Wanna Hear A Dutch Song?

HET MASKER
van Nick and Simon

Van wit verander jij opeens naar zwart
en je buien gaan van droog naar boos
naar soms opeens een lange regenboog
je breekt en heelt en breekt opnieuw mijn hart
op je zoektocht naar wat groener gras
besef jij dat ik net iets groener was

groen van jaloezie jij niet
dat jij alleen mij daarom niet verliest
mij daarom niet verliest

maar als ik in je ogen kijk
dan zie ik elke keer een ander
wanneer doe jij eens wat water bij de wijn?
want als ik in je ogen kijk
dan ben je elke keer veranderd
ik wil ook weer eens een keer gelukkig zijn

ik haal mijn schouders op voor wat jij zegt
er veranderd niets aan wat ik voel
maar ik wil weten wat je nou bedoelt
je lacht en huilt en lacht als ik jou zie
vandaag ben ik je grootste vriend
maar morgen heb ik jou weer niet verdiend

Niet dat jij me nooit ziet staan
maar leg me uit, waar kom je toch vandaan?
waar kom je toch vandaan?

Want als ik in je ogen kijk
dan zie ik elke keer een ander
wanneer doe jij eens wat water bij de wijn?
want als ik in je ogen kijk
dan ben je elke keer veranderd
ik wil ook weer eens een keer gelukkig zijn

ik wil de echte jij een keer zien staan
dus zet je masker af en kijk me aan
want je kunt niet meer verliezen
je kunt niet meer verliezen dan mij

als ik in je ogen kijk
dan zie ik elke keer een ander
wanneer doe jij eens wat water bij de wijn
want als ik in je ogen kijk
dan ben je elke keer veranderd
ik wil ook weer eens een keer gelukkig zijn
want als ik in je ogen kijk
dan ben je elke keer veranderd
ik wil ook weer eens een keer gelukkig zijn

Start A New Life

Everybody has a problem. It could be a financial problem which is very common, relationship, drug or alcohol problems. One has to face his problem. You should talk to someone whom you could trust like your husband, best friend or family members about the things bothering you.
Many people are addicted to many things such as gambling, alcohol, drugs and more. The most common and serious addictions are the drugs and alcohol. Many people drink or take drugs just for one reason to evade reality. These people are weak. They cannot face and handle their problems in life that is why they do the easiest way to forget everything by taking drugs or drinking alcohol, not knowing that problem cannot be solved in this way.
If you are a drug or alcohol addict, you need a professional help. Addicts should admit first that they have a problem with drugs or alcohol abuse so that they can have drug or alcohol treatment. Nobody can help them if they do not admit. Acceptance of the problem is very important so that they can be helped and treated.
When you look for an alcohol treatment center where addicts can be treated please see to it that you have the services like individualized treatment plans; professional, experienced and caring staff; personal and group counselling; nutritionally balanced meals, etc. At the drug or alcohol rehab they have the right treatment plans and professional counsellors to help the patients. It would be worthwhile to ask for professional help.
It is not too late to begin a new life.

There was a proposition, it says: having a drug addict daughter or a pregnant daughter. A drug addict daughter or victims can be treated in contrary a problem about a daughter having a baby can never be solved. They said baby is a burden if your daughter is still teenager.
So, what would you choose and say?

Funny Monday...A Miserable Cold

A man went to see his doctor because he was suffering from a miserable cold. His doctor prescribed some pills, but they didn't help.

On his next visit the doctor gave him a shot, but that didn't do any good.

On his third visit the doctor told the man, "Go home and take a hot bath. As soon as you finish bathing throw open all the windows and stand in the draft."

"But doc," protested the patient, "if I do that, I'll get pneumonia."

"I know," said the doctor, "I can cure pneumonia."

