performance 2011 = pain, pain, pain ;-(

what an ugly year at the financial markets!
source: facebook

what the hell happened with me and the markets in 2011? well, the base of my former success, the (steady) rising gold + silver + commodities prices, was not the only difference this time .... unlike the last few years, in 2011 was the gold silver rally in late august unfortunately OVER with an all-time-high @ $1,921 just read my euphoric comment(s) + watch the funny screen shots as the gold price crossed the 1,900 burden ... and later on came the 2008-like-crash in mining stock prices ;-(

if u dont understand why im gonna separate between trading and investing results, its because traders and investors are 2 different species of our dear homo sapiens financialis. just think abt it for a second or two ...

traders = paranoid dreamers who fight against insiders, against political manipulators (eg interventions of central banks in the currency + bond markets), often even against fundamental conditions and own believes in order to snap off few bucks out of short-term movements of the financial markets. (jaro gruber)

investors = stupid idiots who sell their stocks even for a price next to nothing and then wonder why fell 'the markets' that low (jaro gruber)

of course, both traders and investors if they succeed have to pay taxes, support the society and oppose their ugly bloodsucking speculator image made by politics & mainstream media in order to direct the public outrage away from politicians. what if they lose? easy, then they lose their own money and nobody cares abt them .... go homo sapiens financialis go :)
  • my micro trading account: approx 2-3% of all funds; commodity CFDs (natural gas, silver, wheat, orange juice, coffee, sugar, corn, rice, ...). yes, my swing + position trading worked quite fine again, ive made 6k €uros from january till july, which means a YTD trading-performance of +82.5% in 2011, my 2nd best result ever, next to crazy +347% in 2010 ... not bad, isnt it? btw, my peak performance mark was above +10k in june, but then ive lost 4k in 4 days while on holidays. of course, u can go through the july blog post linked above if u are interested in trading psychology issues :-). after the worldwide stock exchanges and my broker consequently increased the margin requirements (e.g. in silver CFDs +700%) and i was forced to provide much much much more money in order to keep a similar line of open positions, ive decided to quit my trading completely. the 2nd reason to quit was my (absolutely wrong) assumption that the gold/silver mining stocks are going to take off and rally for the rest of the year and thus ive mobilized all financial resources i could get .... what a mistake! btw, im not disappointed abt my decision. why not? damn, cos of my hyper-inflationary scenario i was commodities long only but the markets reacted more like in 2008 which means there was panic all over the board (commodities, equities, the most sovereign bonds, ....) and i would definitely lose money, just look at the development of commodity prices since summer till now. well, lets move to the investing part of my 'performance'.
  • my investing account(s): approx 97-98% of all funds; mostly gold + silver + commodity stocks, few energy stocks (esp. green energy), few internet + technology stocks, 1 silver ETF (~ my cash position), 2 different oil call options (one sold in november). PAIN + PAIN + PAIN ... except the first 2.5 months ive felt like in the crashy 2008, u know? there was such a selling pressure in late march, may, july, september, october, november, december ... OMD ;( ... i had to sell few of my positions and few others have been sold by my broker because of margin calls in the sept/oct crash etc and so fort ...  well, the balance of my actions in 2011 was approx plus 60 €uros including my tax loss selling of my silver ETF on xmas eve at a loss of 4.7k in order 2 reduce the tax impacts of my remaining trading/investing profits ... not 2 bad u think? wrong, wrong, wrong my friends ... the problem are the open positions, u know? well, ive lost close to 100k of last year's fictive profits .... it hurts like hell .... of course, i consider my investing account rather as 'numbers' and not as 'money', but 100k could easily buy a new car and leave 50k for additional purchase of mining stocks at these soooooooo depressed levels ... it hurts like hell again ... what to do know? nothing, what else? yep, our 11 years old car cant go into a museum yet and has to survive a year or 2 longer, who cares?
any additional insights? well, after the tax payers all over the rescued the big banks in 2008/2009 the financial crisis turned into sovereign debt crisis (greece, irland, usa, italy, ...); the nuclear disaster in fukushima/japan was not bad enough in order to quit usage of nuclear energy and nuclear weapons (NATO's uranium ammunition 'left' all over the war places); the senseless western colonial wars continued in iraq, afghanistan, libya, .... ; the exorbitant western agricultural subsidies caused additional bankruptcies of farmers in 3rd world and thus hunger + starvation again (esp eastern africa ... btw, the situation there is so hopeless that few desperate folks try to survive as pirates ... OMD, pirates in 21th century!!!); the CIA financed arab spring movement caused revolutions in tunisia, egypt, syria, .... and finally, there is a big big BIG HOPE for 2012+ as the #OccupyWallStreet movement started in NYC and could spread itself around the globe. finally do people like u and me claim for justice + freedom + real democracy + a new society ruled by people and not by huge corporations & illuminati & corrupt governments ...

