June 17, 2017 Hey sweeties! Update about what was going on with us.

June 16 and 17, 2017 Important Update

Hey my dear furends! It was a couple of things. First I was just really busy, & then our internet was having problems. Connection would be there, then gone again. Yesterday it was gone completely. And I needed to safe my remaining data for my 2 mobile devices internet. It’s working normally again normally it seems.

The important/serious part of the update comes now
Wednesday night at 8pm, police were suddenly and quietly positioning themselves in my street & neighborhood. No sirens, nothing. Really quiet. No one knew what was up. They told all the people to leave the pubs and restaurants, and leave the area or go into their buildings. The street was eerie & quiet. There were many police cars & the special unit that usually always comes for more serious things was there too. They had the big guns out.

They closed off all the streets around us and put their own police vans and cars into the streets as additional barriers. After they had done all of that, I saw a policeman from the special unit walk with a second one through my street. One was carrying that special bag that gets put over things that are suspected to be explosives. Those bags are able to contain the blast and any shrapnel and things they put into those self made ones to hurt people even more. Then I knew something was wrong. But still, I thought maybe they just found a lone luggage standing around somewhere and people got worried about it and called the police. Things like that happen and of course they always have to assume it might really be dangerous. I really thought it must be something like that.

But the next day (Thursday) I heard that we had an actual terrorist b.mb threat, that was apparently prevented thanks to a person from the middle east, who heard about a plan for this somewhere and called police right away. This might have really prevented something from happening, because police were here so quickly. Maybe the extremists who had planned this thing, where prevented from doing anything thanks to police being here. The attack was apparently planned for around 10pm, but police had already been here at 8pm, after the person had called them about what he heard. It was supposed to be an attack right here in my street. There’s a big church right near me and we had an important Christian holiday. Maybe that’s why.

On Thursday police were there all day too and they were there during the night too apparently. They still had their police vans as a barrier in all streets leading to my neighborhood and my street. Only pedestrians were able to pass. It was also because they didn’t want someone attacking with a car. My church had a lot of people there due to the Christian holiday. Buildings like ours had their entrances protected by a police van right in front of the entrance, and a couple police men. So no suspicious people could get into the buildings & do something in them possibly. There was lots of police all around us. Really a lot! On Friday it seemed it was all back to normal for the most part. They are still patrolling more than they usually do, but life started to be lived again normally. There is an event on the other side of the river (Our building is next to the river) and I saw that they have put their police cars there as barriers again, to prevent anyone from trying to attack with a car again.

Unfortunately I had a migraine on Thursday, and I felt extremely exhausted, because I had to haul stuff with some friends. The last bits of my stuff that a friend had stored for me in their storage room they didn’t need. But they move out and so I had to get my stuff. And I still felt really really exhausted yesterday. So that’s why we weren’t here really.

I am so sorry my dear friends and furends. I really am. I thank you all for your sweet comments. I also thank you all really really so much, for always being so understanding towards my frequent migraines and being offline often because of that.

Murli & I love you all💕 Thanks for being such wonderful pals!

December 31, 2016 Road blocks for safety reasons

December 31 2016 4pm
One of the concrete roadblocks right across of our building

Police had these concrete blocks be put up yesterday in the late afternoon to make it difficult or even prevent anyone from racing through the street in a possible attack like Berlin and into the large crowds celebrating New Years Eve in my area. There is a huge party tent right up the street from me. (maybe 60 meters up the street from our building). The public suare where the tent is and the area here is one of the busiest and popular places on New Years Eve. There are other public event tents and parties throughout downtown.

Concrete blocks like these have been put in front of cafes, bakeries, public events and all kinds of other places over the city. And all up and down my street and the area. I also think the roads around here will be closed for traffic tonight for the same reason.

Police will be out in full force, in uniform and plain clothes, to react to, or prevent large scale sexual assaults like the ones that took place all over Europes cities last New Years Eve from happening again. Crazy times!

The situation has really changed in these past two years security wise. We already had a similar attack here in my city in 2015. Back then a guy raced through the city and downtown area, chasing people at random and running them over. In the end he raced into a crowded cafes outdoor sitting area, killing many, children and adults alike. I have never heard so many emergency vehicles at once in my life and for such a long period. Here the link to the story: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2015_Graz_attack

I just hope everything will be ok everywhere and the year will end peacefully for everyone and all animals.