The Tropical Insects

When it is summertime we have problems with ants, mosquitoes, bees and other kinds of tropical insects. It is because of the hot weather. We cannot even sit outside during the night because of the mosquitoes. When my husband sees one mosquito inside the house, he will not sit down until he kills it. He knows that mosquitoes like him. I only see mosquitoes in the summer. We also have ants in the house. Few weeks ago I saw ants inside the house. They probably got in via the garden door. My husband hates ants. They are dirty and they bite. I am glad that they are not fire ants. The fire ants are dangerous. One effective way of killing fire ants is the use of fire ant baits. The bait is carried by workers back to the colony and fed to other ants, including the queen. There are a number of recommended products on the market to kill the fire ants.
Fire ants can be distinguished from other ants by their copper brown head and body with a darker abdomen. Fire ants often attack small animals and can kill them. If you are bitten by fire ants you need a special care to assure you are not infected. You must be treated.
We have no more ants inside the house because my husband put some ant baits in the kitchen and living room.

Ideal Beds For Guests

Before my sister came here for a 2-week vacation I planned to buy an air bed. We do not have an extra mattress for visitors. Grandma has an extra mattress, so we lend it for two weeks. My sister slept on that mattress. I am really planning to buy an air bed for visitors. There are so many air beds from various manufacturers. They come in different styles, sizes and filling materials. You must consider the styling for a long-lasting enjoyment and the ultimate in sleeping comfort. There are many sizes and styles to suit your needs and fit your space. Since we have small bedrooms so we can just have the single inflatable beds. Sad to say I cannot invite many visitors to overnight in our house. One thing that I like with air beds they are easy to store. You can bring them when you go on camping or when you overnight at your friend's house. You can even let your friends borrow them if they have guests. Ideal for guests, travel and for camp. An air mattress is a useful thing everyone should have in their home. Be always ready when unexpected guests come to sleep. Have an air bed in your house.

FuNnY MOndaY...For Money or Love?

Once there was a millionaire, who collected live alligators. He kept them in the pool in back of his mansion. The millionaire also had a beautiful daughter who was single. One day he decides to throw a huge party, and during the party he announces, “My dear guests . . . I have a proposition to every man here. I will give one million dollars or my daughter to the man who can swim across this pool full of alligators and emerge alive!”

As soon as he finished his last word, there was the sound of a large splash!! There was one guy in the pool swimming with all he could and screaming out of fear. The crowd cheered him on as he kept stroking as though he was running for his life. Finally, he made it to the other side with only a torn shirt and some minor injuries. The millionaire was impressed.

He said, “My boy that was incredible! Fantastic! I didn’t think it could be done! Well I must keep my end of the bargain. Do you want my daughter or the one million dollars?”

The guy says, “Listen, I don’t want your money, nor do I want your daughter! I want the person who pushed me in that water!”

The Dutch Football Team Lost in the Finals

`The dream is over, the Netherlands did not become world champions," Eventhough our Dutch Football Team had lost the finals of the Fifa World Cup 2010, the Dutch people are still very proud of what our Dutch Football Team had presented. Being landed in the second place among the 32 countries who participated the competition was not bad. Imagine we are the smallest country among the 32 countries but still we showed the world that we can beat the big ones.

Spain won their first world title after Andres Iniesta's 116th-minute strike broke the Netherlands' hearts. The reigning European champions have lifted the FIFA World Cup Trophy. Spain, winners of UEFA EURO 2008, were the first to accomplish this feat since West Germany won the 1974 world finals after conquering Europe in 1972.
Finals have gone into extra time, with 2006 and 2010 being the only time it has happened in consecutive FIFA World Cups. The other four deciders to feature extra time were in 1934, 1966, 1978 and 1994.

Bert van Marwijk, Netherlands coach
Obviously, we’re devastated by the result. We were down to ten men but almost made it to penalties. You have to say the better team won, but losing the World Cup Final is hard to take. Spain created far more chances, but Arjen Robben twice came within inches of scoring for us. If he had, I think we’d have been world champions.

Dirk Kuyt, Netherlands forward
It's so frustrating, I’m totally gutted. We were so close to winning the World Cup, and we had chances too. But you’ve got to take your chances. That aside, Spain are a terrific team.

Giovanni van Bronckhorst, Netherlands captain
We’ve come so close, and that makes it even more disappointing. We had to take one of our chances, and you never know what might have happened after that. We gave them too much space in midfield at times, but I’m still proud of this team. Having said that, once you’re in the Final, you want to win it.

