    Stony humpling.
    The Hümmling geological ridge is an end moraine landscape in the northern German lowlands in the district of Emsland, spiked with evidence of megalithic culture from the Neolithic and Bronze Age. Numerous prehistoric large stone graves testify to the early settlement of this area. Individual boulders and imposing grave sites tell as stone witnesses from a time more than 5500 years ago. It's fun to drive through this slightly undulating landscape, past large farms that lie in the shade of ancient oaks, tidy and well-kept. The numerous megalithic tombs are partly lined up close together like a string of pearls and so we had a lot to do today and were amazed on our tour. A long and eventful day is coming to an end, the many impressions gained still need to be processed.

    Dieter, the Hüvener mill is a combination of a wind and water mill. For years the water of the Mittelradde drove her grinder. However, since the river sometimes ran out of water, the miller also built a windmill on the roof in 1851 and was now able to use both energy sources.

    ;-) My great-grandfather worked in the mill.

    That's interesting, Andreas. The mill was very dilapidated, ready for demolition, so to speak, was then restored in the 1950s and is now an attraction in Hümmling.

    However, that's how it was. As you can see, the restoration was worth it. Not only was it ground, it was also baked in the mill. In particular black bread, which was kneaded on foot “back then” (<= bad word). As a result, the bakers of that time presumably had well-groomed feet 😬. My grandfather then opened a bakery in Stavern, which my cousin closed a few years ago for health reasons. 1 or 2 generations before the said great-grandfather my ancestors still baked in Lorup, whose mill still bears my family name.

    Surely you also know the famous and healthy Hüvener black bread, which we crumbled into the milk soup as children: milk and bread make cheeks red! Also very interesting, the Müller and baker family Wotte.

    And we had well-groomed feet after we stamped white cabbage into the sauerkraut barrel, namely with our feet 😂

    Apparently, foot care was a thing of the past. 🙈
