Pilloried! by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

Dutch MP Helma Neppérus (VVD – People’s Party for Freedom and Democracy) argued for the reinstatement of tonic water and bitter lemon in the lower chamber’s restaurant. The fizzy drinks had fallen by the wayside because produce has to be organic. How much of a nanny state can a person endure?So I agree with Mrs Neppérus, although one has to wonder if there are not more important global problems which deserve the attention of MPs.Earlier the Party for the Animals had a problem with ‘ladle-out…See More

Portobello Hipster by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

I only recently encountered the beardstache. I had never come across the word before. If Jesus had worn skinny jeans with super narrow legs, he would have been a hipster. And Conchita Wurst, who bears a striking resemblance to the Redeemer, is a man with a beardstache in a dress.



It turned out to be a marvellous lunch, lasting for six hours, with tapas for starters, followed by shellfish, paella, lots of wine and a genuine wedding cake. With several bands and, yes, the members of…

A Celebration Every Day by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

I don’t know of any other country with so many festivities, commemorations, and societies for the protection of this, that and the other, than the United Kingdom. It’s a small miracle that the whole country hasn’t ground to a halt.



But the country is also great on a small scale. So, I’m considering joining the Pork Pie Appreciation Society. Or would the Biscuit Appreciation Society be a better fit? It’s that I don’t like gardening, otherwise I would make haste and attend the annual…

Diana is Back by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

Recently, I followed the coverage of King’s Day in Dordrecht on my laptop. It featured the visit to the city of King Willem-Alexander and Queen Maxima with their children and some minor royals. On the whole, the Dutch are quite outspoken, but the Dutch media are very cautious. It’s quite different in the United Kingdom.



Recently, Princess Charlotte Elizabeth Diana was born just around the corner. The fact that Diana is her third name was seen by the paper as a statement from William…

Thank-You for your friendship! It's always good to connect with other inspirational and gifted people like you. I have just completed my autobiography entitled "Born In Betrayal". The website is http://https://www.createspace.com/3694258. Alot of people ask me why I decided to reveal my story to the world. I believe that we all are connected in some way or another, and that our experiences of personal struggle and triumph could possibly have the potential to help another person along this journey of life. I am a survivor and I give all of my credit and glory to God. I believe that my book will change your life and the lives of all who read it. After the storm I find that even the darkest of days and nights still had a purpose and a meaning. God Bless!

Hi there,

Tim is out of surgery. The Dr hadn't seen a worse case of the cyst like material all through his ear area.  we come back in 6-9 months for reconstructive surgery.

Thanks for caring,
