Ghent inhabitants are very proud of the fact that their city once (in 2004) won the City-People-Light Award and received three stars from the Michelin guide for its lighting. January next year there will be a regular Light Festival in Ghent (held once in three years). In the meantime I’ll show you the night city as of January 2014.
Happy New Year everyone!
The lucky thirteen has come to an end. One of my achievements in the last year was reaching the total run of 800 km. I registered all my workouts in a Google Drive spreadsheet (you can use this document as a template if you wish). Among other things, it gives you a forecast on the total run at the end of the year, which is a very good motivation. It forced me for one to run 25 km in the last two days of 2013.
This cute little blue vintage train was spotted today at the Amersfoort Central train station:
Whether it’s a well-maintained old piece or just a mockup, I don’t know.
Happy Friday the 13th! Bruce Miller, the current maintainer of DKLang, is bringing great news for Delphi developers.
It’s been five years since DKLang Localization Package was last revised (time flies!). You might think that it had been abandoned, but no, it did its intended job well enough and it was solid enough that it didn’t need an update.
I’d like to show you a bit of northern Dutch summer in our damp off-season. Last June we’ve visited the city of Leeuwarden (Frisian: Ljouwert), situated in the very north of Holland. It is the capital city of the Friesland province, which is famous for its language that makes very little sense to an average Dutch.
It’s automn here again. Some annoyed expats keep insisting there’s only just this season in Holland, but that’s not true.
We are fortunate enough to live in a very picturesque woodland area. One of these days we went on a hike in one of numerous forests called Baarnse Bos and situated near the equally picturesque village Baarn (which I posted about five years ago).
It’s been a while since I wrote about the masters of drive and female vocals, one of my favourites, Stream of Passion. They’re still there and have even recently toured in Moscow and Saint Petersburg, which they posted about on their Facebook page.
Just before those, very special for both sides, events I’ve visited two performances happened with an interval of one week.
