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 opposing the…See More

Loved by All by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

Recently, I visited Karl Marx’s grave at Highgate Cemetery in North London. There was an entrance fee of four pounds per person. ‘Four pounds,’ my travel companion said to the lady behind the counter, ‘to visit a graveyard?’



Ah, there’s Marx: along a curve in the path, his enormous head loomed before us. ‘Couldn’t they have made it a bit smaller?’ You can say a lot about these socialist or communists, but, in spite of those small headstones, not that they’re retiring. Just a…

Cooking in Peacetime by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

Since I’ve emigrated to England I have a fully fitted kitchen at my disposal and there is a new woman in my life. The lady in question is Mrs PJ Sarels van Rijn, author of the completely revised, and also emigrated, edition of the I Can Cook cookbook from 1953.



Via the Assyrians, Egyptians, Israelites, Greeks, Romans and ancient Germans (‘barbarians’, according to the Romans and Mrs Sarel van Rijn), the Middle Ages and the Renaissance (and Louis XII’s eating habits), Mrs…

A Bit of a Genetic Mess by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

The English (with four grandparents nearby) in central and southern England are 40% French, 25% German, 11% Danish and 9% Belgian. Don’t hold me to the exact figures, because the various papers quote different percentages.

 

But if you, as an Englishman, have a soft spot for Vikings on the underground, you’re likely to have Danish DNA. Do you like strong beer? It’s probably due to your Belgian ancestors. Do you have quite a few extra-marital affairs? You’re French, of course!…

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,
