I would just like to say a big “Thank You” and “Danke Schön” to all my advertisers for the latest issue of “Das Schwarze Brett – Christmas Edition”. It can be found here:
I promised them all a mention in a blog post and here they are.
First of all, I would like to thank my first two advertisers, which are Hannelore Nolte with Nolte Log Homes Ltd. and Beatrice Schreiber with the Bel Art Gallery Inc.
Bel Art Gallery Inc. would like to welcome you to the World of Fine Arts. Available for you is an excellent collection of originals, limited edition prints and sculptures from fine local and internationally acclaimed artists.

Sometimes people contact me out of the blue. One of them is Erwin Baumgartner from Switzerland who loves to travel to BC & Alberta and George Hartmetz from Kelowna who is looking for a companion who knows how to cook.
Finally, last, but not least, if you have ever wanted to move to Kelowna and you love to cook, here is your chance for a fresh start in a beautiful city in BC. George is looking for someone to live in and who will spend time as a companion.
The Whitecaps were not advertisers, but they did let me interview their new goalkeeper Stefan Marinovic who played in Germany for a number of years and was originally from New Zealand. Read all about him in “Das Schwarze Brett”, found on www.magcloud.com (type Das Schwarze Brett” into the search bar).
Robert Holler is half German and half from a First Nation. Here is his story:
My Father was born in Friedberg Germany in 1934, and he moved to Kanada in 1960 where he met my mother, a Native woman from the Bear clan, Ojibway Nation, i was born April 20th, 1966 in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.
My beating German heart coupled with my first Nation’s skin colour has been somewhat of an anomaly for me; I always felt i was too brown for Germany and too German for First Nations as per my work ethic and driven nature.
Learning to combine both cultures inside me has been a life long journey. Coupled with a series of learning experiences, i have always embraced my German Culture, but it has only been the last 6 years that development of both cultures existing together has been a formula for moving forward.
As a result I returned to Schooling at a Nature College, got elected Chief of Student council, formed a basketball and foods program. After college I kept the basketball program going and started a non-profit society called Nations Warriors Wellness Society right here in Vancouver, utilizing the strengths of both cultures to co-exist together. Citing both the German and Native Nations are tribal by nature and can work together in harmony to create magnificent opportunities in the community.
