500 takes Abarth!

Fancy a city hot rod, 1.4 turbo, 150 wild horses and going 130 miles? Fiat is bringing back the famous Abarth in 2007.

Some memories are coming back when I once had an Autobianchi A112 Abarth for a night in 1989. Quite a little rocket and fun (1.0 four, 70 horses, 100 miles top speed)!

On screen soon: The life of others

Well, East Germany is history for years now, but the nightmare of being watched by the state's watchdogs remains. Chose life, and not another 1984.

Roadrunners and wild, wild west

Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris are performing on stage, soon in Zurich. Hmm, mixing the legendary Dire Straits sound with country stuff from Emmylou...

The album is called "All the Roadrunning" and Knopfler's guitar performances are as excellent as usual. And if you like Johnny Cash or Linda Ronstadt, you may get along with Emmylou as well.

Sweet dreams

Yummi - ever got hocked on these sweet donuts you saw in the movies, like Dunkin Donut?

Good news, there's a local one now in Meilen, Zürich, called Donatli. Delicious, crispy and really thick, just yummi!
