The Dutch football team will play again this afternoon at 4 P.M. (Netherlands time) against Slovakia. They already won the three matches against Cameroon 1:2, Japan 0:1, Denmark 0:2.
Stahl Eye Center conducted detailed studies on Restasis for Lasik patients. Today they announced a new scientific study on the effect of RESTASIS Ophthalmic Emulsion on patients undergoing laser vision correction. Participants in the study will be treated with the medication twice a day for a month, including right after surgery, to permanently improve visual acuity. Restasis is more commonly indicated to treat Dry Eye Syndrome by increasing the eyes’ natural ability to produce tears.
Dry eye and dry eye related to Lasik can cause discomfort, vision fluctuations, slow healing and more. Fortunately, there are many techniques to resolve dry eye problems. There are dry eye treatment solutions. Consult the Stahl Eye Center doctor at http://www.StahlEyeCenter.com/new_york_eye_doctors.html for your dry eye problem before deciding to have an eye surgery like all-Laser Lasik, PRK, LASEK, or Epi-Lasik.

Do you know something about this animal Vacheval?
Vacheval is an animal cross between a cow and a horse. I never saw and heard this kind of animal until I saw a video. This video shows on what vacheval can do.
The modern transportations like planes, speed trains, buses and more have increased the level of CO2 in the atmosphere. Today, CO2 concentrations worldwide average about 380 ppm. Compared to former geologic periods, concentrations of CO2 in our atmosphere are still very small and may not have a statistically measurable effect on global temperatures. To reduce CO2, a farm just outside Leuven in Belgium reared a new animal, the Vacheval. A strange animal which is reared as new form of CO2 reducing transportation.
Alain du Monde, an eco extraordinaire who worked for Belgique Television at that time, recalls the Vacheval; “The Vacheval were magnificent, they were not only eco but they were chic too, those behind the Vacheval were clearly visionary in recognizing the future environmental issues facing man-kind” he says.
No one knows whether they actually exist today. There are rumors they all now live on a special retreat in the Alps, while some say they fled Europe in search of work. With little records of their existence, who knows what actually happened to the Vacheval?
The school of my children does not have lockers. The children in every level have a small room where they can put their things. The school provides each pupil with a big plastic bag or a box where he can put his things like bag, umbrella, coat or shoes. He hangs the bag on a wall hanger. I think the school should find a way to put some lockers in the aisle or a locker room so that the stupid children cannot just pick the things from their classmates.
School lockers are safe. They also make the school tidy compare to wall hangers. The children can put their bulky winter jacket, books, bags and more. The perfect lockers for my kids' school will be large enough and a hook inside on which to hang a jacket. The school might be able to purchase smaller storage lockers and still accommodate their students' needs. There are so many locker sizes and designs which will fit the area where you put them.
I find it untidy seeing those bags hanging on the wall. I would prefer that each student/pupil should have a locker to keep their valuable things.
A short break for 10 minutes.
Get up and walk the next 2.5 kms.
My sister in Canada has just bought new pair of eyeglasses but she does not like it. She feels uncomfortable wearing eyeglasses. She is planning to have Lasik but she is confused and have many questions in mind. While surfing on the net I found this informative website which gives advice to individuals in deciding whether to take Lasik or not. USAEyes is a website which guides those who wanted to correct their lenses through Lasik. It answers all the confusions about this famous surgical operation of the cornea. The USAEyes complies with the Health On The Net code standard for trustworthy health information. A US Congressional subcommittee cited USAEyes as a reliable source of Lasik information.
I will ask her to visit this website. It is very informative. I am absolutely sure that this information will enlighten her mind and answer all her confusions.

These are our pictures on the second day of AVONDVIERDAAGSE.
What is PD?
PD stands for Pupillary Distance. This is the distance between the center of your pupils in each eye and that is measured in millimeters. Corrected lens eyeglasses cannot be made without PD. It is used to position the optical center of the lens when it is made so that you will be able to see easily through the eyeglasses. No PD for you from Opticians, then you can request a friend to measure your PD. You can learn more on how to get your PD at Zennioptical.com. Zenni: the #1 online eyeglasses store, where you can find lots of prescription eyeglasses. They also give advice on what to do to get the right eyeglasses you need.
The correct PD is particularly important for a multi-focal lens, as there are multiple viewing fields which are adjusted on the basis of the PD supplied.

Avondvierdaagse is one of the Dutch traditions. This evening at 6 p.m. begins the avondvierdaagse. The school of my kids organizes this avondvierdaagse. It is a sport activity. Four successive evenings of hiking, singing, making fun with your friends from the class, sport clubs and organizations. There are two groups. One group will hike for five kms. and the other is ten kms. Every year and school organize AVONDVIERDAAGSE. Kids and parents are invited to join this activity. Annabel and I will walk for the 5 kms. Kevin is lazy. He does not like hiking. He prefers to go with his bike. He will stay at home with his papa. I hope that I will not have muscle pains tomorrow.
Last year's avondvierdaagse.

