Happy New Year: 2008

I've not updated this site for the longest while .... I'll do my best to upload some photo's of Hannah's 5th birthday etc.

6 months since we moved back to Eindhoven

Today it is six months ago when we moved back to Eindhoven. Our live changed a lot: Hannah went to a new school, Luke got a new job and Fran started studying and working in daycare ! So we are quite a busy bunch right now.

Time flies, specially the last few weeks but we are moving in a positive direction at least. Funny, I'm typing this and looking out of the window I see a flock of geese in V shape formation flying by :-D

Five Hundred and Seven Mechanical Movements - H. Brown (1871)

"Five Hundred and Seven Mechanical Movements" - H. Brown (1871)
A wonderful book of all kinds of mechanisms ! Around 1870 the Franco-Prussian War raged and the German forces victoriously entered Versailles...

For more historical books about mechanisms see this Cornell page.

See here for the photos of our last holiday ! Nothing spectacular, but we had a good time, although it was only a mid-week. The park (Landal, Rabbit Hill) is very child friendly and we had a good time.
