Thousend times thanks!

To all the followers of the blog, to anyone who has been supportive of Frank or us in the last months and especially after his untimely death we want to say thanks from the bottom of our hearts. In the week after his passing we received so much warmth, stories, care and love, hardly describable. To us it was a very precious and valuable week and it was so good to have Frank at home where so many of his friends could visit him. And all the help, stories and info shared in that week led to a beautiful goodbye ceremony on a beautiful sunny autumn day. For those of you who could not attend, or those of you who wish to reread the funeral speeches, we publice them here (in dutch and english) with some pictures in grateful memory of, and tributed to Frank.We will miss him dearly, thanks for being with him and with us, one way or another,

On behalf of my family and his closest friends, Esther

Dutctv, part 2

onwthing that irks me on TB is the number of well-known Dutchmrn and -women. the "famous facea who are famous for being famous, What to do with thrm? Thankfully,Brainiac (Discovery Channel) proviges ananswer with "STars in hteir caeavans". In that show, stars put their prizweposessions in a caeavan filled with gunpowder.they then have to anfwer a question. if they answer correcctly, a long fuse us kutl; if they get it wrongm a short ine, That is htirir tumto get.. their things,. Alternativeli the American rock band GWAR describes such an interesting show in "Slaughtwerama"(thank you, Walter). th organisers of thr RTL4 programme "Help. , my man has ahobby" rivhliy deserve this.Traitors totheirown gender. When do we get:"Help, my wife has a hobby". THat soungds far more interesting.

  1. Hah.. My hobby is cooking and baking. No complaints yet!

  2. For the innocent people who don't know either the heavy metal group GWAR or the song Slaughterama, here are the lyrics: I've seen them in concert twice, the second one being evidence the first one had been enough. Very loud, very messy, and very not really my thing.


  3. While I applaud gender equality, I don't think I would watch 'help, my wife has a hobby'. Groups of women getting together for a book club or cycling group are best left unfilmed: menopausal emotional can be explosive in large numbers.

    On the other hand, I would LOVE to see an episode about the cleaning ladies at my job. this lovely group of women in their mid-fifties have put together a guilt in World of Warcraft and are planning raids during their lunch breaks. They outdo much of Casus Belli in nerdiness.
    Now, I could watch an episode about that over and over.

  4. Hmmmm... telt een 'vrouwen aan een sherry kuur' ook voor hobby?
    Dat zou ik wel eens willen zien, moet fraaie en onverwachtte taferelen opleveren. :-)
