Good Morning Everyone!  Welcome to our Cleveland German radio Show!

Happy Sunday Everyone!!

Arbor Day is here and it is the national holiday in the United States for appreciating and planting trees.
A tree is known by its fruit; just as people by their deeds.
A good deed is never lost and people who shows courtesy reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

I think kindness is one of the most underrated virtues. Many people do not realize the power of kindness and often view the characteristic as a weakness. That’s really too bad since demonstrations of kindness have the power to change lives.
More often than not, it doesn’t require much extra effort to be kind. Acts like holding open a door for someone else, writing a note, or making a meal someone can all be small, but meaningful gestures.

That is why the CLEVELAND GERMAN RADIO SHOW (CGRS) supports the German-American Peace Initiative , the Worlds Children Peace Monument (WCPM) and encourages all to do so too here at home and share it to other all around the World. If you’re trying to find a way to thank someone for their kindness and support in your life, RIGHT NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT!
When you do a good deed for someone, you make their day a little better and I think that doing something nice for others can make your day a little better too.

German Radio Show!  Thank you, Paul!  And here is a special song just for you!


Do you know any rascals?  I am sure some of you can relate to those 2 michevious kids, Max und Moritz.  They were always getting themselves in trouble! Then this German word could come in handy.  It is called Rabauke!

A Rabauke puts the entire neighborhood at risk. Nobody can stop them - not even their parents. No tree is too high, and no puddle too deep. Whenever a Rabauke is on the loose, there's something brewing.

A Rabauke is a particularly rambunctious child or teen. The kid's parents try their best, shouting things like, "Hey Rabauke, don't shred your pants again at the playground!" or "All the kids in the neigborhood are scared of you!"

The word came into use in Germany at the beginning of the 20th century. It stems from the old French word ribaud, meaning rascal or villain. The German language has a male and female version for words referring to people, but for Rabauke, only a male version exists. Why is that?

German How to use "Rabauke" in a sentence
Der König lehnte die Ernennung zunächst mit der Begründung ab, er sei ein Trunkenbold und Rabauke sei.
The king initially refused the appointment on the grounds that he was a drunkard and a bully.

Der Anwalt und seine Frau sind Eltern dreier teils halbwüchsiger Jungs, allesamt ziemliche Rabauken.
The lawyer and his wife are parents of three boys, some of whom are teenagers, all of whom are quite roughnecks.

Und wir haben unseren eigenen Rabauke, und David spielt die Musik für dich

12 German Songs to Help You Learn German Faster
If you’re learning German, have you thought about using German songs to help out?

German is the first language I spoke. I was born in Austria, so German was the first language I learned once I starting talking.  It remains one of my favourite languages.  I also went to German School on Saturdays at Banater Halle when I was in elementary school up until Junior High School.  

That said, I remember well how frustrating it could be. I had to wrap my head around German grammar and memorise the intimidating long words. We had to
memorize poems and learn songs.  But, it was very helpful!

I would like to mention that music can be a great tool for your language learning. You can learn slang, idioms, contractions, modern words…
All of it in context, and while having a good time! Some of our listeners like to sing along with some of our songs we play.  They are happy when they
hear songs of their past.  

Whether you want to introduce a new technique to your German learning strategy or are just looking for German song recommendations, it is all up to you!
There are no set rules.  Just have fun and learn at the same time!  For more information, you can go to our Cleveland German Radio Show Facebookk Page.

cgrs word of the day



Do you ever want to give a gift to a friend, but don't know what to give?  Well, why not try making a Herman the German Friendship Cake?  All you have to do is make a Herman the German starter recipe to give to your friends.  I am sure they will love it, and they can then start their own little chain.

Have you ever heard of a Herman friendship Cake before? No? I hadn’t either but a couple of weeks ago a friend gave me a tub of doughy mixture that I was to talk to, stir and nuture for ten days before passing on to four friends and cooking the remains. So instead of chain letter, think chain cake. Sharing is caring and what a lovely gift to give away. Do you want to know more?