any lessons learned in 2011? the financial markets are not a one-way-road.

my outlook for 2012+ is not much different from previous years ... the fiat money crisis will continue and become worse and worse until the #OccupyWallStreet movement finally replaces the ruling 'elites' by real democracy and the fraudulent paper money system will be replaced by s.th. else, prolly by gold/silver backed currency(ies)

what to say after my whole financial mess is completely revealed and 2011 is in few hours over? what abt a slogan as every year? ok. merry crisis + happy new fear! huhhhhh? not pessimistic enough? ok, my 2nd trial: merry xmas + happy new year + occupy2012, my friends ;-)

skiing with my youngest daughter

folks, u have probably thought all my life is about #OccupyWallStreet, havent u? no it isnt .. ive been skiing at zugspitze, the top of germany (2,962m [= 9,718 ft], skiing area up to 2600 meters) on the border to austria with my youngest daughter 2day ...

the weather was a catastrophy cos approx 95% of the time there was such an ugly fog we couldnt see each other. well, the reason weve changed our plan and went to the glacier at the top of germany was the quite warm temperature elsewhere (-1 to +2 degrees celsius) and a danger of rain. please dont let me get started on skiing when it rains and so dont ask my eldest daughter ~ WE WILL NEVER AGAIN SKI WHEN IT RAINS ~ it is as easy as that :-)

yep, at zugspitze it was cold enough (-7 celsius) and even if both of us are not 100% healthy we have enjoyed our 1st skiing this season. wanna few mor pics? here we go, enjoy my thinny picasa album (7 pics)


#OccupyZugspitze :-)

so how 2 crash this political-military-system? thats easy, my dear! the most (western) countries are bankrupt, really bankrupt... how the hell they still can afford to pay its police + military, to subsidy nuclear energy/industry, to subsidy its (well selected, not all) bankrupt banks, to subsidy nature destroying biofuels and other agricultural products and last but not least even afford 2 bomb other countries as the north atlantic terror organisation (NATO) led by the USA does all over the world? its all abt paper money which can be printed at no costs and used 2 pay its soldiers, banksters, bureaucrats ;-(( ... so whats 2 do? we just have to CRASH its MONETARY BASE => lets buy gold + silver + real estate + real stuff + withdraw (most of) our money out of the banking system ... (nothing on debt, of course)  .... go gold & silver bugs go and lets crash that fraudulent undemocratic unfair fiat money system NOW!

lets start immediately, just like i did, look what a nice SILVER ive got for paper €uros yesterday ... and yes, there are many folks buying precious metals right now, my favorite coin dealer told me ... anyway, lets hope 2012 will be a better year than 2011 was ...

investor lunch with vista gold 2day ...


a near term gold + silver producer in mexico + australia, a royalty interest in bolivia, 30% owner of midas gold corp, early stage projects in california / usa + indonesia, no debt, some cash, $125m worth of midas gold stock package, ... anyway, one of their properties in mexico (baha california) is their 'problem child' as the CEO mike told us cos of some environmental permitting issues ...

hell! poor me, all of my children are 'problem children', arent they? pls dont tell me that something always stays in the genes, my dear ... i fear it could be true :-)

so what 2 do? easy, same procedure as usual: ive bought few shares, applied 4 companys newsletter, gonna follow them on twitter / facebook / real life ... damn, ive again bought too expensive (at market opening) cos the gold & silver & mining stocks markets collapsed 2day again ;-( ... unfortunately, i mostly buy too expensive and often at market openings as i have no time + no patience to wait for the best possible entry and yes, ive sometimes also s.th. 2 do in my office job and thus cant wait for sale offers mr. market gives to the patient ... and on top i also dont have real time quotes (my broker charges it extra), so who cares? well, lets call that 'plan your trade and trade your plan' ;-)

anything else? coming soon or never :-)

go gold bugs go and lets crash the fraudulent paper money system NOW

#OccupyMunich plenum

the EineWeltHaus (EWH) aka One World House in munich

i've joined the plenum of munich's #OccupyWallStreet movement ('real democracy now' EDJM + united for global change oct 15) => OMG + OMG + OMG!