In de verte spreekt een stem
Die ik herken van onze ruzies
Over kleine misverstanden
Over grote desillusies
En ik hoor de kille klanken
Van jouw ingehouden woede
Maar wat kan ik meer dan janken
Als ik dit niet kon vermoeden
In een waas hoor ik je zeggen
Dat je alles op wilt geven
Dat je alles met je meeneemt
Wat me lief is in dit leven
En ik luister hoe jouw woorden
Langzaam opgaan in de zinnen
Die me treffen als een bliksem
Met vernietigende kracht
Deze kilte maakt me gek
En dit gevoel is angstaanjagend
Maar je woorden malen verder
En m'n ogen kijken vragend
Waarom zei je mij niet eerder
Dat je zo van me vervreemd was
Waarom sprak je over liefde
Als je nooit van mij gehouden hebt
Ik verlies het van de wanhoop
En ik voel m'n tranen branden
En ik zou niets liever willen
Dan m'n hoofd weer in jouw handen
Maar wat tot een uur geleden
Nog zo veilig heeft geleken
Is 'n hele grote leugen
En 'n kaartenhuis gebleken
Het is net of iemand anders
In jouw lichaam is gekropen
En ik heb niet eens gemerkt
Dat ie naar binnen is geslopen
Om jouw liefde uit te wissen
En m'n wereld te vernielen
Wil er niemand me vertellen
Dat ik alles heb gedroomd...

My other blog has already a domain name. I can tell the differences between a free hosted site and a hosted site. If you want to make money through your website you must have your website hosted by a website hosting. Advertisers want to advertise on hosted sites.
Website hosting companies nowadays are very competitive. To make it attractive to customers, companies give extra features of their products and services. There are hundreds of website hosting providers to choose from. You must first read reviews, surf on the net and gather the right information about the web site hosting companies which offer the best. Compare the prices per year and the services each company offers.
The advantages of having your website hosted are:
* It is always accessible, day and night
* Safe, your website is housed in a highly secure data center.
* Fast connection, the data center is directly linked to various Internet exchanges.
Your domain represents your business identity. It gives a professional image of your business. It is very easy for people or clients to remember website names. They do not need to write it down.
If you want to be updated about the latest trends, features and changes of the website hosting you may read the article from webhostingfan.com.
I am planning to have this blog hosted but I am still looking for the best provider.

First own goal
The first goal finally came immediately after the start of the second half. In the 46th minute it was 1-0 for Holland by an own goal from the Dane Simon Poulsen who attempted a rescue of Van Persie heads away. It was the first own goal of this World Cup.
Dirk Kuyt makes it from 2-0
The final was 2-0 six minutes before the final whistle of Dirk Kuyt. Elija scoot the ball initially on target but bounced off the post. And then Kuyt tapped the ball into the net.
The first points were in. Congratulations guys, you played a great game today!
Two weeks ago we received a small note from our neighbors if we could join them in decorating our street. Last week one of our neighbors came and asked if he could tie the rope in our terrace in the third floor. My husband had helped them. When the garbage truck came to pick up the garbage the following day, the truck broke the rope because it was hanged too low. There are only few flags left. Some of our neighbors did not like to have such decorations. The other street has better and more flags than we have.
The Dutch Football Team will play this afternoon at 1:30 P.M. (Netherlands time) against Denmark. Big cities like Amsterdam, etc. put a wide screen t.v. so that the fans can watch the game.
Wish the Dutch Team a BIG GOOD LUCK!!!

Philippine Independence Day, June 12, 2010
The biggest Filipino event of the year.
We went to the Independence Day celebration in Spaarnwoude Park.
Many had brought tents and barbeque stands. It was eating the whole day and enjoying the show.
The ambassador gave a short speech. I did not see it because I was busy roaming around looking for something to buy. But I went home with nothing. The highlight of the program was Randy Santiago. It was my first time to see Randy in person. I thought he was a tall guy but to my surprise he is just the same as many Filipinos. I took lots of pictures because I had the chance to come closer to the stage. Here are the pictures:
Randy gave a nice show.

There was a major search done by the police in our place. They were looking for a guy wearing a brown leather jacket in a scooter who pushed a girl off her bike. The girl managed to escape and went home safely. The suspect was the same guy who molested seven women last week in the nearby neighborhood. He also abused a ten year old girl. On the search the police officers even used a helicopter. The guy on the scooter is nowhere to find. The agents keep a close eye on the guy and our place.
Me and my kids used to walk on a quiet path under the trees going to school. The school is ten minutes walk from our home. Prior to this event, I started training my kids to go home alone from school. My daughter is nine and my son is six years old. When the news broke about this guy, I immediate told my kids not to go home alone. They should wait for me. I was scared about this news. The other night I thought of a self-defense mechanism. If I encountered this kind of situation how could I defend myself. I was thinking about pepper spray or stun guns but where I could buy them. While surfing on the net, I found many shops like safetygirl.com selling emergency kits. Pepper spray and stun guns are the most popular products. Can you suggest other products or tips to interact this kind of situation? Have you ever think about this situation will happen to you? What should you advise to your children when someone attacks them?

means To make an elephant out of a mosquito.
Some people make small situations excessively large which is not needed. They can speak exaggeratedly or boastfully about things. These people react extremely to situations which can be handled normally. So, do not make an elephant out of a mosquito.

At last I made my own poffertjes. I have just made small pancakes. In Dutch we call it POFFERTJES. Butter and powdered sugar on top makes it yummy. My kids really love it. The ingredients are flour, crystal sugar, butter, powdered sugar, vegetable oil, eggs, fresh milk/water and of course the poffertjes maker/pan.
