Alle Jahre wieder.

Sorry, but this post is not available in English

Every time we say good bye …

I die a little. After my retirement from the business management of PAROL I now take leave also of this blog. For me it was a lot of delight and joy to pay homage to these wonderful people, the divas and heros in the olympus of PAROL. I wish Jeanette Niebelschütz and PAROL good luck!