well, we have been about 30-40 people who joined in the OneWorldHouse in munich to discuss important topics, but we were not able to decide how to vote for or against anything in 2+ hours ... OMG :-( ... real democracy is difficult, my dears :-)

at least we have put 4 options together and will decide next time, besides other reasons also in order to give the other folks who couldnt be here a chance to vote as well :-). our proposals?
  • in the plenum
  • via twitter live stream
  • in the electronic poll at our website (only registered and personally known users)
  • in our facebook group (too dangerous as there could be few users with more than 1 account over-voting every important decision)
  • combination of few of this issues

anyway, everyone had a chance to participate and yes, we will speak abt the important issues next time
  • preparation of demonstration in munich on january 15th
  • administration of our facebook group
  • actions how to attract more supporters
  • xmas-party (scheduled for next week)
  • etc

anything else? coming soon or never ;-)

hell, hell, hell, what a difference! my dear, i've joined my wife's xmas party for her esoteric spiritual group lebensimpulse yesterday  ... nobody hassled, no reasons for quarrels, everyone helped to clean up the rooms afterwards and yes, there was a peaceful optimistic atmosphere all the time. what did these folks different? damn, do they probably have a common vision? do they know how to make our world a better place? is a common consciousness of many many like-minded people a better way to change the world  than demonstrations?

hell, let's awake the masses (middle class) anyway (source: facebook, #OWS group):

got it? well, now u know what is #OccupyWallStreet abt ... i see, a picture says more than 1,000 words => ♥ Я Ξ √ Ω L U T ↑ ☼ N ♥

#OccupyWallStreet #OccupyMunich

one of our banners ... btw, wanna join a similar movement in your city / area?

well, ive just spent a nice afternoon at the #OccupyMunich demonstration (its every saturday, my dear). the highlights 2day? imho the cherry hot wine punch + music by markus nagy :-)

this recording is from a demo 2 weeks ago, for better quality sound pls move 2 markus' website, there are few trailers available, like e.g. this bankruptcy song sung in 'bavarian german' ... sooo funny, soooo true ... enjoy + pls read below WHY we should protest ...


quote by pastor martin niemöller (english translation below):

„Als die Nazis die Kommunisten holten,
habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Kommunist.
Als sie die Sozialdemokraten einsperrten,
habe ich geschwiegen; ich war ja kein Sozialdemokrat.
Als sie die Gewerkschafter holten,
habe ich nicht protestiert; ich war ja kein Gewerkschafter.
Als sie die Juden holten,habe ich nicht protestiert; ich war ja kein Jude.
Als sie mich holten,gab es keinen mehr, der protestierte.

source: facebook

well, lets translate it to english:

as the nazis got the communist,
i was silent; i wasnt a communist.
as theyve imprisoned the social democrats,
i was silent; i wasnt a social democrat.
as theyve got the unionists,
i didnt protest; i wasnt a unionist.
as theyve got the jews,
i didnt protest; i wasnt a jew.
as they have got me, there was noone left to protest.

of course, the nazis and the current financial mafia + its 'new world order' is not completely the same, but in countries like afghanistan, iraq, libya, syria (soon?) we can easily see that even ten thousands killed folks do not matter, thus i dont stop fighting.

folks, lets stop the north atlantic terror organisation (NATO) + lets save the planet

xmas salary => xmas shopping => GOLD & SILVER companies

stolen from => ehhhm, borrowed from here (=source ;-)

next money withdrawn out of the banking system and placed in my 'savings column' ... well, my badly awaited extra salary will arrive at my account next wednesday, but my shopping is done already ... i simply couldnt resist the SALE prices all over the mining stocks board . folks, thats was my xmas shopping list 2day:
  • silver wheaton ~ bottom fishing 
  • new pacific metals ~ gold / silver in yukon / canada ~ company run by silvercorp's mngmt
  • jaguar mining ~ just bought more below $7 ~ the chinese take-over offer is @ $9.30
  • minaurum gold ~ my idea from this years precious metals fair
  • new dawn mining ~ gold in zimbabwe ~ yep, im gonna support the economy there and withraw all money from south africa instead cos i somehow feel theyre on the way to destroy their own country as rhodesia did 3 decades ago (the former switzerland of africa, pls dont google it, they have a new name and a still very sad present now, its simply too sad)
so lets balance my investing account next week 
go gold bugs go and lets crash the fraudulent paper money system NOW

