Although we aren’t technically the owner of our new property yet – because the administration tend to slow things down, as always – we had to start to pack our stuff up. We bought a 20′ container to stack the majority of our belongings in it, but first we had to put in an additional […]
Our future starts now!
By christianmakesstuff in Allgemein, Hot News, Property Development, The American Way Tags: Wild West of Germany
The course is set. Finally we were lucky to find a property for sale we could afford, that has a good size (for German standards) and is located, where we could imagine to live and build our dream. Not an easy task in Germany, where way too much is regulated, forbidden and unwanted by the […]

Somehow you had it comming! It probably was clear as daylight that this topic would show up sooner or later. Here you go. We just spent around nine hours to render 17½ lbs beef suet into a little more than 8 qts of tallow canned in recent bought Mason Jars. We just got ourselves into […]
Merry Christmas y’all!

Reality vs. expectations. Taking a Christmas selfie shouldn’t be that a task. More than ever now-a-days because even high tech devices has become idiot proof in so many ways. But our endeavor to accomplish that kind of knickknack at this year’s Christmas Eve turned out to be a parable how even little things could become […]
Digital migration complete
By christianmakesstuff in Hot News
We had to do it! Initially ourgoodplace.com was hosted by WordPress but we had to learn very quickly that this came with too many limitations, even after we upgraded our contract. Unknowingness leads sometimes to unnecessary expense and helplessness. To get a quick and functioning solution we met with a professional and ask for help […]
New Car New Luck?
By christianmakesstuff in Allgemein, Blog Post
For about the last five years I was forced to use a small car, because I couldn’t afford to buy and maintain a bigger one. The German government punishes you as much as they can for owning a big car. They somehow reserve that “luxury” for richer people, by cashing dishonest high car taxes, unhealthy […]

Let me introduce you: These are Minna & Leeloo, my two Bengal mix siblings. After so many years wanting a cat (or even cats), but never had the chance to, I finally got those two sweeties by pure coincidence, a happy chance! They came just in the right time into my life during a very hard mental period I had to struggle with.
If you are a cat owner too you will understand my love expressions to them. So, there is no doubt they deserve a better place too.
Lost in Digitality

Trying to get off the scrap heap. Beside the typical minor ailments that comes with getting older it has lost most of the downsides that came along just very few generations ago.

Our first teaser is out now! After about 12 hours of tikering our first Video Opus is online. Just a kind of a picture slide show, but with neat music and a good pace. The clip was made with only onboard resources, because we have nothing else to show you at the moment other than […]
Ready? Homesteady? Go!
By ourgoodplace in Blog Post Tags: change life, Germany is not the best place to be, know your place, money money money
Not so fast! Our preconditions for this journey aren’t the best moneywise, but we have to give it a try nevertheless, because we have no other choice and times will certainly not get better in upcoming years. We have no nest egg to pay out of for what we plan and we haven’t certain incomes […]
