Two Crosses Talking of final destinations ours soon came in sight along with what seemed to be gathering of Belted Galloway cattle congregated around the newish ‘ Two Crosses in the Turf ‘ stone. I must say the normal colour of Dartmoor Galloways is black as represented in this bunch but also there were some Red Belted Galloways which always remind me of a cream toffee. Having reach the car I quickly bundled the dog into the boot to avoid any unfortunate incidents with both him and the cattle, these Galloways can be some aggressive little sods when they want to be. So all in all a vey enjoyable and relaxing trundle and perfectly timed for solitude.
The unwillingness of German judges to lock up unsocialized walking time-bombs already known to the police has claimed a victim in Cologne on New Year’s Eve. Two criminal foreigners, free to terrorize their neighbors despite drug-related and violent crimes, killed a Turkish husband and father who tried to get them to behave. It happened in a sector of the city called Bickendorf — a district notorious for years for immigrant violence and bordering on the thoroughly Islamized Ehrenfeld. There was also knife-play at night in the immigrant milieu of right-bank Cologne-Vingst, where “Antifa” pastor Meurer is collecting for the building of a mosque and reading masses against Pro-Köln. But no one was killed.
The German language through the OHG period was still predominantly a spoken language, with a wide range of dialects and a much more extensive oral tradition than a written one. Having just emerged from the High German consonant shift, OHG was also a relatively new and volatile language still undergoing a number of phonetic , phonological , morphological , and syntactic changes. The scarcity of written work, instability of the language, and widespread illiteracy of the time thus account for the lack of standardization up to the end of the OHG period in 1050.
