Nr. 30:
I discovered that the world should be divided not into good and bad people but into cowards and non-cowards. Ninety-five percent of cowards are capable of the vilest things, lethal things, at the mildest threat.

Tomorrow it's already a year since we are back in Eindhoven !

How time flies ! 12 moons ago we left Oosterhout and now and we were back in our little house.

Prince gave me a whole box of African beer ! Mongozo. Really nice to drink. Franny loves the coconut and banana flavours, I like the Quinua and Palm nut varieties. Some of the ingredients are Fair Trade imported (the beers are brewed in Belgium). Read some about the history here.

Fran has a job ! She will start the BBL course (combined working and learning) at the ROC (regional education centre) and work at Korein. That's great news. The course will start really soon (next week maybe already). So there are a lot of things to do: enrolment in the school, daycare for Hannah etc etc.

The first week (well, 3 days) were quite ok at MI-Partners. It will take a few days more before I can get involved in projects ... the company just started. But I got my new laptop up and running ...

Last Monday in Delft. Made a whole set of photo's with my mobile this morning from the train station to Mapper. Some taken standing still the rest on the go "from the loose wrist" as we Dutch say it. The results are good enough for me, funny to see the distortions in the images. Quite a few are just the bike path itself (the delay between pressing the 'shutter' button and the image capture is long ...) but that doesn't bother me. The sun was out this morning so I'm a happy camper.

Friday, getting warmer

This weekend will be nice weather for a change. Tomorrow is Tayo and Tola's birthday. Franny is already preparing a cheesecake. Not much else is planned for the weekend. We'll do something nice Sunday. Don't know what yet, but we'll see.
