The cuckoo clock. The people of the Black Forest province wouldn't be pleased – more so because of their cultural icon being attributed as Swiss rather than German. For it was sometime in 1737, in the quaint village of Schoenwald, that clockmaker Franz Ketterer created a timepiece as synonymous with Germanic craftsmanship and engineering as the cars they'd later produce…. Differences abound over whether Ketterer was the original maker of the cuckoo clock, but there's no doubt these timepieces reached their handcrafted zenith in the Black Forest. The earliest pieces – Schilduhr or shield clocks – had simpler designs than today's meticulously-sculpted variants: painted semicircles housed the characteristic cuckoo atop a square clock face. The once-wooden guts of the clocks evolved into brass mechanisms. The most intricate clocks can take a year to make, with different craftsmen for cuckoos, figurines, roof shingles, leaves and gears. Which is why quartz mechanisms just won't do. Original cuckoo clocks, certified by the Black Forest Clock Association, cost anywhere between 100-7000 Euros depending on size, detailing and features like a 'night shut off'. The most reputed cuckoo clock makers – August Schwer, Anton Schneider, Hubert Herr, Rombach & Haas, Drubba,.
And with this fall from grace, so we have seen the number of young doctors going into general practice plummet. As the Mail has reported in its major investigation into the family doctors' crisis over the past few days, 10. 2 per cent of full-time GP positions are now vacant — a proportion that has quadrupled in the past three years. This is an NHS recruitment crisis unlike anything we have ever seen before, at a time when politicians are making more and more outlandish promises about what people can expect from the Health Service. Speaking as the Tory party conference opened on Sunday, David Cameron promised to introduce a new contract for GPs to ensure that they will be available from 8am to 8pm. When I heard this, I wanted to laugh. There aren't enough family doctors to run the service we currently have, so where on earth does he think the other ones are going to appear from. There simply aren't enough GPs to go around. Increasing the number of hours that surgeries open isn't going to change this miraculously. Like Corporal Jones from Dad's Army, Cameron's speech is little more than the political equivalent of running around shouting: 'Don't panic.
A popular stop on Rhine River cruises, the Black Forest offers dramatic gorges, misty waterfalls, winding rivers, half-timbered farmhouses and hills thick with fir trees. I was headed to the Black Forest on a large comfy bus as a shore excursion from a Viking Kara cruise. The Black Forest has a rich mythological tradition filled with werewolves, witches, fairies and dwarfs. Petra said the legend is that the Brothers Grimm were inspired by the Black Forest when they wrote Snow White, Cinderella, Rapunzel, Hansel and Gretel and other tales. The Black Forest also has inspired fine craftsmen to create cuckoo clocks. The handcrafted clocks with the tiny cuckoo and wooden gears were being built in the Black Forest as early as 1630. “They were a way to keep busy during the long winters and to earn some money because other people would buy them,” Petra said as we... As for black forest cake, I had a piece in a Black Forest bakery where I watched a baker create one. I also bought a postcard with the black forest cake recipe. What makes it special, Petra says, “besides all the good cream and cherries is the wonderful Black Forest cherry brandy Kirsch.
