Just before Christmas I was shopping at a toy fair her in Noord-Holland I glanced to my left and caught sight of a queue at the doll counter; they were waiting for the shelves to be restocked with Mattel dolls. As I looked I realised that in the queue was a good friend of mine. Knowing Hans well ...

Boyracers

Now I don't consider a my self to be a vengful type of person, but I did chuckle a little when I read in the local dutch paper of a young boyracer who was stopped in Amsterdam driving at 108kph(68mph) which was 50 kph over the speed limit. His excuse?, he only wanted to dry his car after washing it ...

Pub Photography.... Beware !

After the fortnightly meeting of our local camera club I walked home with my camera bag slung over my shoulder. Passing the pub I thought,'mmm, just one won't hurt', and so in I popped for a lovely dutch beer. Sitting just next to the bar in a corner was a really beautiful dutch girl. Long blonde h...

If for some silly reason you had read my last blog you would know that I was recently made redundant. Well, as coincidence would have it a coworker of mine, Rob, also met that very same fate as I discovered when we met at the local dutch unemployment office. Rob was interviewed first and when as...

Redundancy Survey

I was made redundant two months ago. Bad news for most people I suppose, but I ain't complaining. Why?, well I have painted the house front to back, took an extra long summer holiday, and have finally been released from a mundane job that I didn't particularly like, and my bank balance has improved ...

Teepee or Wigwam ?

I honestly thought I was going mental, sometimes feeling like a wigwam, sometimes feeling like a teepee. Wigwam. Teepee! Wigwam! TeePee!!,Wigwam!! “It's driving me crazy!”, I explained to the doctor. “Re...

A visit to the Doctor

Don't you just hate when you get a couple of lines from a song implanted in your grey matter after hearing it on the radio. You spend the rest of the day singing it. It happened to me a few weeks ago and it got so bad I had to go to the doctor. I told him I couldn't stop singing 'The Green, Green Gr...

15 Minutes of Fame

We've all been there, on hearing of the antics of some celebrity, or playing the air guitar to acompany some well known music track on the the radio, just what would it be like to to have that 15 minutes of fame as predicted by Andy Warhol ? Being now at the age where stiring my tea too fast makes ...

Two years ago while on an overnight crossing by ferry from IJmuiden to Newcastle my wallet was stolen by one of the waiters onboard. You know the story , everything gone, money, cards, driving license etc, a right pain to say the least. I couldn't prove it at the time but i knew it was the waiter, i...

The Big Picture

Edward Young once said “Procrastination is the thief of time". Well he may be right, but in my opinion an even greater thief of time is a visit to The Boston Globes "The Big Picture" web pages. The time just flew by strolling through its wonderful photo archives, my coffee went cold, ...

Lowered standards on EPZ

I wish to register a complaint. It has come to my attention while reading through various blogs recently that the standard of written english is not up to the high standard that this site warrants. "there" instead "their", "to" instead of "too" to mention but ...

So there i was, cruising the world wide interweb and I happened upon yet another great site. Now I could try to explain what it is all about but they do a far better job themselves; The Nocturnes is an organization dedicated to night photography. Founded by Tim Baskerville in 1991 in San Fran...
