Accident & Emergency by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

It had been some time since my last camping holiday, but most of my camping holidays have been in the Ardennes.I had a shower (one for men, one for women, and one unisex shower) at the most unlikely times, to avoid running into other holidaymakers. In the morning, when shaving and brushing my teeth, I shuddered when some one wished me ‘good morning’. I find it impossible to brush my teeth while someone further along is having a shit. Not to mention the reverse.‘Let’s invite that lovely Scot and…See More

The Plumber and the Little Prince by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

Here at home, the boiler is being replaced, and all of a sudden I find myself in an uncomfortable situation. This awkward state of affairs begins as soon as the workmen arrive. I’m never quite sure if I ought to offer workmen something to drink.Suddenly, I sympathize with the Queen Mum, who, during the last 30 years of her life, refused to have workmen around in Clarence House. I also understand the people who, during extensive building works, board a ship to a faraway island to ‘escape from…See More

A Trojan Horse by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

Last week, a lot of people in the European Parliament were pointing out that civilisation had started in Greece. Yes, and the Romans invented hot water and the Germans the motorways. ‘Ajax is a leading Dutch football club but also a cleaning product,’ is what I always say.Maybe it’s time to seek guidance from the Oracle of Delphi. The following slogans adorned the walls of the temple: ‘Know yourself’ and ‘Everything in moderation’. I pronounce ‘Tsipras’ with less spittle than Guy Verhofstadt,…See More

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…

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,
