Baby King George by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

The British cherish being islanders. Inhabitants of islands are a bit opinionated. Islanders are a bit eccentric. This is even more true of people who live on an island close to a big island.On Orkney, Shetland and the Outer Hebrides, voices are being raised for their own referendum on independence from Scotland. And therefore Orkney, Shetland and the Outer Hebrides are threatening to rob Scotland of 67% of its oil and gas reserves.But what will happen to the Scots? Will all the Scottish people…See More

The Virgin Train from Birmingham by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

It’s only now that I realise that everyone in the station is drunk. There isn’t a normal person on the platform. Well, except three or four, who stand noticeably close to us, so that we form an island. Every now and then, apprehensive-looking policemen put in an appearance.The train is packed, mainly with people no longer qualifying as young adults – in short, people in their thirties, who’ve been out in Birmingham. It’s just after 9pm.Four women are occupying the seats in front of us. One is…See More

Nuclear Hospitality by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

Recently, I had to go to the pharmacy. There is always a bowl of liquorice on the counter. Customers are allowed to take a piece of liquorice. Most people do; after all, it’s free. I never take one; I’m in a pharmacy, people who go there are ill.



Another phenomenon is the behaviour of the queue at the checkout in a Dutch supermarket.

The cycling experience is best described as a combination of a Western and the last three kilometres of a stage in the Tour de France.

In…

Vladimir the Viking by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

The British Museum is showing an exhibition about the Vikings with the title: The Vikings Are Here! There have been times in the past when this wouldn’t have been such a welcoming message.



I always thought that the Vikings plundered, raped and torched the land on a large scale. Yes, that too, of course, but they also created beautiful jewellery. And their ships, too, are quite magnificent! They got rather enthusiastic on BBC Breakfast. You almost wanted to become a…

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,

Lisa Johnson
