Remote control

I bought a new television and stereo last weekend. The old once were respectively 20 an 25 years old. So I really renewed. Installing was easy. But I was not used to all these remote control functions. First I had no remote controls and now at once I do have two very sophisticated remote controls. Of course I do not have to leave the sofa for switching to another channel. But now it is for getting my reading glasses to read the small letters on the remote controls. Hopefully next time, 20 years from now, the controls will be with ...

great pictures

My girlfriend sent me an email with some picture of men on ladders in dangerous conditions with the text why men die before women. These are great pictures in which men balance on ladders on wrong surfaces in dangerous situations. How can they be so stupid to work at that way, they must have a lot of luck? I had to laugh at those pictures and I wrote an email back that I liked the pictures. Immediately I received an email back that she was not surprised at all that I could laugh with these great pictures. Well, I am ...

Zij maakt beter schoon.

Ineens valt het me op dat de kitvoegen in de badkamer wel enorm schoon zijn. Dat zal vast mijn wekelijkse hulp gedaan hebben. Ik heb haar sinds kort en voor die tijd maakte ik zelf schoon. Ik dacht altijd dat het me gewoon niet lukte om die voegen schoon te houden maar blijkbaar deed ik het niet goed want het lukt mijn hulp duidelijk wel. En onze badkamer ziet er nu in één keer weer helemaal als nieuw uit en dat alleen maar door beter schoonmaken. Ik ben dan ook erg blij met haar want zij maakt ook veel ander ...

a good remedy.

Today when I was talking with my mother in law I found out that she also has osteoarthritis. I did not know although I saw that she was walking a little bit stiff. But I did not pay attention on the way she walked, I thought that this was just of a temporary nature. Now she told me that it is not of a temporary nature and she have to deal with it. She also told me that she looked on the internet if she could find a remedy and also she went to a doctor who informed her about ...

lessons

Tomorrow the boys have to go to the Dutch school in the afternoon. That will be a little bit excited because there are some new children in their classes and the groups are bigger than they used to be. It is quite a luxury that a group consist of only 5 or 6 students with one teacher and sometimes a volunteer to help the teacher. They try as much as possible not to combine the different levels of the children but when there are not enough children for our location than it can happen that some levels are in the ...

Busy weekend

This weekend we have planned a lot nice things. On Saturday one of our neighbor children has his birthday and we are all invited. Last year they made so much food on the barbeque and together with other neighbor children our kids were in the swimming pool. It was really a big party and it was nice to be together with your neighbors. On Sunday friends will come over to sail on our sailing boat. I hope it will be dry on Sunday; it doesn’t have to be warm. You can always take an extra jacket but rain is not ...
