feel sometimes better, sometimes worse. Not physically, everything happens in my head. Maybe it is the Corona situation, maybe it is something I prefer to keep to myself. But for my family I am strong.
