Such a mood as on Saturday we experienced around the monastery of Benediktbeuern rare: Fans scream, clap, cheer, shout "Hey, Hey, hey!" "Come on!" and "Super – pull through!" Sounds almost like a football, but it was actually the entertaining final of the 5. Senso Lied To Congress.

The mow three acres per season – as the Scythe flies.“ The acquired Knowledge, he try to pass it on. And he applies it professionally: Thim is part of a newly-built scythe-mowing crew at the Tegernsee yard.
