And the Germans and south Dutch are celebrating the start of the Carnaval season. Switch on your TV on 11-11 on BBC, and there's mourning people. Switch to ze Germans and it's party!

Went to grandma for Mother's Day, which was fun. Saw some of my cousins again, which was great.

The first noteworthy thing to happen to me today is that I actually found time to come visit the Goose. I don't know if I mentioned this before but my wife is the full time worker of the family and I normally work part time. But, since we moved to Adelaide I've been at home all the time with the plan to start work again after the renovations are finally finished. Well, all bar a few finishing touches, the work looked like it would be almost finished by the end of April. So, back in early April in the middle of a band practice one evening I get a phone call from a school principal wanting me to come and work for him. Thus, since the 27th April, the start of our second term (out of four per annum), I've been back in the deep end taking Info Tech classes with young teenagers. Between family, work and music I've hardly had a moment to visit here and I've only been to zappa.com fleetingly a couple of times.

So, long time no see, how is everyone?

Hey Poly, nice to see you again! You sure keep yourself occupied!

My friend and I finally agreed to go to Amsterdam tomorrow. We've been postponing our get-together for two months now, so I'm looking forward very much to this!

DED wasn't this lucky. He was at a gas station yesterday when a car tried to pass him, and there was way too little space. There's a large scratch along the front door. I'll upload the picture soon.

Not much today! So i have a few minutes to come and say Hiya! to you all. I know it's been a while but i still come around and check out what's happening. I trust all of you are well and that the spring weather (for us northeners) is putting smiles on your faces. I've been truly overbooked for months now. I spent a few weeks in hospital at the new year and another month recovery before going to South Africa with my kids. We had a great trip to say the least ! We fell in love with that country. Too bad it's probably going to get nasty some day... Otherwise, this economic situation is getting on everyones nerves and our bosses are taking advantage of the paranoia by heeping on more objectives and more work....Luckily the month of may in France looks like a piece of swiss cheese...four long weekends and a day off! Looks like i'm good to go to Ardèche and cut my grass....because i'm a very nice boy!!!

Talk to you soon i hope...

Wow! You've come a long way!

Yesterday I went to the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam (that's where the Nightwatch is) with my long-time friend. It was great, although I was pretty pissed at finding 3 of my favourite artworks not on display. But I did manage to get a great look at the Nightwatch, learnt a lot about that painting that I didn't know yet, have a thorough look at Avercamp's winter landscape, that's one of those paintings you can look at forever and find new things all the time. And seeing Hugo Grotius's chest is always imposing.

And here's the photo of my father's car:

Did the driver of the car stop after he scratched Ded's car?

Yeah he did, and the police came and looked at the surveillance camera footage, and it was clearly that guy's fault.

OK we're back! For a while I couldn't get on many websites, and as ploeg.ws was out, I assumed something was wrong with the server.

And today I had my first turn at the lawnmower.

Well today's Assumption Day,we went to some flea markets which is always nice. And I'm enjoying the birds in the backyard, I bet they wonder what happened to all the high grass there.

My wife asked me to sharpen some scissors for her, since she's a klutz and would hurt herself if she tried to do it.

So naturally, I sliced my finger open.

The good news is, I seem to be really good at sharpening scissors...

I'm a klutz with those things myself. Yesterday I broke off a toenail in my shoe, just by walking around. And it HURTS because some of the sensitive skin that's normally protected by nails, is now bare. And the last time I sharpened scissors I hurt myself on the table edge; but the scissors were still blunt.

ZPZ TONIGHT!!!:bouncing:

Had another first today: waxed the car. Except for the bit with the scratch. It's been a long time since I last saw our Opel THIS shiny.
