47. DVD of the BBC-series: Great Rift: Africa's...

content discovered on Wednesday, August 02, 2017

I'm very impressed by the BBC series: Great Rift: Africa's Wild HeartI love every moment of it.The way nature is filmed is amazing. The effort the crew took to give us an insight in animal behaviour was huge. But it certainly paid off.It's one of the few series that keeps me focused from the first second to the last. And makes me dream long after the episodes have finished.The series is narrated by Hugh Quarshie, one of my favorite players of Holby City.His voice calms me, and draws me in the film even m... read more »

content discovered on Monday, July 31, 2017

Yesterday I was talking with one of my daughters about the new friends online that are such a huge support, just as my offline friends.Some offered to go with me to hospital appointments, which is very kind. Right now I don't need a person to go with me to talk to the doc, because going by myself makes me more focused and more critical.But I don't know what I need in the near future.I said: 'Sometimes internet is not as good as writing letters, otherwise I could put their letters of support in my bag'.Do... read more »

content discovered on Friday, July 21, 2017

The main event in our city, Nijmegen, is a special event called: The 4-Days Marches.The festivities around it start the Saturday before.It's a huge festival with open air concerts, music everywhere in the center in town, and a lot more.And Tuesday early in the morning, the marches start. All 4 days people walk the same age-related distance of 30, 40 or 50 km, the routes are different each day.On Friday the last part is walked on a long straight road, which is only called that day: Via Gladiola.Because th... read more »

42. Study ethics

content discovered on Sunday, July 16, 2017

I would love to have the opportunity to study ethics.It has been of the main subject in my life.When I was young, my uncles loved to discuss ethical matters like war, resistance. We sat for hours discussing things, while my gram gave us coffee, tea, lemonade and her home baked cookies.Often she would sit with me later in the week, reviewing the discussion, giving advice.At university I often found myself discussion matters with my fellow students and professors.It was in a time that feminists were lookin... read more »

39. A caregiver's house

content discovered on Tuesday, July 04, 2017

The past years the care for people has moved from professionals to family, or better said; from educated and paid, to uneducated and non-paid.The influence on me and my family is tremendous.The oldest went from living in a house with professional care (office within the house), to living in his own apartment without any care at all.The second son was living in his own apartment, rented from a care-organisation, with 24 hours service from professional caretakers, who had their office in the apartment buil... read more »

38. Singing jazz

content discovered on Sunday, July 02, 2017

It was such a privilege to live in the same city as one of the most famous singers of the world, a civil rights activist, a woman with so many thoughts and feelings that she could understand the young woman I was.When I told my gram I'd discovered Nina Simone lived in our city, she smiled and told me to go and talk to her. 'Maybe she's lonely as the only black woman here.', she said. 'You're one of the few here who speaks her language fluently, and people always appreciate to be able to speak in their ow... read more »

34. Watch seals near Texel

content discovered on Friday, June 23, 2017

Spotting seals on or near Texel can be as easy as you wish.On Texel they care for seals in a seal hospital.For children it's a very interesting place, as they can see how the seals are cared for, and they can even watch feeding them.And when you're lucky you'll see them when you're on the ferry to Texel. I haven't been that lucky.You can also go to those beaches where they visit regularly or from where you can see them on a sandbank with your binoculars. Mind the time: two hours before low tide until an ... read more »

33. I want to learn sheepfarming

content discovered on Thursday, June 22, 2017

In the past I didn't like sheep. I considered them to be a stinking lot, but the little ones were cute.Gradually my opinion changed, and I started to get interested in what's needed to farm them.I don't expect to be able to keep sheep unless I can realize my dream to live somewhere in the UK and some money shower hits me.But as life never stops to suprise me, I decided to put this on my bucketlist too.I have far too many items on it I'll never able to afford anyway.So let's value the dream, and enjoy dre... read more »

32. The Settle-Carlisle Railway

content discovered on Wednesday, June 21, 2017

Even though I was (and am) a girl, Ron wanted to show one of the Welsh most remarkable features. He told me we would go to see a viaduct, and first wanted to hear from me if I knew the meaning of a viaduct. I was 11 and knew the meaning. He smiled. I remember his smile and the way he looked to my dad, as if they had prepared a huge surprise.Well, he didn't prepare it himself. Lots of hard working men did that before it opened in august 1875.I was surprised indeed: 24 arches to cover the distance of a bea... read more »

30. Shepherding

content discovered on Sunday, June 18, 2017

Working with a sheepdog seems to be such a privilege.Even being present at a contest in the UK would make me feel very delighted.Dog and shepherd are such a close team. It's fascinating to see the dog react to each and every whistle and thus bringing the sheep where the shepherd wants them to be.To be a good team, it's best when one teaches the dog from the moment he's born, preferably with a well trained older dog.I don't think I'll have enough time and money to do so.But I've learned in life never to s... read more »
