Sunny start

It's a sunny start of the day, even had to change seats to avoid the glare. Just found: http://www.projectwonderful.com a different kind of web advertising initiative. Found the link on drupal.org where a discussion is going on about how to get more funding for that project. I just signed up and I'll see what happens. This site is not getting enough visitors for anybody to bid on advertisements. But you never know. The Google adsense is bringing so little (a few dollars a month) that I don't think I can quit my day job soon ;-)

I wonder how Angelo is doing. On the 21st of this month Kim gave birth to Michael ! So now Isabel has a brand new brother. Hopefully everything goes well. I'll call him today.

Got the weblinks: http://www.koorneef.net/links/weblink working again on this site. Jippie !

I've started reading a book Fran ordered recently: "You ! on a diet" A very American book, in writing style and units (an inch ... funny that this unit system still in use by a few countries in the world is called the Imperial system ... Exactly the word the US was fighting against in the beginning. And look what they are doing now ...). Anyway, back to the book: very un-american like it uses the scientific approach in a very american writing style. Many funny comparisons, like: "we don't want you to end up panting like an obscene caller." (I might have the quote a bit wrong, don't have the book with me right now). So, quite politally incorrect, the book was even featured on the Oprah Winfrey show (wow, couldn't believe I spelt that name correctly). Of course Franny bought the book because it was on the show, but that doesn't mean it's crap. Franny even bought "The heart is a lonely hunter" by Carson McCullers which is an excellent book (was Oprah's book of the month). I'll keep http://www.koorneef.net/node/553/ updated !
