Zurich (EN) : Zurich 02.04.2020: Hacking, Laughing & Brewing

 
 

Good Morning Ronster

 

Easter is soon upon us and that is the harbinger of change and the warmer months. But more importantly it is a time when you can eat your own body weight in chocolate. My friends at master chocolate manufacturers Sprüngli have very kindly offered to send any needy Ronsters two sets of little chocolate bunnies so check out the competition here and explain why biting the head of one of theses cute little things appeals to you. Remember, postal services are saturated at this time so if you want to order stuff online for Easter make sure you order early. (like now)

 

In other news…well, as we are all stuck at home there is no other news. Please stay home, stay healthy and look forward to the party when all this is over.

 

Give my love to the city. (from your home)
Ron’s Signature

Audiolicious: Music From The Ether

 

Once again the DJ’s are out in force to entertain us. This Friday the MAW lounge will be presenting electronica DJ sets from 6pm until 11pm.

Also on Friday from 8pm until 11pm The Original Mix will be streaming a one hour set from DJ Onur Özman. For added spice he will play only his own productions, hopefully without repeating himself.

Maybe you have seen the Human Jukebox? If you have seen him you’ll remember him. Well, this Saturday at 7pm, you will have the opportunity to stream him direct to your living room. For more info, click here.

Well, they explain it better that i ever could so click here find out more and if you want to participate (the deadline is midnight tonight by the way.) Could you be the person that comes up with the “Eureka,” moment. I really hope so…

Sport: Appy To Stay Fit

 

It’s hard to be as trim and sexy as me. It takes years of self-denial and a lifestyle that would make the warriors of Sparta complain. But with the gym shut and being stuck at home how am i supposed to maintain my body beautiful. Well, i have a favourite app and for the duration of next month downdogapp.com are offering their fitness apps for free. Give them a try, the yoga app is great.

Comedy: Stand Up and Be Counted

 

If you’ve run out of things to watch on Netflix (i’m dreading the end of the third series of Ozarks and Better Call Saul,) comicshambles.com are steaming live comedy sets every night of the week with some pretty big names from UK comedy. You can watch for free but please leave a tip if finances allow it…

Drinking: Beer Here Now

 

Last week i wrote about growing your own plants from delivered seeds. In the new Corona world order self sufficiency is vital so what could be more important than brewing your own beer. Yes folks, it is possible to brew your own beer at home with brewing kits (like these ones,) that are available for delivery so if you are looking to find something practical and fun this might be the thing. But…i already have one of these kits so I am going to brew some fabulous Ron Orp Brau and although, sadly, you are unlikely to be able to taste it i will keep you posted on every part of the process, including all explosions i cause.

Whilst online courses such as Babbel and Duolingo help they are no substitute for feedback from experiences teachers. Fortunately the online model has worked successfully for language teaching for years so here are a couple of recommendations. Hit the button to find out more...