A Herman friendship cake is something that money cannot buy,  but you can give it away. Heman is alive . He grows slowly because of the yeast process. It also takes ten days before you can eat him. A Herman friendship cake shouldn’t be put in the fridge and also requires a lid or to be covered by a tea towel. He grows at room temperature.

I did a little googling and came up with the starter recipe for Herman so if you fancy starting your own little chain then you can.
A Herman Friendship Cake Starter Recipe

Is Herman cake German?
Image result for Why is Herman cake called Herman?
BBC Good Food has a good recipe to start off your Herman the German friendship cake, even though the description is a bit sinister: "You have to keep Herman alive for ten days then bake him and share with friends."

So, why not start your own Herman the German Friendship Cake?  You can find the Herman the German Friendship Cake starter recipe on our Clevelan German Radio Show Facebook Page.



=================  START MOTHERS DAY  MAY 14, 2023  ============================


Good Morning Everyone!  Welcome to our Cleveland German radio Mothers day program !

Happy Sunday Everyone!!

A Mother is someone who not only gives birth to her child but she is the one who gives birth to hopes, aspirations and fosters faith to fulfil those hopes. The word mother probably has been derived to spell the essence of someone who is made for others. So it’s quite essential that we must celebrate the love that she has inside her heart which can nurture the Universe. Mother’s day has been dedicated to the power of a mother and the calmness of her presence. Mother’s day is celebrated throughout the world and various groups of people use different methods to celebrate their Mothers. People send Mother’s day wishes and Mother’s day quotes to their moms to make them feel their worth and their contribution to the society.

When Mother’s Day comes around I think about and appreciate all of the women in my life. I think about my love for my own mom, Irmgard, of course who has passed on, and how I am eternally grateful for all of the sacrifices she had to make so I could become the woman I am today. I am thankful to have had  amazing grandmothers and aunts who treated me like their own daughter, and am grateful I have had such a wonderful mother-in-law, ANN, who also passed on.

The phrase “it takes a village to raise a child” conveys the message that it takes many Mothers to provide a safe, healthy environment for children, where children are given the security they need to develop and flourish, and to be able to realize their hopes and dreams. I was fortunete to  grew up in the village of the Sachsenheim where many ladies there who acted as mothers to us children and taught the many things that us kids needed to make a good life for ourselves. So send messages to them also to tell them how much you love them and what great mothers you think they are.

Without the immense sacrifices of our mothers, we would not even be in this beautiful world today. Apart from bringing us here to witness the light of this world, our mothers have also raised us with pure love, affection, and care. Although we may not always have the time to express our emotions to them, on Mother’s Day, we can cast away all shyness and take some time from our busy lives to express our gratitude to our mothers. Therefore, we should all take some time to show her how thankful we are for her sacrifices for us.

In Gedanken an dich | Duo WeR

alte kameraden  heino

This week-end everybody is off in Germany. It's Christi Himmelfahrt (Ascension Day), but it is also Vatertag wochende (Father's Day).
In some areas, it is called Männertag or Herrentag (men's or gentlemen's day), mostly in the Eastern regions. Many men (not necessarily fathers) go on a hiking or bike tour, often with a Bollerwagen (handcart) in tow with the essentials for an outing like this.
The tradition of Father's Day on Ascension Day may be rather young (the Nazis decreed it Father's Day in 1936), Ascension Day though, the day when Jesus ascended to heaven, and the tradition to walk the land in a procession to pray for good harvest has been around since the Middle Ages. What started as a religious ceremony, eventually turned into men taking walks together and having a good time. This is when the term "Männertag" or "Herrentag" was established.
Restaurants and pubs jumped on the bandwagon and started offering special menus or even tours for men. Many places nowadays also offer tours, like in a horse drawn carriage (Kutsche).
Obviously, not all men or fathers go on drinking tours, I mean hiking tours. There are plenty who spent time with their families or have Männertag without all the drunkenness, littering, and general mischief.
Interestingly, or maybe logically, Father's Day is celebrated on different dates throughout the world.
