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 one-off fee, and…See More

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!…

Email a Fairy by Arnold Jansen op de Haar

Recently, a dog was poisoned during a dog show. And then there’s the wood with the fairy doors. The wood is called Wayford Woods and it is located in Somerset, in the west of England. Last week, the paper reported an unbridled expansion of fairy doors.

 

But Wayford Woods’ trustee, Mr Acreman, is getting worried. I imagine him, one morning, saying to his wife: ‘It musn’t get any dafter with these fairies. I’m going to put an end to it now.’ Afterwards, he declared he wasn’t…

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,