Nigel de Jong, Netherlands midfielder
We’re incredibly disappointed. We gave it our best shot, but it wasn’t to be.

There is always next time, Guys. So, do your best for the UEFA EURO on 2012.
Still CONGRATULATIONS to the Dutch Football Team. YOU MUST BE PROUD OF YOURSELVES AND OF WHAT YOU DID!

The Fifa World Cup Trophy Travel Case

When you travel you need travel cases. When you transport expensive things you need an expensive travel case.
Luxury French fashion house Louis Vuitton has put its mark on the World Cup ... specifically on the World Cup trophy's carrying case.

The case, which was ordered by FIFA in March and presented by company officials and supermodel Naomi Campbell.
Commissioned by FIFA, the special order case, handmade by a single master craftsman in Louis Vuitton’s historic Asnières workshop near Paris, has been meticulously designed to accommodate the celebrated Trophy, which measures 36 cm in height, weighs 6.175 kg and is made of solid 18-carat gold with a base of semi-precious malachite. Covered in Louis Vuitton’s iconic Monogram canvas, the travel case is fitted with the company’s signature brass lock and corners, and has a dark brown lining that complements the Trophy’s rich gold.
The case opens at the front and at the top to allow the Trophy to be removed easily when, at the final on 11th July in Johannesburg, watched by many millions of people across the globe, which will be presented to the most powerful football team in the world.
Wish our players a very BIG GOOD LUCK!

The Fifa World Cup Trophy

This trophy symbolizes unity, power and talent. If the team has energetic/powerful members, has football talent and is united then the team can easily win this trophy.
This is the Fifa World Cup Trophy.

The trophy is 36.8cm high, made of solid 18-carat gold, weighs 4,970 grams and the base contains two layers of semi-precious malachite. The trophy was designed by Silvio Gazzaniga, an Italian artist.
According to FIFA rules, the new trophy cannot be won outright, as the regulations state that it shall remain FIFA's own possession. The winners keep it until the next Soccer World Cup and receive a gold-plated replica (rather than the solid gold original).
The name of each winning team and the year they won is engraved, in English, on the base of the Trophy. There are enough spaces to last until the Soccer World Cup 2038.
Every team dreams that his team will be engraved in this sovereign trophy especially the Dutch Football team.

The Power To See The Unseen

Do you believe in card reading?
Many people lost their loved ones during accidents or have been killed in mysterious ways. These people want to have an explanation why these events had happened. So, they go to psychic. They think that psychic readings can answer their queries.
Card readers or psychic exists because there are people who believe in them. Psychic uses different things like ball, palm and more to foretell the events. Another one which is very common, is using cards, the Tarot cards. Many card readers use the tarot cards to read the past, present and future events. The tarot has four suits corresponding to the suits of conventional playing cards. Until now the tarot has also found use by mystics and occultists in efforts at divination or as a map of mental and spiritual pathways.
There are so many online psychic readings. These readers have the power to see objects or events that cannot be perceived by the senses. They are attuned to spiritual dimensions, and they may receive messages as visions, or sounds, or intuitions.
It is advisable to search for genuine psychic because you are entrusting your personal questions and you never know who you will share this information with, as your questions are vital to your life. So, you should find an authentic psychic whom you can trust, can answer your questions and can calm you down.

Funny Monday, I Broke the Accident Case

The lawyer's son wanted to follow in his father's footsteps, so he went to law school. He graduated with honors, and then went home to join his father's firm. At the end of his first day at work he rushed into his father's office, and said, "Father, father, in one day I broke the accident case that you've been working on for ten years!"

His father responded: "You idiot, we could live on the funding of that case for another ten years!"

About this Blog

I make this blog for foreigners who will live in this country, THE NETHERLANDS. Foreigners who are engaged or married they have to learn a lot of things about their new home like the culture, architectures, landscape, government, dikes etc. Especially the Dutch language which is very important in their social life. It is very difficult if they cannot communicate with other people. Most people speak Dutch, only few speaks English.
For visitors and readers, this will give you an idea what this country is. This small country ranks no. 5 in the economic stability in EUROPE. Their architectures like palaces, castles, dikes, ports (air and sea) are amazing.
Their culture is very interesting.