by mistake in FFB


what a strange evening 2night! well, the best of all wives + me have landed in fürstenfeldbruck (FFB), a small city 20 km away from munich ... i havent been there for 3 years or longer, my dear... well, weve planned to visit a cocktail bar right behind munich, but theyve built a new road out there and yes, we didnt find the right turn and then it was too late ...

spontaneous as so often in the last time, we changed our plan and visited FFB, place we used to go swimming on weekends few years ago ... as tourist do, we stopped at the very centre and jumped into the 1st pub we could find, the 400 years old post hotel. the kitchen was closed already, thx goodness their polish waitress found some bread somewhere and yes, we have survived + had sooo nice time there ;-)

any lessons learned? yep, weve decided to go out once a week or at least every 2 weeks ... and yes, for some time we gonna try every time a new location ... you cant learn anything new by walking on your old paths all the time, u know?

#jarosells oil => pays taxes => #jarobuys vale + bhp billiton + rio tinto

what's the advantage of long blog titles? there is not much to add later on :-)

folks, please don't think the oil price is gonna collapse ... i would rather hold my trade till the end of january, but i couldn't ... well, my call option (call warrant) expired yesterday, so the goldman sachs guys sold it close to the daily low @ 3.50 €uros i think (brent oil was $113 per barrel yesterday) ... it is nice to be an emitter & market maker at one time, isn't it?

anyway, my trade from late march 2009 on brent oil and strike price $90 is 2.6 times the initial amount, so i've managed to make 160% profit on that thinny position ... unfortunately, the all-time-high for that paper was 4.82 €uros (probably when the oil price was $125 in april), so there could be even more money made, but i've somehow waited for a temporary (news driven) price spike which didn't come in the last 2 years  ... my dear, don't worry, i've one more open oil option, my bigger and less aggressive paper oil which runs one more year (till 11/12/2012) and has a strike price of only $70 (currently +117%) ...

why did i buy all these 3 major commodity producers and not any pennystocks this time? well, i just thought my always underfunded account will enjoy their fat dividends ;-)
  • vale (Companhia Vale do Rio Doce) ~ brasilian iron ore producer
  • bhp billiton ~ british/australian iron ore, coal, oil, base metals, potash etc producer
  • rio tinto ~ british/australian aluminium, copper, iron ore etc producer
as u can easily see, i've stolen (=source) that picture from my canadian oil explorer donnybrook 

andover ventures

next investor lunch 2day => a nice update on operations again ... hell, next time im going 2 post an andover ventures picture, promised ... will prolly have 2 steal one from companys website, haha :-)


there is not everything fine at andover cos they didnt put their trixie mine into production this year as theyve promised, buuuuut there is such a great perspective and such a nice shareholder structure (directors + insiders own biggest part of the company so lets hope they will act as owners and not as managers ;-) that ive bought all my andover shares back i had to sell during my margin calls horror in september/october and even few more => im glad to carry a bigger line of andover shares than ever before 

go gold bugs go  ... and silver, copper, zinc bugs as well, of course ...
btw, here u can read my insight on andover from their former investor event(s)

#OccupyWallStreet, #OccupyMunich

next demo in munich ... btw, there is every saturday a demo in munich organized / promoted by folllowing facebook group called 'real democracy now' and this FB group is also the source of all pictures posted in this blog: https://www.facebook.com/groups/185555744826877/

wanna join the movement in YOUR city / area? well, we claim we are the 99% but to be honest we are less than 1% by now ... of course, there are for sure 90+ per cent who are fu**ed or at least cheated by the fraudulent fiat money system and our corrupt politicians who transfer the nations wealth from the main street to the wall street, but there are still not enough folks who are willing to stand up, unite, fight against that fraudulent system ... but our number is growing, worldwide :-)

