GETTING READY FOR FASCHING.

I was in Bonn a week early for the Beethoven Festival, and in Köln a couple of months early for Karneval, which gets going on 11 November (surely a more festive use of the eleventh day of the eleventh month than an armistice) although the heavy celebrating gets going in February, by which time Mobile has been celebrating for a month.  But while in Köln I picked up the Kölsche Grundgesetz, which are eleven sensible maxims to live by, Fasching or not.  Perhaps I'll count those down as Fasching Dienstag approaches.
