“A rough, never-ending love scene”

No, no and again no! Today I must not rest, for 149 years ago today, perhaps the most decisive encounter in richard wagner's life took place in munich, a life which, as is well known, was by no means lacking in decisive encounters: on the afternoon of 4. May 1864 king ludwig ii received me. In the munich residence, the poet-composer, whose writings and works he had admired from an early age and whom, after he had become king of bavaria at the age of only eighteen, he had sought from a high-ranking court official, was dear to him. Wagner had just fled from vienna at that time because of his debts.

Because wagner's two-volume autobiography my life just on 3. The letter of may 1864 ends, but in his own words there are only brief comments about this legendary meeting. That same day, at the hotel bayerischer hof, he wrote to his mother's friend eliza wille, with whom he had just spent a few days in swiss safety:

"dearest friend! I would be the most ungrateful person if i did not immediately report my boundless happiness to you! You know that the young king of bavaria loves to visit me. Today I was taken to him. He is, alas, so beautiful and spiritual, soulful and glorious, that I fear that his life must be lost like a cursed goddess's dream in this common world. He loves me with the intimacy and ardor of first love: he knows and knows all of me, and understands me as my soul. He wants me to stay with him forever, to work, to rest, to carry out my works; he wants to give me everything I need for this; I am to finish the nibelungen, and he will carry them out as I wish. I am to be my absolute master, not a bandmaster, nothing but me and his friend. And he understands everything seriously and exactly, as if we both, I and she, were talking to each other. All need shall be taken from me, I shall have what I need – only with him shall I stay. What do you say? – what do you say? – it is not unheard of? – this can be other than a dream? – think how moved I am! A thousand heartfelt greetings! My luck is so rough that I am quite shattered by it. You cannot imagine the magic of his eye: if only it remains alive; it is a miracle that is too unimaginable!" And in the postscript it still says: "do not spread anything! Nothing in the newspapers! Everything is intimate and should remain so!"

Court idyll and ultrasound

Tuesday afternoon, half past two, in grobziegenfeld. The scent of lavender drifts from the farm garden across the yard, snowy ducks take a nap in the shade of a tractor. The warm sun makes the wheat field on the edge of the court glow golden.
A sow grunts her comment, as if in approval, to henrik gieger's statement: "she's a real trooper." In the middle of the farm idyll, the young man in the female protective suit and with the ultrasound device, the so-called pregtone, in his hand, it's all about the whole thing: he takes the practical final exam to become a farmer.
This year, a total of 45 youngsters will be tested by the coburg office for agriculture, food and forestry on five days. 28 pruflinge are graduates of the coburg vocational school and have undergone a classic dual training program. 17 are graduates of the farmer training program at the bamberg office for food, agriculture and forestry – career changers who already have an auberschulische education and have acquired the essential content in the evening or in block courses over three years.
The theoretical part, the written examination, will take place next week. Then knowledge in economics and social studies is tested. Henrik gieger from klosterlangheim is one of eight trainee farmers taking part in the practical part of the final examination on the piglet breeding farm of the schwarzmann family in the award-winning juradorf village.
"The graduates can choose whether they want to be tested on cattle or pigs", explains thomas schwarzmann, landlord, prufer and expert advisor at the office for agriculture, food and forestry in bayreuth in personal union. "An apprentice has chosen a chicken farm as a training company", adds vocational school teacher tanja schilling. She is rooting for her proteges in grobziegenfeld. In two sections, divided into morning and afternoon, the graduates have to answer questions from two auditors each.

Modern farms

As romantic as village life may seem at first glance, most farms today are modern businesses that keep up with the times and face up to technical and economic challenges. To run a farm like this, farmers need technical know-how as well as expertise in crop and animal production – a broad-based knowledge that the pruflinge in grobziegenfeld have to demonstrate. Excitement is part and parcel of exams. But the man from klosterlangheim seems self-confident. "Of course, there are subject areas that suit you more than others", he admits critically, but remains confident. The 19-year-old and his colleagues answer questions about livestock breeding: how do they assess a group of piglets in terms of their fattening characteristics?? What is the purchase price? What is the documentation for the use of medicines and a change in stock?? How to calculate a mixture with the available feed for the same group of piglets? And they solve tasks on crop production: prepare all the work for sowing suitable winter barley in the trial farm on a flat of 2.5 hectares. Calculate the manure requirement for this area of barley. Assess the existing barley crop on the farm. They also have to answer questions on the operational safety and technical adjustment of agricultural machinery. "To ensure equal opportunities, because not all training companies have the same machines, the trainees can take a look around their training company beforehand and familiarize themselves with everything", explains thomas schwarzmann.

Prospective farmers need to be familiar with all aspects of the job, even if they go on to specialize later in their careers. Like henrik gieger. He completed his training on a pig fattening farm, while his parents' farm is used for agriculture. So he becomes a farmer because it is expected from home? "Rather not", says the klosterlangheimer with a smile. His parents had also supported it, he had learned another profession.
But he has grown into agriculture, he admits critically. For him, the test is not the end of the road. "I want to become a technician." And it sounds almost blackmerian when he says that hardly any other profession is so varied. It varies with the seasons. "You are in nature and always have something to do." And as if in approval, the sows don't grunt now, but the haflingers max and moritz snort, who could almost look over the shoulder of the klosterlangheimer during the final examination talk in the barn.

However, the first 45 minutes were not a rough spab. And in the second half, too, mexico seemed closer to the winning goal than jogi’s eleven to the equalizer.

1000 liters of beer were prepared as around 900 visitors streamed onto the piazza of the adidas outlet on sunday evening. But the spectators were like the german team that evening: not yet in the right mood for the world cup. After only 35 minutes, the german team was already trailing 1:0. Accordingly, long faces could also be seen on the fan mile at adidas, even though not as many spectators as expected turned up.