#occupyWallStreet, #occupyYourStreet, #occupyEverywhere:

music of the movement? well, there were many talented folks singing out there and even one famous german balladeer (konstantin wecker). anyway, i liked most this bob marley's 'movement' song performed by philip wienand:



what abt the text?

text part 1:

text part 2:

... and on top here u have my pictures from that great event / afternoon :-) ... and for those of you who already forgot the 1st worldwide action #united for #globalchange on october, 15th here comes the link to my former blog post ♥ Я Ξ √ Ω L U T ↑ ☼ N ♥

wanna learn more abt the #occupywallstreet movement (taken from one of its corresponding facebook groups):
The movement created by the occupation of Wall Street isn't about a park in New York city, it is about all of us. For too long we've allowed our rights to be stepped on. Our futures and financial freedoms have been sold to predatory companies that profit from our hardship and strangle our economy. We've allowed our government to be bought while the ceaseless turning of war machines in foreign lands ravage resources and destroy the environment. We cannot allow this system to stand anymore.

Occupy Wall Street has initiated a dialog which has, in just two months, raised awareness across the globe. Individuals are unplugging themselves from junk media and are getting plugged into a conversation that is of vital importance. Some are taking to the streets, possibly for the first time in their lives, to stand up for their rights and exercise their freedom.

Mayor Bloomberg and the NYPD can evict, brutalize and oppress the citizens of New York City but they cannot stop this movement. It is bigger than New York and it isn't going anywhere.

Stand up for your rights. Stand with the 99%!

btw, here is the link to the video of the performed song 'empört euch' by the star guest of the afternoon konstantin wecker :-)

alexco resource


an interesting update on alexco's properties + production + prospects by its major shareholder & CEO clynton nauman in munich 2day :-)

well, there is everything fine @ alexco:
  • rising silver production
  • no debt
  • profits high enough 2 finance the planned growth without any dilution
  • 2011 was be the 1st profitable year
  • the environmental division is also develops fine and gives the company advantages which the competition hasnt
  • theyve gold too
  • as ive told ya already, the CEO is the major shareholder, so he will prolly think like an owner and not like a manager (= greedy salary + bonus + size driven, senseless overpriced M&A seeking megalomaniac). that should benefit the shareholders a lot => dividends coming soon?
  • any other investors? yep, there were few names, but i only could remember eric sprottmaybe cos ive met him on friday last week ...
  • etc
nothing wrong out there? well, ive increased my alexco position on monday @ CAD 8.09 ... and yes, the stock closed @ CAD 7.29 today, which means i would get 10% more shares for the same money 2day ;-(. well, the equity markets are completely irrational and our dear homo sapiens financialis is currently sooooo fearful that he e.g. sold one of the biggest silver producers in the world, silver standard resources (SSO) 22% cheaper than yesterday only cos theyve published some lower resource estimation than before ... and a profit of $0.27 per share versus a loss a year ago ... and a cash balance of $356 million etc and so on ... well, ive increased my SSO position yesterday and thus such a dramatic price decline on day two hurts like hell, but when ive read the 'reasons' and recognized that SSO hardly will go bankrupt on this issue => i just thought WTF, WTF, WTF => too funny, isnt it? i just laughed and laughed and laughed abt the stupidity of investors / traders and yes, ive doubled my yesterdays SSO position, so i have double the size of stock which is currently 10% down => lets lean back + appreciate the pull back in a week or two or three? folks, whats your guess:  whos right this time, mr. market or me?

btw, my initial investment idea was born here ;-)

endeavour silver (TSX: EDR)

  • what abt dividends? well, they dont pay any yet, maybe next year, who knows? and yes, there was an metal 'dividend' this time, just look how pretty 1 oz Ag can be:
pls decide by yourself whats head whats tail, my dear ;-)
yep, the coin is different than the one from last 'dividend', isnt it?

  • tamaka gold ~ private company, going to go publich in late december / early january
  • etc

btw, i didnt get a picture with the key speaker this time (canadian billionaire eric sprott) cos i didnt like to wait for a break between his countless interviews  ... and yes, billionaires are fellows like you and me, they just patiently answer questions and try to explain their attitude

when will fiat (paper) money crash?

of course, the whole western world is already bankrupt but it still can afford to bomb iraq, afghanistan, libya ... and subsidy nuclear energy + banks + bionergy + many other planet destroying stuff ;-(. folks, lets stop it ASAP!

wanna see how bankrupt e.g. the USA is? just see the u.s. budget compared to a household budget below ...

