This gives me the shivers. We owe it to people like Pete to sing in harmony.

Hart verloren aan Amerika, toen ik voor het eerst als 18-jarige voor 2.5 jaar naar Los Angeles (UCLA) ging. Daarna 9 jaar Europa, en weer terug naar de V.S., Cal. Texas, uiteindelijk gesetteld in Seattle WA met Texaanse man. Ga zelden of nooit naar IRL NL borrels.

Ja, mooi is het hier zeker, en cultureel gezien gebeurd er ook veel, maar het is geen gemakkelijke stad om vrienden te maken. Helemaal niet wanneer je student-af bent, geen vaste werkkring hebt, en helemaal wanneer je zonder kinderen, of kerkgenootschap door het leven gaat. http://www.kpluwonders.org/content/why-seattle-freeze-so-hard-melt

I love Annabelle's voice, so soothing, takes away all the fear you might feel about working with marzipan.

Looking for Online info on Commodore C286 I came across your website +Richard Lagendijk I had no idea someone might collect them! I linked my blog post to your site, who knows, you may get more hits that way. I sure hope my blog will get more visitors who leave comments. Bloggers love comments, you know.

Story
Tagline
Writing Artist, Architectural Tourguide and Organic Gardener
Introduction
Writing Artist, Organic Cook and Gardener, Cultural Tour Guide, Colorist, Eco Green, sometimes Blue; Pragmatic to the Bone.Originally from the Netherlands I make my home in the Pacific Northwest with husband and pooch. My background lies in multicultural theater. Over time the balance tipped over to studio + literary arts. I'm working on a screenplay based on a novel about art, love and redemption in a cold country, and a memoir about growing up on a nut farm and coming out halfway sane.
Bragging rights
Core members of American/Dutch artist collective Taller Amsterdam called me "Mama Grande" (I wore many a hat). Stood at cradle of Multicultural Theater in the Netherlands with African-American Director Rufus Collins† and Surinamese Director Henk Tjon†. Worked for Netherlands/Turkish Theater Company with Vasif Öngören†. Wrote storybook for three of Luly Yang's Runway Fashion Shows, and was her speech writer. Have been presenting architectural tours of Rem Koolhaas - OMA /LMN's Seattle Central Public Library since the opening in May 2004.

Eight years ago we arrived at the Jefferson County Animal Shelter and were greeted by about six large dogs, each in their own kennel. At the very end a little white and caramel pup barked as loud as the big guys "take me, take me." The handlers told us we could open the door to the kennel, and she jumped in my arms. Still reluctant to take on the responsibility I asked what they knew about her beside what was stated on her paperwork. They said she had to be a Basenji terrier mix, gave me a leash and suggested I'd take her for a walk on the grounds. Meanwhile my husband learned there was no —leaving to think it over. "There's two other parties interested, if they return before you, she'll be gone." So here are, Mocha nearly nine. To the nice guys over there, we thank you for telling us not to waste any time!

We're boring customers, we always eat the same things. Yet, this means we get the best service we can wish for at Azuma. The moment someone sees our faces, whether it's the owner/ sushi chef, his wife or the waiters, we've got our miso soup in front of us about the same time we sit down. Got to love that. Also love the food. It's family friendly, and for some reason (yes!) children who eat at Azumi are well behaved and enjoy their pickin's.

We used to live a few blocks away from this Trader Joe's. I walked over every day, as though living in Europe again, to pick up daily needs and some friendly banter with staff members. Trader Joe's is still one of our favorite merchants, love the goods, the prices and the attitude.