=> the usa is bankrupt, no doubts ... but when will the system collapse? it seems to be a difficult question, but it isnt. many complicated looking things have an easy solution if we concentrate on the essentials, believe me ;-)

1st im gonna tell ya few don'ts:
  • dont follow the political comedy surrounding fiat money
  • dont try 2 remember the phony names and volume numbers of alll these 'rescue packages' out there 
  • dont care abt the ratings by moody's, S&P, fitch, ...
  • dont waste own time with reading / researching / writing abt paper money issues (you should prolly stop reading here and start doing the right stuff, shouldn't you? lol)
  • dont waste other people's time speaking / writing abt paper money issues 
  • dont keep any serious money in your bank account(s)
  • etc

2nd the stuff we definitely should do:
  • wear our fastest sneakers and run to the nearest ATM / bank / insurance in order 2 withdraw as much money as possible
  • buy real stuff (gold, silver, real estate, food, ...)
  • fire paper money as we germans did in 1923 
  • throw paper money away as hungarians did in 1946 
  • change the current politics via #OccupyWallStreet + #unitedforglobalchange or some other public movement
  • sleep well cos we knew we did the right things
  • etc

EASY, u see?

whats the good thing abt this ongoing (!) change of the collective consciousness regarding fiat money? well, in order to change the currrent fraudulent paper money system we dont need 2 'convert' all folks out there ... a so called criticall mass is enough .... thx goodness :-)


ready? steady? GO! go gold bugs go! ... and silver bugs as well :-)


go for the real things in life (not only in the financial markets)

salzburg / austria

the best of all wives and me have just spent 2 days in salzburg ("salt-castle" or mozart-city???), austria => great! yes, salt made this city rich and the riches made all that buildings possible which 2day provide salzburg the status of unesco's world cultural heritage ... simply salt, hmmmm :-)

my crazy wife has visited an (esoteric) healing seminar by richard bartlett. what abt me? well, on day #1 ive been in the most streets, churches, hills, castles of salzburg i believe ... i was sorry i couldnt meet mozart, prolly he is already dead ..... anyway, my feet hurt like hell .... but what to do tomorrow? no, im not going to run all that hills up and down again, no way! ----- well, i would prolly like to see the hellbrunn castle ... or shoudda try the bars tomorrow? or go outside the city? hmmmmm, any idea(s) out there?

well, my friends suggested i should eat as many mozartkugels / mozart balls as possible, but ive decided 2 do s.th. completely different:
  • hellbrunn castle ~ very very nice gardens, water / fountains, sculptures, inner architecture (rooms / paintings) as seen in the brochures cos i didnt like to visit the main attractions ZOO + the inside exhibition of this beautiful maison de plaisance 2day. why? my goal were the nearby alps ;-)
  • salt mine in bad dürrnberg ~ already the celts produced salt inside these hills! as there was not much else what could be used to preserve the food in the pre-refrigerator-era, salt was precious and costly for centuries (“white gold”). many centuries later, in the medieval age, there was already a mass production of salt via the leaching 'technology'. wanna more details? follow the museum-link ... imho is this museum a great new experience for those who havent been in a (salt) mine yet (like the one in bad reichenhall / germany) and on top a great opportunity to enter bavaria / germany without passport underground ;-)
  • celtic village ~ space filler instead of waiting 30 minutes for the salt mine guided tour, the ticket was included in the price of the salt mine visit and so were the hallein's museums later in the afternoon
  • lunch in bavaria ~ much better beer than in austria, just think abt the oktoberfest, my dear :-)
  • obersalzberg ~ i didnt like the spirit there and of course didnt visit hitlers eagle nest (kehlsteinheim) or the exhibition .... it would for sure depress me a lot, i see no reason 2 carry that feelings with me
  • hallein ~ a small city on the salzach river, celtic museum, the museum of "Silent Night" (German: "Stille Nacht, heilige Nacht") ~ a xmas carol composed by franz xaver gruber in 1818 .... hmmmm, do u think this guy and me are some kind of relatives and i could market that song in some way or the other? lol
  • salzburg ~ traffic jam

more pictures? here we go 2 my picasa-album (i hope u will enjoy this foto album even if the zoom function of my camara was broken :-)
